    The Kalevala: Finnish Shamanism

    Here is English-language translation about Finnish Kalevala:
    http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/kveng/

    What you think about that?

    Personally, I'm kalevala-Shamanist and I want to follow traditions of my ancestors. Odinism not belongs to Finland, and I think that our ancient religions would be the best of my nation -smil

    Probably true, since Odinism is Germanic.

    I have loved the Kalevala since I was a child. An famous theosophical commentary is Pekka Ervast's
    Key to the Kalevala. There is also an attractive Tarot deck from U.S. Games, called simply the Kalevala Tarot. Finally, here is a link to a PDF of the English translation given in your message.

    You're quite welcome! I also have a PocketPC version of the Kalevala that I read when I'm on the train. If you have a PocketPC and are interested, I can look up the link or post the file somewhere for you to download.

    Post The Kalevala Heritage



    The Finnish record company Ondine has produced a CD "The Kalevala Heritage, Archive recordings of Ancient Finnish songs"

    The CD contains a selection of original recordings, the oldest of which have a considerable rarity value, since they were made already at the turn of the 20th century. The CD was produced in collaboration with the Folklore archives of the Finnish Literature Society.
