111 Enochian Prayers

These are the 111 Enochian prayers to God that I initially created for a book manuscript. You are the beneficiary of my changing my mind and deciding to publish them directly online. I hope you find them helpful in your journey.

Pronunciation: The text of the prayers, in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS, is a simple transliteration of Enochian into the English alphabet. Aaron Leitch has done a good job of reconstructing the Enochian original pronunciation. There is also the original Golden Dawn pronunciation (such as you may have heard on Supernatural).

I chose to use a modified Latin pronunciation because of its universality; because of the use of Latin by the angels themselves; because Dee himself could read, write, and speak it; because it appears to largely parallel the pronunciation of Enochian as documented by Leitch; and finally, because I have found that vibrating these prayers with this pronunciation to be quite potent. It also makes it very easy to read the transliterated angelic letters aloud for someone with no additional familiarity with Enochian.

At times, if Enochian word is a single letter, such as the word “L,” I have added a lowercase letter in front of it (in this example, “eL”) in to the Latin-letter transliteration to improve ease of reading and pronunciation: “eL” should be pronounced to rhyme with the English word “well” due to its history in Hebrew as a suffix for angel and prophet names.

My modified Latin pronunciation is offered below:

A or A’“Ah” as in father
ELong “A”: as in “day,” “may
ILong “E”: “see,” “tree
OLong “O” as in “over” and “home.
ULong “U” as in “tune” and “lunar”
CAlways a hard “C” as in “care” and “compassion”
GAlways a hard “G” as in “give” and “get”
Q or Q’Pronounce “quah” (“kwah”).
Z’If on its own, “Zohd” (rhymes with “goad”).
YAlways a consonant

(Remaining consonants: as in English). Occasionally, I have added pronunciation notes within parentheses within the prayers themselves.

Truth be told, the angels don’t seem to mind: they are benevolent and responsive to your effort. These prayers to God also seem to be effective regardless of precision of pronunciation. Several fellow magickians have tried one or more of these prayers with success. Enjoy!

A word on translation: Generally, Enochian appears to follow English syntax. Whenever possible I used the appropriate Enochian grammar, but at times the language did not have the appropriate tense to match the English case. Whenever this occurred, I substituted a word which was the incorrect case, but which otherwise was the correct word. For example, certain prayers have the pronoun “me” in the English translation, but the word “me” is not available in Enochian. However, the word “I” is readily available, so I used the “I” (for example, the phrase “give to me” turns into “give to I”). Is this completely correct grammar? Of course not. However, to quote Lon Milo DuQuette, if a mouse “hopped up on your shoe and started to talk to you in your native tongue, you’d be impressed”—and the precision of the language wouldn’t matter! As long as the language is understandable, I take as a given the generosity of the Recipient of these prayers.

0. Opening call to prayer

If desired, the supplicant may recite this variation of Shema Yisrael (Deuteronomy 6:4) combined with the phrase “God is love” (1 John 4:8). The second version of this prayer, which uses encoded Enochian words and phrases (“ZZZDZ,” etc.) in this call have been uncovered using Henry Cornelius Agrippa’s method as described in his Three Books of Occult Philosophy or Magic: Book Three – Ceremonial Magic, “Chapter xxvii. Of the calculating Art of such names by the tradition of Cabalists,” but applied to the Enochian alphabet to obtain “higher” versions of these, as described by Aaron Leitch The Whole Enochian Dictionary. Note that the phrases for “God,” “Highest God,” and “All is one” become encoded entirely with the letters Gal (“D”) Un (“L”), and Ceph (“Z”) when encoding using the column for the sun, the “king” of the seven planets in classical astrology. Each of these three letters is the fourth in their respective sets of seven letters as they were revealed to Dee and Kelley.

The reader is strongly encouraged to review the original Agrippa table and enter the Enochian alphabet in the order in the order that the letters were revealed to Dee and Kelley when working this process.

SOLPETH, MONONS-MANIN: JAIDA IAD, JAIDA I eL, TON I eL, JAIDA I PRONOA*.

SOLPETH, MONONS-MANIN: ZZZDZ (“Zohd-zohd-zoh-dee-zohd”) ZZD (“zohd-zoh-dee’), ZZZDZ Z L (zohd ell), ZDLZL (“zoh-dee-el-zohd-el”), ZZZDZ Z ZLDLDZ (“zohd-ell-dee-ell-dee-zohd”).

Hear, o heart-mind: the Highest God our God, the Highest God is One, all is one, the Highest God is love.

*This is a neo-Enochian word and should be interpreted with caution.

1. Prayer for global-level effects

(Update: This prayer has always been redacted. Skip to the final prayer for a very slow way to obtain the same effects.).

2. To bless a temple or sacred space

Whether a small corner of a closet, or an open meadow, use this prayer to lay the foundation for later spiritual workings.

A LAVA ZURAAHUS, IAD: NAH IEH MAAH, PRDZAR TON DOALIM OD DRIX AQLO RIT EMNA SEM***. NOASMI OI SIAION POAMAL K’ YLSI, OD OZAZMA PLAPLI DE AQLO MAD MOZOD, QRASAHI, OD NAH: NOIB, L DE PIBLIAR. OR OD EF, IAD DE RIT, OD DLUGAR SEM GAH TIA OD CAOSGON OD K’ SAGA MANO.

            ***To make this sacred space private to you, add here “DE OL.”

English Translation: In fervency I pray, God: glorious, merciful, hidden God, diminish all sin and bring down your mercy here in this place. Let this Temple become a palace unto Thee and make us partakers of your pure divine joy, pleasure, and glory: yea, one of the places of comfort. Appear before us and visit us, God of Mercy, and give in this place angels unto us, unto the earth, and unto the entire soul of humanity.

3. To Obtain Memory of Past Lives

Sometimes, we desire to better understand our soul, and for this we desire additional knowledge about it: use this prayer to ask for it.

IEH MAAH: AMIPZI OD COMMAH OI MANIN A CNILA DE OI GAH: NOIB, OI GAH DS ZIROP OD I OD CHISO. IX TON PAPNOR DE OI GAH TORZU, ZACAR, OD ZAMRAN, OD DLUGA K’ OI MANIN PRIGAH, RIT, OD ETHARZI DE MADRIAX, DS ZIROP, OD I, OD CHISO.

Merciful hidden God fasten and truss together this mind with the blood of this soul, yea, this soul, which was, and is, and shall be. Let the memory of this soul move, arise, and appear, and give unto this mind the glory, mercy, and peace of heaven, which was, and is, and shall be.

4. To Improve Health of Yourself or a Loved One

If you find yourself in poor health of mind or body or in pain, use this prayer to request divine comfort and healing.

