What Is A Djedhi Adept?
A Djedhi Adept is an evolved spiritual seeker who has acquired all the
inner and outer skills and aptitudes to meet any challenge that life
places before them. The outer skills of a Djedhi Adept is a skill set
that includes training in martial arts, survival skills, physical
fitness, healing, nutrition, building, alchemy, psychology, sacred
geometry, business, and more. The inner aptitudes of Djedhi
Adept include razor-sharp discrimination, piercing concentration,
ingenuity, courage, and intuition. Such a highly trained Adept can
survive in any environment no matter what the circumstances.
A Djedhi Adept is a member of a tradition that has its roots in ancient
Egypt. Like his or her ancient Egyptian predecessors, a Djedhi
Adept seeks to Master the Dragon Force while being guided by the
intuitive Serpent Wisdom that is always coming from within. A Djedhi
Adept is one who has moved the Dj, the inner snake or serpent power, up
the Djed Pillar, the spinal column, and into the head in order to fully
activate the Third Eye of intuitive, Gnostic Wisdom.
Although rooted in the distant past, a Djedhi Adept is a teacher of the
new era, which the Native Americans refer to as the “Fifth World.” The
Fifth World is prophesied to be a world of peace and balance, when the
male and female principles will finally exist in perfect balance. Thus,
a Djedhi Adept is either a man or woman who has developed a male-female
balance within him or herself and can, consequently, call upon either
their inner male or female nature when required. They can also inwardly
unite the polarity to awaken and move the inner Dragon Force upwards
and/or synchronize the left and right hemispheres of the brain to
produce Gnostic Consciousness.
Finally, a Djedhi Adept is equally at home wherever he or she exists,
whether it be in a cloistered monastery or fully immersed in the mundane
world. Their only agenda is to grow spiritually while serving and
protecting the Earth and all its people.
Star Missionaries of the Djedhi
The most ancient roots of the Djedhi School of Ancient Wisdom is in the
stars. The first teachers of the Djedhi Wisdom on Earth came from many "Star
Nations" throughout the galaxy, especially the Pleiades, which are represented
as the seven stars on our logo. From the Pleiades, which the ancients recognized
to be the galactic seat of the Goddess and the "Seven Pillars of Sophia," came
the Son of the Goddess known as Karttikeya. Krittika is the Sanscrit name for
the Pleiades, and Karttikeya means "Son of the Pleiades." The Son is and has
been also known by other names. The Hindus call him Sanat Kumara. The Sumerians
knew him as Enki. The Hopis know him as Masau'u. The Yezidis call him Tawsi
Melek, the Peacock Angel. The Pagan and Nature traditions simply known him as
the Son of the Goddess. He was the first Guru and Adept of the mysteries on
Earth. He was the first Djedhi Adept.
According to the Gnostics, Karttikeya was sent to Earth with the secrets of
human evolution. He brought the secrets of how to awaken the evolutionary force
at the base of the spine, the Serpent Power, so all humans could evolve to their
highest potential. He also brought the secrets regarding how to move this power
upwards along the spine to the Third Eye to awaken Gnostic Awareness. Each human
on Earth was thus given the potential to achieve the highest Self-Knowledge of
"I am the Infinite Spirit in a physical body." This was the reason that the
Goddess sent Her Son as a misisonary to Earth. It
was so humanity could know its divinity.
The Son from the Pleiades brought with him an entourage of early Djedhi Adepts.
When the Son became the first priest king on Earth they became the members of
his court. When he desired to spread the Djedhi Mysteries around the globe they
became his missionaries. They founded the Great
White Brotherhood as a vehicle for the proliferation of the Mysteries. They also
nations that were part of the Worldwide Dragon Culture. Within these nations
they became the ruling "Dragons" and
"Serpents" who transmitted the Djedhi Mysteries to those worthy of receiving
Within the Worldwide Dragon Culture was ancient Egypt. It was here that the
specific form of the Djedhi Mysteries we teach in the Djedhi School of Ancient
Mysteries were fully developed. The Left Eye of Horus on our logo reveals our
link to our Egyptian predecessors and the secret wisdom they left behind.
