MASTERING MESOPOTAMIAN MYTHOLOGY
A Brief Anunnaki A-to-Z Directory (Study Guide) – PART FIVE

[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.

Mesopotamian Magic, Rites and Rituals of Eridu, Sumerian Anunnaki in Babylonian System

mesopotamianmagicheadline

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…
~ NABU, Joshua Free, The Book of Marduk by Nabu (2010)

Gates3rdEdfrontcropMINI This mardukite.com blog is officially excerpted from the Liber-51/52 materials recently released in the NEW mardukite.com exclusive edition of the GATES OF THE NECRONOMICON anthology edited by Joshua Free. These materials are also available as Mesopotamian Religion by Joshua Free or Sumerian Religion II.

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.”

cuneisdgsdg 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.

MesopotamianReligionFrontcrop In short – 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 “Conjuration of the Fire God:

It is not I, but Marduk, Slayer of Serpents, Who summons thee.
It is not I, but Enki, Father of Magicians, Who calls thee here now.

SumerianReligion2crop As described, the ritual34 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, in my hand, I hold.

From the modernized Mardukite version:

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.

Gates3rdEdfrontcropMINI Returning to a an older version, transliterated by E.A. Budge for “Babylonian Life & History” (1883), we see a different method used toward 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.

And to this, the 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.

259202494_2439cd36a1_o2 The priest mystically sheds the ‘mortal spark, even if for a moment, to experience the transcendental magic clad in godhood. Rising on the planes of perceptual awareness – as a god, speaking on behalf of the chief of the pantheon – the priest-magician is now able to influence worldly affairs in the original and most direct magical means known on the planet – a direct interface with the gods as one of their own…

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

claytabletsheader

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sumerians, Sargon, Akkadian Babylonians & Ancient Mesopotamian Kings with Joshua Free

SumerianReligion2cropSince Marduk created me to be king and
Nabu has culled his people to my realm
– as the love I have for my own life,
so do I feel toward the building
and reign of their cities.

~ Nebuchadnezzar II
Mardukite Tablet-L Series,
Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible (trans.)

[This mardukite.com blog officially excerpted from the recent Mardukite Truth Seeker Press release by Joshua Free: Sumerian Religion II: Secrets of the Anunnaki & Babylonian Mythology.]

Babylon2 The Akkadian Dynasty of Sargon began in northern Mesopotamia – in the land of Akkad. Although their territory and influence was of only tribal significance during the early rise of the Sumerians proper, but when Sargon of Akkad used his military to unify the “two lands” of Mesopotamia, he established the first post-Sumerian unified kingdom empire in the world – indeed, for the first time, the lands of Akkad and Sumer were governed from a single capital: Sargon’s city of Agade (the city of Akkad in the land of Akkad, like Babylon in Babylonia or New York, New York), a city named for the word “unity” in Akkadian language.

AKKADIAN — as a culture and language — evolves alongside, but separate, from the southern Sumerians. It is fortunate, however, that they were participants in the same archetypal Anunnaki tradition.

SumerianReligion2crop The Akkadian people established a unique proto-Semitic culture and language distinctly, but shared the Sumerian dedication to the Anunnakipantheon” in addition to using cuneiform ‘wedge-styled’ writing – or at least a refinement of the same – to represent their own language – the Akkadian language – which replaced the Sumerian emegir mother-tongue, then made way for the continuation of other Semitic languages, like Hebrew, Canaanite, Phoenician, Arabic and Aramaic.

An assimilation of many pre-Babylonian (Sumerian) ‘programs’ and Enlilite ‘operations’ allowed for the refinement into post-Sumerian or “Mardukite” ideologies during the energetic change and power-shift as human civilization enters an astrological Age of Aries in c. 2160 B.C.

cunei The post-Sumerian Babylonian-Akkadian literary tradition shifts its emphasis from Enlilite World Order to MARDUK and the Mardukite Legacy and replaces the old paradigm altogether. The identities of the Supernal Trinity (ANU, ENLIL and ENKI) in addition to the Anunnaki pantheon and already established elements remain, but the emphasis is now on the ‘younger generation’ of Anunnaki represented in BABYLON.

ANU – the distant “Father” in heaven who birthed/commanded the Anunnaki gods visiting earth.

ENLIL – the local “Father” in the sky who cultivated the original establishment of Anunnaki gods of earth.

ENKI – the patron “Father” on earth who maintains the Anunnaki systems and programs of existence.

SumerianReligion2crop In the much anticipated follow-up to “Sumerian Religion: Secrets of the Anunnaki & The Origins of Babylon” (Liber 50), Joshua Free, a world renown authority on the Anunnaki, completes his presentation of this topic 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 drawn from the ancient cuneiform tablets of the Sumerians and Babylonians in the present day.

“Sumerian Religion II: Secrets of the Anunnaki in Babylonian Mythology” is not merely another dry academic rendering of obscure history; Sumerian Religion II will continue your progressive journey into the heart of Mesopotamian Mysteries that is just as relevant and critical today as it was thousands of years ago! Sumerian Religion II is the perfect practical companion to the study and practice of any and all systems as it displays the prehistoric origins of human traditions and the development of civilization on the planet, a fundamental truth that everyone can benefit from…
