Hope for good weekend. *Hugs to followers*
This is an amazing site: It allows you to browse a map of the temples at Karnak, and zoom it to view close-up photos of individual inscriptions. Typset hieroglyphs and transliterations are provided.
No need to speak French to use this site.
The coffin lid of Djeddjehutyiuefankh, fourth prophet of Amun at Karnak during the time of pharaoh Osorkon II, at the Ashmolean Museum.
Anyone have a few praise/prayer type things for Djehuty? I’m planning on giving him an offering this weekend because of reasons.
(Yes, I’m giving him chai. A large mug of it. No, you don’t understand how large this mug is. I will post pictures.)
I would reach out to satdeshret.
I make offerings every day and make larger formal ritual every full moon.
However, this weekend I will be in Baltic Sea cruise, so I may only say prayer and share with him chai :-)
If you need prayers, ritual texts and invocations… to read or use for inspiration… then ask me for links. I have many. Including hieroglyphics for some of AE hymns :-)
My Internet access will be sporadical, but I hope to find places with Wi-fi during travel.

What have others found as far as scents they’ve noticed that seem related to any Kemetic deities?
Hetheru - roses, lilies, sandalwood, acacia, frankincense.
Sekhmet - spicy scents; scents that make your nose take notice immediately; roses, sandalwood, frankincense.
Djehuty: Frankincense, Coffee (he loves coffee), and citrus-y scents like orange. He also seems to respond well to my Eucalyptus incense.
Yes, the frankincense, and also a mix of frankincense and myrrh, seems that he likes these scents a lot.
I’ve been told he also likes kyphi.

I wanted to apologize. I was quick to ask cause I was excited about “omg my first discussion and didn’t do any research beforehand.
I thought it was an interesting idea for a discussion. in the end it was stupid.
There was nothing stupid IMHO… it was interesting topic to talk about! What suddenly made you uncomfortable?..