L, NAH IEH JAIDA: GRU OI MANIN OD OI TON QAA, NOIB, UNAL DE OL [or name of target] UGEG OD CACACOM OD OM NACRO. PRDZAR TON GROSB DE OI QAA OD OI MANIN DE OL [or name of target], IEH IAD! GRU AQLO RIT OD ETHARZI K’ [OL/name of target] TORZU, ZACAR, OD ZAMRAN, NAH IAD!

The One God; glorious, merciful, highest God: cause this mind and this entire garment [of the soul—i.e., this entire body], yea, these of mine/name of target to grow strong and flourish and know renewal. Diminish all bitter stings of body and mind of mine/name of target, merciful God! Cause your mercy and peace towards me [or name of target] to move, arise, and appear, glorious God!

5. To Heal from Traumatic Memory and PTSD

The first noble truth of the Buddha was the truth of suffering. Suffering is inherent to life, but if traumatic memories intrude, recite this prayer for the mitigation and healing of suffering.

IEH eL, IEH IAD, IEH JAIDA, IEH MAAH, IEH AHAH: SOLPETH K’ BIEN! DLUGA UNDL, RIT, NACRO, OD BLIARD K’ PAPNOR DE TIBIBP A OI MANIN OD QAA, JAIDA! IX OHIO OD CIAOFI DE OI MANIN, IUSMACH DE DOALIM: NOIB, OI FABOAN, CARMA. IX OI MANIN OM ETHARZI, IEH L, OD ZIMII POAMAL DE AQLO NAH MADRIAX.

Merciful One God, Merciful God, Merciful Highest God, Merciful Hidden God, aye, Merciful Inmost God: hearken to my voice! Give rest, mercy, renewal, and comfort unto the remembrance of sorrow in this mind and garment [i.e., the body], highest God! Let the woe and terror of this mind, begotten of sin: aye, this poison, come out. Let this mind know peace, Merciful One God, and enter the palace of your glorious heavens.

6. Prayer to Recover from Addiction

If you are in the throes of addiction, seek help. This prayer is intended to be a supplement to the treatment process—not as an alternative. Via this prayer the aspirant requests to thrive and seek a greater glory.

OI MANIN OD QAA CARMA GE DE OI FABOAN, IAD! ZORGE, JAIDA, OD DLUGA UMPLIF DE MADRIX K OL. GRU OZIEN, MONONS, OD MANIN CACACOM, UGEG, MOOOAH DE OI FABOAN, OD PAAOX AZIA ACHILDAO-LORSLQ, HARGIM A AQLO PIRGAH OD ASKLEH DE MADRIAX, NOIB, MEKASMAN.

This mind and body are not coming out of this poison, God! Be friendly unto me, Lord, and give the strength of heaven to me. Cause my hand, heart, and mind to flourish grow strong, repent of this poison and remain like unto diamond-flowers planted in your glory and divine will of heaven: yea, the highest heaven.

7. To Obtain Greater Connection to your Fellow Human Beings

It is not uncommon to feel disconnected from others. This prayer asks to reconnect with others’ humanity, and vice versa.

IEH MAAH, AMIPZI OD COMMAH VOMZARG CANSE, IEH, NAH MONONS A TURBS, OD VOMZARG CANSE, IEH, OD NAH MANIN SEM A OL. ODO BUTMONI DE VOMZARG MONONS BRITA PIRGAH DE MADRIAX, CAOSGON, OD DE MEKASMAN OD OVOF, COAZIOR, OD DLUGA OI PIRGAH K’ MANO, SAGA CAOSG, OD SAGA MADRIAX.

Merciful hidden God fasten and truss together every mighty, merciful, and glorious heart with beauty, and every mighty, merciful, and glorious mind in this place with me. Open the mouths of every heart to speak of the glory of heaven, of the earth, and of the highest heaven, and magnify, increase, and give this glory unto the soul of humanity the entire earth and heaven.

8. To Obtain Knowledge and Conversation of your Holy Guardian Angel

The Knowledge and Conversation of one’s Holy Guardian Angel (“KCHGA,” for short) is an important task for those in the hermetic path; those outside of this path can also benefit from it. This prayer is intended to be appended to the traditional means of this magical achievement, such as the Abramelin operation and the Bornless Rite.

CANSE JAIDA, IEH MAAH: ZORGE OD OI MONONS DE OL!

GRU AQLO BRANSG, L DE LANG: NOIB, L DE PIR, OD DE OL, TORZU, ZACAR, OD ZAMRAN, IEH IAD! TABAORI OI L DE LANG PAID BRITA AQLO LAIAD OD ANANAEL K’ OL, OD PAID DLUGAR UNAL OOANOAN, OI MANIN, OD OI MONONS LONSA PAID DORPHAL MIRC TILB Q TOX Q NOTHOA, PAID GOHOL K’ OL, OD PAID PURAN, SOLPETH OD OVOF ADGMACH OD TURBS DE CONGAMPHLGH.

Mighty, highest God, merciful God: be friendly to me and this heart of mine. Cause your guardian, one of those who serve: aye, one of the holy ones, and of me [i.e., “my”: “my holy guardian angel,” which is of God first, but also assigned to the individual, and therefore the individual’s personal HGA] to move, arise, and appear, merciful God! Govern this one of those angels who serve to always speak about Thy secret truth and secret wisdom unto me, and to always give these eyes, this mind, and this heart power to always look with gladness upon her or him or amidst [i.e., an angel of non-binary gender] to always speak to this me, and to always see, listen and to magnify the glory and beauty of the Holy Ghost.

Govern this guard, one of those who serve, aye, one of the holy ones to always open this eagle-heart, merciful God, and always fasten this glory to the secret truth and secret wisdom of my power, and always truss together my power to heaven-upon-earth.

9. To Create Prosperity

We all wish for prosperity! This prayer is to ask for a wholistic kind of prosperity, of body and mind, so that it can give back to the grander field from which the aspirant has arisen.

ACURTOH! NAH, IEH AHAH, MAAH, JAIDA: GRU OZIEN, LASDI, MONONS, OOANOAN, OD BIEN: NOIB, OI QAA OD OI MANIN UGEG OD KAKAKOM OD NOAN LAS CAOSGON, FAFEN OL ADGT OM ETHARZI OD ADGT DLUGA UNAL, NOIB, OD T’ MEKASMAN, K’ SAGA CORDZIZ OD SAGA MANO.

God is triumphant! Glorious, merciful inmost God, secret God, Highest God: cause my hands, my feet, heart, eyes, and my voice: yea, this body and this mind to grow strong and flourish and become rich on the earth, to the intent that I can know peace and can give these, aye, and also the highest heaven, unto all mankind the entire soul of humanity.

