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.

Mardukite 9th Anniversary Celebrated with NEW edition of “History of the Necronomicon” Anthology

Greetings Seeker:

The legacy surrounding the modern Mardukite movement has now reached epic proportions, surpassing any original “mortal” expectations from those involved at its inception. I knew better and held high prophetic aspirations toward my efforts brought to the public nearly a decade ago with the underground release of the first two ‘Mardukite Truth Seeker Press‘ publications – “Arcanum” (Liber A) and “Book of Elven-Faerie” (Liber D) on the 2008 Summer Solstice. The whole research organization, underground network, magical order and permanent establishment of the “New Babylon Desert Preserve” in southern Colorado all exploded out of these two books.

After founding the Mardukite Ministries in 2008. a research collective of diverse individuals from all walks of life found themselves drafted into ranks of the “Mardukite Chamberlains” over the next four years. Each year, Mardukite Truth Seeker Press would release a trilogy or series of materials that have since found their way into annual anthologies – perhaps most famous and widely circulated of them being the (Year-1) “Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible.” Completing
the archival library, the fourth and final of these cycles (Year-4) is collected in the anthological tome: HISTORY OF THE NECRONOMICON.

Although all three books composing HISTORY OF THE NECRONOMICON are stand-alone titles, they represent three keys to uncovering the final mystery, the ultimate “secrets” of the “Necronomicon,” meaning those very powers and forces that have been interacting with kings, priests, mystics, poets, magicians and occultists for thousands of years, since the dawn of ancient Mesopotamia and the birth of the Sumerian and Babylonian cultures – though we could say the birthplace of human civilization as we know it today and its systems. To fully make use of any magics and to base reality on any beliefs, the cycle must be closed with relevant answers – and the Mardukite HISTORY OF THE NECRONOMICON provides these.

Since the original release of the HISTORY OF THE NECRONOMICON anthology in 2012, stand-alone titles of the material have since seen updated editions, including the Fifth Anniversary publication of “Enochian Magic & Kabbalah” (Liber K) and “Crossing to the Abyss” (Liber 555). Materials for Liber-555 also appeared as “Stargate to the Abyss” and “Necronomicon for Beginners” simultaneously in 2012. All of this, in addition to the critical reflective narrative adapted from “Nabu Speaks!” (Liber 12) is revealed within HISTORY OF THE NECRONOMICON.


Whether you happen upon “History of the Necronomicon” as your introduction to the Mardukite paradigm or have been long-awaiting to complete your archival library with the final revisions of the Mardukite Core, this anthology is sure to change the way you see history, life, the Universe …and most importantly, your Self.

Mardukite New Year Rituals of Ancient Babylonian Akiti / Akitu Spring Equinox Festival

The Processional Way in Ancient Babylon for the New Years Akiti / Akitu (Zagmuk) Festival

The Processional Way of MARDUK and NABU in Ancient Babylon for the New Years Akiti / Akitu (Zagmuk) Festival

THE BOOK OF ZAGMUK (available in Babylonian Magick, Wizards of the Wastelands or the Ceremonial Color Edition) is the Official Mardukite-Anunnaki companion to the Babylonian New Year Festival, known as Akitu (Akiti) or Zagmuk, originally available exclusively to the modern Mardukite Research Organization and Mardukite Chamberlains.


Deluxe Color Edition

Deluxe Color Edition

THE BOOK OF ZAGMUK BY NABU (forthcoming as a pocket companion) is a specially prepared ceremonial text with selected ‘tablet collections’ that combine materials from the Mardukite Wizards of the Wastelands in conjunction with critical excerpts from Joshua Free’s NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE, essentially comprising the internal methods of the ‘Order of Nabu‘ to establish Mardukite ‘religious’ continuity in Babylon and MARDUK’s royal legitimacy at the height of the Babylonian pantheon using the Babylonian New Year Festival, Akitu (Akiti) or Zagmuk.

zagakitu

“The Babylonian observation of the annual (solar) year starts with the ‘Mardukite’ observation of ‘zagmuk’ – meaning ‘the beginning of the year’ or ‘new year’. This 12-day festival is fixed to arrange its height at the beginning of the month of Nissanu, the ‘Spring Equinox’ or March 21st, also coinciding with the beginning of the astrological wheel, when the sun enters Aries.” The Book of Zagmuk by Nabu

zagmuk

The festival is significant for its contributions toward solidifying both the religious and political paradigms of ‘Mardukite’ Babylon. The festival is also known by its Sumerian-derived Akkadian name – A.KI.TI or A.KI.TU – meaning ‘On Earth, Life’. This large public festival observance is a reconfirmation of the supremacy of MARDUK and the Babylonian Pantheon and is probably the single most important ancient ‘holiday’ for the tradition.

