Adultery

This question relates specifically to the temple vestals of the ancient world, mentioned by Samael:

"In fact, everyone who received the great Arcanum during the sacred ceremony immediately moved to work with the vestal of the temple. There were many vestals ready to work in the Great Work with the celibate initiates. The married initiates practiced in their homes with their priestess wives. The vestals were duly prepared for the priesthood of love. They had great Lady masters who prepared them, and they were submitted to great ordeals and penances. These were precisely the sacred prostitutes about which many authors speak."

It seems that virtually every ancient civilization had its version of temple prostitutes. Doesn't the very concept of a "sacred prostitute" (an oxymoron) go against the Divine law? According to the Hebrew Bible, it does:

"There shall be no ritual harlot of the daughters of Israel, or a perverted one of the sons of Israel." (Deuteronomy 23:17)

"The man who practices Sexual Magic with different women, and the woman who practices Sexual Magic with different men, commit Adultery, and no adulterer achieves anything. Yes, there are men and women who commit Adultery by practicing Sexual Magic with many; as a pretext, they allege that they are helping others, yet they utilize these teachings in order to justify Adultery and this is a horrible crime against the Holy Spirit." (Samael Aun Weor).

If a vestal of a temple engages in intercourse with several (or perhaps many) initiates, isn't adultery being committed? The kundalini only awakens if the practice of alchemy is carried out between two people in a committed, monogamous relationship.

I would appreciate any clarification of this issue. It would assist in expanding my understanding of the law of karma as it relates to adultery.

Ignoramuses called the vestals of the temple “sacred prostitutes” because they ignore the mystery of the Arcanum AZF. One Nun or vestal among many was selected by the angels of the Holy Spirit in order to betroth her to only one monk or celibate initiate, and only with him did the vestal practice sexual magic.

Example:


Mary was the daughter of Anna, who presented Mary to be received into the temple to take her vows. Thus, Mary was one of the vestals of the temple.

Mary was born from an aristocratic family. Before entering into the temple as a vestal, she had countless suitors, even a rich and handsome man who wanted to marry her. However, Mary did not accept him; her heart loved only God.

The first years of her life were surrounded by all sorts of comforts.

Traditions state that Mary made carpets for the temple of Jerusalem, and that those carpets were transformed into roses.

Mary knew the secret doctrine of the tribe of Levi. Mary was educated within the august shadows of the gates of Jerusalem, amidst the blooming foliage of oriental palms, under whose shadows rested the old camel riders of the desert.

Likewise, Mary was initiated into the mysteries of Egypt. She knew the wisdom of the Pharaohs, and drank from the goblet of ancient Christianity, calcined by the burning fire of the eastern lands.

The Catholic religion as we know it today did not loom upon the seven hills of the Augustan Rome of the Caesars; the ancient Essenians only knew the old Christian doctrine, the doctrine of the martyrs, that doctrine by which St. Stephen died a martyr.

That holy, Christic doctrine was kept in secrecy within the mysteries of Egypt, Troy, Rome, Carthage, Eleusis, etc.

The greatest task endowed upon Jesus Christ was to publicly represent that ancient doctrine on the roads of Jerusalem.

Thus, Mary, the virgin of Carmel, was the vestal chosen by divinity to be the mother of the divine redeemer of the world.......

In the temple of Jerusalem, there were 33 male priests of the tribe of Levi.

Jesus of Nazareth's father Joseph was one of 33 elders of the temple of Solomon.

After the annunciation, the high priest ordered all 33 priests of the temple to place their rods behind the altar. They were told that the one whose branch blossomed was destined to be the husband of Mary. Thus, all the priests, one by one, in successive order, placed their rods behind the altar. The last one commanded to place his rod was the priest Joseph, who resisted the command of the high priest, alleging his old age. However, he had to obey the command, and placed his rod behind the altar.

Early in the morning the next day, all the priests went to the altar to collect their rods, and to their great surprise they found the rod of Joseph completely blossomed.

Thus, this is how Joseph was appointed to be the husband of Mary. - Samael Aun Weor


Another vestal was Mary Mag-dale-ne:

1. Mag, Magi (various languages) "priest" or "priestess"

2. Dalene - Dalan "valley," preserved from extinction in north of England by Norse infl. Akin to words for "bow" (v.), probably through the notion of a bend in the ground."

Mag-dalene means therefore: a Priestess Adept from other lands or valleys: a white priestess wife.

Mary Magdalene was a vestal or the priestess-spouse of Jesus of Nazareth, and is a great Gnostic Initiate.

"Mary Magdalene, as well as Salambo, Matres, Ishtar, Astarte, Aphrodite and Venus all represent the priestess-wife with whom we must practice Sexual Magic in order to awaken the Fire (of the Holy Spirit; the Kundalini)." - Samael Aun Weor, The Perfect Matrimony

Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah,
the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book,
and to loose the seven seals thereof. - Revelation 5: 5

Thanks for the clarification, Lion of Judah.

I assume that the tradition of the temple vestals degenerated over time in various places, and perhaps only then did they become actual "harlots" which the ignoramuses wrote about. Neglecting the laws of the Divine as the egos grew stronger, the wise ancient civilizations deteriorated and became perverse, an example of which are the human sacrifices in the temples of the Aztecs.
