    The Hymn to The Aten

    By Akhenaten


    Glorious, you rise on the horizon of heaven,


    O living Aten, creator of life.


    When you have risen on the Eastern horizon


    You fill every land with your beauty.


    You are gorgeous, great and radiant, high over every land.


    Your rays embrace all the lands that you have made.


    You are Re and so you reach their boundaries,


    Limiting them for your beloved Son.


    Though you are far away, your rays are upon the Earth.


    Though you are seen, your movement is not.


    When you set on the Western horizon the land is dark, like death.


    Night is spent asleep as in a bedroom with a covered head,


    One eye does not see the other.


    If the possessions under their heads were stolen,


    No one would notice it.


    Every lion comes out from it's den, and every serpent bites.


    Darkness descends and the Earth is hushed,


    Because their maker rests on the horizon.


    The Earth is illuminated when you rise on the horizon


    And shine as the Aten in the daytime.


    You banish the darkness when you cast your rays.


    The Two Lands celebrate, lively and aroused now that you


    have awakened them ; with bodies cleansed and clothed


    they raise their arms to adore your rising.


    Now the whole land begins to work.


    All the cattle graze on the fodder, trees and plants grow.


    Birds fly up from their nests, their wings stretched in praise of your spirit.


    All the flocks gambol on their feet and everything that flies


    and perches lives because you have arisen for them.


    Ships sail to the North and South,while roads open at your rising.


    The fish in the river leap before you, for your rays are in the middle of the sea.


    You make the seed grow in women and create people from sperm.


    You feed the Son who lies in his Mother's womb


    and comfort him to stop his tears.


    You are the nurse within the womb,who gives breath to all that is made.


    On the day he is born you open his mouth to supply his needs.


    When the chick in the egg chirps within his shell you give him breath to live,


    And when his time is ready to break out from the shell


    he comes to proclaim his birth, walking on his legs.


    How many are the things you do, although hidden from view,


    O unique God, without compare.


    You created the world as you desired,


    Alone - all people, all cattle, all flocks, everything which walks with it's feet on the Earth and everything that flies with it's wings in the air.


    The Northern lands of Asia, the Southern lands of Africa


    and the land of Egypt - you have set every person in their place


    and you have supplied their needs.


    Everyone has his food and his allotted lifetime.


    Tongues differ in their speech, and also characters,


    For you have differentiated mankind.


    You created the Nile in the Netherworld.


    You bring him forth at your will to feed the people,


    Since you made them for yourself, Lord of all, who toils for them,


    Lord of all lands, the Aten who shines in the daytime, great in dignity.


    You make all distant lands live, for you have made a heavenly Nile


    come down for them, to make waves on the mountains like the sea,


    to irrigate the fields of their towns.


    O Lord of eternity, how excellent are your designs - a Nile from heaven


    for people of Foreign lands, and all the creatures which walk upon their feet and a Nile for Egypt coming from the Netherworld.


    Your rays suckle every field; when you shine they live and grow for you.


    You made the seasons to foster all that is made: Winter to cool them


    And Summer that they may feel you.


    You made a distant sky in which you might shine


    and to see everything you have made.


    You are alone, shining as the Living Aten,


    Risen, dazzling, far and yet near


    you have millions of manifestations of yourself
    .



    Towns, villages, fields, roads and waterways -


    every eye sees you upon them, for you are the Aten of the daytime...


    You are my beloved.


    There is none other that knows you except for your Son,


    Neferkheperure Waenre, whom you have made wise


    in your plans and your might.


    The creatures of the Earth exist in your hand as you have made them;


    when you rise they live, when you set they die.


    You yourself are the duration of life, it is by you that men live.


    Eyes may behold your beauty until you set,


    but when you set in the West all work ceases.


    When you rise...


    You raise them up for the Son who came forth from your body,


    the King of Upper and Lower Egypt, living in Truth,


    the Lord of the Two Lands Neferkheperure Waenre, Son of Re,


    living in Truth, Lord of glorious appearings, Akhenaten the long-lived.


    And as for the King's Great Wife whom he loves,


    the mistress of the two lands, Neferneferuaten-Nefertiti,


    may she live and flourish for ever and ever.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    I BELIEVE THAT AKHENATEN, THE ANCIENT EGYPTIAN PHAROAH, WAS A "MUSLIM". OF COURSE, THE PEOPLE DID NOT SPEAK ARABIC, SO THE RELIGION WAS NOT CALLED "ISLAM" BUT, "OBEYING THE WILL OF GOD" HAS BEEN HERE FROM THE BEGINNING.

    ONE DOES NOT NEED TO FOLLOW THE CULTURE OF THE ARABS TO BE A "MUSLIM". "ISLAM" DID NOT BEGIN 1600 YEARS AGO!!!


