The Grail texts by Jan-Anton van Hoek, is
part of his book "Tekenen uit de Nabije Kosmos" (Signs from the
Nearby Cosmos). As the Grail is getting renewed interest, I am giving a
more lengthy introduction to the text of van Hoek.
While opinions vary
as to the original inspiration for the idea of a Holy Grail, it is widely
accepted that a grail, or graal in old French, (serving dish or bowl) first
appears in a work of medieval French literature, Perceval, le Conte du Graal
(The Story of the Grail), written in the late 12th century by the poet Chrétien
de Troyes. Here a young knight marvels at a radiant dish emanating light
that he sees as part of a procession at a king’s banquet. Awed into silence,
the knight fails to ask about the stunning object, but later meets a hermit
who explains the dish holds a single Mass wafer that keeps the crippled
father of the king alive.
Not much later, in the early 13th century,
Robert de Boron writes a grail story called Joseph d’ Arimathie (Joseph
of Arimathea). This is the first explicit depiction of the grail as the
chalice or cup used by Jesus at the Last Supper. In the story Joseph uses
the chalice to catch drops of Christ’s blood as he is preparing his burial.
When Joseph is imprisoned, the legend says that the grail helps keep him
alive and his descendents eventually bring the revered chalice to the West,
where it becomes the fabled object of knights’ quests.
Other texts described
the Grail as a chalice, a stone, an emerald.
Where the idea of a Holy
Grail originates has long been the subject of debate and varied theories.
Many scholars believe the notion of a grail imbued with magical qualities
comes from a pagan Celtic legend that told of a cauldron of plenty, or vessel,
that was a source of endless nourishment and regeneration. The Celts came
from a group of immigrants called the Battle-Axe folks. They immigrated
into Europe from the steppe lands of Southern Russia. As you will read in
the texts of Jan-Anton van Hoek many geographic names sound very Indian,
India being south of Russia. Steppe lands are also mentioned. However the
time period in his texts is more than six thousand years ago, when the Grail
It is important to know that Jan-Anton van Hoek wrote these
texts down as he heard them in a cosmogenic
way. One could also say that these texts exists in the Akashic records of
the earth. The texts were probably once books written down about events
that actually happened but slightly changed into a myth also. It is important
when reading these texts to keep this in mind. Also important is to be aware
that the physical and the etheric or spiritual world are not two separate
worlds. They are both in the here and now and interpenetrate each other.
The etheric world is a world of energy forms and beings who create and maintain
the physical world. When we read that the Grail was thrown into the ether
and is still there, we need to understand that thus the Grail can be contacted
by everyone with vision. As the forms in the spiritual world change according
to the seeker's belief system, the Grail may appear to him differently than
to another person. Thus many Grail stories have formed, and they are all
true. As a spiritual seeker you must understand the nature of the world(s),
the creative energies and the nature of man. Only then you will understand
that the different Grail stories are not conflicting.

The Throwing of the Grail
The Disappearance of the Grail is the subject of
the following essay. It details the throwing away of the holy Chalice by
the White Emperor, and the finding of the Grail by one of his successors
who provided the Grail with a lid. Hereafter the Chalice remained in possession
of the line of Emperors, until Hoetan threw away the Grail again, but now
inscribed with runes.
The White Emperor created the Grail and pondered
the future of the Chalice, knowing that it had to be thrown into the Universe
in order for the Grail to do its work. Thus he asked himself: "From
where shall I throw the Chalice, for each place on earth to have equal chance
to receive it? The mountains in between the two seas are high, but they
provide not enough vision nor throwing distance." He called his councilors
into the Great Audition Hall.
"Give me advice", he ordered, "where
can I find that point, from which I can oversee the earth, and from which
the arrows from my bow can reach the farthest corners?"
and the masters of ceremonies didn't have an answer. Thus Goedân dismissed
them. He withdrew into his quarters to reflect the matter. The empress approached
him, bowed and offered him fragrant wine in a golden chalice.
is on your mind?", she asked, while her fingertips touched his sleeve.
"Most Beautiful Woman, these are difficult matters,
of which not even my councilors know the answer."
