The Holiest of All Mantras





a ka dua
tuf ur biu
bi a’a chefu
dudu nur af an nuteru

“O High One!
May he be praised!
The one great of Power!
The Spirit great of Dignity, who places fear of himself among the gods!”

Crowley’s paraphrase of the Stele in translation is included in Liber AL vel Legis:

"Unity uttermost showed!
I adore the might of Thy breath,
Supreme and terrible God,
Who makest the gods and death
To tremble before Thee -
I, I adore thee!"
Liber AL III-37










The third glyph on the second line of the front of the Stele of Revealing shows a standing human figure with arm(s) outstretched towards a feather.

Reading from right to left, this glyph is the first of the series that continues through the first glyph of the third line (a horizontal, squibbly line over three flags) and gives us in transliteration, the mantra found in the Gnostic Mass (see text above).

The melody for the chanting of this is proscribed by Crowley in Magick in Theory & Practice.