10. Overcome or escape enemies

This prayer asks to find escape from enemies via empowerment, thus either escaping or transforming their attitudes to something friendlier. Be aware that either outcome is possible and act accordingly.

            NAH, IEH NAB, IX OL, CA VABZIR, ZILDAR K’ ETHARZI. QUASB LONSHIN DE UNPeH A MONONS DE [name of target]; IX TOX/TIOBL MONONS, AZIA EDNAS, OM NACRO OD UMPLIF. DLUGA UMADEA K’ [name of person or “OL” for oneself], OD TABAORI AQLO BRANSG NOTHOA [name of person or “OL” for oneself], DORPHAL TOX/TIOBL/OL, K’ CASARMA ILS DLUGA IEHUSOZ. IEH IAIDA, IX RIT, NACRO, OD LONSHI UGEGI A OL OD OI MONONS.

Glorious, merciful, infinite God: let me, as an eagle, fly to peace. Destroy the power of wrath in the heart of [name of target]; let his/her heart, like unto receivers, understand renewal and strength of mercy. Give strong towers unto [name of person to be protected, or “OL” for oneself], and govern your guard amidst [name of person or “OL” for oneself] to look upon him/her/me (respectively), unto whom Thou givest mercy. Merciful highest, let mercy, renewal, and power grow strong in me and in this heart.

11. Quieting the Mind

If the mind is in turmoil, spiritual progress is difficult. Use this prayer to ask for a quieter mind to be receptive to illumination.

IEH MAAH, DLUGA TON ETHARZI PAMBT OD OI MANIN OD MONONS.
Merciful Hidden God, give all peace unto me and this mind and heart.

12. Healing and Opening the Heart

Who hasn’t known heartache? Yet even a heart that is healed, yet remains closed, will never be at its strongest. Chant this prayer to seek both healing and opening of your heart to the richness that awaits it.

            IEH IABES: FBLIARD, CAMLI K’ OD ODO OI MONONS. TORZU, ZACAR, OD ZAMRAN, MONONS, OD SOLPETH BIAL DE IEHUSOZ, BIAL DE JAIDA.

Merciful Lord, supreme life: visit with comfort, speak unto and open this heart. Move, arise, and appear, o heart, and hearken unto the voice of mercy, the voice of the highest.

13. Prayer to Protect Oneself or One’s Loved Ones

This prayer is deliberately simple and seems to be best as a long-term protective prayer.

JAIDA, DE BAB DE ILS, DLUGA UMADEA K’ [name of person or “OL” for oneself], OD TABAORI AQLO BRANSG NOTHOA [name of person or “OL”], DORPHAL TOX/TIOBL/OL, ASOBAM ILS DLUGA IEHUSOZ.

Highest God, of your dominion, give strong towers to [name of person or “OL” for oneself], and govern your guard amidst [name of person or “OL”] to look upon Him/Her/Me, whom Thou givest mercy.

14. Prayer to Comfort those in Mourning

This prayer was inspired after a loved one was going through an extended period of mourning for her mother. Her mourning period seemed to close shortly after reciting this prayer.

NAH, IEH MAAH: IX GE [name of deceased] BAMS LORSLQ, RIT, OD MONONS DE [bereaved]; T’IX GE [name of bereaved] BAMS LORSLQ, RIT, OD MONONS DE [name of deceased]. IX MONONS DE [bereaved] HOM A MONONS DE [deceased], GE HOXPOR Q UNPeH, OD IX MONONS DE [deceased person’s name] HOM A MONONS DE [bereaved], GE HOXPOR Q UNPeH. IEH MAAH, DLUGAR ETHARZI OD MOZ DE VANGLOR OD JAIDA.

Glorious, merciful, hidden God: do not let [name of deceased] forget the flowers, mercy, and heart of [name of bereaved]; also, do not let [name of bereaved] forget the flowers, mercy, and heart of [name of deceased]. Let the heart of [name of bereaved] live in the heart of [name of deceased], not bringing fear or anger, and let the heart of [name of deceased] live in the heart of [name of bereaved], not bringing fear or anger. Merciful hidden God, give peace and joy of the fruit of heaven and the highest.

15. Asking for more time

Who wouldn’t love more time? Somehow it seems as if we are always running short on it. Recite this prayer to ask the Divine for more time.

JAIDON, OL LAVA ZURAAHUS LAP VADGS OD Q- KOKASB, OD QRASAHI DE UNAL. PAAOXT OD UGEG, IADBALTOH, OD DLUGA OD IOR VOHIM A NAH, OD IEH MOZ, MOZOD, NA-HATH, VE, NOIB, GIGIPAH K’ SAGA CAOSGON OD TIA, SAGA MANO.

God, the All-Powerful, I pray fervently for time and the contents of time, and the pleasure of these. Let it remain and grow strong, God of Righteousness, and give and roar mighty with glorious and merciful joy, Divine joy, the spark of life, the breath of life, aye, living breath, unto all the earth and unto us, the whole soul of humanity.

16. For Creative Inspiration

Sometimes the ability to create something new is lacking due to insufficient energy or spirit (as ineffable as these things are). This prayer asks to provide what is needed to bring new ideas, or to bring dormant ideas to life.

GRU AQLO ZONG OD OLPIRT CARMA DE MADRIAX, JAIDA, OD IX PAR ODO OI MONONS, OI MANIN, OD UNAL OOANOAN K’ TURBS DE AQLO BIEN OD PIRGAH, IEH IAD! NOASMI CONISBRA DE OI MANIN OD OI MONONS EMNA MAD, UGEG, CACACOM, OD COAZIOR AQLO PIRGAH OD RIT PAMBT OD K’ SAGA MANO.

Cause your breeze and light to come out of heaven, Highest God, and let them open this heart, this mind, and these eyes to the beauty of your voice and glory, Merciful God! Let the work of humanity of this mind and this heart here become pure, grow strong, flourish, and increase your glory and mercy unto me and to the entire soul of humanity.

17. Finding your Purpose.

Finding one’s purpose in this world is difficult, and one need only turn on the news to find examples of people who lack it. With this prayer, the aspirant calls upon the divine for assistance in finding for her or his purpose in the present moment.

BIEN TORZULE NONCA, IAD, FAFEN OMUS CAPIMALI GRUA CAOSG NONKehP. IAD, ILS DLUGA IEH OD NAH BAB, MOZ, OD MOZOD TIA, K’ MONONSA VOM. IAD, ILS EOO A VON: OIT RLU LRL OOE.

VAVALUS OGI, BAL ADNA NONCA, IABES, IOIAD! OALI ILS NACRO OD FAF NehN UNAL OOAONA OD TOL GRU DE OZIEN OD LASDI, OD OZAZM INSUS PERIPSAX CAOSG.

