The second letter of the Hebrew alphabet is ב (Beth or Bet) who’s numeric significance is 2 and its kabalistic significance is also 2. There are many ways of representing this letter/sign, some of which were used in the ancient world, here are some examples:
The following information is from 3 books: The Initiatic Path in the Arcana of the Tarot and Kabalah, Esoteric Course of Kabalah, and Manual of Practical Magic, all by Samael Aun Weor.

ARCANUM № 2
Arcanum № 2 is the Thesis proposing the Antithesis.
By means of this Arcanum the Matrix is modeled, and is made; it is where images take form.
It is the Fountain which accumulates the Waters of the Source.
It is the Dual manifestation of Unity.
The Unity unfolds itself giving rise to the Receptive, Productive Femininity in all of Nature.
KABALISTIC SEPHIROTH: “CHOKMAH.”
HEBRAIC LETTER: “BETH”.
TRANSCENDENTAL AXIOM: “THE WIND AND THE WAVES ALWAYS FAVOR HE WHO KNOWS HOW TO NAVIGATE.”

Description of the Card of the 2nd Arcanum: “THE PRIESTESS”
In the Waters of Life appear the two columns of the temple of Isis; the white, JAKIN and the black, BOAZ; Each one has four levels indicating the Four Bodies of Sin (Physical, Vital, Astral and Mental), above, a female Master appears seated between two larger columns.
She is within a temple and is facing us; for this reason the columns are reversed.
She is seated, indicating to us her Passive aspect, in Arcanum № 1 “The Magician” is standing, indicating to us his Active aspect.
She is showing her left profile, again showing her Negative aspect.
In her lap there is a half-opened book, which she partially covers with her shawl, indicating that she is Wisdom, that she teaches the Kabalah.
Upon her chest is the Ansata Cross, the symbol of life, the foundation, Venus, the Tao Cross.
The cross upon her naked breast signifies that its product, the Milk, is a symbol of the Virtues.
The Serpent upon her brow indicates MASTERY, that she is arisen.
Above her head are the horns of the Sacred Bull Apis, husband of the Divine Cow; internally the horns signify the Father, and externally, the “Psychological I” (our Defects).
We also find the attributes of the Calf or Kabir. The circle is the Serpent which bites its tail, representing the Cosmic Mother, the Sacred Cow. The veil which covers her face is the Veil of Isis.

ESOTERIC SIGNIFICANCE of Arcanum 2
Arcanum № 2 is The Priestess, Occult Science. In the domain of the Spirit, the One is the Father who is in Secret, [and] the Two is the Divine Mother who is the unfolding of the Father.
The Sacred Book of the Mayas, the Popol Vuh, states that God created man first from clay and later from wood (the Atlantean race), but that they forgot their “Fathers and Mothers”, they forgot “The Heart of Heaven”, then came the great flood and everything perished, they took refuge in caves in order to protect themselves and those collapsed (this is a reference to the submersion of Atlantis).
Each one of us has their own Father and Mother who are very sacred. In the Father and in Mother Kundalini we see the two columns Jakin and Boaz; it is they, which support the Temple.
The hebrew letter BETH [ ב ] expresses the dualism of the two columns of the Temple; Jakin is the right-hand column, which is White, the Man, the Masculine Principle; and Boaz, the left-hand column, is Black, the Woman, the Feminine Principle. Between the two columns “J.” and “B.” is the Great Arcanum, and it is precisely this which many Masonic brothers do not understand.
The Cubic Stone in its rough, raw or brute state is located between the two columns, and is converted into the Cubic Stone of Yesod once it is worked; this is none other than Sex, the Sephiroth Yesod, one must know the Arcanum, the Maithuna, [which is] represented by the chisel of Intelligence and the mallet of Willpower.
The ineffable words of the Goddess Neith have been carved in letters of gold upon the resplendent walls of the Temple of Wisdom:
“I AM ALL THAT [WHICH] HAS BEEN, IS, AND WILL BE, AND NO MORTAL HAS LIFTED MY VEIL.”
The veil symbolizes that the secrets of Mother Nature are hidden to the profane, and that it is only the Initiate, after incessant purifications and meditations who can draw it back. You must be valiant and raise the Veil of Isis; our Gnostic motto is THELEMA (Willpower).
