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.

MARDUKITE NECRONOMICON — “Real” ANUNNAKI BIBLE is Origins of Everything! Even Judeo-Christian Scriptures!

Many have long wondered the truth—and it is available to us as clear today as it was thousands and thousands of years ago—impressed on ancient clay tablets… the first true writings at the inception of modern human civilization—some of which extend back to the time of the first societies, the first cities, the first systems, the first…well… everything. And while humanity has had a turbulent history ever since, what has suffered the most in all of this time is precisely the retention, understanding and basic ability to know the truth about the origins of everything. How things came to be what they are today is not as important as a return to the source and rediscovery of the original knowledge—the truth as it was laid out before the convolution of further systems and cultural fragmentation.

Where does one turn for answers?
And are there answers for us?

Sometimes the desire to “know” is not tempered with wisdom and discernment. We have all seen the types that have allowed the pursuit of esoteric knowledge to drive them “crazy”—so vastly interrupting and impeding any sense of “normalcy” that they either fall by the wayside or worse, become forever lost to a personal roller-coaster ride—closed tracked and cyclic, providing perpetual stimulation and the illusion of movement… but what true enlightenment? Where is the ascension if the movement is not perpetually upward—unfolding laden potentials that are not restricted to just what we can conceive of today. We begin to allow ourselves the freedom to achieve these states of higher awareness by acquiring and maintaining “true knowledge” as we process our experience of reality and what is possible.

Fortunately, for the past decade, a group called the “Mardukite Chamberlains” (or “Mardukite Research Organization”) has refined a collection of the most ancient writings on the planet, presented as an amazing source book of renderings drawn from ancient Mesopotamia—the land of Sumerians, Akkadians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Chaldeans—and its treasure trove of clay cuneiform tablets, completely translated, beautifully presented and accessible for all to see! What’s more, this amazing book—NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE edited by Joshua Free—has been carefully arranged and developed by those who actually take these matters seriously, not simply an academic interest or scholarly career. The etheric, astral and intellectual gateways that these materials unlock is far beyond what the written word can even express, and must instead be experienced first hand. Will you join us in knowing?

The Most Ancient Sacred Library… at your fingertips! Once Reserved for the Elite: Secrets of Cosmology-Science-Mysticism… Revealed!

Contemporary understanding of ancient civilizations is botched — pure and simple. Where much is uncovered even today, consistently shifting our opinions and timelines stretching around the globe, it cannot be dismissed that in spite of the myriad of findings and symbols among scattered remains, it is the cuneiform tablet libraries of ancient Mesopotamia (what is now Iraq; formerly Sumer and Babylon) that truly give us the first true writing systems. And although we like to call them “books” today, no such objects existed at that time — instead, an entire tradition of preserving knowledge and scientific mysteries emerged in the form of clay tablets, written in a script-style known as cuneiform (and named for its ‘wedge-shaped’ marks).

NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE (10th Anniversary Seventh Edition)

Prolific author and prodigious mystic and philosopher, JOSHUA FREE, has been actively involved in the underground and so-called “New Age” movement for nearly 25 YEARS, first known as “Merlyn Stone” in the mind-1990’s. His personal occult notebooks as a teenager, such as the “Draconomicon” and especially his “Sorcerer’s Handbook” (with more than 2000 copies in circulation before he was 18 years old), have influenced the development of modern practitioners and their traditions for two decades! Pivotal more-intermediate editions such as “Book of Elven-Faerie” and especially the release of “Arcanum: Great Magical Arcanum” literally launched the modern Mardukite movement more than 10 years ago! But where the subject of the Mardukite resurgence is concerned, the most inseparable of all works by Joshua Free is a literary collection known today as the NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE.

