PART I: THE ANALYSIS OF THE KEYWORD "INRI."

VERSION: [CLASSIC - HERMETIC]:

Step 1: Stand before the Cubical Altar.

Stand behind the altar with your arms out to the sides so that your body forms a cross. You should be facing East. If you have a ritual wand, you should use it in this ritual. If should be held in the right hand with it's point up.

Step 2: State the Keyword for analysis:

"The analysis of the keyword, 'INRI'".

Say meaningfully:

"I, N, R, I"
"Yud, Nun, Raish, Yud"
"The Sign of Osiris Slain."

As you say the letter is Hebrew (the second line of the above verbalization), draw them from right to left, in front of you. Use the tip of your wand or index finger. The letters are formed from top to bottom. As you draw them, visualize them in bright blue flames. They look like this:

(Abjuration - With Concealment). D.M. Kraig. Modern Magick. Pgs. 190-197. F.I. Regardie. The Golden Dawn. Vol. 3, Book 4. Pgs. 46-50. PART I: PREPARATIONS. Step 1: Relaxation Ritual. Prepare yourself by doing the Relaxation Ritual. Step 2: LBRP (Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentegram). If it is appropriate, do the LBRP (Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentegram). Step 3: Use of Stick Incense. Your ³tool² for this ritual is a lit stick of incense. Any scent you like will do. Within the OAB, we traditionally use, ³Rose² for this rite. PART II: FORMATION OF THE ROSE-CROSS(ES). Step 1: South East. Go to the SouthEast (SE) corner of your area and look away from the center of your circle. Make a large cross and circle. Begin by drawing the verticle bar of the cross from top to bottom. Then draw the horizontal bar of the cross from left to right. Next, draw a circle beginning at the horizontal bar at the right. Draw from right to left, until you complete the circle.  As you for the circle (i.e. the rose), vibrate the God Name, ³Yeh-Heh-Shu-Ah.² You should finish the syllable ³Shu² as you finish the circle. On the syllable ³ah² you should ³stab² the center of the circle with the lit tip of the incense stick, at the point where the arms of the symbol of the cross intersect, and feel the energy going out and charging the symbol. Step 2: South West. Point the incense stick to the center of the cross. Keeping the lit point of the incense on that level, move to the SouthWest (SW). The travel of motion should be deocil (clockwise) and should be in the form of a square and not of a circle. Make the Cross and Rose as before, and stab the center. As before, vibrate, ³Yeh-Heh-Shu-Ah.² Step 3: North West. Point the incense stick to the center of the cross. Keeping the lit point of the incense on that level, move to the NorthWest (NW). The travel of motion should be deocil (clockwise) and should be in the form of a square and not of a circle. Make the Cross and Rose as before, and stab the center. As before, vibrate, ³Yeh-Heh-Shu-Ah.² Step 4: North East. Point the incense stick to the center of the cross. Keeping the lit point of the incense on that level, move to the NorthWest (NW). The travel of motion should be deocil (clockwise) and should be in the form of a square and not of a circle. Make the Cross and Rose as before, and stab the center. As before, vibrate, ³Yeh-Heh-Shu-Ah.² Step 5: Return to the South East. In a similar manner, move to the SouthEast (SE), completing the circuit or ³square². Do NOT reform the Rose Cross symbol or vibrate the God Name. At your return to the SouthEast, point (stab) the incense stick to the center of the cross. Step 6: South East to North West - Above, Center. Again, from pointing the center of the cross in the SouthEast (SE), turn to face the direction diagonally across the room, the NorthWest (NW). Now bring your incense stick high into the air and walk toward the NorthWest (NW). In the center of the room (or space), stop and make the Rose Cross above your head. Vibrate the God Name as before, ³Yeh-Heh-Shu-Ah.² Point to the Center of the symbol, and with the incense still high in the air, move to the NorthWest (NW) corner. Bring the top of the the incense stick to the intersecting arms of the cross which you have already created in this corner. Do NOT refortm the Rose Cross symbol or vibrate the God Name here. Step 7: Return North West to South East - Below, Center. Again, from pointing the center of the cross in the NorthWest (NW), turn to face the direction diagonally across the room, the SouthEast (SE). Now, move back to the SouthEast, but with the incense held at armıs length pointing down toward the ground. In the center of the room (or space), stop and make the Rose Cross below you, pointing to the ground. Vibrate the God Name as before, ³Yeh-Heh-Shu-Ah.