OF THE PENTAGRAM
Issued by the
of the Golden Dawn
Touching the forehead, say Atah.
Touching the breast, say IAO.
Touching the genitals, say Malkuth.
Touching the right shoulder, say ve-Geburah.
Touching the left shoulder, say ve-Gedulah.
Place the two palms of the hands together upon the breast, and say le- Olahm, Amen.
Advance to the East, and trace the Pentagram with the proper weapon. Say (i.e., vibrate) IHVH.
Turning to the South, the same, but say ADNI.
Turning to the West, the same, but say AHIH.
Turning to the North, the same, but say AGLA.
Return to the East, completing the Circle, extend the arms in the form of a Cross, and say:
Before me Raphael;
Behind me Gabriel;
On my right hand, Michael;
On my left hand, Auriel;
For about me flames the Pentagram,
And in the Column shines the Six-rayed Star.
Repeat the Qabalistic Cross.
