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.

Babylonian Religon, Secrets of Nabu Tutu and Origins of Hermetic Transcendental Magic

Borsippa2b2

This is an excerpt from THE BOOK OF NABU, named for he who is found among the “younger pantheon” of Anunnaki ‘gods’ (such as were observed in Babylon and then later in Egypt). NABU is one of the key figures (sometimes spelled NEBO in later Semitic languages) who recorded and maintained the tablets of the Babylonian Tradition– the prophet-son, Mardukite herald and heir of the god of Babylon: MARDUK.

NecroBible6ththumb THE FIRST TABLET OF NABU is from the Mardukite Tablet-T Series found in the Year-1 ‘Mardukite Core’ released in the Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible, in addition to the Legacy Edition, the Compact Edition and the Babylonian Magick (Grimoire).

nec Under the name and title of NABU-TUTU [which can be found listed among the “Fifty Names” from the Enuma Elis and translated as TAHUTI in Egyptian systems], NABU heralded the age and wisdom of MARDUK and under the direction of his father, recorded the legacies of the gods, kept safe the secret knowledge and prayers of the ANUNNAKI, and also the magick of ENKI, all of which could be maintained for posterity by a sacred priesthood – later collected in modern times as the “NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE” – and the NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI LEGACY (SILVER EDITION) – am authentic book of dead, ancestral names, memories and powers!

Borsippa2b2b2b

The name or title of NABU literally means, “He who speaks for,” translated as “prophet” or “messenger herald.” The Ordo Nabu Maerdechai presently observes the current editor JOSHUA FREE for this position in modern times, working with an active division of the Mardukite Chamberlains known as the Council of Nabu-Tutu…

nabuspeaksthumb The Earthling spouse of MARDUK and mother to NABU — SARPANIT (seventh generation born from Adapa) — is rarely given respect as the “way to her husband’s ear and favor” in the traditionally understood pantheon, but NABU, being half-divine (directly the son of MARDUK) was given a position and ranking among the younger Anunnaki — after the rise to supremacy of MARDUK, recognized in Egypto-Babylonian lore, who then required a legal heir, NABU — and charge of his own Gate.

THE FIRST TABLET OF NABU & THE ORIGINS OF THE HERMETIC TRADITION

And so NABU {indicated as I} went to the Mountain [pyramid],
To hear the Voice of the Great God come from the Mountain.
The Unseen God, whose vision and voice comes to the prophet.
And the voice of MARDUK came out of the Mountain [pyramid].

“I am the voice of the God who cannot be here.
I am the voice of the God who is in the hearts of all men.
I am the voice of the God who appears in many faces.
It is I, the voice of the God, that will teach you the way,
And I command you, dear son, to write this what I say
On tablets for all of humanity’s sake,
That they might honor the Gods of their Ancestors [ANUNNAKI]
But worship the Eternal Source of All Being & Creation.
I am not only the voice of your God, but also your commander.
Prepare for the long and hard battle such as lies ahead.”

NABU asked MARDUK:
“What can men do to prepare for the sake of their own lives,
How can they live to serve and worship proper?”

And the voice of MARDUK echoed out:
“Live piously and by the Union Code [Tablet] of the ANUNNAKI.
For there is no longer any religion higher than the Source.
And the desire of God is for us to love one another,
And not to sacrifice the life which has been made possible.
A certain knowledge of what is good and evil on Earth,
With perfected choice will be the former, so is the will of God.
There is no pleasure to be gained from the wasteful shed of blood.
Celebrate life and sing praises to the creation around you,
Which has been carefully made for you, by the Highest,
Under who the ANUNNAKI live and reign over the Lower.”

And NABU asked MARDUK:
“For what can men do to repent of their sins if not by sacrifice?”

The voice of MARDUK responded:
“Give to the Eternal Source dedication and commitment in life,
And this is all that is asked of you in this life.
Men approach the face of God in fear and beg forgiveness,
When their efforts could be better spent in prayer and praise.
Men flood the temple-shrines with more food than is consumed,
When it could be better distributed among the poor.
Bring the God of Life no more vain offerings of flesh.
Pray and live a pious life at one with creation. How hard is this?
Make simple rituals if it pleases you,
For only prayer and devotion is asked of the God of All.
Do not deny yourself of a happy existence in the name of God.
Never let your livelihood be neglected because you worship God.
Lives dedicated to the Source are not preoccupied by worship,
For to go out and live and act the pious life among men is best.”

Oldest Writings Reveals Sumerian Anunnaki Stargate Religion Seeks All-as-One God

claytabletsheader

Cuneiform tablet sources, the most ancient written records kept by humans, identify The Primordial Abyss, which later came to be viewed as the “all-source” for the first manifestations of material existence — it was originally nameless…

SumerianReligion2ndfrntcrop [This mardukite.com blog post is officially excerpted from Mardukite Liber 50, available as Sumerian Religion by Joshua Free, materials also found in the Year-2 anthology Gates of the Necronomicon and the mega-anthology Necronomicon: The Anunnaki Legacy silver edition.]

Fundamentally, the beauty and simplicity of the infinitude of space and pure potentiality of existence is enough for an “All-Existing Being” — but this is an almost “static” existence with no forces in movement – quite simply All-is-One (or none!) in the universe.

The non-existence was not animated, not yet manifest and so required the “motion” of existence. This was born of duality, but of the highest spiritual intent and not to be confused with physical morality – for it was by the vary opposition of the currents of “chaos” and “order” set in motion with a gentle pendulum-like drive toward constant activity with one another that caused existence.

cuneisdgsdg A common interpretation of the ancient Sumerian semantics of this All-Being is best given as “ILU” in Chaldeo-Babylonian literature, a concept derived from the Sumerian “DIN.GIR” meaning essentially the “All-God”, drawn from the Source, but later pantheistic interpretations would translate this as a plural form: gods.

[SUMERIAN RELIGION — Prolific writer, Joshua Free, presents this topic such as the modern world has never before had access to, developed from the revolutionary work conducted by the next generation of Seekers actively using a revival Anunnaki tradition in the present day…]

The name ILU was held in reverence to the priests of Babylon who sought to “re-connect” with this source by “ascending” the “Ladder of Lights” or “BAB.ILU”The Gateway to/of God (also known as the “Tower of Babel”). Later, when the name became blended with “gods” it was also connected to “stars” and the function of such became more clearly defined to some as a “Gateway to the Stars” or (as Daniel Jackson would prefer) a StarGate.

SumRelSet The simplicity is immediately shattered when enter the philosophers and religious scientists for we have all-too-easily overlooked the stumbling block of our most ancient tablets concerning divinity.

“[For] the idea of Ilu was too comprehensive and too vast to receive a very definite exterior form, and consequently [too obscure for] the adoration of the people. The personality of Ilu was not clearly defined for a long time; his office and title as ‘God One’ were at first given to Anu, ‘the ancient god,’ and the first person of the supreme trinity, which was afterward held to emanate from Ilu; the priests did not distinguish the primordial principle from the chief of this trinity.”
–M. Lenormant, Chaldean Magic & Sorcery (1874)

Biblical scholars now have conceded to the idea that the Semitic books of Genesis are indeed the product of a far more ancient Mesopotamian influence. God, the creator of existence, is found alone and everywhere at once, a “primordial sea” washing through an infinite abyss.

cunei “First was the primeval sea. Nothing concerning the origin or creation of the primeval sea has as yet been discovered in the available Sumerian texts, and the indications are that the Sumerian sages looked upon the primeval sea as a kind of first cause and prime mover, never asking themselves what preceded it in time and space.”
–S.N. Kramer, Sumerian Mythology (1944)
