In the new World Year the time is arriving
that he will appear, who, since the Birdheaded
One, carries the title of the king of the World. He is the responsible
planetary spirit of divine origin in who's hand the earth turns and who
will be the driving force at her destruction. The Holy Four Emperors already
paid honor to the king of the Earth, because their soil and their people
were in his hands and he is worth of honor. Therefore they ordered rituals
in his honor and made him the future, fifth and last immortal Emperor, who,
after fulfilling his task, will take the hands of Per and will go into
Per, as did Arya, Soerya, Noer and the White Emperor.
Of all these high spirits the King of the Earth is the most impenetrable.
For as much as his existence is interwoven with the planet, he equally is
so unearthly as a spirit. For as much as he is shaped by his task -chained
by the earth -,he equally is free and separate of it: characteristic of
his form, incarnated or not incarnated.
The King of the earth can be
frail and almost transparent, or as a giant that heavy! He has many forms
and his eye can have any radiation. Rightly so emperor Noer does not describe
him in the Book of Spirits. The King of
the Earth is indescribable, and it makes no sense to try because the ability
to understand is not adequate for any definition.
Strangely enough, there
was a secret cult for him in tantric-buddhist areas, especially in Mongolia.
But these cults have lost a lot of their power, now the new World Year has
arrived, and for as much as their followers haven't been murdered by the
If one wants to investigate the figure of the King of the
earth and its cult, then one needs to investigate the Tibetan codices, but
also to concentrate on the role of the Great Spirit in the new World Year.
It is also advisable to go back to the previous World year to get a feeling
of what role the King of the World fulfilled in the evolution of our dying
planet, what role he has now and in the future.
When investigating this,
I had at my disposal sources discovered in mystic ways. First there is the
Ritual of the Green Year: this is a description of the spring rituals at
the time of Arya. Second is the Hymn to the King of the Earth which dates
from the time immediately after the White Emperor. Third: The Complaint
of the King, from the environment of the King of the Earth. Fourth and last:
The Song of Shattering, in essence the apocalypse of the Great Spirit.
