The goal of Nazorean Enlightenment is to climb back up the 32 grades of existence until we again come to the Primordial Origin of all things – Amin-Hiya. This is called “Apocatastasis”, which means “the restitution of the former condition”. To reach the highest degree of Nazirutha, and thus “God”, we must return to that oneness that exists eternally in Them. Abba Hiya and Amma Hiya exist inseparably intertwined in a unity unfathomable by all who are not bathed in it. They exist in non-existence, they abide in dual non duality. They are the union of all opposites, unity in diversity, form and not form. They are most perfectly represented by the concept of Wisdom (Oruta) and Compassion (Rahmuta) eternally intertwined and infused. Mar Mani spoke of this return and re-absorption into primeval Oneness when he taught that the transcendent Father had always remained hidden and undefiled and uncompromised by the minglings with darkness, but that at the end of time He would do the following for those who had proven themselves worthy and capable of transcending duality:
“After these things also the aeons…the Father of Greatness will give them that for which they entreat. He will give the grace to His warriors whom He has sent out to the battle of the Darkness. The Veils (velum) will be rolled back together and gathered, and He will reveal His Image (Eikon) to them. All the Light will submerge into Him. They will enter the Store-Chamber and they will leave it again in Glory….” Manichaean Homilies 41:11-17
Red Wisdom (‘ruta) is Heavenly Mother, the Sophia above. White Compassion (Rahma) is Heavenly Father, Divine Love. From Their perfect and eternal union are born Yeshua and Miryam. Yeshua is the Father’s expression of His love outward to all creation, and Miryam is the Mother’s manifestation of Her divine gnosis to all creation. through Yeshu and Miryam we can eventually return to the unity of the Trinity and eventually to the oneness and non duality of the 33° and final Degree of Nazirutha. This is the “Kunzhi, the Base of Everything, of Bon.
This (33°) is actually not a grade but a summation of all 32° previous degrees, thus it is a 0°, or 32². It is the Mystery of the Ineffable spoken of in the Pistis Sophia text.
“He is the invisible Spirit, of whom it is not right to think of him as a god, or something similar. For he is more than a god, since there is nothing above him, for no one lords it over him. For he does not exist in something inferior to him, since everything exists in him. For it is he who establishes himself. He is eternal, since he does not need anything. For he is total perfection. He did not lack anything, that he might be completed by it; rather he is always completely perfect in light. He is illimitable, since there is no one prior to him to set limits to him. He is unsearchable, since there exists no one prior to him to examine him. He is immeasurable, since there was no one prior to him to measure him. He is invisible, since no one saw him. He is eternal, since he exists eternally. He is ineffable, since no one was able to comprehend him to speak about him. He is unnamable, since there is no one prior to
him to give him a name. “He is immeasurable light, which is pure, holy (and) immaculate. He is ineffable, being perfect in incorruptibility. (He is) not in perfection, nor in blessedness, nor in divinity, but he is far superior. He is not corporeal nor is he incorporeal. He is neither large nor is he small. There is no way to say, ‘What is his quantity?’ or, ‘What is his quality?’, for no one can know him. He is not someone among (other) beings, rather he is far superior. Not that he is (simply) superior, but his essence does not partake in the aeons nor in time. For he who partakes in an aeon was prepared beforehand. Time was not apportioned to him, since he does not receive anything from another, for it would be received on loan. For he who precedes someone does not lack, that he may receive from him. For rather, it is the latter that looks expectantly at him in his light. “For the perfection is majestic. He is pure, immeasurable mind. He is an aeon-giving aeon. He is life-giving life. He is a blessedness-giving blessed one. He is knowledge-giving knowledge. He is goodness-giving goodness. He is mercy and redemption-giving mercy. He is grace-giving grace, not because he possesses it, but because he gives the immeasurable, incomprehensible light. “How am I to speak with you about him? His aeon is indestructible, at rest and existing in silence, reposing (and) being prior to everything. For he is the head of all the aeons, and it is he who gives them strength in his goodness. For we know not the ineffable things, and we do not understand what is immeasurable, except for him who came forth from him, namely (from) the Father. For it is he who told it to us alone. For it is he who looks at himself in his light which surrounds him, namely the spring of the water of life. And it is he who gives to all the aeons and in every way, (and) who gazes upon his image which he sees in the spring of the Spirit. It is he who puts his desire in his water-light which is in the spring of the pure light-water which surrounds him. –Apocryphon of John
This 33° represents total non duality and oneness of all opposites. Below this Monad exists a cluster of three degrees, the 32°, 31°, and 30°. These three degrees are the Trinity and the cluster of three degrees which Yeshua, in the Pistis Sophia, speaks of as being just below the one and only Mystery of the Ineffable and above the five Mysteries of the Five Helpers.
The 32° is the Father and Mother in eternal union as the top third of the Trinity.
The 31° is Yeshu and Miryam in Eternal embrace.
The 30° is Mani and his female Paracleetial Consort (Miryai) in Sammadhic union.
The Five Helpers are the Five Buddhas of Buddhism and Manichaeism and the Five Lights of Gnostic literature. They represent the 29°, 28°, 27°, 26°, and 25° of Nazirutha.
25° Vairocana in union with Vajradhatvisvari
26° Aksobhya with Locana
27° Amitabha with Mamaki
28° Ratnasambhava with Pandara
29° Amoghasidhi with Tara.
<She> requested from the invisible, virginal Spirit – that is Barbelo – to give her foreknowledge. And the Spirit consented. And when he had consented, the foreknowledge came forth, and it stood by the forethought; it originates from the thought of the invisible, virginal Spirit. It glorified himand his perfect power, Barbelo, for it was for her sake that it had come into being. “And she requested again to grant her indestructibility, and he consented. When he had consented, indestructibility came forth, and it stood by the thought and the foreknowledge. It glorified the invisible One and Barbelo, the one for whose sake they had come into being. “And Barbelo requested to grant her eternal life. And the invisible Spirit consented. And when he had consented, eternal life came forth, and they attended and glorified the invisible Spirit and Barbelo, the one for whose sake they had come into being. “And she requested again to grant her truth. And the invisible Spirit consented. And when he had consented, truth came forth, and they attended and glorified the invisible, excellent Spirit and his Barbelo, the one for whose sake they had come into being. “This is the pentad of the aeons of the Father, which is the first man, the image of the invisible Spirit; it is the forethought, which Barbelo, and the thought, and the foreknowledge, and the indestructibility, and the eternal life, and the truth. This is the androgynous pentad of the aeons, which is the decad of the aeons, which is the Father. – Apocryphon of John
All these degrees, from the 33° down to the 25°, represent different graduations in the perfect Light World. Its upper third is composed of the 33° that is all degrees. Its middle third is the 32°, 31° and 30°. Its lower third is the 29°, 28°, 27°, 26°, and 25° of Nazirutha. To prepare for entrance into thee higher worlds of yab-yum unity we must first perfect ourselves in all Lower law. Thus there exists the 24° through the 1°’s.
Peace to all . . .
