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 was created.
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?"
The councilors 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.
"What is on your
mind?", she asked, while her fingertips touched his sleeve. Goedân
"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."
The 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."
Tayin, ambassador 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
"Your council 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.
Nobody 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 area.
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.", Tayin said.
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."
"The cold will be harmful
for the well-being of His Majesty." Mughari said.
"The cold in the
High Mountains is stronger and the journey through the mountains takes
" The horses will not survive this journey to the Roof of
the World and back," Beloen said, the Supreme Guardian of the Solar
"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 Lord.
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
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 Sea.
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
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
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."
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 him.
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.
The imperial 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
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?"
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
Arya 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."
Thus it happened on the order of Sindra.
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 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 the Chalice."
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."
The others 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 interpretation
"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
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 of
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
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 Earth.
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
