Probationer enters into the grade of Neophyte through the first ray
of light shown in the darkness, being the accomplishment of the
ritual Liber DCLXXI, and this
may be commenced in two ways (The first method is one of a higher
grade guiding the Neophyte through the ritual at the start of the
grade, in which the original ritual is used. The second method is
self-guiding, following the instructions provided, through the
restructured ritual titled: Liber Pyramidos and is accomplished at
an appropriate time during the grade. Either method takes seven
days.). The Neophyte enters into the grade of Zelator through the
change in perception that immerses him or her into the reflection of
the divine, and this through ritual Liber
CXX. This ritual may also be administered in two ways. The
first is one of a higher grade, in the role of the Hierophant,
guiding the four-day ritual. The second is an adaptation, for the
purposes of self-initiation, also taking four-days, accomplishing
the same result, with the complete instructions given herein.
The ritual admitting
the Neophyte into the grade of Zelator is the last ritual of
admittance within the grades of the G.D.
the remaining grades are attained by other means.
It is essential that the Zelator have
one confidant trustworthy with his or her life, and this person need
not be an initiate of any kind, only reliable, and shall hereafter
be referred to as the Attendant. The instructions for the
Attendant are written on parchment and placed on the outside of the
Temple entrance, reading as follows:
to ensure no disturbance until the Aspirant exits the Temple,
and this especially to include noise outside the Temple.

11111�111111 (seventy-eight hours after sealing the Temple)
and waits for the Zelator to emerge, helping to dress
him or her in their Robe at the threshold of the Temple.
The Attendant hosts the celebratory feast and assists the Zelator
until his or her strength returns. The feast is similar to the Feast
of Life, none of the food is from the meat of
any animal. Beverages are wines and wines that foam, being champagne
and dry wine. All this set upon a large table with all invited
guests seated, and the Attendant occupying the seat to the right of

the timing of the ritual to her menstral cycle. If possible, the
ritual should be scheduled within the first fourteen days after

Temple is setup as follows: Altar in the northeast, over which is
the Lamp, and upon which is placed the Sword, Chalice, Holy Oil,
Tuat Ritual Book, Incense being Jasmine and Rose, pottery dish
filled with sweet cakes, and a small flask of holy water. A large,
unframed mirror rests at the back of the Altar that the Zelator may
see his or her reflection therein. A coffin is placed in the middle
of the Temple with the head closest to the West, upon which is
placed the death-shroud. A lidded container is placed in the
southeast (A pottery container with lid is required for all
Ritual Book: containing the opening verses of the ritual, a
perfect reproduction of The Book of the Law, the closing
verses of the ritual, and the pertinent instructions of the ritual.
The book is hand-written on virgin parchment, stitched and bound
with natural materials.]
Cakes: being unlike �Cakes of Light� in their
preparation, yet similar in their usage. Raw whole oats, sprinkled
with sea salt, and mixed with unpasteurized honey. Spread half inch
flat then baked until caramelized. Cooled then cut into small
triangles and placed into the pottery dish.]
long enough to accommodate the complete height of the Zelator.

