Lilonon Ananael is Nikolai Saunders' latest effort, the follow-up to the greatly received Claves Regni. The core of this new work is the monumental Ritual of Lilonon Ananael, a ritual designed to familiarize the novitiate with the various applications of the angels of Shemhamphorash and the nature of the governors of the Aethyrs. The governors themselves rule over various regions of consciousness and their legions of subservient spirits. They also correspond to the twelve tribes and the application of the governors through these twelve tribes should prove sufficient grounds for the novitiate to explore throughout their magical career. As it was with Saunders' previous works, Lilonon Ananael is a practical grimoire in the most classical sense of the word, and extensive ritual guide to the complex art of evocation.
The undulations of Light and Shadow, Good and Evil, Day and Night, are the dualistic representations of Truth perceived by our individuality. In other words, good and evil are simply matters of perspective; what is poison for one may prove profitable for another. However, in terms of Will it is that formula of The Magician in opposition to that of The Mystic. That is why certain specific operations in Lilonon Ananael are designed around Attainment or Enlightenment, while others are for more practical ends. One can not only exist as a magician or a mystic, anymore than one can be completely dominant or submissive in their dealings with others.
As the follow-up to both Arbor de Magistro and Claves Regni, the connections between the three books are interwoven in the ritual elements contained within. The branch of Enochian Magick represented by these three books, in conjunction with the Solomonic Form within, are representative of the Current of The Star System known as Scorpioniis upon Terra Munda. The Astrum Antares is represented in some of the various rituals, as was in Arbor de Magistro and the Aethyric Rites, specifically. The second of this series is Claves Regni, and while there are no spirits from within the aegis of Enochian Magick, the language used within, the various calls, and the invocations are strongly representative of Enochian. This, in addition, to the Enochian Calls used in the ten directions of the Temple, weave various threads into the fabric of the Work. The balancing of these occurs in this third book, Lilonon Ananael, where the Governors of the Aethyrs are called within their native environment and the spirits of Shemhamphorash are counterbalanced in their light and dark polarities. The Union of these Spirits corresponds to the passionate union of opposites above the Abyss nicely, which is a crucial element of Crowley's vantage point from within The City of Pyramids. The Astrum Antares is expanded upon within the text following the Rite Lilonon Ananael and several of the prerequisite rituals (or Outer and Theurgistic Rites) are represented. The Theurgist of The Aires (or that of the Astrum Antares) will then be able to accomplish the stocking of their Arsenal, or the fashioning of the several magical tools needed to accomplish the Work on High.

New title "The Great Perfection Doctrine" now available for pre-order - 21/08/2017
The next Nox Sine Occasu chapter has been unveiled: "The Great Perfection Doctrine". This new title marks a new beginning for the collection, with improved looks and materials. This is also the beginning of our collaboration with the great Russian author Volhv Veleslav. For more info and to secure a copy, please head over to: www.fallofman.eu/greatperfectiondoctrine.html
The Sinister Path as a distinctive school in Slavic-Russian paganism emerges in the mid-2000's, arousing a great number of controversies and interpretations of its nature and place in tradition. Undoubtedly rested upon analogous schools of other traditions (Tantrism, Western Hermetism, Alchemy, Odinism, etc.) its initiator Veleslav offers a path that has never existed in Slavic paganism (although prerequisites and mythological motives are definitely existing). Tens of books by various authors since then have elaborated on the doctrine of the Sinister Path, which proves its great appeal for pilgrims of the Spirit.
What we encounter in The Great Perfection Doctrine is a substantial difference with traditional Western doctrines between the Left-Hand Path and the Sinister Path of Slavic-Russian paganism. The fundamental tenets of the former accentuate individualism and deification of the adherent, that is expressed in well-known motto “Not to revere God, but to become God”. For paganism however, such stand is not part of the Left Path, but rather it is basic reality, the natural ground. The Sinister Path of Russian paganism goes further, holding that deification of the adherent is possibly the last but not final stage of the Path of the Work. The fact is, Divinity in form of images, names and shapes must be sacrificed to the Ultimate, the Unthinkable in terms of language or images; sacrificed to the Sacred, which is absolutely numinous and is present beyond names and forms, something that was pointed at by the Rhineland mystics Meister Eckhart and John Tauler, or by the Neoplatonists. Herein Veleslav inherits the tradition of apophatic definition of the super-being of the Sacred.
In The Great Perfection Doctrine, the author Veleslav calls us to proceed with the search or the Sacred within us even further, to transcend both what he calls the Dexter and the Sinister Paths, his teachings leading us along the Path which is not the path in itself, to the conscious inactivity, and thus return to the Natural State of the Prime Source.
The Great Perfection Doctrine marks the first time popular author Veleslav's works are available in English, making his crucial teachings available to a larger audience. According to Veleslav's teachings, there are three paths in the World, or three steps to walk the One Path:
- The Right-Hand Path: the Path Away from one’s True Nature, the external work.
- The Left-Hand Path: the Path of Return to one’s True Nature, the internal work.
- The Path of the Great Perfection, or the Path which is not the path in itself: a way to remain in one’s True Nature without separation between the one who remains and spiritual “inactivity”.
In the words of Veleslav: “The Path of the Great Perfection is a timeless teaching of self-disclosure of our True Nature, of spontaneous permanence in the PRIMORDIAL without being permanent, of non-conceptualized grasp of one’s True SELF as the UNBORN.” The Great Perfection Doctrine lays down the basis towards grasping that True Self, to the rediscovery of our true divine essence.
