Initiation Temple of Asar (Osiris) Course –Lesson 1

Udja

Welcome to the INITIATION TEMPLE OF ASAR (Osiris) COURSE PROGRAM

This is a self-paced course wherein you will be working in a process to “initiate” yourself into the spiritual wisdom and mysteries of the Temple of Asar (Osiris) by means of traversing a particular sequence or path while pausing in certain sections and studying and meditating upon special teachings, rediscovered and translated by Sebai Dr. Muata Ashby.

This sequence connects all of the sections of the Temple in a coherent and mystic journey from ordinary human to initiate and Enlightened being.

You will make use of a special VIRTUAL REALITY web page that will afford the capacity to see a 360 degree spherical view of the Temple, and thus be able to immerse yourself in the teaching that will be presented in a way heretofore not achieved previously except by going to Egypt in person. This course program seeks to use the most affordable and best technology to achieve an initiatic study program setup by Dr. Ashby while at the same time augmenting that by allowing the participant to gain a more intense experience to reinforce and deepen that teaching.

 

WORKING WITH TWO BOOKS

AFRICAN RELIGION Vol. 4 ASARIAN THEOLOGY

You will also begin working working with two books that will be provided below as ebooks. The first is the AFRICAN RELIGION Vol. 4 ASARIAN THEOLOGY so that you may familiarize yourself with the Asarian myth upon which the mystic teaching of the Temple is built. The myth of the Asarian Resurrection is integral to the teaching presented in the Temple. As such you as an aspirant are the Asar being discussed in the myth and in the Temple. Therefore you are to study this teaching by referencing the book and the video presentation while you spend time in this section of the Temple.

ANCIENT EGYPTIAN HIEROGLYPHS FOR BEGINNERS

This course makes use of direct readings and studies of the panels of the Temple so it will be even more helpful if you have at least a basic introduction to Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs (Medtu Neter). So you will have the opportunity to work through the book as you progress in the program beginning with lesson 1 and by the time you encounter the first main panel you will have some introduction that will actually help you assimilate more of the teaching and gain more benefits as you move forward through the program.

DESCRIPTION OF WHAT YOU WILL SEE IN THE 360 WEB SITE FOR LESSON 1

You will appear at the entrance to the first open court of the Temple but even before you enter there are introductory items including a video and pictures. Then you will be able to follow the encircled arrows that you can use to move between areas that you are allowed to move through during a particular lesson.

In lesson 1 you will go to the entrance of the Temple and receive the first initiatic teaching after the introduction. Here we will begin to see the Temple in the distance and discover the glories of the opportunity before you while doing purifications in the second open court of sacred water wells. Here you will also prepare to move forward by first re-familiarizing with the Myth of the Asarian Resurrection and introducing yourself or refreshing yourself on the basics of Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs.

TASKS TO BE COMPLETED

As in ancient times, you will not be able to move forward until all elements of the lesson are completed.

These are:

  1. Completing the lecture viewing, [View the video of Dr. Ashby lecturing on the particular Temple section and teachings given by the hieroglyphic texts]
  2. Book reading assignments, [complete the reading assignment for the particular lesson]
  3. The Temple section examination [you will be asked to do two examinations]:
    1. Examine the area of the Temple you are in during this lesson (by spending time in the 360 degree spherical site) and describe how it feels at the beginning and end of the lesson in terms of feelings about the Temple, and the Neteru (gods and goddesses) you will meet there, and
    2. Describe the teachings you are receiving (from the direct panel readings or other sources) there and how it relates to your journey. Then post these thoughts in the discussion forum for the particular lesson.
  4. Section meditation practice [each section will have a particular meditation practice you are to follow while you are working on the particular lesson. Each day you spend in this section of The temple you are to practice the special meditation of this section.[Optional]You may or may not share your experiences in the forum and if you need special private assistance you may contact us (Sebai Maa or Seba Dja) for assistance.

HIEROGLYPHIC STUDY ASSIGNMENT

  • In this lesson you are to be introduced to the hieroglyphic writing system of Ancient Egypt.
  • This lesson is not designed to provide an in-depth understanding of the Medtu Neter but just to introduce it to give an understanding of the basic principles. In this way your studies of the philosophy from the hieroglyphic text that will be presented will be more rewarding and interesting as opposed to just receiving a translation.
