Old Zoroastrian Monsters Khrastar

While other folks are talking about Fravashis (holy guardian angels) because they are under funded by Thelema, they’ve over looked Old Zoroastrianism.  In fact, their studies are merely surface and are plugged into opposing magical systems that have nothing to do with Zoroastrianism.  Let’s examine a fine example of this.  The creatures or monsters that predate druj are known as Khrafstar.  Per the Old Avesta (pre Zend Avesta) the concept of druj had its roots in these out of time or spiritual mad monsters that plagued the Earth before mankind.  Supposedly, these monsters could be tamed by a magician, then used to do their bidding.  This is where the concept of Djinn and the Lesser Key of Solomon come from.  Thus, the current debate is, was King Yima and Solomon the same figure?

 

Theses monsters, Khrafstars, are mad from the influence of death aka Ahriman.  Once these animals consumed the dead or dead matter (Ahrimani matter) they became infected with the Devil’s maddness.  This weakened these creatures to succume to disease easily.  This is apart of how Zariz became a counter-created Pairaka.  These animals were seen to be between both the Invisible Spirit and Material Worlds.  The infected maddness was a sign or actually brought death, plague, and poison.

As Middle Zoroastiran evolved, so did the actions of the Ahuras and Daevas.  The major switch that occures is the Spiritual becomes more of a war over influence of consciousness.  That both God and the Devil interiorly and exteriorly influence the consciousness of each individual, thus requiring constant monitoring of thoughts, speech, and action.  The Khrafstar gave way to becoming Druj or noxious creatures of the Earth that are under the influnce of Ahriman.  The concept of Druj also expanded into sexual influence lot like a incuccubi or succubus.  The Book of Proper and Impromper makes this down grade concrete in the religion.

 

Do these monsters, these khrafstars still have their evil influence?  Of course they do, Christianity made sure to bring these animal forward with them, as animals in witchcraft and omens.  I know you’ll recognize these guys and their connection to witchcraft.  Middle Zoroastrianism was quite a great tool to write the Malleus Maleficarum.  Check out Proper/Improper and make your own decision.

 

Khrafstar

Flies/Maggots: house, carrion, fruit, disease spreading larva, mosquitoes, locust, lice and fleas.  House flies feed on feces, open sores, sputum, and moist decaying matter (spoiled foods, eggs, and fruit.)  These are symbols of death, disease, pestilence, and corruption.

Ants, termites; meaning carnage, death, and mortis.  Omens of impending evil.

Worms, gnats, cockroaches, caterpillars, bugs were infestations of death or impending death.

Serpents (mortha) are murder, evil, deceit, and choas at the very essence of evil.  Other reptiles are grouped here as well: snakes, crocodiles, alligators, lizards, worm lizards, turtles, and tortoises.

Amphibians, toads, frogs, newts, and salamanders are symbols of heresy, forgery, and unclean spirit.

Rats, mice, and othe infestation causing rodents, foxes and coyotes, are symbols of disease, avarice, greed, and defamed; destructive intelligence as well.

What does that mean to the Wicked Yatus?  It should give some idea of what was considered evil and spiritual.  You see most of these as omens even today, and most are even considered witches’ familiars.  If the evolution is for the Invisible to influence our minds, how is this knowledge worth anything to us?  Simple, they have now become symbols in our minds that speak directly to the subconscious.  You see this in the Hindu God illistrations, animals being used as symbols.

The Daeva too can be seen with certain symbols during meditation.  Its taking in these mental visions into spiritual selves and leaving impressions on our Jiva (spirit) that furthers us toward becoming a living embodiment of the Devil.  The purpose here is to seek Moksa through corruption of our minds, consciousness, and spirit.  Their specific meditative practices to attain this goal, but that is for another time…

Yalda 2016

The longest and darkest night of the year is a time when friends and family gather together to eat, drink and read poetry (especially Hafez) until well after midnight. Fruits and nuts are eaten and pomegranates and watermelons are particularly significant. The red color in these fruits symbolizes the crimson hues of dawn and glow of life. The poems of Divan-e Hafez, which can be found in the bookcases of most Iranian families, are intermingled with peoples’ life and are read or recited during various occasions like this festival and at Nowruz.

In Zoroastrian tradition the longest and darkest night of the year was a particularly inauspicious day, and the practices of what is now known as “Shab-e Chelleh/Yalda” were originally customs intended to protect people from evil (see dews) during that long night,at which time the evil forces of Ahriman were imagined to be at their peak. People were advised to stay awake most of the night, lest misfortune should befall them, and people would then gather in the safety of groups of friends and relatives, share the last remaining fruits from the summer, and find ways to pass the long night together in good company. The next day (i.e. the first day of Dae month) was then a day of celebration, and (at least in the 10th century, as recorded by Al-Biruni), the festival of the first day of Dae month was known as Ḵorram-ruz (joyful day) or Navad-ruz (ninety days [left to Nowruz]).Although the religious significance of the long dark night have been lost, the old traditions of staying up late in the company of friends and family have been retained in Iranian culture to the present day.

A New Mobed!

As the newest Mobed for the Dakhma of Angra Mainyu, I am ecstatic to have finally recieved my ordination this passing month!

People have spoken on how easy it is to get an ordination in these times, buying them off of ad hoc ministry websites, but in doing so they fail to realize several intrinsic factors to the internet ordainment methodology verses joinging a federally recognized 501c3 organization and recieving such an honor. The first thing that I would like to address would be the fact that a United Life Church ordainment is NOT a satanic ordainment, the ULC ministry is a christain ministry which accepts all faith types. It’s ordinations are christain ordinations, while on the other hand the ordination that I have recieved through the Dakhma of Angra Mainyu is a legitimate ordination in the name of the DEVIL. The second point that I’d like to make is that the ULC has no requirements for their ordinations, no structured learning regimen. You pay them, you recieve the ordination. Ours, by compairison however, has very structured requirements. Such as a strict reading regimen, a number of rituals one must preform, media training, and working public events, all in order to prove yourself to the clergy of the Dakhma.

In recieveing this ordination and in being a part of the Dakhma of Angra Mainyu, I have found a new lease on life. A newfound fire has been ignited in me, and this is only the beginning. Worshiping the Devil and working with his Daeva, studying theology and the occult has made me even more prolific. In short, expect more from me. Expect me during the following months. Expect the Dakhma to be even more prolific and expect more public events!!

 

 

Rise Up Thou Father of Us!
