“Necronomicon: The Anunnaki Grimoire” Hardcover Release Completes 10th Anniversary “Mardukite Core” Trilogy Series

Joshua Free, world renown esoteric expert, Director of the modern “Mardukite Research Organization,” and author of the underground bestselling “Mardukite Core”–including “Necronomicon: The Anunnaki Bible” and “Gates of the Necronomicon”–invites the Seeker on an incredible progressive esoteric journey to illuminate the most ancient and powerful magical tradition on earth within the text of this final volume of the “Mardukite Core” 10th Anniversary Collector’s Edition Hardcover “Necronomicon Trilogy,” revealed with perfect clarity.

Originally published in four installments, this special Necronomicon Grimoire anthology collects some of the most practical occult contributions from the modern Mardukite Research Organization as developed underground for the past decade, including two texts recently revised and released as stand-alone pocket hardcover editions: The Complete Book of Marduk by Nabu and The Maqlu Ritual Book.


NECRONOMICON – THE ANUNNAKI GRIMOIRE:
A MANUAL OF PRACTICAL BABYLONIAN MAGICK

Collector’s Edition – Hardcover

edited by Joshua Free
Complete Year-3 Liber-E,W/Z,M+K
10TH ANNIVERSARY
Global Release: May 30 2019
[An alternate edition–“Practical Babylonian Magic: Invoking the Power of the Sumerian Anunnaki“–is also planned for paperback release on June 21 2019.]


The complete “Mardukite Core” library collection is a revolutionary “New Age” advancement in authentic historical, spiritual and mystical research drawn from a unique unparalleled combination of archeological findings and esoteric mystical-magical traditions. A wellsprings of hidden information and cuneiform tablet translations awaits the seeker—drawn from ancient folds of forgotten lore: Sumerian, Babylonian, Akkadian, Assyrian, Chaldean, Egyptian, Yezidic, Zoroastrian and more. A holistic research-intensive path, rooted in the heart and soul of humanity in Mesopotamia, is laid out clearly for the “Truth Seeker” to see—in its pure and undefiled state.

In the midst of this, now in the 21st century, the “Mardukites” are a very real modern philosophical and meta-spiritual “New Thought” movement aligned specifically with the Anunnaki paradigm. In ancient Babylon, this was famously founded upon the followers of Marduk—recognized among the local pantheon as patron of Babylonian tradition and “King of the Gods” for this branch of the Mesopotamian mythos with special assistance by the Nabu priesthood of “Mardukite” scribes…

Yet—maps are not the journey—and while many are called; few are chosen. This path, although marked in signs and beacons, is not clearly or widely tread. This “pure undefiled” Self-Honest journey to the Source is not a path of the masses—and even those esoterically-inclined have many times retreated from its fundamentals and antiquated semantics, returning to more familiar veils and shadows run rampant throughout modern “New Age” movements. Others have attempted to “cherry-pick” the most practical applications from our earlier works—ironically, the very same coveted collection of materials now revealed in NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI GRIMOIRE—the final volume of this trilogy.

The newly released concluding volume of the hardcover trilogy — NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI GRIMOIRE — brings together the most “practical” materials from the “Mardukite Core” to provide the most pragmatic “grimoire”—both applicable to modern times and remaining true to the Anunnaki Legacy demonstrated in ancient Mardukite Babylon. Within these pages, the Seeker will discover instructions and rites given in two recently revised stand-alone “spellbooks”—Complete Book of Marduk by Nabu (containing Mardukite Liber-W, Z and parts of G) and The Maqlu Ritual Book (otherwise Mardukite Liber-M).

“To properly prepare the Seeker and introduce this work with integrity,” as Joshua Free explains in his preface, “I have also rewritten and updated material from Liber-E, the classic text released publicly as Magan Magic—from which I begin this anthology with an Introduction to Babylonian Magic. Finally—to complete our ‘Mardukite Core’ 10th Anniversary Collector’s Edition trilogy, Liber-K, also known as Enochian Magic & Kabbalah, is featured as an appendix.”

While many other texts appear within the Mardukite Library, it is the original “Mardukite Core” that modern Mesopotamian movements build their foundations from—and while the Seeker is strongly encouraged to at least pursue the greater legacy represented by all three volumes of the newly restored “Core,” there is more than sufficient information supplied for personal and practical exploration of these esoteric mysteries within this current “grimoire” But—be warned, for I am entrusting to a Seeker this volume apart from the supporting literature as it stands; and without impunity. Yet—for those who have already accumulated and worked through our bulky pile of research tomes—this current edition will be welcomed and celebrated for its revolutionary accessibility.

Maqlu Tablets – Ancient Babylonian Magical Ceremony & Anti-Witchcraft Rituals Revealed on Cuneiform Records

IMAGINE A WORLD where the “Purge” is real! …except instead of gathering together in large festivals of humans killing humans, the spirit of all rage, anger, evil, pestilence, disease, worry–the very demons of civilization–are burned in effigy, exorcised and banished by public ceremonies–mass movements of conscious energy with world-changing intentions! The sacred Mardukite Babylonian rites and rituals from the “Maqlu” cuneiform tablet collection suggest just that!

[The remainder of this Mardukite blog post is excerpted from the newly revised and updated 10th Anniversary Collector’s Edition Mardukite Liber-M pocket hardcover — The Maqlu Ritual Book: A Pocket Companion to Babylonian Exorcisms, Banishing Rites & Protective Spells by Joshua Free — also appearing in the forthcoming anthologies: “Necronomicon-The Anunnaki Grimoire” (Hardcover, May 30) and “Practical Babylonian Magic” (Paperback, June 21).]