Agya, the Beautiful,
said:" Thus my Lord has made the Chalice, which has received the luster
and salvation of the Three Fathers, from the Birdheaded One, from the Sun
Emperor, and from Noer, father of Your Majesty. Would my Lord, who has made
the Chalice from lifeless loam, have knowledge of what flows forth from
the building of the world?"
"You are questioning me deep, O
Empress", the White Emperor answered, "infinitely deep. How do
you view the world's building?"
" The world, o highly Goedân,
has been built as a house", the Empress said, "and every house
has a roof, this one too. If you want to look beyond the house and throw
far, than you must go on the roof. Thus, you my Lord, will go on the roof
of the house, the Roof the World. There you must go, and from there you
will throw the Chalice in the direction of cosmic destiny."
emperor understood that she was right. he stayed with her that night, but
he had decided to act without delay the next morning.
The next morning
the Gong of Arya, held up with logs, sounded through the city of Rayipoer.
This meant Great Council. Immediately, couriers jumped onto the saddle to
speed to the sovereigns of distant and conquered areas. They had to send
their councilors to the Court to advise the Arya. It took the length of
a moon until all of them arrived at the Great Audience Hall to answer the
Lord's question of how he should travel to reach the Roof of the World.
Many councilors dissuaded the emperor of the long and fatiguing journey
it would be. After all, none of them could answer his question. Then the
word was given to the councilors of unfamiliar rulers who were also invited
into the Hall. One of them, Maguhari, ambassador of Soedar, the king of
Munsdar said: "As the Lord of Righteous has decided to travel to the
Roof of the World, may he know that from Munsdar some of our priests have
undertaken journeys to the Roof of the World, and that this destination
is reachable from my country. When Your Majesty travels to the lands north
of Munsdar, he will approach the Roof of the World."
of the lord of Gelen, the land of silk, whose name was Oeiti, bowed and
said: "Thus the ambassador of the mighty Oeiti knows: from his land
a caravan trail leads to the lower part of the mountains south of the Roof
of the World. If Arya follows this road to the areas described by Maguhari,
the ambassador of the king of Munsdar, soon the road will be open into the
mountains and leading to the Roof of the World."
is good, and one is similar to the other. How do I move into the mountains,
and even more: how do I get through them?", the emperor asked.
knew the answer to this, not even Maguhari, the ambassador of Soedar, or
Tayin, ambassador of Oeiti.
The Reshid spoke, leader of the Hamâni, a
tribe of traveling animal breeders, east of Körsim, the Eastern Sea. He
was at the court as representative of the leaders of herds people in that
"Lord", Reshid said, "the mountains are dangerous
and inhospitable. Traversing them is completely needless and superfluous
ordeal for your company. Follow me: sail over the Eastern Sea, land on the
shore, and ride through beautiful virgin lands until the land rises and
lead you to the Roof of the World."
"The road through the Lands
of the North is as dangerous as the one through the High Mountains.",
"Yes," Reshid answered, "from your country!
Because you must first travel through the dessert of the Dry Sea. But before
we arrive at the coast thereof, we change direction to the south."
cold will be harmful for the well-being of His Majesty." Mughari said.
cold in the High Mountains is stronger and the journey through the mountains
" The horses will not survive this journey to
the Roof of the World and back," Beloen said, the Supreme Guardian
of the Solar Seal.
"Before the Roof of the World will be visible,
we will change to ride on mountain animals. They will bring Arya and everyone
else safely to the Roof of the World and back. When we come back, we will
change again to horses."
Goedân stood up and said:" Thus Arya
speaks: Reshid, leader of the Hamâni, ambassador of the people of the steppe,
accept Our trust and take charge of the preparation of the imperial caravan,
because We will leave for the Roof of the World without delay."
Reshid bowed and said that he would need six times six days before the caravan
of the White Emperor would be able to leave.
Goedân gave him his blessings
and dismissed all present.
Reshid send messengers to the other leaders
of the steppe people in order for them to organize a great caravan of camels,
dromedaries, horses, donkeys and other animals, with tents, food, wine and
everything that was necessary to undertake a journey to the Roof of the
World, and in order for it all to be ready at the other side of the Eastern
Sea when Arya and his company would land. The leaders brought together sixty
camels and dromedaries, six times sixty horses and as much donkeys and other
animals. They took care of other needs, both for Arya and his company, because
they themselves came with six times hundred people to accompany the Supreme
Reshid send other messengers to the lords who ruled in the areas
between the eastern steppes and the Roof of the World to announce the arrival
of Goedân in order for them to receive the emperor and his company in a
hospitable way and to feed the animal riders.
