In much of the Ninzuwu literature, we come to an understanding that many of the words of power mentioned in the Necronomicon by Simon are in fact composite deities, or the names of ancient gods and goddesses that are combined as one term, one divinity.  Composite deities are developed when two or more gods, goddesses, or spirits are linked together. This process is also known as syncretism. An example of this can be seen in our recent article about the Tibetan deity Agni Tara.

There are many benefits that can be gleamed from merging two or more deities together. In ancient times, if two nations were warring between each other spiritually, advantages in such conflicts can be gleamed from adding strength to your hometown deity by merging attributes of another deity into each other forming a new energy with even greater capacity for protecting its people. This principle could also be applied to fertility, healing, and even monetary gods. The sky is the limit as long as nothing backfires. It is even said that as the Israelites triumphed through the land of Canaan that the conquered gods of Israel’s enemies were merged into Yahweh’s form. In the classic work titled Spiritism and The Cult of the Dead In Antiquity by Paton Lewis Bayles, we read the following on pages 235 – 236:

“Of the idea that spirits could take possession of men, causing disease, insanity, or inspiration, a survival is seen among the Hebrews in the fact that diseases such as leprosy rendered one ceremonially unclean. Being caused by rival spirits, they roused the jealousy of Yahweh, and excluded the sufferer from his cult. In later times they were ascribed to the activity of Yahweh himself, who thus absorbed the functions of the lesser spirits; but, with curious inconsistency, the diseases still remained unclean.”

The Necronomicon by Simon makes excellent use of syncretism in its section titled The Book of Names.  Under the fourth name BARASHAKUSHU, we find the word of power as BAALDURU. This word or power can be broken down into two distinct words, which are baal meaning lord and Duru, whose meaning is essential to our discussion.  Who is Lord Duru?

One of the resources that was utilized in composing the Necronomicon’s introductory discussion were the writings of Laurence Austine Waddell. An example of Waddell’s influence on the editor of the Necronomicon’s outlook can be seen in the tome’s Prefatory Notes, where we see Waddell is quoted as a reference:

“As an example, Crowley of (or Aiwass) ends the Book of the Law with the words “AUM.HA.” In the Sumero-Aryan Dictionary by Waddell we read that the word AUM was known to the Sumerians, in almost the same sense that it was, and is, known to the Hindus. It is a sacred word, and pertains to the Lord of Magicians, ENKI. Further, the Greek spelling of ENKI was EA, by which he is most commonly known in the European texts which treat of Sumeriology. In the Greek alphabet, EA would appear as HA. Q.E.D: AUM.HA betrays the essential Sumerian character of that Book. “

It is in the works of Waddell that we find a very interesting definition of the term duru. On page 323 of the Phoenician Origins of Britons, Scots & Anglo-Saxon, we read:

Although calling him “ I-a “ (or Jove), that same word sign was also read by the Sumerians as In-duru, the ” Indara “ of the Hittites, the Indra of the Vedas, the ” Indri-the divine ” title of Thor in the Gothic Eddas. And this name of Indara, we shall find later, is the source of the name and of the supernatural miraculous part of the Church legend of St. Andrew.”

Waddell’s thoughts would later be analyzed by contemporary and succeeding researchers and scholars. Sekharipuram Vaidyanatha Viswanatha in the classic work titled Hindu Culture in Ancient India, states:

“Waddell is of the opinion that it was a monotheism with the worship of Indra ( In-duru ), and the name of this god is derived from daro or daryo, which means sea or water, and this, he says, is identical with the Sumerian duru.”

Based on the information that we have discussed thus far, it is obvious that Waddell defined the Sumerian duru as water and the word of power BAALDURU or Lord Water is a reference to In-duru or the Hindu deity Indra. Thus, we find the definition of BAALDURU as a precise reference to Lord Indra.

Not only do we find a reference to Indra (In-duru) within the word of power for the fourth name among the 50 NAMES OF MARDUK, BARASHAKUSHU, but within the pages of the Simon Necronomicon’s Urilia Text:

“Prepare, then the bowl of TIAMAT, the DUR of INDUR, the Lost Bowl, the Shattered Bowl of the Sages, summoning thereby the FIRIK of GID, and the Lady SHAKUGUKU, the Queen of the Cauldron. Recite the Conjuration IA ADU EN I over it, and build the Fire therein, calling GBL when thou dost, after his manner and form.”

The ”DUR of INDUR” is explained in Waddell’s book The Makers of Civilization In Race & History, where we read on page 79:

“His personal name in Sumerian, as differentiated from his titles, as I have shown in the former volumes and as we shall further find in these pages, was Dar, Dur or Tur; or with the prefix of ” King” or” Lord” (In or Ash or An), it was In-Dar, In-DuTu or In-Dur, i.e , “King Dar, King Dur or Tur.” And it was also shown that he was the historical human original not only of the later Sumerian god bearing those names, but also of the god Indra of the Indo-Aryans, Indara of the Hittites and Mitani or Early Medes, and of Thor or Her-Thor the first traditional king of the Goths in the Nordic epics, the Eddas (wherein he is also called Eindri and Andvara, now seen to be dialectic spelling of Indara) ; and that he was the original King Ar-Thur of the Grail Legend, of which latter we find further and concrete contemporary proof in the next chapter.”

One key element that allows the Necronomicon alchemist insight into the personage of Indra’s corresponding equivalent in the Sumer and our sacred tome in the Chart of Comparisons in the Necronomicon’s introduction. According to Waddell, as cited earlier, Indra is also regard as IA. In the Chart of Comparisons, as seen below, Indra – the God of the waters of the deep, would be none other than EA, or Lord Enki, the Sumerian deity or water. Once again, we are reminded of the layers that the Necronomicon contains within its pages. .

  1. This right here is why I tell people that on the surface level, if you stay there, you will never get it because the book is so layered. MOST grimoires, especially the classic ones, are full of blinds and traps so as to confuse the casual dabbler….great post as usual, brother

    1. Thanks Brother….this is definitely a book from the stellar realms!! Please note that “Duru” also means chief in Igbo 🙂

    Informative. Thank you so much. I have been printing out a great deal of your articles that are greatly informative. As to share it with Ghanaians here in Africa that have taken a great interest in this system. They are so receptive and hungry for this type of spiritual power. It is a big deal here in Ghana. I am also going to purchase a good amount of your books on the topic for those here in Ghana 🇬🇭 that are taking the steps of initiation in the system. I never thought I would be in this position sharing and leading others with this system. Thank you again. Your always on point. 🖤💜