BabylonianMagickCSpbCVRcrop After the time of gods had come and gone, the priests and kings continued to observe the ceremonial customs using representative statuary to symbolized the ‘divine’ forms of Marduk and Nabu as they make a procession through the streets of Babylon and are placed in the temples to witness a dramatic reenactment of the Enuma Elis and other rites and rituals that commemorate the ‘Mardukite’ tradition (paradigm) and seal the position of the priests and king as the ‘chosen’ ambassadors and intermediaries between the ‘gods’ of heaven and the people of earth.

I see… so, perhaps they are just the figment of this guy, Joshua Free’s, imagination — some outspoken kid who someone made the mistake of giving a YouTube account to? …ok, well, now you’re just being mean!

NecroPBthumb The term Mardukite had received little attention prior to its use by Joshua Free, starting in 2005. Although clearly connected to the Anunnaki being known in Babylonian literature (and traditions) as MARDUK, the organization has never once advocated the ‘worship’ of this being, or any being in the conventional sense of the word.

NecroBible6ththumb JOSHUA FREE explains that the choice of the term, among many personal reasons, was due to the very lack of its use prior.

“Rather than try to ‘recapture’ or ‘reform’ the focus and beliefs from within an existing paradigm, it became clear to me that the solution was in returning to the most ancient sources and foundations of human societal civilizations in order to bring the clearest message through on what happened to bring things to the point they are now and what this might mean for the future,” says Free.

MARDUK (mar-dug, marutuk, merodach, maerdechai) | Babylonian God, patron to Nabu priest-scribe magicians of Sumeria

bronzetreehmardk

The industrious and raw expansive power of Jupiter is placed at the height of most ‘Olympian’ pantheons (Zeus or similar).
The Book of Marduk by Nabu
edited by Joshua Free

The word-name Jupiter comes from the Romans: Dys Pater (Latin), meaning “Father-God.” This energetic current commands outright worldly success as and the magic of spirits: command of the “spiritual” hierarchy of astral spirits.

MARDUK with the Dragon of Babylon, SIRRUS

MARDUK with the Dragon of Babylon, SIRRUS

Anunnaki Elder Gods originally attributed this position to ENLIL in Sumer. I, NABU personally heralded my father, MARDUK, into Enlilship of the “younger pantheon” of Anunnaki observed in Babylon. Our “Mardukite” tradition there, and in Egypt, was wholly based on his centralized leadership.

MARDUK is exalted as the Master of Magicians, carrying the mysteries of my grandfather, ENKI, to Babylon, and bestowing the traditions upon me to relay. The original designation of the Jupiter position in the pantheon is 50, the number attributed by Enlilite Sumerians to ENLIL and later to MARDUK for Babylonian Religion (who previously held the designation of 10).

Bom3rdthumb Invoke my father, MARDUK, for his strength and power, as well as to petition the Elder Gods. The color of the “Mardukite” 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…


“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


P1050763_Louvre_code_Hammurabi_face_rwk 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” : gives some background to Marduk’s esteem.

As explained by Joshua Free in SUMERIAN RELIGION:

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 of gods – the Egyptian Pantheon – as “Amon-Ra” (again identifying himself with the “solar” current).

SumRel3rdthumb The decision of MARDUK 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)…

NEW BABYLON RISING – Books of Pheryllt, Mesopotamian Mathematics & The Anunnaki – Winter 2014 eZine

NBRheaderSMALLnotuse

GREETINGS & SALUTATIONS FELLOW TRUTH SEEKER!

Welcome to our tenth online eZine/issue of “New Babylon Rising: Anunnaki, Alien Gods & Spiritual Traditions“, developed by Mardukite Truth Seeker Press in a NexGen futurist effort of public inform in dedication to ancient literary records — primarily those cuneiform — and the preservation of the Anunnaki legacy including the human evolution of its societal systems and traditions inspired across global space and time. The feature articles of this issue emphasis numbers and mathematics as it applied to Sumerians and Babylonians, the newly released debut title in the series Books of Pheryllt, and a very special offering: a concise, easy-to-read, A-to-Z quick-study guide to the Anunnaki!

