On entend de plus en plus parler de Graal, de chaudron dans les milieux du féminin sacré.

En bonne vieille médium qui aime aussi les choses rationnelles et qui a été historienne, j'ai envie de vous faire un petit point là-dessus : d'où vient le terme?

 

Le Graal en tant qu'objet mythique apparait à la fin du 12ème siècle chez Chrétien de Troyes, qui passe par écrit les histoires arthuriennes à travers "Perceval oul le Conte du Graal". On ignore si Chrétien de Troyes crée l'histoire de toute pièce, fait un synthèse de contes oraux et/ou anciens, ou modifie une vielle histoire pour celui qui lui a commandé lhistoire.

Le Graal désigne un plat creux, une amphore, un recipient dans lequel on peut mettre quelques chose, et ce pour toutes les etymologies possibles évoquées.

A noter que cette apparition du Graal au 12ème siècle en France, apparait dans un contexte houleux et donc, peut être de propagande : guerre franco-anglaise ( dynsatie des Plantagenêts contre Capétiens), croisade contre les albigeois.

Il n'est pas associé au Christ au départ dans les écrits, mais peu à peu, il va y être associé et l'on va parler de Saint-Graal ou de saint-Calice (le coupe utilisée par le Christ lors de son dernier repas - la Cène).

Du coté Celtique, et il est fort possible que Chrétien de Troyes ait lu tous ces anciennes histoires celtes, le graal fait penser au chaudron de Dagda, le dieu-druide. 

 

Nous avons un texte irlandais (ou bout de texte) datant du 15ème siècle et appelé : Le Chaudron de Poésie, qui semble faire référence à d'anciennes traditions celtiques, d'où certains analysent un comme un système de soin énergétique celte/irlandais, avec 3 chaudrons, 3 centres énergétiques principaux (Miranda gray par exemple, sans nommer la tradition celtique, s'en inspire).

 

Je n'ai pas trouvé de traduction française sur le net. 

Pour ma part, je trouve qu'il y de la magie dans cette poésie :-)

 

The Cauldron of Poesy
trans - Erynn Rowan Laurie 1995/1998

My perfect cauldron of warming
has been taken by the Gods from the mysterious abyss of the elements;
a perfect truth that ennobles from the center of being,
that pours forth a terrifying stream of speech.
I am Amirgen White-knee,
with pale substance and grey hair,
accomplishing my poetic incubation in proper forms,
in diverse colors.
The Gods do not give the same wisdom to everyone,
tipped, inverted, right-side-up;
no knowledge, half-knowledge, full knowledge --
for Eber Donn, the making of fearful poetry,
of vast, mighty draughts death-spells, of great chanting;
in active voice, in passive silence, in the neutral balance between,
in rhythm and form and rhyme,
in this way is spoken the path and function of my cauldrons.
Where is the root of poetry in a person; in the body or in the soul? Some say it is in the soul, 
for the body does nothing without the soul. Some say it is in the body were the arts are 
learned, passed through the bodies of our ancestors. It is said that this is the truth remaining 
over the root of poetry, and the wisdom in every person¹s ancestry does not come from the 
northern sky into everyone, but into every other person.
What then is the root of poetry and every other wisdom? Not hard; three cauldrons are born in every person -- the cauldron of warming, the cauldron of motion and the cauldron of wisdom.

The cauldron of warming is born upright in people from the beginning. It distributes wisdom to 
people in their youth.

The cauldron of motion, however, increases after turning; that is to say it is born tipped on its 
side, growing within.

The cauldron of wisdom is born on its lips and distributes wisdom in poetry and every other 
art.

The cauldron of motion then, in all artless people is on its lips. It is side-slanting in people of 
bardcraft and small poetic talent. It is upright in the greatest of poets, who are great streams of 
wisdom. Not every poet has it on its back, for the cauldron of motion must be turned by sorrow 
or joy.

Question: How many divisions of sorrow turn the cauldrons of sages? Not hard; four: longing 
and grief, the sorrows of jealousy, and the discipline of pilgrimage to holy places. These 
four are endured internally, turning the cauldrons, although the cause is from outside.
There are two divisions of joy that turn the cauldron of wisdom; divine joy and human joy.
There are four divisions of human joy among the wise -- sexual intimacy, the joy of health and 
prosperity after the difficult years of studying poetry, the joy of wisdom after the harmonious 
creation of poems, and the joy of ecstacy from eating the fair nuts of the nine hazels of the 
Well of Segais in the Sidhe realm. They cast themselves in multitudes, like a ram¹s fleece 
upon the ridges of the Boyne, moving upstream swifter than racehorses driven on midsummer¹s 
day every seven years.The Gods touch people through divine and human joys so that they are able to speak prophetic 
poems and dispense wisdom and perform miracles, giving wise judgment with precedents, and 
blessings in answer to every wish. The source of these joys is outside the person and added to 
their cauldrons to cause them to turn, although the cause of the joy is internal.
I sing of the cauldron of wisdom
which bestows the nature of every art,
through which treasure increases,
which magnifies every artisan,
which builds up a person through their gift.
I sing of the cauldron of motion
understanding grace,
accumulating wisdom
streaming ecstacy as milk from the breast,
it is the tide-water of knowledge
union of sages
stream of splendor
glory of the lowly
mastery of speech
swift intelligence
reddening satire
craftsman of histories
cherishing pupils
looking after binding principles
distinguishing meanings
moving toward music
propagation of wisdom
enriching nobilityennobling the commonplace
refreshing souls
relating praises
through the working of law
comparing of ranks
pure weighing of nobility
with fair words of the wise
with streams of sages,
the noble brew in which is boiled
the true root of all knowledge
which bestows according to harmonious principle
which is climbed after diligence
which ecstacy sets in motion
which joy turns
which is revealed through sorrow;
it is enduring fire
undiminishing protection.
I sing of the cauldron of motion.
The cauldron of motion
bestows, is bestowed
extends, is extended
nourishes, is nourished
magnifies, is magnified
invokes, is invoked
sings, is sung
keeps, is kept,
arranges, is arranged,
supports, is supported.Good is the well of poetry,
good is the dwelling of speech,
good is the union of power and mastery
which establishes strength.
It is greater than every domain,
it is better than every inheritance,
it bears one to knowledge,
adventuring away from ignorance
