This rite may be performed as a sacrament of invocation to raise a particular manifestation of energy for inspiration, divination or communion with particular domains of consciousness. It may be performed as an act of enchantment in which spells are projected to modify physical reality. It may also be performed to consecrate magical instruments, or to evoke entities for later use.
The rite consists of six parts:
The preparation will include the making ready of the site, the erection of circles and triangles, the placing of instruments and weapons, and the administration of any chemical or botanical elixirs that may be employed to heighten gnosis. Banishing rituals, meditation, circle dances, and other forms of preparatory gnosis may be used to prepare the participants.
2. Statement of Intent:
The statement of intent must be formulated as simply, forcefully, and precisely as possible. Holding aloft any material basis that is to be used in the rite, the officiating priest/priestess intones the words, "It is our will_______________", adding whatever the aim of the rite is to be. The material basis may be some foodstuff for subsequent consecration and consumption. It may be a sigil with which to cast an enchantment or a talisman, amulet, or fetish for consecration. In the event that the basis is to be a sexual elixir, then the priest or priestess stands empty-handed for the sacrifice is to be of their own bodies.
3. Invocation of Chaos:
The Invocation of Chaos is effected by a barbarous incantation delivered in conjunction with gnostic methods of the operator's choice. The supreme animadversion to Chaos is given below, together with a translation which is as accurate as possible within the primitive logic structure of the English language. Drawing the Star of Chaos in the air above the circle and assisted by the visualisations of the same by the other participants, the priest/priestess begins:
OL - SONUF - VAROSAGAI - GOHU
I - Reign - Over You - Saith
VOUINA - VABZIR - DE - TEHOM - QUADMONAH
The Dragon - Eagle - of - the Primal Chaos
ZIR - ILE - IAIDA - DAYES PRAF - ELILA
I Am - the First - the Highest - That Live In - the First Aether
ZIRDO - KIAFI - CAOSAGO - MOSPELEH - TELOCH
I Am - the Terror - of the Earth - the Horns - of Death
PANPIRA - MALPIRGAY - CAOSAGI
Pouring Down - the Fires of Life - On the Earth
ZAZAS ZAZAS NASATANATA ZAZAS
This last line cannot be translated
The eight-rayed Star of Chaos radiant is visualised above the circle throughout, and sacrifices of incenses, blood, or sexual elixirs may be made.
4. Invocation of Baphomet:
The priest or priestess who is to assume the manifestation of Baphomet attires and visualizes himself in the traditional god-form of the power source. Baphomet, as the representation of the terrestrial life-current, appears as a horned theriomorphic deity of the androgynous, winged, reptilian, mammalian, and human aspect. The priest/priestess arouses within himself a resurgence of the Chi, or Kundalini, or Sacred Firesnake, as it is variously known. Other participants may assist by delivering such incantations as the incomparable "Hymn to Pan", by projecting a visualization of the averse pentagram into the priest/priestess, and if need be, by administering the Osculum Infame. (This socalled obscene kiss to the devil's hindquarters has been much misunderstood.
All that is required is that one breathes onto the peritoneum, the space between the genitals and the anus - inside of which the kundalini awaits to be aroused.) The priest/priestess then completes the invocation with the Aeonic Litany:
IN THE FIRST AEON, I WAS THE GREAT SPIRIT
IN THE SECOND AEON, MEN KNEW ME AS THE HORNED GOD, PANGENITOR PANPHAGE
IN THE THIRD AEON, I WAS THE DARK ONE THE DEVIL
IN THE FOURTH AEON, MEN KNOW ME NOT, FOR I AM THE HIDDEN ONE
IN THIS NEW AEON, I APPEAR BEFORE YOU AS BAPHOMET
THE GOD BEFORE ALL GODS WHO SHALL ENDURE TO THE END OF THE EARTH
The priest/priestess as Baphomet now takes any material basis being used as a focus for the rite and consecrates it to the purpose of the ritual by whatever means the god wills in him, perhaps by speech, by gesture, or by some unexpected means.
5. The Oath:
The oath marks the culmination of the rite. Holding the material basis aloft, the priest/priestess and all participants affirm "THIS IS MY WILL"
If the basis be a sacrament, it is then consumed. If it is a sigil, it is destroyed or hidden, while a consecrated object is covered and concealed for later use.
6. The Closing:
The closing may necessitate an exorcism of the priest/priestess if the trance or possession is deep. Any Baphomet symbols and paraphernalia are removed, and an upright pentagram is drawn over the priest/priestess. A full facial lustration with cold water is administered, and he is called forth by his ordinary name until he responds. A final banishing closes this rite.