My voice shall rise to you, o God, to the intent that I know successive deeds on the Earth for Thee. God, you give glorious and merciful power, joy, and joy unto us, to the hearts of everyone. God, Thou makest man in [the] image of God: this is the completed work that God changes into man.

Therefore, your will be done! Be friendly to me! Bring down the will of heaven, divine will: yea, the will of God and the secrets of truth, to the intent that they may become abiding in the mind and in and with this heart, and to the intent that they will exist and live and grow strong on the earth. Arise, move, and appear in this heart, this glorious higher truth: my power, the Seed of God. The initiation into the essence of the sun is completed by the One God.

I work with this, correct obedience unto Thee, merciful God, Lord who liveth forever! Place renewal within these eyes and all the deeds of my hands and my feet, and make me walk with the heavens on the earth.

18. Healing your relationship to Earth and Humanity

In this moment, the disruptions of Earth’s ecosystems by pollution and climate change speaks to humanity’s inconsistency in its relationship to earth. Perhaps you feel such an inconsistency in your own feelings toward the earth and to your fellow human beings. If so, you may use this prayer to request divine assistance in improving your relationship to earth and to humanity.

NAH IEH IAD, JAIDON, MAAH, NAB, IABES: LAVA ZURAAHUS (for groups, “LAVA ZURAAHIA”) ILS DLUGA NAH OD IEH OLPIRT, ORDANOL: LAIAD, OMP; ANANAEL; MOMAO; BAB; GMICALZOMA (“gee-my-cal-zoh-mah”); PADGZE; LANSH; MEKASMAN; QRASAHI QAAN; QRASAHI Q-KOKASB; DS (“deess”) MOZ DS MOZOD; OD PAAOX DLUGA PIAD NAH OD IEH NACRO K’NA-HATH DS (“deess”) VE, SAGA CAOSGON OD TIA, SAGA MANO.

Merciful God, the all-powerful, hidden God, the infinite God: Lord, supreme life: I/we pray that you give glorious and merciful light, manifesting: the secret truth; understanding; the secret wisdom; power; crowns; the power of understanding; justice, of mercy, from divine power without defect; exalted power; the highest heaven; pleasure of your creation; pleasure of the contents of time; and joy and joy of God; and remain giving continually glorious and merciful renewal of the root and spark of life, to the whole earth & unto us, to the entire soul of humanity. God, be Thou completely righting, out of mercy, all sin, until all sin is in glorious and merciful dissolution.

I/we work for the way of the Lord. I/we cry aloud the eternal cry: all for the glory of God!

19. Prayer to Discover More Enochian Words

The purpose of this prayer is simple: requesting additional Enochian words, the better to compose prayers with.

NAH JAIDA: BAB DE BIEN OD IADNAMAD I CANSE, IADOIASMOMAR!

KA, DRIX OD HARG CRUS BIEN DE AQLO OMP OD ANANAEL: NOIB, LOAGAETH, IUSMACH MANIN DE ILS, QADAH (“quah-dah”) A MANIN DE CORDZIZ.

Glorious highest God: the power of the voice and pure/divine knowledge is mighty, Eternally Crowned God!Therefore, bring down and plant more voice of your understanding and the secret wisdom: yea, the speech of God, begotten in the mind of Thee, Creator God, in the mind of humanity. Let the speech of God move, arise, and appear in the mind of your servants, and as diamond-flowers flourish to the intent that beauty of the highest heaven arises, moves, and appears upon the earth and to us, to the soul of humanity. Let humanity fasten the speech of God, to the intent that humanity and earth become as the highest heaven, and one with the highest heaven, diamond-places of comfort, and all sing praises and a song of honor unto Thee for Thy mighty mercy, hidden God.

20. Prayer to reduce homelessness.

Pray as follows to ask divine assistance for people to receive homes.

IEH IAD, DLUGAR RIT. GRU TON OLAP BRINTS SALMAN DE ETHARZI, JAIDA.

Merciful God, give mercy. Cause all people to have homes of peace, highest god.

21. Prayer for fertility and the bearing healthy children.

It is not uncommon to desire the joy that a child can bring. This prayer requests the assistance of the divine to conceive happy and healthy children.

IEH MAAH, K’ OL DE AQLO DAX OD DE AQLO IEH MANIN OD IEH MONONS: ZORGE! GRU UNAL DAX OZAZM PABS OD NOROMI A’ JAIDA OLPIRT, RIT, UMPLIF, PADGZE, IADNAMAD, OMP: NOIB, ANANAEL OD MOMAO: LAP NACRO OD CACACOM CAOSGON OD PIRGAH DE MADRIAX OD CONGAMPHLGH.

Cause these loins to make daughters and sons with highest light, mercy, strength, justice of divine power without defect, undefiled knowledge, understanding: yea, the hidden wisdom and crowns: for the renewal and flourishing of the earth and glory of heaven and the Holy Spirit. Cause the sons and daughters of mine, yea, and of all of humanity, to bring down heaven unto earth, merciful highest God!

22. Prayer for the actions and words to uplift and comfort humanity (such as an audience).

Whether seeking an immediate or long-term effect, recite this prayer to request the Divine’s assistance in uplifting the hearts of your fellow human beings.

NAH JAIDA! GRU UNAL ZNA DRIX MADRIAX CAOSGON OD UML AQLO PIRGAH OD BUSDIR A TON MONONS DE CORDZIZ OD SAGA MANO.

Glorious Highest God! Cause these actions to bring down heaven to the earth and increase Thy glory and the first glory in all hearts of humanity and the entire soul of humanity.

23. Prayer for sleep.

Here is a simple prayer for a simple request: to sleep.

JAIDA, GRU OL/[name of target] BRDGA (“burr-ja”) A MANIN OD MONONS DE MADRIAX.

Highest God, cause me/[name of target] to sleep with a mind and heart of heaven.

24. Prayer to send the departed to heaven.

Whereas Prayer 14 links the bereaved and the deceased, this prayer explicitly requests that the deceased be allowed to return to the celestial.

IEH MAAH, IX [name of deceased] NIISA CAOSG K’ MEKASMAN, FAFEN TOX/TIOBL MONONS OD MANIN CACACOM, UGEG, OD OM NACRO, EG JAIDA.

Merciful Hidden God, let [name of deceased] come away from Earth to the highest soul and to heaven, to the intent that his/her heart and mind flourish, grow, and know renewal, Holy Highest God.

25. Prayer to protect persons and home from fire.

Prayers 25–28, prayers for protection from the elements, can be combined depending on the nature of the threat (e.g., a wildfire would require protection from both fire and wind, whereas a mudslide and avalanche would require protection from water and earth). If combining, be sure to use a combined form of the God name (e.g., LeHCOMA-NANTA or LEXARP-BITOM), or simply “L.”

