Nightly Ritual Progression

Devil Prayer Rug

 

During one of our online discussions, the talk of the Nightly Rituals came up.  These are found in our workbook titled Ahrimani Enlightenment.  To maintain the privacy of our member he will be known as George.  This is the conversation:

 

George, been watching your posts. Please tell us your experiences with the nightly rituals. Obviously be selective with certain aspects. Also talk about any paranormal events, if any. To make it easiest, section it off like the nightlies are. Thank you, and we would appreciate it.

Hello,  I will attempt to give you what you asked for, but it may be difficult to explain, at times. You must understand that I am and was before finding the way of Ahriman, a National Socialist. I realize that may seem unimportant, but it isn’t. So let us begin there. I was following a form of Satanism that combined Spiritual Satanism and Laveyan, although I was never atheist. The first couple of weeks into the nightlys I started having vivid dreams. I dreamt of women that were uncomonly friendly towards me. I felt something different about these women and it was revealed to me that they were, indeed, druj. Their words, not mine. I was then, as I do now, have a little trouble retaining the mythology and history of this religion. I’m torn between studies of ancient Iran and furthering my knowledge of what National Socialism truly stands for, not the mainstream bullshit we all know. I came to the point in my meditations where we ask Father Ahriman to reveal our personal guardian. I did. In moments, and I hope it’s exceptable to reveal the name here, the name Baalberith entered my mind. When I asked for a confirmation the air around me changed. I can’t explain exactly how. It felt thicker, difficult to breath.

I saw images in my mind that were like from one f those kalidascopes from the seventies. I realized that Baalberith had entered the chamber and confirmed his being my personal druj. I was thinkng about cooling it off a bit from my National Socialist convictions and later brought this to Ahriman and Baalberith. But within three days people started approaching me, on line and off, about the subject. People wanted to be friends and “pick my brain”, so to speak, as I can speak about National Socialism with some authority. I then asked, through ritual, was I supposed to continue with my drive towards NS, as I truly feel passionate about this. In a dream, and it was too cloudy to describe here, I was told that I was led to this path, even before Ahriman, that Ahriman knew of me since I was young. (Allow me to add right here that I am in no way advocating National Socialism to this group or any member here. It is therght path for me. I’m not saying it is for everyone, by no means.) Anyway, I am now about six months into the nightlies and I’m using the strobes and mirrors, now. I can still feel the presences every now and then but haven’t dreamt in a couple of weeks. I don’t know wether any of this was what you were looking for, but there it is.

Its your experience and how things are occurring for you. Do feel as the internal changes, the external changes as well? Has doing this strengthen you?

Definitely! I can’t explain how I’ve changed internally. It’s just different. I have a friend at work who is female and likes deep conversations. Without my revealing my spiritual convictions, of course, she said in one of our very deep and personal conversations that she could see me in a hooded black robe reciting chants to Satan. I laughed so hard. I am a normal looking fellow, or I thought. She wondered why I found this so funny. It was then that I trusted her enough to reveal my faith in Ahriman.She went pale for a few seconds and then we had a good laugh. Empathic, I think she may be.

As far as strengthening me, yes, I feel more confident like I actually have purpose, if that makes any sense.

 Cool, so in your opinion, are the nightly rituals helping you?

 Most definitely! And I can add here, I feel as though I was led to tyhe Church Of Ahriman, like it was predestined, of sorts.

Awesome, if I may, with holding your name. Use this conversation in our public blog?

Feel free, brother. I’d be honored. Hope I could answer your questions with some satisfaction.

Its perfect, its your ride and its unique to each person. I hope others ask you questions about your experience. I also hope it inspires others to start or finish what they already started. Thank you

Quite welcome. Call on me any time.

 

All I can say, the proof is in the pudding.  People using the tools of the Ahrimanic Religion to better themselves and enrich their lives.  This is the internal purpose of the Church of Ahriman.  To help you understand, this member is about 6 months into the nightly rituals and he has risen above the petty fear and garbage that most people carry around.

