Sumerian Rituals, Babylonian Magic and the Rise of Modern Mesopotamian Neopaganism

“Here [in Babylon] is real death. Not a column or arch still stands to demonstrate the permanency of human work. Everything has crumbled to dust. The very temple tower, the most imposing of all these ancient constructions, has entirely lost its shape. Where are now its seven stages? We see nothing but a mound of earth – all that remains of the millions of its bricks. Here the ancient mysteries and their tombs have been sleeping quietly for millenniums. In a few months, perhaps in a few days, the ground will be broken by trenches as in a battlefield. And the repose of the poor dead will be disturbed by the frantic search for records and data…”
~ Edward Chiera, “They Wrote On Clay”
From a letter to his wife

Before Babylon—when history had not yet been written—the land now known to modern man as the “Middle East” was first occupied by “gods” of antiquity—the Anunnaki. These super-human figures molded and shaped human consciousness and the systematized civilization we so easily take for granted in the “Western World” today. The wheel of time forced the age of “gods” to become an era of “men” and their ways, but the ancient foundations built in Mesopotamia remain strong among us today.

Don’t miss the 10th Anniversary reissue of the amazing modern esoteric library of Mesopotamian Neopaganism developed by the “Mardukite Research Organization” now rewritten, revised and updated in the newly restored alternative-paperback edition of the MARDUKITE CORE.

Classical period Greeks may be credited with the term: Mesopotamia—meaning “A land between two rivers.” More literal than poetic, the title accurately describes the region known to the ancients as Babylonia—the “Land of the Gates of the Gods” and the “City of Star-Gates” established primarily between two rivers—the Tigris and the Euphrates. Today, the term Babylonia is used to distinguish post-Sumerian empires maintained by Babylonian kings, a lineage made famous by Hammurabi, the powerful “Mardukite” systematizer of Babylon.

Commonly compared to the fertile Nile region of Egypt, Mesopotamia is also a river-delta system—and, like the Nile to the Egyptians, this system of life-giving waters proved to be inseparable from prosperity of the people. The plain was cultivated successfully by use of the first “aqueduct-irrigation” systems. Accurate construction and upkeep of these canals were vital to keep Babylonia habitable in all seasons.

Mystics of every age go forth explaining an almost quantum vision of reality and existence: entangled, interconnected—All-as-One. While this might seem a truly obscure approach to crossing the current threshold of what is typically deemed an “academic” topic; it is not. Consider for a moment that our mythic past is very much rooted in truth—albeit misunderstood but a truth that has been conveniently, or forcefully, forgotten among mass awareness.

Politics and the general human condition evolving outside of the Ancient Mystery School have, throughout history, taken its toll on accounts of said truth, as becomes quite evident concerning the history of the geographic region known as Mesopotamia. Humans, accepting a mortal paradigm, are unaware of one critical aspect of the cosmos—one that they can not see based on limited perceptions and reality experiences schematized by semantic labeling—that Universal Truth is actually unchanging. Some have even put forth to call it “Cosmic Law.”

In spite of the best (or worst) human efforts across time, the Truth has survived to remind us of our origins, to instruct us on where we have to go and perhaps, most importantly, the standards we should live by to get there. Mere survival of Secret Doctrines by select cabals is not enough. For as the world was once plummeted into Dark Ages only to be reincarnated in an Age of Enlightenment, the “esoteric” truth did not resurface in public “exoteric” consciousness—in fact, it went the other direction: underground and into vaults of obscure “occult” factions.

SHINING PATHS : Mesopotamian Neopaganism, “Mardukite-Babylonian” modern alternative to “Enlilite-Zuism”

In a world of scandals, travesties and abuses of every nature known to humanity, it seems like there are few true Shining Paths left for those who seek something real in an otherwise virtual world… First conceived of by Joshua Free in the 1990’s to satisfy a personal quest, the modern MARDUKITE brand of ‘kNowing’ emerged officially on the 2008 Summer Solstice, quickly exceeding any expectations of public reception–and this was a time before widely broadcasted shows like “Ancient Aliens” made the ‘Anunnaki’ a household term or even the inception of Icelandic Zuism.

