A MANUAL OF PRACTICAL BABYLONIAN MAGICK

Collector’s Edition – Hardcover

10TH ANNIVERSARY
Global Release: May 30 2019
[An alternate edition–“Practical Babylonian Magic: Invoking the Power of the Sumerian Anunnaki“–is also planned for paperback release on June 21 2019.]


The complete “Mardukite Core” library collection is a revolutionary “New Age” advancement in authentic historical, spiritual and mystical research drawn from a unique unparalleled combination of archeological findings and esoteric mystical-magical traditions. A wellsprings of hidden information and cuneiform tablet translations awaits the seeker—drawn from ancient folds of forgotten lore: Sumerian, Babylonian, Akkadian, Assyrian, Chaldean, Egyptian, Yezidic, Zoroastrian and more. A holistic research-intensive path, rooted in the heart and soul of humanity in Mesopotamia, is laid out clearly for the “Truth Seeker” to see—in its pure and undefiled state.

In the midst of this, now in the 21st century, the “Mardukites” are a very real modern philosophical and meta-spiritual “New Thought” movement aligned specifically with the Anunnaki paradigm. In ancient Babylon, this was famously founded upon the followers of Marduk—recognized among the local pantheon as patron of Babylonian tradition and “King of the Gods” for this branch of the Mesopotamian mythos with special assistance by the Nabu priesthood of “Mardukite” scribes…

Yet—maps are not the journey—and while many are called; few are chosen. This path, although marked in signs and beacons, is not clearly or widely tread. This “pure undefiled” Self-Honest journey to the Source is not a path of the masses—and even those esoterically-inclined have many times retreated from its fundamentals and antiquated semantics, returning to more familiar veils and shadows run rampant throughout modern “New Age” movements. Others have attempted to “cherry-pick” the most practical applications from our earlier works—ironically, the very same coveted collection of materials now revealed in NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI GRIMOIRE—the final volume of this trilogy.

The newly released concluding volume of the hardcover trilogy — NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI GRIMOIRE — brings together the most “practical” materials from the “Mardukite Core” to provide the most pragmatic “grimoire”—both applicable to modern times and remaining true to the Anunnaki Legacy demonstrated in ancient Mardukite Babylon. Within these pages, the Seeker will discover instructions and rites given in two recently revised stand-alone “spellbooks”—Complete Book of Marduk by Nabu (containing Mardukite Liber-W, Z and parts of G) and The Maqlu Ritual Book (otherwise Mardukite Liber-M).

“To properly prepare the Seeker and introduce this work with integrity,” as Joshua Free explains in his preface, “I have also rewritten and updated material from Liber-E, the classic text released publicly as Magan Magic—from which I begin this anthology with an Introduction to Babylonian Magic. Finally—to complete our ‘Mardukite Core’ 10th Anniversary Collector’s Edition trilogy, Liber-K, also known as Enochian Magic & Kabbalah, is featured as an appendix.”

While many other texts appear within the Mardukite Library, it is the original “Mardukite Core” that modern Mesopotamian movements build their foundations from—and while the Seeker is strongly encouraged to at least pursue the greater legacy represented by all three volumes of the newly restored “Core,” there is more than sufficient information supplied for personal and practical exploration of these esoteric mysteries within this current “grimoire” But—be warned, for I am entrusting to a Seeker this volume apart from the supporting literature as it stands; and without impunity. Yet—for those who have already accumulated and worked through our bulky pile of research tomes—this current edition will be welcomed and celebrated for its revolutionary accessibility.

MARDUKITE NECRONOMICON — “Real” ANUNNAKI BIBLE is Origins of Everything! Even Judeo-Christian Scriptures!

Many have long wondered the truth—and it is available to us as clear today as it was thousands and thousands of years ago—impressed on ancient clay tablets… the first true writings at the inception of modern human civilization—some of which extend back to the time of the first societies, the first cities, the first systems, the first…well… everything. And while humanity has had a turbulent history ever since, what has suffered the most in all of this time is precisely the retention, understanding and basic ability to know the truth about the origins of everything. How things came to be what they are today is not as important as a return to the source and rediscovery of the original knowledge—the truth as it was laid out before the convolution of further systems and cultural fragmentation.

Where does one turn for answers?
And are there answers for us?

Sometimes the desire to “know” is not tempered with wisdom and discernment. We have all seen the types that have allowed the pursuit of esoteric knowledge to drive them “crazy”—so vastly interrupting and impeding any sense of “normalcy” that they either fall by the wayside or worse, become forever lost to a personal roller-coaster ride—closed tracked and cyclic, providing perpetual stimulation and the illusion of movement… but what true enlightenment? Where is the ascension if the movement is not perpetually upward—unfolding laden potentials that are not restricted to just what we can conceive of today. We begin to allow ourselves the freedom to achieve these states of higher awareness by acquiring and maintaining “true knowledge” as we process our experience of reality and what is possible.

Fortunately, for the past decade, a group called the “Mardukite Chamberlains” (or “Mardukite Research Organization”) has refined a collection of the most ancient writings on the planet, presented as an amazing source book of renderings drawn from ancient Mesopotamia—the land of Sumerians, Akkadians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Chaldeans—and its treasure trove of clay cuneiform tablets, completely translated, beautifully presented and accessible for all to see! What’s more, this amazing book—NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE edited by Joshua Free—has been carefully arranged and developed by those who actually take these matters seriously, not simply an academic interest or scholarly career. The etheric, astral and intellectual gateways that these materials unlock is far beyond what the written word can even express, and must instead be experienced first hand. Will you join us in knowing?