IEH, NAH L-BITOM, NOASMI ILS AZIA BRANSG, OD GRU [“OI” or name of target] GE BRIN GROSB DE PRGEL DE AQLO QAA.

Merciful, glorious unified God of the element of fire, become Thou like unto a guard, and cause (me/target) to not have the bitter sting of the fire of your creation.

26. Prayer to protect self and home from Air (e.g., winds).

IEH, NAH LEXARP, NOASMI ILS AZIA BRANSG, OD GRU [“OI” or name of target] GE BRIN GROSB DE OZONGON DE AQLO QAA.

Merciful, glorious unified God of the element of air, become Thou like unto a guard, and cause (me/target) to not have the bitter sting of the manifold winds of your creation.

27. Prayer to protect self and home from Water (e.g., floods).

IEH LeHCOMA, NOASMI ILS AZIA BRANSG, OD GRU [“OI” or name of target] GE BRIN GROSB DE PILZIN DE AQLO QAA.

Merciful, glorious unified God of the element of water, become Thou like unto a guard, and cause (me/target) to not have the bitter sting of the waters of your creation.

28. Prayer to protect self and home from Earth (e.g., earthquakes).

IEH L-NANTA, NOASMI ILS AZIA BRANSG, OD GRU [“OI” or name of target] GE BRIN GROSB DE GIZYAX VALBAS* DE AQLO QAA.

Merciful, glorious unified God of the element of earth, become Thou like unto a guard, and cause (me/target) to not have the bitter sting of earthquakes or the earth of your creation.

*This is a neo-Enochian word and so should be interpreted with caution. It means “elemental” earth.

29 through 32. Prayers to reconcile oneself with the four elements.

Just as you can ask for protection from the elements, you can also request for reconciling yourself with their fundamental energies. The supplicant may use this for stabilizing oneself within Malkuth in the four Kabbalistic worlds, a typical starting point for magicians following magical paths with the Kabbalah as its model.

The supplicant should use the respective God-name for each of the elements; L-BITOM for fire, LEXARP for air, LeHCOMA for water, and L-NANTA for earth. If combining these prayers, the supplicant may simply use the unified God name of “L.”

IEH OD NAH (L-BITOM, LEXARP, LeHCOMA, L-NANTA), ODO CICLE QAA, OD OZAZMA [OL/name of target] PLAPLI IADNAMAD DE AQLO (PurRGe, ZONG, PILZIN, VALBAS*).

Merciful and glorious God of elemental (fire, air, water, earth), open the mysteries of your creation, and make [me/name of target] a partaker of the undefiled knowledge of (fire, manifold winds, waters, earth).

*This is a neo-Enochian word and so should be interpreted with caution. It means “elemental” earth.

33. Prayer to reconcile oneself with the energy of the sun.

Just as balancing with the elements is a fundamental task for magicians in the Western Magickal Tradition, so, too, is the balancing with the energies of the planets. Although additional planets have been discovered since Dee’s time, prayers 33–39 reflect only the traditional 7 astrological planets, of which the two luminaries, the sun and moon, have known Enochian names. The remaining names are strictly based on the etymological reference of planets as “wandering” lights (or, as I have chosen to write it in Enochian, “walking” lights), in contrast to the “fixed” stars.

NAH JAIDA, ODO CICLE QAA, OD OZAZMA OL NOAS PLAPLI IADNAMAD DE ROR, L DE OLPIRT DS INSI A MADRIAX.

Glorious highest God, open the mysteries of your creation, and make me become a partaker of undefiled knowledge of the sun, the first of the lights which walks in the heavens.

34. Prayer to reconcile oneself with the energy of the moon.

Glorious highest God, open the mysteries of your creation, and make me become a partaker of undefiled knowledge of the moon, the second of the lights which walks in the heavens.

35 through 39: Prayers to reconcile oneself with the energy of the five remaining traditional astrological planets: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, & Saturn.

NAH JAIDA, ODO CICLE QAA, OD OZAZMA OL NOAS PLAPLI IADNAMAD DE (D, S, O, NORZ, SNI**) DE OLPIRT DS INSI A MADRIAX.

Glorious highest God, open the mysteries of your creation, and make me become a partaker of undefiled knowledge of the (third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh) the second of the lights which walks in the heavens.

**The name of number was derived etymologically from other Enochian words, specifically “SNICOL” (Seven Sheaths) and “COLLAL” (sleeves), which together strongly suggest that “SNI” refers to either the number seven or seventh.

40. Prayer to reconcile oneself with the energy of the sign of Aries.

Prayers 40–51 assume the start of the year coinciding with the spring equinox, the traditional start of the astrological year. A supplicant can combine these prayers during a single petition, if desired, if there is concern as to whether this prayer accurately covers the entirety of the celestial directions.

52. Prayer to initiate and reconcile oneself with the sephirah of Malkuth.

The Enochian Aethyrs are proposed to be related to the Kabbalistic system of sephiroth (singular “sephirah”), or spheres of consciousness. These spheres are organized on the Tree of Life, a map of these spheres as mythically related to the tree of the same name in Genesis. Specifically, they have been proposed to be a way to initiate into the sephirah of Binah (Hebrew for “Understanding”; see Louv, 2018). Although initiations into these spheres can occur in different orders, the typical initiatory path which Kabbalistic supplicants follow is: Malkuth (“Kingdom,” the concrete & physical world), Yesod (“Foundation,” the realm of the unconscious & dreams), Hod, (“Splendor,” the realm of the rational intellect), Netzach (“Eternity,” and, in extended form, “Victory,” the realm of love—which “conquers all”), Tiphareth (“Beauty,” the realm of the core of one’s heart, of one’s true will, and compassion), Geburah (“Strength,” the realm of strictness, separation, and severity), and Chesed (“Mercy,” the realm of lovingkindness and philanthropy). It seemed wise to me to compose prayers to God for proper initiation into these prior seven sephirah, before one embarks on scrying the Aethyrs (the final two sephiroth of Chokmah and Kether are treated differently in later chapters). Therefore, Prayers XLI through XLVII are composed to establish these seven lower sephiroth.

Note: for group prayers, substitute “ZURAAHIA” for “ZURAAHUS.”

Prior to prayer 52, you may consider petitioning the angel SANDALPHON (Archangel of Malkuth) by chanting its name ten times.

NAH OD IEH IAD, LAVA ZURAAHUS: ODO CICLE QAA, OD OZAZMA PLAPLI IADNAMAD OD LANSH DE AQLO OBLOC DE AQLO ADOHI.