The White Emperor gathered
his Small Council and gave orders about how to rule the Empire during his
absence. He summoned Tura and Dünar, his sons, made them kneel before him
and said: "Rule the Empire in my place, you princes, and think about
who you are. Let yourself be advised by the empress, your mother when compassion
applies, and by Beloen, the Supreme Protector of the Solar Seal when severity
applies. Send me messengers weekly to inform me accurately about your ruling.
Use the Eastern Hall of Audition and not the Great Hall of Audition. Be
seated on the marble seats of princes and not on the Imperial Throne. Use
the princely insignia and not the imperial one. You, Tura, my oldest son,
will wave the golden whip of justice, and you, Dünar, my youngest son, will
use the gold basin of alms."
Goedân gave his sons his blessing and
send them away. He went to the empress' quarters to great her before beginning
his long journey. When her spouse was announced, Agaya the Beautiful was
spinning golden flax and she radiated brilliance. She stood up and said: "That
the Gods may lead my Lord, but also me and our sons who will rule the empire
in his absence."
"They will be guided by you, beautiful Agaya.
In you I put my peace and trust. Let the musicians and dancers come, let
food and drink be served and let us enjoy ourselves, because it will long
before we will be reunited."
The empress gave her orders and they
spent the evening together in her quarters.
In the early morning, the
bronze gates in the outer walls of the imperial palaces opened. Goedân was
carried in his palanquin and blessed the ecstatic kneeling people, being
high above his surrounding company, slow but driven to the small port where
his ship was ready, staffed with well fed row slaves, the skipper and his
man looking stern for the slaves and humble for their supreme lord, who
soon set foot upon the ship and who blessed once more his capital city.
The ship left and the oars moved in unison through the water, through the
river followed by escort ships. For a while the emperor watched the harbor
disappear, then he turned and went to the bow to burn incense for the River
God, after which he conversed with the skipper.
Around midday the small
fleet arrived at the Eastern Sea. As soon as the ships entered open water
the skipper had the sails hoisted and had the oars retracted. The salves
were now able to move freely within the allotted space. Now the deck sailors
had their work with sail and rope. A favorable wind blew the ships east.
The White Emperor enjoyed the beautiful weather. The skipper, who had not
been comfortable in relation to the well-being of his supreme lord and passenger,
now relaxed, as the River God had made them arrive into the open sea and
as he saw that Goedân was joyously making offerings to the Spirits of the
The fleet steered course to Yoerti and entered the harbor without
difficulty, after which the disembarkation started. The city council had
appeared at the port to pay respect to Arya, and the people were already
lying down on the earth when the White Emperor came by in his palanquin.
Goedân gave thanks to the Gods, the Spirits of the Sea and the western wind
in the temple of the harbor, and he gave alms to the needy. He accepted
the gifts of the city council and the priesthood, and he had the gifts sent
to Raipoer, his capital city. However, the edible items, like dates, olives,
pastries and wine, were added to the caravan. Goedân spent the night in
the palace of the city curator. He refused the recommended festivities,
and ordered the hour of awakening at one hour before sunrise. At sunrise
the imperial company would be leaving to Kirwanapoera, the encampment from
where the caravan would undertake the journey to the Roof of the World.
Having arrived at the encampment, the emperor summoned Reshid, the leader
of the Hâmani, ambassador of the leaders of the herds people eastern of
Körsim, and said: "Your knowledge of this area is greater than mine.
Tell me what is the best we can do!"
Reshid kneeled and answered: "The
first areas of land are still your Majesty's, After that there are the steppes
of the Hâmani and of six other tribes. Reshid was born over there, as son
of Hatik, the eldest son of Reshid the Elder. He grew up there, until Hatik
sent him to the Court of Arya. When Hatik died, the tribal elders choose
me as leader, and I became ambassador for the seven tribes at the court
of Arya. I do know the open steppes and its tribes. The Spirits of that
place are favorable to me, because in their eyes I am a conscious and devout
man, and I know the needs of my tribes. I am not worthy to lead the caravan
of Arya, to order where Your Majesty orders. But if you, O Emperor, require
my guiding services, I will obey."
