Thoth Tablet 1



I, THOTH, the Atlantean, master of mysteries

keeper of records, mighty king, magician,

living from generation to generation,

being about to pass into the halls of Amenti,

set down for the guidance of

those that are to come after,

these records of the mighty wisdom of Great Atlantis.


In the great city of KEOR on the island of UNDAL,

in a time far past, I began this incarnation.

Not as the little men of the present age did

the mighty ones of Atlantis live and die,

but rather from aeon to aeon did they renew

their life in the Halls of Amenti where the river of life

flows eternally onward.


A hundred times ten

have I descended the dark way that led into light,

and as many times have I ascended from the

darkness into the light my strength and power renewed.


Now for a time I descend,

and the men of KHEM (Khem is ancient Egypt)

shall know me no more.


But in a time yet unborn will I rise again,

mighty and potent, requiring an accounting

of those left behind me.


Then beware, O men of KHEM,

if ye have falsely betrayed my teaching,

for I shall cast ye down from your high estate

into the darkness of the caves from whence ye came.


Betray not my secrets

to the men of the North

or the men of the South

lest my curse fall upon ye.


Remember and heed my words,

for surely will I return again

and require of thee that which ye guard.

Aye, even from beyond time and

from beyond death will I return,

rewarding or punishing

as ye have requited your truest.


Great were my people in the ancient days,

great beyond the conception of the

little people now around me;

knowing the wisdom of old,

seeking far within the heart of infinity

knowledge that belonged to Earth’s youth.


Wise were we with the wisdom

of the Children of Light who dwelt among us.

Strong were we with the power drawn

from the eternal fire.


And of all these, greatest among the

children of men was my father, THOTME,

keeper of the great temple,

link between the Children of Light

who dwelt within the temple and the

races of men who inhabited the ten islands.


Mouthpiece, after the Three,

of the Dweller of UNAL,

speaking to the Kings

with the voice that must be obeyed.


Grew I there from a child into manhood,

being taught by my father the elder mysteries,

until in time there grew within the fire of wisdom,

until it burst into a consuming flame.


Naught desired I but the attainment of wisdom.

Until on a great day the command came from the

Dweller of the Temple that I be brought before him.

Few there were among the children of men

who had looked upon that mighty face and lived,

for not as the sons of men are the

Children of Light when they are not incarnate

in a physical body.


Chosen was I from the sons of men,

taught by the Dweller so that his

purposes might be fulfilled,

purposes yet unborn in the womb of time.


Long ages I dwelt in the Temple,

learning ever and yet ever more wisdom,

until I, too, approached the light emitted

from the great fire.


Taught me he, the path to Amenti,

the underworld where the great king sits

upon his throne of might.


Deep I bowed in homage before the Lords of Life

and the Lords of Death,

receiving as my gift the Key of Life.


Free was I of the Halls of Amenti,

bound not be death to the circle of life.

Far to the stars I journeyed until

space and time became as naught.


Then having drunk deep of the cup of wisdom,

I looked into the hearts of men and there found I

greater mysteries and was glad.

For only in the Search for Truth could my Soul

be stilled and the flame within be quenched.


Down through the ages I lived,

seeing those around me taste of the cup

of death and return again in the light of life.


Gradually from the Kingdoms of Atlantis passed waves

of consciousness that had been one with me,

only to be replaced by spawn of a lower star.


In obedience to the law,

the word of the Master grew into flower.

Downward into the darkness turned the

thoughts of the Atlanteans,

Until at last in this wrath arose from his AGWANTI,

the Dweller, (this word has no English equivalent;

it means a state of detachment)

speaking The Word, calling the power.


Deep in Earth’s heart, the sons of Amenti heard,

and hearing, directing the changing of the flower of fire

that burns eternally, changing and shifting, using the LOGOS,

until that great fire changed its direction.


Over the world then broke the great waters,

drowning and sinking,

changing Earth’s balance

until only the Temple of Light was left

standing on the great mountain on UNDAL

still rising out of the water;

some there were who were living,

saved from the rush of the fountains.


Called to me then the Master, saying:

Gather ye together my people.

Take them by the arts ye have learned of far across the waters,

until ye reach the land of the hairy barbarians,

dwelling in caves of the desert.

Follow there the plan that yet know of.


Gathered I then my people and

entered the great ship of the Master.

Upward we rose into the morning.

Dark beneath us lay the Temple.

