Liber Resh: An Illustrated ExplicationbyFra. Petros Magister Xristos (8=2)
The Adorations of the Sun as written by Aleister Crowley are as follows. They are to be recitedrespectfully and with full vibratory force in the appropriate order depending on the time of day(dawn, noon, sunset, midnight.) For dawn, face East. For noon, face towards the South. For sunset,face West. For midnight, face to the North.Hail unto thee who are Ra in thy risingEven unto thee who art Ra in they strengthWho travellest over the heavens in thy barkAt the uprising of the Sun.Tahuti standeth in his splendor at the prowAnd Ra-Hoor abideth at the helmHail unto thee from the abodes of Night!Hail unto thee who art Ahathoor in thy triumphingEven unto thee who art Ahathoor in they beautyWho travellest over the heavens in thy barkAt the midcourse of the Sun.Tahuti standeth in his splednor at the prowAnd Ra-Hoor abideth at the helmHail unto thee from the abodes of Morning!Hail unto thee who art Tum in thy settingEven unto thee who art Tum in thy joyWho travellest over the heavens in they barkAt the down-going of the Sun.Tahuti standeth in his splednor at the prowAnd Ra-Hoor abideth at the helmHail unto thee from the abodes of Day!Hail unto thee who art Khepra in they hidingEven unto thee who are Khepra in thy silenceWho travellest over the heavens in thy barkAt the midnight hour of the Sun.Tahuti standeth in this splendor at the prowAnd Ra-Hoor abideth at the helmHail unto thee from the abodes of evening!After the appropriate invocation for the correct division of the day has been recited, the follow prayeris to be vibrated; it derives from the Stele of Revealing and is a portion of the Great Invocation therein.

as well, thus reinforcing its significanceto the Aeonic liturgy.Unity uttermost showed!I adore the might of thy breath,Supreme and terrible GodWho makest the Gods and DeathTo tremble before thee!I, I adore thee!Appear on the throne of RaOpen the ways of the KhuLighten the ways of the KaThe way of the Khabs runs through meTo stir me or to still me.AUMLet it fill me!The light is mine, its rays consume me.I have made a secret Door into the house of Ra and TumOf Khepra and Ahathoor.I am thy Theban O Montu,Thy prophet Ankh-na af-Khonsu!By Bes-na-MutMy breast I beatBy wise Ta-NechI weave my spellShow me thy star-splendor, O Nuit,Bid me within thy house to dwellO winged snake of Light HaditAbide with me, Ra-Hoor-Khuit!Now follows a brief interpretation of some of the major significances of the names invoked above.
 
Ra
Major deity of the Sun. Pronounced either Rah or Ray. The word itself can be interpreted simply as'sun' or alternatively 'creative one.' Originally however, Tum (Atum) was the progenitor deity, laterunseated by Ra.Ra shares many symbols with other solar deities, especially Horus. He is usually depicted wearingthe pharaoh's crown, and always with the solar disk upon his head encircled by the
wadjet
(cobragoddess, symbolic of kundalini raised to the
sahasrara
chakra.)Ra travels across the sky (both above
and
beneath the earth) in his Solar Barque; during his nighttimepassage beneath the earth, the boat protects the solar energy from extinguishment in Amenthe-Duat(the underworld.) Additional protection is provided by another occupant of the barque, Set, whoguards it actively from the various teratomas of the underworld, especially the serpent Apep (atavisticresurgence or uncontrolled kundalini) who tries to swallow the boat.Thoth (Tahuti) and his consort Ma'at navigate the boat in the prow; Horus in the form of Ra-Hoor-Khuit (Horus energized by a linkage with Ra) steers it at the rearward-located helm.
