Here is an Art of Ninzuwu thought of the day. In English Gematria, which is based on the Sumerian numerical system of 60, and Simple Gematria, based on the numerical place of a letter in its alphabet, we find that both, the Vasuh letter Shki and Babalon have the same value:

Babalon equals: 282 in English Gematria and 47 in Simple Gematria.
Shki equals 282 in English Gematria and 47 in Simple Gematria.

Babalon: “As Crowley wrote in his The Book of Thoth, “she rides astride the Beast; in her left hand she holds the reins, representing the passion which unites them. In her right she holds aloft the cup, the Holy Grail aflame with love and death.” (Source Wikipedia)

Shki: “It is the ninth letter in the language of the Vasuh, and pertains to putting someone in a jar, or a gate, or a vessel. It can also be used to send death energy into an event, person, or object.” (The Ivory Tablets of the Crow)

In the Art of Ninzuwu, the foundation is in Shki and then one ascends from Shki to reach Zhee. While Shki is attributed to Shihotsutsu-no-oji, it can be said to be an aspect of Izanami-no-Mikoto and the spaces between Zhee and Shki are the spaces between Izanagi-no-Mikoto and Izanami-no-Mikoto as seen in the Zhee symbol, the two circles of the right angle.

The Art of Ninzuwu differs from more popular Shinto traditions as the “Fall of Man” in Ninzuwu-Shinto, is seen as the separation of Izanagi-no-Mikoto from Izanami-no-Mikoto. Thus, the goal of the Initiate is the reunification of the divine couple within our being. This life course is simulated even in the Soul of Fire practice.

If Izanami-no-Mikoto is equivalent to the Thelemic Babalon, it would mean that Izanagi-no-Mikoto’s attempts to rescue the former represented an ancient rite of initiation that is still practiced in Thelema but with a different aesthetic. The purpose of this rite of initiation founded by Izanagi-no-Mikoto would thus breed enlightenment, which in the Shinto parable is seen as Izanagi-no-Mikoto’s cleansing of himself and the three divine powers of Amaterasu Ohkami, Tsukiyomi-no-Mikoto, and Susanoo-no-Mikoto, are born. The Nihon Shoki describes the birth of these deities, in some accounts, as the result of Izanagi-no-Mikoto’s cleansing of himself, his eyes and nose. Sight and smell indicate the powers of the molecular world (smell) and those of the electronic realm of light (sight). When the Initiate completes the initiation, as put forth in The Ivory Tablets of the Crow, they are working in the realm of Shki. Remember that in each Vasuh letter are all nine letters. Yes the Tao Te Ching will be another post. Thus we find that no sacrifice or ritual work is done in the Ivory Tablets of the Crow outside of incantation, so as not to commit one to the netherworld, and can never leave. The goal is the reunification, the completion of our being.

We discover yet another amazing connection, and similarity, between Thelema and the Ninzuwu-Shinto current, when we compare what is found in The Book of the Law with the Yi Jing Apocrypha of Genghis Khan. In the first chapter of The Book of the Law, we read:

“The word of the Law is THELEMA. (40.) Who calls us Thelemites will do no wrong, if he look but close into the word. For there are therein Three Grades, the Hermit, and the Lover, and the man of Earth. Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.”

Beginner occult students may not be aware of this, but often times when all the letters of a word are capitalized in a grimoire, it represents a word that has a significant gematric value. In this case we find the word “THELEMA” in capital letters indicating that we should examine the words numerical value.

Thelema equals 384 in English Gematria and 64 in Simple Gematria.

Tiamat equals 384 in English Gematria and 64 in Simple Gematria.

Nuit equals 384 in English Gematria and 64 in Simple Gematria.

It is very interesting to note, that in our analysis, so far, Tiamat and Thelema have the same numerical value. Interestingly, the Yi Jing Apocrypha has this to say about Tiamat in its introduction:

“This information is also supported by the legendary Kenneth Grant, a direct student of Aleister Crowley. Grant wrote the following in his classic work, Outer Gateways:

“Tiamat will once more rule the Earth”. Her other number, 71, is the number of Lam, and of the Kami, a name bestowed in ancient Japan upon the Old Ones whom the Egyptians named the Sami.”

If Tiamat were indeed the Kami, as Grant suggests, then this would also imply that the Kami were the original holders of the Tablets of Destiny, like Tiamat. We discovered earlier in our discussion that the Yi Jing and the Tablets of Destinies were one and the same.”

The Yi Jing Apocrypha of Genghis Khan associates Tiamat with the Book of Changes, commonly known as the I Ching. The foundation of the Yi Jing can be found in the bagua, which are the eight trigrams often used in Taoist cosmology. Is it possible that THELEMA, like the term TIAMAT, which it shares an identical gematric value, represents the workings of the Yi Jing?

After drawing our attention to the word THELEMA, the next passage in The Book of the Law is as follows:

Who calls us Thelemites will do no wrong, if he look but close into the word. For there are therein Three Grades, the Hermit, and the Lover, and the man of Earth. Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.”

