BABYLONIAN MAGIC – Ancient Art of Priests, Kings & Magicians Revealed! by Joshua Free

“Systematic traditions, ‘hermetically sealed’ within themselves, rose from the Semitic grimoire-styled ceremonial magic, not surprisingly influenced by ‘Egypto-Babylonian’ forms of ritual magic (first the domain of Enki but later passed into the possession of Marduk and his scribe-son Nabu). The priest-magicians of Babylon would not actually have personally used a grimoire-like magic themselves, as this was not their way. At best, they would invoke the powers of the Anunnaki with incantations in the name of Marduk – but this manner of using the ‘secret names’ as properties of Marduk, or any other demigod, was a much more recent addition to the system…” –Joshua Free

During the era of the first ziggurat temples – the Anunnaki age – all of the magic constituted the ‘spiritual assistance’ that was governed by the state, ruled by priest-kings and temple attendants. The ‘mystics’ of Babylonia were all employed by the temples and scribe-houses, though there were undoubtedly those who confined themselves to their arts in the outlands, beyond the awareness of the societal realm.

The peasant class, however, did not practice much by way of ‘magic’ (as classified by anthropologists) outside of their own personal religious devotions, which in itself was mostly restricted to hymns and prayers learned from the temples. These personal devotions were also completely inclination-based, as there does not appear to be any prescribed devotional method or temple attendance required of a Babylonian citizen, nor even participation in national festivals.

Access to the ‘incantation-prayers’ of the priests were also not generally given to just anyone – and you had to be able to read them, or at the very least memorize them. General collections of these tablets were seldom kept, with the exception of priest-kings who might house their own personal libraries. An example: the Kuyunjik collection, called nis-kati (preserved in the British Museum) which was the private property of the Assyrian king Ashurbanipal.

The Altar of Offering set before the ‘Boat of the Gods’ (imagery also appearing in the Egyptian Tradition – a ‘Boat of the Gods’ carrying seven figures – e.g. the Seven Anunnaki Gods of the Babylonian ‘Younger Generation’) was also located at the official shrines – although personal altars could surely be constructed by a devotee appealing to their god, this would come much later during an era of ‘figurative mysticism’ because originally, these offerings would be physically received by a god in person, or via their ‘priestly secretaries’.

Common religious offerings included food and drink, incense and oil, even lavish jewelry and clothing – which were carried up the ziggurat steps of the ‘ladder to heaven’ to be placed before the feet of the god, or at the very least, at his ‘boat’ to be lifted to them.

When the appearance of the gods, themselves, was not present, it was customary to have an official piece of statuary left in there place. This became more and more figurative with the passage of time, and it is easy to see how many of these originating concepts evolved into later magical and religious practices – which were one and the same at their start.

Gold and lapis lazuli commonly appear as both ‘magical ritual aids’ and prestigious offerings to the ‘gods’ via their temples. Wands, necklaces and bags of loose lapis are often mentioned in esoteric texts (cuneiform tablets) from the Mesopotamians, in addition to golden rings and ‘amulet-plates’ marked with specific seals and cuneiform glyphs. Practical “underground” investigations into this type of work later developed into a modern standard used by the Mardukites who practice a contemporary Babylonian tradition, making use of illustrated sigil-seals and cuneiform signatures of the seven of the “Younger Generation” (as well as the Supernal Trilogy) – making ten sets in total. (See also the Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible and/or Book of Marduk by Nabu.)

Implementation of a practical magical system from the Babylonian ideal is somewhat different than what the contemporary mind, even an ‘esoteric’ one, is fundamentally familiar with. As opposed to the later magicians who appear to have had to connive and fool the hierarchies of spirits into assisting them, threatening them and even in fear of some retroactive revenge – the original magical system used by the priests of Babylonia was rooted in the deep personal relationship – running as deep as blood – that the Sumerian priest-kings and Mardukite NABU priest-scribes maintained with the sources of not only their religious power, but the basis of the entire system of civilization that allowed the progression of the human species into today.

All of this, according to tradition, resided in the influence of the Anunnaki gods – and the priest-kings and scribes were installed to be sure no one forgot this…

GreatBearinthSky

Since the dawn of modern human history in Babylon & Egypt, magical tradition appeared as innate and indigenous forms of cultural and religious expression to give “order” to the human psyche…

Was ancient mysticism, esoteric wisdom and dramatic magical operations intended to be taken “literally” once committed to written records?

