Udjat This symbol is named after the 'sound' Eye of the Egyptian god Horus.  According to legend, Horus lost his eye while battling Set, which then fell to pieces.  It was found by Thoth who put it together again.  It is now a universal symbol representing higher knowledge, inner vision and insight into occult mysteries.  The Udjat was regarded as a powerful protective amulet, and is frequently found in tombs, on coffins and on the seal which was placed over an incision in a mummy through which the internal organs were removed.
Umbanda A religion based on the worship of Angolan spirits, taken to Brazil by African slaves during the colonial period from the Bantu tribes of Congo, Umbanda now incorporates other elements drawn from Brazilian popular culture.  Orixs (Gods), from the Yorb culture, are given token rule over the various legions of spirits, and associated with a Catholic saint under whose guidance the spirits work.
Undines In Alchemical tradition, these are the elemental spirits of Water.
