Aramaic, literally "pile of skulls.” Hebrew גלגלת (Num 1:2; Ch1 23:3, Ch1 23:24; Kg2 9:35). Also called Calvary from Latin calva “bald head” or “skull.” A skull-shaped hill in Jerusalem, the site of Jesus’ Crucifixion.

"And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull..." - Mat 27:33, Mar 15:22, Jhn 19:17

Golgotha is an esoteric symbol related to the death of the psychological I.

"With this [sexual] cross, we need to advance on the path that will conduct us to the Golgotha of the Father." - Samael Aun Weor, Christ and the Virgin

"We have to raise the igneous serpent of our magical powers up to the Golgotha of the Father (the brain)." - Samael Aun Weor, The Perfect Matrimony

"All of the vehicles of the initiate must be crucified and stigmatized in the Golgotha of supreme sacrifice. The Golgotha of the Father is the brain. We must rise to the Golgotha with the cross on our back." - Samael Aun Weor, The Aquarian Message

"When the initiate has made the Kundalini of his Astral body arrive at the heart, then in the internal worlds he experiences the symbolic death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Then, in the internal worlds, the initiate lives out the whole drama of Golgotha in his Astral body... Our Astral body is transformed into a living Nazarene, filled with power and glory when we experience the event of Golgotha in the Astral body." - Samael Aun Weor, The Seven Words

"Understand that there are Seven Serpents of Fire and Seven Serpents of Light. The ascension of each one of the Serpents of Light is a very arduous and difficult task...  these are the seven eternal Calvaries... [The seven serpents of light] are the seven terribly divine Golgothas..." - Samael Aun Weor, The Major Mysteries