These raw underground materials have shaped the existence of man’s beliefs and traditions for thousands of years; right from the heart of Mesopotamia — the Ancient Near East: Sumer, Babylon and even Egypt!

Nearly a decade since the modern Mardukite inception – and thousands of copies in print – the NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE is a revolutionary “New Age” advancement in authentic historical, spiritual and mystical research drawn from a unique unparalleled combination of archaeological findings and esoteric mystical magical traditions. Sumerian, Babylonian, Akkadian, Assyrian, Chaldean, Egyptian, Yezidic, Zoroastrian… and more.

Revitalized and updated anew for a 10th Anniversary Seventh Edition, Joshua Free’s amazing NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE has already proven popular in the underground, sparking the ‘Mardukite Movement’ and inspiring several additional years of intensive research and experimentation into the ‘Mardukite Mysteries’ resulting in the ‘Mardukite Core’ — all of which begins with this very special tome…

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.

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!

BABYLONIAN MAGIC – Ancient Art of Priests, Kings & Magicians Revealed! by Joshua Free

“Systematic traditions, ‘hermetically sealed’ within themselves, rose from the Semitic grimoire-styled ceremonial magic, not surprisingly influenced by ‘Egypto-Babylonian’ forms of ritual magic (first the domain of Enki but later passed into the possession of Marduk and his scribe-son Nabu). The priest-magicians of Babylon would not actually have personally used a grimoire-like magic themselves, as this was not their way. At best, they would invoke the powers of the Anunnaki with incantations in the name of Marduk – but this manner of using the ‘secret names’ as properties of Marduk, or any other demigod, was a much more recent addition to the system…” –Joshua Free

[This blog-post appears courtesy of Mardukite Liber-51/52 available within the NEW Deluxe Edition of Sumerian Religion by Joshua Free. These materials are also available in the Year-2 Mardukite Anthology: Gates of the Necronomicon.]

During the era of the first ziggurat temples – the Anunnaki age – all of the magic constituted the ‘spiritual assistance’ that was governed by the state, ruled by priest-kings and temple attendants. The ‘mystics’ of Babylonia were all employed by the temples and scribe-houses, though there were undoubtedly those who confined themselves to their arts in the outlands, beyond the awareness of the societal realm.

The peasant class, however, did not practice much by way of ‘magic’ (as classified by anthropologists) outside of their own personal religious devotions, which in itself was mostly restricted to hymns and prayers learned from the temples. These personal devotions were also completely inclination-based, as there does not appear to be any prescribed devotional method or temple attendance required of a Babylonian citizen, nor even participation in national festivals.

Access to the ‘incantation-prayers’ of the priests were also not generally given to just anyone – and you had to be able to read them, or at the very least memorize them. General collections of these tablets were seldom kept, with the exception of priest-kings who might house their own personal libraries. An example: the Kuyunjik collection, called nis-kati (preserved in the British Museum) which was the private property of the Assyrian king Ashurbanipal.

The Altar of Offering set before the ‘Boat of the Gods’ (imagery also appearing in the Egyptian Tradition – a ‘Boat of the Gods’ carrying seven figures – e.g. the Seven Anunnaki Gods of the Babylonian ‘Younger Generation’) was also located at the official shrines – although personal altars could surely be constructed by a devotee appealing to their god, this would come much later during an era of ‘figurative mysticism’ because originally, these offerings would be physically received by a god in person, or via their ‘priestly secretaries’.

Common religious offerings included food and drink, incense and oil, even lavish jewelry and clothing – which were carried up the ziggurat steps of the ‘ladder to heaven’ to be placed before the feet of the god, or at the very least, at his ‘boat’ to be lifted to them.

When the appearance of the gods, themselves, was not present, it was customary to have an official piece of statuary left in there place. This became more and more figurative with the passage of time, and it is easy to see how many of these originating concepts evolved into later magical and religious practices – which were one and the same at their start.

Gold and lapis lazuli commonly appear as both ‘magical ritual aids’ and prestigious offerings to the ‘gods’ via their temples. Wands, necklaces and bags of loose lapis are often mentioned in esoteric texts (cuneiform tablets) from the Mesopotamians, in addition to golden rings and ‘amulet-plates’ marked with specific seals and cuneiform glyphs. Practical “underground” investigations into this type of work later developed into a modern standard used by the Mardukites who practice a contemporary Babylonian tradition, making use of illustrated sigil-seals and cuneiform signatures of the seven of the “Younger Generation” (as well as the Supernal Trilogy) – making ten sets in total. (See also the Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible and/or Book of Marduk by Nabu.)

Implementation of a practical magical system from the Babylonian ideal is somewhat different than what the contemporary mind, even an ‘esoteric’ one, is fundamentally familiar with. As opposed to the later magicians who appear to have had to connive and fool the hierarchies of spirits into assisting them, threatening them and even in fear of some retroactive revenge – the original magical system used by the priests of Babylonia was rooted in the deep personal relationship – running as deep as blood – that the Sumerian priest-kings and Mardukite NABU priest-scribes maintained with the sources of not only their religious power, but the basis of the entire system of civilization that allowed the progression of the human species into today.

All of this, according to tradition, resided in the influence of the Anunnaki gods – and the priest-kings and scribes were installed to be sure no one forgot this…
