Thoth Reveals Himself in Ancient Egypt: Master of Light and Dark Arts


Thoth reveals himself in ancient Egypt: THUNDER rolled, lightning flashed, the veil of the Temple was rent from top to bottom. The venerable initiator, in his robes of blue and gold, slowly raised his jeweled wand and pointed with it into the darkness revealed by the tearing of the silken curtain: “Behold the Light of Egypt! ” The candidate, in his plain white robe, gazed into the utter blackness framed by the two great Lotus-headed column between which the veil had hung. As he watched, a luminous haze distributed itself throughout the atmosphere until the air was a mass of shining particles. The face of the neophyte was illumined by the soft glow as he scanned the shimmering cloud for some tangible object. The initiator spoke again: “This Light which ye behold is the secret luminance of the Mysteries. Whence it comes none knoweth, save the ‘Master of the Light. ‘Behold Him!” Suddenly, through the gleaming mist, a figure appeared, surrounded by a flickering greenish sheen. The initiator lowered his wand and, bowing his head, placed one hand edgewise against his breast in humble salutation. The neophyte stepped back in awe, partly blinded by the glory of the revealed figure. Gaining courage, the youth gazed again at the Divine One.

Thoth is the Egyptian god of writing, magic, wisdom, and the moon. he was often depicted as a man with the head of an ibis or a baboon, animals sacred to him. Thoth led “the Ogdoad”, a pantheon of eight principal deities. Other forms of the name ḏḥwty using older transcriptions include Jehuti, Jehuty, Tahuti, Tehuti, Zehuti, Techu, or Tetu. Multiple titles for Thoth…many names, many faces…Please watch the video for more information on the Egyptian god of Wisdom Thoth also known as Hermes Thrice Great at mythology explored by ANCIENT MYSTERY on Youtube.