Glorious and merciful God, fervently do I/we pray: open the mysteries of Thy Creation, and make us partakers of the pure knowledge and power of Your garland of Your Kingdom.

53. Prayer to initiate and reconcile oneself with the sephirah of Yesod.

Prior to this prayer, you may consider petitioning the angels GABRIEL (Archangel of Yesod), LEVANAEL and BLUMAZA (Enochian angelic king of the moon) by chanting each of their names nine times:

NAH OD IEH IAD, LAVA ZURAAHUS: ODO CICLE QAA, OD OZAZMA PLAPLI IADNAMAD OD LANSH DE AQLO OBLOC DE AQLO LASKO.

Glorious and merciful God, fervently do I pray: open the mysteries of Thy Creation, and make us partakers of the pure knowledge and power of Your garland of Your Strong Foundation.

54. Prayer to initiate and reconcile oneself with the sephirah of Hod.

Prior to this prayer, you may consider petitioning the angels MICHAEL (Archangel of Hod), CORABIEL, and BNASPOL (“Beh-nahss-pole,” Enochian angelic king of Mercury, which rules Hod) by chanting each of their names eight times:

NAH OD IEH IAD, LAVA ZURAAHUS: ODO CICLE QAA, OD OZAZMA PLAPLI IADNAMAD OD LANSH DE AQLO OBLOC DE AQLO LUCIFTIAS.

Glorious and merciful God, fervently do I pray: open the mysteries of Thy Creation, and make us partakers of the pure knowledge and power of Your garland of Your Brightness.

55. Prayer to initiate and reconcile oneself with the sephirah of Netzach.

Prior to this prayer, you may consider petitioning the angels HANIEL (Archangel of Netzach), NOGAHEL, BALIGON, (angelic king of Venus, which rules Netzach) by chanting each of their names seven times:

NAH OD IEH IAD, LAVA ZURAAHUS: ODO CICLE QAA, OD OZAZMA PLAPLI IADNAMAD OD LANSH DE AQLO OBLOC DE AQLO TOHA.

Glorious and merciful God, fervently do I/we pray: open the mysteries of Thy Creation, and make us partakers of the pure knowledge and power of your garland of Triumph.

56. Prayer to initiate and reconcile oneself with the sephirah of Tiphareth.

This prayer may also be useful in obtaining Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel. Prior to this prayer, you may consider petitioning the angels RAPHAEL, (Archangel of Tiphareth), SEMELIEL and BOBOGEL (angelic king of the Sun, which rules Tiphareth), as well as the name of your Holy Guardian Angel (if known) by chanting each of their names six times:

NAH OD IEH IAD, LAVA ZURAAHUS: BAGLE AQLO GALSAGEN, ODO CICLE QAA, OD OZAZMA PLAPLI IADNAMAD OD LANSH DE AQLO OBLOC DE AQLO TURBS.

Glorious and merciful God, fervently do I/we pray: because of Thy divine power creating the angel of the sun, open the mysteries of Thy Creation, and make us partakers of pure knowledge and power of your garland of Beauty.

57. Prayer to initiate and reconcile oneself with the sephirah of Geburah.

Prior to this prayer, you may consider petitioning the angels CUMAEL (“Kuh-ma-el”; archangel of Geburah), MADIMIEL, and BABALEL (angelic king of Mars) by chanting each of their names five times:

NAH OD IEH IAD, LAVA ZURAAHUS: ODO CICLE QAA, OD OZAZMA PLAPLI IADNAMAD OD LANSH DE AQLO OBLOC DE AQLO UMPLIF.

Glorious and merciful God, fervently do I/we pray: open the mysteries of Thy Creation, and make us partakers of the pure knowledge and power of your garland of Strength.

58. Prayer to initiate and reconcile oneself with the sephirah of Chesed.

Prior to this prayer, you may consider petitioning the angels (T)ZADKIEL (archangel of Chesed), ZEDEKIEL, and BYNEPOR (angelic king of Jupiter, which rules Chesed), by chanting each of their names four times.

NAH OD IEH IAD, LAVA ZURAAHUS: ODO CICLE QAA, OD OZAZMA PLAPLI IADNAMAD OD LANSH DE AQLO OBLOC DE AQLO RIT.

Glorious and merciful God, fervently do I/we pray: open the mysteries of Thy Creation, and make us partakers of the pure knowledge and power of your garland of Mercy.

59 through 65. Prayers to initiate and reconcile oneself with the seven lower sephirah within the sephirah of Malkuth.

In composing the previous prayers for proper initiation into the prior seven sephirah, I noticed that Enochian lends itself to prayers in accordance with the Jewish tradition of “Counting of the Omer,” which involves the counting 50 days taking place between Passover and Shavuot (Leviticus 23:16), one day more than seven weeks. In Kabbalistic tradition, the seven days within these seven weeks can be used to reflect upon the aforementioned seven lowest sephiroth (Malkuth (“Kingdom”) through Chesed (“Mercy”)), as divided into seven sephirothic aspects (i.e., Malkuth of Malkuth; Yesod of Malkuth, Hod of Malkuth,etc.,all the way through Chesed within Chesed). These represent 49 of the 50 gates of Binah, with the final gate being one opened by God unto the supplicant. Therefore, as a supplementary means to one’s working with the Aethyrs, I have composed these prayers for initiations into each of these sephiroth-within-sephiroth, which, if the supplicant desires, can be done in conjunction with the actual Counting of the Omer. For example, instead of ending the prayer with “ADOHI” (Malkuth), as with Prayer 41, she or he instead would end the prayer with “ADOHI DE ADOHI” (Malkuth of Malkuth), continuing through the appropriate prayer for each of the 49 days. On the 50th and final day, one would simply remain reflective and receptive to God’s presence. Such a practice may supplement the supplicant’s scrying of the Enochian Aethyrs.

As with the previous prayers, you may wish to call upon the angels, archangels and governors of the main sephirah being used (e.g., for 59 through 65, use Sandalphon). For advanced work, consider substituting the archangel names of the realm of Briah for Tiphareth, Geburah, and Chesed ONLY (Metatron, Tharshish, & Tzadkiel, respectively); do NOT use this technique for the earlier prayers relating to these sephiroth; advanced study of the Tree of Life correspondences will illuminate the reason for this distinction.

108. Prayer to properly focus oneself on spiritual and earthly matters (L-EHNB).

Should one act on spiritual matters or mundane? Heavenly or earthly? This prayer beseeches the Divine reconciliation of the two in the mind of the supplicant.

IEH IADBALTOH, COMMAH SOR DE OZIEN, NOIB, DE UNAL AZIEN, LASDI, OOANOAN, OI MONONS, DAZI, OD GIGIPAH CAOSGO, A AQLO ADOHI–MOMAO.

