The Vampire Viaticum by Zakary

Post by Jonathan on 28.04.12 7:48

I have come across a published document entitled The Vampire Viaticum that was written by Zakary of House Bennu, a member of VVC (Voices of the Vampire Community). A digital version of the full text can be found here.

I am only posting this as they speak about the Aset Ka, so I wanted to leave it here not for debate but for reference in anyone doing research, as the information in this forum is often consulted by scholars, students and other occultists.

In the end, some of the things mentioned seem rather inaccurate, like the titles used in the AK's internal structure, as well as describing Luis Marques as the founder of the Aset Ka which was never purported by the order or himself as stated in the text. They are correct however when they mention that Marques remains a mystery, where given his extensive visibility in the occult world he still remains one of the most private authors on the spotlight. Definitely one of the most interesting personalities of our time in the field of the occult.

Quoting from the book:

A newer group ‘The Kemetic Order of Aset Ka’ has drawn much attention to itself since its internet debut. The word ‘Aset’ is an ancient Egyptian term for the goddess
Isis, the word ‘Ka’ is the ancient Egyptian term for ‘spirit’ or ‘life force’, which we will discuss later in this book.
The Orders teachings are reported to combine the use of ancient Egyptian mythology and texts, with other modern texts such as Crowley’s ‘Book of the Law’. The Order also uses titles and internal structure similar to that of the Church of Satan and Temple of Set such as Adeptus, Magus, Master and Magister.

There have been unsubstantiated links of its founder Luis Marques with the Temple of the Vampyre, Temple of Set and the Church of Satan.

Many internet reviews of the Order’s main text ‘The Asetian Bible’ describe the book in a positive context. However, not unlike the TOV the Order has a highly visible and refined internet presence with little known of its activities beyond the same. The exact identity of the Orders purported founder Luis Marques continues to remain a mystery.

Those are related with the internal structure of other occult orders, but I believe not related with the Aset Ka. No one really knows for sure so take such statements with a grain of salt.

Thanks for posting this Jonathan.

After reading this, I was taken with the overall impression of finding little that would stand out as something that would NOT be associated or attached to an "ordinary human being". Just about everything mentioned here can be taught or become a natural function of just about any person that would HAVE AN INTEREST in becoming involved with this type of activity. The only minor exception would be a disease associated with exposure to the sunlight in excess.

Maybe I am being too critical here but from the beginning I asked myself the question why would the individual be putting this to paper? ( I now do this with every book I read). Drawing attention to self.....drawing attention to the House of whatever he called the group.......? It is not something that is a money maker as it was a free download....!!!!.

So I had to draw a conclusion that it was designed to be an attention grabber.... Since MB was mentioned there in the manner of gratitude at the end, it appears there is more than just a slight connection. So, I will take it as good entertainment and a quick read to pass the time.

PS. I will go back to being just a normal human being enjoying life and blending into the shadows with the shades pulled ...... at night.

"The Cruor Vs role or place in the human genus can perhaps be simply viewed as a natural energy balancer, rather than a predator or opportunistic entity. By facilitating the exchange and transference of psychic energy the Cruor V may also be viewed as nature's psychic flame or beautiful flower to the highly psychically active moths or bees of the world."

I did relate with this statement a great deal....as my present studies within the Rosicrucians are dealing with the "spirit" or "Energy" or vibration of spirit that is found in everything whether animate or inanimate. It is the reason why we are all different in some respects. Has to do with light, sound, etc. This is further proof for me of the Law of Nature in EVERYTHING. It even extends into the astral.



Thanks again, Jonathan, for posting.

The motivation behind the Viaticum was to stimulate thought..... Somewhat of a waste of time in the greater Vcom as it is full of pretentious individuals who are certainly not plagued by ideas... especially not new ones anyway....lol!
The book would be very boring to those who are acclimatized to 'mystery' and 'mysterious individuals' who remain faceless and nothing more than a myth..... Well...... this is not the case with the Viaticum anyway, nor myself. I have a face and am easily contactable..... no mysteries or super special occult activity. I frequent places like the 600 club from time to time, engage in dialogue there.... Dr Aquino is very interesting to listen to I must say. Otherwise I keep to myself mostly, stay in my own House, sometimes popping into the VVC... and VCN on facebook....
Any questions you have about the Vampire Viaticum or House Bennu just ask.........

Greetings,
Thanks for you post.

