(THE CHAPTER OF NOT DYING A SECOND TIME).

"The Osiris Ani, whose word is truth, saith:- Hail, Thoth! What is it that hath happened to the children of Nut? They have
waged war, they have upheld strife, they have done evil, they have created the fiends, they have made slaughter, they have
caused trouble; in truth, in all their doings the strong have worked against the weak. Grant, O might of Thoth, that that which
the god Tem hath decreed [may be done!] And thou regardest not evil, nor art thou provoked to anger when they bring their
years to confusion, and throng in and push in to disturb their months. For in all that they have done unto thee they have
worked iniquity in secret. I am they writing-palette, O Thoth, and I have brought unto thee thine ink-jar. I am not of those who
work iniquity in their secret places; let not evil happen unto me.

The Osiris, the scribe Ani, whose word is truth, saith:- Hail, Temu! What manner of land is this unto which I have come? It
hath not water, it hath not air; it is depth unfathomable, it is black as the blackest night, and men wander helplessly therein. In it
a man cannot live in quietness of heart; nor may the longings of love be satisfied therein. But let the state of the Spirit-souls be
given unto me instead of water and air, and the satisfying of the longings of love, and let quietness of heart be given unto me
instead of cakes and ale. The god Tem hath decreed that I shall see thy face, and that I shall not suffer from the things which
pain thee. May every god transmit unto thee his throne for millions of years. Thy throne hath descended unto thy son Horus,
and the god Tem hath decreed that thy course shall be among the holy princes. In truth he shall rule from thy throne, and he
shall be heir to the throne of the Dweller in the fiery Lake [Neserser]. In truth it hath been decreed that in me he shall see his
likeness, and that my face shall look upon the face of the Lord Tem. How long then have I to live? It is decreed that thou shalt
live for millions of years, a life of millions of years. Let it be granted to me to pass on to the holy princes, for indeed, I have
done away all the evil which I committed, from the time when this earth came into being from Nu, when it sprang from the
watery abyss even as it was in the days of old. I am Fate and Osiris, I have made my transformations into the likeness of
divers serpents. Man knoweth not, and the gods cannot behold the two-fold beauty which I have made for Osiris, the greatest
of the gods. I have given unto him the region of the dead. And, verily, his son Horus is seated upon the throne of the Dweller
in the fiery Lake [of Neserser], as his heir. I have made him to have his throne in the Boat of Millions of Years. Horus is
stablished upon his throne [among his] kinsmen, and he hath all that is with him. Verily, the Soul of Set, which is greater than
all the gods, hath departed. Let it be granted to me to bind his soul in fetter in the Boat of the God, when I please, and let him
hold the Body of the God in fear. O my father Osiris, thou hast done for me that which thy father Ra did for thee. Let me
abide upon the earth permanently. Let me keep possession of my throne. Let my heir be strong. Let my tomb, and my friends
who are upon the earth, flourish. Let my enemies be given over to destruction, and to the shackles of the goddess Serq. I am
thy son. Ra is my father. On me likewise thou hast conferred life, strength, and health. Horus is established upon his tomb.
Grant thou that the days of my life may come unto worship and honour".
From this the Lodge and Order,calles upon Geb to ground the Temple,and the Beer Oblation with Baked bread is passed around.Once this is done,all rise and stand in the" Isis in Opening position" and thanks is given to the Sun and Moon.(Incantations Inner Temple Secret)More bread and beer is placed upon the thurable...The Tet and Djet upon the Altar is passed and kissed by all except the heirophant.Then all are led in a twenty-one round circumamulation 'Against the Sun" all intoning....one each round...
"Annnnheeeeeee,Aaaaaaaaaahhhhhh-Kaaaaaaannnsssuuuuuuuuu-Iiiiiiaaaaoooooooooooooo"
Heka,Heka,Heka,Aaaaaaaaahhhhheeeeeeeooooooooaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh"
Then all are lead to the Portal of Openings at the ATON Temple Gate...all stand around it..and the Lodge and Order together recites....
