Derived from Greek βαϕή baphe, βάπτω ("I dip") "immersion" + Μῆτις, Metis "wisdom," "skill," or "craft." Thus, Baphomet means "baptism" or initiation into wisdom. The Baphoment represents Pan, the force of nature that Adam and Eve have to tame and master in order to return to Eden.
A medieval mystic term usually identified with the goat of Mendes. The Templars of Malta were accused of worshiping Baphomet as an idol. Baphomat signifies a baptism in wisdom or, but became degraded and misunderstood when the keys to its real meaning were lost.
The symbol of the Baphomet is related to Arcanum 15: Passion, as explained in Tarot and Kabbalah.
The term baphomet hides a message when read backwards: Tem-o-h-p-ab, which is the symbol of the Latin words "Templi ommun hominum pacis abbas," which means, "The Father of the temple of universal peace for men."
