A Djedhi Adept
& Origins of the Djedhi Tradition






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.


tOrigins: 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 founded new 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 them.

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 and Serpents.

* 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 Dragon Force.

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 Dragon Culture.

Persian Adepts

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.


Sythian Adepts

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 king’s reign.    

Hindu Adepts

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 opposition.    


Samurai Adepts

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.


Taoist Adepts

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 and pestilence.

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 spiritual immortality.

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.
