Aims and Ideals
Lodge Tehuti is a full member Lodge of
the Servants of the Light School of Occult Science, having been
raised by the Domina Templi in 2002.
The patron of the Lodge, Tehuti or Thoth as he
is rendered in Greek gives an indication of the aims and ideals
of the Lodge.
To gain greater understanding of the Lord of
magic one must turn to the Ogdoad of Hermopolis. Accordingly life
emerges from the primeval swamp. The complimentary opposites thus
begin the process of creation. Nun, the active principle complements
the activity of his consort Naunet.
Soon to follow are Huh and Hauhet symbolized
as frogs, they both give rise to the alternating principles of
expansion and contraction, which brings the cosmic life principle
closer into manifestation.
The cosmic serpents Kuk and Kauket symbolic of
the levels of conscious and unconscious existence are next and
finally Tehuti and Maat.
Tehuti is the cosmic factor of Medu Neter who
speaks the divine Words and causes the vibrations of life to be
regulated. His consort Maat is that principle which establishes
order in the Universe.
Tehuti, the Neter of cosmic Resonance is the
cosmic scribe par excellence. He is depicted holding a reed pen
and palette. He thus records all occurrences in the Universe.
In this regard he is Lord of the Akashic records.
Tehuti is that divine energy which gives rise
to true speech and the use of divine words which brings all that
is, into manifestation. The Neter is the embodiment of divine
Wisdom, He is the intelligence of the Heart which when balanced
gives rise to right action.
In the Heliopolitan theology, there is an episode
of struggle which takes place between Heru and Set. It does not
end in either struggler destroying the other. Rather Heru pursues
a path of Reason and seeks counsel with the wisdom of Tehuti.
Set in this regard is the lower self which refuses to heed the
“words of wisdom”, eventually though he is sublimated
through his own humiliation and ignorance. The message here is
clear, that only when the aspirant aligns with all divine forces
can the lower self-cease to struggle.
He is also the Cosmic Magician who assists Auset
in bringing divine magic to bear on Ausar that allowed the latter
to father his son Heru. Indeed this aspect of Tehuti as Magician
is further represented in the legendary books of Thoth which are
supposed to contain all the arcane knowledge and magic of Egypt.
Again, in the Osirian mythos Tehuti is closely
associated with the Moon’s orbit; in this regard he is a
moon God with all the mysteries connected with this luminary.
According to the ancient texts Tehuti is also called the Heart
and Tongue of Ra. The latter points to the higher level of function
of the Neter. As the heart and tongue of Ra. Tehuti is identified
with the Will of Ra and executes this will through the vibration
Aims and Ideals of Lodge Tehuti
Lodge Tehuti is dedicated to the expansion of
the inner light through the avenues of teaching and healing.
Our Lodge is dedicated to being a conduit for
the principles of the patron. It is the aim and intention of the
Lodge to foster a greater understanding of Self-Knowledge and
spiritual development of its members through the use of rituals,
meditations and spiritual exercises.
The Lodge’s teachings can be symbolized
by a mystical circle which combines the teachings of Western Magic
with the indigenous teachings of the Spiritual Baptist tradition
of the Caribbean, this tradition comprises Christian and African
magical elements into a seamless whole. In addition our Lodge
is aimed at an authentic return to the teachings and practices
of Ancient Egypt through research and study of the ancient texts
of the Egyptian canon.
Since its inception Lodge Tehuti has conducted
a series of workshops which provide the forum for dispensation
of teachings geared towards helping the aspirant along the Path
There are other aspects to the Lodge’s
work which remain withdrawn.
Structure of Lodge Tehuti
Lodge Tehuti is comprised of an inner court of
full members. These are members who have been formally inducted
and have begun pursuing a structured programme of work. The SOL’s
first-degree course is used as the foundation of the teaching.
As the aspirant progresses other elements reminiscent of the Spiritual
Baptist and Egyptian traditions are gradually introduced.
The Outer Court is composed of individuals who
have been accepted as candidates but have not been formally inducted
into the Lodge. A member usually remains for one year in the outer
court before induction. Outer Court membership does not guarantee
induction .The preliminary course of the First degree is used
as the foundation teaching for outer court members.
Additionally the Lodge has set up an associate
membership group. This comprises those who either through circumstances
or conscious decision does not wish to join a magical Lodge. These
are individuals who may be pursuing other spiritual paths but
who are still supportive of the work of our Lodge and wish to
maintain an informal relationship with our work.
At present Lodge Tehuti is attempting
to spread its influence throughout the Caribbean. It is our intention
to extend the Divine Light by setting up active meditation groups
initially in the islands of Grenada and Barbados. Through the
establishment of these groups and the continuation of teachings
and training of those who come to the doors of our Lodge it is
hoped that the mandate of the Great Lord of magic will be fulfilled.