Are they actually indicators of something else beneath the surface of the way they have been understood for centuries? …even millenniums?


CYBERNOMICON_cover-preview “We are here to become great men and women, and with that purpose in view, we must eliminate everything in our religion and philosophy that tends to make the human mind a dependent weakling. If you would serve God and be truly religious, do not kneel before God, but learn to walk with God, and do something tangible every day to increase the happiness of mankind. This is religion that is worth while, and it is such religion alone that can please the Infinite.”
–Christian D. Larson

CYBERNOMICON in Hardcover and Paperback!

The Ancient Mystery School from which all occult lodges are founded is Necromancy. Deep rooted magical organizations all demonstrate active participation with “The Other,” bridging a communication between what is Visible and Invisible. Inner Circles maintain Dead Names and Knowledge from the Past. These are the Teachings of the Ages, Secret Wisdom of the Past… and a recovery of what is Dead.

keep-calm-and-be-a-cyber-5 Humans have been trying to crack the code on “Death” since the invention of religion. In Egypt, especially, the funerary process was central to the whole tradition-meaning the relationship (and promise) made between the “sky gods” and the people of Earth. Most of the oldest cuneiform writings in Mesopotamia are either an effort to preserve posthumous legacies of gods and kings, or investigations into the landscape of the Underworld and nature of the Abyss.

Sacred knowledge from ancient civilizations, including their technology, is understood only by looking beyond the contemporary knowledge we are educated with. Society claims to prize “individuality” and “innovation” yet requires its citizens to fall in step to learn and repeat — copy and paste — the same methodology held by previous generations. Mystics and Magicians demonstrate an upper hand in life by manifesting their will and finding themselves in synchronistic circumstances that seem magical. Understanding energy fields, their interactions and its affect on perceived reality is what makes this possible.

How Ancient Mesopotamian Traditions of Sumerians and Babylonians evolved into Mystical, Mythical Systems of Western Europe

sumerians-65429007-3627-40d5-a2b7-de2e0132f01dn

The legacy brought forth by the ancient Mesopotamian world (and Egyptian for that matter) did not die with them or we would not have anything near to the world that we have today. Their influence remains true. One might believe (or prefer to believe) that since we no longer live under the same conditions and guises of our ancestors, that we have somehow been able to escape their Truth – that it could not longer have application for us. Such is clearly not the case, nor did things end entirely with the lore and sagas of the Sumerians and Babylonians and other desert dwellers in a forgotten world – no indeed…

ElvenFaerieBK3rdTHUMB THE ORIGINAL UNDERGROUND CLASSIC RETURNS…
…in a newly formatted, revised & expanded economical third edition!

THE BOOK OF ELVEN-FAERIE:
Secrets of Dragon Kings, Druids, Wizards & The Pheryllt

(Third Edition)

by Joshua Free

An authentic, beautiful and uniquely complete Elvish Druidic Tradition revealed in the light of the mortal world… for the first time ever!


CRITICAL REVIEWS:

The Book of Elven-Faerie actually restores the historical basis of the modern ‘New Age’ movement, resulting from one seeker’s pursuits into the origins of the Druids.

The Book of Elven-Faerie became the literal genesis of the modern ‘Mardukite’ movement when privately released by prolific visionary writer, Joshua Free, in 2006.

The first part of The Book of Elven-Faerie describes the history of elves and faeries, how they were created and eventually disappeared. The second part dives into the practice of the Elven-Faerie tradition, complete with rituals for both groups and solitary practitioners. The book concludes with a section on less formal practices including working on the astral plane, sacred trees, herbalism and forest magick, including use of the Ogham.


ElvenFaerieBK3rdTHUMB Mesopotamia was only the beginning. As time and geography took its hold onto the ancient source traditions, it… evolved! If it can be said that this ancient stream is indeed our well-spring of civilization (examined very intensely in the Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible), and if we are to try to seek the most complete “systems” that have been brought forth through time and space, there are no others that compare to both the beauty and current and functional revival relevance as the Druids. Druidism is just as misunderstood and just as often misrepresented as the mythos and magick of ancient Sumeria, Babylon and Egypt – and, as it turns out, is directly related via a “dragon lineage” that was seeded by a race that we can identify with as “Elves” or “Faerie” begun in ancient Sumeria and Eurasia and carried forth into the Western World by distinct tribes of Europe.

