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.”

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!

SUMERIANS, BABYLONIANS & ANUNNAKI GODS OF ANCIENT MESOPOTAMIAN RELIGION

Secrets of the Anunnaki & The Origins of Babylon

RETURN TO THE SOURCE — to traditions and spirito-mystical systems of the Middle East, those born from ancient Sumerians and afterward extended to interpretation by Chaldeo-Babylonians, Akkadians, Assyrians and even Egyptians. The spread of this tradition across Europe led to even more fanciful and colorful realizations of the primary Olympian mythology first realized in ancient Mesopotamia!

Discover the secrets for yourself in SUMERIAN RELIGION by Joshua Free — The most critically acclaimed and bestselling materials from the Mardukite Research Organization now available in one volume! A master compilation of mythological and religious exploration into the heart of ancient Mesopotamian Mysteries, this easy-to-read post-modern anthology illuminates the ancient world using revolutionary teachings and source materials in a way never before seen… for thousands of years!

The nature, identity and relationship of ancient Mesopotamian Anunnaki “gods” – those of the Sumerians and Babylonians – is very important, not only for understanding the literally ‘Mardukite’ work, but also for possessing a greater ‘wideangle’ vision of life, reality and existence – not to mention understanding your own place and legacy within it.

All of the original and later work of the ‘Mardukites’, all of these other authors and producers and their theories and explanations of things past, present and even future – they are all dependent on a clear and concise basis of understanding and comprehension of the very root element that it all surrounds – the very beings that made all of this history and human development possible. For without this key knowledge, and an objective one-to-one correlation of this knowledge with reality, all of the other research, reading and even the experience of life and reality will be undertaken ‘out of context’ of what is Truth.

The meaning and innate desire to pursue truth, particularly what has been known as the Secret of the Ages, is no less obvious in the realm of science and academia then it is in the world of the occultist. Those who have been dubbed ‘occultists’ or ‘esotericists’ are not the only ones interested in SUMERIAN RELIGION, nor are they even the original ones. Only the methodologies and intentions differ. And yet again – all is connected.

The recovery of the truth of mankind’s past is paramount to the fate of humanity’s future. Thus, it should could by no surprise that the geographic terrain of its origins has been the victim of unyielding war and suffering for thousands of years – further enshrouding those unveiling efforts with a measure of hesitation and doubt painted by political opinions of the modern Middle East, and for our purposes, what the academicians have called the Ancient Near East. Relative power within the modern world and human society is a ‘fleeting glamour’ and wholly representative; yet, if anything on the planet can be said to represent ineffable true worldly power by the ‘sword’ and ‘shield’ of truth, it is from those objects of ancient knowledge that come to us from this place.

SUMERIAN RELIGION by Joshua Free : Arriving on the surface world from the underground – an amazing insight into the Anunnaki ‘alien gods’ and the establishment of human civilization famously accounted by the Sumerian and Babylonian traditions. 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. SUMERIAN RELIGION is not merely the presentation of dry academic renderings of obscure tablets; this book will take you on a progressive journey that is just as relevant and critical today as it was thousands of years ago! Uncover the mysteries that lay hidden in ancient Sumer, with a message so relevant today, it is no wonder it became the greatest kept secret of Babylon!

CROSSING TO THE ABYSS — Secrets of the Simon Necronomicon Revealed by Mardukite Nabu Joshua Free

anecrogate-banner

Shrouded in doom and gloom, contrasted against the “Cthulhu Mythos” envisioned by H.P. Lovecraft, who very well may have developed the title — Necronomicon — for his own saga and literary cycle, the book presented by editor Simon is anything but a fabrication of fantasy, but is instead an allusion to a very real, though fragmented, “Mardukite” Babylonian Anunnaki Tradition, a system that once dominated the prehistoric and ancient world before the rise of the Greeks, Romans and even Egyptians!

crossingabyss2017fullcvrcropsml Originally published by the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press for the Year-4 literary cycle in February 2012 — and appearing as both “Stargate to the Abyss” and “Necronomicon For Beginners” — Joshua Free’s underground occult classic Liber-555 celebrates its Fifth Anniversary in the new eco-edition of CROSSING TO THE ABYSS: UNVEILING THE SECRETS OF THE SIMON NECRONOMICON!

