For those who are unfamiliar with the rising underground movement that has progressed publicly since 2008, the purpose of the Mardukite Chamberlains has been to go into the heart of the Babylonian and pre-Babylonian Sumerian traditions and methodologies as well as those which immediately followed or were later strongly influenced by — which has been determined to be far sweeping in both Western Civilization and the East.
When the (Year-1) Mardukite Cycle of the ‘Mardukite Core‘ was first being composed, the “Home Offices” of the Mardukite Research Organization were mainly restricted to work with local individuals in close proximity as well as long-distance associates that had already been acquainted with Mardukite founder, Joshua Free, (or one of his prior ventures). It was not until late 2008, nearly a half-year after the official “founding” and several years from the onset of the vision, that the movement was brought to the general public (via the Internet) under the guise of “Mardukite” for the first time in the contemporary age.
For those who did not have access to the lectures of Joshua Free or access to the “Home Offices” directly (held in the Rocky Mountains at that time), the Internet was a place where the Mardukite Chamberlains could encounter and communicate with the general public, including those interested parties who would later become Chamberlains themselves. The introductory sections, prefaces and tablet descriptions of the various aspects of the original literary cycle were all based on these lectures. Both video (vlog) and literary (blog) posting on the Internet supplemented this for those who were inclined or had access.
Here is an older example from mid-2009.
But the efforts of the ministry for the “teaching” and “sharing” of materials was never intended on being restricted solely to the Internet, while it may be the means in which many who read these words now have come to know the movement. Many have been surprised to find that there are many of those who have been closely aligned to the efforts through the years that do not frequently watch the videos or participate on the network forum – showing that these methods are simply meant to be available for those that need and want such. The “Mardukite” movement has been able to remain free from strict adherence to specific “curriculum” or access to a computer. The movement began in, and will always exist for, the “material underground” that is more dependent on the printed work (aside from the hacker community) and direct personal exchange with others in the movement. It is, of course, the printed word, or more appropriately — etched in clay, words — that have given us substance for research, now, thousands and thousands of years since the Babylonian and Sumerian inception of modern civilization.
The Mardukites have operated and grown with the most ambitious intentions of unearthing and relaying the true and self-honest mysteries of the ancient world and the way they have shaped the beliefs, systems and traditions of today. This modern revival of a Mesopotamian Mystery Tradition grounded in the Anunnaki lore of the ancient Sumerians and the Babylonian traditions, as well as those which were first influenced by these systems – being Egyptian, Persian, Semitic, Assyrian, etc. — is something completely revolutionary for both the “mystical” New Age movement as well as the contemporary practical and experiential pursuit of the undefiled sources of all life, reality and the universe.
WHERE TO BEGIN ???
The original 2009 work is available in its revised and expanded 5th edition Liber-N+L+G+9 anthology as the NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE. For the past several years, stand-alone editions of the Year-1 work remained out of print, but the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press has recently reissued a nostalgia series of the work in four libros installments, reminiscent of the original underground releases from five years ago!
NECRONOMICON (Liber-N) edited by Joshua Free
The debut volume of the Mardukite “Necronomicon” Anunnaki Cycle is known as Liber N, representative of “Necronomicon.” When the Mardukite Chamberlains banded together a contemporary vision of the original “Egypto-Babylonian” or “Mardukite” lore, there was only one other volume (and a well known book at that) that might be correlated to our efforts: the “Simon” Necronomicon. While Simon’s work is liberally bastardized from what the Mardukite Chamberlains would later find to be “more complete” renditions of a similar “tradition” that was directed under the authority of the Priests of Nabu in ancient Babylon (and eventually Egypt) which later served to become the basis of the religious, spiritual and mystical aspects of later global systems. While clearly a part of a larger “cycle” of materials, the parts which reflected what many had already come to expect of a “Necronomicon” (due to the Simonian presentation from the 1970′s) were abridged into Liber N – Necronomicon – also representative of the more general and public lore propagated in Babylon (via the ancient Mardukite tradition) that would have been accessible to even the most casual scholars of religious studies for the period.