Origins: The Egyptian Djedhi Adepts
The Djedhi Adept tradition began with a magician-priesthood that once
flourished in ancient Egypt. The ancient Egyptian priests and priestesses
were the country's teachers and protectors who armed themselves with staffs,
crystals and other magical tools full of the Dragon Force. The goal of a
Djedhi Adept was to accumulate and master the Dragon Force which was used
for magic, healing, victory in battle, and rapid spiritual evolution. They
knew the secret of how to awaken and lead the inner Dragon Force, the “Dj,”
up the “Djed” column, the spine, to awaken the power centers (chakras) and
the Third Eye, the seat of “Serpent Wisdom” or Gnosis. As a symbol of their
spiritual evolvement the Djedhi Adept wore a ceremonial band of gold that
encircled their head and covered their Third Eye
The Djedhi Adepts were once stationed in temples all over Egypt. They daily
sought to increase their Dragon Force in order to empower their magic, which
they learned from other Djedhi Adepts as well as the scrolls kept in the
massive esoteric libraries, the "Houses of Life," that were attached to the
temple compounds they lived in and administered.
Origins: The Worldwide Dragon Culture
The Egyptian Djedhi were part of a worldwide culture of enlightened
Dragons and Serpents which at one time completely encircled the globe.
Within this Dragon Culture the priest kings, magician priests, and heads of
the mystery schools were all known by indigenous names meaning “Snake” and
“Dragon.” They had awakened, and been consumed by, the inner, alchemical
Dragon Force. They had also raised the Dragon Force to the Third Eye and
Heart Chakra to fully activate their inner Serpent Wisdom.
Following the demise
of the legendary Motherlands the Pleiadean Son helped to found - Lemuria in
the Pacific Ocean and Atlantis in the Atlantic Ocean - many enlightened
adepts known as Serpents and Dragons traveled to various parts of the planet
to establish new civilizations. Within these new civilizations they
became the priest kings, the heads of the mystery schools and the
enlightened masters. In
Middle America the adepts and priest kings were known as the Quetzlcoatls,
the “Plumed Serpents;” in China, the emperors, and enlightened masters were
known as the Lung Dragons; in India, they were the Nagas; in Peru, they
manifested as the Amarus, which means "Serpents" in the indigenous Qechua
language; in Britain, they were renown as the Druid Adders; and in Egypt,
they manifested as the Djedhi who served their people as monarchs, and
teachers of the mysteries.
Collectively, the various civilizations that comprised the Worldwide Dragon
Culture shared the following features:
* Veneration of a Primal Serpent or Dragon as the Creator of the Universe.
* Rule by a Priest-King who was an embodiment of the Primal Dragon Creator
and used his Divine Dragon Force to fuel his kingdom.
* Belief that the highest goal of human life is to alchemically transform
and acquire the Primal Dragon Creator’s Serpent Wisdom and Dragon Power.
* Promulgation of the Gnostic-Alchemical Path by adepts known as Dragons
Construction of megalithic temples and pyramids over Dragon Lairs (or
vortexes) that served as World Trees or World Mountains upon which the
Primal Serpent spiraled down from the heavens, and where initiations
occurred during which the inner Dragon Force was awakened.
* Adoption of Dragon mantras that invoked the power of the Primal Dragon and
awakened the inner Dragon Force.
* Observance of Dragon Calendars that charted and predicted the movements of
the Celestial Dragons of the Pleiades, Venus, etc.
* Belief in reincarnation, during which a soul gradually evolved to a level
suited for initiation into the gnostic-alchemical path and mastery of the
Adepts of the Worldwide Dragon Culture
Throughout the Worldwide Dragon Culture were powerful Adepts who
were both masters of the Serpent Power and Dragon Wisdom. They were the
priest kings and priestess queens and their knights, as well as the heads of
the mystery schools and their enlightened disciples.
The following is a list of some of the Dragon Adepts who co-existed with
their cousins, the Djedhi Adepts of Egypt, as members of the Worldwide
The Adepts of Persia included the priest kings including King
Jamshid, the "Resplendant Cup," and King Key-Koshrow whose court resembled
that of the much later King Arthur. Their goal was the acquisition and
mastery of the Dragon Force, which they called “Farr.” Only those Persian
Adepts with the most Farr could command a kingdom and achieve the pinnacle
of human spiritual evolution. The Farr was passed to from an outgoing
monarch to an incoming king, and the power passed to a knight or
"Nart" through both initiation and by drinking out of a Holy Grail Chalice
known as a Nartmongue, the “Knight Cup.” At the “Camelot” of the great
Persian King Key-Khosrow the Narts
would sit around a table while the Nartmongue was passed from one knight to
the next. Only the most spiritually advanced and pure Narts were allowed to
drink from the Nartmongue and imbibe its immense Farr.