Suddenly over it rose the waters.

Vanished from Earth,

until the time appointed,

was the great Temple.


Fast we fled toward the sun of the morning,

until beneath us lay the land of the children of KHEM.

Raging, they came with cudgels and spears,

lifted in anger seeking to slay and utterly destroy the Sons of Atlantis.


Then raised I my staff and directed a ray of vibration,

striking them still in their tracks as fragments

of stone of the mountain.


Then spoke I to them in words calm and peaceful,

telling them of the might of Atlantis,

saying we were children of the Sun and its messengers.

Cowed I them by my display of magic-science,

until at my feet they groveled, when I released them.


Long dwelt we in the land of KHEM,

long and yet long again.

Until obeying the commands of the Master,

who while sleeping yet lives eternally,

I sent from me the Sons of Atlantis,

sent them in many directions,

that from the womb of time wisdom

might rise again in her children.


Long time dwelt I in the land of KHEM,

doing great works by the wisdom within me.

Upward grew into the light of knowledge

the children of KHEM,

watered by the rains of my wisdom.


Blasted I then a path to Amenti so

that I might retain my powers,

living from age to age a Sun of Atlantis,

keeping the wisdom, preserving the records.


Great few the sons of KHEM,

conquering the people around them,

growing slowly upwards in Soul force.


Now for a time I go from among them into

the dark halls of Amenti,

deep in the halls of the Earth,

before the Lords of the powers,

face to face once again with the Dweller.


Raised I high over the entrance, a doorway, a gateway

leading down to Amenti.


Few there would be with courage to dare it,

few pass the portal to dark Amenti.

Raised over the passage, I, a mighty pyramid,

using the power that overcomes Earth force (gravity).

Deep and yet deeper place I a force-house or chamber;

from it carved I a circular passage

reaching almost to the great summit.


There in the apex, set I the crystal,

sending the ray into the “Time-Space,”

drawing the force from out of the ether,

concentrating upon the gateway to Amenti.


Other chambers I built and left vacant to all seeming,

yet hidden within them are the keys to Amenti.

He who in courage would dare the dark realms,

let him be purified first by long fasting.


Lie in the sarcophagus of stone in my chamber.

Then reveal I to him the great mysteries.

Soon shall he follow to where I shall meet him,

even in the darkness of Earth shall I meet him, I,

Thoth, Lord of Wisdom, meet him and hold him

and dwell with him always.


Builded I the Great Pyramid,

patterned after the pyramid of Earth force,

burning eternally so that it, too,

might remain through the ages.


In it, I builded my knowledge of “Magic-Science”

so that I might be here when again I return from Amenti,

Aye, while I sleep in the Halls of Amenti,

my Soul roaming free will incarnate,

dwell among men in this form or another. (Hermes, thrice-born.)


Emissary on Earth am I of the Dweller,

fulfilling his commands so many might be lifted.

Now return I to the halls of Amenti,

leaving behind me some of my wisdom.

Preserve ye and keep ye the command of the Dweller:

Lift ever upwards your eyes toward the light.


Surely in time, ye are one with the Master,

surely by right ye are one with the Master,

surely by right yet are one with the ALL.


Now, I depart from ye.

Know my commandments,

keep them and be them,

and I will be with you,

helping and guiding you into the Light.


Now before me opens the portal.

Go I down in the darkness of night.

The Emerald Tablets of Thoth the Atlantean – Translation & Preface

The Emerald Tablets of Thoth The Atlantean


Dr. Doreal, who has a connection with the Great White Lodge, which also works through the Pyramid Priest-hood, was instructed to recover and return to the Great Pyramid, these Ancient Tablets.

This was accomplished, but before returning them, Doreal was given permission to translate and retain a copy of the wisdom engraved on the Tablets.

This was done in 1925, and now, permission has been given for this translation by Doreal to be published solely through the Brotherhood of the White Temple. This is the only authorized, original and true rendition of these Emerald Tablets.

It is expected that many will scoff, yet the true student will read between the lines and gain wisdom. If the light is in you, the light which is engraved in the Tablets will respond.


When Thoth, the Atlantean and Master raised the people of Khem (Egypt) to a great civilization, and when the time came for him to leave Egypt, he erected The Great Pyramid over the entrance of the Great Halls of Amenti. In the Pyramid, he posited his records and appointed Guards for his secrets from among the highest of his people.

