It is interesting that we find the Tibetan deity Agni Tara in the Necronomicon by Simon. However, the true Necronomicon Alchemist (Ninzuwu) recognizes that when we are speaking about this system, we must understand that it is part of what is known as the Primordial Tradition. Wikipedia, for example defines the Primordial Tradition in the following words:
“The Primordial Tradition seeks to establish a fundamental origin of religious belief in all authentic religious teachings, adhering to the principle that universal truths are a cross-cultural phenomenon and transcendent of their respective traditions, mythologies, and religious beliefs.”
The Necronomicon by Simon seeks to establish the spiritual cosmology of Ancient Mesopotamia as the “fundamental origin” behind modern belief. Ironically, although this revered text is often thought of as a Sumerian grimoire, there are more Asian deities in the Necronomicon tome that those that existed in Mesopotamia or previous civilizations of this same region.
It is due to the aforementioned reasons that we find an abundance of composite deities in the Necronomicon’s section titled The Book of Fifty Names. It is within the pages of this section that we do find, under the forty-sixth name Gibil, the word of power as being BAALAGNITARRA.
Gibil’s word of power is indeed a composite deity. This word of power actually breaks down to three terms; BAALAGNITARRA equals baal meaning lord and AgniTarra or Agni Tara, a Tibetan deity. Unfortunately, there isn’t a lot of information on Agni Tara. However, in an online 2002 article featured on the Tattoo Heaven website, written by Trinley Dorje that is titled Agni Tara, we find the following information:
“Tibetan goddess Agni Tara embodies the transformative element of Fire in all its forms, which the ancients perceived as being of a single nature: fire, lightning, and chi or qi* were considered to be variations of the same cosmic force. In other words She is the spark, the energizing force in the Cosmos, the universal Shakti. As the sacred fire, Her role is that of a messenger between man (or woman) and Eternal Source.
Agni Tara is the patron goddess of warriors, yogis and shamans, tantrikas, lovers and healers, blacksmiths and firemen. In the modern world She is the Protectress from toxic pollution, radiation, or nuclear fallout, as well as the effects of chemical and biological weapons. (The last of those responsibilities She shares with Sri Devi Palden Lhamo.) Because mastery of fire and kundalini promote health and success, Agni Tara is also a wealth and long-life goddess.”
It would seem obvious that the Tibetan deity Agni Tara appears in the Necronomicon and is associated with the Sumerian fire god Gibil due to a similar cosmic quality. It is in this regard the Agni Tara was determined as the forty-sixth word of power.
