The Mythology of DTQ Part IV

As you may recall, I’ve previously written on various mythological characters who show up in Daniel and the Triune Quest. There was the Super Hot Surya, Ravanna the Weirdo, and Shakti the Uber Feminist. I now continue this most excellent series by introducing Shiva, the third god of the Trimurti.

In Hinduism, three gods outrank all the others—Brahma the Creator, Vishnu the Preserver, and Shiva the Destroyer. Except for when they don’t. As in the case of Shakti, who sometimes is the all in all of everything, even when she isn’t. Remember?  If this doesn’t make sense to you, then congratulations. You finally understand Hindu Mythology.

Anyway, Shiva’s role in the Trimurti is to…is to…um…well, it’s complicated. If you read his page on Wikipedia, you’ll leave quite confused.

Divine Destroyer and Recycler of the Universe? Sure.

Oh wait…also sometimes creator and sustainer instead of those lazy bums, Brahma and Vishnu—oh…okay.

Fierce and scary? Why not?

But also NOT fierce or scary, okay? So just deal with it.

Divine yogi? Naturally.

Did I mention he’s also nothingness? Oh boy.

 

Like every other god in Hinduism, Shiva incarnated himself into different avatars throughout the ages. Through these avatars, he accomplished various feats and took on different roles, which maybe muddied the waters a bit. No matter how you slice it, though, Shiva is a complex god whose roles are considered both good (destroys illusions, paving the way for beneficial change) and evil (literally destroys the universe).

In Daniel and the Triune Quest, he shows up as an incarnation of the Enemy, and the Master of Shakti. He relishes his role as destroyer—which seems fitting. Luckily, Daniel, Ben, and Gabriela who belong to a different God whose nature is trustworthy, loving, and fatherly. Who doesn’t have to destroy to bring life, but is one who gave up everything to so that we might have HIS life.


DSS in Top 100 Twice

One thing you should know about authors…we obsessively check the sales rankings of our books on Amazon.

So, naturally, I was happy when my obsessiveness paid off this past week when Daniel and the Sun Sword was in the top 100 for its primary category…twice! Hooray!

Christian Fiction Review by Peter Younghusband

5.0 out of 5 stars (Amazon)
Better Than Its Predecessor. Takes This Series To The Next Level. You Won’t Be Disappointed.
on September 15, 2017

Every author and every reader anticipate that a sequel will be just as good or better than the previous….Well, I can say that this is a better story than its predecessor (Daniel and the Sun Sword)….

Lumbatis has shown more of the biblical aspects of who God is, the Trinity, and the Gospel message….

The account where Daniel meets Jesus is powerful but gentle and bypasses the head and ministers straight to the heart….

I know Lumbatis researched the mythology and culture….[and] translated this research into the plot and setting of the novel very well. It is great world building….Makes it very credible and real.

 Daniel and the Triune Quest is a blast—a breathtaking thrill ride!

A blast—a breathtaking thrill ride! Tantalizing prose, and…deliciously well-written. I fell head-over-heels for the witty, sarcastic dialogue. Daniel and Ben’s adventures are action-adventure spelled out, along with a hefty dose of drama, comedy, and memorable characters.

The action-packed narrative undoubtedly has the power to lure kids away from video games, and the spiritual messages are core, buoyed by dazzling anime-like visuals presented through…clear-cut learning arcs for the two boys.

Parents…should jump at this one and bookmark Nathan Lumbatis for future reference.

Wow! My husband and I couldn’t put this book down. It sure got our hearts pumping! Exciting, surprising, inspiring — but also arresting. It made me stop and think about the realities of God’s purpose for our lives, the very real “battles” we face, and His power & strength available to us in the midst of it all. Rich imagery. So good!

HES 5th Grade Linc

On Wednesday, March 20th, I had the wonderful pleasure of teaching the Highlands Elementary 5th Grade Linc students about writing books.

We had a blast!

During the last half of the class, they all tried their hand at planning out stories they would like to write, which they then shared with the class. These kids were brilliant and creative, and an awesome audience!

Thank you Mrs. Harden for the invite!

My only regret is that I have only one picture to share. But, one is better than none…

200 Page Benchmark/DTQ Companion Video

Today, this 9th day of February, in the year 2019, I’m proud to declare that I, Sir Charles Nathan Fitzherbert Abernathy Lumbatis have written 200 pages in the novel, Daniel and the Serpent’s Abyss (DSA).

DSA 200 Pages

Fitzherbert Abernathy aren’t really my middle names, but it sounded more noble.

I know, I know. You might be thinking, “Nathan. Big deal.” But look, People, I don’t have loads of time to write. So reaching the 200 page mark means I’ve got only approximately 100 pages to go before Daniel and the Serpent’s Abyss is done.

Well, the first draft anyway.

So, in celebration, I am uploading a companion video I created for Daniel and the Triune Quest. This was created as a background for presenting the book at schools and is intended to accompany a script. So, while part of the progression might not make sense, I hope you enjoy the music and visuals of the characters and places in India which inspired the story.

Enjoy!

