Encyclopedia > Hu (mythology)

In Egyptian mythology, Hu is the god of the word which Ra used to create the world (and is also the word itself). He, and Sia, were created from a drop of blood that came from Ra's penis. They both represent the mind and wisdom of Ra.


Hu also is referred to by the ancient Egyptians as the "divine utterance". As such it is analogous to Christianity's logos, the Om of Hinduism, etc.
