Festival of Ma’at and Dike (20 Athyr)
Ways to honor: Uphold Ma’at, which means truth, justice, right order, cosmic harmony, and pious interactions with the gods. Behaviors not in accordance with this philosophical and religious ideal should be vehemently shunned as Isfet. Meaning, do nothing you know to be offensive to the gods. Avoid actively harming others or yourself. Do not disrupt the order of the community unless that order is based on harmful principles. Make your words truthful: do not speak something you know to be false, and when you have given your word that you will do something do all in your power to make sure that it comes to pass. Do not be content in offering anything that is short of your best. Always hold true to your highest ideals.
