Anunnaki Demon Anzu

The mysterious Anzu Bird, the winged fallen Demon of ancient Mesopotamian belief. A very dark character, veiled with love and light. An entity of many names and many faces. Who or what is IT? The most mysterious Anunnaki I have came across is certainly the demonic Anzu. The elements of this figure can be found almost everywhere…yet nowhere. The Anzu Tablet predates the Seven Tablets of Creation which has been overlooked by many in their quest for the truth. A big mistake. Anzu or Zu is a lesser divinity or monster found within in several Mesopotamian religions. He was said to be conceived by the pure waters of the Apsu and the Earth, or as son of the goddess Siris. (Patron of Beer). Anzû was depicted as a massive black bird who can breathe fire and water, known as the “divine storm bird” and is the “flood storm weapon” of the Anunnaki gods although Anzû is alternately depicted as a lion-headed eagle. He is also known as the Rockh the darkness, the black bird and the Thunder bird. According to Thorkild Jacobsen, the demon god was originally envisioned as a huge black thundercloud in the shape of an eagle, and was only later depicted with a lion’s head to connect it to the roar of thunder. This demon consisting of half man and half bird, stole the “Tablet of Destinies” from Enlil and hid them on a mountaintop. In Babylonian myth, Anzû is an Anunnaki deity associated with cosmogony. Anzu also appears in the story of “Inanna  and the Huluppu Tree”, which is recorded in the preamble to the Sumerian epic poem Gilgamesh, Enkidu, and the Netherworld. Anzu also appears in the ancient Sumerian poem Return of Lugalbanda or Lugalbanda and the Anzud Bird…although, Zu/Anzu also goes by the name Lugalbanda…”food for thought”. The shorter Old Babylonian version was found at Susa. Full version in Myths from Mesopotamia: Creation, The Flood, Gilgamesh, and Others by Stephanie Dalley, page 222 and at The Epic of Anzû, Old Babylonian version from Susa, Tablet II, lines 1-83, read by Claus Wilcke. The longer Late Assyrian version from Nineveh is most commonly called The Myth of Anzu. (Full version in Dalley, page 205).

Ishtar the Great Mother of the Anunnaki

Ishtar the Mother of the Anunnaki. A look into the true nature of the Great Mother Ishtar. She appears to have a parasite of sorts… Ishtar was undoubtedly a goddess of the fertility of the earth. She was the ‘Great Mother’ who fostered all vegetation and agriculture. She is frequently addressed as ‘Mother of the gods,’ the Anunnaki, and the name “Ishtar ” became a generic designation for “goddess.” But of course these were later honors. When her cult centred at Erech, it appears to have speedily blossomed out in many directions, and, as has been said, lesser cults probably eagerly identified themselves with that of the Great Earth-Mother, so that in time her worship became more than a Babylonian cult. Astrologically she was identified with the Planet Venus , but so numerous were the attributes surrounding her taken from other goddesses with which she had become identified that they threatened to overshadow her real character, which was that of the great and fertile mother. More especially did her identification with Nin-lil, the consort of Enlil, the storm-god, threaten to alter her real nature, as in this guise she was regarded as a goddess of W-battle. It is rare that a goddess of fertility or love achieves such a distinction. In some texts we find that, so far from being able to protect herself, Ishtar and her property are made the prey of the savage Anunnaki Enlil, the storm-god. Enlil “His word sent me forth,” she complains; watch the video… The poem, which in its existing form consists of 137 lines in cuneiform characters, appears to be incomplete. We are not told therein the purpose of the goddess in journeying to the ‘House of No-return,’ but we gather from various legends and from the concluding portion of the poem itself that she went there in search of her bridegroom Tammuz, the sun-god of Eridu. Ishtar is certainly one of the most important characters of this region.