NECRONOMICON LITURGY & LORE (Liber-L) edited by Joshua Free The first of several companions to the Mardukite Liber N – Necronomicon is called Liturgy & Lore. Its emphasis is on the reconstruction of a practical “Mardukite Babylonian” tradition in the styling of the Nabu Scribe-Priesthood that worked to compile the ancient tablet cycles. Once completed, the Babylonian system required participants and those who would maintain the legacy. This was conducted by developing an assimilation of the pre-Babylonian Anunnaki Tradition observed under the name of Marduk. Liber L – Liturgy & Lore illustrates the development of the “religion” or “tradition” and its basic “liturgies” and “practices” from Babylonian eyes (without directly emphasizing the blotting out of the pre-Babylonian “Sumerian” designations and tradition). It also illustrates the manner in which the ancient Mardukite tradition began to use the literary cycles (such as those found in Liber N) to effectively align the people into system-fracture using not only literary but also spiritual, religious and political means.
NECRONOMICON GATEKEEPERS GRIMOIRE (Liber-G) edited by Joshua Free
As the others in the cycle, this volume was originally released as a stand-alone title that supplemented the prior two (Liber N & Liber L). The emphasis is on the origins of the mystical and magickal tradition that emerged first in Eridu by Enki (and Marduk as the assistant) during the Sumerian age and then later developed in the systematized form in Babylon under the name (or “names”) of Marduk (with Nabu assisting as the active scribe-priest and magician). From Babylon, humanity’s tradition of system-fracture simply evolved and developed – seemingly separated by semantics, space and time – but, using the same basic structure, sometimes called the Ladder of Lights in the Mardukite tradition. Modern Seekers and practitioners of the Hermetic occult sciences, Druidism of the Tuatha de Dannan (or Tuatha d’Anu), the Solomonic cycle and Semitic or Kabbalistic based magick, the Enochian tradition and/or anyone who has ever “opened” the Watchtowers at their “circle” has connected with the Marduk-current fragmentation! Liber G transliterates the original basis of this as it was set down for the Nabu Priesthood of scribes and magicians. Liber G also introduced the “sigil-glyph” graphics and Arabic names, observed by the modern Mardukite tradition, for the first time.
NECRONOMICON SHADOWS / NOVEM PORTIS (Liber-9) edited by Joshua Free
Limitations in the original method of publishing the Mardukite Chamberlains Cycle of materials required several tablet-chapters to be left out of the original “trilogy.” This was remedied by Liber 9. Chamberlains in the Council of Nabu-Tutu contemplated the materials that remained and how they might be best grouped and presented. While watching one of our favorite motion pictures at the Home Offices, the answer became clear: Nine Gates of the Kingdom of Shadows – the Delomelanicon. While many might not understand or appreciate the reasoning for this (which incidentally, has nothing to do with “nine” gates), the work composed the final piece to make the Necronomicon – Anunnaki Bible possible. The original presentation of Liber 9 was the precursor to the expanded contemporary edition now available from the Mardukites titled: Nine Gates of the Kingdom of Shadows – which also includes Liber R, but does not include Tablet-I from Liber 9 (which is found in the Necronomicon – Anunnaki Bible). Liber 9 is a trans-itionary volume from what is termed the Year 1 – Seeker “curriculum” into the Year 2 – Adept materials (Liber 50, Liber D, Liber R). It draws from Babylon and Sumer, but it’s emphasis is on the original spiritual and religious impressions of the work in post-Babylonian Mesopotamia and surrounding areas, such as the little-known Yezidi Tradition. Parallels also begin to be drawn “officially” between this ancient lore and the present-day interpretations in both fantasy and “New Age” revival efforts concerning themes found in The Ninth Gate, Simonian Necronomicon and the Lovecraftian mythos.
Beyond even all this there is much more for you to discover from the archives of the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press, including the Year-2 ‘Gates of the Necronomicon‘ cycle and our self-study school curriculum in Druidry and Magick!
In this new millennium of uncertainties,
the uncovering of the past will reveal our future.
