The Blue Pyramid
Low Mass of the Great Gods of Heaven

A shorter ritual for establishing contact with any god that might be desired, according to the formula of the Grimorium Sanctissimum.  Adapted for individual use from the Mass of the Phoenix, Liber Pyramidos, and other sources by Frater DH.
 
See also my essay on the Grimorium and the Paris Working.

TEMPLUM
 
A triangle is inscribed on the ground.  The Hebrew letter Aleph is at the apex in the East; Mem in the Southwest, and Shin in the Northwest.
 
The Magician stands at the triangle's base in the West, with the altar at the apex in the East, on which are the Bell, Thurible, holy oil, two of the Cakes of Light, the tablet of the god being invoked, and an image of the Most Great Mighty Unspeakable Ineffable Holy God.
 
CEREMONIUM PRINCIPII
 
In the Sign of Silence, he Cries:
 
Hail, Asi! 1 (Bell)
He establishes Demeter at his right hand.

Hail, Hoor-Apep! (Bell)
He establishes Hades at his left hand.
 
Let The silence speech beget!
 
He gives the sign of the Enterer, establishing Hermes before him.
 
O Thou, the Apex of the Plane
With Ibis head and Phoenix Wand
And wings of Night! Whose serpents strain
Their bodies, bounding the beyond.
Thou in the Light and in the Night
Art One, above their moving might!
 
Thus is the pyramid built of salt, sulphur and mercury.
 
CEREMONIUM THURIBULII
 
He gives the sign of silence, and strikes Eleven times upon the Bell 333-55555-333 and places the Fire in the Thurible.
 
I strike the Bell: I light the Flame;
I utter the mysterious Name.
 
ABRAHADABRA
 
CEREMONIUM DEDICATIONIS
 
He strikes eleven times upon the Bell.  Then taking up the holy oil, he anoints the sacred image, saying:
 
Now I begin to pray to thee,
Sap of the world-ash, wonder-tree!
 
Thou who art I, beyond all I am,
Who hast no nature and no name,
Who art, when all but thou are gone,
Thou, centre and secret of the Sun,
Thou, hidden spring of all things known
And unknown, Thou aloof, alone,
Thou, the true fire within the reed
Brooding and breeding, source and seed
Of life, love, liberty, and light,
Thou beyond speech and beyond sight,
Thee I invoke, my faint fresh fire
Kindling as mine intents aspire.
Thee I invoke, abiding one,
Thee, centre and secret of the Sun,
And that most holy mystery
Of which the vehicle am I.
Appear, most awful and most mild,
As it is lawful, in thy child!
 
SACRIFICIUM SUMMUM
 
He puts the first Cake on the Fire of the Thurible.
 
I burn the Incense-cake, proclaim
These adorations of Thy name.
 
Now let him chant a holy versicle such as those from the Equinox, performing the sacrifice within himself as outlined in Liber HHH, Chapter III.
 
And lo, the god will appear in the sanctuary.  Yea, the god will appear in the sanctuary.
 
Then let the magician cleave his tongue to the roof of his mouth, that the golden elixir may flow down from the Heavenly Pool.
 
BENEDICTIO BENEDICTI
 
He raises up the second Cake, anointed with elixir, striking Eleven times upon the Bell.
 
For of the Father and the Son
The Holy Spirit is the norm;
Male-female, quintessential, one,
Man-being veiled in woman-form.
Glory and worship in the highest,
Thou Dove, mankind that deifiest,
Being that race, most royally run
To spring sunshine through winter storm.
Glory and worship be to Thee,
Sap of the world-ash, wonder-tree!

CEREMONIUM FINIS
 
He eats the second Cake.
 
This Bread I eat. This Oath I swear
As I enflame myself with prayer:
"There is no grace: there is no guilt:
This is the Law: DO WHAT THOU WILT!"
 
He strikes Eleven times upon the Bell, and cries
 
ABRAHADABRA
 
I entered in with woe; with mirth
I now go forth, and with thanksgiving,
To do my pleasure on the earth
Among the legions of the living.
 
He goeth forth.