The Book of Elven-Faerie is a revolutionary and controversial compendium of lore and magic reveals many things including:

ElvenFaerieBK3rdTHUMB * How ancient traditions of Mesopotamia (Sumerians, Babylonians, etc.) evolved into mystical, mythical and societal systems of Western Europe.
* How the most arcane practices shaped the customs and beliefs of the Western World.
* How modern folk magic can be traced back through the evolution of human civilization as carried by Druidic Tribes, the Tuatha de Dannan and ancient Anunnaki.

The Book of Elven-Faerie reveals an entire exploration into the Elven Way, Celtic Faerie Tradition and Danubian Druidism is offered — such as never seen before. Drawing from hundreds of sources, a reconstructionist Elven-Faerie tradition and system paradigm is presented by critically acclaimed Mardukite Druid, Joshua Free, including two complete grimoires that bring the magic and enchantment of nature, the elemental world, astral plane and woodlands to life!

A New Mesopotamia Born from Iraq: Babylon Rises Again! | Middle East News

Lamassu.Nabu_2

Thousands of years of political discord, dragon-fights between dynastic and royal bloodlines, new waves of Judeo-Christianity and Islam overshadow the previously observed traditions of the Anunnaki… A cradle of civilization, birthplace of systems and arts of humanity… Religion. Language. Politics. Mesopotamia – Land Between the Rivers – as it was once known from its Greek name; Iraq today, but what of tomorrow?

magansmall After years of the Piscean Age ruled by non-Babylonian Arabs and the near extinction of the Yezidi tribes, who will lay claims to the boundaries of Mesopotamia in a post-modern — post-Iraq — future ever changed by wars for oil, scarred by military from several nations, the rule of Saddam Hussein, and now the Islamic State? Where will the new political boundaries lie when the Middle East disbands and there becomes a New Mesopotamia between the Tigris and Euphrates? And who will be seated in New Babylon when the coming age arrives?

“The exact political boundaries of Babylonia are not generally agreed upon – no more today among scholars and nationalists then by those who physically fought for them in periods of antiquity. For as long as humans have been involved, the are has been plagued in constant conflict…”
— Joshua Free, Liber-51/52

…Mesopotamian territory often included areas outside the pathway of the two rivers, which even themselves changed positions over time with the alteration and then absence of human intervention via the aqueduct canal systems (and other natural occurrences).

MesopotamianReligionFrontcrop By today’s standards the “Middle East” or “Ancient Near East” includes the geographical locations occupied as Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman, Lebanon, Israel, Syria and the United Arab Emirates.

Mesopotamian kingdoms also included (at some time or another) occupations in modern-day Turkey, Armenia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Egypt and Sudan. The term “Middle East” is a modern Euro-centric semantic replacing the academic usage of the ‘Near East’ (as opposed to the ‘Far East’ or “oriental”).

With few exceptions, the Middle East and its ancient Anunnaki legacy is the origin of most major world religions in history including Zoroastrianism (Mazdaism), Mithraism, Canaanite, Yezidism (Yazdanism), the Baha’i Faith, Manichaeism (Mandaeism), Islam (Muslim), Judaism and Christianity!

mesopotamia_map The overt evolution of the Sumerians into a Babylonian Empire is not altogether surprising – on the surface. However, the seeker should keep in perspective just how quickly all of this developed from seemingly nothing. It is true that societal living was originally organized around state religion, but prior to this it was culminated not by the social relationships shared between people, but by their living relationship with the earth.

Where first we have loosely organized nomadic hunter-gatherers that are forced to wander about or dwell in caves, essentially rolling the dice of chance for their survival, very little time passes before the sweeping transition in Mesopotamia toward planned agricultural farming and pasturing shepherds.

cuneisdgsdg Credited with many ‘firsts’ in the development of human history, it is the incorporation and evolution of cuneiform ‘writing’ that the Sumerians can be esteemed for – something which was undoubtedly entirely necessary for the civic growth of the human world.

In fact, it is only with writing that we have any concept at all of the history of humanity; everything prior to this inception, is rightfully considered ‘prehistoric’, at least by ‘modern’ standards.

According to ancient cuneiform tablets, the decision to cultivate civilization in the Middle East was not of men, but of a genetically distinct race known as the Anunnaki – those that appeared to ‘come down from the sky’ and were later called the gods of the original ‘pantheon’ of deities on earth…

Babylonian King Hammurabi and Law Code of Marduk the Sumerian Anunnaki god of Babylon

Whereas Sargon seems to have relied upon his power and his terror tactics to keep people under control, Hammurabi presents himself almost like a modern politician in that he wants to be loved; he wants the people to like him; he’s going to set up laws that will protect them, not laws that will terrify them or force them into submission.
~ Amanda Podany, Cali State Polytech, Pomona, CA

Gates3rdEdfrontcropMINI [This mardukite.com blog is officially extracted from Liber-51/52, available as the standalone title SUMERIAN RELIGION II, in the Liber-50/51/52 anthology MESOPOTAMIAN RELIGION or the new exclusive economical Mardukite Year-2 anthology GATES OF THE NECRONOMICON edited by Joshua Free.]

In the post-SumerianMardukite” era of MESOPOTAMIA, the traditions and systems of the Anunnaki were sealed under MARDUK, heir of ENKI. During the shift to the Age of Aries – the sign of MARDUK, represented by the Ram – religion, spirituality and the global reality experience became fueled by ‘divine politics’.

MesopotamianReligionFrontcrop The famous ‘creation stories’ and ‘mystical definitions’ (that serve as the basis for future traditions and ‘societal reality systems’) were forged onto tablets of propaganda supporting the ‘Babylonian‘ paradigm by the priestscribes of (‘led by’ or ‘dedicated to’) NABU, heir of MARDUK. Figures that appear central to the infrastructure of MARDUKITE BABYLONIAN systems are the younger generations of Anunnaki.

The BABYLONIAN tradition is a direct evolution of the earlier Sumerian legacy – it is the progression of a particular Anunnaki family in MESOPOTAMIA and not simply the assimilation or recreation bring applied to a similar pantheon elsewhere (as we see in cases of later developed ‘classical mythoi’, which simply regurgitate to us the ancient themes with new names. After the vision put forth by Sargon, King Hammurabi (c. 1790 B.C. by the short chronology) is the next most famous and contributory ruler toward a Mardukite Babylon in MESOPOTAMIA.

SumerianReligion2crop In homage of MARDUK‘s own legacy put forth in the ENUMA ELIS (‘Epic of Creation‘), King Hammurabi reconstructed the ziggurat temple-shrine earth-home of the Anunnaki god MARDUK, the Esagila – built in even more ancient times to establish a Mardukite ‘World Order’ prematurely during MESOPOTAMIA‘s evolution – an effort brought down as an archetype of the ‘Tower of Babel’ ziggurat by the Enlilite Sumerians.

The region of Babylon experienced human occupation since at least the Third Millennium B.C. (since at least the period of Sargon of Akkad c. 23rd century B.C.). That being said, the independent BABYLONIAN city-state of the “Mardukite” legacy we know today is launched primarily through the efforts of the Amorite Dynasty; specifically Hammurabi, who goes on to replace the former Enlilite Sumerian tradition with a complete MARDUKITE BABYLONIAN re-write.

hammurabi21233 Sumerian language is denationalized and scribes record all literature in the “new” Akkadian-Old Babylonian that accounts for the majority of pre-Assyrian cuneiform tablets found and translated today. The BABYLONIAN cuneiform tablet literary revolution by the priest-scribes of NABU made way for the means to establish a firmly rooted evolution of the Anunnaki tradition emphasizing MARDUK as the supreme ‘King of the Gods‘ and completely replacing the previously accepted SUMERIAN paradigm.

King Hammurabi is considered the greatest empire engineer since Sargon of Akkad. Efforts conducted over the forty-three year period of his reign allowed a centralized ‘world government’ of BABYLON to form that not only served the people on an emotional, cultural and religio-spiritual level, but also reaching energetic and monetary heights in global wealth, power and influence.

P1050763_Louvre_code_Hammurabi_face_rwk Ruling in honor of MARDUK allowed King Hammurabi to bring BABYLON to fruition with cultural and spiritual heights not visited again for at least one-thousand years when over a millennium later, the Neo-Babylonian era of Nebuchadnezzar II. Of the many conventions introduced to human civilization from BABYLON, the Hammurabic legal system is one of the most significant to note – made popular in consciousness as the “eye for an eye” methodology known as the CODE OF HAMMURABI. Although tyrannical and draconian penalties are the most frequently cited examples of the ‘Code’, the details of 282 laws established the citizen rights, property rights, social rights and even feminine equality rights in addition to the creation of a “class” system.

The CODE OF HAMMURABI, by its own account, does not originate from the mind of King Hammurabi himself, who considered himself merely a catalyst for the reign and power of something ‘greater’ than himself: that of the patron deity, MARDUK. The ‘Code’ or Law of Hammurabi, is in fact what the modern MARDUKITE CHAMBERLAINS movement dubbed the Book of the Law of Marduk.

BABYLON, Gateway of the Gods: Energy Signatures, Mardukite Sigils, Anunnaki Signs & Glyphs

mesopotamianmagicheadline

The Anunnaki sealed within this system are seven. Among them is MARDUK, who sealed the others to Gates of Babylon. Before them all is the Earth Gate [Foundation of Heaven and Earth]. Beyond them all is the Ring [Gate] of Pass Not – wherein resides the Ancestral Chiefs of the Supernal Trinity – The Elder Gods: ANU, ENLIL & ENKI.

BabylonianMagickCSpbCVRcrop [This mardukite.com blog post is officially excerpted from the Tablet-X series of Mardukite Liber G originally prepared for the Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible edited by Joshua Free. These materials also appear reprinted in the ceremonial anthology: Babylonian Magick edited by Joshua Free.]

Anunnaki energetic forces (currents) are bound to the Seven Rays and the Seven Stars – each vibrating a tone or color of manifestation into existence. The powers of the Anunnaki – as connected to the planets and rays – have called the “zonei” or “zones” – comparable even to the Stations of the Spheres.

NecroBible6ththumb May the wise ones come forth to tap the powers of the Gateway of the Gods, that these currents may be realized on Earth once again, and may the Anunnaki return and command obedience. [But beware – the deception of fragmentation for the colors and flavors displayed before you are of a unifying Source.]

Beyond the Seven Zonei [Anunnaki] are the ‘three rays of unity’ that become fractured into ‘seven parts’ in our sensory range of existence. Beyond the Supernal Trinity is the One, the Eternal Source of All Being and Creation that is manifest in the will and form of every thought and thing.

Powers of the younger Elder Gods are sealed to the blood of their ancestors – as is yours, dear Gatekeeper – all from ANU, divided then between ENLIL and ENKI. The ancient texts explain that the Blood of Kingu and the Breath of the Elder Gods were combined for your existence and it is from these things alone that “magickal powers” can be manifest by beings that possesses them.

bookofmardukthumb By succession, NABU can lead you to MARDUK, who can petition you to ENKI; ENKI to ENLIL; and ENLIL to the powers of ANU, if desired. In the true pious tradition, energetic powers are “sent down.” You can distinguish the genetic source of a ‘current’ by its birthright – often connected to the sigil-glyph-insignias of command, mainly triangles, indicating the King of Heaven (ANU), the Lord of the Command (ENLIL) and the Lord of the Earth (ENKI).

Consider the sigil-seals of the two primary factions of Anunnaki that inhabit the ancient world. In the Babylonian tradition, currents of both “sides” are invoked toward the completion of the Earth System. Rivalry (between “polarity”) does not slow the course of natural systems because, as it is said, “the show must go on” and on a larger scale, the duality is not actually perceived to exist (such as in the older Sumerian tradition).As a symbol, the “hexagram” sigil is found where power is evoked from ceremonial grimoires, angelic mysteries, etc. Furthermore, the “merkaba” appears when communication and exchange of energy with forces beyond our sensory range of the material world occurs.

merkbwcrop The five-pointed star is a sign of the human race, and is sealed to the condensed material world and the sensual range of elements. The seven-pointed star is the sign of the Anunnaki. The eight-pointed star is universal of the “StarGate” itself. Between five and seven is the sign of the “Stairway” by which the two are linked, and this is the relevance of the six-pointed star – that which has been seen on emblems of orders and societies for centuries. It lies at the heart of the Solomonic grimoires, the Kabbalah and Merkaba of an energetic matrix-existence.