The Emperor was pleased with
the Reshid's words, and he trusted the caravan to the hands, eyes and nose
of Reshid. Reshid immediately organized the caravan with great agility,
dismantled the encampment of Kirwanapoera, divided the weight, built up
the escorts and divisions, and sent scouts ahead in order to be able to
estimate and guarantee the safety of the caravan.
Everybody mounted their
riding animals. The White Emperor was riding a beautiful chestnut colored
horse with gilded leather harness. At his side was Reshid, who rode a beautiful
red brown horse, and at he other side was Goedân's personal servant Ram,
son of Lelly and Maliken, on a black and white horse. The sun shone down
on the caravan. The caravan was shining in many colors and metal, a large
army, which did not come to sow destruction. Ram offered his lord a golden
chalice: how this faded in comparison with the Chalice Goedân had in his
saddle bag! The emperor drank the wine and offered the remains to the earth
and gave the order to the caravan to leave. The caravan slowly moved.
The journey through the eastern areas had the blessing of heaven. The rain
was such that the ground was green without being boggy; the dust remained
on the roads without turning to mud. The sun was guiding the White Emperor
on his journey to the Roof of the World. The caravan passed through the
areas of Seven Tribes. One of their leaders, Reshid, leader of the Hamâni
accompanied the emperor also being the guide of the caravan. The other leaders
joined Arya and brought him honor tributes. They invited him into their
royal tents, offered him food and drink, and he gave them his blessings.
Subsequently the caravan arrived at Noega, whose tributary king payed honor
to Arya. The king of Soejoe did likewise. Then they arrived in the areas
of the non-tributary kings. First the king of Kolcha, than the one of Goecha,
then the king of Chima. Finally they arrived at the lake Achumba. The king
of the land around it was called Sarchin. He was the last king before the
Roof of the World. He also paid honor to the White Emperor; likewise did
Panyin, the special ambassador of Oeiti, the supreme lord of Gelen, who
had traveled to Sarchin's court to pay honor to Arya. He said: "Let
me accompany Arya to the Roof of the World, where I have been before on
the order of Oeiti."
Reshid said: "O Emperor, allow him, because
he would be a better guide than Reshid."
The emperor gave the authority
to Panyin, Oeiti's embassador, who organized the change to mountain animals
and the preparation for the journey ahead. Now Rashid rode behind the emperor
and Panyin at his side. The caravan moved slowly, but the hoofs of the animals
were finding their way with certainty. The mountains winds calmed down and
the Spirits of the Earth enjoyed the company of Goedân.
The Emperor studied
the messages his sons Tura and Dünar had sent with couriers. The messengers
told of the most important events in the capital city. The emperor was satisfied
with the princes and the affairs in the city Rayipoer and the Empire. He
read the epigramical letters of Agaya his spouse, and happiness engulfed
The air got thinner and colder, but Goedân created spiritual-bodily
warmth in himself. He sat umoved on his riding animal. the Spirits of Snow
were astonished and said: "Great is Goedân, that we cannot affect him.
Let us go before the wrath of the Gods inflames!" They disappeared,
and it became lighter and warmer around the caravan, the roads before smaller,
and soon they had to ride in a single line until they arrived at the shoulder
of the mountain. Panyin got down from his riding animal and made a wide
moving gesture towards the mountain plain. Silvery mist moved over the plain.
The Roof the World had been reached.
(note of Jan-Anton van Hoek: I did
not get any specific impression about the features of the Roof of the World,
not even enough for a reconstruction. It is definitely a plateau at great
height. Except for what is implicit, I cannot give any further information.
The essence of the Grail story is not lessened by this.)
The White Emperor
went to the rock in the middle of the Roof of the World and mounted it.
In his hands he held the hemp bag, closed with tar, in which once had been
the loam, but now it contained the holy Chalice. Everybody held their breath.
During the long journey they had become familiar with the presence of the
emperor, but they became full of respect when he slowly removed the cover
from the Chalice. A brilliance radiated over the Roof of the World. Spirits
rushed forward from earth and universe.
