NOTE – Since I only found info in Polish and it will take too much time to translate, I threw all into google translator and it should be clear.
Hands of God
Native Polish Church – rodzimowierczy religious association, referring to the ethnic, pre-Christian beliefs of the Slavs. Warsaw is the seat of religion. In temples across the country work focused followers of the region.
Name of organization
Chram Mazowiecki, harvest festival (2007)
Polish Church native title is modeled on the name of an association of descendants of the ancient Church (Native) Americans, Indians: Native American Church. Native Polish Church, a model home of the American Church, also refers to the old (pre-Christian) beliefs, ethnic minorities, while at the same time respecting the religion arrived later. The term itself in the name of the church was used only in the sense of religious organizations and their followers of the clergy.
Basic assumptions of the religious
Kołomir – mark symbolizing the cyclical rhythm of life and run time
Faith native Polish Church on the one hand is based on henoteizmie, on the other hand the synthesis of pantheism (or even panenteizmu) and polytheism – that is the belief that the fate of the world decides cosmic force called God Most High (by many of the RKP rodzimowierców identified with Metawszechświatem) the various manifestations of (successive incarnations) are other, lesser gods. Although officially the supreme god RKP is called Świętowit, then in common use as popular are the other names from the top of the pantheon of Slavic gods rodzimowierczego (such as Perun and Svarog), members of the RKP accept because that God the Supreme regardless of the name under which he will worshiped God will always remain supreme, and its real, real name (if any at all any) will always remain beyond the limited human perception. The members of this union believe that in a form (as an eternal, absolute, infinite and unlimited – in itself containing all the arguments of his being), the Supreme God can not be described commonly used concepts of good and evil, human or other subjective criteria. At the same time accept, however, that these criteria (although at different scales) are other, lesser gods and goddesses, located closer to the various spheres of human existence. The other gods and goddesses (which is the simplified forms of the Most High God) exercise control over specific aspects related to nature (which are often even identifying).
Cake – the type of Christmas bread.
Native Polish Church has three main religious symbols. These are the Hands of God (theme present in the vessel in the White rediscovered near Lodz) – as an ideogram signifying the concept of God Most High, while the balance of the universe, and which seeks to Nature, idol zbruczyński – such as the iconographic representation universe, as well as a representation of the principal deities of the pantheon of Slavic and Świętowit of Wolin.
Chram Mazowiecki, Midsummer Night (2009)
* Feast of spring – the spring equinox – niece sacred fire, melting Marzanna, decorating eggs;
* Fire and Water Celebration – Summer Solstice – fires burning, walking on embers, ritual baths;
* Harvest Festival – the autumnal equinox – the blessing of crops, the ritual feast;
* Mating Festival – Winter Solstice – putting the tree of life at home, a ritual feast Tryzna.
Celebrating major holidays are usually cyclical and generally available to the public – to participate in them may also be persons from outside the compound, which is close to the native faith and culture. Feasts accompanied by an appropriate liturgy, led ofiarnik or designated żerca.
Swiatowid with Zbrucz
Native Polish Church recognizes as part of human nature (one of the creations by the cosmos), while a part of society. Thus, it requires respect for Nature and Human Rights and Social Governance (somehow universal compliance with the principles of social coexistence, common throughout the ages for most of the known cultures). Prohibits the killing, rape, robbery and theft. Tells respect for the relationships that organize society – from the family after the state. Orders to protect wildlife and considered sacred creature. At the same time with this – including Recognizing that nature does not need any so called. holy books (or the Ten Commandments written in the form of rules) that its rights have been respected, and not wanting unnecessary to multiply entities beyond measure, and recognizing that nothing can replace a man of independent thinking and the ability of empathy – trying to avoid the formulation of these obvious for most of the rules in the form somehow finished the rules for proper life (usually limited to basic statements of the kind of "live with dignity and be the right man", or "do what you want, bylebyś while not injure others").
Structure of the organization
Świętowit from Wolin
Native Polish Church is a church open, not uzurpującym the exclusive rights – both in matters of personal faith and church and organizational affiliation. Members of the RKP believe a Slavic their ancestors were followers of the same God, who in his own way and worship, Christians, Muslims and others. Polish Church to the home so it can involve a person who also belongs to yet another religious connection (not necessarily rodzimowierczego). Thus, accession to the Polish Church native does not require such a formal act of breaking with the past – until now professed by the candidate – religious system. At the same time a formal condition for accession to the native Polish church is to submit the relevant declaration of accession, which is simultaneously a kind of confession of faith.
As the Slavic rodzimowierstwo almost by definition, (eg by a distinct ethnicity) determines its reach, Native Polish Church does not consider it necessary to also verify the origin of their potential candidates. It is assumed that the Pole is a Pole who believed (and bearing in mind that conceived Polish identity was used Polish Church native name). In the design of the program simply declares that the member can be anyone, regardless of the ethnic ancestry in his family tree, as the nation is above all a common language and culture. At the same time – despite the fact that one of the requirements of the declaration of accession to the association is to provide the ID number of the candidate – clearly did not preclude the possibility of adopting the RKP another person (especially of Slavic origin) nationality.
This church is an association of religious-based democracy. Declares a far-reaching tolerance and opposition to racism, nazism and the spread of intolerance towards people of different religions, different backgrounds and nationalities. Position in it are kadencyjne and covered by the election. Members are exempt from membership fees.
NOTE – I will add excellent photos from their official website in coming posts.November 25, 2011 at 7:10 pm #367960

Great thread, Wilko.
"do what you want, bylebyś while not injure others" – I think Google Translate missed something here, lol… it should be "do what you want, as long as you don't injure others."
This actually gets to the original and core meaning of the word "violence." Today, it has taken on the meaning of "bodily harm" but it actually means "lack of consent." With this in mind, we can see that it very much relates to the word "violation." Recognizing when violence occurs and preventing it is the essence of honor and this is sorely lacking from today's society where people just exploit so long as they don't "break the law" that's written on paper and can be amended or avoided by the powerful.November 25, 2011 at 8:08 pm #367966
Indeed, Husarz, google translate did not do best job, but it is Friday night and I am too tired to do it myself.
Thanks also for PM about Zadruga, but I will do this another time, as it is unrelated to this church (Zadruga is more political movement/organization with neopagan ideology, while this is church with pure religious baseline).

Call me picky, particular or whatever! but I think that the real meaning instead of "do what you want, as long as you don't injure others." is "do what you want, as long as you don't harm others." Maybe it could be translated this way "your freedom to swing your arm ends where my nose begins". Just a digression, that's all. Carry on.December 21, 2011 at 3:51 am #367968
This is another excellent and informative thread, thank you so much!October 6, 2012 at 8:11 pm #367969
RKP is bullshit, they are very "antifacistic".Słowiańska Wiara is……….ok but my favorite is Rodzima Wiara(Native faith) a mix of paganism and nationalism.