Merciful God of Righteousness, truss together the actions of my own hand, yea, of these hands, feet, eyes, this heart, head, and living breath of the earth, with your kingdom–crown.

109. Prayer for happiness (L).

Whereas Prayer 97 asks God for proper focus of one’s actions, this prayer asks God for reconciling one’s thoughts to the divine, bringing joy to the supplicant.

NAH OD IEH IAD, LAVA ZURAAHUS: DLUGAR K’ OL OOANOAN, MONONS, OD MANIN DS PURAN OD SOLPETH A MOZOD, OMP, ANANAEL OD MOMAO K’ AQLO QAAN: NOIB, PIRIPSAX OD CAOSG TA DS AQLO COMMAH TA L. JAIDA, DRIX MOZOD!

Glorious and merciful God, I fervently pray: give unto me eyes, a heart, and mind which see and listen with understanding and secret wisdom unto Thy Creation: yea, The Heavens and The Earth as One. Highest God, bring down Divine joy!

110. Prayer for awareness of many aspects of wisdom.

This prayer requests that God link the supplicant’s mind to that of the laws that have been given unto prior magi. This assumes a universalism to these religions which may not be acceptable to all adherents of the faith. Therefore, this prayer should be interpreted with caution. The belief systems selected for this prayer include, respectively: Holographic Theism in general, Judaism, Taoism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Thelema, and Islam, and the Egyptian worship of Amun (as interpreted by Aleister Crowley) and the principles of PRIAZIOR.

NAH IAD, DLUGAR K’OL MANIN AZIA ILSI OD AQLO MONONS, “GAHOACHMA,” L: NOIB, IADOIAS. OZAZM OL L PLAPLI: “GEMEGANZA”; MONASKI DS IPAMIS CAMLIAX TA OMAOAS: NOIB, AZIA T-ITA-T-I††† OD SOR-OQ-LRING-DOALIM; NACRO; OD AZIA OVOARS-A-ZNA; OD AZIA PRIAZIOR* OD AZIA OLPIRT-COMMAN* OD AZIA PRONOA.

Glorious God give unto me a mind like unto Thee and Thy heart, “I am that I am,” the One: yea, the Eternal God. Make me one of the partakers of “Thy Will Be Done”†; the great name which cannot be spoken as a name††: yea, like unto “It is as it is” ††† and action-except-stirring-up-of-sin (i.e., sin-as-mistake)††††; renewal; like unto a Center-in-Motion‡; and like unto those that increase* and light-bridges* and like unto love*||.

†The will of God additionally interpreted as The Tao, which can also be actively partaken of by the supplicant (as in Thelema).

††cf. Lao Tze: “The name that can be named is not the eternal name.”

†††An attempt to translate the Taoist concept of Tzu Jan.

††††An attempt to translate the Taoist concept of Wu Wei, action without exertion, rendered as “stirring up,” specifically using the Enochian word of “stirring up” associated with sin (“sin” itself being taken as mistaken action, in this case, one with exertion).

‡An attempt to translate the Buddhist concept of “ANATTA.”

||1 John 4:8: “Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love”; The Book of the Law (I:57): “Love is the law, love under will.”

*These are neo-Enochian words and should be interpreted with caution.

111. Prayer to allow evolution of the heart in concert with the universe.

Thus far there have been 110 prayers, but the 111th prayer is indeed the most special. If you feel called to pray, but aren’t sure which prayer to use, this is the best of all prayers to return to. Eagle-eyed (or bat-eared!) supplicants may notice that the phrase for “all is one” (“TON I eL”) sounds like a Hebrew angel, and indeed, in Hebrew, this appears to mean “Favor of God.”  I believe this angelic name to have been revealed as a result of the composition of this prayer.

JAIDA** OD MAAH**: AQLO LOAGAETH COMMAH TON. GRU OI/UNAL MONONS, NOAN MAD, OD eL—NOIB, DRALCOM*—A TON (BAGLE TON I eL**), FAFEN MONONS PAAOX A ALMADAR, OVOARS POROMA*.

Highest and hidden God: your speech [literally “speech of God”] trusseth together all. Cause this/these heart(s) to become pure, and one—yea, united—with all (for all is one), to the intent that heart remains in the place of purity, the center of the secret sun of God which giveth understanding.

*Neo-Enochian words, which should be interpreted with caution.

**If desired, substitute encoded versions of these words and phrases: “ZZZDZ” (Zod-Zod-Zoh-Dee-Zod), “LZZD” (eL-Zod-Zoh-Dee), & “ZDLZL” (Zoh-Dee-eL-Zod-eL) for JAIDA, MAAH, & “TON I eL,” respectively.

A More Universal Grounding Meditation: Heart of the Root Chakra Technique

It occurred to me that with things kind of feeling wobbly within my circle of friends, it might help to have a more advanced grounding meditation. The truth is, no matter how much we ground in the present moment, there’s always going to be a bit of precariousness to the security we feel within that present moment. Moments feed into other moments, and the only constant is change.

What that means for us is that we need a different way to feel stable, and the work to be done is more of a heart-level. Yet we still ultimately want security, so this fundamentally seems more like a root chakra matter. So, combining these two ideas, one technique you might try is visualizing each of your chakras as having seven sub-chakras within them: crown of the crown, third eye of the crown, etc., all the way to the root of the root. Of these 49 sub-chakras, focus on the heart of the root chakra. Imagine it relaxing and feeling softer, and you can come to realize that kindness, acceptance, and openness to the world in all of its odd changes is a foundation (root) for security can be helpful to you, just as focusing on the basics. Of course, do these in the right order: food should be the number one priority if you’re starving! But over the long term, ignoring one’s heart when it comes to security will be unsatisfactory and leave a nagging feeling that some security is missing, which will never be filled with more things.

Video on this technique is here. Enjoy!

Basic Grounding Meditation

I often refer to the basics of spiritual practices, and one of these is a basic grounding meditation. There’s not much to it, but it’s important for intermediate and advanced practitioners to remember to return to the present moment, one’s present body, and one’s immediate environment. It’s also good to remember that “heaven” (psyche, soul, etc.) is always intimately linked with earth, just as samsara is to nirvana. The practice of grounding one’s awareness should not be overlooked.

To give an idea of what grounding looks like, I have created a basic grounding meditation on YouTube here. Enjoy, and good luck!

Three common problems with online designs of the SDA

I mentioned this on the Praxis Behind the Obscure podcast, but it deserves attention for those of you who may be making you own Sigillum Dei Aemeth. Some of the online designs are incorrect.

