Thoth, The Hierophant

A Chapter in the Life of Thoth

“I behold it, pale as the silk of Jaffa. Moonstruck, it floats like the thousand-petaled lotus in an airy sea. Amidst the starry place therein each pillar doth abide, one matched upon another as mastiffs of stone laced with crystal fingers of silvered lightening. Adujahra, Mountain of the Moon, thou art full of majesty, as the Queen of Night whose hair of midnight stars is undone before the King of the Sun.” - Thoth Raismes

Since the days of Lemuria the mountain of Adujahra in the land now known as the Himalayas of Tibet, was considered by many to be the most sacred place on Earth. ‘Adujahra’ means ‘Mountain of the Moon,’ for indeed it shone at night as if alive within an inner flame. It later became the inspiration for Mount Meru, the mythic holy mountain at the center of the world. Adujahra no longer exists in this dimension. Like several other sacred places on the Earth, it could be said that the Mountain of the Moon has ascended into another strata of reality. However, from a different perspective sacred sites such as Adujahra did not ascend, rather the rest of the planet moved away from its glory, fading into lower realms of consciousness.

It was in the valley by the same name nestled in the folds of Mount Adujahra’s embrace, that Tiirna, who would later be named Raismes of Aphra, was born. The valley graced Mount Adujahra’s yielding lap as a coverlet of emerald and lapis. The weather was much warmer in that region before the time of the Atlantean Deluge, and its thick grasses were hardy in the thin air. The valley lay in a volcanic crater at the base of the mountain. Mount Adujahra was the most prominent remaining vestige of a former mountain, by then mostly vulcanized into ridges circling the crater. In the center of the valley was Lake Nimmi, named after the Goddess Nimmi who, according to legend, cast her mirror down to Earth when she could no longer bear to behold her own beauty within it and not share the vision with the world. In the Adujahra Valley, dwellings dotted the coves and plains, sturdy ancestors of the llama grazed the slopes and beautiful exotic birds pirouetted from branch to branch in the dense groves of megwa trees. In the midst of this thriving existence was a temple city, inclined near the deep cobalt waters of Nimmi, forming a geometric arc upon the terraces of Mount Adujahra. The name of the holy city was Amurana, meaning ‘angel’s eye.’

The sacred geometry of Amurana placed all buildings in a golden mean spiral, with the innermost temples forming a ten-petaled lotus in the center of the spiral. Each temple of the lotus represented 100 heartbeats of the Universal Mother, and thus the ten petal-temples became the 1,000 petals of Her Divine Flower. Each one of the petal-temples held in equipoise, its 100 heartbeats in an essence of spirit, which was defined thusly:

The Ten Petal-Temples:

Pirsahna - Blue Temple of Harmony

Oujaiveta - Green Temple of Fertility and Abundance

Xset - Red Temple of Creation

Maijah - Yellow Temple of Joy

Illeau - Violet Temple of Transmutation

Surameru - White Temple of Purity

Kanef - Temple of Robes (where sacred robes and vestments were not only woven, but special mantrams and prayers were chanted into each weave)

Euratis - Temple of Wings (communion with Angelic Beings)

Baccha - Temple of Manna (creation of and sacred ceremony with Prima Matra or the first pure essence-matter, the ‘white-gold powder of the alchemists)

Vishinu - Temple of the Eternal Flame (service to an ‘eternal flame’ lit from the flame brought from Orion by the Sun Bow Clan)

Representing the ‘Heart of the Blossom,’ were two more temples in the very center of the lotus. They were the Temple of the Sun (golden) and the Temple of the Moon (silver).

Outside the golden spiral of Amurana, high on a precipice of Mount Adujahra, was the Palace of Icara. I use the word ‘palace,’ not in the standard sense of an elaborate royal dwelling. It was the home and spiritual center of the Oracle of the Mountain, Usmonjhe. You will read more about this great sage in the next chapter, but let us now explore the Palace of Icara, which would be the major retreat and nurturing vessel for Tiirna in his youth.

