Join us for MAAT In The Morning: Readings from THE HUSIA - Sacred Wisdom Of Ancient Egypt.

MAAT – Righteousness, Truth, Justice, Harmony, Balance, Reciprocity, Order

The significance of Maat is that it is developed to the point that it embraced all aspects of existence, including the basic equilibrium of the universe, the relationship between constituent parts, the cycle of the seasons, heavenly movements, religious observations and fair dealings, honesty and truthfulness in social interactions.

The ancient Egyptians had a deep conviction of an underlying holiness and unity within the universe. Cosmic harmony was achieved by correct public and ritual life. Any disturbance in cosmic harmony could have consequences for the individual as well as the state.