“So, in the ancient Realm we peer into, we find not books, but clay tablets; no bibles, but specialized tablet collections — sometimes kept in wooden or gilded boxes, for the elite class of Mesopotamia were all literate. And “temples” of priest-scribes preserved the most ancient knowledge of cosmology, science and etheric spirituality on clay tablets in cuneiform scripts, some more than 5000 years old today. And these were no obscure symbolic primitive picture-glyphs, but explicitly detailed renderings — albeit quite mystifying to the common-folk of the general population who could not read, who could not decipher the mysteries themselves to the degree of that intellectual dimension. Maintaining an Order to the ancient commonwealth, ceremony, traditions and other culture emerged from this lore, but on a public exoteric level designed primarily for the masses with little direct access or discernment of the cuneiform tablets themselves. Such was, as it always has been, kept closely guarded under the highest or most secret echelons of the Realm, who maintained their own lineage of societies within, albeit also separate and apart from, the surface world. Such is what provides us with the substance to work through this work today under its present guise…[the Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible]” — explains Joshua Free, from a recent “Knowledge Lecture” at the Mardukite Babylon Ancient Astronomy Research Office.

NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE edited by Joshua Free, is now celebrating its release of a 10th Anniversary Seventh Edition, the most complete, economical and accessible printing of the original ‘Mardukite Core’ anthology in a decade, just in time for a (NexGen) new generation of Truth Seekers. Of course, it is essential reading for any Mardukite, but even beyond this specific semantic paradigm, it is a must-read for anyone considering themselves a “Truth Seeker.” It is intriguing and refreshing to see this forgotten lore so painstakingly researched from a perspective that is both anthropological and historical, not to mention mystical and spiritually nourishing.

JOSHUA FREE

As a Mardukite Alumni once commented about the work, “Resulting from a [then] fifteen-year journey into the source of ‘New Age’ metaphysical mysteries of the underground, JOSHUA FREE had fallen upon what appeared to be a pure current-stream back to the sources of the most ancient and coveted Babylonian tradition…”

The “Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible” edited by Joshua Free is quite simply a masterpiece of Mesopotamian magic, spirituality and history, providing a complete collection – a grand symphony of correlated materials – of the most ancient writings on the planet.

NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE 10th Anniversary Limited Edition

The oldest of these Sumerian and Babylonian cuneiform tablet records reveal detailed accounts of cosmic history in the universe and on earth, the development of human history and descriptions of world order – all of which were used to maintain spiritual and physical control of humanity – providing to be the predecessor and foundation of global scripture-based religious and mystical traditions thereafter. These raw underground materials have shaped the existence of man’s beliefs and traditions for thousands of years; right from the heart of the Ancient Near East: Sumer, Babylon and even Egypt!

Real Ancient Magic Rites & Rituals – Incantation of Eridu, The Deep of Enki | Sumerian Babylonian Mesopotamian

Through Marduk, the power of Eridu – incantation-prayer – was taught to the scribes of Nabu and the Mardukite Priests, who were taught to attract and compel the ‘gods’ in the name of Marduk, always incanting the word-formula of the highest order: Nabu invoked by way of the name of Marduk; Marduk invoked by way of the name of Enki, Our Father, who in turn would invoke by the name of Anu – and so was born the concept of magical hierarchies, an ideal that was convoluted and obscured when employed later (during the Middle Ages and such), particularly distorted by the Judeo-Christian paradigm as evident in many popular grimoires
–The Book of Marduk by Nabu

Many version of Erudite magic may be found through the Mesopotamian ‘spiritual’ (or ‘magical’) cuneiform texts. The incantation tablets from the ‘Mardukite’ Babylonian Anunnaki tradition, specifically those used and forged by scribe-priests of the Order of Nabu, are invoked from the ‘perspective’ (authority) of NABU – as was the tradition learned verbatim from MARDUK. In both scholarly and esoteric ‘Mardukite’ texts, the ‘Opening Ritual’ of Mardukite magic is derived from the source titled: “The Incantation of Eridu.”

JOSHUA FREE explains this magic in the Liber-50 material released as SUMERIAN RELIGION by Joshua Free, also available in the Year-2 Mardukite Core Anthology GATES OF THE NECRONOMICON edited by Joshua Free.

