Meeting With Your Own Daimon.


Σύστασις ἰδίου δαίμονος.


PMG VII. 505-28


The following rite is the sole example of an invocation of the personal guardian daimon to have come down to us from antiquity. Concerning the last section Betz says ďthe noble birth, representing creation, takes place in the temple at the time of the appearance of the Original Sea. This sea is identical with the sacred lake in the temple near the two pedestals of the evening bark (Sektat) and the morning bark (Manedjet). The temple represents the whole world, so that the four basements of the earth were shaken by the birth of Khepri, the master of all.Ē

 

῾Χαίρετε, Τύχη καὶ δαῖμον τοῦ τόπου τούτου καὶ ἐνεστῶσα ὥρα καἰ ἡ ἐνεστῶσα ἡμέρα καὶ πᾶσα ἡμέρα.

 

Hail, Tyche, and you, the daimon of this place, and you, the present hour, and you, the present day-and every day as well.