The Mythology of Daniel and the Triune Quest: Part III

Now continues my blog series featuring notable characters from Indian mythology who are (more importantly) immortalized in the pages of Daniel and the Triune Quest. You can find the other posts HERE and HERE. 

As I’ve noted in the past, getting definite answers from the Hindu mythos is no easy task. But, here’s me next attempt. In 500 words or less, here is everything you need to know about…

Shakti, Goddess of…um…Feminism, I guess?

shakti statue

 

Shakti, or शक्ति, literally means “power, ability, strength, might, effort, energy, capability. Shakti is both a goddess and a primordial cosmic energy pervasive throughout the entire universe.

As a goddess, she is the personification of feminine creative power. In Shaktism, she is the ultimate, Supreme Being. Unlike, say, in Shaivism, where that lout Shiva gets all the credit.

shiva women's lib

Naturally, there is no one “being” who is Shakti, because Hinduism LOVES to recycle gods and goddesses (and hopefully PLASTIC STRAWS).

So, get ready for this, Shakti often manifests as the goddesses Tripura Sundari or Parvati. Oh, wait. And also, Ganga, Yamuna, Kamakshi, Kanakadurga, Mahalakshmi, Mahasaraswati, Meenakshi, Manasa, Yellamma, Poleramma, Gangamma, Perantalamma, Durga, and Kali.

shakti goddesses

I mean, because…you know…why not?

Shakti is the divine, feminine counterpart to Shiva, and this is more or less how she shows up in Daniel and the Triune Quest. When Daniel and Ben reach India, Shakti presents herself as a goddess, but subservient to the Enemy in the form of Shiva.

And, instead of being motherly, Shakti is in her more…shall we say…aggressive forms as a goddess of destruction and judgment. Yay!

In the book, however, her true form is one of the key surprises. So, what are you waiting for? Pick up a copy of Daniel and the Triune Shield to see how Daniel and Ben deal with her bad attitude and split-personality.

What’s Your Plot?

What’s Your Plot?

This weekend, my wife and I were asked to share our testimonies with our Sunday School class. This got me thinking: if I was a character in a book, what would the plot for my spiritual life look like?

How have I grown (or not, for that matter)?  

What problems have I overcome?

Where is the Author taking me?

Should I be more mature than I am now?

It’s made me think hard about my spiritual growth over my meager 36 years, which has been a good exercise. I’ve written out the outline of my growth below, and I challenge you to evaluate your own spiritual growth as well. It’s humbling (and sometimes surprising) to recognize that even in times that seem slow or monotonous, God is at work preparing your for the next chapter.

 

My Character Arc So Far…

Childhood: God wakes Nathan up in the middle of the night and shows him his sin. Nathan repents and his nominal faith becomes genuine saving faith.

Theme: Salvation

Early Adolescence: Nathan fears he is isn’t truly saved and learns about the certainty of salvation.

Theme: Certainty of redemption. 

Mid-Adolescence: Nathan struggles with acceptance and self-worth (like every teenager) and God teaches him about identity and self-worth in Christ.

Theme: Identity as a Son of God

Late Adolescence: God does not allow Nathan’s uncertainty about the future prevent moving forward; he opens the door for college and kicks Nathan through.

Theme: Testing Faith

Early Twenties: Nathan gets married and starts a career. He learns that despite his insecurities, he must lead, serve, and prioritize that person above his own interests and feelings, and that he also must help others grow closer to God through counseling—all despite his still being a work in progress. He is overwhelmed.

Theme: Recognition of his need for God to fill him everyday.

Late Twenties/Early Thirties: Nathan and his wife move home and start a family. Nathan learns what true fear is and must learn to trust God with not only his life, but the lives of his family.

Theme: Faith in God’s promises

Present: Nathan must recognize that he does NOT have everything figured out and “together,” and is put in situations requiring him to exercise his faith in God’s goodness even when life is chaotic and the future is uncertain. Old lessons about trust and identity as a child of God are learned in a deeper way.

Theme: Dependence on God and recognition of personal limitations.

First Fruits of Resurrection

But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive. (1 Corinthians 15: 20-22)

A theme of death and resurrection is woven throughout Daniel and the Triune Quest because it is a central tenet of Christianity, but also because it is something that resonates within all of us. We are hard-wired to hope that our aging, sickly, ever-failing bodies can’t be all there is—that there must be something more.  We all long for a new, immortal, incorruptible form.

Praise God that our belief and hope is not in vain, and that we will follow our Savior through death and into Life!

July 31st, I’ll be appearing on the Write Stuff Radio with Parker J. Cole. Here’s a link to one of the most recent shows.

Website

If you’ve taken a gander at my homepage lately, you’ll have noticed the look has changed a bit. I linked my new counseling website (nathanlumbatiscounseling.wordpress.com) with my writing website. Head on over to take a look.

 

B&N

This will probably seem lame to you all, but it never gets old to me. I was walking through Barnes and Noble last night and stumbled across Daniel and the Sun Sword mixed in with other books in the Young Adult section. Not in the Local Authors section, mind you. In the “Real Young Adult Books” section. It gave me a little thrill.