In fact, we don't have questions about Vampire Viacticum or House Bennu. On the other hand, we appreciate your commitment to be available to clarify any matter.

Appreciate your posting here. I expected you, really.

I agree that the Dr. has some interesting posts as I have viewed the conversations on the 600 club. I was impressed with his answers to those that were flaming him. He appears to be a rational person and he has a very impressive mind.

Might you care to introduce yourself in that topic area to give everyone some information about yourself as all are asked to do on arrival here. From that, there may be some that would like to ask some questions. Maybe even about your book. You are welcome here.

Hello Zakary.
As I believe was clear, my intention with this thread was to share the contents of that book in what might be of interest to the community in here. Many people look up to this site for information so we reference a lot of material, it's common practice really.
When I mentioned the inaccuracy of the quoted text I didn't mean any sort of insult or attack. Just that, its inaccuracy. I agree with you though, most people in the vampire community aren't certainly plagued by ideas or interested in stimulating thought. Smile

Welcome here.

I can't help but smile when situations like this arise.

There is a small although vocal sect of the online community interested in vampirism that likes to promote the false idea that the Aset Ka and their teachings are not important to the vampire community and should be avoided, sometimes even portrayed as dangerous knowledge, and that places such as this forum are biased and not relevant in the vampire world, despite being one of the largest if not the largest online community related with vampirism. Then, every time a name, a virtual document or a reference is published here, in a matter of only a few days or hours the author, friend, fiancé, waitress, taxi driver or whatever related with the original individual or work joins this forum. It's hilarious as it has happened more than once. This community is that sort of taboo place that many like to state in public not knowing about or following, when in reality everyone talks about it, everyone reads it and everyone values its contents. Oh boy and I do know some stories... Twisted Evil

Concerning what was mentioned in this thread, I would say that this community is far from being acclimatized to mystery, as it's one of the few that actually discusses things keeping a down to earth approach and staying away from role-play, video games and fiction. Surely we may not always agree, which alone is a great indicator on the value of our discussions, but we are very serious about the occult and vampirism in such a way that has made this place stand out precisely for this approach.

Maybe some don't understand that vampirism is not about FaceBook. Still, it's a nice cloak for the real vampires out there. Wink

I wish to know more about this person...if others do not that is on them.
I find it an odd coincidence that a post regarding this person is placed on the VF and immediately they respond. This person could be anyone.

The "odd coincidence" is that most people in the online vampire community read this forum regularly, even the ones that say they don't and the ones that criticize it.

To be honest, I doubt this. I have come across other members and houses etc. from the OVC and VC and only a very small number know about the Aset Ka and almost none know about this forum. I am eager to know what zakary has to say about how he came across the forum and if he knows others who read it. Perhaps I'm mistaken but I find it odd that all of these 'readers' wouldn't post/bash the things they don't agree with. Its interesting to see one here...let's see what he has to say.

My point is...that I feel certain things are being exaggerated. where are all these scholars that read this forum? How can we trust that some guy (no offense) by the name of zakary is truly who he says he is? All I'm saying is that we can't trust everything at face value.

Zakary is a regular on VVC sites and the OVC. He said nothing wrong or suspicious, so I have no reason to doubt him. He just acted somewhat defensive as many people do when they first post around here, nothing bad in my opinion. Why don't you approach Zakary directly in another forum and make sure this is the real one if you're suddenly feeling so suspicious about it?

I'm not sure what members and houses from the OVC you have come across but I rather doubt your "findings" in this case. It's a verifiable fact that the Aset Ka is well known and regularly discussed in many places outside of this forum. Even the other sites that discuss vampirism and don't agree with everything about the Asetian tradition have featured references to the Aset Ka for several times, usually creating a lot of hassle around it. An old post about the Aset Ka on the VVC facebook was one of the most commented in their blog. There was a full post dedicated to the Aset Ka and Asetian vampires posted on Vampires.com several months ago, which is one of the top hits on Google, a post that got as much heat in the comments that the administrators had to block the comments form. If what you say would be true and only a small number of people in the OVC would know about the Aset Ka then they would surely be sleeping and also would not know the VVC, vampire websites/communities and all the other houses.

I do agree with that. Smile

My original post only meant to work as a reference to other users, didn't mean to start any mess with it. I didn't see Zakary's participation as something wrong either, it seems like he just joined to defend his text as it was being discussed and that is understandable.

Take it just as a reference and move on...
