MASTERING MESOPOTAMIAN MYTHOLOGY
A Brief Anunnaki A-to-Z Directory (Study Guide) – PART FIVE
edited by Joshua Free for Liber-52

[See necrogate.com for PART FOUR]

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.

Marduk, Anunnaki god of Babylon, Son of Enki, Father of Nabu in Mardukite Tradition

mesopotamianmagicheadline

MARDUK — “The blatant industrious and expansive power of Jupiter has been placed at the height of most ‘Sky God’ Olympian pantheons as Zeus or a similar figure. The name (Jupiter) comes from the Romans: Dys Pater, meaning Father-God. This energetic current commands outright worldly success as well as the magic of spirits: command of the hierarchies…

BabylonianMagickCSpbCVRcrop This portion of the mardukite.com blog post is extracted from the “Book of Marduk by Nabu” (Liber W) also available in the recent commemorative “Babylonian Magick” anthology by Joshua Free.

NABU SPEAKS: “The Elder Gods originally attributed this position to Enlil in Sumer. I personally heralded my father, Marduk, into Enlilship of the “younger pantheon” in Babylon. Our tradition there, and in Egypt, was wholly based on him being the centralized figure. You may invoke my father for his strength and power, as well as a petitioner to the Elder Gods. He is exalted as the Master of Magicians, carrying the mysteries of my grandfather, Enki, to Babylon, and bestowing the traditions upon me to relay.” (Liber W)

bookofmardukthumb “The original designation of Jupiter is 50, the number attributed first to Enlil and later to Marduk by the Babylonians, who first was given the number 10. The color of the 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.” (Liber W)

“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)

MesopotamianReligionFrontcrop 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” give some background to Marduk’s esteem. (Liber 50)

[The remainder of this mardukite.com blog post is extracted from a New Babylon Rising article derived from Liber 50 – now available in the new edition of Mesopotamian Religion by Joshua Free.]

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 (interpretation) of gods – the Egyptian Pantheon – as “Amon-Ra,” [and possibly also Horus] again identifying himself with the “solar” current.

cuneisdgsdg Marduk’s decision 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).

THE RACE OF MARDUK…

Naturally, the other Anunnaki were less than appreciative of Marduk’s desire to rule over them, although the Age of Aries, his sign, did come and go and he was not left to his own in Babylon (or in Egypt). This seems to have been a disciplinarian act by the other gods.

babel98769878 Assuming the most common interpretation, Marduk was to lose rights of kingship “in heaven” for the taking of a “human” wife instead of his betrothed half-sister Inanna Ishtar. His argument was that Sarpanit (his consort) was a descendent of Adapa [see the Necronomicon Anunnaki
Bible
], and thus of Anunnaki bloodline; that Ishtar was no more interested in the union than he was, and it had not affected her rise to power; and finally, if not “in heaven,” why not “on earth”? The resulting catastrophes in the Middle East are evidence enough that this betrothal did not occur peacefully.

A MARDUKITE LEGACY BORN

In Assyrian accounts, Marduk, as the great “father-god” Assur or Ashur [“Ashshur”], seems to emerge as if from nowhere, leading some scholars in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s to consider the idea of Marduk being a fictitious figure imagined into being for purely political reasons.

Sarpanit [also Sarapan or Zarpanitu] is mentioned often in Babylonian prayer but does not appear in any of the significant mythic tablet cycles. She achieves an elevated status by her relationship with Marduk, and together, they are the parents of Nabu. At the spring equinox “A.KI.TI” festival she is the “spring-maiden” of fertility festivals in Babylon…

REDISCOVER THE BABYLONIAN ANUNNAKI LEGACY TODAY WITH THE WORK OF THE MARDUKITE CHAMBERLAINS!

New Babylon – New World, Mardukites Honor the Anunnaki Legacy of Modern Nabu Joshua Free

Borsippa2b2

“Look at things from the point of view of the Sun.”
– A. Crowley

The Modern NABU and the Mardukite movement as a whole, is indeed the continuation of the efforts made in Egypt and Babylon by Ancient NABU – and attempting to fix what went wrong. What we still seek today is actually the same goal that MARDUK himself sought to accomplish in Babylon – the return of all religious worship to the true Source, the All, that which exists outside the Realm of any perceived “gods” of antiquity, as realized in complete self-honesty.

nabuspeaksthumb [This mardukite.com blog post is extracted from the foreword by Sortileges, the Mardukite Chamberlains Arch-Bishop of the Canadian Diocese, as it appeared in the original Liber-12 disclosure: NABU SPEAKS: AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF AN ALIEN MESSENGER (by Joshua Free).]

This main tenet of this goal alone is quite different than other modern approaches and otherwise “occult” organizations, which really only play the game of politics with their spirituality, and are so arrogantly “right” that they fail to see reality. Mardukites, on the other hand, aren’t concerned with what’s “right” or “good” by human standards – words that have actually caused more pain and death on earth than you might think. We are self-honest spirits caring for the future of the living race, the Children of Light. Simply put – we are replacing the program of the ancient human being that Ancient NABU had set with a brand new, self-honest, one for the “true” New Age.

lapis lazuli cloak 1 In my opinion, especially to newcomers to the Mardukite literature, the only self-honest way to begin questioning (or understanding) who (or what) NABU is, requires simply to analyze the following passage from Tablet A.

NABU,
Royal Son of MARDUK and SARPANIT,
Firstborn heir to MARDUK,
Given the secrets of Writing and Wisdom.
He is the messenger [Mercurios] of MARDUK
And organizer of the Mardukite Tribe,
Counselor to… the prophets of Marduk,
Brother to SATU, whom the Egyptian named SETH,
NABU is the vizier of MARDUK on Earth.
As heir to MARDUK, the ANUNNAKI gave him,
The numerical designation of 12.

cuneisdgsdg After becoming more involved with the Mardukites it seemed, at least to me, that it better described Joshua Free, the Modern NABU, the hybrid messenger, far more than the abstract archetypes and “godforms” that came to be interpreted from these ancient mysteries. For me, it is all quite self-explanatory. That NABU is an alien messenger or a human freak is actually of little consequence in the end, because it is not the messenger, but the message that is important.

…And yet.

My own experience and resulting opinion is that NABU is the only modern “occult leader” who has not become eaten by his ego – and this should be quite evident to anyone who has ever worked with him for the last few years he has been public. He has demonstrated how politics in the Mardukite movement was, is and will always be kept to a strict minimum, and only when it arises as a self-honest necessity in bringing the work to society that these matters are dealt with at all. This is very different from other modern “New Age” or “esoteric” movements that I have had contact with – where only self-delusion and ego-masturbation prevailed.

MesopotamianReligionFrontcrop Concerning myself, all I will say is that the teachings, writings and friendship of NABU have allowed me to not only have a completely new outlook on life, but also a very real self-honest new experience of the Universe – a true and definite paradigm shift. The Anunnaki Legacy we have spent several years putting into print contains answers to every question that has haunted humanity since as long as it can remember in ages past; Systemology offers a new hope for the future.

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.”
