Skírnismál Edda poem ritual

Scroll down for FREE pdf of The Edda poem Skírnismál

Here we have the original poem in Icelandic, and a translation into English — with understanding.
Note, that the verb drepa, which now means to kill, used to mean to touch. What has been seen as a threat in Skírnismál, is but opening our eyes to, and understanding for, what awaits us if we stagnate, if we live our material life only, if we take no heed about evolution, our spiritual evolution.
In the script we are given ideas on how to perform the ritual. We are given a solution for long lines, how not to lay the burden on kids to learn lines by heart:  We simply have one kid act, or mimic, without words, and another read or chant the lines.
We shall understand Skaði and Njörður, understand what Skírnir really is. Why Freyr is sad.
Freyr wants us to enjoy bounty, but he reminds us: one thing is necessary. And what would that be? That is to find divinity within.
What we see – amazingly enough –  in the poem Skírnismál is, that Gerður (i.e. we, mankind) actually knows about where to find divinity within.  We all know deep inside. We have to know that we know. Someone has to teach, explain, educate, give us the technique to nýsa niður into lognfara lundur Barri (nirvaana).