The № 1 is THE FATHER WHO IS IN SECRET, it is the ETERNAL MASCULINE PRINCIPLE, and it is in itself Brahma, who has no form, he is impersonal, ineffable, although we may symbolize him with the Sun.
The № 2, THE DIVINE MOTHER, is the Eternal Feminine Principle which is symbolized by the Moon. BRAHMA has no form but is, in himself, the governor of the Universe, he is ISHVARA, the Eternal Masculine Principle, the Universal Principle of Life.
THE UNIVERSAL PRINCIPLE OF LIVE UNFOLDS INTO THE ETERNAL FEMININE PRINCIPLE, WHICH IS THE GREAT PRALAYA OF THE UNIVERSE, AND OF THE COSMOS, THE FECUNDADING WOMB FROM WHICH EVERYTHING IS BORN AND TO WHICH EVERYTHING RETURNS.
In the human being, the Cosmic Mother assumes the form of a Serpent. There are two serpents: The Tempting Serpent of Eden, who is the same as the Goddess Kali of the abominable Kundartiguador Organ and the Bronze Serpent who healed the Israelites in the desert or the KUNDALINI SERPENT. They are the Feminine Principles of the Universe; the Virgin and the Prostitute; the Divine Mother or White Moon and the Black Moon referring to Astaroth, (Kali in her Tenebrious aspect).
Arcanum № 2 is that of the PRIESTESS, in occultism it is said to be the Dual manifestation of the Unity. The Unity unfolds giving origin to the Receptive and Productive Femininity in all of Nature.
It is obvious that within the human organism there is this № 2 (the Imagination), and this is related with № 1, (the Willpower).
One must distinguish between INTENTIONAL IMAGINATION and MECHANICAL IMAGINATION, it is obvious that Mechanical Imagination is the same as Fantasy. The key of power rests in uniting Willpower and Imagination in VIBRANT HARMONY.
There is a key for traveling in Astral which is quick: “upon awakening from normal sleep, one closes the eyes without moving, and with the eyes closed one vividly imagines any place (but do not imagine that you are imagining). This must be translated into facts, feel completely sure of [that you] are in the imagined place, unite the Willpower with the Imagination and it is logical that if this union is achieved [then] the result is triumph. Put the Imagination into play, take a walk in the place that you are imagining with Faith”.
If one does this practice and achieves the interplay of the Willpower and the Imagination (which is feminine), without moving in bed, maintaining the sleepy state and imagining the place, putting the Willpower into play, and with the firm decision to get up and walk with, one will then be able to go wherever one wishes.
On a certain occasion I found myself in a forest and, while going upon a path, I was told about a mountain, and since it was a dangerous place, I went to investigate it in Astral. I imagined the mountain, I saw mist, some steps, and a group of adepts, upon entering that place they gave me a spoonful of bees’ honey, the food of the White Lodge, and the Bread of Wisdom, later I was told that I would be purged with castor oil to cleanse my stomach.
The next day I went out of the body whose stomach had been cleansed. I saw the stars and practiced the Rune MAN, the adepts commanded me to descend to the Worlds of the Infernos, so I entered into the region of profound darkness where I was attacked by terrible beasts. They were my “I’s”, I had to go through doors that I could barely pass, along narrow paths, and from here I went out through a cemetery. All that which is of the “Ego” is death and misfortune , it is Mephistopheles, ONE MUST WORK VERY HARD.
-From Ch.2 of The Initiatic Path in the Arcana of the Tarot and Kabalah by Samael Aun Weor
INITIATIC SIGNIFICANCE of Arcanum 2
The 2 is Negative. In the Temples in ancient times there was a PRIEST and a PREISTESS.
In Primordial Masonry there was a Master and a Mistress. Count Cagliostro tried to establish EGYPTIAN MASONRY in England, but he had many enemies and established two thrones. Giovanni Papini met Count Cagliostro on board a boat, they became friends and Cagliostro told him who he was. He wanted to avert the Second World War, but as no one took any notice of him, he went once again to Tibet, saying that he would return 60 years later.
