Shetaut Netjer nu Khemtnu was the sacred Spiritual Wisdom of the Khemtnu. It is believed to have been pronounced "Sha-Ta-oot Nahd-cher"--translating roughly into The Khemetan Secrets of the Divine Self and Wisdom of That Which Is Hidden Behind All Creation.

Shetaut Netjer. In this scene, yAnepu "weighs the heart" of the deceased on the "Scales of Ma'ot".

Commonly referred to as "Egyptian Yoga", Shetaut Netjer became the foundation for all other spiritual and religious systems that followed throughout time. Even to this day, there can not be found one religious system that does not incorporate at least some aspect, concept, script, deity or practice that originated in the Shetaut Netjer. Christianity, Islam, judaism, Buddhism, Hindu, even "Satanism" and others All involve Ancient Wisdom rooted in the Khemetan Spirituality.

Sacred Meaning

The preeminent Wisdom in Shetaut Netjer is that One is a spiritual incarnation on Earth, and once its myths, rituals and transcendent teachings have been mastered, the practitioner then can experience what was known as The uAsar'an (Osirian) Death once the mortal body no longer carries the energy of life. It must be Overstood, however, that these most-sacred Khemetan Teachings were not taught to the masses--both natural citizens and wanderers alike.[1] These "Divine Secrets" were reserved only for the Suten (King), Heir to the throne and for the most learned High Priests who were proven worthy.[2] It is important to understand the meaning of the term Shetaut Netjer in order to get a better Overstanding of its spiritual importance to the Khemtnu. It can be deconstructed as follows:

Suten Horemheb (2nd from right). In this scene, Horemheb is being guided to a "uWasar'an Death" by Heru and yAnepu.
  • "Sheti" comes from the root word Sheta, meaning "hidden, secret, unknown, that which can not be seen nor understood, a mystery".[3]
  • According to the Khemtnu, All things--both living, material and images--contained this "hidden spirituality"[4]--and the Rituals, Words of Power[5] and Netjer Medu collectively comprised Shetaut Netjer. Even the Netjeru possessed and obtained these "hidden secrets", albeit on Higher Planes and Frequencies; it was said that the Netjeru obtained Their Own Sacred Wisdom through Shetat.[6]
  • "The Hidden Power", "Mysterious One", "Power Beyond Understanding" is said to be Shetai. Shetai later became known by the Obarayi (Hebrews) and Phoenicians as El-Shaddai, also meaning "The Hidden One" and "God Almighty".[7] [8]
  • The Ba of the Great Netjer Amun was known as Shet-Ba, or "The One with the Hidden Soul".[9] This was the primary reason why the name "Amun" became known as The Hidden One.
  • Sheti, or "spiritual discipline", means to deeply Overstand these "hidden secrets" through proper Study of its teachings and texts. If persistent, One may achieve Nehas-et (spiritual awakening).
  • Shet-et, or "mummy", is where One can perfect the spirit, and if perfected, the "one hidden in the coffin" is revealed, or Shet-i.[10]

--Additional Notes--

  • It was said that once One had become "One with uAsar" or "One with Heru", he or she would carry the title KRST--meaning "One Anointed in the Highest Light" or "The Risen Light"--from the moment of mortal death on into Amen'Ta ("The Hidden Land"). This title KRST was to later transfer into the Hindu Krishna, Buddhist Budh, Christian Christ and even jewish Eli-Jah.[11]
  • Eli-Jah is not directly called "KRST/Christ" because jews do not recognize "christ (jesus)" as a "savior". However, in legend, jews state that Eli-Jah "ascended in a chariot of light"[12] who was to "..rise with healing in his wings.."[13], and therefore the motif of "The Risen Light" or KRST is the same.
