The Origins of
Some of the earliest evidence of Ritual Vampirism comes from
Tartaria in Transylvania and stems to
the fifth millennium BC. Remains of a human body were found buried
in a fire pit along with clay tablets upon which were inscribed the
names of the ’Sumerian’
god Enki and the ranking number of Father Anu. The
language was subsequently termed ’proto-Sumerian’ and represented some of the
earliest written artifacts yet to be found.
The descendants of these early vampires were the Sacred Ubaid Race
who, one millennium later, settled Mesopotamia and founded
Anunnaki religion of the Sumerians in 3500 BC. Their
ancestors were the Anunnaki Gods themselves.
Various suggestions have been proposed in an attempt to explain the
origin and meaning of the word vampire. One recent
suggestion was that it was applied to a group of ’Watchers’ (Seers - Derkesthai:
Dragons) who had occupied a settlement near "lake Van", in
Armenia. The original location - Greater Scythia - is faultless, the
association is without error but the etymology is unresearched and
the philology is completely absent.
Although that author’s suggested identification between Watchers and
Vampires is absolutely correct, the word vampire does not in any
sense relate to their former geographical location or origin but, as
we shall see, rather to the vampires’ social and spiritual identity
and status within a given cultural framework, which in this instance
was Scythian, overlaid on Celtic.
In the journals of the 17th century cleric, the Abbé Calmet, the
word vampire is transliterated into its most common, and its
earlier, central European form which is spelt either oupire or
oupere. These spellings are common in literature of Calmet’s time
and represent the original form of the word vampire.
When the word migrated into Latin from Anatolian the
u became a v
because, as we will recall, there is no u character represented in
the Latin alphabet. If there had been, then the Latinized western
European construction of the word would have been uampire. By now
bells should be ringing in the readers’ heads as they remember
hearing about wampires somewhere or another, perhaps in a humorous
The Romans didn’t have a w and this letter appeared in
Latin during the medieval period as v v, as presented in the
ridiculous phrase mortvvs svm. The vv being used then as a
vowel sound to differentiate between u and v sounds which were both
represented by the Latin v.
So to recap, let’s have a look at the linguistic migration so far:
oupere - oupire - owpire - ovpire. At this point we must remember
that the word migrated from one language into another at a time when
the most commonly used form of transmission was oral. This was bound
to lead to confusion when the word was written down for the first
time, as it has in numerous other instances.
By now we should be asking "If the word vampire was originally spelt
oupire, where on earth did the ’m’ come from?" All the author can
say is thank heavens for the anomalous ’m’ because it is this
component that really confirms the origin and meaning of the word
vampire, according to currently accepted scholarship.
Philologists would agree that the word vampire, as
oupere, in its
present form originated from the Turkish word uber, which means
’witch’. This would appear to present even more problems because in
addition to an anomalous ’m’, we now also have a ’b’ to explain
away! Nevertheless the author promises you that tenacity and
perseverance will bring its own rewards, so be patient and do try
and keep up.
Leaving the ’m’ aside for a moment, there would seem to be a serious
linguistic problem in that oupere is spelt with a ’p’ and
spelt with a ’b’, which the reader might suspect would undermine the
connection between both words. Especially as vampire or
European and uber is Turkish and thus from a separate language
group. However, this is not so.
As the Turkic-Uralic language is very different from Indo-European,
it would appear that the word vampire in its original form is not
Indo-European, but an Asiatic word that has changed in spelling and
pronunciation during the passage of time and its migration
It might then appear that the central Asian word for a witch -
- would mean something entirely different to the European meaning of
the word ’witch’ and would therefore bring with it an entirely
different set of cultural and mythic associations. However, what the
reader might not realize is that modern Turkey and its language is,
like any other, an evolutionary compilation of historical,
linguistic and cultural influences.
Prior to being named Turkey, Asia Minor or
Anatolia was the centre
of the eastern Roman Empire of Byzantium. At the heart of Asia
Minor, contemporary with Rome but originating from an earlier period
still, was the vast region of Galatia at the heart of which was a
region occupied in the Persian era by the Cimmerians of Scythia, at
a time when Galilee, Gilead and Gaulatinis
in northern Israel were
Scythian territories named after their language.
Galatia spread northwards it bordered upon Phrygia and
reached out further still to become Galati as it crossed the
Bosphorus and encompassed Transylvania. On its westward marches
Galati assimilated both Bulgaria and
In consequence of this, a massive proportion of what is now called
Turkey was in fact, along with most of Europe, a
Gaelic or properly
a Goidelic speaking, Scythian/Celtic civilization, comprising of
independent tribal groups who spoke a number of Gaelic dialects,
amongst which and most notably are what we now know as the so called
’P’ and ’Q’ or ’K’ Goidelic language variants.
