When in the sanctum sanctorum of the Temple of Solomon, the High Priest chanted the terrific mantra I.A.O., the drums of the temple sounded in order to prevent the profane from hearing the sublime I.A.O.

The great Master Huiracocha stated the following in The Gnostic Church:

“Diodorus said: Know ye that among all Gods the highest is I.A.O.”

“Hades is in the winter, Zeus begins in spring, Helios in the summer, and in autumn I.A.O. enters into activity, working constantly.”

I.A.O. is Jovis Pater, Jupiter, whom the Jews unjustly call Javhe.  

I.A.O. offers the substantial wine of life, while Jupiter is a servant of the sun.

  • I. Ignis (fire, Soul)
  • A. Aqua (water, substance)
  • O. Origo (cause, air, origin)

Huiracocha states: “I.A.O. is the name of God among Gnostics .”  The Divine Spirit is symbolized by the vowel O, which is the eternal circle.  The letter I symbolizes the Inner Being of each human being, but both are intermingled with the letter A, as a point of support.  This is the powerful mantra or magic word that when practicing Sexual Magic the man must chant along with his priestess spouse.

The sound of the three powerful vowels must be prolonged like this: IIIIIIIIIII, AAAAAAAAAA, OOOOOOOOOO, that is to say, extending the sound of each vowel.  The air is inhaled to fill the lungs, then one exhales it.  One inhales counting to twenty, holds the air counting to twenty, and then exhales vocalizing the letter I [editor’s note: the I is pronounced like a long e, as in the word bee].  When exhaling one also counts to twenty.  Repeat the same procedure for the letter A and then continue with the letter O.  Do this seven times.  After that, continue with the powerful archaic mantras: Kawlakaw, Sawlasaw, Zeesar.

Kawlakaw makes the human spirit vibrate.

Sawlasaw vibrates the earthly human personality.

Zeesar makes the Astral body of the human being vibrate.  These are very ancient mantras.

The Divine Savior of the world chanted the powerful sacred mantra of fire along with his priestess when practicing with her in the pyramid of Kefren. This mantra is INRI.  This is how the Lord of All Adoration practiced in Egypt with his Isis.  He combined this mantra with the five vowels IEOUA.

INRI, ENRE, ONRO, UNRU, ANRA.  The first is for clairvoyance.  The second is for the magic ear.  The third is for the heart chakra, the center of intuition.  The fourth is for the solar plexus or the telepathic center.  The fifth is for the pulmonary chakras that grant the power to remember past incarnations.

The mantra INRI and its four derivatives applicable to the chakras are vocalized by dividing them into two syllables and then pronouncing the sound of each one of its four magic letters.  With these mantras we carry the sexual fire to the chakras during the practices of Sexual Magic.

Returning now to the I.A.O., which as we have already stated is the name of God among Gnostics , we would like to add the following:

  • The vowel I makes the pineal gland and the embryo of the Soul that every human being has incarnated vibrate.  
  • The vowel A places the physical vehicle in a high state of vibration.
  • The formidable O makes the gonads vibrate, marvelously transmuting the seminal liquor, until this is transformed into Christic energy that victoriously ascends up to the chalice (brain).

The Gospel of St. John commences praising the Word.  

In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The same was in the beginning with God.

All things were made by Him and without Him was not anything made that was made.  

In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  

And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness comprehended it not.  - Gospel of St. John 1:1-5

The word John can be broken down into the five vowels in the following way: IEOUA, IEOUAN (John).  The entire Gospel of John is the Gospel of the Word.

There are people who want to disconnect the Divine Word from Sexual Magic.  This is absurd.  No one can incarnate the Word excluding Sexual Magic.  Jesus, who is the incarnation of the Word itself, Jesus, who is the Word itself made flesh, taught Sexual Magic, precisely in the Gospel of Saint John.  It is necessary to now study Chapter 3 of the Gospel of Saint John from verse one to twenty-one.  Behold...

nicodemus

There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:

The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto Him, "Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him."

Jesus answered and said unto him, "Verily, verily I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God."

Behold, dear reader, the former statement is a sexual problem.  To be born has been and will always be a sexual problem.  No one can be born of theories.  We have never met a person born of a theory or a hypothesis.  To be born is not a question of beliefs...  If we could be born simply by believing in the Gospels, then why have not all the students of the Bible been born?  Being born is not a matter of believing or not believing.  No child is born from beliefs.  They are born through the sexual act.  This is a sexual matter.  Nicodemus did not know about the great Arcanum.  Therefore, he responded in his ignorance saying:  

"How can man be born when he is old?  Can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?"

Jesus answered, "Verily verily I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God."