Many Persians eventually achieved very high states of gnostic consciousness
through the alchemical influence of the Farr, and some priest
kings eventually abdicated their throne in favor of spending the remaining
years of their life in spiritual contemplation. One such enlightened monarch
was the famous King Key-Lohrasp, a monarch of the Kayanid Dynasty who ruled
Persia during the time of the Prophet Zoroaster.
Cousins to the Persian Narts and the possessors of common ancestors were the
Scythian (Greek) or Saka (Persian) Knights. Their immense Dragon Force is
revealed by their name, Saka, which as sak in Avestan and śak in Sanscrit
denotes "being powerful." Another interpretation of Saka comes from Madam
Blavatsky, who in her tome, The Secret Doctrine, states that esoterically
the term Saka denotes a “Dragon of Wisdom.”
According to the Tantric scripture known as the Deva Samhitā, the Scythian
Sakas were born from the locks or “Jatas” of Shiva when the great lord
banged them upon the side of Mount Kailash in a fit of rage after being
dishonored. From Shiva’s locks emerged the greatest of warriors, Virabhadra,
the ancestor of all Scythians, who subsequently gained a measure of
vengeance for Shiva. Stemming from their origin from Shiva’s locks, the
appellation “Jats” has been an alternate title for many Scythian tribes.
In their recollections the Greeks of the Black Sea also assigned a
supernatural origin to the Scythians. The Greek historians identified the
ancient parents of the Scythians as Hercules and a magical dragoness, whose
body was a half human and half dragon.
Among the Scythians the Dragon Force was also known as Farr. The Scythian
monarchs passed this power among themselves, but they also daily received it
from their four golden Holy Grails - a plough, a yoke, a battle-axe, and a
drinking-cup – that anciently fell from the heavens and supported each
The Adepts of India were disciples and students of Karttikeya or
Sanat Kumara, the Pleiadean Son who had founded the path of Yoga and
Alchemy. Through the awakening of the inner Serpent Power or
"Kundalini," and the Hindu Adepts achieved both mastery of the Force and
Gnostic Awareness. Many such Adepts became Satgurus with the ability to
awaken another person's Kundalini through a thought, word, look or touch.
Once awakened, these Adepts had the power to safely guide the Kundalini to
the Third Eye of their disciples.
Some of the Hindu Adepts were members of the Kshatriya Caste. The
priest kings, prietess queens and their knights were members of this
caste. The term Kshatriya denotes both “authority” and “power. Their Dragon
Force was called Shakti, a term related to “Saka,” the name of their cousins
who at one time occupied large portions of India.
The Kshatriya Adeptss defended their kingdoms both with
Shakti-empowered weaponry as well as mantras and incantations known as
Astras. When intoned correctly a Shakti-infused Astra could produce a huge
ball of fire that would fall upon an opposing army, or perhaps it would stir
up a massively destructive force in nature that would completely decimate
The Samurai Knights of ancient Japan served their masters and
mistresses with prodigious Dragon Force acquired through strict observance
of Bushido, a warrior code that stressed frugality, loyalty, mastery of
martial arts, and honor unto death. A Samurai dedicated his life to the
nobility he served and was always ready to sacrifice his life to protect
them and their kingdoms.
The earliest emperors and knights of China were referred to as
“Dragons” because of their formidable Dragon Force or “Ling,” and the
profound Dragon Wisdom that typically accompanied it. Many of the earliest
emperors were said to have been born from dragons and even possessed their
physical features, such as great size, abnormally shaped heads, two pupils
in each eye, leathery skin, and whiskers even at birth. Those reputable
Dragon Emperors who followed a righteous life in accordance with the sacred
traditions flourished and during their reigns China was prosperous, but
those monarchs who transgressed the path of righteousness and resorted to
self-serving behavior - such as the megalomaniacal emperor Shih Huang-Ti,
became depleted of their Ling and China suffered through devastating drought
Beginning with the great Dragon Emperor Huang-ti, the “Yellow Emperor” who
founded Taoism many seekers achieved Mastery of the Force and Gnostic
Awareness through the practices of Taoism. Toaism retains a rich tradition
of virtually thousands of seekers who became Adepts and Hsien or "Immortals"
through its path of Tai Chi, Chigung, alchemy and yoga.