Enki2 The collective efforts of the Mardukite Research Organization reveal these antiquated mysteries for ALL; our archive of books developed explicitly to shine a new light to understand the most critical subjects for the Next Generation: where we come from, what we are, where we are and where we’re going “..in this ocean of chaos”!

In addition to those otherwise cultural specific elements (Mesopotamian and Celtic), the work publichsed by the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press offers a wide range of NexGen education including — the origins and development of human belief systems — particularly what wisdom and knowledge may be drawn from ancient “divine” encounters contributing to establishment of the illusive artificially generated social “systems” among the population, NexGen evolution of transhumanism, and, of course, fragmented languages, religions, and the global distribution and corruption of “esoteric” or otherwise “occult” knowledge regarding the true superior spiritual (internal) potential of the human condition, its external manifestation in engineering the reality we experience everyday and the progression of the “immortal” spirit beyond this realization…

Indeed, we are in dangerous territory…
And this time…
THERE BE DRAGONS!

MesopotamianReligionFrontcrop The annual year was originally only divided into three seasons: beginning, middle and end. A year in Babylonia was separated into a cycle of 12 periods of 30 degrees or days. These periods, equated to the ‘moon’, were called ‘moonths’ or more appropriately ‘months’. Of course, the sky-wise priests were aware of the actual appearance of 13 lunar cycles in a year, so an additional shortened month was acknowledged to make the cycle fit. In most cases, a ‘new moon’ meant a ‘new month’ and so the days counted in a month are the days counted in the progression of a moon – though naturally the disparities between lunar and solar time had to be accounted for, and with time the ‘Chaldeans’ had perfected it.

cuneisdgsdg The annual cycle was marked distinctly by two primary religious festivals – the spring festival of Akitu and the winter festival of Zagmuk. Both appear to be represented or distinguished by the symbol of ‘divine marriage’, later meaning the relationship between the ruling king and his lands.

Originally, however, the more popular fertility interpretation of these festivals, particularly in the spring, were based on land renewal and with the development and spread of these tradition, Akitu became known as Ostara – the pagan Easter – in dedication to Ishtar (Inanna). Not too surprisingly, the pre-Christian account incorporated into the symbolism of the later Judeo-based traditions also includes the proverbial theme of resurrection – in our case: the infamous story of Ishtar’s ‘descent‘ into the ‘Underworld’, where she is perceived of as ‘dead’ for three days.

vlcsnap-2011-08-13-21h32m43s221 Given the way modern calendars are oriented, the start of each ancient month would be considered near the ‘middle’ of current months – much like the seasonal observations. Although the festivals in ancient times were oriented to the naturally occurring solstices and equinoxes, it was often customary to observe them ceremonially during the closest full moon. All of this gave way to a generally ‘fluid’ incorporation of time into society that is varied in its interpretations among modern scholars.

The ancients made use of ‘water-clocks’ at night and ‘sun-clocks’ during the day. But more important to the survival of an agricultural society then gauging the minutes of a day for a ‘time-punch’ was the tracking of the annual cycle for planting and harvesting. Quite different than what the remainder of the Western World has familiarity with, the seasonal cycles in the deserts of Babylonia are unique. We have a recognizable summer in June, July and August where there is not rain and nothing grows – as we might expect – but then the region is plunged right into its rainy season in September, and farmers must be ready to plant their barley by October with a harvest necessary before the summer sun returns.

Gates3rdEdfrontcropMINI A different system of observation was used to calculate and measure ‘divine time’ in relation to ‘earth time’. This gave rise to what contemporaries call an ‘age’ – such as the current ‘age’ of Pisces and the forthcoming ‘age’ of Aquarius. Apart from the garbled nonsense of today’s horoscopes, the observation of zodiacal ages and alignments during the year are very real events. For whatever credibility the modern mind might wish to give the ancient astrologie omen tablets, the ability to perfectly chart time over long periods by using verifiable astronomical events, that we can even rely on today as investigators into this ancient culture, is quite impressive by any standards.

