Quotes concerning Pharaoh Smenkhkare from the book Moses and Akhenaten, Bear and Company, copyright 1990, 2002, by Ahmed Osman. Available at this link.
Osman uses the spelling “Semenkhkare”, whereas the traditional rendering among adherents of the Religion of Light in English is “Smenkhkare”.
The purpose of this paper is to briefly analyse Osman’s theories in light of the teaching of Mir Izgadda and the Pillars of the Religion of Light as a whole.
The Religion of Light is never treated as some cheap trinket which one would pick up in a novelty shop. It is not a game to be played like children in school. It is not something one puts away in a closet at the end of the day like a coat or a pair of shoes.
The Religion of Light and all that it entails is to be respected and honoured in one’s speech, in one’s actions and in one’s day to day living. Practising the Religion of Light and living the Religion is one and the same. The two can not be separated. The Religion of Light is lived every minute, every hour, every day throughout one’s entire lifetime. Those who claim to be devotees of Aten, yet at the same time show disrespect toward the Religion through their speech or actions, by mixing forms of falsehood with revelations of Truth, have no place in the halls of the Holy Temple.