EGYPTIAN MASONRY was grandiose; in ancient times, when the Sacred Hermaphrodites existed, the 1 and the 2 were fused. In the Polar Epoch of the First Protoplasmatic Race, humanity was Androgynous, then sexual reproduction took place in determined periods of the year; one divided into two; [and] that two was the son. In that epoch when someone was born, a ritual was performed. Human beings could increase or diminish to the size of the atom.
When a Master wanted to speak in a gentle manner he would make his Feminine Principle float ; when he wanted to show his firmness he would put forward his Masculine Principle, this is how the ELOHIM are.
The Latin tradition tells of how Aeneas went to the Sanctuary of Apollo (Book 4 of the Aeneid) and spoke with the oracle who told him what awaited him. Aeneas requested to see his dead father, sought entry to the Inferno. The terrible Sibyl, custodian of the woods of HECATE PROSERPINE (third aspect of the Divine Mother), the woods of Avernus, replied:
“The descent to Avernus is easy, the return to Earth is the difficult thing. Few are those who have achieved it.”
She asked him to obtain a branch sacred to Proserpine, the Divine Mother in her infernal aspect, whose leaves and branches were of gold. Aeneas made a sacrifice of some black sheep, then saw “Two doves” in flight, in them, the hero recognized the birds of his Divine Mother (a symbol of the Holy Spirit), this message he intelligently interpreted, the birds led him to the forest of Proserpine, to the branch which would enable him to enter the Inferno. Aeneas sacrificed four black cows, and Sibyl led him through Avernus to his dead father.
The MASCULINE AND FEMININE Principles conjoin in the Holy and Mysterious Tetragrammaton, an esoteric name which must not be spoken in vain and which has a relationship with the letters of the name of the Eternal in Hebrew: HE VAU HE YOD [ יהוה ] (Hebrew symbols which are read in reverse).
[ י ] YOD: THE ETERNAL MASCULINE PRINCIPLE.
[ ה ] HE: THE ETERNAL FEMININE PRINCIPLE.
[ ו ] VAU: THE PHALLIC MASCULINE PRINCIPLE; THE LINGAM.
[ ה ] HE: THE FEMININE PRINCIPLE; THE UTERUS, THE YONI.
[ יהוה ] YOD HE VAU HE IS REDUCED TO SSSSSSssssssss.
These four letters have within them, immense PRIESTLY power. They must be pronounced like the howling of a cyclone in the mountains, or imitating the wind. They are spoken softly when one wants TO HEAL ONE WHO IS ILL, or to invoke a Deity, they also serve for meditation.
Within these four letters are represented the Two Principles: Masculine and Feminine of the Macrocosmos and the Microcosmos; the Staff, Masculine Principle, and the Goblet , Feminine Principle. In these four letters is the Principle of the Eternal which must not be pronounced in vain.
The Number “2” is vital, the Temples of the Mysteries never lack “2” Altars. One can not enter into the Temple without passing by the Two Columns where there are TWO GUARDIANS. What would there be of the Great Life if the Number “2” did not exist?
The Matripadma receives the Masculine Fohat ray, the Holy Spirit, husband of the Divine Mother fecundates it, and the Universe comes into being. What would there be of life without the other principle?
Before the dawn of the Mahamanvantara, the Cosmic Day, nothing existed, the Gods lived in That which is nameless, without form, without sound, with out silence, and without hearing to perceive it. When life dawned, when the Dawn of Creation began, the First Logos called the Third Logos and said: “Go and fecundate your Wife so that existence may come forth”, and he began to work with the Seven Spirits before the throne and the Army of the Voice, and the Masonic Rituals were performed, and Chaotic Matter was fertilized , the Matripadma was fecundated, and the Universe came into existence.
Each one of the Seven Cosmocrators gave forth from their two Souls, the Buddhi, the Feminine Soul and [the] Causal, the Masculine Soul, symbolized by the CONSTELLATION OF PISCES. These two Souls, Husband and Wife practiced a transcendental Maithuna. She separated the Superior Waters from the Inferior Waters so that they were fecundated by the Fire, and projected them by means of the Verb.
