A Feast of Nuit

by Tau Aleph

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

Let the priestess and priest be equipped with the following: one cup, two candles, fragrant oil, bottle of wine, round loaf of bread, meat, and other foods at will.

After banishing, let the priest fill and raise the cup, saying:

O Nuit, continuous one of Heaven, let it be ever thus; that men speak not of Thee as One, but as None; and let them not speak of thee at all, since thou art continuous!

After annointing the candles with oil, let the priestess light them, saying:

None, breathed the light, faint & faery, of the stars, and two.

Taking the bread, let the priestess divide it, saying:

For I am divided for love’s sake, for the chance of union.

Let both say, feeding each other pieces of pain, each taking a sip of wine:

This is the creation of the world, that the pain of division is as nothing, and the joy of dissolution all.

Let them set aside a portion of meat as an offering to Ra-Hoor-Khuit, and sprinkling it with wine say:

Trample down the Heathen; be upon them, o warrior, I will give you of their flesh to eat!

Let them both say:

This shall regenerate the world, the little world my sister, my heart & my tongue, unto whom I send this kiss.

A kiss, then a feast, following which the Book of the Law may be read. The meat offering should be set outside in a clean, secluded place.

Aum Ha!

Love is the law, love under will.

Notes

The inspiration for this rite comes from both the Jewish Shabbat and from the Tibetan Buddhist Tsog (Tantrik feast). It is intended to be performed weekly on Friday at twilight (like Shabbat), or on the tenth and twenty-fifth day of the lunar cycle (like the Tsog), or on Thelemic Holy Days, especially on the first day of the writing of The Book of the Law.
