Tau - The Title Tau
Information about the Gnostic title Tau
TAU - MYSTICAL TITLE
Tau is used as a
title, given to Gnostic Bishops.
In Greek the letter Tau
forms a T, and also in Hebrew the letter called Tau is shaped like a
T ancient Hebrew. Thus the title Tau in terms of esoteric Occultism,
indicates the T Cross. The Tau cross, being given the meaning of a state
of complete enlightenment and immersion in the Divine Light the power of
being a Theolalite; hence, it indicates embodiment or realisation of
Gnosis and Sophia. Tau as a symbol represents the womb and vagina of the
Priestess, which is the source of life and enlightenment.
In Eastern Orthodox traditions, and those evolving from the Orthodox
tradition, generally it is the Greek Tau that is used, but in the Gnostic
tradition it is the Hebrew Tau, which bears added esoteric meaning because
it is the last letter of the Hebrew Alef-Bet, and therefore has the same
meaning as Omega in Greek the end or fruition, perfection and
completion. From this a deeper and more esoteric meaning may be drawn from
a saying of: I am Alpha and Omega, or I am Alef and Tau. All life
starts in the womb and enlightenment is also found there, the Holy Grail.
The beginning of the Great Work starts from the day you are born, and for
males at least, it ends in complete enlightenment that he receives from
the Goddess incarnate, the Priestess.
Although in Orthodox
traditions the title Tau is used synonymously with the title of Bishop,
and indicates the ecclesiastical function of a Bishop in apostolic
succession an overseer and direct successor to the original apostles. In
our esoteric apostolic succession, or Gnostic apostolic succession, the
title of Tau indicates something distinct from the title of Bishop a Tau
may be a Bishop in the sense of the exoteric apostolic succession, but the
title Tau is used to indicate a state of illumination and attainment. We
use this to indicate a realised individual or spiritual King or Queen who
has the capacity to transmit something of the power of their realisation.
