Dr. Doreal, who has a connection with the
Great White Lodge, which
also works through the Pyramid Priest-hood, was instructed to
recover and return to the Great Pyramid, these Ancient Tablets.
This was accomplished, but before returning them, Doreal was
given permission to translate and retain a copy of the wisdom
engraved on the Tablets.
This was done in 1925, and now, permission
has been given for this translation by Doreal to be published
solely through the
Brotherhood of the
White Temple. This is the only authorized, original and true
rendition of these Emerald Tablets. It is expected that many will
scoff, yet the true student will read between the lines and gain
wisdom. If the light is in you, the light which is engraved in the
Tablets will respond.
THOTH, THE ATLANTEAN
When Thoth, the Atlantean and Master raised the
to a great civilization, and when the time came for him to leave
Egypt, he erected The Great Pyramid over the entrance of the Great Halls of Amenti. In the Pyramid, he posited his
records and appointed Guards for his secrets from among the highest
of his people.
In later times, the descendants of these guards became the Pyramid Priests, while
Thoth was deified as the God
of Wisdom, the Recorder, by those in the age of darkness which
followed his passing. In legend, the Halls of Amenti became the
underworld, the Halls of the Gods, where the soul
passed after death for judgment.
During later ages, the ego of Thoth passed into the bodies of
men in the manner described in The Emerald Tablets, a
Book of Record and Occult Wisdom which
he wrote and left in the Pyramid for those of a future
Age of Light.
His writings consist of twelve Tablets of Emerald Green
formed from a substance created through alchemical transmutation.
They are imperishable, resistant to all elements, corrosion and
acids. In effect, the atomic and cellular structure is fixed, and no
change can take place, thus violating the material law of
Upon them are engraved characters in the Ancient Atlantean
language; characters which respond to the attuned thought
waves of the reader and which release much more wisdom and
information than the characters do when merely deciphered. The
Tablets are fastened together with hoops of a golden colored alloy
suspended from a rod of the same material.
Dr. Doreal has translated this Work, and has published
through the Brotherhood of the White Temple, a
translation of ten of these twelve Tablets. He has divided the
ten into thirteen parts for the sake of convenience. The last
two Tablets are found in the "Interpretation of The Emerald
Tablets", also by Dr. Doreal.
In The Emerald Tablets are found secrets which will
prove of inestimable value to the serious student. The following is
an excerpt taken from this work:
"A Long time ago I, in
my childhood, lay neath the stars on long buried Atlantis, dreaming
of mysteries far above men. Then in my heart, grew there a great
longing to conquer the pathway that led to the Stars. Year after
year I sought after wisdom, seeking new knowledge, following the
way, until at last my soul, in great travail, broke from its bondage
of earth-man. Free from the body, I flashed through the night.
Unlocked at last for me was the star-space; free was I from the
bondage of night. Now to the end of space sought I wisdom, far
beyond knowledge of finite man".
Originally published in
mimeographed form in the 1930s by a mysterious "Dr. Doreal,"
these writings quickly became an underground sensation among
esotoricists of the time. Tablets 1-13 are part of the original
work; tablets 14 and 15 are supplemental.
No one has ever seen the
original tablets mentioned here, and in all likelihood, these
writings would be considered channeled material today.
However, the Emerald Tablets of Thoth the Atlantean are still part of
Corpus Hermeticum, for they elaborate and deepen the
meaning of the historical Emerald Tablet and writings of
