Consecration-Dedication Rite/93 MAAT

It is suggested the celebrant bathe and rinse the body with
the traditional hyssop-water as a preceremonial ablution/preparation. The
Temple shall be appointed and arranged as follows:

The altar shall be bare. The Circle, which is the boundary of the
Universe, shall be scribed astrally. About its circumference are
arranged the following:

To the South, the Wand and candleflame.

To the West, the Chalice and vessel of water.

To the North, the Pantacle and a small mound of earth.

To the East, the Sword and the feather.

Central is a vessel of oil (pure olive oil or one’s personal scent);
small quantities, in appropriate containers, of salt, rice, and milk;
one’s “badge of office” – robe, crown, or ring; a vessel of wine.

Enter naked.

Approach the Circle from the South, in the Sign of the Enterer. Walk
the Circle deosil, and at the East, assume the gesture of
Heru-Pa-Kraat. Banish, according to the rite given previously.Face
the center of the Circle and proclaim:

“Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

“By the same mouth that declares the Law, shall the Will be spoken and
the Work be vowed.

“THELEMA! AGAPE! ABRAHADABRA! IPSOS!”

Extend the arms upward, palms to the sky.

“To NUIT!

“By HADIT!

“In the Name of RA-HOOR-KHUIT!”

Proceed to the South, stand before Wand and candle flame, facing
outward. Take up the Wand in the right hand, pass it through the
flame, hold it aloft, saying:

“This Wand is the weapon of my Will. It is the phallus of my
spirit,the sceptre of my Kingdom.”

Turn to the center of the Circle, pour a few drops of oil upon the
Wand, and return to the South, facing outward. Rub the oil into
the Wand: as you do so, chant then Name SHAITAN-AIWASS – loudly at first,
then diminishing to a whisper. Breathe the whispered Name into the Wand
as you anoint it. Then:

“In the Name SHAITAN-AIWASS, I will work for the manifestation of the
Law of Thelema. I will work for the establishment of Truth, Balance and
Justice in the Kingdom. I will work for the evolution of the Universe.”

Keep silence for a space, then, with Wand in hand, proceed to the West.
Place the Wand before the Chalice. Take up the Chalice, rinse it
with the water, hold it aloft, saying:

“This Chalice is the weapon of my Love. It is the yoni of my spirit,
the Graal of my Kingdom. “

Proceed with the anointing as with the Wand, this time using the Name
BABALON-MAAT. Then:

“In the Name BABALON-MAAT, I love thee, NUIT, all that is, and is not!
I love thee, Lord PAN, god of living beauty! I love thee, Man,sleeper
in the night of pain and madness.”

Keep silence for a space, then, with Wand and Chalice, proceed to the
North. Place the weapons before the Pantacle. Take up the Pantacle,
rest it upon the earth, then hold it aloft, saying:

“This Pantacle is the weapon of my Bodies. It is the Word of my spirit,
the seal of my Kingdom.”

Proceed with the anointing as above, using the Name NUIT-HADIT.Then:

“In the Name NUIT-HADIT, I am King and Mage. I am Priest, Hermit,
Warrior, and Fool. I am the Dancer of the Mask; the Mask conceals
nothing.”

Keep silence for a space. Then, with the three weapons, proceed to the
East. Place them before the Sword. Take up the Sword, touch it to
the feather, hold it aloft. saying:

“This Sword is the weapon of my Mind. It is the sentinel of my spirit,
the warrior of my Kingdom.”

Proceed with the anointing as above, using the Name

HERU-RA-HA. Then:

“In the Name HERU-RA-HA, I know that we dream as we dance. I know the
Law that governs the play of the dream. I know that I am as much
illusion as the rest of the Dream.”

Leaving the weapons assembled in the East, return to the center.Anoint
the Chakras with the oil, saying:

(At base of spine) “I dedicate and consecrate my body of flesh to the
Great Work. I will keep it in strength and health to this end.”

(Genitals ) “I dedicate and consecrate my astral body and sexual power
to the Great Work. I will make love only under Will, and always to
NUIT.”

(Navel) “I dedicate and consecrate my etheric body and my Chi to the
Great Work. I will fight as warrior and brother, and will strike low
and hard.”

(Heart) “I dedicate and consecrate my complete identity, Inner and
Outer, to the Great Work. All that I am, yea, to the last drop of
blood, I pour into the Chalice of our Lady BABALON.”

(Throat) “I dedicate and consecrate my speech and my silence to the
Great Work. I will speak only Truth, and keep silence forever
within.”

(Third Eye ) “I dedicate and consecrate my vision to the Great Work. I
will behold all things with clarity, making no difference between any
one thing and any other thing, soever.”

(Back of skull) “I dedicate and consecrate my Observer, the True
Self, to the Great Work. I will accept my non-existence, and again
become Tao.”

(Top of skull) Silence.

Put on the ring/crown/robe. Take up the vessels of salt, rice and milk.
Beginning at the South, cast a few grains/drops beyond the circle at
each compass-point, saying.

“To thee, SHAITAN-AIWASS, are the kingdoms of the Kingdom.”

(West) “To thee, BABALON-MAAT, are the kingdoms of the Kingdom.”

(North) “To thee, NUIT-HADIT, are the kingdoms of the Kingdom.”

(East) “To thee, HERU-RA-HA, are the kingdoms of the Kingdom.”

Return to the center with the vessels. Take the wine to the East.Pour
wine into the Chalice. Take up the Wand, and proceed with VIII*,
making
sure the Elixir flows onto the Wand.

Transfer the Elixir to the wine: using the Wand, stir to
commingle. Dip
the Sword-point into the Chalice, so the fluid runs down the blade.
Spill a few drops upon the Pantacle.

Turn to the center of the Circle, holding the Chalice in the left hand,
the Wand in the right, and declare:

“I will pursue the Great Work to its completion. I will continue from
life to life, from world to world; yea, until the end of Time, until
the evolution of the Universe be domplete. This is my Work, my Word, my
Will, my Love.”

“ABRAHADABRA”

“IPSOS.”

Drink from the Chalice, to the final drop. Place the weapons upon the
Altar.

“So mote it be.

“Love is the law, love under will.”