Lord and Master of The Anunnaki

The Anunnaki Lord and Master Bel, the earlier name is Enlil, found in very early inscriptions, especially in those of Nippur; of which city he was the tutelary deity. He was described as the ‘ lord of the lower world,’ and much effort seems to have been made, to reach a definite conception of his position and attributes. His name had also been translated ‘lord of mist.’ The title ‘Bel’ had been given to Merodach by Tiglath-pileser I about 1200 B.C., after which he was referred to as ‘the older Bel.’ The chief seat of his worship was at Nippur, where the name of his temple, E-Kur or ‘mountain-house,’ which was applied to sanctuaries all over Babylonia. He was also addressed as the ‘lord of the storm’ and as the ‘great mountain,’ and his consort. Nin-lil is also alluded to as ‘lady of the mountain.’ Enlil is undoubtedly of the class of tempest-deities who dwell on mountain peaks. The second tablet of a text known as the ‘crying storm’ alludes to En-lil as a storm-god. Addressing him it says : “Spirit that overcomes no evildoing, spirit that has no mother, spirit that has no wife, spirit that has no sister, spirit that has no brother, that knows no abiding place, the evil-slaying spirit that devastates the fold, that wrecks the stall, that sweeps away son and mother like a reed. When En-lil, the lord of lands, cries out at sunset the dreadful word goes forth unto the spacious shrine, ‘Destroy.’” Nippur, the city of Enlil, was of Sumerian origin, so we must connect the earliest cult of Enlil with the Sumerian aborigines. Many of his lesser names point to such a conclusion. Some authorities appear to be of opinion that because En-lil was regarded as a god of vegetation the change was owing to his removal from a mountainous.The truth is, it would be difficult to discover a god who wielded the powers of the wind and rain who was not a patron of agriculture, but as he sends beneficent rains, so also may he destroy and devastate. The word lil which occurs in the name Enlil, signifies a ‘demon,’ and Enlil may therefore mean the Anunnaki ‘chief-demon.’ This shows the very early, animistic nature of the god. In the trinity which consisted of Bel, Ea, and Anu, he is regarded as the ‘god of the earth,’ that is, the earth is his sphere, and he is at times addressed as ‘Bel, the lord of the lands.’ Created, Narrated and additional information by A.Christie Information: Professor A.H.Sayce/folklorist and occult scholar Lewis Spence & A.Christie

God the Spirits and the Totem of the Anunnaki

God the Spirit and the Totem of the Anunnaki. An Anunnaki documentary looking into the ancient Spirits that swarmed in ancient Babylonia. The determinative or symbolic written sign for ‘ spirit ’ is the same as that for ‘god.’ Thus the god and the spirit must in Babylonia have had a common descent. The manner in which we can distinguish between a god and a spirit, however, is simple. Lists of the ‘official’ gods are provided in the historical texts, whereas spirits and demons are not included therein. Just as the great gods of the universe were apportioned their several offices, so were the spirits allotted almost exactly similar powers. Thus the Annunaki were perhaps regarded as the spirits of earth and the Igigi as spirits of heaven. as they are designated in an inscription of Rammannirari I. In any case they belong to a very early period in the Babylonian religion. The god Anu, the most ancient of the Babylonian deities, was regarded as the father of both companies, but other gods make use of their services. The Anunnaki do not appear to be well disposed to humanity. The Assyrian kings were to invoke them, when they desired to install a fear of their majesty in the people, and from this it maybe inferred that they were objects of peculiar fear to the lower orders of the population There can be no doubt as to the truly animistic character of early Babylonian religion which is further explored in this Anunnaki documentary. Signs of totemism are not wanting in the Babylonian region as in other religious systems. Many of the Anunnaki gods are pictured as riding upon the backs of certain animals, an almost certain indication that at one time they had themselves possessed the form of the animal they rode upon. Thus the sun-god of Kis had the form of an eagle, and we find that Ishtar took as lovers a horse, an eagle, and a lion — surely gods who were represented in equine, aquiline, and leonine forms. The fish-form of Oannes, the god of wisdom, is certainly a relic of totem-ism. Some of the old ideograph representations of the names of the gods are eloquent of a totemic connection. Thus the name of Ea/Enki, the god of the deep, is expressed by an ideograph which signifies ‘antelope.’ Ea/Enki is spoken of as ‘the antelope of the deep,’ ‘the lusty antelope,’ and so forth. He was also, as a water-god, connected with the serpent, a universal symbol of the flowing stream. Merodach/Marduk may have been a bull-god. In early astronomical literature we find him alluded to as ‘the bull of light.’ The storm-god Zu, as is seen by his myth, retained his birdlike form.
