  According to our Holy Orthodox Church and Tradition this great Mystery (Sacrament) of Baptism is commonly seen by all who call themselves Christian as a foundation initiation. Vaptism was a ritual that was found in Judaism in the New Testament period, designed to serve as the initiation rite for pagan females who wished to convert to Judaism.   Brook W.R. Pearson, "Baptism and Initiation in the Cult of Isis and Sarapis," in "Baptism, the New Testament, and the Church: Historical and Contemporary Studies in Honour of R.E.O White.".

  Finally, the parents may hold the baby up to the sky (hold on tight!) so that the Gods can get a good look at the new child. Ask the group to focus on a blessing for the new child, and to hold onto their intent for a moment, sending their love and positive energy to the a minute to reflect on what it means to be a parent, and how having this child in your life will .   The ceremony of turning to the west three times with renunciation of the Evil One, then to the east, is exactly paralleled in a rite of purification by water common among the Malays and described by Skeat in his book on Malay magic.