Given the extent of my involvement in matters concerning the Necronomicon for twenty years, it should not be surprising to find that I am now being called out from the dark corners I am usually want to residing in regarding the topic of the “Simonian” recension of the Necronomicon that has earned so much notoriety and publicity since its arrival in the underground during the late 1970’s,” explains Joshua Free in the introduction to Liber-555.

The Simon Necronomicon is a delicate topic for me, and so it has been a long time coming for me to actually give attention to answering others towards its details. In the past, I have directly avoided such a feat, preferring the work to stand on its own to those culled into its mystique, hardly able to be overshadowed by the efforts of other writers and occultists that have made a system to their own preferences, lending a healthy hand to supporting the allusions made in the fiction writing of H.P. Lovecraft and the later inspired Cthulhu Mythos – connected to our own efforts purely for the fact that the title Necronomicon is shared and perhaps even derived from the Lovecraftian sources.

elderquasipentadf Since being released in 1977 — the same year that the world saw the arrival of “Star Wars”, the “Shannara” series of Terry Brooks, “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”, the “12th Planet” debut by Zecharia Sitchin and many other consciousness paradigm-shifts — the Necronomicon by Simon has changed the shape of the modern “New Age” movement and human understanding, introducing over a million people of the new generations to the reality of the Anunnaki traditions born from ancient Sumerians, Babylonians, Akkadians, Assyrians and Chaldeans of Mesopotamia. Many of these mysteries are also explored on our alternate site: NECROGATE.COM

Mardukite founder Joshua Free continues: “What has drawn in the connection between Simon’s Necronomicon and our own work is the underlying resonance of the original ‘Mardukite Anunnaki Tradition’ from Babylon that appears in “his” grimoire far stronger than any Lovecraftian flavors or the Cthulhu Mythos – and it is for this reason that it has been so often paralleled with the modern “Mardukite” efforts.

Someone approaching the Simon Necronomicon without any previous occult knowledge may be confused as to its ‘magickal’ and ‘esoteric’ suggestions for ritual and ceremony, and yet the ‘heart’ of the material will still seep in and formulate some kind of change in the reader – especially if the lack of previous ‘occult’ knowledge is being coupled with no background in ancient ‘Middle Eastern’ or otherwise ‘Mesopotamian’ cultures and mythologies. If such is the case, the book will be naturally regarded as a highly cryptic or otherwise ‘incoherent’ blend of names and correspondences that are without basis.

My own personal interests in the Simon Necronomicon have always – for twenty years now personally – remained fixed on its connection to ancient “Mardukite” Anunnaki-oriented systems. Similarly, the book has actually served as a ‘portal’ or ‘gateway’ in and of itself to many of its readers into this ‘lost’ and ‘forbidding’ pursuit of intellectual academia and occult esoterica; people who would otherwise have had no real familiarity with ‘Babylonian Gates’ and ‘Anunnaki Gods’ later reminisce that the Simon Necronomicon was their own introduction to topics.”

crossingabyss2017fullcvrcropsml The modern “Mardukite” research organization has spent nearly half a decade exploring the mysteries of Mesopotamia, the Anunnaki and related subjects. After having completed the entire NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI LEGACY with the Mardukite Chamberlains, prolific writer, editor and founder of the “Mardukites,” JOSHUA FREE, ends his years of silence concerning the Simon Necronomicon by finally providing his expert commentary on the classic text in Liber 555, “Crossing to the Abyss: The Mardukite Guide to the Simon Necronomicon.”

ANGELS & DEMONS of the New World Order – A New Vision of Enochian Magic & Kabbalah (with Joshua Free)

enochian-banner

“Wholeness comes from repairing the ‘fractured cracks’ of our understanding so that we might be ‘view’ and ‘experience’ reality with ‘clear’ and ‘self-honest’ eyes. Judging by the sheer number of literary works, organizations and even less organized members of the community still flock to these methods and practices for a means to ‘ascension’ or ‘enlightenment’ during this lifetime. The truth is… Many people, even among today’s ‘New Agers’ are still lacking in the appropriate knowledge to carry themselves along these paths and have them be ‘realized’ to their truest or fullest extent.”
–Joshua Free in Enochian Magic & Kabbalah

enochianmagic2017cropsmall For the first time in modern history, the true origins of Judaic Mysticism (the Kabbalah), Christian spiritual beliefs and other derived practices of ceremonial magic (such as the Enochian system, Hermetics and Golden Dawn methods) can now be traced directly to the archetypal ‘Sky-God’ traditions of the prehistoric Mesopotamia: The post-Sumerian Babylonian “Star-Gate” system dedicated to the Anunnaki.

