A long time ago, in the profound night of the centuries, there in the continent of Mu or Lemuria, I knew Javhe, the fallen angel who was spoken of by Saturnine of Antioch.
Certainly, Javhe was a venerable Master of the White Brotherhood, a glorious Angel from previous Mahamanvan-taras.
I knew him; I saw him when he was a priest and a warrior among the people of Lemuria. Everyone loved, adored, and venerated him.
The Hierophants of the Purple Race granted him the high honor of using armor, crest, helmet, shield, and sword of pure gold.
This warrior-priest shone as a flame of gold within the thick, sunny jungle.
Upon his symbolic shield, Vulcan had engraved many prophecies and terrible warnings.
Woe! Woe! Woe! This man committed the error of betraying the mysteries of Vulcan.
The Lucifers of that epoch who were floating in the atmosphere of the ancient continent Mu taught him Black Tantra, the Maithuna with the ejaculation of the Ens Seminis.
What is most grave in this matter is that this man, who was so loved and venerated by all the world, allowed himself to be convinced and began to practice this type of pernicious Sexual Magic with certain women.
Therefore, it is clear that the igneous serpent of our magical powers descended through his medullar canal and was projected from his coccyx downwards, thus forming and developing in Javhe’s Astral Body the abominable Kundabuffer Organ.
This is how this Angel fell, and through the ages became converted into a terribly perverse demon.
Many times we have found the priestess-spouse of Javhe in the Superior Worlds; she is an ineffable Angel.
Useless were the efforts of this man to convince his spouse, because she never accepted the Black Tantra of the tenebrous. Therefore, she preferred divorce rather than to enter into the black path.
Javhe is that demon who tempted Jesus the Christ; when Jesus had fasted in the wilderness, this demon tempted him and said:
“If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.”
But he answered and said, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” - Matthew 4:3-4
The sacred scriptures say that Javhe then took Jesus the great Kabir up into a high mountain and tempted him by saying:
“Itababo, all these kingdoms of the world will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.”
Then, the great Master Jesus answered:
“Get thee hence Satan: for it is written, Thou shall worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”
Finally, it is written that Javhe brought Jesus to Jerusalem and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him:
“If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence; for it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee: And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.”
And Jesus answering said unto him, “It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God,” and when Javhe had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.
If we want to learn all the mysteries of the Rune Kaum, then we must now talk about White Tantra.
Those old times of ancient Egypt come into my memory in these moments.
I was an Egyptian initiate during the dynasty of the Pharaoh Kephren, in the sunny country of Khem.
One given sunny afternoon, while walking through the sands of the desert, I passed through a street that had millenary sphinxes on it and arrived at the doors of a pyramid.
The Guardian of the temple, a man with a hieratic and terrible face, was at the threshold. He was threateningly grasping the flaming sword with his dexterous hand. He asked me, “What do you wish?”
I answered, “I am Sus (the supplicant or genuflector) who blindly comes in search of the light.”
“What do you want?”
I answered again, “Light.”
“What do you need?”
I answered anew, “Light.”
I can never forget the next instant, in which the heavy stone door turned upon its own hinges and produced the characteristic sound of the Egypt of the Pharaohs: that profound [note] Do.
Then, the Guardian took me roughly by the hand and put me inside the temple. I was deprived of my tunic and of every metallic object. Then, I was submitted to terrible and frightful ordeals.
When in the ordeal of fire, I had to maintain complete control of myself. It was terrible to walk between two blazing beams of steel which were lit to a red heat.
When in the ordeal of water, I was very close to being devoured by the crocodiles of a deep well.
When in the ordeal of air, I resisted with heroism the hurricane winds, while hanging from a metal ring above the deep of the abyss.
When in the ordeal of earth, I believed I would die between two boulders that were threatening to crush me.
I already had passed through these initiatic ordeals in ancient times, but I had to recapitulate them in order to return onto the straight path from which I had retired.
Next, I was dressed with a tunic of white linen and the Tau Cross was hung from my neck so that it laid upon my chest.
I entered as any neophyte, in spite of being a Bodhisattva. I had to pass through rigorous studies and esoteric disciplines, and when I arrived at the ninth door, the great mysteries of sex were taught to me.
Still I remember those instants in which my Guru, after profound explanations, while fixedly staring at me, told me with a solemn voice, “Uncover your chechere (phallus).”
Then from his lips to my ears, he communicated to me the unutterable secret of the Great Arcanum: the sexual connection of the lingam-yoni without the ejaculation of the Ens Seminis.
Afterwards, he brought a Vestal dressed with a yellow tunic who was filled with an extraordinary beauty.
I performed the work with her; I practiced the Maithuna, White Tantra, in accordance with the instructions of my Master.
“This practice is marvelous,” I said. Thus, I descended into the Ninth Sphere. This is how I performed the Great Work.
The objective was to build the Solar Bodies and to awaken and develop the serpentine fire of occult anatomy.
In that epoch, there were sacred priestesses inside the temples, special Vestals. The celibate male initiates worked with these Vestals. In this day and age such women inside of the Lumisials would not be beneficial... They would be scandalous. Therefore, in this day and age, the Maithuna, Sex Yoga, can only and must only be practiced between husband and wife, within legitimate, constituted marriages.
In the ancient Egypt of the Pharaohs, those who violated their oaths and divulged the Great Arcanum were condemned to the death penalty. Their heads were cut off, their hearts torn out, their bodies cremated, and finally their ashes were thrown to the four winds.
The mysterious Rune K represents with complete precision the priestess woman and also the flaming sword.
The Rune Kaum, with its Kabbalistic six, vibrates with greatest intensity within the sphere of Venus, the planet of love.
Men and women of the world, you must learn that to put into activity that annular serpentine fire in the body of the ascetic is only possible with the Maithuna.
We need with immediate urgency to learn how to wisely manipulate the eternal feminine principle of the solar forces.
We must remember the eagle with a woman’s head, the Sun-Lady, the diamantine foundation of the Great Work of the Father.
First, we must transmute lead into gold, and later, we need to build diamonds of the best quality.
Decidedly, the Rune Rita influences the masculine endocrinal glands, but the Rune Kaum exercises its influence upon the feminine glands.
There exist within the labyrinth of theories many contortionists of Hatha Yoga. Those acrobatic people suppose that they can exclude the Maithuna and Self-realize themselves in depth without the necessity of descending into the Ninth Sphere. Those contortionistic mystics believe that based on such recreation or absurd gymnastics they can build the Solar Bodies and reach the Second Birth.
A certain time ago, I had the high honor of being invited to a secret council of the great White Lodge. So, I must clearly tell the world that Hatha Yoga was disqualified, it was reproved, it was condemned as authentic and legitimate Black Magic of the worst type.
The esoteric rectors of humanity do not accept, they will not ever accept, the absurd frolics of Hatha Yoga.
Whoever truly wants in-depth Self-realization must transmute the sexual hydrogen Si-12 by means of Sex Yoga, in order to build with it the Solar Bodies, the Wedding Garment of the soul.
It is absolutely impossible to incarnate the real Being if we have not previously built the bodies of gold in the forge of the Cyclops.
It is urgent to walk with firmness upon the path of the razor’s edge.
The hour of following the path of the perfect matrimony has arrived. Remember that our motto is Thelema (willpower).
The mysteries of the Rune Kaum gloriously shine in the bottom of the Ark awaiting for the instant for them to be accomplished.