We can establish the chronological procession of the ages, but not necessarily a definition of when they have absolute turning points. They are measured in 2,160 year periods (72 x 30), connected to their ‘domain’ of visibility in the ‘Celestial Sphere’. The progression is visible in the stars but the clear boundary line that defines each is in many ways obscure. For example, when specifically does the current age enter ‘Aquarius’? Counting backward, the Mardukite school of thought might have suggestive input to apply.

259202494_2439cd36a1_o2 Following earlier thwarted attempts to solidify global rulership, the real Babylonian Reformation by the Anunnaki god MARDUK, with the aid of Nabu, occurred as a result of the ‘Age of Aries’ having arrived and ‘promised power’ not being ‘passed’ to him. This would have to be circa 2150 B.C., when the movement became notably public.

How long prior to this, pointing to the turn of the ‘Age of Aries’, would they have waited? If it were only ten years, then the Piscean Age really would have been marked by the birth of Jesus Christ – exactly 2,160 years later – notoriously represented by the fishes. Other ‘scholarly’ dates for the start of the Age of Aries include 2200, 2150, 2000 and 1875 B.C. Based on these figures, this ‘era’ of reportedly ‘new consciousness’ could be in effect now, later in this century, in the year 2150 or even closer to 2600…

Time, as we have found no different today then yesterday, is indeed entirely relative!

NINKI {35} [“Lady of the Earth”] — The official spouse (consort) of ENKI, also known as DAMKINA [“Lady Who Came to Earth”]. NINKI is the daughter of ALALU (the ‘heavenly’ king prior to ANU) and the the mother of MARDUK.

NINLIL {45} “Lady of Air-Space” — The official spouse (consort) of ENLIL, also known with the epithet SUD (“nurse”). The background to the relation- ship between ENLIL and NINLIL is not commonly found in the typical cuneiform tablet cycles. Naturally, the lore is not Mardukite or Babylonian in origin and does not appear in the tablet catalogue or commentary of (modern) Mardukite Core anthologies. The cycle is sometimes referred to as “Enlil’s Banishment to the Underworld.”

NINSHUBUR [“Lady of the East”] — The personal assistant (Mercury), second-in-command to the goddess INANNA (ISHTAR). She does not take a consort and there is an alluded love-relationship between her and INANNA (ISHTAR).

MesopotamianReligionFrontcrop NINURTA {4/(50)} “Lord of the South Wind” — The official heir-son of ENLIL, born of ENLIL and NINMAH, espoused to BAU. NINURTA represents the current of Saturn in the Mardukite paradigm, representative both of “hidden power” and “hidden secrets” (an idiom for the dark power and secrets behind the origins and legacy of Babylon). In the Enlilite Sumerian worldview, NINURTA (called NINIB in Babylonan) is the Enlil-in-waiting, a position usurped by MARDUK proper for the Age of Aries. As Enlilship is typically symbolized by ‘dragonslaying‘ — the same motif present in the elevation of MARDUK in Babylon rivaling the dragon-queen TIAMAT can be seen in the older Sumerian cycles where the prowess of NINURTA is shown in his ability to fight the mighty dragon KUR. His colors are black and violet and his essence is corresponded to the metal lead.

NISABA — The Sumerian agricultural goddess of writing and scribes; replaced by the god NABU in the Mardukite Babylonian Anunnaki tradition.

SAMAS / SHAMMASH {20} — The official solar deity of the Enlilite Sumerian Anunnaki pantheon, brother to INANNA (ISHTAR), born of NANNA and NINGAL. The sun represents the brilliance and radiant energy of life on earth; the light that allows organic life to grow and even the manner of which ‘time’ [and ‘lifespan’] is divided. Expansive powerful energy of the solar current is invoked in magical ceremonies for general success and well-being. The fiery nature of the ‘star’ is called upon to ‘incinerate iniquities’ and reveal the nature of darkness and lies, meaning: the revelation of truth. Mistaken (by modern scholars) as monotheistic ‘sun worship’, solar veneration is really the celebration of life. As an archetypal representative of the ‘starry’ ‘heavens’, the sun signifies the physical presence and watchful eye of the ‘All-God’, invoked in matters of law to bring righteous judgment to critical worldly situations. SAMAS is sacred to Sunday, the colors gold and yellow and in the essence of gold.

magansmall SARPANIT {(5)/(45)} — The part-earthling (seventh generation of ADAPA, by ENKI) chosen royal spouse (consort) of MARDUK; princess-queen patron goddess (ISHTAR) of Babylon and mother to NABU. In alternative versions of the lore, her name ERU (or ERUA) designates her as the ‘mother-goddess’ of the ‘Children of MARDUK’ (later associated with the light-folk or elves of Europe).

