The Papyrus of Ani, Chapter 54

Copyright 1997 by Neil Parker.


A spell to give breath in the underworld.

Words spoken by the Osiris Ani: I am the egg which [comes] from the Great Cackler. I have guarded that great place with Geb announced to the earth.

I live; it lives, being mighty. I live; I breathe the air.

I am the Weigher of Opposition; I go around behind his egg. I have illuminated the moment of Set.

O sweet one of the Two Lands, who is in the food, and in the lapis lazuli.

Guard you the one who is in his nest, the child who comes forth to you.
