I was walking through the halls of the university and saw a flyer for a Yoga class with the tag line, “find inner peace”. For Africans, is it rational to seek inner peace without also disrupting the condition of isft that envelops us since the personal and social are entwined?
Jacob Carruthers stated that “The Niswt’s overall function, like that of Wosir, is the establishment of Maat in Tawi, i.e., to establish conditions where enlightenment will prevail over ignorance.”
isft is a Kemetic word that can be translated as wrong-doing or disorder.
niswt is the title of the ruler of Kemet. Pharaoh is a foreign term.
wosir is the divinity that the Greeks called Osiris.
tawi was the national name of Kemet. It referred to the united two lands. tawi literally translates as “two lands”.