The seeds of the proliferated Matripadma, expanded like a Lotus Flower and bore fruit, giving birth to a Cosmos.
In Electricity there is the Eternal Positive and the Eternal Negative.
In India the Masculine Principle is represented by a Bull, and the Feminine Principle by the Sacred White Cow which represents the Divine Mother and has her antithesis in the Black Cow.
We need to CHRISTIFY OURSELVES. No human being can return to the Father without having been devoured by the Serpent. No-one can be devoured by the Serpent without having worked in the Fiery Forge of Vulcan (Sex). The key of Christification is the Arcanum A.Z.F.
The Mantram of the Great Arcanum is I.A.O.
I IGNIS FIRE
A AQUA WATER
O ORIGO BEGINNING , SPIRIT
To the Fiery Forge of Vulcan they descended; Mars to re-temper his sword and conquer the heart of Venus; Hercules, to clean the stables of Augeas with the Sacred Fire; and Perseus, to cut off the head of the Medusa.
Remember, dear disciples, that our Divine Mother is Nuit, and that her word is “56”. This number breaks down kabalistically as follows: 5 + 6 = 11, then 1 + 1 = 2. One is the Father, two, Her, Nuit, the Divine MOTHER KUNDALINI. We have here the marvel of the number “2”.
-From Ch.24 of The Initiatic Path in the Arcana of the Tarot and Kabalah by Samael Aun Weor
SYNTHESIS of Arcanum 2:
Woman is the ATHANOR of SEXUAL ALCHEMY. Man left Paradise through the DOORS OF EDEN, and Eden is the same “Sex”. THE DOOR OF PARADISE IS SEX. THE WOMAN IS THAT DOOR.
The “Kundalini” is the Sacred Fire of the Holy Spirit, it is the Pentecostal Fire, it is the Igneous “Serpent” of our Magical Powers. The Kundalini is enclosed within the Muladhara Chakra located in the coccyx.
The secret of awakening the Kundalini is the following: “Introduce the virile member in the woman’s vagina and withdraw it without spilling the semen.” This practice is to be done slowly.
The Arcanum A.Z.F., Sexual Magic, or Maithuna, may only be practiced between HUSBAND AND WIFE IN LEGITIMATELY CONSTITUTED HOMES .
The practice of the Arcanum must be realized only once a day, if one practices twice in a day one drops into the Negative, violating the Recuperative Magnetic Pause.
-From Ch.24 of The Initiatic Path in the Arcana of the Tarot and Kabalah by Samael Aun Weor
The Second Arcanum: ARCANUM 2
Now let us study magical equilibrium, in Arcanum two of Tarot.
The physical body is organized with the elements.
The INTIMUS emanated from the interior Star that has always smiled upon us. And he is positively polarized. And the physical body is the negative shadow of the Intimus.
Spirit and matter live in eternal battle. When the spirit defeats matter, then it is a Master.
Maya (illusion) could not exist without duality. Force and matter are two modalities of the same thing: Energy. Matter is determinating energy and a determinator of new undulations .
Evolution is a process of the complication of the energy whose result is the Macro-Cosmos and the Micro-Cosmos.
The universe is Maya (illusion). The Universe exists because of Karma and it is a mass of floating shadows. When the Spirit (the Intimus) liberates itself from Maya, it returns to the AIN SOPH of the KABALAH.
In final synthesis each Being is just a super divine atom from the abstract absolute space. This atom is the Ain Soph. The ineffable gods from the AIN SOPH are beyond our comprehension.
The human mind is for the gods of the Ain Soph as the activities of the mineral kingdom are for us.
Within the Ain Soph only the unity of life reigns. This is supreme happiness. The universe is duality, Maya Pain. We need to liberate ourselves from the Binary and to return into the unity of life. It is urgent to go beyond the painful manifestations of Maya.
There exists a Science with which we can tear the veil of Maya and return to the Ain Soph. That science is ALCHEMY.
Doctor Arnold Krumm Heller, stated:
“A chemist forgot, by chance, about an emerald ring that was next to a little test tube containing radium and after few weeks he discovered that the emerald had absolutely changed into another unknown stone for him.
