Who is This Dashing Gent? Is it me?

Postby Luce » Sat Mar 19, 2016 9:56 pm

Who is this guy? I want to be him.

It's identified as ra-hoor-khuit, but I don't see harpocrates, so I was wondering if this really was ra-hoor-khuit or if it was Heruraha. I can't find a picture of Heruraha so I don't even know if he has a visual depiction... I know RHK and HPK are two sides of the same coin though, but I don't know how to really take this (if I should see Heruraha as a combo of two gods, of as one God with two sides).

This is the cover of Tantric Thelema, apparently.

I get that it's the three characters of Liber Legis (globe is hadit; sky is nuit), but if seems like he's missing his other half if it's just ra-hoor-khuit.

On a related note, why isn't Heruraha the third speaker of the book? It seems like it would be more complete? Or is it because harpocrates is silence so he IS there, just in the Silence?

I have this thought that we are hadit, the all is nuit, and so when we become one with nuit (the all) we become ra-hoor-khuit? Is this right? How do we become Heruraha, or do we?

EDIT: I'm also confused on who heru-paar-kraat is. I read online that it's just another name for hoor-paar-kraat, but 776.5 has both the names. I'm doing some research on this site, but haven't found anything conclusive so far.

- Ra Hoor Khuit.
- Because Ra Hoor Khuit is.
- The answer is in the question.
- You found the answer.
- That's a pretty decent thought.
- It's certainly one way to interpret things.
- Achieve Knowledge & Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel and then cross the Abyss.

Thank you.

I'm thinking that's why ra-hoor-khuit is so domineering and can't tolerate weakness, and is generally more difficult for people to accept. Because he represents attainment, K&C, and is therefore me when I become an Adept.

Do you know if it's possible to have a visual representation of Heruraha? Like, if one wanted to do God forms of him? Or is the closest thing Atu XX, where harpocrates is overlayed doing the sign of silence?

I'm interested in assuming this as a God form, but because RHK seems to be more of Crowley's take on Egyptian deities, I'm unsure what pose it would be. Atu XX has RHK in the God pose, where as the image I posted has him in full lotus.

Atu XX is my go-to.

Someone with more experience can correct me if I'm wrong but, prior to K&C (or at least the final lead up to K&C), I can't see any use in a god-form of HRH. There's an intentional binary in his two halves (manifest & unmanifest, speech & silence) that need to be integrated separately.

Liber O directs you to sit in the God posture or the characteristic pose. If your research doesn't point you toward a characteristic pose, then go with the God posture. Or go back to the source and check out Stele 666.
