Egyptian ’Seven Gates’ Chakra Ritual

April 9, 2008 at 2:56 pm

 

(from the Egyptian Book of the Dead, also known as The Book of the Master of the Hidden Places)Part of the Egyptian Book of the Dead give details of a ritual called the Seven Gates, in which the name of the initiate was spoken by the priest. This ritual asks the Higher Forces to receive the initiate and admit him or her into the next higher realm.

In the translation that follows below, the names of the gods are replaced with a descriptive title. We kind of assume that the ultimate destination, “the beautiful Hidden Place”, is the blissful feeling of deep meditation. Maybe you would like to enact this ritual on the next flooding of the Nile, or at the rising of Sirius which announces the flood will begin (which is often on or around the Summer Solstice).

GATE ONE: ROOT CENTER

Here begins the Entrance on Light, and of coming forth from and going into the Territory of the Holy Dead, in the beautiful Hidden Place. Homage to Thee, O Guardian of the Hidden Place. O you who make perfected souls to enter into the Temple of Reunion. May you cause the perfected soul of the Reunited One, the seeker [name of Initiate], to be victorious with you in the Temple of Reunion. May he/she hear as you hear; may he/she see as you see. O you who open the way and lay open the paths to perfected souls in the Temple of Reunion, open you the way and lay open the paths to the soul of Reunited [name of Initiate].

RESPONSE:

Homage to thee, O thou who art at the head of the Hidden Place, thou Reunited One. Grant that I/we may arrive in peace in the Hidden Place and that the lords of the Ascent may receive me/us.

GATE TWO: NAVEL CENTER

(Making the Spirit Body to enter into the Upper Gate of the Ascent.)

RESPONSE:

Homage to thee, O thou that dwellest in the Holy Mountain of the Hidden Place. Grant that I/we may arrive in peace in the Hidden Place and that the lords of the Ascent may receive me/us. Entering on Light and living after death. Hail, One shining from the Moon! Hail, One shining from the Moon! Grant that the Reunited {person’s name] may come forth from among those multitudes which are outside; and let him/her be established as a dweller among the citizens of Heaven; and let the Hidden Places be opened unto him/her. And behold, Reunited One, Reunited [person’s name] shall Enter on Light.

GATE THREE: SOLAR PLEXUS CENTER

(Passing over the Celestial Road of the Upper Gate of the Tomb.)

The Resurrected Infinite One, triumphant says: I open out a way over the Watery Abyss which forms a path between the two combatants: Darkness and Light, Evil and Good, Death and Life, Law and Love, Selfish Self and Reunited Self.

RESPONSE:

May a path be made for me whereby I may enter in peace into the beautiful Hidden Place. And may a path be made for me whereby I may enter in and adore the Reunited One, the Lord of Life. Praise to the attuned One when he rises upon the Horizon.

GATE FOUR: HEART CENTER

Here begins the praises and glorifying of coming out from and of going into the glorious Inner World which is in the beautiful Hidden Place. I am Yesterday, the Timeless One. I know Today.

What then is this? It is the Hidden Place wherein were created the souls of the Gods when the Father was leader in the Mountain of the Hidden Place. I know the God who dwells therein.

When then is this? It is the Reunited One.

What then is this? It is the horizon of his Father, the Unmanifested One.

What then is this? It is the cutting off of the corruptible in the body of the Reunited One, the earthly [person’s name]. It is the purification of Reunited [person’s name] on the day of his birth.

RESPONSE:

I pass over the way, I know the head [Crown Center] of the Pool [Navel Center] of the Well of Life.

What then is this? It is the gate, the door; and it is the northern door of the tomb [Crown Center].

Now as concerning the Pool [Navel Center] of the Well of Life, it is he who swims the boat of the Sun; it is the way by which his father, the Unseen One, travels when he goes forth to the Realms of Initiation.

