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.”

Mardukite 10-Year Anniversary Celebrated with Legendary Books and Tomes of Magick by Joshua Free


FOR TEN YEARS the “Mardukite Truth Seeker Press” has delivered an aggressively refined methodology for the new ‘NexGen’ breed of eclectic esoteric seekers as “Mardukite Babylonians” — reviving the banner name of the first spiritual and political rebels in history, those who rose up against the Enlilite Sumerians in seemingly prehistoric Babylon, but in fact they are the times that literally defined history, the oldest true writing system (cuneiform) and systems of human civilization that have grown and advanced since then but are very much present among us today.

Modern “Mardukite Babylonians” study the nature of these things among many other aspects of magic, mysticism and metaphysics (beyond the realm of Mesopotamia and Ancient Near East) with the MARDUKITE.COM and NECROGATE.COM sites dedicated to publications of “Mardukite Truth Seeker Press” celebrating the incredible underground literary work and prolific prodigious contributions of Joshua Free (also known as “Merlyn Stone” in the 1990’s). Since childhood, Joshua Free has dedicated his entire life to the archetype of legendary books and tomes of magick – those such as the Necronomicon and Book of Pheryllt.

After being received into the library and self-made traditions of hundreds and even thousands of mystical, metaphysical and “New Age” practitioners since the mid-1990’s – writing under the name of “Merlyn Stone” for such popular underground publications as THE SORCERER’S HANDBOOK (now available in a commemorative 20th Anniversary) – Joshua Free is most famous for the inception of the modern “Mardukite” movement with the release of ARCANUM: THE GREAT MAGICAL ARCANUM on the Summer Solstice (June 21) 2008 (now observing its 10th Anniversary).

The Mesopotamian-oriented faction of active researchers and esoteric mystical practitioners known as the “Mardukite Chamberlains” was later solidified with the original volume of the ‘Mardukite Core’, best known as the NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE (edited by Joshua Free). [Other anthologies edited by Joshua Free for the ‘Mardukite Core’ include “Gates of the Necronomicon,” “Necronomicon Grimoire,” “History of the Necronomicon” and “Secrets of Sumerian Language.”]

Coinciding with the 10th Anniversary of the “Mardukite” tradition is the early-release of the 10th Anniversary (Seventh Edition) of Joshua Free’s complete NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE tablet anthology – inspired by the aura of what it is named for, but wholly based in historical records that completed work that former manifestations only seemed to allude to (in the Mesopotamian context). For example, previous serious practitioners realized the Simon recension was incomplete at best, alluding not to the Enlilite traditions common to the “Sumerians,” but rather to the “Mardukite” tradition raised by ancient Babylonians in honor of Marduk, firstborn son of Enki, ruler of men and gods from his shrine-temple ziggurat in Babylon, the Tower of Babel.

The range of work by “Mardukite Chamberlains” leading up to the NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE included lengthy discourses with other researchers, unceasing hours in abandoned corners of old libraries and museums, participation in sessions with other practicing occultists and even visits to “artifact rooms” and “tablet collections” at the University of Pennsylvania and Chicago among others, including the library and museum at Rosicrucian Park.

The resulting culmination became nothing like anyone expected: an authentic and verifiable vision for the “Mesopotamian Necronomicon” salvaged from the shifting desert sands of time in the Middle East and Egypt, unparalleled by anything already available to Truth Seekers. It appeared to be the most complete collection of ancient writings on the planet that formed the very foundation of all the human traditions and beliefs that would emerge thereafter. “Mardukite Truth Seeker Press” spent 2009 through 2012 dedicated to perfection and enhancement of NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE materials, newly revised and updated for the 10th Anniversary Seventh Edition to be the most accessible, complete and economical edition in the history of the modern “Mardukite” legacy.

This famous “Mardukite” version of the NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE edited by Joshua Free, is not Lovecraftian or Simonian (while it could possibly serve to offer validity to proponent materials from both sources for those who seek it), neither is it “dangerous” or a “hoax” (though those who fear the revelation of these truths for the world will think it the former and label it the later). Thousands of people have now discovered that Joshua Free’s NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE is the single most ancient and pure unaltered lore concerning the hottest topics of our time and all times, including divinity, creation, human origins, aliens, religion, pantheistic magickal traditions, alternate dimensions, portals and the afterlife. He explains: – “In this new millennium of uncertainties, it is most likely that the uncovering of the past will reveal our future.”

Merlyn Stone
(Joshua Free)

Although now best known for his work on Sumerians, the Anunnaki and Babylonian Tradition for the “Mardukites,“ work and involvement by Joshua Free with the Secret Dragon (Elven) Legacy and modern Pheryllt Druid Tradition is also paramount. In addition to his own collected works anthology — THE DRUID COMPLEAT comprised of “Book of Elven-Faerie,” “Draconomicon” and “Book of Druidry” — his writing has even been used within the third volume completing the classic bestselling ‘Merlyn Trilogy’ by Douglas Monroe: THE DEEPTEACHINGS OF MERLYN published by Kima Global Books in 2011. Kima has also agreed to publish Joshua Free’s forthcoming BOOK OF PHERYLLT ‘Druid Source Book’ anthology later this year, further making our Anniversary year truly a pivotal year indeed!

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.
