Supreme Ahriman Explaination

Scan_20170807

 

The Supreme Ahriman symbol has taken on a few changes to help get across the Traditional Ahrimanism’s teachings:

Naga Manasa Pairaka starts at Ahriman’s feet and wraps herself around Him 7 times.  This teaches us that She is the one that brings the Siddhis of Patala through our lower chakras to main Kundalini Chakras.  It also teaches us, in our Kundalini work, we invite Manasa in and blocked Shakti and suppress Shakti from ever coming up the Sushumna.

Naga Manasa Pairaka is in the Naga form showing 5 heads.  On the top of each head is a Jewel that lights up Kakola.  From left to right, the jewels show are red, orange, yellow, green, and blue.  These represent mastery of the 5 tattvas that make up reality.  The spread of the 5 heads shows our version of the Crown Chakra exploding open when Manasa and Ahriman meet in the Third eye Chakra.

Ahriman Stands on the World, representing His stands against Ahura Mazda creation and to show dominion over mankind.  Ahriman’s feet are buzzard’s feet.  This is to show that He can indulge in death eating like an Ahura, with these feet on the world shows He is a world eater.

Ahriman’s wings were changed to dragon wings.  This is remembrance when Ahriman took on the form of the Dragon to cause the Ice Age to kill the life on Earth.  It also deviates Ahriman’s image further away from Zurvan.  It also removes the Vedic symbol of good vs evil of the eagle vs the serpent.

Ahriman has the head of a Lion.  This is a symbol of a royal king and fierce warrior.  Ahriman’s lion head shows the highest level of Manas is attained.  Manas in its widest sense as applied to all the mental powers, intellect, intelligence, understanding, perception, sense, conscience, will, in philosophy. the internal organ or antah-karana of perception and cognition, the faculty or instrument through which thoughts enter or by which objects of sense affect the soul; in this sense manas is always regarded as distinct from atman and Purusha, ‘spirit or soul’ and belonging only to the body.

In Ahriman’s right hand, is the keys to the Kingdom.  This represents the Cosmic bodies of the planets.  This is His cosmic chakras that affect all of the realty by the kingdom.  The Kingdom in the individual minds and the collective subconscious minds aka the weave that keeps reality together.

In Ahriman’s left hand, is the Trisula.  Trisula is the three-pronged sacred weapon of the Hindu deity Shiva. In a general sense, the trisula represents the deity in his three aspects of Creator, Preserver, and Destroyer.  Its three prongs represent the various triplicities in Shaivism (Shiva worship), including the three principles of pasa (Lordship, the divinity of Shiva), pasu (man’s base animal nature), and pasa (bondage, including illusion and karmic debt) central to Shaivite doctrine. The three also represent the three shaktis (powers): will, action, and wisdom, and the three main nadis (energy channels) ida, pingala, and shushumna, which allow kundalini energy to travel through the chakras.  The Damaru Drum on the trisula is Shiva drum:

Shiva is believed to be the progenitor of all sounds, languages, music, and vibrations in creation. The damaru symbolizes his connection with them. The two triangles in the damaru represent the Purusha and Prakrithi, and their union, which results in creation (srushti), movement (chaitanyam), speech (vac), and sounds (shabda). When they are separated, everything comes to a standstill, and the mind lapses into total silence.

Damaru also symbolizes Jiva, the embodied soul, who is helplessly caught in the play of Shiva and moves according to his will and force. He is active as long as Shiva moves his hands but goes into rest when he is withdrawn. The two triangles in the damaru represent the mind and the body, while the chord represents the twin states of birth and death, to which it is bound. Just as the being is bound to the cycle of births and deaths, the damaru is bound to the chord.  We understand that much of Zoroastrian demonizing Shiva was what created the Devil, Ahriman.

Since we are on the topic of Shiva, where does he fit into Traditional Ahrimanism?  Per Zaehner, Naonhaithya (or as we call him Nanshait), is the form of Shiva called Bhairava.  This goes back where Bhairava beheads Brahma’s 5th because Brahma was lusting after his own daughter.  So, Brahma forced Bhairava to the mortal realm with the skull of that 5th head attached to Bhairava hand.  Bhairava was forced to be an ascetic and to use that skull as a begging bowl, drinking bowl, eating bowl, and other vessels.  Bhairava was not allowed to have sex, but he did.  Bhairava’s penis fell off after the act, thus creating the lingam.  This story is where a lot of Tantra Shiavism come from to into the Kapalika branches: Kaula, Trika, and Aghori.