Marduk, Anunnaki god of Babylon, Son of Enki, Father of Nabu in Mardukite Tradition

mesopotamianmagicheadline

MARDUK — “The blatant industrious and expansive power of Jupiter has been placed at the height of most ‘Sky God’ Olympian pantheons as Zeus or a similar figure. The name (Jupiter) comes from the Romans: Dys Pater, meaning Father-God. This energetic current commands outright worldly success as well as the magic of spirits: command of the hierarchies…

BabylonianMagickCSpbCVRcrop This portion of the mardukite.com blog post is extracted from the “Book of Marduk by Nabu” (Liber W) also available in the recent commemorative “Babylonian Magick” anthology by Joshua Free.

NABU SPEAKS: “The Elder Gods originally attributed this position to Enlil in Sumer. I personally heralded my father, Marduk, into Enlilship of the “younger pantheon” in Babylon. Our tradition there, and in Egypt, was wholly based on him being the centralized figure. You may invoke my father for his strength and power, as well as a petitioner to the Elder Gods. He is exalted as the Master of Magicians, carrying the mysteries of my grandfather, Enki, to Babylon, and bestowing the traditions upon me to relay.” (Liber W)

bookofmardukthumb “The original designation of Jupiter is 50, the number attributed first to Enlil and later to Marduk by the Babylonians, who first was given the number 10. The color of the current is purple, but also airy and fiery colors (yellow, orange, black). This energy is preferred by many leaders and law enforcing folk, lending to those who are pure to receive it, the power to command the material world.” (Liber W)

“Marduk was proclaimed King of the Gods, replacing Enlil, and the other gods were required to pledge allegiance to him and to come to reside in Babylon where their activities could be easily supervised. This usurpation of Enlilship was accompanied by an extensive Babylonian effort to forge the ancient texts. The most important texts were rewritten and altered so as to make Marduk appear as the Lord of the Heavens, the Creator…”
Zecharia Sitchin, The Twelfth Planet (1976)

MesopotamianReligionFrontcrop The name Marduk is actually a modernization taken from the Semitic “meri-dug” [Merodach]. The oldest version of a similar spelling AMAR.UTU [a.mar-utu.ki = “light of the sun on earth”] often translated by contemporaries as “solar calf” or “son of the sun” give some background to Marduk’s esteem. (Liber 50)

[The remainder of this mardukite.com blog post is extracted from a New Babylon Rising article derived from Liber 50 – now available in the new edition of Mesopotamian Religion by Joshua Free.]

zar
Being the foremost son of Enki, he gained power quickly. The Semitic name “Maerdechai” that came from the Chaldeo-Babylonian [silik-mul.u-khi] name meaning “Marduk is God.” The more common MAR.DUG means “son
of the pure mound,” and is thought to be connected to the pyramids in not only Mesopotamia, but in Egypt, where he raised himself as the leader of a third party (interpretation) of gods – the Egyptian Pantheon – as “Amon-Ra,” [and possibly also Horus] again identifying himself with the “solar” current.

cuneisdgsdg Marduk’s decision to raise himself to a monotheistic-like “God” status created new political issues for the Anunnaki on Earth – creating a reason for there to be tensions between the two lineages (of Enki and Enlil) for supremacy on earth (and the right to install their own lineages and chosen humans as kings in their stead).

THE RACE OF MARDUK…

Naturally, the other Anunnaki were less than appreciative of Marduk’s desire to rule over them, although the Age of Aries, his sign, did come and go and he was not left to his own in Babylon (or in Egypt). This seems to have been a disciplinarian act by the other gods.

babel98769878 Assuming the most common interpretation, Marduk was to lose rights of kingship “in heaven” for the taking of a “human” wife instead of his betrothed half-sister Inanna Ishtar. His argument was that Sarpanit (his consort) was a descendent of Adapa [see the Necronomicon Anunnaki
Bible
], and thus of Anunnaki bloodline; that Ishtar was no more interested in the union than he was, and it had not affected her rise to power; and finally, if not “in heaven,” why not “on earth”? The resulting catastrophes in the Middle East are evidence enough that this betrothal did not occur peacefully.

