Tonight on Walpurgisnacht, as we all dwell despite the hour on the most material manifestations of what is at the bottom an occult war, it seemed to be timely to make this recording which I have been contemplating for some time, of the framework of the daily dedication I do now. In truth, I make it a point not to do it daily, but to do it only when I feel it is appropriate – for reasons having to do with what I now perceive as the real nature of magic and ritual.
I say the “framework”, because the heart of it – the part that is indeed done daily almost without fail – is a silent prayer, which I will keep to myself for various reasons mostly having to do with the efficacy and personal nature of the formula. You can fit your own into the silent space between Vaishnava slokas.
The ritual is built of the Gayatri (Savitri) mantra, some Vaishnava slokas, all in Sanskrit, followed by verses 138 and 139 of the Havamal in Old Norse, and that followed by some closing lines from the Nine Doors of Midgard.
Please forgive the amateur video; it’s the only way I have to get this done at present. Please take this as an encouragement to do your own magic. I could have done it better, and have done it worse.
I do expect the altar arrangement to change in the next few months, as I am contemplating an Irminsul.