² Point to the Center of the symbol, and with the incense still low to the ground, move to the SouthEast (SE) corner. Bring the top of the incense stick to the intersecting arms of the cross which you have already created in this corner. Do NOT reform the Rose Cross symbol or vibrate the God Name here. Step 8: Go to the South West. Point to the center of the SouthEast (SE) cross, then walk in a clockwise direction to the SouthWest (SW) corner. Do not redraw the Rose and Cross, but as you point to the center of the Cross, DO revibrate the God Name, ³Yeh-Heh-Shu-Ah.² Step 9: South West to North East - Above, Center. Again, from pointing the center of the cross in the SouthWest (SW), turn to face the direction diagonally across the room, the NorthEast (NE). Now bring your incense stick high into the air and walk toward the NorthEast (NE). Stop in the center of the room (or space). Do NOT reform the Rose Cross symbol above you, however point (stab) the incense stick in the center of the intersecting cross previously drawn. DO vibrate the God Name, ³Yeh-Heh-Shu-Ah.² Point to the Center of the symbol, and with the incense still high in the air, move to the NorthEast (NE) corner. Bring the top of the the incense stick to the intersecting arms of the cross which you have already created in this corner. Do NOT reform the Rose Cross symbol or vibrate the God Name here. Step 9: North East to South West - Below, Center. Again, from pointing the center of the cross in the NorthEast (NE), turn to face the direction diagonally across the room, the SouthWest (SW). Now, move back to the SouthEast, but with the incense held at armıs length pointing down toward the ground. In the center of the room (or space), stop and point to the Rose Cross symbol previously drawn below you, pointing to the ground. Do NOT redraw the Rose Cross symbol, but DO vibrate the God Name as before, ³Yeh-Heh-Shu-Ah.² Point to the Center of the symbol, and with the incense still low to the ground, move to the SouthWest (SW) corner. Bring the top of the incense stick to the intersecting arms of the cross which you have already created in this corner. Do NOT reform the Rose Cross symbol but DO vibrate the God Name as before, ³Yeh-Heh-Shu-Ah.² Step 10: Final Circuit - Reform the Square. Point to the center of the cross here in the South West. Keeping the incense stick on this level, go in a clockwise direction around the square, pointing to the center of each Rose Cross symbol where the cross bars intersect. Go from the South West (SW) to the North West (NW); Then from the North West (NW) to the North East (NE); Then from the North East (NE) to the South East (SE) At this point you should be back to the first Rose Cross that you formed. Step 11: Return to South East - Reform First Rose Cross. When you return to the SouthEast (SE) rest the point of the incense stick for amoment at the center of the cross. Then, remake the cross, only do it in a larger size. Draw the figure as large as you can make it, using your own body as a guide. Make the circle bigger as well, and try to maintain the same proportion with the cross. As you slowly for the ottom half of the circle (Rose), vibrate the God Name, ³Yeh-Heh-Shu-Ah.² As you form the top half of hte circle (Rose), vibrate the God Name, ³Yeh-Hoh-Vah-Shu-Ah.² Step 12: Go to Center of Space - Behind Double Cube Altar. Now go to the cente of your area, face East, and visualize the six Rose Crosses around, abouve, and below you. The crosses should be golden in color, with the circles (Roses) should be bright red. All Rose Cross symbols should be connected by a brilliant bright white lines of light. Thus, you should have a protective ³cube² all around you. Step 13: Meditation/Reflection. While in the confines of the Rose Cross, it is traditional to engage in some form of reflection and/or meditation. The Christian version of th Analysis of the Keyword, ³INRI² from the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Hexagram (LBRH) may be used. This completes the RCR (Rose Cross Ritual).

This completes the LBRH (Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Hexagram).
