ENKI – Babylonian Lord of the Earth, Sumerian God EA and Gnostic Demiurge

anunnakisumerianreligionheader

The spirito-mystical trinity that composes the ancient pantheon is concluded with Enki, brother of Enlil. Most genealogies, particularly emphasized by post-Sumerian civilizations, will conclude that Enki and Enlil are, in actuality, half-brothers. Both are divine sons of Anu, the “Sky-Father,” but as heir to “Kingship of Heaven,” En-lil is reported as the son of Antu (the “official” consort of Anu), while Enki is descended from Nammu [which is often equated to Tiamat in Babylonian lore and perhaps the justification of the descent of Marduk from Tiamat in some versions]…

MesopotamianReligionFrontcrop [This mardukite.com blog post is officially excerpted from Mardukite Liber 50, originally released as SUMERIAN RELIGION, with materials also found in the newly released anthology MESOPOTAMIAN RELIGION by Joshua Free. The Mardukite Year-2 Anthology, Gates of the Necronomicon, also contains these materials.]

Other cuneiform texts reveal Enlil as the eldest son of KI and Enki as the son of Antu. These differing lineages play a more significant role in the younger pantheon and later dualistic interpretations, but in the original formation of Sumerian civilization, Enlil and Enki are actually perfect compliments to one another in the division of the material world – Enlil as the ruler of the air and fire aspects, leaving Enki the domains of water and earth.

Enki2 As the Sumerian “Enki” form is relayed, the title suggests quite simply that he is “Lord of the Earth” [EN = Lord, KI = earth], later being relayed by the Babylo-Akkadian epitaph “Ea,” likely derived from the Sumerian ideograms for “house” [E] and “water” [A]. This water alignment is suggested further by the titles given to his temple-ziggurat, built in the southern city of Eridu [e-ri-dug – “home of the mighty”] known as both E.ENG-URA (House of Lower Waters) or E.ABZU (House in the Depths).

Where Enlil is given charge over the organization of “space” and the management of the other deities, Enki is given more control over “worldly matters” and carries the designation of forty. In essence, Enlil represents the active spirit that is the manifested world as a whole and why it can exist (separated from the “heavens”). By comparison, Enki represents the more passive elements, but clearly the more “material” ones, and also the spirit of how things exist – their “hidden” internal engineering and atomistic design.

cuneisdgsdg

“Here in Eridu there was a local deity by the name of Ea, and the aspiring theologians of that city, eager to make him the supreme deity of the land, pressed forward the claim for lordship over the earth, and in an effort to insure his claim applied to him the epithet en-ki, ‘Lord of the Earth,’ which then became his Sumerian name. But though Enki, after some centuries, did succeed in displacing Ninhursag [Belit, etc.] and taking third place in the pantheon, he failed to topple Enlil from his supremacy and had to settle and had to settle for second best, becoming an Enlil-banda, a kind of ‘Junior Enlil.’ Like other gods he had to travel to Nippur to obtain Enlil’s blessing after he had built his his temple E’engurra in Eridu; he had to fill the Ekur of Nippur with gifts and possessions so that Enlil might rejoice with him; though he had charge of the Me controlling the cosmos and all civilized life, he had to admit that these were turned over to him by a generous and more powerful Enlil.”
S.N. Kramer, Sumerian Mythology, 1944

The properties and position of Enki as establishing the material basis and infrastructure of civilization was observed most famously in an epic dedicated to the figure “Oannes” as recorded by a Babylonian priest, Berossus, in the 13th Century B.C. In this narrative, Enki is depicted as the “sublime fish god” [fish = scales = reptillian] who rises from his ocean home (or in this case, the Erythian Sea near the Persian Gulf) to teach men the crafts necessary for their developmental arts and sciences to flourish.

SAJAHA – Sudden underground emergence and attention to The Book of Sajaha in 1991 reminded us of our own modern construction of an ancient wisdom tablet series — Book of Marduk by Nabu — which was entirely the development of the internal ‘Mardukite Chamberlains’ in 2009 and 2010, styled in the likeness of a ‘Prayerbook’ as might have been kept by the priests and kings of the Babylonian (Mardukite) tradition…

DRUIDSCHOOL – Unfortunately there has been a lack of decent materials for the aspiring modern Druids. Most of the books available are rehashes of their questionable history. Fewer resources will relate to the reader something pragmatic and practical for our times – again, unfortunate. However, the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press has recently released the revised and expanded edition of the complete course curriculum in Druidry…

DRUIDIC TRADITION – Though it would seem nearly impossible to study the “Druids” without tapping into the “Celtic” stream, some scholars commonly confuse the two terms as interchangeable. It is true that the Druids of our known history developed a tradition in the Celtic lands (or “Keltia”) but they were a separate people from the wild tribal shamanic folk who were later unified under the banner of Druidism…

BARDDAS – It is interesting that many modern druid orders thrash the BARDDAS while simultaneously adopting many of its teachings, even if inadvertently. The Sign of Awen frequently used to distinguish Druidry as well as the lore of the Druid’s Cabala (and it’s terminology) mainly originate with the “Barddas.” The Coelbren of the Bards, the Alban calendar and hundreds of triad teachings are also translated from this work for contemporary use…

THE BOOK OF MARDUK BY NABU is reflective of a very real modern movement connected to the Anunnaki system that was realized most famously in ancient Babylon, among the followers of a particular deity, MARDUK – who became not only the patron of the city but also the self-proclaimed ‘King of the Gods’ with the assistance of the Nabu priests and scribes…

SUMERIAN LANGUAGE: The overt evolution of the Sumerians into a Babylonian Empire is, as we have described in the prior section on history, not altogether surprising – on the surface. However, the seeker should keep in perspective just how quickly all of this developed from seemingly nothing. Where first we have loosely organized nomadic hunter-gatherers that are forced to wander about or dwell in caves, essentially rolling the dice of chance for their survival, very little time passes before the sweeping transition in Mesopotamia toward planned agricultural farming and pasturing shepherds…

SYSTEMOLOGY: Although most people assume that the lore of Systemology is derived from a similar-sounding organization of a seemingly similar nature as what the Mardukites have pursued with this endeavor—the work and lore of the Mardukite Systemologists most certainly did not originate with the writings of Lafayette Ron Hubbard or even novels and fantasies of the current editor. Instead, they were drawn from the oldest spiritual tradition on the planet—that which is maintained by the beliefs of the gods, themselves, and not merely restricted to the understandings reasoned by primitive humans and the way in which they were given an understanding of things, spiritual or otherwise…

DRAGONS are significant archetypes in ancient mythologies and the magickal world of modern wizards. The earliest creation epics (of Sumerian or Ubaid-Sumerian origin) depict the Earth Planet as the “body” of a great dragon, and the skies as the “head.” The ancient Druids, descended from the primordial line of Dragon Kings by way of the Tuatha d’Anu (Tuatha de Dannan), referred to the Earth as a dragon…