Thereafter he purposely left other stones like rubies, sapphires, etc., in contact with the Radium: his surprise was so great when he discovered that after a little time such stones had changed their color absolutely; the blue ones had turned into red and the red ones into green.”
Doctor Krumm Heller continued saying:
“Gentlemen, do you know what the former statement, which I do not consider that it is scientifically established, that I just mentioned means?
It means that Shakespeare was right when he said that ‘many things exist between heaven and earth that our scholastic consciousness does not even suspect,’ and that Alchemy is reborn, verifying the transmutations of metals.”
Man and woman must equilibrate their forces; they must become Alchemists, so that they can return to the Ain Soph. Circe offers the tempting Cup and Ulysses rejects her with his Sword.
In the sacred sign of the Infinite are represented the Planetary genie’s Brain, Heart, and Sex. This struggle is terrible, brain against sex, and sex against brain, and what is even more terrible is “heart against heart”. You know this.
On the Altars of the Temples of the Great White Lodge the Masters used to place three glasses of Loria, three glasses of Alchemy, each one of these three sacred glasses of the Temple contains a precious balm. The Red balm is the Fire, the Blue [balm] is the Water and the White [balm] is the Universal Spirit of Life.
Idá and Pingalá are the channels through which the atoms of Fire and Water ascend, the Spirit grasps the cane of Seven Knots; and that cane is the spinal medulla; When a man and a woman learn how to avoid the sexual spasm and the ejaculation of the “ENS SEMINIS”, then the Igneous Serpent of our Magical Powers awakens.
If you want to return to the Father who dwells in secret, you must first return to the bosom of your Divine Mother Kundalini. You need to raise the Serpent of Life through your medullar channel: This is Alchemy.
-From Ch.2 of Esoteric Course of Kabalah by Samael Aun Weor
You have forgotten your Divine Mother Kundalini. You need to worship the Divine and blessed Mother goddess of the World. You have been ungrateful to your Cosmic Mother. She is the Virgin of all religious cults. She is Isis, Mary, Cibeles, Adonia, Insoberta, etc.
The stone of grace is surrounded by nine delicious mountains. This stone is Sex. If you all want to return to the bosom of your divine Mother, you need to work with the PHILOSOPHER’S STONE: SEX.
The Mayans stated that in the first heaven God, the Verb, had held his stone, had held his serpent, and had held his substance. Only with the ARCANUM A.Z.F. can the Verb become flesh in order to grasp again its stone, its serpent and its substance. Then we will return to the Ain Soph; we will return into the unity of life.
You are the children of the Widow, your Divine Mother is now a Widow, but when she rises through the medullar channel, she marries the Eternal Beloved. Arcanum 2 is your Divine Mother, the Popess of the Tarot. She is crowned with a Tiara. The head of the Divine Mother is surrounded by a veil. You must be courageous and lift the Veil of Isis. Our Gnostic motto is Thelema (Willpower).
The Mother carries her son (the Verb) in her arms. And she is seated between the two columns that symbolize the man and the woman. Worship the Virgin of the Sea, brethren of mine. In Arcanum 2 of the Tarot the Divine Mother appears holding the priestly esoteric sign with her hand. Study within the Sacred Book of your Divine Mother.
“Ask and it shall be given to you.” “Knock and it shall be opened unto you.” [Matthew 7:7]
Your Divine Mother can confer upon you the Occult powers you long for. Pray to your Divine Mother; practice your esoteric exercises; you can ask your adorable Mother for Clairvoyance, Telepathy, Clairaudience, the faculties for astral projection , etc. You can be sure that your Divine Mother will listen to your petitions. You must meditate profoundly everyday upon your Divine Mother, praying, supplicating “You need to be devoured by the Serpent.”
One (1) is Man, two (2) is Woman; man is one column; Woman is the other. The two columns must not be too close nor too distant; there must be enough space so that the Light can pass between them.
It is necessary to transmute the Lead of the Personality into the pure Gold of the Spirit: This is Alchemy. The moon must be transformed into the sun. The moon is the Soul; the Sun is the Internal Christ. We need to be Christified.
No human Being can return to the Father without having been devoured by the Serpent. No one can be devoured by the Serpent without having worked in the Flaming Forge of Vulcan (Sex). The Key of Christification is the Arcanum A.Z.F.