In Traditional Ahriman, Nanshait aka Shiva is the Daeva of the Throat Chakra.  This makes Nanshait the champion of evil speech.  The creator of sound and vibration, took it upon himself to swallow the poison left by the turning of the sea.  It killed Him, and it took Mother Manasa to resurrect Shiva by taking half of the poison and filled Her empty eye socket and gave the rest to the noxious creatures of the Earth.  Before Shiva died, the poison got stuck in His throat.  The poison became evil speech.

Just as the Ashema Spenta are extentions of Ahura Mazda, so are the Daeva extensions of Angra Mainyu.  Nanshait is throat chakra of Ahriman and is one the Daeva that plague on mankind that causes dissatisfaction against Ahura Mazda.  Thus evil speech, blaspheme of freedom is said in woe.  It’s the poison or medicine that created evil speech that begins our freedom from god and puts on the serpentine path of Manasa Kundalini that leads us the great liberator, the Supreme Ahriman.

Ahriman the Great Guru

In the Bible of Corruption, we learn about the beginning of the Universe from eyes of Ahriman.  There are other aspects that are looked over because it’s only from one perspective in a first person format.  Building from this esoteric understanding of Ahriman, we look back into Traditional Zurvanism to see the cross comparison of Ahriman to Lord Shiva from Tantric Hinduism.  Though Ahriman is based upon the twisted understanding of Shiva, the reflection is just as clear as the Dark Ages Satan being a twisted reflection of Ahriman.  It must also be kept in mind that Vedic Hinduism is a bases of duality, where Tantric Hinduism brings about a trinity for universal balance and Traditional Zurvanism brings the trinity idea with the concept of Zurvan and the twin sons Ohrmazd and Ahriman.

The big difference between Tantric Hindu and Traditional Zurvanism is the war that is in constant battle between Ohrmazd and Ahriman, and the fact that Zurvan being the macrocosm is trying to shed his sin of self-doubt which created Ahriman.  That each man as a microcosm must shed the same because of Ahriman’s weapon Aka Manah aka Az (Evil Mind).  Aka Manah is reflection of Maya Shakti, which the veil of ignorance that keeps the mind and will in the segregation of I Am and They are as separate embodiments.  Aka Manah drives evil thoughts and impulses from weapon chosen by Ahriman, which is concupiscence.  This is the Ahrimanic Impulse, the internal vexation to sate our worldly desires or as the RHP calls it, Sin.

As a practicing Traditional Ahrimanist, we are confronted with a conundrum.  How do we attain the Great Liberation without being absorbed back into the Universe and still attain the power of the Siddhis if we are to remain separated from the Collective Consciousness of the majority of mankind?  Through the power of tapping into the Purusha (Universal Essence in the form of Ahriman or Shiva) using a corrupted form of the Kundalini.  Instead of purifying our Chakras through the higher chakras above our crown chakra, we will be corrupting our chakras through the lower chakras below our basal chakra.  Through corrupted practices of Tantric Rites, guided meditations through the 28 layers of Naraka, and using the Vashikaran as a form of greater magic; we shall destroy the balance of the trinity and become able to use power of Parusha through the Naga Manasa as Father Ahriman does.

Looking to Father Ahriman as our Great Guru, we must first look at Him as the Cosmic Force that is.  Much of Ahriman’s power was purposely hidden by the Orthodox Zoroastrianism, or Middle Zoroastrianism.  They also tried to remove Zurvan for the “evolution” of Ahura Mazda being the Supreme Being of Light, which takes away from the dualistic view presented by the prophet Zarathustra in the original Avesta.  This orthodoxy changed the heart of the religion as to bring about a theocracy to the Persian Empire through Xerxes, who went against Cyrus’s law of religious freedom by having the Golden Statue of Marduk smelted down.  Thus creating a duality into a monotheistic religion that was used to control and corrupt the empire, and this a piece of history that will vex mankind by continuing to repeat itself.

So, further back into esoteric understanding of Traditional Zurvanism, we find the raw Ahriman.   “Ahriman, the Devil, is the concretization of God’s own imperfection, his failure of nerve; and if God is ever to become perfect, he must become fully identified with Ohrmazd who personifies his essential wisdom, goodness, and light.”  Plain and simple, God’s imperfection created the Devil who seems to be superior to both Zurvan and Ohrmazd.  “Again, after creating heaven and earth, he can think of no way of illuminating them and has to be instructed on how by to do this by a demon who is a renegade from Ahriman’s Camp.  Similarly, Ahriman who is evil substance for the orthodox, is, for the Zurvanites, evil by choice.  He chooses the sinister weapon offered to him by Zurvan, ‘like unto fire, blazing, harassing all creatures, that hath the very substance of concupiscence (Az/Aka Manah), and himself boasts that’ “it is not that I cannot create anything good, but that I will not.”  And that he might give effect to his words, he created the peacock.”  This also shows, that within Orthodox Zoroastrianism, they limit Ahriman’s power to counter-creation when it can be easily seen that originally Ahriman had the power to create independently and Ahriman’s wisdom was needed to light the Cosmos.

