Bloody Creation
in the Cult of Hoor


Dionysos Thriambos
Io Pan Jam 2001 e.v.



The Marshall gathers the cult by the Great Fire, and leads the Dawn Adoration:

Hail unto Thee who art Ra in Thy rising, even unto Thee who art Ra in Thy strength, who travellest over the Heavens in Thy bark at the Uprising of the Sun. Tahuti standeth in His splendour at the prow, and Ra-Hoor abideth at the helm. Hail unto Thee from the Abodes of Night!

Sacrifist:

Deeper and deeper into the mire of things! Farther and farther into the never-ending Expansion of the Abyss.

Forth-Speaker:

The great goddess that bendeth over the Universe is my mistress; I am the winged globe at her heart. I contract ever as she ever expandeth;

Sacrifist and Forth-Speaker:

At the end it is all one.

All present chant the Holiest of All Mantras repeatedly:

a ka dua tuf ur biu bi a'a chefu dudu nur af an nuteru

During the chanting Hoor is brought out, borne upon the ark, and set upon a high altar. The Choir lauds the appearance of the god with the Horus Hymn:

I have risen! I have risen! as a mighty hawk of gold!
From the golden egg I gather, and my wings the world enfold.
I alight in mighty splendour from the throned boats of light;
Companies of Spirits follow me; adore the Lords of Night.
Yea, with gladness did they paean, bowing low before my car,
In my ears their homage echoed from the sunrise to the star.
I have risen! I am gathered as a lovely hawk of gold,
I the first-born of the Mother in her ecstasy of old.
Lo! I come to face the dweller in the sacred snake of Khem;
Come to face the Babe and Lion, come to measure force with them!
Ah! these locks flow down, a river, as the earth's before the Sun,
As the earth's before the sunset, and the God and I are One.
I who entered in a Fool, gain the God by clean endeavour;
I am shaped as men and women, fair for ever and ever.

Forth-Speaker:

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

All reply:

Love is the law, love under will.

Forth-Speaker:

Thee we reverence, Mighty Hoor, God of the two Horizons, Thou sensible and vivifying King of Kings, whose radiance lightening the worlds is also the breath that maketh every god, even an death, to tremble before Thee. To Thee we come through tribulation of ordeal. Thee we worship with fire and blood, with swords and spears.

Sacrifist produces the dove, saying:

Unto Thee we devote this Victim.

Forth-Speaker offers a triple petition:

Supreme and terrible god of war and vengeance, grant that this association, under whose wings we gather, shall be proven through success.

All respond:

So mote it be.

Forth-Speaker:

Thou Lord Initiating, who hast taken thy seat in the East, mete out knowledge, will, courage, and tact to the officers of this association, that they may serve it with zeal and wisdom.

All respond:

So mote it be.

Forth-Speaker:

Direful judge, before whose throne the heathen are trampled, look with favor upon this present festival, and its future descendants, as works of magick wherein we cluster to exalt thee.

All respond:

So mote it be.

The Forth-Speaker incants:

sin autem de avibus holocausti oblatio fuerit Domino de turturibus et pullis columbae--offeret eam sacerdos ad altare et retorto ad collum capite ac rupto vulneris loco decurrere faciet sanguinem super crepidinem altaris1

The Forth-Speaker declares:

AGLA: by Thine Energy riseth all Motion of the Will, begetter, destroyer!

The Sacrifist presents the dove, saying:

HRILIU: there is nothing too small, or too great, or too low, or too high; but all things are joined into Joy by Love.

The dove is slain by the Forth-Speaker, saying:

ABRAHADABRA; the Reward of Ra Hoor Khut.

The dove is bled by the Forth-Speaker at the foot of the altar, while the Marshall speaks:

The Word is broken up.
There is Knowledge.
Knowledge is Relation.
These fragments are Creation.
The broken manifests Light.

The dove is immolated in the Great Fire, with frankincense and cinnamon, while the Forth-Speaker incants:

confringetque ascellas eius et non secabit nec ferro dividet eam et adolebit super altare lignis igne subposito holocaustum est et oblatio suavissimi odoris Domino2

Forth-Speaker:

Our loves have brought to birth the Father and Creator of all things. He hath established the elements; the aether, the air, the water, the earth, and the fire. He hath established the wandering stars in their courses. He hath ploughed with the seven stars of his Plough, that the Seven might move indeed, yet ever point to the unchanging One. He hath established the Eight Belts, wherewith he hath girdled the globes. He hath established the Trinity of Triads in all things, forcing fire into fire, and ordering all things in the Stable Abode of the Kings of Aegypt. He hath established His rule in His kingdom.

There is no grace,
There is no guilt,
This is the Law:

All reply:

Do what thou wilt.

Forth-Speaker:

Go, and work your wills.

Q. V. I. F.


1. "And if the burnt sacrifice for his offering to the LORD [be] of fowls, then he shall bring his offering of turtledoves, or of young pigeons. And the priest shall bring it unto the altar, and wring off his head, and burn [it] on the altar; and the blood thereof shall be wrung out at the side of the altar:"

2. "And he shall cleave it with the wings thereof, [but] shall not divide [it] asunder: and the priest shall burn it upon the altar, upon the wood that [is] upon the fire: it [is] a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD."