The White Emperor said: "It
has been said that the holy Chalice would be thrown over the earth and that
it is destined where it will rest, and that this will happen from the Roof
of the World, in order for the King of the World to find it, the fifth Immortal
One! Thus it will now happen."
Having said this, he bowed far backwards,
the Chalice in his right hand. He raised up and threw it in a round movement
into the ether.. But the Chalice returned, and it floated around the Roof
the World. Everybody was astonished. After having done this for five times
it suddenly disappeared and the brilliance over the Roof of the World stopped.
Goedân and his company made offerings to Heaven and Earth, and returned
to the court of Sarchin, king of the lands around the lake Achumba, where
they said farewell to Panyin who left for Oeiti, his lord.
caravan, after having changed animals, returned to the Empire Between the
Seas, blessed by Spirits and elements, blessed also by the lords and leaders
on their journey, and by the Spirits of the Sea and the God of the River.
(note of Jan-Anton van Hoek: Here this report ends, but we can complement
it by the Account of the Grail, from Emperor Sindra, the seventeenth ruler
of the Empire Between the Seas. He ruled six hundred years after the White
Emperor. In his fortieth year of rule Sindra sent a letter to his grandson
and successor Valer-Hoter, who lived in the northern steppe, on his journey
from a chastening applied by him to the rebellious leader of Kyh. The text
is short and fragmented, as you will see.)
Account of the Grail
by Emperor Sindra
Sindra, the emperor, spoke to Valer-Hoter the heroic: "We
received message of your victory over the rebel Sunix, lord of Kyh. You
put him right, plundered him and took his possessions. You installed his
cousin Garba as Our tributary vassal. You have done what is right in Our
eyes. You sent Us wooden boxes with amazing things and strange treasures.
Among this was a lead shrine of heavy weight that could not be opened, because
it did not have a door or drawer. Therefore spare the life of the jewelers
of Kyh and bring them with you to Our Court, to discover the secret."
Thus it happened, but the jewelers did not know anything about the lead
shrine. Only a magician, who also had been captured, advised Arya to melt
the lead in order to open the shrine. This they did, and the Emperor said: "
This is the Grail, which once was made by my tribal father Goedân, the holy
White Emperor, who threw the Grail at The Roof of the World. The King of
the World would find the Grail and lead mankind in light out of the world
which he would destroy. Does this terrible burden rest on my shoulders?"
But everyone knew that Sindra could not be the King of the Earth. To him
Darud, the High Priest, spoke: "It is sure that once the King of the
Earth will find the Grail, even if Arya found it earlier, and if the people
of Kyh found it even earlier! Your Majesty should not be concerned about
the Grail: the third finder will be the King of the earth."
ordered: "Make a wide cover for the Grail and put it in a round temple
on the holy mountain north of Rayipoer. Bring priests to the temple to venerate
the Grail, twelve in number and who are initiated into the holy mysteries
and who know the Book of Spirits and the Book of the Own Self., as the Immortals
have written it during and after their presence on earth."
it happened on the order of Sindra.
After Sindra many lords ruled over
the Empire that finally fell apart during the reign of the thirty-second
one, Hoetan. A large part of the Arian people moved northwest. The emperor
took the Grail under his personal guard. When he had conquered new territories,
he inscribed the Chalice with holy runes, expressing the key to the universe.
He placed the cover made by Sindra, in the middle of his round shield, making
it the symbol of rulership. He covered the Grail itself, with the runes
Ansoez, Poerisaz, Teiwaz, Sowoele, Dagaz and Ing, with holy loam, gave it
wings and threw it away as a bird in order for the Grail to bury itself
in the subterranean Grail Castle. There it awaits the arrival of the King
of the Earth.
The Thirteenth Priest
(note from Jan-Anton van Hoek: from what follows
we will see that the Grail, inscribed with runes by Hoetan, and thrown as
a bird, into the subterranean realm is guarded by twelve wise Spirits of
the earth who pay honor and take care of this Symbol of the Sun until at
last the King of the Earth will appear.)
