Spelled variously as Cabiri, Kabeiroi, Kabirs, etc.
"The eight Kabirs, those powerful, semitic, ineffable, and terribly divine gods (who were later worshiped by the Greeks and Romans, and whose principal sanctuary was found always in Samothrace) are intimately related with the holy eight, with the sacred symbol of the infinite. The eight Kabirs are the children of Ephestus or Vulcan and an adorable daughter of Proteus. They were born from the sacred fire (that manifests itself within the terrible profundities of the Earth) by the forging action of Proteus upon that universal substance that naturally has the property of taking any form. These eight Kabirs are the fundamental intelligences of this Nature. They are the extraordinary regents of the great mysteries of life and death. According to a very ancient esoteric tradition, one of those eight Kabirs was assassinated by one of his brothers; however, later on he was resuscitated with the help of Hermes. This reminds us of the symbolic death and resurrection of Hiram, Osiris, and Jesus that must be comprehended in depth by the M. M." - Samael Aun Weor, The Narrow Way
"Therefore, these eight brethren are the rectors of Nature, the generators of the vital phenomena, the regulators of all the fundamental activities of this planetary organism upon which we live." —Samael Aun Weor, Cosmic Teachings of a Lama
