PM3002: Principles of True Cabbala

The purpose of True Cabbala is to restore the tradition of Cabbala to its original glory, through the divine guidance offered by the religion of Maratreanism. This means removing the corruptions which have accrued within Cabbala over the centuries and millennia.

Sefirot: In true Cabbala, there are not ten sefirot, but rather thirteen. One way of approaching this, is to consider Ain, Ain Sof, and Ain Sof Aur to themselves be three preliminary sefirot, rather than a reality existing prior to the sefirot. Rather than there being twenty-two paths between the sefirot, there are thirty-seven.

The following additional observations are provided:
  • the sefirot can be divided into two groups, the upper sefirot, numbering four, and the lower sefirot, numbering nine
  • the sefirot can be divided into three pillars: left, centre and right. To the left pillar belongs the second, to the right the third, to the centre belongs the first and the fourth. These are all among the upper sefirot. Among the lower sefirot, the fifth is the first among the centre pillar.
In accordance with true numerology, the numbers from one to thirteen can be assigned the following meanings: one means unity, the ever-remaining, the Great Sabbath, and love between two. Two means duality, including the two Lesser Sabbaths, and love between three – this is enamouration first in its fulness. Three means Trinity, including the Three Sabbaths. Four refers to self-love and self-pleasuring: the mystery of divine masturbation. Fifth is the most fertile of numbers. Six is the firstborn of five. Seven is a secondary, independent fertility; eleven follows seven in like manner, and thirteen follows eleven. Eight is firstborn of six, and nine is second-born of six. Ten is firstborn of seven. Twelve is second-born of seven. Thus is the meaning of the first thirteen. We may use these numerical understandings in understanding the thirteen true sefirot and the thirty-seven paths between them.

The pentagram corresponds to 5, and the swastika corresponds to 13. The swastika placed within the pentagram symbolises the union of 5 and 13, which is the first and the fourth fertilities coming together as one. The swastika must be displayed with four dots between its arms.
The divine emanations reflected by the sefirot should also be understood in terms of: the procession of gendered roots, the procession of racial roots, the sacred animal tribes and subtribes. The two holy trees: that of souls, and that of universes. The holy emblem: a tree rising out of the sea.

One should also study the emanations as taught by Neoplatonics and Gnostics. It is worthwhile to study correspondences between the sefirot and path and innumerable other matters, but one should take care that one discovers only true correspondences and not those due to corruption. For example, we may hold that there is no correspondence between any of these matters and any animal unsacred; and any astrological correspondences must follow true astrology.

Gematria: Gematria is to be practiced in accordance with the numerological system taught by the holy Travancus.

Gematria, Notaricon and Temurah may only be practiced with a true scripture expressed in a sacred language. A true scripture may be taken to be whatever the Prophet-in-Council has decreed to be a true scripture, and a sacred language may be taken to be whatever the Prophet-in-Council will decree to so be. The following we hold are not sacred languages, nor shall they ever so be: English, French, German, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese, Mandarin, Modern Standard Arabic, Modern Greek, Modern Japanese, Modern Korean – several others could be added to that list. The following may possibly have been sacred languages in the past, and may become sacred languages again in the future, but we affirm that whether or not they have ever so been, if they have so been, they have ceased to so be: classical Hebrew, classical Greek, classical Latin, classical Arabic, classical Persian, classical Sanskrit, classical Pali, classical Tibetan, classical Tamil, classical Chinese, Old Church Slavonic. Until a sacred language has been revealed to us, and a sacred script – which we declare shall not be the Latin script – then though we may learn the principles of true Gematria, true Notaricon and true Temurah, we may not practice them.