Ansoez the Divinity, Poerisaz
the Great Spirit, Taiwaz the Executer of Justice, Sowoelo the Sun, Dagaz
the Light and Prosperity, and Ing the Fertility - their runes were inscribed
onto the Grail before he enveloped it with holy loam and threw it away,
into the Universe, like a bird. The holy Chalice of
Per sank into the middle of the earth crust and
underneath it, and was received by the twelve inhabitants in the Middle
Cave. They are Spirits of the Earth and they received the Grail with joy
and spoke: "Let us take care of of this small item and pay it honor,
because it is certain that the Spirit of Per is in this Chalice. Let us
make a castle which is a temple, and let us be the knights and priests of
Thus they did. They removed the loam from the Chalice
and they guarded it and honored it in its castle which they built in the
Middle Cave. When they had fulfilled all this, they wondered and said: "Will
the Chalice always be with us. Will the Chalice which harbors the Spirit
of Per and which will certainly belong to a Great Spirit will be claimed
by him? Then what will happen to us?"
One of them spoke up and said: "Let
us ask this with the runes. Let us cast the runes and read what will be
the destiny of the Chalice, and of us who guard it."
agreed. The one who had spoken took the rune inscribed wooden splinters,
spread them on the Cloth of Prediction and cast the pieces of wood as Hoetan
had instructed to all who wanted to hear. The splinters fell and were arranged
in the right way, and being turned over. The runes became visible and their
"The runes have spoken, having cast as
Hoetan taught: twelve are you, Wise Ones from under the earth, Spirits of
the earth, knights and priests of the holy Chalice. Each one of you has
wisdom in his area. together you are in charge of all wisdom on earth. Therefore:
when Hoatan, the emperor of the runes, threw the Chalice, it looked for
its dwelling here. You welcomed it, took care of it in the castle and temple
you built for it. Thus it will be a long time. At the end of the present
World Month (note: read Reflections on the old
and new World Year) he will come who has the right on the Chalice. he,
the Thirteenth Wise One, the Thirteenth Priest and Thirteenth Knight will
be king of you all. You will serve him and be knight in everything because
he is the King of the Earth. In him all your knowledge is united. He will
be among you and among the people. His spirit will penetrate the world."
The twelve priests were astonished and glad about the revelation of the
runes. Some of them wanted more information because they desired to know
how long they would have to wait for the King of the Earth. But he who had
performed the ceremony refused because what the runes do not reveal is knowledge
too early to gain.
When the time had come, the Twelve were seated together
in a circle around the boulder which had been polished as a mirror on its
top. It was situated at the bottom of a thirteen foot high pedestal on which
the Grail rest, lighting and almost overflowing of the holy liquid it contained.
Twelve stone stools stood around the round table like hollowed out dolmens,
of which the seats were covered with braided fragrant grasses; one each
for every priest. Between the first and the twelfth one there was one space
unoccupied. This was a bluestone and porphyry throne with a seat of artistically
woven grasses. This throne remained empty, waiting for the one who would
take seat rightfully, the King of the Earth, the King of the Grail, The
Lord of the Castle, the last one of the Five Immortals. He was waited for
by the Grail, by the twelve, and since long by mankind, the world. More
than six thousands years ago the Grail had been created. Almost six thousand
years had passed since Hoetan, the Lord of Runes had thrown it and the Grail
Castle had been formed in the Middle Cave, situated under the middle of
the earth crust. Thus that long the twelve Wise Ones were waiting - knights
and priests of the Grail - for the arrival of their master, the Thirteenth
Wise One: The king of the earth.
In the Hall of the Table, where they
had taken seat, no other light shone than that from thirteen candles, and
high up the holy and benevolent brilliance of the Grail.
it was then,
that in front of the respectful and astonishing eyes of the twelve, that
the atmosphere in the throne began to compact. First there was only a pale
green color, than a haze that became less amorphous and started to take
a clear shape. What appeared was the characteristics of a serious, majestic
being, looking over far distances, staring through the spheres, through
all of them who were around him. Then the Grail raised itself from its pedestal
and landed in the open hands of the unknown being. The Grail trusted itself
with complete surrender to its hands and embraced him with all its light.
The Thirteenth One spoke: "You I have looked for, you are my chalice
and you will quench me, for as long as my presence on earth lasts. You will
be my symbol of the Empire of the Earth!"