ENOCHIAN MAGIC & KABBALAH: Summoning Angels, Aliens, UFOs and Other Divine Encounters (by Joshua Free) celebrates its 5th Anniversary with a new second edition!

The modern contemporary outlook on the ‘alien’ or ‘extraterrestrial’ and ‘inter-dimensional’ source behind these many experience is what ties it together. So long as people have been forced into a paradigm where the spiritual and mystical encounters of the past are made to look ‘ridiculous’, without basis and a fantasy-legend to tell our children to get them to sleep, no real ‘advancement’ can be made on the understanding and practical incorporation of these mysteries into everyday life. For this reason, the more ‘orthodox’ and ‘static’ systems of religion and spirituality that have dominated the Piscean Age are seeing a decline in membership and true practitioners for the simple fact that we are realizing more and more just how ‘fragmented’ they have actually become. And since we do not see the ‘greater systems’ bending at all to the new realizations available, it is us who must do the changing and usher in a new and authentic ‘paradigm shift’, which is what this whole “New Age” (Aquarian) is supposed to be about in the first place.

1001015_318340804969022_2026839541_n In Enochian Magic & Kabbalah, prolific occult writer, Joshua Free, brings together what is known of the ancient “Ladder of Lights”, the BAB.ILI system that constitutes the original “Tree of Life” ‘kabbalah’ found graphically present on ancient renderings and its connections to the later Judeo-Christian traditions and the evolution of human understanding of “Anunnaki”, “Igigi” and other sky-beings into the Hebrew renderings of the “Nephilim”, “Anakim”, “Elohim” and the like.

While new technological advancements bring no shortage to the intellectual Ego of the human mind, the entire purpose of existence, the source of the human species and the knowledge and paths that brought us to where we are now, have all been left behind, swept under a rug or otherwise been ‘concealed’ from the ‘commonplace reality’ of contemporary life. Assuming things were to remain so, the human race would be successful in only destroying themselves and leaving a huge mark on the planet in its wake – change must come, for the alternative is annihilation.

enochianmagic2017cropsmall Reexamination of the most ancient tablet renderings of the Anunnaki and the way in which they had initially developed among the local populations (to Mesopotamia) thousands of years ago should help to shed new light on the history of human civilization, the development of its cultural and religious beliefs and the way in which this interaction between people and god has affected their lives.

Today, in spite of the ‘normalcy’ attached to orthodox religions, humans live and act as a godless people, with no fear of someone watching over them in addition to being simply content with operating the program as they have been given it.

As the ‘next generation’ rises into maturity, understanding and power, we believe that these things will change; that new eyes and new vision will bring a New Babylon – a new world – to the planet and new evolutionary potential for the life living upon it!

enochian-banner

ENOCHIAN MAGIC & THE KABBALAH illustrates the singular origin of the mystical and spiritual traditions on the planet, all directed toward a human relationship with the “Divine“, however that might be viewed — angels, elementals, fairies, gods or other ‘alien’ beings — and more importantly, the methods by which they have been attracted into one’s life.

Since all of our available traditions today seem linked to these antiquated ‘Divine Encounters’, it seems fitting to make a self-honest exploration of the nature of these origins of belief and how they may affect our abilities to perceive the world and affect reality today.

Kings, Queens & Sister-Wives: Sex and Mating Habits of Anunnaki Gods | Divine Right & Royal Dynasties

anunnakichildBannr

Absent from the early editions of the Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible, the Tablet-U Series (“Book of the Underworld“) was not available until 2011 in Liber-C, originally distributed as Beyond the Ishtar Gate, appearing also in Necronomicon Spellbook III released first to the Mardukite Chamberlains (Mardukite Research Organization). Liber-C is also published in the Year-3 Mardukite Anthology Necronomicon Grimoire (formerly Necronomicon Workbook); the Tablet-U Series appears in the final edition of the Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible (the core volume of research).