Damned and Misunderstood

Imbedded in the first amendment, American citizens are guaranteed the constitutional right to exercise their religion of choice. Despite this right, many religious groups in the U.S. are still subject to religious persecution by the masses. With Christianity as the dominating religion in the United States, many other religious groups in the country may feel their rights are threatened as a minority. Oklahoma, located in the buckle of the Bible belt, is a prime example of a state that is biased against non-Christian ideals. While Oklahoma is home to many other religions such as Islam, Judaism, and Hinduism, perhaps one of the more misunderstood religions is what society refers to as “Satanism”.
The media industry has transformed this religion into a smokescreen of an angry, mean-spirited, devil-worshiping cult. Trying not to let this stereotype cloud my judgment, I contacted Adam B. Daniels, Head Minister of Oklahoma’s Dakhma of Angra Mainyu “Church of Ahriman”. Daniels promptly responded to my e-mail telling me that because I was not a member of the church, he could only help me so much, but graciously redirected me to his wife, Mobed Kelsey Daniels. After interviewing Mobed Kelsey, I quickly learned that the term “Satanist” was not only incorrect, but offensive terminology. Kelsey explained, “Though the word Devil came from the word Daeva, devil is connected with western paganism deemed evil by the Catholic Church. Therefore it is an inaccurate statement. Ahrimanist or Daeva worshiper is correct terminology”(Mobed Kelsey Daniels). In other words, the Satan, or the devil, that society portrays Ahrimanists to worship is that which the Catholic Church has illustrated. Instead the god in whom they worship is Angra Mainyu, an anti-cosmic god of destruction and counter-creation.
Throughout the interview I began to learn that this particular group of Ahrimanists deviate from most Satanic groups that follow the teaching of Anton LaVey. While LaVey groups tend to focus on “the devil” and act as a negative counter expression to Christianity, Ahrimanism more closely relates to the teachings of Zoroastrianism. Zoroastrians identify Ahriman as the deity of destruction. In order for a change to happen, chaos must occur to destroy that which needs to be destroyed and create what needs to be instituted in the world. According to Ahrimanism, other religions will not be able to succeed, as they demand order from their followers. This enslavement does not allow for creation to occur. Mobed Kelsey justifies the reason she is drawn toward what Ahriman has to offer is because, through his destruction, the god exemplifies free will. Angra Mainyu brings freedom to people by allowing them to have their own set of morals. A strong mentality in Ahrimanism is that “self preservation is the highest law”(Mobed Kelsey Daniels). This means that there is no particular set of commandments or sins that all people are expected to abide by. Mobed Kelsey elaborates by saying, “Whatever your morals are. We advise people not to go beyond their morals, but test and push them. Again, it is a personal issue with each individual”(Mobed Kelsey Daniels).
From talking with Mobed Kelsey Daniels, it is clear that Ahrimanist’s intentions are not as sinister as society portrays them. Ahrimanism has a similar goal to other religions, which is to better the world with it’s religion. What sets apart Ahrimanism from other religions, however, is the outlet in which they use to attain that goal. While other religions use outlets such as ministry or meditation, Ahrimanists use the channel of destruction to make room for that which is new to come. After pealing back the layers from a religion that may appear frightening at first glance, it’s apparent that in addition to it’s public goal and the freedom it offers individuals from popular culture, Ahrimanism is a forward thinking, progressive religion.

We were contacted by a student from the University of Oklahoma. We are always educating society and here is another example…These are her questions and answers.

1. Tell me about yourself?…where you are from, what you like to do in your free time, or anything interesting about yourself?

