Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0692728198, Paperback)At last, a book about Babalon that is actually a book of Magick! Mystery Babalon: the Bhaktic and Ecstatic Rites of Babalon is an incredibly ambitious book designed for both the life-long devotee and occasional practitioner. People of all types, preferences and persuasions will find useful tools here to help them in their quest for union with Babalon and Her energy. You may pursue a Bhaktic Path which is devotional and ritualistic in its nature, or you may pursue the Ecstatic Path which is sensual and carnal in its Rites. And of course many people pursue both paths, as the choice is yours according to your own Will. Within these pages you will find sound information and practical guidance from a Priestess of Babalon who has practiced the Orphetic Mysteries for almost three decades. Learn how to set up your Shrine, how to prepare yourself for the Rites, and how to perform them. There are Rites for solo devotees, lovers or small and large groups. Everything has been put at your fingertips to get you started with the ways of Babalon, like no other book before it! Hagia Aureavia has adapted these Rites for the general public from some of those used in her private Temple over the years. Designed for a broader uninitiated audience, these Rites have been made as non-denominational as possible so as to be appealing to people from all backgrounds and inclinations. Within the pages of this large tome you will find five sections. Part 1 is Philosophy & Cosmology which focuses on expounding the ontology and teleology of Babalon and Her Allies, as well as the new (yet in actuality very ancient) philosophy which they divulge to mankind. Part 2 is Preparations for the Shrine and for the Rites. Part 3 are the Invocations, Hymns, Adorations and Prayers which are used throughout the Rites within the book. Part 4 is the Bhaktic Rites of Babalon, which forms the beginning of the heart of the book. Here you will find a bevy of devotional Rites to perform within your Shrine. This includes the Daily and Periodic Rites, Rite of Devotion, the Rite of Convocation, and the Bhaktic Rites of Babalon. Given along with these Devotional Rites to Babalon are the optional Rites to Ra Hoor Khuit. These rites are for those who also feel a calling to the Brother of Babalon, who is the Lord of the Aeon. This includes the daily Adorations of Ra Hoor Khuit are given along with the many Mudras given by the Brotherhood of the Midnight Sun, the Devotional Rites of Ra Hoor Khuit, which are powerful rites utilizing both the Cakes of Light and the Cakes of Life, and for those few brave women who aspire to be concubines to Ra Hoor Khuit as delineated in the third chapter of Liber Legis, there are the Blood Rites of Ra Hoor Khuit. Part 5 is the Ecstatic Rites of Babalon, which forms the complimentary rites to the Bhaktic practices of the previous section. Here, the Balanced Ecstatic Path is explained. Here one is prepared for the incredible bliss of worshiping Babalon through the senses, with details given on how to avoid common pitfalls in the Persona under the influence of such powerful and life-altering energies. This includes the Rite of Sappho, the Rite of Pan, the Rite of the Twin Flame, the Rites of the Holy Whore, the Ecstatic Rites of Babalon and the Hieros Gamos to Babalon. As if this wasn’t enough, the book is rounded out with the Appendices, which cover the world-wide Shrine System initiative, Ophidian Thelema and the Temple of Babalon, the Gematria of the Ophidian Kabbalah, as well as a large Glossary of Concepts which defines many of the obscure terms and concepts used within the text. Mystery Babalon: the Bhaktic and Ecstatic Rites of Babalon is an ambitious book, distilling decades of knowledge and experience down to practical rites which anyone can use. Finally there is a reliable book which gives everything anyone could need to help them on their path of being a Devotee of the Goddess Babalon.