The Mantram for the Great Arcanum is I.A.O. – I (Ignis), Fire; A (Aqua) Water; O (Origo), Principle, Spirit.
Mars descends into the Flaming Forge of Vulcan in order to retemper his sword and to conquer the heart of Venus; Hercules descends in order to clean the stables of Augias with the sacred Fire and Perseus descends in order to cut off Medusa’s head.
Remember, beloved disciples, that our Divine Mother is Nuit* and that her word is (56) Fifty and Six.
This number is kabalistically decomposed as follows: 5 plus 6 equals 11 [5 + 6 = 11]… 1 plus 1 is equal to 2 [1 + 1 = 2]. One is the Father; Two is her, Nuit, the Divine Mother Kundalini.
-From Ch.2 of Esoteric Course of Kabalah by Samael Aun Weor
1. Lay down on your bed, facing up and with your body relaxed.
2. Achieve the state of slumber by meditating upon the Sacred Serpent that dwells in the Coccygeal Chakra.
3. [Then] pray with all of your heart, meditating on the following prayer from the Sacred Ritual:
“Be Thou, Oh HADIT, my secret, the gnostic mystery of my being, the central point of my connection, my heart itself, and bloom on my fertile lips, made verb.
Up above, in the infinite heavens, in the profound height of the unknown, the incessant glow of light is the naked beauty of Nuit ; She reclines, she bends in delectable ecstasy, in order to receive the secret kiss of Hadit.
The winged sphere and the blue of the Sky are mine.”
O.A.O. KAKOF NA. KHONSA
O.A.O. KAKOF NA. KHONSA
O.A.O. KAKOF NA. KHONSA
These Mantrams have the power of transmuting our sexual energy into light and fire within the Alchemical laboratory of the human body:
This prayer with its Mantrams can be utilized in Sexual Magic; This prayer with its Mantrams is an omnipotent key in order to meditate upon our Divine Mother.
Master Huiracocha stated the following in his Rosicrucian novel:
“When a man joins with a woman in the secret act, he becomes a God since he converts himself into a Creator at that very moment. Some Seers state that in those precise moments of love, the two beings are seen enveloped by a brilliant burst of light; they are enveloped by the most subtle and potent forces that are in nature.
If you know how to seize the moment (not ejaculating the Ens Seminis); if you know how to retain such a vibration, then they can operate with it like a Magician in order to purify yourselves and obtain everything.
However, if you do not know how to retain this Light, abandoning it, in order to abandon it in the universal currents, then you will be leaving behind open doors, where evil introduces itself. Then love is converted into hatred, illusion is followed by deception.”
With the Mantric prayer that we have taught in this lesson, we retain that brilliant cosmic light that envelops the human couple in that supreme moment of love with the condition of avoiding, by all means, the ejaculation of the ENS SEMINIS.
The Mantrams of this invocation have the power of transmuting the creative energies into Light and Fire. The bachelors and bachelorettes can also transmute and sublimate their sexual energies and carry them to the heart with this prayer and these Mantrams. It is urgent to sublimate the sexual energy to the heart.
You must know that in the Heart Temple the creative energies are mixed with the forces of the Christ and they are elevated to the superior worlds. The Interior Christ lives in the Heart Temple. The Cross of Initiation is received in the Heart Temple.
And this Mantric prayer is also a formula of Priestly power that the Magician utilizes in his practices of Internal Meditation in order to arrive at the feet of his Divine Mother. If the Meditation is perfect, your adorable Mother will hear your call and she will come to you; then you can converse with her about ineffable things of Paradise.
She is Devi Kundalini. She is the Popess of the Tarot. The Divine Mother always listens to her devotees. In the sacred land of the Vedas, the Illuminated Ramakrishna was one of her most greatest devotees.
Do you want to reach the heights of Nirvikalpa-Samadhi? Do you need to develop Anubaya (Perception of your Inner God in meditation)? Do you want the Jinn Science? Remember that you have an Adorable Mother. “Ask and it shall be given to you. Knock and it shall be opened unto you.” [Matthew 7: 7]
