TEMPLE OF THE SEVEN SPHERES



Since the days of the first rites it has been thus:
Datu must sanctify the temple and command the sacred space.
I am Datu!
I have set myself a kingdom that I might leave behind the realms of powerlessness and judgement.


With my left hand I wield the savage darkness (katu). With my right hand I wield the healing light (tebu).

I have bathed in the waters of Enki and have been made pure.
I have laid my head in the pure lap of Ishtar and have been blessed.
I have supped at the cup of wonder and have eaten of the bread of life.

I am Datu!

With these words, the Datu mage opened a magical rite.  

 

Translated into common sense english they mean this:

From the time that this tradition began, this has been the statement of our intent: 
 To be Datu is to be like the pendulum.  To be like the pendulum, is to be centered when still and connected to the center when in motion.
 
I am like the pendulum:
For I have educated my body, mind, and spirit; and seek their unity as my  temple. I have taken  responsibility for my actions and my life, so that I may cease to be powerless; and am never forced to base my identity, ego, worth, or place in the world on the judgements and verdicts of others.
I may pass at will between dark and light, because I understand both. I have been initiated as mage & priest.
I view the magnificent world with childlike wonder, and I live each moment here and now as though it were my last moment on earth.
 I am like the pendulum.

We are non-profit institution dedicated to the preservation and distribution of the written and oral traditions of the Datu.


THE DATU:

The Datu were a group of DIVINERS, PRIESTS, MARTIAL ARTISTS, MAGI, ASTROLOGERS, CONSULTANTS, HEALERS, AND PHILOSOPHERS, that traced their lineage to seven body guards that served Sharrukin the second of Assyria.
These individuals were united by the study of ancient Assyrian, Sabian (Harani), Persian, and Greek mysticism; as expressed through a series of magical symbols that date back to pre-sumerian times.
These figures called Geomantic figures spread through out the world, along with a game commonly called mancala or wari. These figures have become the central figures of Chinese "I Ching", African "Ifa", and Arabic "Al Raml" divination. They are spread (and adapted) through all regions, from Asia to Greece. They are even seen among modern western rites, and can be found in the works of Agrippa and the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.

THE ORDER OF THE WATCHERS:
The SHARRAUSSA were a group of diviners and priests, that were warrior monks.

TIBIR: MARTIAL ARTS OF THE DATU:
The martial art of Tibir is an hidden style. It is said to go back to 750 B.C. and to be based on the battle of a mongoose and cobra. Research is ongoing into its origins, and practical physical application is likewise ongoing

THE HANOCHEM:
The word Hanochem is a bastardization of the Aramaic word "hanoch" meaning 'to know'. A Datu master is said 'to know his path". The Hanochim took the word to mean "anakim" meaning "eater of sin, fallen".

This offshoot of the Datu was established by a disenchanted Datu apprentice named Hamin. He created a mix of traditional Datu teachings (such as he had learned before leaving the Datu)and the Sabian mystical traditions of Haran (where he found his new teacher)

Determined to twist the Datu teaching into tools for their own gain, they were much like Modern Satanists in as much as their true diety was Ego not the dark beings they worshipped. They were brought to justice and no longer exist as a seperate entity. Their nefarious deeds, and the works of cults like them, contributed to Edessa becoming the first Christian city.

Their teachings were added to the records of the Datu for the sake of preservation, and the events leading to this may be found on their history page.


Dulakaba Shanaku.
is the 'Custodian' of the tradition. The tradition was passed to him by Inaz Nag Hasom, 29th Emissary of the Guraga aka Datim in Minneapolis, Minn., Sept 22, 1992. DULAKABA holds the following titles in custodial trust:

30th  King-gi-a of the Libish aka Sharraussa

30th Abba of the Guraga aka Datim

15th Lugal of the Beth Hanochem

40th Umi of the Guraga aka Tibira

Research continues into this system by application of its teachings coupled with examination of practical results. These pages are for preservation of information