Dynamics of this series — mainly sexual practices and mating customs of the Anunnaki hierarchy — were catalogued, instructed to and adopted by demigods and Dragon Courts of Kings and Queens. These dynamics are concisely explained by the late Zecharia Sitchin in End of Days.

beyondishtarfrontimg “The key to unlocking the mystery of the gods’ succession (and marriage) — realizing that these rules also applied to the people chosen by them [Enlil] to serve as their proxies to Mankind. In the biblical tale of the Patriarch Abraham explaining his sister-wife in Genesis: ‘Indeed, she is my sister, the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother, and she became my wife.’ Not only was marrying a half-sister from a different mother permitted, but a son by her — in this case Isaac — became the Legal Heir and dynastic successor, rather than the Firstborn Ishmael, son of the handmaiden Hagar.

“Though those succession rules appear complex, they were based on ‘Bloodlines‘ — what we now recognize as sophisticated DNA genealogies that also distinguished between general DNA inherited from the parents as well as the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) that is inherited by females only from their mother. Dynastic lines continue through the male line; the Firstborn son is next in succession; a half-sister could be taken as wife if she had a different mother; and if a son by such a half-sister is later born, that son — though not the Firstborn — becomes the Legal Heir and the dynastic successor.

“The rivalry between the two half-brothers Ea/Enki (Firstborn of Anu, but not be his official spouse, Antu) and Enlil in matters of the throne was complicated by personal rivalry in matters of the heart. They both coveted their half-sister Ninmah, whose mother was yet another concubine of Anu. She was Ea/Enki‘s true love, but he was not permitted to marry her. Enlil had a son by her — Ninurta. Though born without wedlock, the succession rules made Ninurta uncontested heir of Enlil, being both a Firstborn son and one born by a royal half-sister…”

Zecharia Sitchin


1001015_318340804969022_2026839541_n The “Descent cycle” of Inanna-Ishtar shows her connection to the “Underworld”, and thereby the “Other”, but it does so for the explicit reasons described in the Tablet-C “Crossings” series, involving her relationship with the Queen of the Underworld, Ereshkigal, her own sister, as well as Ereshkigal‘s surface world Anunnaki consort, Nergal.

NecroBible6ththumb Nergal [ne-uru-gal] is the “lord of the great dwelling” and his wife, Ereshkigal [eres-ki-gal] isa perfect counterpart, being the ‘lady of the great earth’. The cult-center for their tradition worship was the city of Cuth (or Kutha), making the “Man-of-Cuth” literally “Kutu-lu”, CTHULHU, a name which makes frequent appearances in more Necronomical flavored lore related to the Underworld.


LIBER-C, Tablet-U, “The Courtship of Ishtar and Dumuzi”

The brother spoke to his younger sister.
The Sun God, SHAMMASH (UTU), spoke to INANNA-ISHTAR, saying:
“Lady, the flax in its fullness is lovely.
Ishtar, the grain is glistening in the furrow.
I will work the ground for you it for you.
I will bring the grain to you.
But a piece of linen-cloth, big or small, is always needed.
Ishtar, I will bring it to you.”

INANNA-ISHTAR said:
“Brother, after you’ve brought me the flax, Who will comb it for me?”

SHAMMASH (UTU) replied:
“Sister, I will bring it to you combed.”

INANNA-ISHTAR said:
“Utu, after you’ve brought it to me combed, Who will spin it for me?”

And SHAMMASH (UTU) responded:
“Inanna-Ishtar, I will bring it to you spun?”

INANNA-ISHTAR said:
“Brother, after you’ve brought the flax to be spun, Who will braid it for me?”
And SHAMMASH (UTU) responded:
“Sister, I will bring it to you braided.”

INANNA-ISHTAR said:
“Utu, after you’ve brought it to me braided,
Who will weave it for me?”

And SHAMMASH (UTU) replied:
“Sister, I will bring it to you woven.”

INANNA-ISHTAR said:
“Utu, after you’ve brought it to me woven,
Who will bleach it for me?”

And SHAMMASH (UTU) responds:
“Inanna-Ishtar, I will bring it to you bleached.”