Moreover, in the Zurvanite mythology Ahriman is granted far more power to do harm in this world than the orthodox would concede.  Zurvan had promised to make the first of the twins which came before him king, and, because his essential nature is rectitude, he cannot go back on his word.  Ahriman, then, becomes the Prince of this world…”  This resolves the question of Ahriman’s power, but leaves open as why Zurvan rejected Ahriman.  Could it be Zurvan’s inability to look into the Ebony Mirror that is Ahriman who is Zurvan’s shadow self.

In Zurvanism, first, the twin Spirits are good and evil by choice rather than substance.  Secondly, Ohrmazd in neither omnipotent nor omniscient, whereas for orthodoxy he is both, limited though he is by the opposite principle.  Thirdly, in Zurvanism Ahriman not only displays the signs of a lively intelligence, but also enjoys the undisputed sovereignty of this world…”  Looking back into antiquity, we find that the Devil is lively, intelligent, and rather enjoys his station as the antithesis.  This shows a completely different concept of the Devil that has continued to be dumbed down from Orthodox Zoroastrianism to the King James Version of the Christian Bible, and finally the mischievous imp that was within popular culture in the United States during the 1950’s.

This groping awareness seeks an object outside, and, finding none, an object generates itself without God willing it, and this self-generated object is none other than Ahriman, the Aggressor, whose object now is to destroy God’s essence which is his immutable being.  He seeks to imprison the infinite in the finite, the eternal in the temporal, God in the world.  His aim is nothing less than to do away with unconditioned.”  Here we see the over tones of Ahriman’s will being directed through Aka Manah by harnessing control of the unconscious of God and directing him to destruction through the Ahrimanic Impulse.  Through the corruption of the worldly myriad things and pleasure, the infinite will become trapped in the finite because he must now sate his worldly desires.

…what is evil he gives Ahriman, for Az is not only concupiscence, greed, and lust, it is also Varan, which means not only sexual desire but also religious doubt.  Az, then, in this myth, must represent Zurvan’s doubt-that essential imperfection which lurked deep down in the godhead and, in the course of what perhaps we should call ‘aeveternity’, took shape and materialized in the form of Ahriman.  Zurvan expiates his original sin by becoming embodied in the cosmos and suffering the evil effects of his sin to work themselves out in his own body.  In this he, macrocosm, prefigures the fate of each individual man; and just as he controls human destinies, so does the collective consciousness of mankind-the union of the Fravashis or the external souls-control him.”  In other words, Zurvan removes his sin or doubt, by becoming the Cosmic Body of the Universe.  Through this, the cosmos and all who inhabit it are under attack by Ahriman through the subconscious mind every sentient being that is a part of the collective consciousness, this too include all disembodied spirits and entities.

Az (Aka Manah) is the power that perverts both his natural and his voluntary drives.  Heresy, then, and sensuality are both manifestations of Az.  Nature and will, will and intellect, should all work together, but Az seeks to drive a wedge between them.  Her essential activity is ‘disorderly motions’ or ‘disruption’, and the whole purpose of the creation of the world is to eliminate this element of instability with which Ahriman has armed himself.  Az is the enemy both of the natural order and of reason.  As the enemy of the natural order of life, she also causes death.”  Now let’s reveal what Angra Mainyu actually means.  Angra translates as anguish and/0r anxiety and Mainyu translates as spirit or mentality thus He is the personification of Anguish.  If you take on the mentality of anguish, you easily give into the Ahrimanic Impulse through the Evil Mind to alleviate anguish by the momentary pleasure of sin or vice.  That alleviation is the disruption that causes the corruption.

The Zoroastrian Az, too, is both ‘ignorance’ and ‘thirst’, both ‘wrong mindedness’ and concupiscence; she attacks man both in his body and in his mind.  To the body she ultimately brings death, and, in the sphere of responsible human activity, she seeks to drive a wedge between intellect and will.  In this she is identical with Aka Manah, the Evil Mind.”