The P and Q variants in Brythonic-Cymric (Welsh) and
(Irish Scots), as an example, mean that the word ’son’ will be spelt
map in Cymric and mac in Scotic. Furthermore there is a sub variant
in this language group where ’P’ and ’B’ sounds also become
interchangeable, as in the Welsh pen as in the mountain - Penllithrig’y’wrach - meaning "the
slippery hill of the witch" in Snowdonia, and the Scots
ben as in Ben Nevis in Scotland - both of
which mean ’head’ or ’peak’. The
Cymric language was originally Cimmerian or northern Scythian, whilst
Scotic is a southern Scythian
The Galatian word uber is from the Scythian goidelic group whilst in
Russia and Poland, which was influenced by the Cimmerian or
Brythonic group, the same word for vampire is spelt
upyr and upior
respectively. There have been numerous Scythian migrations over the
millennia and the Gaelic language has been carried across the
Eurasian continent to influence the languages of many peoples. The
Trojans who lived next door to the Galatians and were themselves
Scythians moved to Italy and became the Latines.
As we can see by this example, the b has consistently become a v and
this is how we know that the word for a vampire uber,
is not a
Turkish word at all but Gaelic or Galatian. Remember the anomalous
’m’ in vampire? Well it just so happens that in
dialectic Gaelic the
consonant group Mh is pronounced V. The
’h’ became discarded over
time and left the ’m’ in vampire where the ’u’ or
’v’ should be. If
spelt literally vampire would be uavber, uauber or
uaupir, which is
the central European oupire or oupere.
These variants stem from the Sanskrit upari (Up-Ari or
meaning Over-Lord) for which the Greek is
uper - uper - which, as we
have already seen, is a component of super in Latin. Over (ME -
ouere) began as a graphic variant of uuere which translates into the
dynastic name Vere with the Latin V being interchangeable with the
double U or hard Germanic W which became
V - rendering Ver or Were.
This is pronounced as a soft F, which we find in the
Norse Yfari and
the old English Uffara or Yffera.
The Turkish, or properly Galatian word Uber, meaning
therefore linguistically corresponds to the foregoing variations
found in Gothic, German, Dutch, Norse English, Greek, Latin
and Sanskrit, where finally, as Upari, we discover that originally
- Vampire - meant Overlord. In the following paragraphs we shall
investigate the cultural background behind the word ’witch’ as
and discover that what holds true linguistically is supported by
cultural and social evidence.
Contextually, when applied to an individual as a ’witch’, the word
uber would suggest that the person referred to was in some way
’over’ or ’above’ others, as in the German
ubermensch or uberherren.
The Germanic languages, as with the others sampled here, are all
Indo-European and the Sanskrit in particular, being of
Scythian origin is closest to the Galatian, and we shall see that
the argument for overlordship is exactly the case.
From a cultural standpoint, we read the word ’witch’ and with it
comes a large trolley of baggage that we have inherited from the
popularly reinforced understanding of the word, influenced heavily
by fairy stories and biased histories told from a protagonistic
point of view. Today the specifically Saxon word ’witch’ tends to
conjure up images of old hags prancing about on dark, spooky moors
and cackling into cauldrons.
Witch is derived from the Saxon root word
wicce (feminine) or wicca
(masculine) and the Saxons used it to describe a class of persons
whom they thought were inhabited by an intelligence or spirit - a
daemon or genii - usually evil, because the
Saxons took up catholicism pretty early on in their careers and were consequently
Conversely, some people today would like us to believe, however,
that ’witch’ meant a "wise one" and say that
witchcraft, or in Saxon
- wiccecraeft as they like to call it - means craft of the wise,
failing completely to realize that the word wise in Saxon is
not wicca or wicce.
Wicca is actually related to both ’wicker’ and
’Viking’ or Wiking as
the Norse would pronounce it. In Russia the word Vikhr meaning
whirlwind, is a title of the Zmei Dragons, sons and daughters of
Zmei-Tiamat. This confirms that the link between Sumaire, Zmei
or Zumei and Sumeria was also known in
Russia, once a Viking province.
It also demonstrates that the Danish Vikings, witch lords, were
of the Dragon and the Scandinavian Tuadha d’Anu. In
Ireland the Zmei
Lord or Vikhr is known as the Dark King -
the Whirlwind, meaning he
was sumaire or vampire and via Uber, a
Witch Lord or Wicca. As the
Willow (wicker) bends and yields to the whirlwind so the
yields to the Sumaire, the ancient vampire legacy within him or her,
a legacy that is awoken during the Mass of the Phoenix, when the
primordial ancestors rise from the dead to take possession of the
Wicca, derived from the same Saxon word as Willow, means to "bend or
yield" ones spirit to that of a daemon (Greek, meaning
intelligence or inspiration), giving the christian idea of
possession, though erroneously. The witch was indeed possessed by a
daemon and that daemon was certainly praeter-human and
not of this
Any spirit, including the archangels, conjured by the
magician (the distinction, like that between pagan and christian, is
fallacious), as in ceremonial magic, was actually the ancestor
(antecessor) of the witch her or himself. It was a denizen of the
ancient dragon itself - but it was carried in the witch’s blood
which, the purer it was through unbroken descent from the Dragons,
the stronger would be the return of the ancestors within. The
Stronger the blood the stronger the invocation and the more complete
the possession. With Mixed blood there was weak inspiration and
little discernible presence. "The Blood is the Life".
The witch was possessed by this daemon, because the witch by descent
and heredity was that daemon itself. It was his or her genetic
inheritance and part of his or her racial consciousness, and to that
the witch would yield, when occasion necessitated, placing the witch
and the words wicce or wicca firmly in the tradition of the trance
seer (derkesthai), a practice rooted in Scythian shamanic culture.
This is confirmed in the word genius, meaning inborn intellect or
inspiration. Closely related to this word is genie, meaning a
spirit, as in genius loci - ’a spirit of place’. In Arabic the jinni
is a spirit of fire or inspiration. The Latin genius, in Greek, is a
daemon or inspiring intelligence and the root Latin
birth, origin and especially blood. The daemon or
genius of the
Dragons was inherited through the blood. Witches
are born, not made
by silly playacting initiation rituals.
A seer in Gaelic was called a Merlin and in the tripartite
Aryan-Scythian caste system which overlaid that of their clients,
the deeply religious Celts, the Merlin was a Druid Prince. Either
side of the Druidic caste were the castes of the warrior aristocrats
and the craftsmen and although they all tended to behave as equals
in this king tribe system, the druids were senior in rank.
Each caste attended to their allotted tasks and the study, teaching
and practice of shamanism and magic were strictly the province of
the Druids and Druidesses, forming part of a vast storehouse of
knowledge and experience in the crafts and sciences, and in
statesmanship and lore.
The Druids were responsible for bringing into being gods for the
Celts to worship and though they themselves were not religious,
scholars agree that Druidism was the "religion" of the
So we can see that although the Celts had their own caste system
with their own burgh kings or chieftains, above them were the
Scythian kings, and above the Scythian kings were the
the Priest Kings who stood above all others, the ultimate Overlords
In the Scandinavian countries the craft or ability to gain wisdom or
power (Sanskrit - Siddhi) by yielding to daemons or
(ancestral god spirits which were part of the practitioners’ own
genetic inheritance and make-up) through trance or dream states was
considered to be shamanic and was called Siddir, whilst those who
practiced this art were themselves called Siddirs. The
knotted together the web of dreams and loosened those knots to
release power and knowledge.
In other words they brought together and spoke or gesticulated a
series of mnemonics that would trigger off precontrived, imprinted
states of consciousness that acted as doorways into deeper seats of
consciousness. In Gaelic Scythian this ability and the name
corresponding to it was called the Sidhe, a term used to describe
and name the Irish fairies, the Tuadha d’Anu or
Tuatha de Danaan as
they were later called, a race of priest kings or druid princes.
The Web of Dreams relates to both the witches’ knotted ball and the
Web of Wyrd or Fate (fata-fairy) and in the
Scythian and Celtic
cosmology, the power associated with it was thought to reside in the
Otherworld, the realm of the gods (druidic ancestors) which was
entered via trance or dream states, achieved whilst the druid or
druidess occupied the fairy hills, the mortuary raths where the
forefathers were buried.
The witch, as a seer or Merlin in Scythian culture and society,
consequently belonged to an exclusive genome within a distinct holy
and royal caste of overlords, which is reflected in the Gaelic word
for a witch - Druidhe - which is pronounced
Drui and is related to
Draoi and Dracoi, meaning a dragon.
Drui itself means Man (or Woman)
of the Tree (not men of the oaks, as some have suggested) and is
also related to the Sanskrit dru, meaning to run. This is associated
with the ritual of running the labyrinth, with which we will deal in
Therefore in Galatia, which had its own druids and was the site of
the Nemeton, the largest regular gathering of druids in Europe, the
term for a witch was Uber meaning Overlord, whilst in the
west the term for a witch was Druidhe which meant the same as
In summary vampire in its earlier form - oupire - derives ultimately
from the Galatian Uber, which itself is derived from the
and linguistically and contextually the Vampire - the
witch or druid
- was a Scythian High Queen or King: an Overlord.
It is interesting to note in this context that when he compiled his
journals in the 17th century Calmet, who had traveled extensively
throughout the Austrian empire as an official vampire investigator
accompanying imperial officers and soldiers, wrote that he had found
no evidence whatsoever to support any notion that vampirism was
either a supernatural phenomenon committed by praeter-natural beings
- which he utterly refutes - or that it ever occurred in any form,
either as a cult or in any isolated incidents, amongst the lower
strata of society.
Without exception the enlightened Abbé was able to discover
perfectly ordinary explanations for the incidents he had
investigated, which in his day was quite remarkable, as the Church
in past times had actively promoted vampire paranoia.
As Professor Margaret Murray discovered herself, vampirism was not
the prerogative of the merchant or peasant classes, but was a cultic
observance confined to the environs of the nobility, often as an
adjunct to rites of the Noble and Royal Witch Covens of Scotland.
We can say with confidence then that real vampirism was indulged in
by living beings who, unerringly, were members of the pre-christian
and anti-christian high nobility and royalty. The most famous
vampire stories, those of Dracula, Bathory and de Rais, support this
conclusion. The historical evidence therefore supports the
etymological origin of the word ’vampire’ - An Overlord.
Vampirism, up until the early 1700’s, by which time it had been in
decline for several centuries, was not merely or solely the practice
of a few isolated, high-born opportunists seeking some form of
personal advantage or satisfying private perversions. Vampirism took
two forms and the bloodline descendants of the ancient vampire lords
had, in Britain, set the practice within an overall, multi-faceted
social and cultural framework, stemming from the Iron-Age, that
never gets an airing in the Gothic novel.
Vampires weren’t just vampires, as the penny dreadful would have us
believe, they were individuals and families who used the practice to
achieve specific aims and thereby fulfill those specific social
obligations which, since the Scythian-Celtic period of the
Dragon Kings, were equated with their rank and position as leaders
Throughout this discourse it must be borne in mind that when we
speak of the Scythians as ’fairies’, ’dragons’,
’elves’, we are not talking about either the client races of the
Scythians, or the ordinary Scythian citizenry, but of ’Royal
As we have discovered, the vampire - as a "witch" -
genetic inheritance, to a distinct royal caste in Scythian-Celtic
society, that of the priest-king or priestess-queen, the prince and
princess-druids who had evolved very early on in human social
history and who belonged to a Eurasian-wide hereditary priestly
community which had originated with the Scythian-Aryans. The name
Scythian was originally spelt Sithian in 16th century England, and
it is from this tribal name that we obtain the word scythe, denoting
a curved bladed agricultural tool, so named because of its
similarity in shape to the Scythian sword.
The Scythians weren’t however named after their use of a curved
sword. The name Sithian is related to a group of words that appear
in Indo-European languages which are found as far apart as Eire and
Northern India, indicating that they had a common
Aryan origin in
Scythia. These include - Sithia, Sidhe, Siddir
In Cymric ’dd’ is pronounced ’th’,
whilst in Irish and Scots the ’th’
is spelt dialectically ’dh’ whilst the ’s’
beginning a word is pronounced ’sh’. As we have related, the
Siddir in Danish society
were witches who practiced the art of knot tying and loosening.
These Siddir were directly related to the mythic Norns, the
Mori or Fates who were said to be responsible for the fate of mankind by the
patterns that they wove in the way that they tied and loosened the
knots of the Web of Wyrd. The Siddirs, as well as being
control such power as to influence the outcome of human affairs and
in this respect their name reflects their abilities which, in India,
were called the Siddhis, a word used to describe the
powers of the
Yogi who had self-realized.
The curious Irish word - Sidhe -
pronounced ’shee’, ’sheeth’ or ’sheeth-ay’,
attributed to the fairies and meaning ’powers’, is therefore
identical to Siddir (sheeth-eer) and Siddhi (sheeth-ee) and is
derived therefore, from the people of the powers - the Scythians or
Sidheans (sheethee-ans). In Scotland the royal fairies were called
the Seelie or Sheelie and their princesses were related to the
sculpted Sheelagh Na Gigs over church doorways, who do NOT depict
ancient goddesses of fertility, but were the royal Grail Maidens of
the Elven kings and queens.
The Sheelagh na Gigs were goddesses of sovereignty and
transcendence, and their place over the doorways of churches, many
of which were built on the sites of ancient sacred groves, indicated
that in entering these buildings one was entering through the vulva
of the maiden into the otherworld, the realm of Elphame and the
Kingdom of Heaven.
They were permitted above church doorways because the early church
itself wanted to be identified with the old ways, firstly because it
was in fact, at least in the beginning, part of the old ways and
later, when catholicism took over, the Sheelaghs remained in place -
in order to attract and convert "pagans".
Along with the Irish Sidhe, the Seelie and the
Seelie Court of
Scotland had a distinctly royal origin in the Tuadha d’Anu who when
asked, like their Pictish descendants in Scotland, said of
themselves that they were Scythian, as Canon Beck himself has
Some people tend to think that the word sidhe means a hill and
therefore that the Irish Danaan, as the Sidhe, inherited this name
as a consequence of fleeing into the hills after their defeat by the
Milesians. As we can see this is not so and the fairy "hills", where
the Aes Dan or Danaan, the gods of the Irish, were said to live,
weren’t all Sidhe hills.
These - the power hills - were the sacred temple-mortuary raths and
barrows, the creachaires or tomb-sepulchers, that the
priest-kings were wont to ritually occupy for millennia before moving
to Eire, and centuries before their Iberian kinsmen, the
came looking for a fight. The Sidhe, the Fairies, were the
’controllers of the fate of mankind’ and so named in remembrance of,
and in identification with, their ancient
In pre-christian history, although some practiced agriculture for a
while, according to Murray-Hall M.A. they abandoned it for their
traditional way of life and many of the Scythian clans remained
solitary and insular nomadic pastoralists - horse lords who ranged
across large tracts of Europe and Asia for centuries. Others opted
late for a more settled existence and mixed settled agriculture with pastorialism, a system that can be found in both
Takla Makan, where
they built fine cities, and in Ireland, where they became know as
the trooping fairies.
In general they were usually tall, pale skinned, with golden red
hair and green eyes, unlike the Celts, who were stocky and squat,
with ruddy complexions and dark hair, and practiced settled
agriculture from a very early period.
The recent and rather unfortunate propagandist depiction of the
Aryan (Scythian) as a tall, ruddy complexioned blonde racist
yeoman-farmer-warrior-god has no basis in truth. In pre-christian
history an Aryan was a High King, a warrior was a warrior and a
farmer was a farmer and ne’er the three e’er met. The real Aryans of
fact were red haired and green eyed, their hired military help,
derived from their lower Ksatriya caste
who were not Aryan were,
sometimes, blonde and blue eyed.
The Aryan royal families didn’t intermarry with other tribes or
castes but, with the development by many of their clans of settled
city-states such as Scythopolis (30 AD, on the banks of the
Jordan just south of Galilee) nevertheless they became urban
multi-racialists and appreciated cultural diversity.
The Aryan Hittites in particular were close allies of
the Jews whose
Draconian royal family, the House of David, made the
a cultural sense, an early Aryan nation, and the Scythians and the
Aryan Scythian Gaels had numerous settlements either in or adjacent
to Israel and Judea.
The comparatively early use of the horse and of horse related
technology separated the Aryans from the other tribes that occupied
the middle-east and Eurasia. In Mittani, Mesopotamia,
Anatolia the Hurrians (whom in the 1920’s
B. Hrozny described as the
earliest Hindus) were the absolute Overlords and their supremacy is
credited to their early use, like the Kurgans, of horse-drawn
The Hur syllable in Hurrian has been asserted by scholars, including
G. Contenau (’La Civilisation des Hittites et des Hurrites de
Mittani’) to be Har or Ar, meaning that the
Hurrians, like the
Scythians were Aryans with an Aryan Vedic royal-sacral family of
These they bestowed upon the Hittites whose culture they dominated,
(as the Hurrian or Aryan Mittani did in
Mesopotamia) and the Hittites, in turn, provided the
Greeks with these red-gold haired
gods, including Zeus or Dyas Pater - the
Jewish Jehovah, whose
ancient symbol, shared with the sacred dynasty as a whole was -
ironically - the swastika.
The early "Scythians", the people of the powers, occupied a region
spanning The Balkans, Transylvania, Carpathia, the
later, Siberia and Takla Makan where the
Tocharians, as the Elves
were mistakenly called by early linguists, spoke a ritual language
which is now called Tocharian A but which originated in
1800 BC and thus had connections with the Fir Bolg and consequently
with the Tuadha d’Anu as a whole, who began migrating from Central
Europe to Ireland at that period.
Over the centuries, from 5000 BC onwards, the Scythians had also
migrated into the middle-east and had provided ruling families for
many tribes and nations along and beyond the eastern Mediterranean
In the ’Annals of Irish History’ the Scythian ’Tuadha d’Anu’ who had
migrated farther still, to the islands of the north, were described
as a tribe of deific queens, kings, princes and lords and were noted
for having druids of their own. In Japan’s North islands there lives
a shamanic tribe called the Ainu whose early writing style has been
identified as being Gaelic Ogham!
As a noble tribe, a sect of the Aryan peoples who, during various
migrations, had also wandered east several centuries before the
d’Anu displacement and their reputed first journey to
1500 BC, the Aryan-Scythian horse lords, traveling south-east via
Persia (Iran) from 1800 BC onwards, had entered the Indus Valley and
intermingled with the Dravidian population.
This migration was to lands already formerly under Sumerian and
consequently Ubaid control. The westward migration of the
or Sidheans also included these very same Dravidians who, so British
traditions state, were the messengers and summoners or ’fetches’ of
These curious and delightful beings were also known as brownies, for
obvious reasons and adopted the habit of body tattooing in emulation
of their Scythian lords, who in Britain and Ireland were known as
the Pixies, which is a name derived from Pict-Sidhes or
The confusion which arises when the Picts are described as being
short and brown may be clarified when we remember that the Scythian
Caste System consisted of three closely interknit, co-operating
races, whose traditions and practices would inevitably become, to a
certain extent, common to all within the system by a natural process
of social osmosis.
From this encounter arose the eastern branch of the Aryan,
"Hindu" religion, with its druids or
magi - the Brahmins - and a
pantheon of gods who were virtually identical with the Sumerian, the
Egyptian, the Hittite, The Irish, the Gaulish, the Danish and the
Greek, all of which stem from this early family of Elven
goddess-queens and god-kings whose first home was to be found in
Balkans, Transylvania, Carpathia and the
Caucasus regions of Greater
and Little Scythia.
Within the Brahmin caste special Tantric rites were and still are
studied and practised. Evidence suggests that these ancient rites
were brought to India from Sumeria. This accords with the assertion
that Qabalah itself originated there also and the author has long
maintained that Tantra, particularly the Kaula Vama Marg and
Esoteric Qabalism are simply variations of each other. The Tree of
Life symbol and its hidden meanings appears in Druidism and given
the evidence to date, we can confidently say that Tantra and
are descended from ancient Ubaid Druidic philosophy.
The right hand path version of Hindu and Buddhist Tantra concerns
itself with studying and practicing sexual rites that one might find
associated with the Kama Sutra. This form of Tantra promotes
penetrative intercourse as a method of changing consciousness and
has attached to it various commentaries on right-living and
right-thinking. This was thought by some Indian scholars to have
originated with those who were depicted by one Indian scholar as the
animistically minded, sex mad weasels, the Dravidians. The
path however is somewhat different.
This discipline can be found in both Hinduism and Buddhism and
concerns itself with the practice of vampirism. This alone is
sufficient evidence to allow one to ascertain that the ’Black’ or
Left Hand or Kaula Path preceded the later
right hand path which,
though joyously tactile and self indulgent to begin with, appears
many centuries later to have been somewhat sanitized for public
consumption. The yogic disciplines associated with the Kaula Path,
originating with the Scythians, are intended to lead the
practitioner to what one might call ’union with godhead’.
This psychological condition is manifest in mystical christianity as
being the perception by the devotee of ’the kingdom of heaven’. That
few christians ever achieve such a state is not to be wondered at,
as christianity is also a royal blood tradition, exactly like its
brother and sister, Druidism and Witchcraft.
Many christians haven’t got a clue about this aspect of Jesus’
teaching and are in any case not encouraged to explore its
possibilities because such union leads to physical and psychological
freedom, the very last thing that the established churches wish to
encourage in the masses, even though Jesus himself preached it.
Union with Godhead, dwelling in Elphame, realization of the
or whatever one likes to call it is accompanied by a range of
powers which were catalogued by the amazing Edwardian lady explorer
Alexandra David Niel, who witnessed the performance of these
remarkable powers or Siddhis by Buddhist monks in Nepal and
whose ritual and philosophy owed much to the indigenous religion
Bon-Po which ethically followed the same path as
Kaula Vama Marg.
In the west we call it magic but, as we have seen, it was also known
as the Sidhe. Kaula Tantra is dedicated to the Goddess Kali who is
associated with both creation and destruction in the Hindu pantheon.
Kali is a lunar deity who, like Tantra itself, moved east from
Sumeria. As a moon goddess she is associated particularly with
blood and the essences of the female organs of generation.
So what can we say of the nascence of Vampirism so far? Principally
that it originated, not surprisingly, in Transylvania and the
Central Eurasian region known as Scythia and that its practitioners
were of a distinct race, the Elves, the high goddess-queens and
god-kings of the Arya or Aesir.
Vampirism was the central feature of a philosophy based on
endocrinology, rather than occult mumbo-jumbo and used the
consumption of female blood and mumae to enhance awareness and lead
the practitioner to union with godhead.
The powers accompanying such an elevated state of consciousness were
called the sidhe or siddhi and were, with
vampirism, the foundation
of the cults of Druidism, Tantric Kaula Yoga, Qabalism, Alchemy,
Rosicrucianism and Witchcraft.
Kali, like all the Ubaid Deities was a flesh and blood being. She,
Kalimaath or Kali Marg, was a daughter of Lilith and
Samael, son of
Anu, who appears in the Aryan pantheon as Ahura Mazda and in
the Medean god Zoroaster. Anu himself was the god who gave his name
to the Tuatha de Danaan and as Sitchin has suggested the definition
of the word god itself is ’descended of Anu’.
Based on the spelling ’Tuatha de Danaan’, some have suggested that
these Irish elven folk derived their name from an Irish mother
goddess named Dana. If they had checked the earlier spelling -
Tuadha d’Anu (Tribe of Anu) - they would have discovered that the
Scythian Sidhe were the sons and daughters of Anu and the
To recap then we have a clear connection between the words siddhi
and sidhe both of which originate from a Scythian or
earlier proto-Aryan-Ubaid root. The Scythians, as the
Aryans of Persia and
Asia provided the people then with their religious and social
structures and mores and spread their wisdom and overlordship,
mostly by invitation from prospective client tribes, throughout
Britain and Europe.
The Scythian Aryans, as the ’Danaan’ settled in
Eire and Scotland
whilst in Wales they were known as the House of Don (Dan) or the
House of Gwynnedd. This house sired the line of Llewelyn Princes,
whilst in Scandinavia the Danaan became the Danes or Vikings and
produced a junior cousin line - the Svei or Swedes - from which
descended the Ruotsi clan who founded Russia. In
Denmark the Sidhe
was present as the Siddir, a class of seer or witch who were later
separated from the Godthi or Gothi, the Danish Druids.
The Scythian Danaan in Eire, as in the rest of Europe, were a race
apart, a ruling caste within which, like the original race of the
Gods from whom they descended, there were further caste
In Denmark these were later named the Jarl,
Carl and Thrall castes
whilst in Eire they were broadly speaking the Druids, the Kings and
the Warrior Smiths. In India they are still defined as the
the Ksatriyas and the Sudras.
The original castes of the Gods were:
a) the common gods - gods of
b) the gods of Heaven and Earth
c) the gods of Heaven
The first class were what we might call jobbing gods who became the
genii locus or pagan spirits. The second class - the
gods of Heaven
and Earth - were the Titans, the Repha’im and
Morrighans, the Angels
and Valkyries who interceded between the transcended gods, the
divine ancestors - the gods of Heaven - and man.
Heaven was the otherworld, not a place up in the stars, but a
of being which was adjacent to our own dimension - called sometimes
the mirror-world, most competently described, more than once, in the
Mabinogion - which could be freely entered and left by the gods of
Heaven and Earth, the Portal Guardians. In this place, also known as
Elphame, Hades, Hel, Caer Glas and Tir Na n’og there dwelt the
essences of the previous gods of Heaven and Earth who had passed on
to become the transcended ones, the ’antecessors’ or ancestors of
the later witches.
By dwelling in tombs the gods of Heaven and Earth, the Danaan
Queens and Kings, made contact with their ancestor Gods and passed their
wisdom and edicts on to mankind. Today we might call this process
These gods are carried in the blood and by invocation, we bring
their qualities and identities to the forefront of conscious being
and give them voice. These druidic gods and goddesses of Heaven and
Earth were effectively the highest overlords on Earth, the elven
rulers of the human kings and queens who ruled beneath them.
Often we find mention of the fairy blood in the medieval era in
connection with the ruling nobility of the time. We might then be
tempted to come to the logical conclusion that all nobility and
royalty was thus of Fairy origin. However this is simply not the
case. Despite the usurpation of the original fairy families by the
church sponsored new nobility, the previous kingly and noble
dynasties were essentially human anyway.
The fairy blood at that time, the dark ages and the medieval period,
was carried by the descendants of the Archdruidic dynasties who
formerly ruled over the contemporary Celtic and Eurasian kings and
lords, it was not carried by any or all of the royal or noble
families of the time simply because they were the heads of their
castes, because over such class distinctions were positioned
additionally, the castes of the elven god-kings themselves.
The gods of Heaven and Earth - the Archdruidic caste - dwelt in
Barrows and Bergs which in Eire were called
Raths, meaning a ’royal
seat’. These Raths were the holy shrines and sepulchres built by the
Danaan - the original Gods of Ireland according to the ’Annals of
Irish History’ - to house the mortal remains of their ancestors and
act as royal palaces for the Portal Guardians. In specific cases
these Gods are named, and we learn, for instance, that Newgrange was
the shrine occupied by Nuadha and later Oengus.
The devotional and holy nature of these places has led some scholars
and commentators to believe that, because they were tombs and
temples, then those said to occupy them must be purely spiritual
entities, gods of an ethereal nature. Originally nothing could have
been farther from the truth. Both Nuadha and Oengus were
the Danaan and contemporary descriptions of them and their kin leave
us with the picture of the Danaan as a race of people with
prodigious and very earthly appetites.
From their kinsmen in Siberia we know that, by our dubious
standards, they were complete junkies and imbibed any form of drug
they could get hold of. These would have included cannabis and
cocaine, prevalent in Egypt and the Levant at the time, as well as
the drugs classically associated with the druids and the
as Amanita Muscaria and Psylocybin, the fairy mushrooms of
children’s picture books everywhere.
The Danaan were hardened drinkers and unscrupulous
whilst accounts of their princesses relate that they often mated in
public with the highest nobles of their clan, to prove or reiterate
their social standing to onlookers. (Heroditus: The Histories).
Counterbalancing this view of them, born of our own hypocritical
conditioning, the Danaan, whether in Eire or mainland
Asia, were the finest smiths, jewellers, poets and musicians of
their time, they were the Lords of fearless warriors and gifted
horsemen and, despite what we might think of the foregoing, they
were a righteous, meticulous people who maintained standards of
conduct in areas of their social life where such standards were
considered essential for the harmonious order of society.
Great emphasis was laid upon honesty and truth in one’s words and
one’s dealings, the maintenance and conservation of the natural
environment was paramount, and infractions, such as the cutting of
trees, could mean death. Emphasis was also laid on hospitality and
courtly behavior to one’s peers or guests, the honoring of one’s
ancestors and heroes, and the maintenance of extended family ties
They weren’t bothered about the petty morality we imbue our sexual
behavior with but would kill a man for breaking his word or lying.
They were an heroic people and, compared with us today, a far more
moral race whose standards of conduct, not invested or centered on
our kind of childish taboos - but placed where it matters - puts us
They were a race centered on their spirituality which itself was
centered on gnosis and transcendent consciousness. This made them,
like their later royal Viking cousins, a fearless people much loved
and also much feared in turns, by all who knew them, whether in
Eurasia or the British islands.
In about 500bc the Milesians entered Ireland from
defeated the Danaan tribes they put many of them to flight. It was
during this period that the Danaan became known as the Daouine Sidhe
- the people of the hills - an erroneous use of the word sidhe.
One group, the tribe of the Danaan king of Ulster, Bruidhne
(mistakenly called Cruithne by the Romans), fled to Caledonia where
they became known as the remnant of Cruithne or the ’Cruithainn’.
Other Danaan clans fled to Wales and the south west of mainland
Britain. Several centuries later, when the Romans were unfortunate
enough to encounter them in Scotland, they referred to these
as ’Picts’ and it is this word that has adapted itself to become one
of the names we use to describe the elven peoples - the
pixies - or
properly the Pict-Sidhes as we have already seen.
These being also came to be known as the Leprachauns and the
etymology of this word, though thought to mean ’small-bodied’
actually means ’scaly-bodied’ from the Latin word lepra as in
leprosy - scaly skinned.
The scaliness referred to was derived from the fish -scale style of armour which was common to the
draconian Dacians, the Zmei, the
Danes and the Danaan, all of whom originated in the region now known
as Greater Scythia.
The scaly, twin-pronged tail of the wouivre or mermaid was also
derived from the use, by grail maidens, of fish-scale plated
leggings. When worn with the swan’s or raven’s feather cloaks, we
have the classical image of the Harpie, reproduced in medieval
depictions of Melusine.
Pict or Pictish means ’painted’ and the
Danaan earned this
appellation by virtue of their use of tattoos or woad to decorate
their bodies with totemic or magical markings, the favorite being
the labyrinth or spiral whorl.
The ancestors of the Irish Danaan - the Ubaid Danaan - had been
using tattoos and woad since 4000 BC and examples of it can also be
found in depictions of the Egyptian god Osiris or
Asher as he is
also known, and in the depictions of the Hindu gods Vishnu and
Kali herself was also known as Kali Azura - the
The spiral or whorl - the labyrinth - is the subject of a later
essay in which it and its painted or carved symbol, lie at the
centre of vampire and elven tradition. The spiral can be found
carved into the rock at Newgrange in Ireland and also featured as a
sacred design associated with the dwellings of the related Kassite
Danaan clans who migrated to Britain.
In the Gaelic language we find two words specifically defining
’vampires’. The first - Creachaire - means a sepulchre, a tomb, a
shrine and a temple, indicating that the character we later become
familiar with as the "vampire" of Gothic legend was in fact a
"dweller in the tombs", a druidic priest-king or priestess-queen -
an Uber or Witch Overlord.
In Eurasia, particularly in the permafrost of Siberia and the arid
wastes of Takla Makan in China, the mummified bodies of
Chieftains and Shamankas or Priestess queens have been found. In
Siberia the frozen remains of a male were unearthed. He had been
tattooed with animal designs reminiscent of the totem Pictish salmon
often found carved on stones in Scotland.
In the same region a shamanka had been unearthed who had been
tattooed with the spiral labyrinth design. She, like her counterpart
in Takla Makan, wore the conical headress of
the Anunnaki gods of Sumeria that is also associated with
medieval witchcraft. This same headress is depicted in bas-relief on the walls of the palace of
Darius as being worn by those Scythians who brought him gifts in
The Takla Makan mummy, excavated by the Chinese in the 1960’s had
red-gold hair and was buried adjacent to a cache of tartan plaid
cloth and spiral painted pottery, similar to that found at Al’Ubaid
in Syria. In the same region caves have been discovered where the
walls are painted with devotional Buddhist pictures featuring the
Tocharians, as they are known, conversing with Buddha.
Geoffrey Ashe states that the western Druids were interviewed by
Buddha who claimed that they, the Druids, had established
in the west. This should give the reader some hint as to the general
thrust of druidic philosophy and of the hidden nature of that
promoted by Jesus, whom St Columbus clearly stated was also a druid
and magus himself.
