Dehn attributed authorship of The Book of Abramelin to Rabbi Yaakov Moelin (Hebrew יעקב בן משה מולין; ca. Abraham recounts how he found Abramelin the Mage living in the desert outside an Egyptian town, Arachi or Araki, which borders the Nile.
Abramelin’s home sat atop a small hill surrounded by trees.
The second book prescribes the details of the ritual he was taught and the extreme demands placed on the aspirant to the magick.To begin with, he encounters this magician in a desert outside the Egyptian town, Arachi, which borders the Nile river.Specifically, the home of Abramelin is located at the top of a small hill there, surrounded by trees.But if it be not for yourself that you are operating, but for two or more other persons, you should still name such persons aloud, and move the Symbols of the class or classes under which they come.Also, if possible, it is a good thing to touch them with the Symbol, on the bare skin, if you can.
The 'sacred magic', which dispenses with much of the complicated paraphernalia and ceremonial of the European tradition of ritual magic, is based on the principle that the material world is the creation of evil spirits which can be controlled by the magician, provided he has first acquired the 'knowledge and conversation" of his Holy Guardian Angel, a being taken by practitioners of the system to be the magician's true self.
