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.”

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?

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!

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.

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…
