Life and Afterlife in Ancient Egypt

Lesson One Discussion: Life and Afterlife in Ancient Egypt No unread replies. No replies. The 10 Principles of Ma’at are simple rules for living a well-intentioned life on Earth. In some ways they analogous to the teachings of Zen Buddhism and the samurai code of bushido from Japan, but they represent a much more ancient fount of knowledge. The 42 Negative Confessions from the Papyrus of Ani have a broader application that is meant to prepare one for entrance into the afterlife. Still, their purpose is to give people a guide to living in harmony with their deities, their priests, their pharaoh, and their neighbors. Select two (2) of the Principles of Ma’at that you feel are necessary for you to live a more well-balanced life.  Select seven (7) lines from the 42 Negative Confessions that you feel can be used to maintain order and justice in a civilized society. Post your choices with a brief explanation of your selections. Compare your choices with those in the post that immediately precedes yours and submit a comment that reflects your first impressions about how your choices differ or coincide. 10 Principles of Maat and 42 Negative Confessions.pdf
