THE IMPORTANCE of festivals in the ancient world may best be
illustrated in the New Year’s Festival in Ancient Sumer. This is
known as the AKITU Festival (A.KI.TU. = On Earth Build Life), and
was celebrated in Babylon (click below
image) and other cities, the most important being ANU’s cult centre,
URUK (the biblical Erech), on the 1st - 10th of
the month of Nisan. In the Age of Aries this corresponds with the
first decan of Aries.
The original for this festival was the famous state visit to Sumer
paid by ANU and his Queen-Consort ANTU. This occurred circa 3800
In terms of the Time System, this would be:
A. Kalpa 3, Manvantara 7, Mahayuga
28, Yuga 1, Sar 2, Ner 6, Sossu 10. We cannot state with any
certainty which year it would have been. Sar 3, Ner 1, Sossu 1
is when we place the establishment of the Nippur Calendar (i.e.,
B. Age of Taurus, 3rd Decan (23°-22°), most likely the 23°. This
covers the years 3876 - 3804 BCE. It is said that from this
important event, two important things were bequeathed to
1. The New Year Rituals, which
evolved from the Sumerian AKITU Festival, whose roots can be
traced to this event.
2. The Calendar, or the measurement of Time, was granted to
humankind. This led to celestial observations, and to the
creation of a long-running tradition of Astronomer-priests.
In the Kalachakra Tantra, we found that its
origin was as a secret sermon preached by the Buddha at the
time of his famous Vulture Peak Sermon. This sermon was
requested by King Suchandra of
Some people, generally the more
reactionary of the anti-occultists, find nothing but evil in the
name Shambhala. We do not recognize this to be the case. In fact,
what we have found is that Shambhala, like Nietzsche and his ideas,
and just about any other powerful concept or person from the past,
has been co-opted by the fascistic elements in the social-control
department. The New Age is nothing of the sort. In fact for the most
part it is the same damnable thing repackaged, like a warmed-over TV
dinner. Bear this in mind when reading the theories we are
Our theories, based on our research, are as follows:
1. We have identified
Shambhala with the Celestial Palace atop Mount Meru.
is to be found in southwestern Tibet. It is called Mount Kailasa,
where thousands of pilgrims go every year. It is Shiva’s
mountain. Every year, the Bön-pas and the Nyingmapas celebrate a
New Year’s Day festival which is similar to the Akitu Festival.
They erect the phallic pole in the valley below the mountain.
This is symbolic of the antenna-like beacon the
supposed to be. Interestingly enough, not far from this location
we have cave cities which resemble the cave communities in the
Dead Sea region, and those in New Mexico. Mount Meru is
Su-Meru. The earthly Meru is where the focus point, the
communication beacon, as it were, is. And Meru, in the human
body, is the Sushumna Nadi.
2. We could go a step further and suggest that the Kings
of Shambhala are successors to and/or holders of the Anu-ship,
Lord of Nibiru. There is nothing far-fetched in any of this.
It would seem that sometime circa 973 BCE, a new Dynasty of
Kings was initiated, beginning with Suchandra. Perhaps it is due
to some natural cycle that is peculiar to the 12th Planet.
At 173 BCE, the Maccabees started their short-lived rule, and
this facilitated the creation of the Chasidim, which had its
origins in the Chaldean Priesthood, (as Chasdim is seen to be
another term for Chaldean), which led to the Messianic Movement
and to the Essenes and Pharisees. These in their turn led to
Rabbinic Judaism and Gnosticism, as well as the religion called
Christianity by billions today. But, the major events in the
West took place much later than 173 BCE.
Also, this same year, Antiochus Epiphanes seized control of
Coele-Syria and Judea. Two years earlier he seized the throne of
the Seleucid empire. It is this Emperor who had Nemrud-Deg built
in his honor. Perhaps a meeting took place there, between
the Nefilim? Maybe. But in India and Central
Asia, greater things were taking place.
While the dates given in the history of the Kalachakra Tradition
are hard to fix with much certainty, it is clear that in the
year 173 BCE the first KULIKA Initiated so many people into the
Kalachakra Tantra that he was the first to receive the name
KULIKA. In turn, he was the 8th King of Shambhala, each king
ruling 100 years, this means that the first king began his rule
And, too, it was at this time, roughly,
that the Gnostic Traditions in the West were just beginning to
develop, via the various philosophical schools and Mystery Rites.
This is the closest to a confirmation we can get from any source.
The Kalachakra Tradition is not your average bargain basement
tradition! Its main thrust is in the Initiation of advanced Buddhist
monks into the Sand Mandala of Kalachakra. Once the candidate has
been led through the seven gates, and received the seven
initiations, it is possible for them to be received in the court of
Shambhala, says the Dalai Lama is not a place we could
get to very easily, with our poor excuse of technology. It is very
far away, in space. Much like the 12th Planet is very far away, in
The description in the Kalachakra Tantra, of Shambhala is much like
the descriptions given by remote viewers of the Galactic
Administration Centers they saw in their visions, and the same thing
can be said about
Aleister Crowley’s journeys, recorded in
Vision and the Voice, and The Heart of the Master, and perhaps, too,
to some extent, in
The Amalantrah Working.
Nibiru, then, when it approached, appeared in the North. This is
very crucial, since Meru, or Su-Meru, is situated in the North, with
a Northerly Orientation. Shambhala, too, is to the North of Tibet,
and the Kingdom of Light, of the Mandaeans, is in the North, where
the sources of the Celestial Jordan are located. The Mandaeans
orient their temples to the North, with a window which allows them
to see the Pole Star. In the ceremony known as the "Calling," and
the important one, known as the "Walking," in which the Magician is
initiated gradually through the Seven Gates, the Gate is to be
placed in the North of the Magician’s Temple. The gateway that is in
the North, then, would appear to be the four stars in the Great Bear
(originally called the Constellation of the Wagon).