A MARDUKITE LEGACY BORN

In Assyrian accounts, Marduk, as the great “father-god” Assur or Ashur [“Ashshur”], seems to emerge as if from nowhere, leading some scholars in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s to consider the idea of Marduk being a fictitious figure imagined into being for purely political reasons.

Sarpanit [also Sarapan or Zarpanitu] is mentioned often in Babylonian prayer but does not appear in any of the significant mythic tablet cycles. She achieves an elevated status by her relationship with Marduk, and together, they are the parents of Nabu. At the spring equinox “A.KI.TI” festival she is the “spring-maiden” of fertility festivals in Babylon…

ANU – Sumerian gods, Mesopotamian Religion, Babylonian Pantheon Kingship in Heaven

claytabletsheader

The Sumerian tradition made popular in the last century revealed that the Anunnaki pantheon depicted an archetypal “Olympian” pantheon of deities that were originally assigned to twelve positions in the cosmos, later yielding the lore that would give us our “zodiac.”

MesopotamianReligionFrontcrop This mardukite.com blog post is excerpted from the Liber-50 material first appearing in Sumerian Religion by Joshua Free, in addition to the Sumerian Religion anthology Mesopotamian Religion and the Year-2 anthology Gates of the Necronomicon, materials also appearing in the Year-1+2 mega-anthology Necronomicon Anunnaki Legacy (Silver Edition).

Prior to the Ammonite fascination with the local Sun, best observed among the Egyptians and other solar-cults, it was the more “distant” stars that were deemed the “rulers of fate” and “keepers of the
sacred cycles” that kept the organized universe in order.

The “Ancient Ones” from Sumerian prehistory (Abzu, Tiamat, Lahamu, etc.) are given mention in the literature but are viewed as more insubstantial or metaphysical essences of creation, barely able to be personified as traditional deities. We have shown in correlative chapters how such forces could be seen as the primordial essence of the All-Source being first made manifest, but the Sumerians viewed these essences as originally being made substantial in their own personal “All-Father,” a figure-head for their
hierarchical pantheon.

nec The position of Anu in the Sumerian pantheon is as an undisputed “father in heaven,” who acts as the supreme “progenitor” or “father of the gods” from his place as the “king of the local universe.” The “House of Anu” (the traditional “heaven” or “abode of the gods”) is sometimes written as UR.ANU or “Uranus” (from the Greek “Ouranos”) and his most sacred place of “worship” on earth was in Uruk at the temple of E.ANNA – also translated to mean “House of Anu.” The number of his rank is sixty – the number of cosmic perfection.

Mesopotamian traditions came to view Anu in a similar manner as the abstract Babylonian expression of Ilu, where he became the “Lofty One” or “Supreme God Most High” in the pantheon, a remote, distant and indiscriminate All-Father much more representative of the “Heavenly Father” that Jesus alluded to in the New Testament then that of the Old Testament God of the Hebrew. The solidity of his personification becomes increasingly faint in descending traditions, and though within his power, he rarely intervenes or makes an appearance to the “earth” world of gods and men. His main function in the pantheon is as the “Father” of the gods, who are then mainly left to deal with material universe on their own accord.

cuneisdgsdg Few of the incantation tablets (or “prayers”) invoke the powers of Anu directly. The heavenly force is perceived as too vast to be channeled directly by the successors and to degrade it to anything more accessible would be to compromise the nature of what is represented.

In the Semitic traditions the role of Kingship in Heaven is equated to the full extent of power that keeps the universe in motion, contained in an “unspeakable” and “unknowable” name (termed the “Tetragrammaton” in the modern Hebrew-based mysticism).

It is more common for the Sumerian magician or priest to evoke a subsidiary deity from the pantheon (lineage) to invoke the names known to them rather than pursue methods of Egypto-Hermetic cryptomancy to divine and compel spirits against their will using “true-names.” In the Chaldeo-Babylonian tradition, the names of Enki and Marduk are evoked to speak the names (and later deriving traditions often used them to replace obscure and “secret” names altogether).