It is necessary for you, dear reader, to know that the water of the Gospel is the semen itself, and that the Spirit is the fire.  The Son of Man is born from the water and the fire.  This is an absolutely sexual statement.

That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.  

Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

It is necessary that the master be born within us.

The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one who is born of the Spirit…

Indeed, the one who is born of the Spirit shines for a moment and later disappears among the multitudes.  The multitudes cannot see the Super-Man.  The Super-Man becomes invisible for the multitudes.  Just as the chrysalis cannot see the butterfly when it flies, likewise the common human being loses sight of the Super-Man.  Nicodemus did not understand any of this; thus, he answered him and said:

"How can these things be?"

Jesus answered and said unto him, "Art thou master of Israel, and knowest not these things?"

Indeed, Nicodemus knew the sacred scriptures because he was a Rabbi. However, he did not know Sexual Magic because Nicodemus was not an initiate.  Jesus continued, saying:  

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.

Jesus gave testimony of what he knew, of what he had seen, and of what he had experienced in himself, because Jesus practiced Sexual Magic with a vestal of the Pyramid of Kefren.  This is how He was born.  This is how He prepared himself in order to incarnate the Christ.  In such a way He was able to incarnate the Christ in the Jordan River.

We all know that after leaving Egypt Jesus travelled to India, Tibet, Persia etc., and after returning to the Holy Land he received the Venustic Initiation in the Jordan River.  When John baptized Master Jesus, then the Christ entered the Soul of the Master.

The Christ became human.  Jesus became Divine.  The outcome of this divine and human mixture is that which is called the Son of Man (the Super-Man).

If Jesus would not have practiced Sexual Magic in Egypt, he would not have been able to incarnate the Christ.  He would have been a great master but not the living model of the Super-Man.  

“If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?”  

With this statement the great Master emphasizes that he is talking about earthly things, about the practice of Sexual Magic.  Without this one cannot be born.  If people do not believe in earthly things, how can they believe in heavenly things?

“And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but He that came down from heaven, even the Son of Man which is in heaven.” 

The “I” cannot ascend to heaven because it did not come down from heaven.

The “I” is Satan and must inevitably be dissolved.  This is the Law.

Speaking about the sacred serpent, the great master said:

“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up.” 

We must lift up the serpent on the staff as Moses did in the wilderness.  This is a matter of Sexual Magic because the Kundalini can only be lifted up with Sexual Magic.

Thus, only in this way can we lift up the Son of Man, the Super-Man within ourselves.  

…The Son of Man must be lifted up, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have eternal life.

The rational homunculus, mistakenly called human being, still does not have the authentic Astral, Mental, and Causal vehicles.  Therefore, he is really just a phantom.

It is necessary to practice Sexual Magic in order to live the path of the Perfect Matrimony in order to engender the Christ-astral, Christ-mind and the Christ-causal.  

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

He that believeth on Him is not condemned; he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

We affirm that true faith and belief is shown with facts.  Anyone who does not believe in Sexual Magic cannot be born even though he says “I believe in the Son of God.”  Faith without deeds is dead.  Anyone who does not believe in the Sexual Magic taught by Jesus to Nicodemus does not believe in the Son of God.  These people are lost.  

And this is the condemnation, that the Light is come into the world, and men loved Darkness rather than Light; because their deeds were evil.

For every one that doeth evil hateth the Light (hates Sexual Magic), neither cometh to the Light, lest his deeds should be reproved, (discussed).

But he who doeth Truth cometh to the Light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are brought in God.

All of this is quoted from the Holy Gospel of John.  One must be born in all the planes.  

What does a poor man or woman filled with theories do when practicing exercises, etc., without having been born in the Astral?   

What good does it do to work with the mind if they still do not have the Mental body?

Therefore, the first thing that a human being must do is to create his internal vehicles and then practice whatever he wants and study whatever he wants.  Thus, we must first create the internal vehicles in order to have the right to incarnate the Soul, and later the Word.

When the legitimate Astral body is born, we become immortal in the world of 24 laws (the lunar world).

When the authentic Mental body is born, we immortalize ourselves in the world of 12 laws (the world of Mercury or of the Mind).

When the true Causal vehicle is born, we acquire immortality in the world of 6 laws (the Causal World or world of Venus).  We incarnate our human soul when we reach this height.  Thus, we become true human beings.

These Christic vehicles are born through sex.  This is a sexual matter.  As above so below.  If the physical body is born through sex, also the superior vehicles are born through sex.

Whosoever engenders his Christic Vehicles incarnates his Soul and thus speaks the Word of Gold.  This is the language of power that the human being spoke on the ancient Earth called Arcadia, where the Children of Fire were worshipped.  This is the language that the entire universe speaks, a divine language of tremendous power.  This was the mysterious language in which the Angel of Babylon wrote, “Mene, Mene, Tehel Upharsin” at the famous banquet of Belshazzar.  The same night the sentence was carried out, Babylon was destroyed, and the king died.

