Plate 78. TABLET OF HY’YI.  

Invocation read:

1. Mithra said: You**** that invoke Me, the Swift, Shining, with sword uplifted. Invoke me on the Tablet of the sun, and the world, and the crown, high raised. Bow down low and say:

2. Behold, the rose, deep rooted in the earth. Jehovih rise in majesty of All Light. His colors no man make, nor know any man the cause. This subtle perfume, whence come it, and whithergo it? What power fashion''' it, and propel it?

3. O You, unseen Om! Is my spirit like perfume? Whence come it, and whithergo it? Give me of Thy Mithra,20 O Om!

4. Make my heart look upward to You*, You all Pure, Heavenly! Wife, and Spouse and Mother! You that come, I adore You*!

5. The corporeal world hast You, O Jehovih, placed in the midst of the lowest places, bringing forth. Bind my soul not to it, You All Going-forth.

6. My heart no longer look''' downward; my corporeal passions have I subdued. Yea, even the diamond binds me not, the highest shining corporeal thing.

7. You, O Corporeal Sun, burning and full of flame, that bringest forth the corporeal, growing harvests, hear me proclaim the All Eye that create, making the souls of men. You, O Corporeal Sun, that makest of the things that are made, what a glory is your**! But far off, and nearer than You art, O Sun, is Jehovih, Who create without things that are made, the All First Creator. Hego forth, Jehovih. He come Om, the Bride and Mother, nursing with full breasts.

8. O you Moon, hear my upward soul aspiring above all corporeal things! You, my Love and Majestic and ruler of waters and winds, I adore You*. But a greater, the All Great Om, fed you*. From her breasts wert You, O moon, high upraised. Eolin, the Mighty, touched You* with his little finger and You hast sped on. Come You to me, O Om, spouse of the Seen and Unseen.

9. O you**** Stars, full of shining in the high heavens. Who can measure your far-off places? Who can see your great corporeal majesty? O what a glory is yours, thrown in the high heavens! Thither, far, the soul of my forefathers roam full of praise and prayer. Make me all pure, O You Om, that I may ascend.

10. Send forth Thy Crown, O Eolin, Creator of all moving things. O Thou Incomprehensible and full of glory! Make me oblivious to all corporeal things, and fill me with Thy going-forth forever.

11. Make me to look not backward nor to myself, but to behold Thee, O Jehovih, and Thy Lords and Thy Gods, strong in majesty and spirit high-soaring, forever! Amen!

19 These Tablets were engraved on inlaid tables, called family altars, around which the family sat for spirit communion and prayer. The father led in repeating the invocation, and the wife and children spoke in concert. After the Israelites left Egypt, the graven tables were abolished, but invocation at the family table was continued, and is even to this day amongst some of the Jews (so-called).
20 Mithra the first was about 4,000 years before kosmon. Mithra the second was about 2,000 years before kosmon.