exclusively with wood pegs and the lid secured by brass hinges. Rich
colored material lain within. Six holes, not more than two inches in
diameter, are drilled on the lid by the feet.]
thin, white cotton wrap of a length sufficient to cover the Zelator
from head to toe.]
Zelator, having thoroughly cleaned him or herself, disrobes and
enters the Temple, which is sealed by the Attendant. Kneeling in
front of the Altar, adding incense until billowing, then with head
bowed speaking the opening verses with the appropriate actions:
art beautiful O Ra, each day; and thy mother Nuit embraceth thee;
thou settest in beauty and thy heart is glad when thou in the
horizon of Manu the mountain of the West; and the Holy ones thereof
rejoice. The hearts of the Lords of the Tuat are glad when thou
sendest forth thy light in Amentet; their two eyes are directed
Zelator raises his or her head locking eyes with their reflection,
press forward to see thee; their hearts rejoice when they see thee
at the end! Thou hearkeneth unto the cries of them that are in the
funeral Chest; thou dost away with their helplessness and drivest
away the evils that are about them."
Zelator raises his or her hands with palms up, saying:
am thy father that lifteth thee up!"
Zelator rises to his or her feet with hands still uplifted,
breathing the deepest breath, saying whilst exhaling:
givest breath to their nostrils, and they take hold of the bows of
thy Bark in the horizon of Manu. Thou art beautiful every day, O Ra!
May thy mother Nuit embrace��victorious!"
Zelator again kneels at the Altar with head bowed, saying:
I who am nothing deny all that I was; I who am nothing affirm all
that I shall be. I swear that as Nuit is about me, as Hadit is
within me, so am I Ra-Hoor-Khuit! And blessing and worship to the
Beast, the prophet of the Lovely Star!"
three chapters of The Book of the Law are read out loud,
followed by silence, which is broken with the knock 1�1�1 upon
the Temple door by the Attendant. The Zelator rises, extinguishing
the Lamp, wrapping him or herself in the death-shroud, laying within
the coffin, closing the lid and assuming the posture of Osiris.
Zelator allows the mind to freely flow without direction, even if
overtaken by sleep (the mind left to its own devices may instigate
overwhelming terror, but this must not be allowed to break the
posture of the Zelator), and stirs not until hearing the BOOMING
KNOCK 1�1�1 1�1�1�1�1
1�1�1 upon the Temple door by the Attendant. Then slowly
lifting the coffin lid, the Zelator exits the coffin as feeling
returns to his or her flesh. Lighting the Lamp, then pacing the
circle eleven times deosil, finishing in front of the Altar locking
eyes with thy reflection, saying (The time required to rising from
the coffin and eventually arrive at the Altar may be substantial.):
have taken possession of the Lord of Darkness; I have rescued the
eye of the Sun. I have brought forth Thoth, and made even the scales
of balance. Mine is the Ureret-Crown; Maat is in my body; its mouths
are of turquoise and rock crystals; my home is among the burrows of
lapis lazuli: I am he that sheddeth light in the darkness: The
darkness is made light and bright by me. I have given light in the
darkness. I have overthrown the devourers. I have sung praises to
them that dwell in the darkness. I have raised up those that wept,
that had hidden their faces and sunk down for sorrow; and they did
look upon me. Hail, for I am He whose voice is silence. I have
opened the way; I have made light the darkness; I am come, having
made an end of the darkness, which hath become light indeed."
Zelator pours a cup of holy water into the Chalice and drinks,
followed by the consuming of a sweet cake. The Zelator awakens the
whirling fire, stimulating the base (sexual organ), which in turn
riseth within the column, and this lasting as long as it can be held
before the release into oblivion (orgasm).
Zelator, having chosen a chapter of The Book of the Law to
memorize, reads the chapter, rests, consumes sweet cakes and sips of
holy water and continues thus (This long interval may include
periods of sleep, and this always within the coffin. Upon each
waking, the eleven revolutions and the accompanying proclamation are
performed. Every other waking moment is spent orally reading and
consuming cakes and water.) until the knock 1�1�1
upon the Temple door by the Attendant, at which the Zelator closes
thee back, depart, get thee back from me, O Apep! Depart from the
divine place of Ra's birth, wherein is the House of thy Terror! I am
Ra, terrible and triumphant. Ra setteth, Ra setteth; Ra is strong at

up the Sword and pacing the circle widdershins:
thee back, Hai, thou impure one, abomination of Asar! Tahuti hath
cut off thine head and I have slain thee and hurled thee utterly
asunder. Get thee back from the Neshuet boat, as with a fair wind Ra
saileth over his heaven.�
the circle widdershins:
thou Scepter of joy! Let me not be hurt of any; nor by man, nor by
gods, nor by the holy dead, nor by the violently slain, nor by them
of old times, nor by any mortal, nor by any human soul!"
the Sword within the Coffin then continuing to circle widdershins
until at last stopping in front of the Altar, touching each body
part in turn saying:

Zelator continues reading the chosen chapter of The Book of the
Law to memorize until the knock 11111�111111 upon the Temple
door by the Attendant, at which he or she rises and exits the
Temple. One day and night of feasting follows.
purpose of the ritual is the immediate changing of the state of the
Zelator, at the beginning of his or her grade, thereby allowing the
complete immersion into the tasks of the grade. The state of the
Zelator is of an inner whirling fire, which builds throughout the
grade, reflecting itself in every aspect of daily life, and reaching
a crescendo at the end of the grade, and this is only resolved by
the passing or failure of the grade test.
