In a religious pantheon brimming with 8,700 gods, the ancient Egyptians worshipped Ra ahead of all other gods. After all, Ra was the Egyptian god who created everything. In this role, Ra rose from a sea of turbulent chaos. Standing astride the primordial BenBen mound, creating himself, before begetting the remaining gods who formed the Ogdoad. Maat was the goddess epitomizing personifying truth, law, justice, morality, order, balance and harmony. As Maat’s father, Re was the primal cosmos’s ultimate arbiter of justice. Ra was a powerful god and his cult was central to the Egyptian belief system. As the pharaoh often strove to be seen to embody the gods on earth, they looked to associate themselves closely with Ra. From the Fourth Dynasty onwards, Egyptian kings held the title “Son of Re.” and “Re” was later incorporated into the throne name pharaoh’s adopted upon their accession to the throne. Facts About Ra Ancient Egyptians revered Ra their sun as the god who created everything Ra is closely connected to the Bennu Bird, Ben-Ben Stone and the Tree of Life myths Some archaeologists speculate the pyramids represent rays of sunlight connecting the pharaohs with Ra, the sun god. Ra was accompanied by the gods Horus, Thoth, Hathor, Anet, Abtu and Maat on his daily journey across the heavens The morning manifestation of Ra is known as “Khepri the scarab God” and his barque is called the “Barque of Millions of Years” The evening manifestation of Ra is known as the ram-headed god and his barque is known as the Khnum“Semektet” or “becoming weak” The sacred cobra encircling Ra’s crown symbolized royalty and divine authority. Ra’s right eye represented the Sun, while his left eye represented the moon Related Articles: Top 10 Eye of Ra Facts Ra the Creator God To the ancient Egyptians, Ra or “ray” symbolises sunshine, heat and fertile growth. Given the role the sun plays in nurturing crops and in Egypt’s desert climate, was a natural progression for the ancient Egyptians to see him in this manifestation as the creator of life. As he embodied creation, an attribute of his essence came to be represented in all other gods. Ancient Egyptians perceived every god as representing some form of Ra, while Ra similarly represents an aspect of each of their gods.
