Hello! :)

One of my favourite prayers is:

Be thou, oh Hadit, my secret, the Gnostic mystery of my Being, the central point of my connection, my heart itself, and bloom on my fertile lips, made word!

Up above, in the infinite heavens, in the profound height of the unknowable, the incessant glow of light is the naked body of Nut. She reclines, she bends in delectable ecstasy, to receive the kiss of secret fervor of Hadit.

The winged sphere and the blue of the sky are mine.

O A O Kakof Na Khonsa
O A O Kakof Na Khonsa
O A O Kakof Na Khonsa

It is a beautiful prayer from the Book of the Law.

I have also found this version:

Be thou Hadit, my secret centre, my heart & my tongue!

Behold! it is revealed by Aiwass the minister of Hoor-paar-kraat.

The Khabs is in the Khu, not the Khu in the Khabs.

Worship then the Khabs, and behold my light shed over you!

Let my servants be few & secret: they shall rule the many & the known.

These are fools that men adore; both their Gods & their men are fools.

Come forth, o children, under the stars, & take your fill of love!

I am above you and in you. My ecstasy is in yours. My joy is to see your joy.

Above, the gemmed azure is
The naked splendour of Nuit;
She bends in ecstasy to kiss
The secret ardours of Hadit.
The winged globe, the starry blue,
Are mine, O Ankh-af-na-khonsu!

I noticed it is slightly different and so is the mantra. Which is more powerful? The one Samael gave or the one in the book?

and what is the difference in the mantras?

If you could shed some light on this for me I would be very appreciative! :)

God-bless, and may all beings be happy x




Edit: I just realised that this the Book of the Law was by Aleister Crowley, is this correct? Was this prayer lifted from his book or was this prayer in existence way before?

Like many black magicians, Aleister Crowley took from many venerable traditions and utilized their prayers and symbols, according to subjective interpretation. For as one initiate of the white lodge wrote:
"Black Magic is not a fundamental art; it is the misuse of an art. Therefore it has no symbols of its own." - Manly P. Hall

For thirty years I sought God. But when I looked carefully I found that in reality God was the seeker and I the sought. -Bayazid al-Bastami