Angered now, INANNA-ISHTAR demanded:
“Brother, after you’ve brought my bridal sheet to me,
Who will go to bed with me!?
Who, Utu, who will sleep with me!?”

SHAMMASH (UTU) calmly replied:
“Sister, your bridegroom will go to bed with you.
He who was born from a fertile womb,
He who was conceived on the scared marriage throne,
Dumuzi, the shepherd! He will go to bed with you.”

INANNA-ISHTAR spoke:
“No, brother!
I want the farmer!
He is the man of my heart!
He gathers the grain into great heaps.
He brings the grain regularly into my storehouses.”

SHAMMASH (UTU) said:
“Sister, you should marry the shepherd.
Why are you unwilling?
His cream is good; his milk is good.
Whatever he touches shines brightly.
Inanna-Ishtar, marry Dumuzi.
You who adorn yourself with the agate necklace of fertility alone,
Why are you unwilling?
Dumuzi will share his rich cream with you.
You who are meant to be the kings protector,
Why are you unwilling?”

Still angry, INANNA-ISHTAR the spoke:
“The shepherd?!
I will not marry the shepherd!
His clothes are course; his wool is rough.
I will marry the farmer.
The farmer grows flax for my clothes,
The farmer grows barley for my table.”

Then DUMUZI arrived and said:
“Why do you speak about the farmer?
Why do you speak about him?
If he gives you black flour’
I will give you black wool.
If he gives you white flour,
I will give you white wool.
If he gives you beer,
I will give you sweet milk.
If he gives you bread,
I will give you honey cheese.
I will give the farmer my leftover cream.
I will give the farmer my leftover milk.
Why do you speak about the farmer?
What does he have more than I do?”

Laughing, INANNA-ISHTAR replied:
“Shepherd-boy, without my mother, Ningal, you’d be driven away;
Without my grandmother, Ningikugga, you’d be driven into the Abyss,
Without my father, Nanna, you’d have no roof,
Without my brother Utu-Shammash. . .”

DUMUZI interrupted:
“Inanna, do not start a quarrel with me.
My father, Enki, is as good as your father, Nanna.
My mother, Sirtur, is as good as your mother, Ningal.
My sister, Geshtinanna, is as good as yours, Ereshkigal…
So, Queen of the palace,
let us talk it over, shall we?”

The words they had spoken between them were words of passion and desire.
From the starting of the heated quarrel came the lovers desire for each other.
DUMUZI, The Shepherd, went to the royal house with cream.
He went to the royal house with milk.
Before the door, he called out:
“Open the house, My Lady, open the house!”

INANNA-ISHTAR ran to the arms of NINGAL, her mother.

NINGAL counseled her daughter, saying:
“My child, this young man will be your father.
My daughter, this young man will be your mother.
He will treat you like a father.
He will care for you like a mother. “

Still DUMUZI called:
“Open the house, My Lady, open the house!”

INANNA-ISHTAR, at her mothers command,
Bathed and anointed herself with scented oil.
She covered her body with the royal white robe.
She readied her dowry.
She arranged her precious lapis lazuli beads around her neck.
She took her seal in her hand.

DUMUZI waited expectantly.
INANNA-ISHTAR opened the door for him.
Inside the house she shined before him.
Like the light of the moon.
DUMUZI looked at her joyously.
He pressed his neck close against hers.
He kissed her.

INANNA-ISHTAR then said:
“What I tell you
Let the singer weave into song.
What I tell you,
Let it flow from ear to mouth,
Let it pass from old to young:
My vulva, the horn,
Is The Boat of Heaven,
Is full of eagerness like the new moon.
Who will plow my vulva?
Who will plow my high field?
Who will plow my wet ground?
I am a young beautiful woman;
Who will plow my vulva!?
Who will station the ox there!?
Who will plow my vulva!?”

DUMUZI smiled and said:
“Great Lady, the king will plow your vulva!
I, Dumuzi the King, will plow your vulva.”

INANNA-ISHTAR screamed:
“Then plow my vulva, man of my heart!
Plow my vulva!
Do it now!”

When after the king’s lap stood the rising cedar.
Plants grew high by their side.
Grains grew high by their side.
Gardens flourished luxuriantly.