TIAMAT [“Life-Giving Mother”] — The ‘primeval dragon’ in Babylonian archaic epics, often equated with the Sumerian KUR. Later esoteric traditions and texts associate ‘her’ with Yaldabaoth (Ialdabaoth) in Gnostic Hermeticism, or Khornozon (Choronzon) in Enochian Hermeticism. She is equated with the ‘waters’ or the ‘Deep’ in post-Sumerian Semitic scripture (Hebrew: tehom) – the all-encompassing “Sea” that is parted to reveal the first ‘division’ (fragmentation) of “Life” in the Universe. She is paired anthropomorphically with ABZU (the Abyss) as the prehistoric ‘ancestors’ of the Anunnaki race. Her primary literary presence as TIAMAT (or T(I)AMTU) is in the Enuma Elis (Babylonian) ‘Epic of Creation’. In later times, the name is used for the wife of ADAMU (Adam), being the equivalent to the Semitic “Eve” character.

ERESHKIGAL – [“Mistress of the Great Below”] The Queen of the Great Lands in the Sumerian tradition, sister of INANNA-ISHTAR, granddaughter of ENLIL and spouse to NERGAL.

MesopotamianReligionFrontcrop GANZIR — The gatekeeper to the underworld ‘Kingdom of Shadows.’ The ‘Gate of Ganzir’ is often confused with the ‘Gate to the Abyss’ or the ‘Gate to the Outside’, but instead it is a portal into the Anunnaki-controlled Underworld, the ‘Shadowlands’ or twilight world within the domain of ERESHKIGAL, who rules this ‘land of the dead’. Quoting a modern grimoire of Babylonian occultism, the “necromantic art, by which is it desirous to speak with the phantom of someone dead, and perhaps dwelling in the ABSU [Abyss], and thereby a servant of ERESHKIGAL… it is no less than the opening of the Gate of Ganzir.”

GIBIL [“He Who Has Fire”] — The companion of the flame, a descendent of ENKI who uses fire to conduct alchemy and other feats of “fire power.”

GIRRA — The “servant”, “power” or “fire” of the ‘great god’; the Sumerian fire-god or essence or force of a fire-god named GIBIL.

INANNA {15} [“Lady of Heaven”] — The Sumerian goddess of “passion”, both ‘love’ and ‘war’, and patron of URUK, begot by NANNA and NINGAL; originally betrothed to MARDUK, she then changes her consort choice to DUMUZI. Her prowess and determination secured her a place in all ancient pantheons; being the “Goddess of One-Thousand Names,” titled ISHTAR in Babylon. INANNA (ISHTAR) is the spirit of Venus, whose day is Friday and with an essence found in copper. Her colors are green and white, significant to her domain of fertility and growth. She offers her magicians the skills in love and visions of beauty.

MARDUK {10/(50)} [“Son of God”] The supreme champion of the IGIGI during pre-Sumerian times of the Anunnaki; heir-son of ENKI, he becomes the patron of Babylon and the ‘Mardukite‘ tradition reigning for the Age of Aries in Mesopotamia. All tablet cycles making reference to MARDUK are purely Babylonian or from a direct later source – as he does not appear in any significant pre-Babylonian cuneiform tablet cycles yet unearthed. When mentioned briefly as the son of ENKI, working in Eridu, he is named ASARLUHI, becoming the patron Anunnaki “deity” of magic or ‘Master of Magicians’ after having inherited the craft from his father. The blatant industrious and expansive power represented by MARDUK in his ascent up the pantheon (as observed in Babylon) is typified by the planet Jupiter (ENLIL, by Sumerian standards). His color is purple.