1. I am a 35 year old male. Born in Cook County, IL.  Due to my parents lifestyle we didn’t stay in one spot very long. We lived in various areas in and out of Chicago and then on to Texas, Florida, and back to Chicago. After, issues in Chicago, I moved back to Oklahoma. My major accomplishments are as stands: graduated high school in 1999, earned my 6th degree black belt in Aikido, earned my black belt in Judo, attained associates degree in psychology in 2008, and I am an Ordained Satanic Priest in 2010.  In 2011 established the Church of Ahriman in both Texas and Oklahoma. I have self-published 4 books and 1 of these books is being published through Dorrence Publishing this year.        Aside from martial arts and every day life I enjoy weight lifting, studying mythology, history, and religion. With obvious tendencies to study the “eastern” aspects, particularly Japanese and Persian cultures. I also enjoy researching the war and war culture of these 2 different societies. 

 

2. What religion are you? (Is there a politically correct term? Are there terms society refers to your religion that you would find offensive?)

2. The religion I created is titled Traditional Ahrimanism.  Society refers to us as Satanists or Devil Worshipers. The offense to be called Satanist is simple.  The term Satan is a title nothing more.  Ahriman is an anti-cosmic god of destruction and counter-creation. Though the word Devil came from the word Daeva, devil is connected with western paganism deemed evil by the Catholic church. Therefore it is an inaccurate statement. Ahrimanist or Daeva worshiper is a correct terminology.

 

3. What do you like best/least about your religion?

3.  The best part of Traditional Ahrimanism is it is a way to find spiritual and religious freedom off the person by allowing the practitioner and the God Ahriman to be on equal footing and working with one another instead of the traditional concept of servitude. This allows for freedom of the individual to be expressed in a personal way that allows for these dark (animal) nature to be expressed without the guilt of any predisposed sin. We at the Church of Ahriman are teachers to it’s members to maintain their actions within the societal laws. The least favorite part of Traditional Ahrimanism is that people are required to do it themselves. They must think for themselves, do the rituals for themselves, and set their own goals. the clergy is around for classes, and group rituals are conducted but they are required to do their I study and previously said self sustaining aspects mentioned earlier. 

 

4. Were you brought up in your religion or a different religion? If so why did you stay in it? If not when/where were you introduced at a later date?

4. I was raised in a variety of different sects of Christianity. At 8 years of age a minister made an attempt to “lay hands on me”. I was unaware of the game and refused to be pushed over onto the floor. Thus it was deemed that I was possessed by the Devil. My erosion of Christianity began there. Due to certain life events I decided to read the Satanic Bible by Anton LaVey. This resonated with me. Then I quickly discovered that “Satanism” was nothing more than an online facade. Thus recreating the deal and starting my own offline church.

5. What drew you towards this religion?

5. One statement, “self preservation is the highest law.”

 

6. Have you had any personal experiences that reaffirmed your faith?

6. I cannot remember rituals that I conduct. So, I have created a habit of recording them. We have too many still pics, video, and full spectrum video that shows unexplained phenomenon. There are too many instances that cause and effect have occurred before, during, and after ritual. Every time things come together in my life it is religious affirmation.

 

7. Is there a difference between your everyday life and your religious life?

7. Yes there is quite a difference and there are many similarities as well.  The practice of my religion in my ritual chamber is uninhibited by the rules and folly of man.  This allows for the principles of the religion to be taught to my subconscious mind undiluted. There is where the darkest and most forbidden aspects of myself can be expressed and explored without guilt of judgement. This allows me to use these religious ideals in my everyday life with the ability to be mindful and premeditated in my goals and affairs.
8. Are you married? If you were not married, would you marry outside of your religion?
8. Yes I am married. Most likely I would not marry outside of the LHP.  The RHP follows are too forceful and lack the ability to compromise with religious orientation.
9. In the Amish religion, teens go through a period of “Rumspringa” (a time to experience the world outside of their religion) before they can be accepted into the church. This is because it is thought that children are not capable of making such a life binding decision. Is there a particular age you must reach before being officially confirmed into your religion or church?
9. Yes, 18  and 21 to practice group ritual.
10. What is the most important day that you celebrate in your faith?
10. One’s birthday is the most important to the individual.  The church itself is the first day of winter, the cycle of destruction and death was created by the Daeva to vex the animals and the plants.