Like the Persian Kings, the Chinese emperors often abdicated the
throne in order to spend the remainder of their lives in remote mountain
hermitages where they could dedicate all their time to Taoist practices.
Through mastering Taoist alchemy some even achieved both physical and
The Knights Templar
The Djedhi School of Ancient Wisdom is also intimately related to
the Ancient and Noble Order of the Knights Templar.
The Knights Templar is an order of spiritual warriors that evolved out of
the Worldwide Dragon Culture and its many orders of Dragon Knights. When the
Dragon Kings and Queens of the WDC were replaced with monarchs without a
dragon pedigree, orders of Dragon Knights governed by Dragon Force-empowered
grandmasters arose to take their place. One such order was the Assassins, an
order founded in the Albourz Mountains of Persia by the Sufi Hasan-i-Sabah,
whose agenda was to revive the Holy Grail tradition of the Persian Dragon
Kings and reoccupy their ancient castles. Another was the Knights Templar.
The Knights Templar became Dragon Knights through their study with
many Sufi and Essene-Kabbalistic adepts, which they synthesized into a Holy
Grail Mystery tradition. From the Sufis they acquired an abundance of
alchemical and sacred science wisdom, and from the Essenes and members of
the ancient Johannite Church they acquired profound gnostic wisdom. The
Templars became the guardians of the Johannite Church in 1118 CE, the same
year they were founded, when the Johannite Grandmaster Theoclete passed the
church and its lineage to Hughes de Payen, the first Templar grandmaster,
who thus became John #70 in as very long lineage of gnostic adepts that
stretched back to John the Baptist and beyond.
Within the Templars’ Holy Grail Mystery School the goal was to accumulate
and guard the Dragon Force, which became known to the Knights as the Holy
Spirit, the Alchemical Force, Baphomet, and the Holy Grail power. The
Templars acquired many Holy Grails and became their guardian. Their Holy
Grails included many sacred Chalices, the Holy Shroud, the Veil of Veronica,
pieces of the True Cross, and the Head of John the Baptist. All these Holy
Grails had been invested with prodigious Dragon Force through the touch of a
Human Holy Grail, such as Jesus or John the Baptist, or by having held their
body fluids. Of all Holy Grails the Head of John the Baptist was considered
the most sacred by the Templars. As Johannite Gnostics they were directly
descended from John and acknowledged him to be the founder of their
tradition and their true Savior. A Templar Knight’s connection to John was
made as soon as was initiated into the Templar Order. At that time a cord
that had been wrapped around the Head of John and soaked up the power of the
Baptist was given to them with the instructions it was to be worn around the
waist at all times.
During initiation into the Templar Order many of the incoming knights also
underwent a special rite during which the Dragon Force was transferred to
them from an initiating knight. The new knight was first ordered to remove
all his clothing and then the initiating knight would kiss them below the
navel and at the base of the spine, two places where the sleeping Dragon
Force can be awakened. The new knight also received a kiss on the mouth,
during which the initiating knight would blow some of his Dragon Force
directly into the mouth of the new knight. The Dragon Force could then move
through the body of the new knight and ultimately awaken his dormant power
at the base of the spine.
One of the names by which the Knights Templar referred to the Head of John
the Baptist was Baphomet. Baphomet, meaning “baptism of wisdom,” was a
general term for the Dragon Force, and it was the name for John’s Head that
continually emanated the power in great abundance.
Representations of Baphomet as an androgynous, goat-headed deity were
erected by the Templars in their preceptories and attached to the inner and
outer walls of the Gothic Cathedrals they helped design and build around
Europe. The most popular version of goat-headed Baphomet is the one drawn by
the 19th century French Occultist Eliphas Levi. Every feature of Levi’s
Baphomet is symbolic of a characteristic of the Dragon Force. The
androgynous features of Baphomet (female breasts, male phallus) represent
the androgynous nature of Dragon Force, which was a truth known by
alchemists all over Europe who sought to produce the androgynous power in
their laboratories by uniting polar opposite substances. The dark,
forbidding image of Baphomet represents the deathly, destructive function of
the Dragon Force, which destroys all those parts of a person that keep him
or her from knowing themselves as God/Goddess incarnate. And the alchemical
words tattooed to the forearms of Baphomet, solve and coagula, denote two
stages in the alchemical process that is driven by the Dragon Force.