Spanning more than ten years, the combined academic and esoteric efforts demonstrated by the modern ‘Mardukite Research Organization’ have gone forth to inspire thousands of people all over the planet in both practical scholarly ways and in the promotion of the greater spiritual evolution of those on the path. Although not intended originally as a “religious institution,” the systemology unearthed from Babylon reveals the origins of all worldly religions, and is in itself, often considered the “oldest religion” on the planet. But the wide-angle scope of the ‘Mardukite’ work is fixed beyond mere worldly religious ideals… it is grounded in the very TRUTH that humanity has lost sense of, and of which only remains hidden and protected by those who carry the torch in self-honesty.

Commemorating the 10th Anniversary of the modern MARDUKITE inception, the ‘Mardukite Truth Seeker Press’, in conjunction with the ‘Joshua Free Publishing Imprint’, has arranged for the reissue of newly revised, rewritten and updated editions of the ‘Mardukite Core’–a specialized library of literary materials. These include the original
‘Year-1’ source book titled: NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE (Mardukite Liber-N,L,G,9,M,W+S) already available as a 10th Anniversary hardcover collector’s edition, with a subsequent paperback version titled: THE COMPLETE ANUNNAKI BIBLE: A SOURCE BOOK OF ESOTERIC ARCHAEOLOGY (edited by Joshua Free) scheduled for global release on March 21, 2019–the Akiti/Akitu Babylonian New Year Festival!

Following on the heels of the esoteric tablet collection contained within the primary source book, the ‘Mardukite Chamberlains’ released a cycle of Year-2 research materials expertly supplementing both mystical and archaeological aspects of the work simultaneously. Joshua Free’s GATES OF THE NECRONOMICON: THE SECRET ANUNNAKI TRADITION OF BABYLON (Mardukite Liber-50,51/52,R+555) premieres on February 28, 2019 as its 10th anniversary hardcover collector’s edition, with a subsequent paperback featuring the Mardukite Liber-50+51/52 portions specific to ancient studies in Mesopotamia concerning Sumerians, Babylonians and the Anunnaki, also scheduled for release on February 28, 2019 as THE SUMERIAN LEGACY: A GUIDE TO ESOTERIC ARCHAEOLOGY by Joshua Free.

Reviving the Secret Anunnaki Tradition of Babylon : ‘Mardukite Core’ 10th Anniversary “Gates of the Necronomicon”

“The first religious, spiritual and occult systems — those appearing in their original form as the mystical traditions of Mesopotamia — were rooted in a sacred relationship established between humans and gods. All of the original spiritual traditions, or “magic”, on the planet — the basis for everything manifesting after the fact — was rooted simply in ‘service’ to the gods. Specific priests and priest-kings were selected by ancient ‘laws’ set down by the Anunnaki, and their function was to serve as an intermediary, to stand between the general human population of ‘earth’ and the sky gods of ‘heaven’.” —JOSHUA FREE

[This mardukite blog post quotes Joshua Free from a live workshop regarding the ‘Mardukite Core’ given on November 15, 2009 while visiting the Pacific Northwest, networking in the underground occult community for the original release of the Year-1 ‘Mardukite Core’ as NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE, when the Year-2 GATES OF THE NECRONOMICON materials were about to be first developed.]

“It was only during the later evolution of these system-based traditions over thousands of years that resulted in the more ‘kabbalistic’ approaches available to modern seekers today — and this myriad of possible forms is so wrapped up in numerous progressive attempts drawn from human consciousness (and the perspective of the ‘observer’) that one could spend literally multiple human lifetimes in their unraveling — because the cumulative ‘systems’ have simply grown that big, by necessity of course; we just can’t have ‘free spirits’ coming in and out of reality all the time! We just can’t have it. This all being said — the initial effort made in reconstructing a spiritual tradition toward the original Sumerian Anunnaki is first and foremost to ‘establish and maintain a self-honest relationship’ with the Anunnaki. In terms of the Mardukite effort, we have retained the original semantics used by the Sumerians who first encountered these beings: ANUNNAKI.”

