1. This is the secret of the Holy Graal, that is the sacredvessel of our Lady the Scarlet Woman, Babalon the Mother of Abominations,the bride of Chaos, that rideth upon our Lord the Beast.
2. Thou shalt drain out thy blood that is thy life intothe golden cup of her fornication.
3. Thou shalt mingle thy life with the universal life.Thou shalt keep not back one drop.
4. Then shall thy brain be dumb, and thy heart beat nomore, and all thy life shall go from thee; and thou shalt be cast out uponthe midden, and the birds of the air shall feast upon thy flesh, and thybones shall whiten in the sun.
5. Then shall the winds gather themselves together, andbear thee up as it were a little heap of dust in a sheet that hath fourcorners, and they shall give it unto the guardians of the abyss.
6. And because there is no life therein, the guardiansof the abyss shall bid the angels of the winds pass by. And the angelsshall lay thy dust in the City of the Pyramids, and the name thereof shallbe no more.
7. Now therefore that thou mayest achieve this ritualof the Holy Graal, do thou divest thyself of all thy goods.
8. Thou hast wealth; give it unto them that have needthereof, yet no desire toward it.
9. Thou hast health; slay thyself in the fervour of thineabandonment unto Our Lady. Let thy flesh hang loose upon thy bones, andthine eyes glare with thy quenchless lust unto the Infinite, with thy passionfor the Unknown, for Her that is beyond Knowledge the accursed one.
10. Thou hast love; tear thy mother from thine heart,and spit in the face of thy father. Let thy foot trample the belly of thywife, and let the babe at her breast be the prey of dogs and vultures.
11. For if thou dost not this with thy will, then shallWe do this despite thy will. So that thou attain to the Sacrament of theGraal in the Chapel of Abominations.
12. And behold! if by stealth thou keep unto thyselfone thought of thine, then shalt thou be cast out into the abyss for ever;and thou shalt be the lonely one, the eater of dung, the afflicted in theDay of Be-with-Us.
13. Yea! verily this is the Truth, this is the Truth,this is the Truth. Unto thee shall be granted joy and health and wealthand wisdom when thou art no longer thou.
14. Then shall every gain be a new sacrament, and itshall not defile thee; thou shalt revel with the wanton in the market-place,and the virgins shall fling roses upon thee, and the merchants bend theirknees and bring thee gold and spices. Also young boys shall pour wonderfulwines for thee, and the singers and the dancers shall sing and dance forthee.
15. Yet shalt thou not be therein, for thou shalt beforgotten, dust lost in dust.
16. Nor shall the (ss)aon itself avail thee in this;for from the dust shall a white ash be prepared by Hermes the Invisible.
17. And this is the wrath of God, that these things shouldbe thus.
18. And this is the grace of God, that these things shouldbe thus.
19. Wherefore I charge you that ye come unto me in theBeginning; for if ye take but one step in this Path, ye must arrive inevitablyat the end thereof.
20. This Path is beyond Life and Death; it is also beyondLove; but that ye know not, for ye know not Love.
21. And the end thereof is known not even unto Our Ladyor to the Beast whereon She rideth; nor unto the Virgin her daughter norunto Chaos her lawful Lord; but unto the Crowned Child is it known? Itis not known if it be known.
22. Therefore unto Hadit and unto Nuit be the glory inthe End and the Beginning; yea, in the End and the Beginning.