In later times, the descendants of these guards became the Pyramid Priests, while Thoth was deified as the God of Wisdom, the Recorder, by those in the age of darkness which followed his passing. In legend, the Halls of Amenti became the underworld, the Halls of the Gods, where the soul passed after death for judgment.

During later ages, the ego of Thoth passed into the bodies of men in the manner described in The Emerald Tablets, a Book of Record and Occult Wisdom which he wrote and left in the Pyramid for those of a future Age of Light.


His writings consist of twelve Tablets of Emerald Green formed from a substance created through alchemical transmutation.

They are imperishable, resistant to all elements, corrosion and acids. In effect, the atomic and cellular structure is fixed, and no change can take place, thus violating the material law of ionization.

Upon them are engraved characters in the Ancient Atlantean language; characters which respond to the attuned thought waves of the reader and which release much more wisdom and information than the characters do when merely deciphered. The Tablets are fastened together with hoops of a golden colored alloy suspended from a rod of the same material.

Dr. Doreal has translated this Work, and has published through the Brotherhood of the White Temple, a translation of ten of these twelve Tablets. He has divided the ten into thirteen parts for the sake of convenience. The last two Tablets are found in the “Interpretation of The Emerald Tablets”, also by Dr. Doreal.

In The Emerald Tablets are found secrets which will prove of inestimable value to the serious student. The following is an excerpt taken from this work:

“A Long time ago I, in my childhood, lay neath the stars on long buried Atlantis, dreaming of mysteries far above men. Then in my heart, grew there a great longing to conquer the pathway that led to the Stars.


Year after year I sought after wisdom, seeking new knowledge, following the way, until at last my soul, in great travail, broke from its bondage of earth-man. Free from the body, I flashed through the night. Unlocked at last for me was the star-space; free was I from the bondage of night.


Now to the end of space sought I wisdom, far beyond knowledge of finite man”.

 Translation & Interpretation by Doreal

Originally published in mimeographed form in the 1930s by a mysterious “Dr. Doreal,” these writings quickly became an underground sensation among esotoricists of the time.

Tablets 1-13 are part of the original work; tablets 14 and 15 are supplemental.

No one has ever seen the original tablets mentioned here, and in all likelihood, these writings would be considered channeled material today.

However, the Emerald Tablets of Thoth the Atlantean are still part of the modern Corpus Hermeticum, for they elaborate and deepen the meaning of the historical Emerald Tablet and writings of Thoth/Hermes.


by Doreal

In the following pages, I will reveal some of the mysteries which as yet have only been touched upon lightly either by myself or other teachers or students of truth.

Man’s search for understanding of the laws which regulate his life has been unending, yet always just beyond the veil which shields the higher planes from material man’s vision the truth has existed, ready to be assimilated by those who enlarge their vision by turning inward, not outward, in their search.

In the silence of material senses lies the key to the unveiling of wisdom. He who talks does not know; he who knows does not talk. The highest knowledge is unutterable, for it exists as an entity in lanes which transcend all material words or symbols.

All symbols are but keys to doors leading to truths, and many times the door is not opened because the key seems so great that the things which are beyond it are not visible. If we can understand that all keys, all material symbols are manifestations, are but extensions of a great law and truth, we will begin to develop the vision which will enable us to penetrate beyond the veil.

All things in all universes move according to law, and the law which regulates the movement of the planets is no more immutable than the law which regulates the material expressions of man.

One of the greatest of all Cosmic Laws is that which is responsible for the formation of man as a material being. The great aim of the mystery schools of all ages has been to reveal the workings of the Law which connect man the material and man the spiritual. The connecting link between the material man and the spiritual man is the intellectual man, for the mind partakes of both the material and immaterial qualities. The aspirant for higher knowledge must develop the intellectual side of his nature and so strengthen his will that is able to concentrate all powers of his being on and in the plane he desires.

The great search for light, life and love only begins on the material plane. Carried to its ultimate, its final goal is complete oneness with the universal consciousness. The foundation in the material is the first step; then comes the higher goal of spiritual attainment.

In the following pages, I will give an interpretation of the Emerald Tablets and their secret, hidden and esoteric meanings. Concealed in the words of Thoth are many meanings that do not appear on the surface. Light of knowledge brought to bear upon the Tablets will open many new fields for thought. “Read and be wise” but only if the light of your own consciousness awakens the deep-seated understanding which is an inherent quality of the soul.

In the Threefold Light,
