“Necronomicon: The Anunnaki Grimoire” Hardcover Release Completes 10th Anniversary “Mardukite Core” Trilogy Series

Originally published in four installments, this special Necronomicon Grimoire anthology collects some of the most practical occult contributions from the modern Mardukite Research Organization as developed underground for the past decade, including two texts recently revised and released as stand-alone pocket hardcover editions: The Complete Book of Marduk by Nabu and The Maqlu Ritual Book.


NECRONOMICON – THE ANUNNAKI GRIMOIRE:
A MANUAL OF PRACTICAL BABYLONIAN MAGICK

Collector’s Edition – Hardcover

edited by Joshua Free
Complete Year-3 Liber-E,W/Z,M+K
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.

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.”

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?

FORBIDDEN ARCHAEOLOGY — Mardukite 10th Anniversary Reboot featuring “Necronomicon: The Anunnaki Bible”

Commemorating the 10th Anniversary of the modern “Mardukite” New Thought movement, the Director of “Mardukite Research & Development”Joshua Free—returns to “Mardukite TV” on YouTube for a 10th Anniversary “Reboot” series is dedicated to reintroducing the world to the NexGen work of the “Mardukite Chamberlains” and especially the primary source book of the movement, developed underground over the past decade as— NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE —available as a 10th Anniversary Hardcover Collector’s Edition on October 30, 2018.

NECRONOMICON : THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE is a revolutionary contribution toward true “New Age” advancement in authentic historical, mystical and esoteric research. It draws from a unique and unparalleled modern effort combining archaeological findings with the esoteric (“mystical” and “magical”) traditions—forming the backbone of what Truth Seekers are looking for! This book specifically concerns hard to find information about the Sumerians, Babylonians, Akkadians, Assyrians, Chaldeans, Egyptians… even including the Yezidic Traditions and Zoroastrianism.

Until the inception of the modern “Mardukite” movement, this information remained in the backwaters of human consciousness—even in the “New Age movement”—because they have not been as accessible as European traditions and other more popular and classical customs and revivals that are more widely accessible today—including even the Egyptians and the Hermetic Mysteries from the Classical Age. NECRONOMICON : THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE revives the heart and soul of humanity directly from the cradle of civilization as a complete cuneiform tablet collection anthology, translated and beautifully presented in its raw and undefiled state.

What sets the modern “Mardukite” organization and movement apart from a lot of others—and also the subject of some controversy—is the fact that it is a balanced combination of the “esoteric” and the “academic” or archaeological. As a New Thought Movement, the modern “Mardukite” methodology is not passive—it is an active movement—balanced coherently in the logic of philosophies and science. For a decade, the organization has operated underground as a collective of NexGen “Truth Seekers” essentially seeking the well-springs of hidden information, historical records, research of cuneiform tablets—which includes “esoteric” (“spiritual” and “mystical”) experimentation. This method of development, under the direction of Joshua Free, has led to the highly effective growth of this paradigm around the world.

NECRONOMICON : THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE reveals the “Ancient Mystery Tradition” as it first appears, when civilization is developing in Mesopotamia. This became the groundwork for later derived “Hermetic Traditions” and the “Underworld Mysteries” and legacy of “Books of the Dead,” not to mention the influences directly on Semitic lore and development of Judeo-Christian tradition, including the “Book of Genesis” and “Book of Enoch” and the entirety of the Kabbalah!

The Magical World of Joshua Free – A Road Paved with Druids, Elves and Wizards

(Joshua Free as “Merlyn Stone” in the 1990’s)

With more than two active decades in the underground “New Age” and occult scene (known as “Merlyn Stone” in the 1990’s), over 20 unique arcane texts in print (not including collected anthologies), and now a decade spent as presiding director of the modern Mardukite movement – you may have already experienced some piece of the magical world of Joshua Free personally or more likely one of the many very publicly visible facets of culture and industry that he has influenced from behind the scenes.

Having so adeptly remained in the underground for so many years, it is quite possible that you have never actually read one of these critically acclaimed esoteric and arcane underground bestselling classics by Joshua Free and there is no better time than now to reap the benefits of the experience. Many of the original beloved titles (from 1996–2008) now appear in a special economical anniversary collection available to the new generation of seekers and returning patrons alike.

Joshua Free (also known as “Merlyn Stone” in the 1990’s) released many amazing resources for the modern occultist many years before his launch of the Mardukite organization (primarily emphasizing Mesopotamian studies). Starting with the SORCERER’S HANDBOOK and DRACONOMICON from the 1990’s and continuing with the BOOK OF DRUIDRY and BOOK OF ELVEN-FAERIE in (the earliest part of) the new millennium – thousands of copies of books by Joshua Free were in circulation before writing his magickal magnum opus to date, the infamous ARCANUM materials, first completed at age twenty-four!

When the SORCERER’S HANDBOOK premiered in 1998, the first edition was printed from an old-fashioned typewriter. It was originally reproduced and bound by a (local) Denver Colorado copy-center until they decided to actually read it one day… then they refused serviced because they were afraid of the spiritual implications of having anything to do with it. Thus began a tradition of Joshua Free self-producing his own books long into his days of more commercial distribution. After circulating in the underground for a few months, a second edition was printed exclusively for members of the “Elven Fellowship Circle of Magick” and the “Order of the Crystal Dawn,” two interconnected underground occult organizations in Colorado using the text as a Book of Shadows in the late 1990’s.

Although best known now for his work pertaining specifically to Sumerian and Babylonian paradigms (especially Anunnaki subjects), over twenty years ago, Joshua Free became active in another prominent underground movement – Pheryllt Druidism – a tradition he was initiated into at the age of twelve and remains active in today as a protege of Douglas Monroe. DRACONOMICON began as a notebook kept from the earliest periods of initiation when personal research led into all matters of “Dragons.” It has been revised, changed and enhanced four times prior to reaching its current state – marking nearly twenty years of neodruidic influence before inspiring the release of a separate “Pheryllt” series/trilogy of materials by Joshua Free (of which PHERYLLT I and PHERYLLT II have been released).

Materials from Joshua Free’s original initiation notebooks (not necessarily specific to dragons) was released to the underground as THE BOOK OF DRUIDRY in 2001, forming a second part of the “Druid Compleat” series/trilogy of materials (also available as an anthology of the same title). The other title in this series, THE BOOK OF ELVEN-FAERE, is not only a masterpiece of Druidry and Celtic Magical Tradition in its own right – It also served as a basis of inspiration (along with materials from all the above mentioned titles) to begin the ARCANUM project and ultimately the inception of the Mardukite movement, publicly solidified in 2008 and rooted in these works before the establishment of the widely circulated ‘Mardukite Core‘ (presented as the Necronomicon series/cycle edited by Joshua Free).

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.
