Theme: Initiation and the Egyptian Book of the Dead

The ancient Theo-sofia provides insight into the processes of Initiation, where purity of motive and thinking of the initiate is crucial.

To what extent is this insight reflected in the Egyptian Book of the Dead? From the Theo-sofia a picture will be sketched of the four major phases of Initiation and what can be found about them in the Egyptian Book of the Dead.

More specifically what the relationship is between:

  • the Initiation of the Mystic Birth and the weighing of the heart;
  • the Initiations of the Great Temptation and the Great Renunciation and the journey through Amenti;
  • the Initiation of the Great Passing and becoming Osiris.