 

11. What is your religion’s death practices?…do you do burials, cremations, or something entirely different?

11. To either be buried in the ground or cremated is the way. Burial allows for the druj to use our dead matter as fuel and spiritual weapons against order. Cremation allows for pollution of fire, thus polluting the Haevens, thus pollution of the leader to corruption.

 

12. What should man expect after death, according to your religion?

12.  Man chooses to work for order or chaos in their life. Those who choose order should have their dead body consumed by the ahuras (birds) and then have their spirit consumed by the holy fire of atar. Thus returning and becoming a part of Ahura Mazda. Should a person choose chaos, their body should be given to the death daevas. The spirit shall descend into the watery abyss of “Hell”.  At this point they are free to amass whatever in Hell til they are sent back to the physical reality, or reincarnation. In the Al-Jiwah,, it is made clear that we can be sent back 7 times or as many times are required.

 

13.Are there any dietary restrictions? (similar to “Keeping Kosher”)?

13. No, but consumption of meat is encouraged.

 

14. What do you believe your religion has to offer the world?

14. My religion offers mankind freedom from popular beliefs and forces them to take responsibility for themselves and their actions. It weeds out the weak and celebrates the strong.

 

15. Do you practice religion on a daily or weekly basis? In what ways?

15. I practice daily through manthra, meditation, and creating material for the church. We have weekly meetings for classes and ritual.

 

16. Are there any cardinal “sins” or “taboos”?

16.  Whatever your morals are. We advise people not to go beyond their morals, but test and push them. Again, it is a personal issue with each individual.

 

17. What does your religion say man’s purpose on earth is?

17. The souls of man decide who will rule the “kingdom”. Ahura Mazda needs to replenish his power by consumption of souls. Angra Mainyu frees the souls of man from Ahura Mazda to weaken him. Also, the more souls corrupted but still consumed by Ahura Mazda, changes him. Thus mans purpose is freedom of self. Thus freedom for all, to include the Devil.

 

18. Is man inherently good, inherently evil, or something else entirely?

18. Man is an animal. He chooses which side he works for. We believe, the sons of Adam, are Melek Taus’s chosen children. These people will have adeptness in the sinister ways. Regardless, each man chooses, and will deal with that choice accordingly. Both Ahura and Druj will battle with each man, woman, and child to bring the balance over to their perspective side.  So people can be influenced by wither side, some are weaker to the wants of order and some are weaker to the seduction of chaos.

Apaosa

d

Apaosa:
Is a Dew. He comes in the appearance of a large black horse. This dew causes drought. Thirst can be used to inspire one to do all kinds of things.

Apaosa (Apa-urta) is a demon who brings drought and aridity. He rides on a black, bald horse. Eventually he was defeated by the god Tistrya. He is equal to the Indian evil spirit Vritra.

In a hymn of the Avesta (incorporated by Ferdowsi, with due acknowledgement, in the Shahnameh), Tishtrya is involved in a cosmic struggle against the drought-bringing demon Apaosha. According to the myth, in the form of a pure white horse the god did battle with the demon who, in contrast, had assumed the form of a terrifying black horse. Apaosa soon gained the upper hand over Tishtrya, who was weakened from the lack of sufficient prayers and sacrifices from humankind. The yazata proceeded to call upon the Creator Ahura Mazda, who himself then intervened by offering a sacrifice to the overwhelmed god. Infused with the power brought by this sacrifice, Tishtrya was able to overcome Apaosa, and his rains were able to flow to the parched fields and pastures unabated by drought. This story serves to underscore the importance of votive offerings and sacrifice in religious tradition.

Remember, the side of light and order is founded on pain and blood through sacrifice. This is another fine example.