THE MAQLU RITUAL BOOK is a collector’s edition of a long-lost translated cuneiform tablet collection revealing the most ancient and complete guide to Babylonian spiritual and magical protection spells, exorcisms rites, and banishing rituals–right from the heart of Mesopotamia as used by Mardukite priests, priestesses and magicians of Sumerian Anunnaki tradition. It makes the perfect addition to any modern “Mesopotamian Neopaganism” library collection!

MAQLU TABLET 1

Within Joshua Free’s MAQLU RITUAL BOOK you will discover the most ancient and coveted complete magical manual concerning the Dark Arts ever known to man–newly translated and prepared by the “Mardukite Research Organization” for a special 10th Anniversary Collector’s Edition. This tome celebrates a decade of intensive academic and esoteric exploration, drawn from the underground archives of “Mardukite Chamberlains,” and now accessible to the modern public for contemporary practice in an incredible new way for the first time ever.

Here is an authentic cuneiform tablet collection–perhaps the very first “spellbook” of its kind on the planet–the complete account of a Mesopotamian magical tradition that forms a “grimoire” of very real and very ancient Sumerian Anunnaki magic. “The Maqlu Ritual Book” reveals materials used by magicians and priests for thousands of years to reverse the effects of evil spells and curses, banish disease and nightmares, combat in wizards’ duels, and even conjure protection and blessings of the gods to benefit the entire community!

The Maqlu Ritual Tablets of Babylon… no mere “folk magic” or rural witches Book of Shadows, the Maqlu cuneiform tablet series was first in possession only of the highest orders of priest-scribes, temple-magicians, priestesses and kings of ancient Mesopotamia–the ancient “cradle of modern human civilization.” Maqlu magic was so powerful that the government of the greatest ancient empires in history employed it to ensure prosperous lands, happiness among the population, and carrying the awesome abilities to dispel chaos, evil, and malignant forces in the world–things we long for, and are in great need of, even today. Perhaps this long forgotten occult secret is the key!

“The complete “Maqlu” operation evolved from what was once probably a much simpler, mostly internalized, meditative and solitary protection ritual used by the earliest priests, priestesses and magicians in Mesopotamia. It later developed more dramatically as a public “Fire Festival” in Sumer and Babylonia, involving entire community populations gathered together in combined mass focuses of emotional and spiritual intention to “drive out” or dispel “evil” and “evil-doers” of the land. Here we see an ancient demonstration in effective abilities of mass-consciousness moving energies when large groups—or better, the majority of the population—focuses on a specific “emotional” event. Even as “quantum” events, the social effects carry very real ramifications for the consciousness of the population—and perhaps the greater cosmos as a whole in this entangled universe. So long as the event is properly orchestrated, the individuals need not even be aware of the exact esoteric nature of their participation.”

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.

Greatest Occult Classic of 21st Century now available as a two-volume set for 10th Anniversary | Arcanum by Joshua Free

Commemorating the 10th Anniversary of the single volume ‘blue cover’ edition (also available), Joshua Free’s classic ARCANUM materials are now more accessible than ever — available in installments as a two volume ‘red cover’ edition set!


ARCANUM by Joshua Free is a unique literary contribution toward harmonic unification of knowledge receiving many names through the ages: magickal, occult, pseudo-scientific and now, even quantum. The rise of technology and the recent “information age” has provided a wellspring of metaphysical lore, but it is not mutually synchronous with other knowledge or even other New Age systems, often due to vocabulary use.

“New Agers” separate their sects and factions in the same manner as the scientists and the religious officials, and we (as a society) have not been progressing towards global unity. All of our developments and paradigms of truth continue to grow and prove themselves only when isolated within the system in which they were designed. This all changes when taking the “wide-angle” approach to the whole picture — the entire systematic gestalt of the metaphysical universe explored in ARCANUM.

ARCANUM : The Great Magickal Arcanum by Joshua Free

This innovative presentation requires that YOU have immediate access to supplemental information on any given facet of related knowledge. This is indicated in the text by the appearance of “links” or bold-faced type that prompts YOU to explore other specific parts of the book for additional clarification. This design allowed the author the ability to cover more topics in a tighter space without having to be unnecessarily repetitive in reprinting the more common aspects. ARCANUM is not to be mistaken as simply another “A-to-Z Encyclopedia of Magick” or a superficial discourse concerning “where science and magick meet.” In fact, this text was not written for the true beginner in mind and its scope surpasses practical magick alone.

ARCANUM has no specific starting point, allowing it to be integrated into any personal background or developmental stage. With sufficient time, study and practice, the seeker works through the entire body of knowledge, beginning first with the facets of individual fancy and inclination, and then continuing on with the remainder of the entangled material, which you will find to be coherently interconnected, not simply clumped together to make a massive series. By presenting this primer of a new standard model of the mysteries, any individual, couple or study group can find the ease of using this global” system in spite of prior personal religious, spiritual, philosophical, scientific and academic background or accomplishments!

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

[This blog-post appears courtesy of Mardukite Liber-51/52 available within the NEW Deluxe Edition of Sumerian Religion by Joshua Free. These materials are also available in the Year-2 Mardukite Anthology: Gates of the Necronomicon.]

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…
