Book of the Dead


Djedje priests

The picture above, are of ceremony priests attending a funeral to bless the deceased into the next world. The priest wearing the white wig represents the powerful Triads' priesthood order and usually acted as the elder and overseer in all the ceremonies that he had attended.


The book of "Coming forth by Day" better known as "Book of the Dead" today, was a funerary text normally written on papyrus and some were even written on leather used for those who were usually wealthy enough to buy a copy. The quality and the length of the papyrus depended on the deceased person's standing in society of their belonging. The book of "Coming forth by Day" can be found written in hieroglyphics, hieratic and demotic scripts, of which the best scrolls were normally embroidered with vignettes at the top of an assortment of chapters and scenes throughout the highly coveted scrolls. Among the finest existing papyrus scrolls for enthusiastic researchers and hobbyists of Egyptology concerned are those of Ani and Hunefer (19th Dynasty period), and the finest royal examples are those of Queen Nedjmet and Princess Nesitanebashru (21st Dynasty) of which both came from the great cache of royal mummies found in Deir El Bahari in 1881. All these four mentioned papyri can be found in the British Museum in London today.

Tahuty was the original author of "The Book of the Dead" and later became the funeral deity who helped dead pharaohs on their difficult journey to the afterlife realms of the astral world and not to the underworld as most scholars had mistranslated or erred. He is the author of untold numbers of Tamaryan books on topics such as astronomy, astrology, botany, history (of Atlantis), geography, poems, religions, medicine, mathematics and many more that had all disappeared.

During his time in the temple ritual works he carried out, he had more scribes than any other knowledge priests or priestesses, since he had knowledge dating back to the times of the Atlantis age before it was destroyed.

As students of occult magic, know that certain words and phrases have to be pronounced properly. Tahuty in his temple rituals naturally knew how to invoke and intone the words of power, so as to convert the desired thoughts and aims into reality. And he taught priests and priestesses (who were his scribes) how each words of magic should be uttered before the desired thought for the sole benefit of a pure mind and a good heart to become a reality for a good outcome.

The scribes of Tamary copied and recopied the dictations or transmissions of Tahuty, so as to be referred to milleniums and generations later, of which this system of copying was the way the library systems of today came into existence.

The Book of the Dead was a tablet of rituals that every child, man and woman should use in their daily affairs, in terms of acknowledging that life flashes away in a blink of an eye of the God they all have to face to take account of all that they had committed in their lifes.

Tahuty was usually shown as a small ape on the top of scales that weigh hu-man souls, sometimes carrying a pen and a tablet in his funerary works. If the Neter of the Sun Amen Re was not present in the funerary scrolls, he would be normally depicted carrying the eye of Re.

He was seen as the recording Angel of the Book of the Dead by Tamaryans, as he was the negotiating deity mediating the complicated journey of the deceased the permission to enter through the gateway of the afterlife. The deceased had to know the names of every demons (acting as obstacles to the path), fiend, pylon, and everything else (such as the enemies they had, their sins committed, habits).