In an online article, entitled, Three Grades of Dean Knapp, Frater P.I. gives us the general Thelemic understanding of the passage cited above:

“In the Vision and the Voice, in the 13th Aire, is written “The man of earth is the adherent. The lover giveth his life unto the work among men. The hermit goeth solitary, and giveth only of his light unto men”, Crowley mentions this passage in his “New” Comment to the Book of the Law, and adds, “Thus we have in the Order, the Mystic, the Magician, and the Devotee”. Clearly this implies that three different approaches to Thelema, to the very religious experience itself, are possible, perhaps even necessary in the unfolding of this experience.”

The Three Grades, described in The Book of the Law, also reflect the initiatory structure of the Ordo Templi Orientis, commonly known as the O.T.O. However these Three Grades are very similar in structure to the trigram, of which the 64 Hexagrams are based upon. Coincidentally, the term THELEMA equals 64 in Simple Gematria.

HeavenTrigramWhen we keep in mind that Nuit, Thelema, and Tiamat have the exact numerical equation. The meaning of the following passage, appearing in The Yi Jing Apocrypha of Genghis Khan, becomes quite obvious when compared with the numerical sum of the term Ninzuwu, as the text states:

“When I visited the Magicians of the West, the Workers of Mankind, being men themselves, they would often say marvelous things about the Tree of Life, which is armed with thirty-two roads. Yet, the land of Nyarzir has eight cities and sixty-four roads, and the number of the Ninzuwu will always be twice this amount for the Magicians of Nyarzir speak in a language known in the other universe, a tongue beyond the worlds of darkness and light. The Tongue of the Ninzuwu is the spark by which the Yi Jing moves and can be employed.”

The meaning of this passage, taken from the Yi Jing Apocrypha , is very clear when we make a comparative analysis with some of the gematria we have performed already, as seen below:

Thelema equals 384 in English Gematria and 64 in Simple Gematria.

Tiamat equals 384 in English Gematria and 64 in Simple Gematria.

Nuit equals 384 in English Gematria and 64 in Simple Gematria.

However, when the look at the Gematric equations of the term Ninzuwu, we find that the meaning of the passage in the Yi Jing Apocrypha of Genghis Khan becomes very clear.

Ninzuwu in English Gematria is 768 and 128 in Simple Gematria.

Choronzon in English Gematria is 768 and 128 in Simple Gematria.

Ninjutsu in English Gematria is 768 and 128 in Simple Gematria.

“Yet, the land of Nyarzir has eight cities and sixty-four roads, and the number of the Ninzuwu will always be twice this amount for the Magicians of Nyarzir speak in a language known in the other universe, a tongue beyond the worlds of darkness and light.”

It is interesting to see that both Choronzon and Ninzuwu have the same gematric value. They also compare greatly in definition. According to Thelemapedia, Choronzon is defined as follows:

“Choronzon is the Dweller in the Abyss, that great spiritual wilderness which must be crossed by the adept to attain mastery. Choronzon is there as the final obstruction. If he is met with the proper preparation, then he is there to destroy the ego, which allows the adept to move beyond the Abyss. If unprepared, then the unfortunate traveller will be utterly dispersed into annihilation.”

While the term Ninzuwu is used to describe a state of consciousness associated with the divine light of love, it is also used to describe the tengu, who are said to be the founders of the Art of Ninzuwu. In our article, entitled, The Tengu: Protectors of the Shinto Mysteries & Founders of the Art of Ninzuwu, we discuss this in detail. in any event the tengu. In any event, we find some deep similarities between the Tengu and Choronzon.

Choronzon is said to exist in a spiritual wilderness, the dweller in the Abyss. He stands between at the “crossroads”, sort ot speak, before the adept reaches enlightenment, wherein the destruction of the ego must occur. Interestingly, in some traditions, Sarutahiko-no-Okami is said to be an ancestor of the tengu. Sarutahiko-no-Okami, in a similar role to that of Choronzon, is described in the Nihon Shoki as the ‘guardian of the eight crossroads.’The Tengu are also associated with Susanoo-no-Mikoto, who, like Choronzon, is perceived as a sort of trickster deity, but teaches through karma, as often seen in Shinto mythology.

The difference, however, between Choronzon and the Ninzuwu, is that the Ninzuwu, besides being a state of consciousness, is seen as immortals who dwell beyond the realms of duality, but also function as emissaries of the Divine World, often referred to as Nyarzir. In The Ivory Tablets of the Crow, we read:

“Nyarzir is the beginning of the path, and it will teach thee the wisdom of the Nine Books of Dreams.”

However, it should also be remembered that Nyarzir a state of being within and some of its description in The Ivory Tablets of the Crow are metaphoric. Yet, it is also a dimension that exists outside of the physical realm. Nyarzir also describes a race of beings that the Ninzuwu pay homage to. Notice that is written in The Ivory Tablets:

“Now the Nyarzir exist beyond the worlds of time, and never leave their abode. Therefore, a petition must be made to the Bride of Nyarzir.”

Interestingly, we find that Nyarzir holds the same gematric equation as Pazuzu:

Nyarzir in English Gematria is 666 and in Simple Gematria 111.

Pazuzu in English Gematria is 666 and in Simple Gematria 111.

This concludes the first part of our study, but not our investigation.