NABU {12} [“Prophet”] — The official post-Sumerian secretary of the Anunnaki, part-divine earth born heir-son of MARDUK and messenger-herald and spokesperson of the ‘Mardukite’ tradition, the national cult of Babylon devised by NABU who assisted his father in the redevelopment of the Anunnaki paradigm (as seen in the ‘Mardukite‘ religion of Babylon replacing the previously observed ‘Enlilite’ world order of the Sumerians). Creating the concept of ‘history’ and ‘propaganda’, NABU gives the ‘stylus’ to humanity (and launches a group of scribe-priests (specially taught writing and rhetoric) to catalog the natures, identities, history and decrees (decisions) of the Anunnaki Assembly (gods) and their relationship with each other and the human (“mortal”) world, thereby creating not only the first public ‘religion’, but the first ‘mythology’ (a religion rooted in literary and oral legacies of human relationships and encounters with the divine) and the systems that were able to later result (most of which are still functioning as part of ‘normal’ everyday life in contemporary society). NABU is the archetypal ‘High Priest’ (ENSAG) of the first religion (dedicated to MARDUK) and practiced by priests who preserve the craft of ENKI in Eridu with science and ‘magic’ of the gods to power and sustain the prosperous longevity of Babylon.

ADAD {10} The youngest son of ENLIL that becomes the national patron deity to the Hittites (called HADAD or TESHUB); possibly also recognized as BAAL HADAD in an Hittite version of the Supernal Trinity that is elevated to a chief god position in the same manner that MARDUK is raised in Babylon. As a storm god in the Anunnaki pantheon, ADAD is represented by thunder, lightning and torrents. According to the Hittite succession, hierarchical kingship passes from ALALU to ANU to KUMARBI (ENLIL) and the BA’AL HADAD (TESHUB). In the Enki’ite (Mardukite) Babylonian system he is named ISHKUR and granted the position of “Inspector of the Cosmos” by ENKI.

Gates3rdEdfrontcropMINI ALALU [“Father of the Gods”] — The figure maintaining ‘kingship’ in the ‘heavens’ prior to ANU. An ancient Hittite (Hurrian) tablet cycle titled ALALU & ANU or “Kingship in Heaven” describes the conflict between the two for the seat of ‘kingship’ in the ‘heavens’. According to the Tablet-K series in Liber N, reprinted in the Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible or Necronomicon Anunnaki Legacy (Silver Edition) explains: Formerly in the Ancient of Days, ALULU was reigning in heaven; and for nine sars did he rule the skies, but not well did he reign. Then in the ninth sar of his reign, ANU defeated ALULU. ALULU descended from heaven and ruled the dark-hued earth. ANU gave fight and defeated ALULU and kingship was lowered from heaven to earth by decree of ANU.

ANTU {55} [“Life of Heaven”] — The official half-sister (by a different mother) and spouse (consort) of ANU. ANTU and ANU beget ENLIL. In archaic pre-Sumerian lore, ANTU is espoused to the archaic AN.

cuneisdgsdg ANU {60} [“Heavenly One”] — In the Sumerian Anunnaki pantheon, ANU is the supreme “All-Father” of the pantheon; father to ENLIL by official spouse ANTU, and the father of ENKI & NINHURSAG (by other wives). Called AN in pre-Babylonian times and ANU by the Babylonians, a being whose family resides on, or emerged from the ‘place of crossings’ (Nibiru). Few of the incantation tablets (or ‘prayers’) invoke the powers of ANU directly, since the “heavenly force” was perceived as too vast to be channeled in its raw state – and to degrade it to anything more accessible would be to compromise the nature of what is being represented by this figure.

ANZU [“Knower of Heaven”] — An obscure bird-like beast/monster of an unclear nature. The ANZU or ZU usually refers to a “heavenly bird” or thunderbird that appears in an archaic tablet cycle stealing the ‘Tablets of Destiny” from ENLIL, disrupting the DUR-AN-KI (‘Bond-Heaven-Earth’) “stargate.” It is possible that this half-man, half-bird, sometimes called AZAG, was a genetically engineered storm-god or artificially intelligent messenger being of ENLIL that turned “evil.”

ARURU — The sister of ENLIL, alias NINTU, who is the Babylonian title for the ‘mother-goddess’ known in Sumerian as NINMAH or NINHURSAG. In the Babylonian ethnocentric epics, she assists MARDUK in creating the human race (or ‘Race of Marduk’), however, in the Enuma Elis, it is the “blood” of KINGU that is used. Other Sumerian versions say the “blood” or “essence” of some other ‘slain’ god is used for this.

AYA [“Dawn”] — The official spouse (consort) of SAMAS in Akkadian; named SHERIDA in Sumerian.