As Earth, and the other planets rotate around the Sun, it appears
that the Sun rotates clockwise, yet the Earth goes counterclockwise
around the Sun, as do the other planets. Nibiru rotates in a
clockwise direction, viz:
Nibiru crossing other Planets’ orbits
Then it would appear that this planet comes toward the
the North, whereas the other planets are visible east to west, along
the southern part of the sky. This would also say that Nibiru is

The rituals associated with the AKITU festival are said to have
their origins in the State visit of ANU and ANTU. ANU and ANTU
bestowed the Calendar upon humankind, as the Kalachakra Tantra was
similarly bestowed, with the endorsement of the Kings of Shambhala.
Such correlations between ritual and astronomical occurrences can be
seen today in the practices of
the Dogon Tribe in Mali, who, every
50 years or so, reenact the activities associated with the Stars
and/or Planets in the
"As Above, So Below" is not just a platitude. There are real events,
real celestial bodies, real persons involved.
Imagine then, enacting on Earth, in Earth-Time, ritual events taking
place in the heavens in Space-Time, simultaneously, and in times
past. This is religion par excellence.
This is not simply the reenactment of the story of a god dying and
being reborn so the crops will grow. This deals with events in our
solar system, not merely aspects of our subconscious or our psyche.
The Enuma Elish is a story which should be read and interpreted by
all who are interested in these subjects, and understood in the
light of The Code of the Eternal.
There are many stories of origins in the Sumerian ’myths’ which give
credence to an Extraterrestrial Origin of humankind, and to the
speculations of Science. Cold, hard, physical fact-based Science.
Science! In fact, it is a definite ’given’ that the first part of
Genesis, in the Hebrew Bible, from the Creation to the Deluge, was
taken from Babylonian and Sumerian originals, both as inherited
traditions, and as material received from the priests of Babylon,
during the Captivity, for we know that the Old Testament was not
written before the Captivity.

The AKITU Festival can be outlined as follows (after

The Akitu festival was celebrated
once a year at the beginning of Spring. In those days humankind
was a part of the natural process, and the ritual acts performed
by humans counted for something. One thing, such acts kept
humankind from going over the brink, into chaos, which was to be
avoided at all costs, that was the law.
It is said that the Akitu Festival derived from two specific
currents of ancient thought:
1. An extremely old
Fertility cult, which included seasonal feasts and a Sacred
Marriage ceremony; and
2. A more recent cosmogony developed by the
theologians of Nippur in which the creation of the world was
credited to Enlil following his victory over Nippur: the
creation of the world was attributed to Enlil after his
victory over Tiamat and the forces of Chaos. This has
parallels in the Enki-ite traditions, because it was first
credited to EnKi, (or EA), who was the original hero to
fight Tiamat. (His name in this case would be Nudimmud).
Later, the credit would go to his son, MarDuk.
Creation of humankind, the regular determination of
humanity’s fate was necessary, so the theologians reasoned,
therefore the annual oracle and New Year festival.