    Peace...

    Pharoah

    Salaams..

    Thanx for providing more proof that our fathers worshipped ONE GOD in their heights of glory.




    Koran 16:36-

    "For We assuredly sent amongst every People a messenger, with the Command, "Serve Allah, and eschew Evil": of the People were some whom Allah guided, and some on whom error became inevitably established. So travel through the earth, and see what was the end of those who denied the Truth."

    For those who doubt, follow Allah's advice and LOOK AROUND at those who rejected truth and turned to PAGANISM and IDOLATRY.....if you can still find them.

    Do you have anger or malice in you heart black man?

    If not, why nit pick and my choice of words for the ONE Creator?

    You said that you are a student of Elijah Muhammad and Fard Muhammad and both of them used the name Allah for the One true God.

    Why do you have a problem with me doing it?



    Let us not corrupt brutha PJ's valuable thread with "foolish" semantics and bickering.

    Laughing big time here. You don't wanna corrupt King Jahil's, who is your fellow Muslim, thread...but you do bring your foolish semantics and bickering to mostly everyone else's threads who don't share your (questionable) Islamic beliefs.

    By the way I'm curious...Do you know PJ outside of Destee.com?

    True indeed, not to mention the fact that I don't even think RALF read my statements in the link I posted to my site.

    KHUEN-ATEN didn't worship anything. His intercultural God "ATEN" was the result of a Hittite marriage arrangement to his beloved White woman, TADUKHIPA (NEFERTITTI).

    This is why we should seek to study the KNOWLEDGE and HISTORY of these people, and not focus on what we BELIEVE about them.

    KHUEN-ATEN was just as much of an idolator and a "PAGAN" as RALF claims of every body else.

    PEACE

    Peace son of man....

    Oh Nefertiti was a white woman?

    Thanx for dropping this world premiere of knowledge on me.


    Judging by this original sculpture of her, white people must have been a whole lot darker back in her day:

    I guess Alicia Keyes, Beyonce and any other light skinned sistaz embraced by the black community are "beloved white women" as well.




    Also thanx for pointing out that she was a Hittite when no one else in history has ever made such claim.
    You've really opened my eyes!!



    "Little is known about the origins of Nefertiti but it seems unlikely that she was of royal blood."

    http://www.akhet.co.uk/nefertit.htm


    "Nefertiti's origins are confusing. It has been suggested to me that Tiy was also her mother. Another suggestion is that Nefertiti was Akhenaten's cousin. Her wet nurse was the wife of the vizier Ay, who could have been Tiy's brother"

    It's interesting how you remain oblivious to other prominent areas of study, especially when you find them in conflict with your BELIEFS.

    As usual, your sarcasm was expected, yet it does nothing to validate your notions of a subject you've proven to have little knowledge of.

    This just proves your ignorance of archeology, amongst other things.

    That sculpture is not "original" in the least. In fact, it's a post modern replica of NEFERTITI, made in the past century.

    With all your "GOOGLING", you would at least have the common sense to READ the websites you link here thoroughly.

    Allow me to clarify: I'm not saying that TADUKHIPA was "lilly white", but as a EURASIAN, she was certainly not of Afro-Asiatic stock.

    Furthermore, have you stopped to ask yourself, why TADUKHIPA was lightskinned, when every SHEQHETI preceeding her was jet black? Where would this lightskinned strain have come from?

    Your ignorance about various subjects is borderlining the realm of ridiculous.

    The only reason you THINK that "no one else in history has ever made such claim", is because you are not at all well-versed or read on all/any things Kemetic.

    I'd request that you list your bibliophile on Kemetic history, culture, theology, etc.

    I'm willing to bet that you haven't read at least ONE book from cover to cover on the subject.

    I've read HUNDREDS.

    In the meantime, if you even bothered to read the info I posted on my website, then you would see that the info I posted is not mine, but rather a transcribed exerpt from one of the books that I'd read and researched.

    Go back and read the information man. And stop GOOGLING me to death.

    Not that the info on that site is totally credible, but that statement is correct. If you'd bothered to read the info from my website, you'd know that TADUKHIPA was indeed of royal linneage......Just not of AFRICAN or KEMETIC royal linneage.

    Conjecture and surmising.........No wonder you like these GOOGLE sites so much.

    The very initial statement says it all. There are archeologists and so-called Egyptologists who have established this theory for the past decade.

    There was even a piece on this subject not too long ago on one of the Learning Channels.....I'm assuming you watch more TV than BET and UPN, yes?

    Do the knowledge, my friend, and stop talking us to death about "Snake Cults" and what-not, and actually learn about this culture.