Now the Southern Gate [second chakra] of the Ascent is the gate of the Pillars of He who rises. It is the gate where the god who rises lifts the disc of Heaven. The gate of the north [pineal center] is the gate of the Great God. The northern gate of the Ascent is the leaves (the who hemispheres of the brain) of the door through which the Unmanifested god passes when he goes forth to the Eastern Horizon of Heaven (ie from the back of the head, over the crown of the head, and on to the forehead).

GATE FIVE: THROAT CENTER

(Entering on Light in the Inner World.)

I am Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, the Dweller in Eternity, and I have the power to be born a second time. I am the divine hidden Soul who gives meals unto the citizens of the Inner World, the Beautiful Hidden Place and Heaven. I am the Lord of seekers who are raised up; the Lord who comes forth from out of the unconscious.

RESPONSE:

Hail, Lord of the Shrine which stands in the middle of the earth. He is I, and I am He. Make thou they roads glad for me. Send forth thy light upon me, O Soul unknown, for I am one of those who are about to enter in. Come thou who dwells above the divine Abyss of water. The god who is the Conductor of Souls transports me to the Chamber of Rebirth, and my nurse is the divine, double Lion-God himself, Yesterday and Tomorrow. I am made strong and I come forth like he that forces a way through the gate. “I know the depths” is thy name.

I am he who Enters on Light. The doors of Heaven are opened for me; the doors of earth are opened for me. Hail, thou soul who rises in Heaven. Strengthen thou me according as thou hast strengthened thyself, and show thyself upon earth, O thou that returns and withdraws thyself.

GATE SIX: FOREHEAD (THIRD EYE CENTER)

(Causing the soul to be united to its body in the Inner World.)

The Reunited {person’s name], triumphant, says:

RESPONSE:

Hail, thou god “the bringer”! Hail, thou god “the runner”, who dwells in thy hall! Great God! Grant thou that my soul may come unto me from whosesoever it may be — NOW. [Pause here to receive your soul.]

Hail, ye gods, who make souls to enter into their spiritual bodies. Grant ye that the soul of Reunited {person’s name], triumphant, may come forth before the gods and that it may have peace in the Hidden Place. May it look upon its body and neither perish nor suffer corruption for ever.

The paths which are above me lead to the gateway. Open unto me!

GATE SEVEN: CROWN CENTER

(Entering into the Hall of Double Truth.)

Conductor’s Question:

Who then are thou? Whither goest thou? What is thy name?

RESPONSE:

And they say unto me, who art thou then? And they say unto me, what is thy name?

Come, then, they say, and enter in through the door of this Hall of Double Truth. We will not let thee enter in through us, say the bolts of this door, unless thou tell us our names.

“Tongue of the Balance” of the place of right and truth is your name [pause to allow the opening of the door.).

The heavens are opened, the Earth is opened, the West is opened, the East is opened, the southern half of Heaven is opened, the northern half of Heaven is opened.

ENTERING INTO HEAVEN

The Attuned One lives, the Earth Bound One dies. Sound is he who is the breath, Reunion triumphant.

May those who build up grant that the Reunited {person’s name] shall arrive happily in the Hall of Double Truth. May He Who Makes Reunion to be Secret grant that the Reunited {person’s name] may be a lord of strides in the habitation of the Ascent. And there shall be made an offering by the Reunited {person’s name] when he enters through the hidden pylons.

May the company of the gods who rule over the Hidden Place grant that Reunited {person’s name] shall go in through the secret door of the House of Reunion. And there shall be made an offering by Reunited {person’s name] when he/she shall walk up the Great Staircase.

The Lady of the Hidden Place, might dweller in the funeral mountain, lady of the holy place, receive the Reunited {person’s name]. The Attuned One liveth, the Earth Bound One dies. Sound is he who is reunited triumphantly. — AMEN.

A gift to my lovely readers —

As a special gift to my readers I thought you might enjoy some background music. A terrific writer and geek found these archived radio recordings of the Beatles for a Swedish radio show way back when. He cleaned them up a bit and edited them, and here they are. Five songs in cool condition. So turn up the volume alright already.