“The word ANUNNAKI is Sumerian — or Akkadian — in origin and means in one sense literally “heaven came to earth” and is interpreted by Zecharia Sitchin as “those who came down from heaven to earth” or else sky gods. In the past it has also been translated by scholars to mean “those who decree (cut) the fates,” or else “divine judges.” There are actually references to ‘Seven Judges’ on several ancient cuneiform incantation tablets. But these tablets also indicate that the Anunnaki seeded not only the ‘genetics’ of early modern humans but also the infrastructure — societal systems of human civilization — an evolution of the same systems and an extension of the same civilization that humans experience today! For many, the journey will end right there — for the way ahead in all of this appears too difficult or obscure…the esoteric and occult is called what it is for a reason, and will always be understood by the few, outside and apart from public (mass) opinion and scrutiny. For there is much simply not worth taking time to debate. There are many people who will simply not choose to know — comfortable as they are with the worldview they have already found.”

The emphasis of the “Year-1” Mardukite Chamberlains work — or ‘Mardukite Core’ — compiled in its entirety for NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE is specifically what could be considered “Mardukite” from an Egypto-Babylonian perspective. The works reviewed are the most famous and influential to come form NABU’s (Son of MARDUK) ‘Order of Priest-Scribes’ in ancient post-Sumerian Babylon — where cuneiform clay tablets were forged to show the Anunnaki deity MARDUK as supreme. In regards to the Anunnaki pantheon, a “Sumerian” background [relayed in Year-2 work, such as Liber-50, contained in GATES OF THE NECRONOMICON or THE SUMERIAN LEGACY by Joshua Free] will almost undermine ‘legitimacy’ concerning newer Babylonian hierarchies of the Anunnaki — a “Sumerian Secret” concealed in the Babylonian renderings emphasized in the “Year-1” reflection of a pure “Babylon-through-Babylonian-eyes.”

A Guide to the Modern Revival of Ancient Mesopotamian Religion | New Babylon

Commemorating the 10th Anniversary of the modern “Mardukite” inception, Director of the “Mardukite Research Organization”Joshua Free—is taking great strides to reintroduce a new generation of “NexGen” Truth Seekers to the revolutionary New Thought developments released by the “Mardukite Truth Seeker Press” to encourage a modern revival of ancient Mesopotamian religion—using the specific underground tradition of the “Mardukite” Babylonians as a base… such has never been done before on the planet for thousands of years!

Central to efforts for reviving the ancient Mesopotamian traditions and Mardukite Babylonian (including Chaldean and Assyrian) systems of esoteric magic, astronomy and philosophy—the inception of this modern “Mardukite” mystical, spiritual and archaeological revival first emphasizes exploration of the Mesopotamian Mysteries as collected within the once underground source book, developed by the “Mardukite Chamberlains” during their first active year and now revised, re-edited and revisited for a 10th Anniversary Collector’s Edition Hardcover as: NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE edited by Joshua Free.

Joshua Free explains on a recent episode of ‘Mardukite TV’, rebooted on YouTube for the Mardukite 10th Anniversary—

“Although the greater body of our [Mardukite] work is more encompassing and universal than strictly ‘Ancient Near East’ studies, one of the core fundamental topics of esoteric history and tradition that we do focus on is the ‘Source’—the oldest systematized aspects of modern human development—the origins of writing itself; the ability to record history; also the inception of many worldly systems, beliefs, programming and civic aspects, all of which bring us back to the heart of Mesopotamia and the cuneiform tablet records of the Nabu priest-scribes of Babylon. These ‘magicians’ literally used a newly refined language and the ability to record written communication to actually shape human consciousness and beliefs… These systems have continued to remain in the control of higher orders of citizens, business and other authority…”

NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE is a collected works anthology comprised of seven discourses originally released separately to the underground in 2009 (and 2010). It is an unparalleled unequaled modern collection of the most ancient writings on the planet—brought together with the explicit purpose of being used, as relevant today as the day the cuneiform clay tablets were first formed. The book has been prepared for the “every man,” without the need for previous experience or esoteric education—although someone with some will undoubtedly find that it advances their prior gleanings greatly. Those supporters who have taken a step back to see the wide-angle “big picture” source knowledge that this provides and how relevant it is to global history, traditions and civic evolution have found that this paradigm or methodology is superior to all alternatives available to us today.

Many people are familiar with—or are traditionally taught—a limited view of human history, mostly restricted to a classical period of Greeks and Romans, and maybe even a little nod in the direction of the Egyptians. There is little or no attention given to the “less-accessible” and “less understood” sources of these later developments in human civilization—sources that extend back to Mesopotamia, the Anunnaki and the Mardukite Babylonians. Personal feelings and misrepresented politics regarding areas now known as the “Middle East” really do not help matters. Not to mention that current populations in these areas do not observe these ancient traditions either. So, there really was no representation for this path in the “New Age” or any decent source material for an authentic resurgent revival before the Year-1 2009 work of the modern “Mardukite Chamberlains” that is culminated as NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE edited by Joshua Free.

Accept no imitations or substitutions… This is the book you want to get you on your way!

FORBIDDEN ARCHAEOLOGY — Mardukite 10th Anniversary Reboot featuring “Necronomicon: The Anunnaki Bible”

Commemorating the 10th Anniversary of the modern “Mardukite” New Thought movement, the Director of “Mardukite Research & Development”Joshua Free—returns to “Mardukite TV” on YouTube for a 10th Anniversary “Reboot” series is dedicated to reintroducing the world to the NexGen work of the “Mardukite Chamberlains” and especially the primary source book of the movement, developed underground over the past decade as— NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE —available as a 10th Anniversary Hardcover Collector’s Edition on October 30, 2018.

NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE
10th Anniversary Collector’s Edition Hardcover

edited by Joshua Free

Revised and updated complete anthology!
Liber-N,L,G,9+M,W+S
Materials from 7-Books-in-One!
ISBN : 978-0-692-19010-4
Cloth Hardcover with Dustjacket

NECRONOMICON : THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE is a revolutionary contribution toward true “New Age” advancement in authentic historical, mystical and esoteric research. It draws from a unique and unparalleled modern effort combining archaeological findings with the esoteric (“mystical” and “magical”) traditions—forming the backbone of what Truth Seekers are looking for! This book specifically concerns hard to find information about the Sumerians, Babylonians, Akkadians, Assyrians, Chaldeans, Egyptians… even including the Yezidic Traditions and Zoroastrianism.

Until the inception of the modern “Mardukite” movement, this information remained in the backwaters of human consciousness—even in the “New Age movement”—because they have not been as accessible as European traditions and other more popular and classical customs and revivals that are more widely accessible today—including even the Egyptians and the Hermetic Mysteries from the Classical Age. NECRONOMICON : THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE revives the heart and soul of humanity directly from the cradle of civilization as a complete cuneiform tablet collection anthology, translated and beautifully presented in its raw and undefiled state.

What sets the modern “Mardukite” organization and movement apart from a lot of others—and also the subject of some controversy—is the fact that it is a balanced combination of the “esoteric” and the “academic” or archaeological. As a New Thought Movement, the modern “Mardukite” methodology is not passive—it is an active movement—balanced coherently in the logic of philosophies and science. For a decade, the organization has operated underground as a collective of NexGen “Truth Seekers” essentially seeking the well-springs of hidden information, historical records, research of cuneiform tablets—which includes “esoteric” (“spiritual” and “mystical”) experimentation. This method of development, under the direction of Joshua Free, has led to the highly effective growth of this paradigm around the world.

