In the Palace of Fine Arts in Mexico City, we find an Aztec sculpture of the Bat God. So, let us talk about the Bat God, regardless of the tenebrous slander of ignoramuses who will qualify us as black magicians.

This sculpture is a precious Aztec symbol that represents one of the principal hierarchs of death. The angels of death work under the influence of Saturn. They divest the souls from their physical existence according to the law of karma. Their symbols are the bat, the owl, and the scythe. When they take the soul out of the physical body, they cut the silver cord that unites the soul to the body.

During normal sleep, the soul can travel anywhere and return into the body, thanks to the silver cord.

When the angels of death officiate, they adopt a skeletal appearance. Yet, after their duty, they assume beautiful appearances, since, indeed, they are angels.

The Bat God dwells in the center of Eden. He is an angel of death who has the power to kill and the power to heal.

To invoke the Bat God, the Aztecs performed a chain in the shape of a horseshoe. The human links of the chain were loose —no one in the chain touched the hands or bodies of the others. The ends of the opened horseshoe chain ended on the sides of the altar.

During the rite, filled with respect, the attendants remained squatted and curled up. Then the mantra ISIS was vocalized by everyone in two syllables. They prolonged the sound of each letter as follows, iiiiiii ssssss iiiiiii sssssss; they sustained the sound of each letter as long as possible. The “S” sound is associated with the chirping of the cricket (grasshopper), or with the sound of the rattles of the rattlesnake, which is so sacred among the Aztecs. The “S” sound is the subtle voice that can perform marvels and prodigies. So, the mantra ISIS was vocalized many consecutive times.

Into small braziers, the priest sprinkled an aromatic substance made of seashells that had been reduced to a white powder. Seashells and the sacred fire are internally associated. Thus, small braziers were placed on a table. Two flames, symbols of life and death, burned on the altar. The priest, facing the attendants and after having blessed them with a sharp knife, then summoned the Bat God with his heart. Thus, this is how the Bat God, the remarkable hierarch of death, attended.

This rite can be practiced in the Gnostic sanctuaries.

The Bat God can heal the sick if the law of karma allows it. Any group of people can practice this rite in order to heal gravely sick people. This rite was practiced by the Aztecs in a temple made of solid gold. This temple still exists, yet it is in Jinn state.

The Bat God attends the funeral ordeals of the Arcanum Thirteen. When Jesus arrived at the Arcanum Thirteen, he wandered among the sepulchers of the dead. The terrible specters of death besieged him among the terrors of the horrible night. The cadaverous phantoms of death reminded him of horrible things of the past. Jesus had to overcome the supreme council of the angels of death. The struggle was terrible, but he was victorious; he was fearless. Then, the Ancient of the Days, like a remarkable breath, entered into Jesus. Thus, this is how the Son and the Father became one. This is performed in the Arcanum Thirteen. The same process occurs within everyone who receives the Crown of Life. This belongs to the second initiation of the mysteries of faith and Nature.

"I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight. All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him." – Luke 10:21, 22
