Tutankhamun, commonly known as King Tut, is the most known pharaoh of ancient Egypt, even though he died at the age of eighteen of unknown causes. He was the last of his royal family and ruled during the end of the Eighteenth Dynasty of the New Kingdom, 1332 BC – 1323 BC. His father was the pharaoh Akhenaten and just to keep everything in the family, his mother was Akhenaten’s sister. Tutankhamun took the throne at eight or nine years of age. He was physically disabled with a deformity to his left foot. He had scoliosis and other issues so that he needed a cane. Pharaohs were idolized after their deaths, but interestingly, Tutankhamun was idolized in the same way during his lifetime.
The name Tutankhamun is said to mean “The Living Image of Amun.” Amun, Amon, Ammon, Amen is the god of the air, and one of the eight principle deities in the Egyptian pantheon. It is said that Amun created himself and then everything else in the universe before separating. Amun’s role as a deity changed over time and by the New Kingdom Amun had merged with Ra, the ancient sun god, to become Amun-Ra. Am means to honor or serve, un means to rise or spring up, and ra means to be giving or loving. Similarly, the word Tutankhamun can be translated in the Sacred Way and advances the Philosophical System of AH, the Sacred Knowledge for living with the Lord. Here is a verse from the Veda for authority.
For authority put forth as the sun and regard anyone.
