The Papyrus of Ani, Chapter 44

Copyright 1997 by Neil Parker.


A spell for not dying again in the underworld. Words spoken by the Osiris Ani:

My cavern is open; my cavern is open; the glorified spirits in darkness fall.

The Eye of Horus sanctifies me; the Opener of Ways has nursed me.

I have hidden myself among you, the never-setting stars.

[My] neck is as Ra; my face is open; my heart is on its place atop my mouth which [I] know.

I am Ra, behold, Ra himself.

I am not ignorant of you, I do not injure you.

Your father lives for you, the son of Nut. I am your great son who sees your secrets.

I am crowned as king of the gods; I will not die again in the underworld.
