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.

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 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
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.