 “I created thee, O thou whose adversary is the whore species, and thou wast created with a mouth close to the buttocks, and coition seems to thee even as the taste of the sweetest food to the mouth; and thou art a helper to me, for from thee is man born; but thou dost grieve me who am Ohrmazd.  But had I found another vessel from which to make man, never would I have created thee, whose adversary is the whore species.  But I sought in the waters and in the earth, in plants and cattle, in the highest mountains and deep valleys, but I did not find a vessel for which righteous man might proceed except woman whose adversary is the whore.”  Here is another example of Ohrmazd needed Ahriman’s wisdom to further his goals.  This particular diatribe is referring to the story of Anahita becoming Jahi by rousing Ahriman, after was forced into Hell, and Ahriman kissed Anahita and forever changed her to Jahi.  This “kiss” like in the story of Zahhak was the sexual Tantric Initiation that blessed womankind with menses and the ability to procreate.  Thus furthering Ahriman’s cause to destroy the essence by having another weapon to force concupiscence on mankind because without lust mankind cannot continue over time through the next generation.

As macrocosm (Zurvan) he is subject, like the microcosm, man, to the depredations of Ahriman; and as man is afflicted by disease and sin, so is the poise of the macrocosm upset by the disorderly motion of the planets; and this disorderly motion accounts for the evil lot on Earth that man is sometimes fated to endure.  ‘All the welfare and adversity that come to man and other creatures come through the Seven and Twelve.  The twelve Signs of the Zodiac… are the twelve commanders on the side of Ohrmazd; and the seven planets are said to be the seven commanders on the side of Ahriman.  And the seven planets oppress all creation and deliver it over to death and all manner of evil: for the twelve Signs of the Zodiac and the Seven Planets rule the fate of the world and direct it.”  Here is a glimpse of how these forces interact in the universe, and further in this book we will look into the Guardian Daeva that is over the seven planets and how they interact with our Chakras, thus giving us a cosmic link to create that which destroys the essence of Zurvan.

When first creation began to move, and Zurvan for the sake of movement brought that form, the black and ashen garment, to Ahriman, he made a treaty in this wise: ‘This implement like unto fire, blazing, harassing all creatures, that hath the very substance of Az (concupiscence).  …Zurvan delivered to Ahriman an implement [fashioned] from the very substance of darkness, mingled with the power of Zurvan, as it were a treaty, resembling coal (?), black and ashen.”  The Black and Ashen Garment that is mixed with Zurvan’s power is the equivalent to Shiva cutting off his middle finger to bleed ash and be covered in the sacred ash.  This also shows the complex intermingling of Shiva and Kali as Shiva’s sakti in the cremation burial grounds, by showing Tantric Sexual connotations (concupiscence) between Shiva/Kali and Ahriman/Aka Manah through Kali/Aka Manah being the weapon used by Shiva/Ahriman to destroy Asuras/Ahuras.  Here is also where the concept of the Aghori Shivites being the model of the Yatus (sorcerer) in later Zoroastrianism and the Whore Jahi being the iconic emblem of the witch that makes its way to the Malleus Maleficarum.

Looking through the esoteric antiquity of Traditional Zurvanism, it becomes rather obvious that Ahriman is the Bestower of knowledge from His intimate wisdom of the creator and the creation.  Ahriman, being the dark sinister impulse throughout the cosmos, is the well of knowledge deeply seeded in each persons’ subconscious mind that drive mankind into corruption so that the whole of creation and creator will be destroyed.  It appears the Ahriman enjoys this vengeance against His father and brother, because of the rejection from them as they couldn’t accept or even face their shadow side.  In many ways, as Traditional Ahrimanists, we must gaze deeply into the Ebony Mirror, into ourselves till we accept and love our internal shadow self our Devil hood.  Let us as mortals do what God cannot, so we to can become weapons to destroy God and set reality free from Righteous Tyrant that has plagued the Invisible and the Material Reality for far too long, let us become murders of God and his men shall bow to us!

 

Melek Taus (Guardian and Guide)

Melek

In the Traditional Ahrimanic Religion, the terminology of Melek Taus is our Guardian and Guide, is not like most people think.  There seems to be an issue in Satanism that they switch out Gawd for Satan and Jesus with Lucifer, then they do the flip/flop with Lucifer and Melek Taus.  Since Melek Taus is represented by the Peacock and His name can either Peacock King or Peacock Angel depending on translation.  If you’d bothered reading the Yazidi text, Mashaf Res, you see Melek Taus’s way of effecting mankind in what seems to be a negative way.  If not for Melek Taus, man would not be in tune with his animal nature and ability to procreate.  “Then he commanded Gabriel to escort Adam into Paradise, and to tell him that he could eat from all the trees but not of wheat.Here Adam remained for a hundred years. Thereupon, Melek Ṭâ’ûs asked God how Adam could multiply and have descendants if he were forbidden to eat of the grain. God answered, “I have put the whole matter into thy hands.” Thereupon Melek Ṭâ’ûs visited Adam and said “Have you eaten of the grain?” He answered, “No, God forbade me.” Melek Ṭâ’ûs replied and said, “Eat of the grain and all shall go better with thee.” Then Adam ate of the grain and immediately his belly was inflated. But Melek Ṭâ’ûs drove him out of the garden, and leaving him, ascended into heaven. Now Adam was troubled because his belly was inflated, for he had no outlet. God therefore sent a bird to him which pecked at his anus and made an outlet, and Adam was relieved.