A great deal has been stated about the universal language.  However, we can speak it only when we incarnate the Soul, when the Kundalini flourishes on our fertile lips made Word.  When humanity left paradise as a result of spilling the semen, it forgot the divine language that flows majestically like a river of gold through the thick jungle of the Sun.  The roots of all languages correspond to the divine primitive language. Sexual Magic is the only path that exists in order to once again speak the golden language. A close relationship exists between the sexual organs and the creative larynx.  In the old schools of mysteries, initiates were forbidden to tell of the antediluvian catastrophes for fear of evoking them and bringing them once again into manifestation.  The old hierophants knew that there was an intimate relationship between the elements of Nature and the Word.

The book entitled Logos Mantra Magic by the great Gnostic Rosicrucian Master Dr. Arnold Krumm-Heller is a true jewel of occult wisdom. The great master concludes his book by saying the following:  “In ancient times, a school of mysteries existed in which there was a ring, upon which the engraved image of Iris and Serapis united by a snake appeared.”  Dr. Krumm-Heller continues: “Here I synthesize all that which I have stated in this book.”

As well, in the eighth lesson of his Zodiacal Course, Dr. Krumm-Heller wrote a paragraph that scandalized many know-it-alls.  After the master’s death they tried to adulterate this paragraph in their own way, according to their own theories.  Now lets transcribe the paragraph exactly as Master Huiracocha wrote it:

“Instead of the coitus which reaches the orgasm, sweet caresses, amorous phrases and delicate touching should be lavished reflectively, keeping the mind constantly separated from animal sexuality, sustaining the purest spirituality as if the act were a true religious ceremony.

“Nevertheless, the man can and should introduce the penis and keep it inside the feminine sex to bring about a divine sensation upon both, full of joy, that can last for hours, withdrawing it at the moment the orgasm is near to avoid the ejaculation of semen.  In this way, they will have a greater desire to caress each other each time.

“This may be repeated as many times as desired without ever becoming tiresome. On the contrary, it is the Magic Key to daily rejuvenation, keeping the body healthy and prolonging life, because this constant magnetization is a fountain of health.

“We know that in ordinary magnetism, the magnetizer communicates fluids to the subject and if the first has those forces developed, he can heal the second.  The transmission of magnetic fluids is ordinarily done through the hands or through the eyes, but it is necessary to say that there is no greater and more powerful conductor, a thousand times more powerful, a thousand times superior to others, than the virile member and the vulva as receptive organs.

“If many people practice this, they spread force and success in their surroundings for all those who come into commercial or social contact with them. But in the act of sublime, divine magnetization to which we are referring, both man and woman reciprocally magnetize each other, the one being for the other as a musical instrument which, when plucked, gives off or emits prodigious sounds of mysterious and sweet harmonies.  The strings of that instrument are spread all over the body, and it is the lips and fingers that make them vibrate, provided that the utmost purity presides over the act.  This is what makes us magicians in that supreme moment.” This is the end of the statement of Dr. Krumm-Heller.  

Thus, this is the path of Initiation.  One reaches the incarnation of the Word through this path.

We may be Rosicrucian, Theosophist, or Spiritualist students.  We may practice Yoga , and there is no doubt that in all this there are marvelous works and magnificent esoteric practices; but if we do not practice Sexual Magic, we will not be able to create the Christ-astral, the Christ-mental and the Christ-will vehicles.  Without Sexual Magic we cannot be born again.  Practice what you will, study in any school that you like.  Pray in the temple that pleases you the most, but practice Sexual Magic.  Live the path of the Perfect Matrimony. We are not against any holy religion, school, order, or sect. All of these sacred institutions are necessary. Nevertheless, we advise you to live the path of the Perfect Matrimony.  The Perfect Matrimony is not opposed to any religious way of life or to the esoteric practices of Holy Yoga .  

The Gnostic Movement is made up of people from all religions, schools, lodges, sects, orders, etc.

Beloved reader, remember the Sacred Jewel with its I.A.O.  I.A.O. is hidden within GAIO (GAIUS). Therefore, work with I.A.O.

The priest, the master of every Lodge, the disciple of Yoga , everyone will be able to be born, will be able to preserve their true Chastity, if they practice Sexual Magic.

Blessed be I.A.O.; blessed be Sexual Magic; blessed be the Perfect Matrimony.  Within Sexual Magic we find the synthesis of all the religions, schools, orders and yogas.  

Every system for Realization of the Self without Sexual Magic is incomplete, therefore, it is useless.

Christ and Sexual Magic constitute the supreme practical synthesis of all religions.