INANNA-ISHTAR sang in delight:
“He has sprouted;
He is fertile growth planted by the water.
He is the one my womb loves best.
My well-stocked garden in the plains,
My barley growing high in its furrow,
My apple tree which bears fruit up to its crown,
He is fertile growth planted by the water.
My honey-man, my honey-man sweetens me always.
My lord, the honey-man of the gods,
He is the one my womb loves best.
His hand is honey, his foot is honey,
He sweetens me always.
My eager man who caresses my navel,
My man who caresses my soft thighs,
He is the one my womb loves best.
O, how I love him!
He is my fertile growth planted by the water.”

And DUMUZI sang:
“O Great Lady, your breast is your field.
Inanna-Ishtar, your breast is your field.
Your broad field pours out the plants.
Your broad field pours out grain.
Water flows from on high for your servant.
Bread flows from on high for your servant.
Pour it out for me, Inanna-Ishtar.
I will drink all you offer.”

INANNA-ISHTAR said passionately:
“Make your milk sweet and thick for me, my bridegroom.
My shepherd, I will drink your fresh milk.
My wild bull, Dumuzi, make your milk sweet and thick.
I will drink your fresh milk.
Let the milk of the goat flow in my sheepfold.
Fill my holy churn with honey cheese.
Lord Dumuzi, I will drink your fresh milk.
My husband, I will guard my sheepfold for you.
I will watch over your house of life, the storehouse,
The shining quivering place which delights;
The house which decides the fates of the land,
The house which gives the breath of life to the people.
I, the queen of the palace, will watch over your house.”

DUMUZI spoke:
“My sister, I would go with you to my garden.
Inanna, I would go with you to my garden.
I would go with you to my orchard.
I would go with you to my apple tree.
There I would plant the sweet, honey-covered seed.”

INANNA sang:
“He brought me into his garden.
My brother, Dumuzi, brought me into his garden.
I strolled with him among the standing trees,
I stood with him among the fallen trees,
By the apple tree I knelt as is proper.
Before my brother coming in song,
Who rose to me out of poplar leaves,
Who came to me in the midday heat,
before my lord, Dumuzi,
I poured out plants from my womb.
I placed plants before him,
I poured out plants before him.
I placed grain before him,
I poured out grain before him,
I poured out grain before my womb.”

She sang louder:
“Last night as I, the Queen, was shining bright,
Last night as I, the Queen of Heaven, was shining bright,
As I was shining bright and dancing,
Singing praises at the coming of the night;
He met me! He met me!
My lord Dumuzi met me!
He pushed his hand to my hand.
He pressed his neck close against mine.
My high priest is ready for the holy loins.
My lord Dumuzi is ready for the holy loins.
The plants and herbs in his field are ripe.
O Dumuzi! You fullness is my delight!”

She called for it, she called for it, she called for the bed!
She called for the bed that rejoices the heart.
She called for the bed that sweetens the loins.
She called for the bed of kingship.
She called for the bed of queenship.

INANNA-ISHTAR called for the bed:
“Let the bed that rejoices the heart be prepared!
Let the bed that sweetens the lions be prepared!
Let the bed of kingship be prepared!
Let the bed of queenship be prepared!
Let the royal bed be prepared!”

She spread the bridal sheet across the bed.
She called to the king:
“The bed is ready!”
She called to her bridegroom:
“The bed is waiting!”
He put his hand in her hand.
He put his hand to her heart.
Sweet is the sleep of the hand-to-hand.
Sweeter still is the sleep of heart-to-heart.

INANNA-ISHTAR said:
“I bathed for the wild bull,
I bathed for the shepherd Dumuzi,
I perfumed my sides with ointment,
I coated my mouth with sweet-smelling amber,
I painted my eyes with coal.
He shaped my loins with his fair hands.
The Shepherd, Dumuzi filled my lap with cream and milk,
He stroked my pubic hair,
He watered my womb.
He laid his hands on my holy vulva,
He smoothed my black boat with cream,
He quickened my narrow boat with milk,
He creased me on the bed.
Now I will caress my high priest on the bed,
I will caress the faithful shepherd Dumuzi,
I will caress his loins, the shepherdship of the land,
I will decree a sweet fate for him.”