“True indeed there was a supreme name which possessed the power of commanding the gods and extracting from them a perfect obedience, but that name remained the inviolable secret of Hea [EA – Enki]. In exceptionally grave cases he [the enchanter] besought Hea, through the mediator Silikmulukhi [Marduk], to pronounce the solemn word in order to re-establish order in the world and restrain [temper] the powers of the abyss. But the enchanter did not know that name, and could not in consequence introduce it into his formulae… he could not obtain or make use of it, he only requested the god who knew it to employ it, without endeavoring to penetrate the terrible secret himself.”
–M. Lenormant, Chaldean Magic & Sorcery, 1874

New Babylon – New World, Mardukites Honor the Anunnaki Legacy of Modern Nabu Joshua Free

Borsippa2b2

“Look at things from the point of view of the Sun.”
– A. Crowley

The Modern NABU and the Mardukite movement as a whole, is indeed the continuation of the efforts made in Egypt and Babylon by Ancient NABU – and attempting to fix what went wrong. What we still seek today is actually the same goal that MARDUK himself sought to accomplish in Babylon – the return of all religious worship to the true Source, the All, that which exists outside the Realm of any perceived “gods” of antiquity, as realized in complete self-honesty.

nabuspeaksthumb [This mardukite.com blog post is extracted from the foreword by Sortileges, the Mardukite Chamberlains Arch-Bishop of the Canadian Diocese, as it appeared in the original Liber-12 disclosure: NABU SPEAKS: AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF AN ALIEN MESSENGER (by Joshua Free).]

This main tenet of this goal alone is quite different than other modern approaches and otherwise “occult” organizations, which really only play the game of politics with their spirituality, and are so arrogantly “right” that they fail to see reality. Mardukites, on the other hand, aren’t concerned with what’s “right” or “good” by human standards – words that have actually caused more pain and death on earth than you might think. We are self-honest spirits caring for the future of the living race, the Children of Light. Simply put – we are replacing the program of the ancient human being that Ancient NABU had set with a brand new, self-honest, one for the “true” New Age.

lapis lazuli cloak 1 In my opinion, especially to newcomers to the Mardukite literature, the only self-honest way to begin questioning (or understanding) who (or what) NABU is, requires simply to analyze the following passage from Tablet A.

NABU,
Royal Son of MARDUK and SARPANIT,
Firstborn heir to MARDUK,
Given the secrets of Writing and Wisdom.
He is the messenger [Mercurios] of MARDUK
And organizer of the Mardukite Tribe,
Counselor to… the prophets of Marduk,
Brother to SATU, whom the Egyptian named SETH,
NABU is the vizier of MARDUK on Earth.
As heir to MARDUK, the ANUNNAKI gave him,
The numerical designation of 12.

cuneisdgsdg After becoming more involved with the Mardukites it seemed, at least to me, that it better described Joshua Free, the Modern NABU, the hybrid messenger, far more than the abstract archetypes and “godforms” that came to be interpreted from these ancient mysteries. For me, it is all quite self-explanatory. That NABU is an alien messenger or a human freak is actually of little consequence in the end, because it is not the messenger, but the message that is important.

…And yet.

My own experience and resulting opinion is that NABU is the only modern “occult leader” who has not become eaten by his ego – and this should be quite evident to anyone who has ever worked with him for the last few years he has been public. He has demonstrated how politics in the Mardukite movement was, is and will always be kept to a strict minimum, and only when it arises as a self-honest necessity in bringing the work to society that these matters are dealt with at all. This is very different from other modern “New Age” or “esoteric” movements that I have had contact with – where only self-delusion and ego-masturbation prevailed.

MesopotamianReligionFrontcrop Concerning myself, all I will say is that the teachings, writings and friendship of NABU have allowed me to not only have a completely new outlook on life, but also a very real self-honest new experience of the Universe – a true and definite paradigm shift. The Anunnaki Legacy we have spent several years putting into print contains answers to every question that has haunted humanity since as long as it can remember in ages past; Systemology offers a new hope for the future.
