Russian Traditions: Bright Week of Renewal & Pascha Greetings

Russian Paskha & pisanki

Russian Paskha & pisanki2

Russian paskha bread (called paskha in Ukraine and kulich in Russia) and pisanki – the beautifully hand-painted easter eggs

What is the Russian Easter called? The true word is Pascha – pronounced as ‘Paskha.’

This is the Russian spelling: пасха

The same word is used in various languages. There is a lot of forbidden history and linguistics that is behind this word, but I’ll leave it for my special posts on Patreon and for my Forbidden History workshops.

The day of the Russian Easter, or Pascha – a Sunday, is called: Svetloye Voskresenie.

This has a very loaded forbidden history and linguistics meaning:

Voskresenie is Sunday in Russian, but it also simultaneously means ‘resurrection’ or ‘rebirth.’

Svetloye, usually translated as ‘bright,’ also means ‘full of light.’

The Russian word ‘svet’ is a quintessential forbidden linguistics proof of how screwed up and falsified our history is, all discussed in great detail in my FORBIDDEN HISTORY
​& FORGOTTEN ORIGINS
 webinars.

Therefore, Svetloye Voskrsenie means: Bright Sunday.

But it also means the Rebirth of the Light.

The day after, Monday, is called Svetliy Ponedelnik (Bright Monday), then there is Svetliy Vtornik (Bright Tuesday), and so on. The whole week after Pascha is called Svetlaya Nedelia – the Bright Week, or the week of renewal (I’d say the Enlightened Week would be a much better translation).

A Russian priest, who, unlike the Catholic priests, is not only allowed but encouraged to marry, is called Batyushka (Dear Father).

See how Russian Easter (Paskha) is celebrated: Happy Russian Easter! How, Where & What Happens: Moscow, Kiev, Jerusalem!

Paskha greeting:

It’s usually called out first by Batyushka, or anyone really, say your neighbor, passerby or a friend may greet you this way during Pascha.

They call out to you: Khristos Voskres(-e)!

It’s spelled like this in Russian: Христос воскрес(-е)!

This means: Christ is Risen!

The answer is: Voistinu Voskres(-e)!

In Russian: Воистину воскрес(-е)!

This means: Truly, He Is Risen!

If a neighbor or friend greets you like this and you answer, usually you kiss each other on both cheeks three times as a sign of the sisterly/brotherly love.

Why ‘e’ is in parentheses:
Both with and without the ending ‘e’ is correct and widely used. With no ‘e’ is a more contemporary version. My observation is (but I never conducted any studies or polls)  that in Ukraine they use it more without the ‘e’ and in Russia more with the ‘e’ – the old church Slavic language (hate it when they call it ‘Slavonic’ – I never do).

I think it’s a beautiful newer tradition, which is only about 1000 – 1200 years old. But there is so much more to the story… there were much more truly ancient, beautiful and mystical traditions, which existed well before Christianity, and they are discussed in my FORBIDDEN HISTORY ​& FORGOTTEN ORIGINS webinar series!

  1. Reblogged this on 1EarthUnited and commented:

    Awesome etymology, I’m thinking Easter is pre-Christ and possibly pagan tradition, as well as Vedic! So much hidden and manipulated history as revealed in your Webinars!

  2. Always learning, Lada! I didn’t know about Svetloye Voskresenie and Svetlaya Nedelia, and yes, I’m with you: Enlightened, more than Bright. And Slavic and not Slavonic! I never understood where that term came from…

  3. Russian spelling: пасха – is close to Danish “påske” or before “å” was invented “paaske”. Around this time evening 30th of April there used to be bonfires to celebrate saint Valborg, could be a connection here, going longer back than Christianity naturally, also if we split the year into 8 pieces, then this date become significant. The bonfire had moved to midsummer, where a big witch “doll” is burned . . .and flies to Brocken (small mountain top) in Harzen, Germany.

  4. Interesting that the French word for easter is Pâques. As you say there is a lot of hidden stuff gradually coming to light with the internet. No wonder dark state wants to put it in a strait jacket!! Trouble with genies is that once they’re out, they’re out.
