Day of opening the doors of the courts at Karnak
16th day of the month of Pamenot in the year 5109 ( 30th January 2009 )
Sadly, this is a event in our great calendar that has not truly been practised by our faith full for thousands of years.
As we no longer practise the rituals of our great faith in the halls of this one of our greatest temples.
Despite this fact as with many of our faiths rituals over the centuries since we where finally forced to leave our beloved temples we have adapted the ritual while trying to keep it as close as we can to the great ceremonies of our fore fathers.
It has been our hope that while we have developed with the times we could still stand before our ancestors and they would be as at home in our temples today as they where in their day.
The true Kemetic faith is as I am always trying to express nothing like the number of reconstruction versions of our faith who have tried to turn back time a follow a system that is just a personnel interpretation of what they think our faith was about.
Within the Federation, our followers have been following our faith in small bands from the times of our formation upon the death of Cleopatra 7th.
There are many who dispute this saying that they have never heard of us but we have been there but hidden in order to keep ourselves safe from the hatred of others who have followed those faiths who destroyed our temples and killed our followers and priests.
You only have to look at the final acts that where carried out against our holy temples by these people to understand why we had to disappear from view.
Today in a safer world but still one that is filled with bigotry and hatred we have like our ancestor opened our doors to the world to show our spiritual courts that lie within our hearts where our faith is housed in the greatest strongest temple that any man can have the human sprit and the human heart.
So let us open up to the outside world once again as our temples at Karnak did on this day every year.
In opening up our faith to the world we can once more show the world that we are not a cult obsessed with death or many of the other misconceptions that there are out there about our faith.
When non-believers look to our teachings, they will see that our faith is a faith which is in many ways more advanced that the world we live in.
We can show that we do not hold any prejudices against any one we teach that humanity should live together in harmony as one working together for the betterment of the Ma at and the continuing battle against the forces of chaos.
So on this day take your chance to open up to the world as we used to in the days that we held the temples of Karnak and once again let the world see the glories of our Great Gods and their teachings.
