Teachings of the Ašipu – A Collection of Exorcisms and Incantations – Part 1

niš ilãni rabûti utammêka
“In the Name of the Great Gods, I exorcise Thee!”

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

In this post I will offer to the reader a collection of short exorcisms. Each Initiate who follows the Path of the ancient Ašipu priesthood should aspire to aquire vast amounts of magickal knowledge. One’s personal library should consist of uncounted volumes, all containing the accumulated spells and incantations left to us by our ancestors. For every evil the Ašipu-priest should have a remedy, a cure, in the form of magickal rites and incantations. Therefore I offer you these little gems. That you all may come to possess a wide variety of countermeasures against the Evil Ones. Study them well, and make good use of these ancient writings!

  1. Thank you, Brother. Just wait till my book finally sees the light of day. It will contain uniquely constructed exorcisms, burnings, and incantations that come from my personal library. I’m currently in the process of testing their use, their effects, and how to construct images. Our enemies better beware, for I have already engaged in battle, and wreaked havoc on an evil one, broke his power, and made him flee in fear.

    It has begun…


  2. Thank you very much..This made me get a blank book and copy these to a book of excorcisms and incantations. I got to for the first time see how words were formed.. like alad…and genie…evil and hul, and so forth..thanks


  3. I can’t wait to see what you have to offer, but im sure that is not going to be nothing short from amazing. I would be first buyer of any publication from you my brother. May the Din Gir keep blessing thee!!


  4. Thank you Brother. That is very nice of you. I keep postponing the publication, as i keep coming up with stuff that must be in it. For it would make no sense to get it in print without all the required content. In time it will see the light of day, and with the blessing of the DinGir I hope it will be my first succes as an author.
