Today is a special day. It is the day of Mithra (Mehregan)!
Mithra, the Lord of the wide pastures, who has a thousand ears and ten thousand eyes (hears all, sees all) has often been depicted as a young man, the boy coming of age, who is slaying a bull.
In ancient times the slaying of the bull used to be a ritual coinciding with the autumn (in the northern hemisphere) festival of Mehregan, or the day of Mithra. This ritual, like many others, had both a religious/cultural significance as well as a practical aspect (meat).
It took a special kind of man to literally take the bull by the horn and slit it’s throat. Beyond being strong he had to espouse the virtues associated with Mithra.