Perhaps the most fundamental ‘formula’ of the magical system in Babylonia, if there is one, goes back to the heart of the system born of the scribe-priests and the figures who brought this system about – NABU and the appropriation of his father, MARDUK as the chief director. This is the spiritual acknowledgment alluded to by the Incantation of Eridu, also known as the ‘Incantation of the Priest of Eridu’ (Eridu being the shrine-home of ENKI), or the ‘Incantation of the Deep’, which simply refers to another name for the far-away abode of ENKI near the Persian Gulf.

Ceremonial activation of the ‘birthright’ of Anunnaki power sealed in Eridu (and then in Babylon) allows a practitioner to assume the representative form of the “ Priest of Eridu,” a title first bestowed upon MARDUK by ENKI, then passed onto NABU during the solidification and heights of the Babylonian era. The esoteric key in effect here is that the priest conducts the incantations (ceremony) as the embodiment of an intermediary ‘messenger’ deity – the original semantic of the word “invocation” – thereby directing the cosmic (world) order, in essence, first hand.

The magician approaches his deity as himself – a servant priest – and petitions to assume the godform, whereby he continues the ceremony as a divine representation of the god ‘invoked’. An almost identical principle appears within Semitic mysticism and the Judeo-Kabbalah – an excellent example being found in contemporary Catholicism, when the priest ‘assumes the Christ-form’ to effectively perform a perceived alchemical transmutation on the sacramental bread and wine, conducted as a representative of Jesus on earth, in imitation (dramatic reenactment) of the Last Supper.

In the ‘Mardukite’ system observed in Babylon, the god being invoked is MARDUK. This is affirmed with the priest’s first utterance of: “It is not I, but Marduk, who speaks the incantation.” And from then on the system is sealed and readied for use by the Mardukite devotee. Consider the lines in this conjuration, adapted from the Mardukite Tablet-Y in NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE edited by Joshua Free:

It is not I, but Marduk, Slayer of Serpents,
Who summons thee.
It is not I, but Enki, Father of the Magicians,
Who calls thee here now.

An examination of the remaining lines of the ‘Incatation of Eridu’ appears here, though the “Mardukite” version is given fully in the Tablet-Y Series. As described, the ritual operates as if from the perspective of NABU (speaking for MARDUK). Though variations exist across the opening lines of several Assyrian “exorcisms,” one key tablet example – translated by R.C. Thompson as his “Tablet N” for Devils and Evil Spirits of Babylonia (1903) – relates:

The Priest of E.A. [Enki] am I.
The priest of Damkina [Ninki] am I.
The messenger [Nabu] of Marduk am I.
My spell is the spell of E.A [Enki].
My incantation is the incantation of Marduk.
The ‘magic circle’ of EA [Enki] is in my hand.
The tamarask (of Anu), in my hand, I hold.

From the modernized Mardukite version, the opening lines read (from Tablet-Y in Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible):

I am the Priest of Marduk,
Son of Our Father, Enki.
I am the Priest of Eridu,
And the Magician of Babylon

The Assyrian version continues humbly as follows:

EA [Enki], King of the Deep
See me favorably.
I, the magician, am thy slave.
March thou on my right hand,
Assist me on my left;
Add thy pure spell to mine.
Add thy pure voice to mine.
O god that blesses me, Marduk,
Let me be blessed, wherever my path rests.
Thy power, shall god and man proclaim.
And I too, the magician, thy slave

E.A. Budge transliterates an older version for Babylonian Life & History (1883) and we see a slightly different method for petitioning the “younger pantheon” to the side of the priest:

I am the Priest of EA [Enki].
I am the Magician of Eridu.
Shammash [Samas] is before me.
Sin [Nanna] is behind me.
Nergal is at my right hand.
Ninurta is at my left hand

Later added to this, the modern Mardukite version appends:

Anu, above me, King of Heaven.
Enki, below me, King of the Deep.
The power [blood] of Marduk is within me.
It is not I, but Marduk, who performs the incantation.
