Modern Assyriology: Exploring the Ancient Near East – Understanding the Babylonian Paradigm

Iraqi Freedom

While many folk are familiar with and taught traditional knowledge and lore of the “classic era” of the Romans and Greeks, with occasional ventures into pop-culture mythologies of Egyptians, it seems that little or no attention is given to the source of all this: the Mesopotamian region and the Middle East…

MesopotamianReligionFrontcrop [This mardukite.com blog post is officially excerpted from the essay “Toward a New Babylonian Vision” by Joshua Free, first appearing in 2009 Ruby Edition of Liber L and reappearing as one of the introductory prefaces for the Mardukite Research Organization core sourcebook anthology: Necronomicon – The Anunnaki Bible, now in its sixth edition!]

…But, What is even more counter-productive for the Western world, politics with current world leaders and sects from those regions clouds the ability of the ego to accept anything from them. And what’s more, being that the traditions are pre-Christian in origin and agricultural or “earth-oriented,” they are subject to the same negative stereotypes that contemporary folk associate with any and all things considered “heathen” or “pagan” and really without just-cause.

Babylon2 It is important to understand that the study of this lore and observation of diverse traditions are not restricted to a particular region or culture, they simply seem to originate from a specific source, as did human civilization as a whole. With the spread of the human race followed the spread of the tradition which seemed to take on new forms and colors as it passed from generation to generation across the expanse of the planet.

Life-giving powers and their symbolic representations also appear to have been influenced by time and geography. While the sanctity of the “Sacred Fire” and the flame become apparent in the traditions and systems of the west and north, the people who originated the traditions more closely to the planetary equator more closely identify with the Waters of Life, most closely identified with ENKI (or PTAH in the Egyptian Tradition).

MesopotamianThumb The name Mesopotamia literally means: between or midway of two rivers, referring to the Euphrates and the Tigris, but the sacredness of water does not end here, as we can see that all the originating cultures that we can still identify or connect the source tradition to (non-nomadic) emerged or cultivated around key waterways: the Indus River Valley, the Nile, the Danube (Rhune/Rhine) and
even the Amazon.

The Sumerians called the Euphrates, BUR.AN.UN and it was also known as “Perath” or PU.RA.TU. The 1,800 mile long river begins to rise in late March, just about the time of the Spring Equinox, recognized as the start of the annual Zodiacal Wheel and also the famous A.KI.TI New Year Festival. The Tigris, known as I.DI.IK.LAT and ID.IG.NA (and called the “Serpent River” by some Arab sects) is somewhat shorter at only 1,150 miles and begins to rise at the opposite half of the year, usually coinciding with the Autumn Equinox.

cuneisdgsdg According to historical geologists, the flow of the Euphrates has actually moved westward with age and there is actually more land in Babylonia at present than during ancient times given the shrinking of the Persian Gulf (by 72 feet per year). The fertile alluvial soil in southern Babylonia created a distinct environment by contrast to the northern regions of Mesopotamia. Even the Babylonian region was divided between southern SUMER and northern AKKAD (Agade).

Each of the city-states was originally ruled by its own “Patesi” until eventually the battle for supremacy resulted in a unification of the two lands (as similarly occurred later in Egypt) under a single “King of Sumer and Akkad”, eventually known as the LUGAL or “Great Man”. The esteem of this position also included a mention in the “Book of Kings” [Tablet K] and local government was watched over by priest-kings who adhered to a “Book of the Law” [Tablet L] of which the Code of Hammurabi was largely based on…

Modern Babylonian Mardukites Celebrate 5th Anniversary of 2009 Beltane Anunnaki Stargate of Marduk

NBRheaderSMALLnotuse

Five years ago, the Mardukite Chamberlains, a division of the Mardukite Research Organization, set out to change the world. What they did… became historical… a modern legacy… a modern mythology… A New Babylon sparked by a new tradition born of the most ancient tablet writings — the origins of modern human civilization, beliefs, culture, technology and spirituality…

1001015_318340804969022_2026839541_n Archival information regarding the 2009 Beltane Mardukite Stargate Opening Ceremony appear in the most recent edition of New Babylon Rising: Guardian of The Gates titled: The Gatekeepers Guide to the Mardukite Materials & Chamberlains Chronicles. The following excerpts the article and YouTube video series titled: “How to Open a Stargate on Beltane 2009” written/hosted by Joshua Free.

Most people are aware that the times in which we live are ultimately unique. We are nearing the “End of Days” – although this is not necessarily something cataclysmic and many will not live to see it entirely through anyway. For those who are bound to their material systems and worldly glamour – well, it will indeed be the “end of the world.” For those who have prepared in self-honesty and have learned the true knowledge, then there is no fear. Fear will only undo you. Forget the names you may have read in the grimoires of old – the true demons are Fear, Grief, Loss, Jealousy, Anger, Violence, Lust… indeed, you know of what I speak.

Chroniclesfrontcrop There is a source beyond this Universe, but we are sensually removed from that into this world of Darkness that permeates throughout the Universe and continues to spread. The Mystic Knights are not weaker, we are simply outnumbered and are in a position of seemingly being ever defensive and on-guard in this world. The Darkness does not have to do this. It never questions its own nature – never questions if what it does is “right.” The Darkness simply is.

