Statue of Pazuzu

Over 90% of the passages found in the Simon Necronomicon can be traced back to Ancient Mesopotamian texts. For quite some time, I was curious about a particular passage concerning Pazuzu in the Simon Necronomicon’s Urilia Text, which reads as follows:

“and it is the able magician indeed who can remove PAZUZU once he has laid hold of a man, for PAZUZU lays hold unto death.”

Statue of Pazuzu

In order to understand the origins of these words, we must first consider what is mentioned about Pazuzu in the Simon Necronomicon’s introductory notes. Under the subheading The Devil, we read:

“PAZUZU was a prime example of the type of Devil of which the Sumerians were particularly aware, and which they depicted constantly in their carvings and statues. The purpose of this iconography was to ward off the spiritual – and psychic – circumstances which would precipitate a plague, or some other evil. “Evil to destroy evil.”

Now this passage raises up an interesting question for the Necronomicon Practitioner of analytical thought. If Pazuzu was summoned by the Ancient Mesopotamians to ward off evil wouldn’t this be the same function as the “Watcher”? This question is answered in the Urilia Text’s passage bout Pazuzu. The origin of this description of Pazuzu is found in Spiritism And The Cult of the Dead in Spiritism by Lewis Bayles Paton states:

“When once a man had entered Sheol the Babylonians believed that it was impossible for him to return to life again. The Underworld was “the land of no return,” or “the enduring dwelling.”  Its watchman, the “Lurker of Nergal,” does. not release when once he has seized a man.”

It is interesting that we find the description of the Underworld’s Watchmen is the same as what is mentioned concerning Pazuzu in the Simon Necronomicon:

“and it is the able magician indeed who can remove PAZUZU once he has laid hold of a man, for PAZUZU lays hold unto death.”

Based on a comparative analysis of this text, we can safely say that Pazuzu’s description in the Urilia Text does have an authentic origin and will be examined further in the second part of this discussion.

  1. Looking forward to part two! Would Baphomet also be the personification of the watcher as well then?

    Hey warlock asylum. I would like to correspond some ideas concerning pazuzu. I have talked to several people about the topic but none with an element of shinto involved that you might be able to add. Now point in being, your a busy dude and may not be available to chat with just anyone. With that in mind i reveal this. I have literally spoken to pazuzu, the ancient akkadian defiler of the defilers who is truly the only real threat against the demuirge yahweh and his temporary cosmic dominion. Even more spectacular is that he literally asked me if i would agree to him using my body as a vessel of incarnation into this realm once again. Needless to say i agreed. That being said i hope word of mouth is enough to prove what i have spoken of, at least relative to the necessity of suspending your disbelief long enough to help you prioritize the need for such a correspondence between us. I hope simply by word alone i have merited your attention time and effort to coalesce some ideas and brainstorm together on the extensive implications of me contacting you, seeing as how he seems to be a favorite of yours. If or when you make time to speak, i can provide further verification of my claims.

    Contact me via please

    Hello again master warlock. Here is a video of my own style of ninjutsu or intuitively channeled martial art/martial dance. I was wondering if you could watch it and critique whether or not you feel i have potential as a martial artist or if it looks like the channel was successful. Also i recently recieved a copy of your atlantean necronomicon. Great words amd especially the chapter on pazuzu. My question is this, in our day to day lives what is the most efficient act of rebellion we can manifest in a simple, ritualistic, consistent, moment to moment basis against mundanity and our imprisonment within 3 dimensions. I have been on this qliphotic path for over 10 years and despite my wealth of knowledge, fear that i have very little practical psychic weaponry to use in battle against the enemy that is rearing before me. I seek an apprenticeship. I dont want to learn from a mundane martial artist i need spiritual power. It is truly only to protect myself and others. My intention is benevolence. But it is never that simple unfortunately. Please give me a way to privately contact you, or at the very least may i have some type of pertinent wisdom to chew on warlock?

    1. Thanks for the message. Applying to a formal martial arts school for training would help in matters of psychic self-defense and martial arts development. Formal martial arts training is important before seeking to develop your own style. I don’t take apprenticeships. Just share info from my experience. I would check for a martial arts school in the area where live so that you can learn hands on. Here is one example:
