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.
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
In the following pages, I will reveal some of the mysteries which as
yet have only been touched upon lightly either by myself or other
teachers or students of truth.
Man’s search for understanding of the laws which regulate his life has
been unending, yet always just beyond the veil which shields the
higher planes from material man’s vision the truth has existed,
ready to be assimilated by those who enlarge their vision by turning
inward, not outward, in their search.
In the silence of material senses lies the key to the unveiling of
wisdom. He who talks does not know; he who knows does not talk. The
highest knowledge is unutterable, for it exists as an entity in
lanes which transcend all material words or symbols.
All symbols are but keys to doors leading to truths, and many times
the door is not opened because the key seems so great that the
things which are beyond it are not visible. If we can understand
that all keys, all material symbols are manifestations, are but
extensions of a great law and truth, we will begin to develop the
vision which will enable us to penetrate beyond the veil.
All things in all universes move according to law, and the law which
regulates the movement of the planets is no more immutable than the
law which regulates the material expressions of man.
One of the greatest of all Cosmic Laws is that which is
responsible for the formation of man as a material being. The great
aim of the mystery schools of all ages has been to reveal the
workings of the Law which connect man the material and man the
spiritual. The connecting link between the material man and the
spiritual man is the intellectual man, for the mind partakes of both
the material and immaterial qualities. The aspirant for higher
knowledge must develop the intellectual side of his nature and so
strengthen his will that is able to concentrate all powers of his
being on and in the plane he desires.
The great search for light, life and love only begins on the material
plane. Carried to its ultimate, its final goal is complete oneness
with the universal consciousness. The foundation in the material is
the first step; then comes the higher goal of spiritual attainment.
In the following pages, I will give an interpretation of the
Emerald Tablets and their secret, hidden and esoteric
meanings. Concealed in the words of Thoth are many meanings
that do not appear on the surface. Light of knowledge brought to
bear upon the Tablets will open many new fields for thought.
“Read and be wise” but only if the light of your own
consciousness awakens the deep-seated understanding which is an
inherent quality of the soul.