The powers of “Marduk”/“Merodach” as the ‘Michael Current’ are to be returned to him at this dawn of a brave new world – a New Babylon – a perfection of the zionistic ideal that is already prophetically described in various forms, symbols and systemologies. This process has already begun. In a few short week of writing this lecture, the very first Babylonian AKITI “New Year” Spring Festival will be observed by the Mardukite Chamberlains when the traditional zodiacal observation of the solar sign of Aries (The Sign of Marduk) is observed on the Spring Equinox, March 21. This will be a monumental debut event consecrating the founding of the Mardukite Chamberlains under the Council of Nabu-Tutu.

mardukitemgkthumbb For Beltane (Bel-teine; Fires of Marduk) this year, we will be banding together self-appointed ‘Mardukites’ from all over the world to conduct a synchronized “opening” of the ‘Marduk Gate‘ (from neo-Babylonian mystical operations). In normal workings, this is done alone, discreetly, and is closed at the end of the rite. For Beltane 2009, the Gate will be strongly thrust open by many dedicates and left open to all until the End of Days!

The evening of April 30 (May’s Eve) is potentially the most powerful time for this time of Gate-working from “our” side – existing opposite the famous ‘Samhain’/’Halloween’ threshold. The proverbial ‘key’ to the dimensions opens daily when the “Great Bear” hangs ‘from its tail’, but it appears most significantly at Beltane when it occurs just before the esoteric midnight threshold. This Beltane, on April 30, falls on the Sixth Day of the Moon and the Gate opens at approximately 11:30 PM. According to ‘Simon’/Peter Levenda:

“Pluto continues to rise at 11:30 PM on Beltane this year. Jupiter and Neptune ate conjunct in Aquarius, giving rise to spiritual insights, illumination and energy for ‘Walking on the Stars’…”

So, get this: Gaga/Pluto stands as gate-messenger again; nothing new. But, Jupiter (Marduk) and Neptune (Ia/Ea/Enki) meet up in Aquarius – the sign of the “Lord of the Waters of Life” and the sign of our “New Age” aeon!!! Can you say: ‘family reunion’???

Mardukite Zagmuk — Babylonian Akitu Akiti Spring Equinox New Year Festival

zagmuk

The Babylonian observation of the annual (solar) year starts with the ‘Mardukite’ observation of ‘zagmuk’ – meaning ‘the beginning of the year’ or ‘new year’. This 12-day festival is fixed to arrange its height at the beginning of the month of Nissanu, the ‘Spring Equinox’ or March 21st, also coinciding with the beginning of the astrological wheel, when the sun enters Aries.

BoZceremonialthumb [This mardukite.com blog officially excerpted from Liber Z, available as the full-color ceremonial The Book of Zagmuk edition or within the Mardukite Magick anthology, based on the article first appearing in New Babylon Rising.]

The ZAGMUK festival is significant for its contributions toward solidifying both the religious and political paradigms of Mardukite Babylon. The festival is also known by its Sumerian-derived Akkadian name – A.KI.TI (or A.KI.TU) – meaning ‘On Earth, Life.‘ This large public festival observance is a reconfirmation of the supremacy of MARDUK and the Babylonian Pantheon and is the single most important ancient ‘holiday’ for the tradition.

zagakitu

After the time of gods had come and gone, the priests and kings continued to observe the ceremonial customs using representative statuary to symbolized the ‘divine’ forms of MARDUK and NABU as they make a procession through the streets of Babylon and are placed in the temples to witness a dramatic reenactment of the Enuma Elis and other rites and rituals that commemorate the ‘Mardukite’ tradition (paradigm) and seal the position of the priests and king as the ‘chosen’ ambassadors and intermediaries between the ‘gods’ of heaven and the people of earth.

mardukitemgkthumbb Although the materials have been put forth prior in the Mardukite cycle, this ceremonial edition of The Book of Zagmuk (compiled from these other sources) is provided for the benefit of the modern movement and for posterity – specifically the preservation of this tradition; which is paramount to the continued efforts of the Mardukite Chamberlains (Mardukite Research Organization).

Most scholars recognize only ‘agricultural’ and not necessarily the ‘political’ and ‘mystical’ purpose of the observation, which begins twelve days before crops begin to be planted, apparently the fourth day of the month named Nissanu. Others suggest that the month itself began with the festival, or that the observation was astronomical, matching the exact time the sun enters Aries, which would differ from year to year given precession. Traditional astrology does not take this into account and is plotted based on the ‘snapshot’ taken of the heavens during the Age of Aries.

newbabylonissue3coverthumb Each of the twelve festival days begins at dawn. The ‘high priest’ of the Temple of Marduk – The ESAGILA or ‘House of Marduk‘ – goes and prepares the temple and ceremonial areas prior to dawn, then makes a ‘general invocation’ to Marduk at dawn, before the image of the god in his shrine…

The Book of Zagmuk by Nabu is a specially prepared ceremonial text and selected ‘tablet collections’ that combine materials from the 2011 handbook “Mardukite Wizards of the Wastelands” in conjunction with critical excerpts from Joshua Free’s ‘Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible‘ and essentially comprising the internal methods of the ‘Order of Nabu-Tutu’ to establish Mardukitereligious‘ continuity and the royal legitimacy of MARDUK at the apex of the Babylonian Pantheon using the Babylonian New Year Festival, Akitu (Akiti) or Zagmuk, reviving the same process used by ancient priests of the Sumerian Anunnaki in Mesopotamia!