NECRONOMICON : THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE reveals the “Ancient Mystery Tradition” as it first appears, when civilization is developing in Mesopotamia. This became the groundwork for later derived “Hermetic Traditions” and the “Underworld Mysteries” and legacy of “Books of the Dead,” not to mention the influences directly on Semitic lore and development of Judeo-Christian tradition, including the “Book of Genesis” and “Book of Enoch” and the entirety of the Kabbalah!

SUMERIANS, BABYLONIANS & ANUNNAKI GODS OF ANCIENT MESOPOTAMIAN RELIGION

Secrets of the Anunnaki & The Origins of Babylon

RETURN TO THE SOURCE — to traditions and spirito-mystical systems of the Middle East, those born from ancient Sumerians and afterward extended to interpretation by Chaldeo-Babylonians, Akkadians, Assyrians and even Egyptians. The spread of this tradition across Europe led to even more fanciful and colorful realizations of the primary Olympian mythology first realized in ancient Mesopotamia!

Discover the secrets for yourself in SUMERIAN RELIGION by Joshua Free — The most critically acclaimed and bestselling materials from the Mardukite Research Organization now available in one volume! A master compilation of mythological and religious exploration into the heart of ancient Mesopotamian Mysteries, this easy-to-read post-modern anthology illuminates the ancient world using revolutionary teachings and source materials in a way never before seen… for thousands of years!

The nature, identity and relationship of ancient Mesopotamian Anunnaki “gods” – those of the Sumerians and Babylonians – is very important, not only for understanding the literally ‘Mardukite’ work, but also for possessing a greater ‘wideangle’ vision of life, reality and existence – not to mention understanding your own place and legacy within it.

All of the original and later work of the ‘Mardukites’, all of these other authors and producers and their theories and explanations of things past, present and even future – they are all dependent on a clear and concise basis of understanding and comprehension of the very root element that it all surrounds – the very beings that made all of this history and human development possible. For without this key knowledge, and an objective one-to-one correlation of this knowledge with reality, all of the other research, reading and even the experience of life and reality will be undertaken ‘out of context’ of what is Truth.

The meaning and innate desire to pursue truth, particularly what has been known as the Secret of the Ages, is no less obvious in the realm of science and academia then it is in the world of the occultist. Those who have been dubbed ‘occultists’ or ‘esotericists’ are not the only ones interested in SUMERIAN RELIGION, nor are they even the original ones. Only the methodologies and intentions differ. And yet again – all is connected.

The recovery of the truth of mankind’s past is paramount to the fate of humanity’s future. Thus, it should could by no surprise that the geographic terrain of its origins has been the victim of unyielding war and suffering for thousands of years – further enshrouding those unveiling efforts with a measure of hesitation and doubt painted by political opinions of the modern Middle East, and for our purposes, what the academicians have called the Ancient Near East. Relative power within the modern world and human society is a ‘fleeting glamour’ and wholly representative; yet, if anything on the planet can be said to represent ineffable true worldly power by the ‘sword’ and ‘shield’ of truth, it is from those objects of ancient knowledge that come to us from this place.

SUMERIAN RELIGION by Joshua Free : Arriving on the surface world from the underground – an amazing insight into the Anunnaki ‘alien gods’ and the establishment of human civilization famously accounted by the Sumerian and Babylonian traditions. Prolific writer, Joshua Free, presents this topic such as the modern world has never before had access to, developed from the revolutionary work conducted by the next generation of Seekers actively using a revival Anunnaki tradition in the present day. SUMERIAN RELIGION is not merely the presentation of dry academic renderings of obscure tablets; this book will take you on a progressive journey that is just as relevant and critical today as it was thousands of years ago! Uncover the mysteries that lay hidden in ancient Sumer, with a message so relevant today, it is no wonder it became the greatest kept secret of Babylon!