Having said this, he would
have brought the holy Chalice to his lips if the Grail didn't raise his
hands to his thirsty mouth. The Thirteenth One drank from the life giving
fluid, the sap of the sun, and his arteries swelled with power and glow
The twelve stood up from their chairs, very moved and fulfilled
with joy. They went to the throne and bowed one by one with the knightly
knee before the one they recognized as their expected king. He provided
them all with the fluid of the Chalice, after which, with a gentle hand
gesture of the king, it floated up to its thirteen foot high pedestal.
The Arian lords from Sindra up to and with Hoetan
were all Grail Kings, because the precious object was under their care in
a special temple. They were sixteen in number, after Goedân, who as creator
of the Grail was the first one in the lineage. After Goedân the North Arian
Empire was ruled by eight more emperors. It fell apart three centuries after
its creation into small rulerships. These eight lords were not Grail Kings,
because the Grail had gone into the subterranean castle, and was waiting
for the arrival of Xhamantagh, the Thirteenth Wise One, The King of the
Knowing that the presence of the Grail should also be perceptible
above the earth in order to keep mankind seeking and finding a part of it,
The King of the Earth blessed a man Hertyr, named the Bear, who was a fighter
and loyal to the Gods. The King of the Earth made him serve justice on earth
with twelve knights on horses, and made them live in servitude. He created
a worldly mirror image of the holy Grail from the Middle Cave, and gave
Hertyr a seat in a castle, showing him every year the life giving Grail.
After Hertyr a series of supernatural Grail Kings ruled, all named Hertyr,
accompanied by priest-knights, who got their knowledge from the wisdom of
the Thirteenth. They were druids by the people. The Hertyr, Tyr's heir,
ruled over an empire, although small but very much respected. The druids
kept much of their knowledge secret. Much of it was never recorded.The power
of the I, the Self was known to them, and they were completely familiar
to the World of Spirits.
The appearance of the Grail cured the ill, and
the Hertyr could read in the Chalice the future, when it appeared once a
year in the castle; they also could converse with the earlier Grail Kings.
Almost seven hundred years after the arrival of Xamantagh a voice spoke
to the Hertyr with the apparition of the Grail: "The time of untrue
prophet has come. His followers will steal everything and bring mankind
into ignorance. They will create themselves a god who will call himself
the only one. They will try to destroy the ones who are faithful to the
Gods. They will bring misery over mankind and the Light will dim. They will
undermine empires which will collapse. Wailing will resound in the Nearby
Cosmos. They will claim to bring light, but only darkness will be their
message. They will say they will give love, but they will show nothing else
but jealousy. They will preach charitability but in their teaching will
be hidden the scorpion of cruelty. Cleverness will make their system believable.
Sensing the approaching truth, they will paint it as a lie. They will rule
mankind with force and deception almost till the end of the World Year.
They will try to put their hand on almost everything, and their aggression
will have no boundaries and and try to engulf the whole earth. They will
try to claim everything. The goodness they cannot show they will claim to
have it nonetheless. The Grail too they will claim, saying that it comes
from the untrue prophet.
After him other untrue prophets will rise and
gain in followers. They will create many other false gods. In many parts
of the inhabited earth, the ones true to the Gods will be exterminated like
animals. But the Gods will not bulge, and the human spirit under their care
can only sleep, it will not die. It will wake up again at the end of this
World Year. Then it will be time for the new Grail Kings, new of nature
too, because the Grail will be in the small temple of everybody's I. Anybody
who will recognize the Grail in oneself will be a Grail King, with the twelve
knights of his senses. he will keep the temple clean, with open doors, visible,
but not accessible.
The Thirteenth Wise One, the King of the earth, will
manifest himself to whoever's I has eyes."
Thus the voice from the
Grail spoke to the Hertyr and druids of the supernatural Precious Thing,
which presently is being sought by so many. They only have to clean the
temple of their heart to discover it and to bath in its light. The time
has come for this with the new, Wakening or Primal Self World Year which
is beginning, and in which man has no longer a need for masters or saviors,
because he himself now has these qualities.
The earlier ancient Grail
stories are only an introduction for all this.