The first and probably most important issue is the inclusion of the y/14 cell at the bottom of the outer ring. This is probably most problematic because not only did the Archangel Michael directly tell Dee elsewhere in the diaries to fix it, but also because this causes the sum of the outer ring plus one (which was to be added as directed by Michael) to add up to 440, not 441. 441 is equivalent to the word “Aemeth” or “truth,” while 440 is equivalent to “dead.”

The next problem is that the angel name Ized is sometimes listed as Izad. Review DuQuette’s Enochian Vision Magick to see how the angel names are derived from the associated table.

Finally, the letter Z to the left of the top of the pentagram should actually be an S, for the same reason as mentioned above. Dee apparently replaced the S with a Z based on phonetics, something he did elsewhere at least marginally at one point in his diaries.

Have I mentioned how indebted I am to the Phergoph site? You should check it out.

Overview Video & Enochian Working: Zodiacal Table & Lamen

I received the zodiacal lamen I ordered today, and took the rest of the day off to get started working with it. Some quick observations:

  1. The energy of the zodiacal table & lamen is subtler and more ethereal.
  2. I recommend saying the names of the letters around the zodiacal table 12 times each, not 7.
  3. I made a little video explaining the table and lamen and its uses.

Enjoy!

Bridging Buddhism and Enochian, Part 6: Considering the Pure Lands

Before I get into my analysis of the Pure Lands, let me note how this is related to Enochian in my mind. Mainly, the concept of Pure Lands remind me of the Enochian word pibliar, which means “places of comfort.” Pibliar itself is striking to me, for why have such a different word for heaven, unless it is not about heaven? Pibliar appears in the seventh spoken Enochian call, the translation of which is quite lovely:

“The east is a house of virgins singing praises amongst the flames of the First Glory; wherein the Lord hath opened His Mouth, and they become 28 living dwellings in whom the strength of men rejoiceth and they are appareled with ornaments of brightness such as work wonders on all creatures. Whose kingdoms and continuance are as the Third and Fourth; strong towers and places of comfort, the seats of mercy and continuance. O you servants of mercy, move, appear, sing praises unto the Creator, and be mighty amongst us. For to this remembrance is given power and our strength waxeth strong in our Comforter.”

I’ll digress to note the here the astrological, kabbalistic, and numerological implications: there’s a clear reference to the 28 lunar mansions (“28 living dwellings…appareled with ornaments of brightness [stars]”), and the implication of the moon (“waxeth”). The ordering of the dyads would suggest that the Third or the number 3 relates to strong towers, a seat of mercy, while the Fourth or the number 4 suggests places of comfort and a seat of continuance–but a clear reading of the text suggests a switch of significations, which should instead be as follows: 3, strong towers, a seat of continuance; and 4, places of comfort, seat of mercy. This corresponds well with 3 as Binah/Understanding and 4/Chesed/Mercy.

As I mentioned: I digress. To the analysis: in Buddhism, pure lands or buddha-fields are reminiscent of an actual location or place. Indeed, the Buddha Amitabha’s pure land of Sukhavati is described as millions of Buddha lands to the west, whereas other Buddhas’ pure lands also have directions: Aksobhya’s pure land of Abhirati to the east, Ratnasambhava’s pure land of Srimat to the south, and Amoghasiddhi’s pure land of Karmaprasiddhi/Prakuta of the north. Vairocana hosts Akanistha-Ghanavyuha. Note that “millions of Buddha lands to the west” (I’ve read in some sources “west of earth”) suggests a continuum of what is extruded out–presumably from Earth–and that this itself is reminiscent of both the celestial sphere of astrology, but also the Sambhogakaya or “body of enjoyment.”

Thus, we have the Earth (or other physical worlds) as the place of the actual bodies of Buddhas, or Nirmanakayas, the extrusion or reflection of these into Sambhogakayas and perhaps a similar extrusion of pure lands (which resemble metaphorical “fixed stars” mentioned by my friend Cody P.), and finally a Dharmakaya, which is an inconceivable aspect of being a Buddha. This makes the physical world very important, for we have a means of experiencing or even integrating all pure lands at once. To that end, as practitioners, it may be worthwhile to not only attempt to travel or project astrally to a pure land, but also to consider using the technique (from what I loosely “Hermetic Kabbalah”) of pathworking (i.e., finding paths from one Pure Land to another). The latter will likely help the seeker discover more about their own particular set of “fixed stars” which could guide and inform the particular Sambhogakaya they can develop.

Relating the Dharmakaya to Enochian, it reminds me of the phrase from Hermeticism (specifically Book of the 24 Philosophers) which I found referenced here: “God is an infinite sphere, the center of which is everywhere, the circumference nowhere.” To that I’ll add that for me, the Divine must also have the Buddha nature.

Bridging Buddhism and Enochian, Part 5: The Matter of Error

There’s a lot of unspoken tropes in culture in the U.S. (where I live), but they are apparent with even the simplest of analysis. Good vs. Evil, right vs. wrong, inclusion vs. exclusion, collective vs. the individual. Americans tend to polarize these into simplistic terms, and one must remember that we have sophisticated minds which can interpret these along a continuum. Nonetheless, so much hinges on correct understanding of the terms, or we may find our narratives lost; finding this correct understanding, we can begin to operate from Wisdom.

I’ve been binging and re-binging Buddhist lectures and trying to make sense of what I learn. One term that I wanted to linger on for this post was the concept of “wrong view.” It’s a term that is used in Buddhism to suggest that, “Hey, your perspective here is what’s going to cause problems,” and these problems include how one lives one’s life, how well one will progress in one’s practice, and the like. That word “wrong” doesn’t carry with it moral implications in the sense of a root evil. Instead, it’s simply not correct: a mistake.

I’ve been reflecting about how Christianity hinges on sin, which is so intimately connected in Christian thinking to evil. Really, I’ve come to think of this view as mistaken. Sin really means “mistake.” We all make mistakes, and usually it’s some incorrect perspective that has caused us to make mistakes. Of course, sometimes these mistakes will work against our own best interests, or against animals, or against another person, or against nature.

At the same time, it’s important to realize that mistakes are part of ourselves, part of nature, part of our orientation towards others. For this reason, mistakenness and sin are normal. We live with a steady difference between who we are and what we do in the moment compared to who we realize ourselves to be later. This difference, and the discovery of our mistakes, is part of life. I do not consider this to be evil at all. It is actually quite good, for it allows growth. I also consider this tendency to be part of the Divine; it is this Heart which is reflected out, so that the Divine may grow, also. So, we should accept and welcome our failings, while of course steadily working and probing ways to rectify, within ourselves and with each other, to allow for better growth with time.

Once this attitude shift takes place, Christianity and Buddhism will be speaking much more of the same language.
