Knowledge for the Afterlife
The Egyptian Amduat - A Quest for Immortality
Knowledge for the Afterlife by Theodor Abt
Book DescriptionWhy the Amduat is significant -- every evening the sun becomes old and weak and finally sets behind the Western horizon. Yet, it rises again in the morning, rejuvenated. How is that possible? How could the sun for the Ancient Egyptians the Sun God become young and revitalised during the night, during his night journey? What happens during this time? The Amduat is a description of the journey of the Sun God through the night world, that is also the world of the deceased. The knowledge contained in the Amduat is meant for the dead Pharaoh. But the text also recommends this knowledge for living beings. Thus, the journey of the Sun God can also be seen as a symbolic representation of an inner psychic process of transformation and renewal.