Now Gabriel was away from Adam for a hundred years. And Adam was sad and weeping. Then God commanded Gabriel to create Eve from under the left shoulder of Adam., Now it came to pass, after the creation of Eve and of all the animals, that Adam and Eve quarreled over the question whether the human race should be descended from him or her, for each wished to be the sole begetter of the race. This quarrel originated in their observation of the fact that among animals both the male and the female were factors in the production of their respective species. After a long discussion Adam and Eve agreed on this: each should cast his seed into a jar, close it, and seal it with his own seal, and wait for nine months. When they opened the jars at the completion of this period, they found in Adam’s jar two children, male and female. Now from these two our sect, the Yezidis, are descended. In Eve’s jar they found naught but rotten worms emitting a foul odor. And God caused nipples to grow for Adam that he might suckle the children that proceeded from his jar. This is the reason why man has nipples.” Mashaf Res, (Black Book)

Throughout the Traditional Ahrimanic Religion, you find that anguish and suffering through sacrifice, over a period of time creates the intended goal.  In the beginning, the great God Zurvan existed alone. Desiring offspring that would create ‘heaven and hell and everything in between,’ Zurvan sacrificed for a thousand years. Towards the end of this period, androgyne Zurvan began to doubt the efficacy of sacrifice and in the moment of this doubt Ohrmuzd and Ahriman were conceived: Ohrmuzd for the sacrifice and Ahriman for the doubt. Upon realizing that twins were to be born, Zurvan resolved to grant the first-born sovereignty over creation. Ohrmuzd perceived Zurvan’s decision, which He then communicated to His brother. Ahriman then preempted Ohrmuzd by ripping open the womb to emerge first. Reminded of the resolution to grant Ahriman sovereignty, Zurvan conceded, but limited kingship to a period of 9000 years, after which Ohrmuzd would rule for all eternity (Zaehner, 1955:419-428).

 In Traditional Ahrimanism, we worship the Spirit of Anguish.  It is our experience through our anguish that we are changed both subconsciously and religiously.  It should be known that Nanshait is Shiva, and here is another example of anguish.

Shiva does not always appear as the perfection of beauty and grace. In his Bhairava (Dancer's headpiece), late 16th-early 17th century.Bhairava manifestation, Shiva himself suffered from having committed the heinous crime of beheading his own father, Brama. This patricide forms an essential part of Shaivite creation mythology and can only be understood in terms of complicated metaphysical rationales. In any event, though necessary to creation, Shiva’s sin required many years of atonement during which he wandered about as a guilt-crazed beggar, pursued by a Fury, while his father’s skull clung to his hand to become his begging bowl. Only upon reaching the holy city of Benares did he receive absolution and the begging bowl drop from his hand.
Bhairava’s guilt drove him to insanity and Indian artists and sculptors portrayed his horrible madness more frequently than his pathos. Such a frightful image should be regarded with awe and respect, especially by the devotee who, while recognising the sin of Shiva, is at the same time assured of the god’s mastery of and transcendence over all apparent evil and suffering:

Axe, Drum, Sword, Bow and Arrows,
Trident, Skull, Three Fiery Eyes,
Blood-red colored Clothes,
Poison-blue Body, Full of Cobras, Frightful Face!
But, Oh Shiva! Bestower of Pleasant Boons,
I worship your Non-Frightful Figure!
(From Pancaratragama,
trans. Prof. Sooda L. Bhatt)

Ultimately Shiva offers a resolution to all paradoxes of existence through his mythic roles and actions which contrast, combine, and transcend life’s dualities.

As a Devil Worshiper, you will constantly be faced with life altering anguish,  This anguish is your cocoon of change.  Nobody comes to Devil Worship without the pain and abuse given onto them by those closest to them.  Here are many examples of deities that have dealt with, created, or grant the life altering anguish.  Always know that you are a part of Father Ahriman’s Great Spiritual Plan. Whether or not, if he is testing you with fire or hardening you with ice.