Icara was made of a crystalline stone which had been alchemically transformed, that is, its structure had been atomically re-arranged. It was still stone, and yet it vibrated at a greater rate of Light resonance. The stones of Icara gave off a soft rose-white glow. When struck, even with a light wooden stick, a tone was released from the power of the stone. Within the heights of its mountain perch, Icara was played like a harp by the enchantment of the winds so sweetly in faint heartsong that the listener almost felt, rather than heard the tender psalms.

The whole of the palace was built as a labyrinth spiral, much along the lines of the famous labyrinth design within Chartres Cathedral in France. Despite its maze-like form, there were many orifices for Light and air, even in the innermost chambers, that could be adjusted at various levels of circulation.

Within the crystal stone palace the chambers were simply decorated in a style that today might resemble a composition of Tibetan, American Indian and Greek. It was then known as a prominent Tungzhe setting. ‘Tungzhe’ was the name of a culture that inhabited the mountain reaches of what is now India and Tibet. They were the racial mix of several star races, Atlantean, and more ancient strains of Lemurian.

In the center of Icara, above the innermost chamber, was a small spherical room with a skylight opening as a window to the stars. In this room burned a perpetual flame, which, like the blaze in the Temple of the Eternal Flame, had been lit by the Fire of the Sun Bow Clan from Orion. While the Flame in the Temple in Amurana was for the People, the smaller one at Icara was for the most sacred of ceremonies and soul journeying. The inner spiritual being of Tiirna, and later Raismes of Aphra, would gain strength and purpose through his wedding to this Flame. All Eternal Flames lit by the Fire from Orion, were known as Izmami, the Light of Immortality.

Just above Icara was a great stone table of the same transmuted rock, upon which sacred ceremonies of Sun, Moon and Stars were conducted. It was upon this ‘Altar Place of the Sun,’ the Sunis Aphra, that the babe Tiirna would be dedicated and later in manhood, be named ‘Mouth of the Sun of the Altar Place’(Raismes of Aphra).

From Icara there was a slender path that led further up the mountain, past the Sunis Aphra, ending at the summit. Few people trod the path to the top for it was a treacherous climb, with snow and windy gales year-around. However, just below the summit was a cavern opening. Only High Initiates of the Sun & Moon entered this holy cave, dedicated to the sacred marriage of the solar and lunar attributes in man. The cavern was known as the Cave of Mythara. Mythara was an archetype or god-power of the Sun and Moon. Centuries later, Mythara would become singularly a solar being, given the name of ‘Mithras.’ Such archetypal ‘god-powers’ as Mythara / Mithras are genuine energies which have been either enhanced or entirely created through the repetition of focus from many minds. These thought entities can either be sacred or profane. Some of the more ancient ones created by minds of divine ordinance are especially close to the ‘Holy Thought in the Mind of God.’ The Cave of Mythara was a Mithric portal for Raismes of Aphra in his final initiations at Icara.

Adujahra, Mountain of the Moon, Keeper of the Altar of the Sun, shown from an inner Light manifested through ages of focused harmonics within its innermost reaches. Deep inside the Mount was a cathedral chamber, a combination of natural and manmade shaping. This was the Chamber of the Holy Tone, where singers of both male and female created perpetual choirs harmonically designed to permeate and surround the mountain and valley with an aura of Light and Power. The perpetual choirs and work of the many temples greatly aided the spiritual dynamic of the entire planetary grid.

This then, was the birthplace of Tiirna. Here he would grow into manhood and as Raismes, receive the ordination of an Illuminari, a master of the Order of the Illumined. The Order of the Illumined or Illuminaris, was a spiritual world order having been established in the pre-Adamic Age of the Sun Bow Clan. All sacred orders and religions on Earth and within the sacred hollow (inner earth) stem from and are precipitated by the Illuminaris.
