Budge explains that an entire class of literature grew up around the goddesses [Isis and Nephthys], and the various words they chanted over the bier of the dead Osiris. He gives a number of examples of the works which he considers to be representative: the Book of Respirations, Lamentations of Isis and Nephthys, Festival Songs of Isis and Nephthys, and the Litanies of Seker. In the Kegan Paul edition of The Book of the Dead Budge does not entitle his own translation the Book of Respirations but Book of Breathings [Budge: The Book of the Dead xlvii-xlviii: 'a number of short religious works intended to be written upon funeral papyri had been composed...

scarab - in ancient Egyptian religion, important symbol in the form of the dung beetle (Scarabaeus sacer). This beetle may be seen on sunny days forming a ball of dung and rolling it over the sand to its burrow, where the ball is consumed in the following days. The Egyptians apparently shared the widespread belief that the beetle lays its eggs in this ball of dung and saw in the life cycle of the beetle a microcosm of the daily rebirth of the sun; the ancient sun-god Khepri was conceived as a great scarab beetle rolling the sun across the heavens. The scarab also became a symbol of the enduring human soul as well, hence its frequent appearance, oftenwith wings spread, in funerary art. Quantities of dead beetles have been discovered in burials of the earliest period, apparently to ensure the continued existence of the human soul; the later mummification of scarabs stems from the fact that they were sacred to Khepri at Heliopolis + Egyptian sacred green stone beetle-like scarabs, identified with Khepera, god of matter about to pass from inertness into life and of the dead body from which a spiritual body is about to burst forth, were placed over or instead of deceased's heart (Budge: The Book of the Dead) + scrape - to scratch with the finger-nails or claws.

skull + soul + sabhall (sal) (gael) - barn, granary + The "highest" and most subtle body and world in ancient Egyptian conception of the soul is the SAHU, or Spiritual Body. List of bodies: Khat or Kha (a fish) - the physical body, the corpse, something which is liable to decay, and can only be preserved by mummification. Ba (a human-headed bird) - the "soul". Connected with the ka, in whom or with whom it dwells. Ab (a vessel with ears as handles) - the "heart". Closely associated with the soul. Khaibit (a fan; an object which intercepts the light) - the "shadow"; Closely associated with the Ba and regarded as an integral portion of the human being. Akh, Khu, or Akhu (the ibis or phoenix) - the "spirit". Often mentioned in connection with the ba. The Khu cannot die, and dwells in the sahu (spiritual body). Sekhem - the power or form; generally the references are obscure. The incorporeal personification of the vital force of a man, dwelling in heaven among the Khus. Ren - the "name", which exists in heaven. Vital to a man on his journey through life and to the afterlife. In any psychically (as opposed to spiritually) based magical philosophy - and in this context the Egyptian system is no different - to know the secret name of a person or entity is to have power of that being. Sahu (a mummy and a seal) - the "spiritual body"; - forms the habitation of the soul; springs from the material body. Within it, all the mental and spiritual attributes of the natural body are united to its powers. A body which has obtained a degree of knowledge and power and has thus become incorruptible; it associates with the soul, and can ascend into heaven and dwell with the gods.

Sekhet-Hetep - the Elysian Fields of the Egyptians + The SAHU continues much of the Work begun by the KHU and adds to this other Work which the KHU could not have done. This "Spiritual Body" is, above all, an adept of self-regulated "movement" along the continuum of consciousness, becoming eventually able to experience states of consciousness which otherwise can only be given by the Neters. Foremost among these is what some schools call Kundalini, an "energy system" which, in the Egyptian metapsychology, is identified with the Goddess Sekhmet. By "raising Kundalini" -- which only the SAHU can do, although lower bodies counterfeit the experience -- the brain of the physical body is altered and much more of it comes into use, increasing the powers of all the bodies. Then the SAHU, if proper Work is done, can acquire SEKHEM (Power or Might). SEKHEM is the most formidable of the human potentials and allows its conscious possessor to function both in the human dimension and in the interaction with Neters in ways that would, if they were known, appear "superhuman" to non-initiates (Robert Masters) + In Egyptian mythology, Sekhmet (also spelt Sachmet, Sakhet, and Sakhmet), was originally the war goddess of Upper Egypt, although when the first Pharaoh of the 12th dynasty moved the capital of Egypt to Memphis, her cult centre moved as well. As Lower Egypt had been conquered by Upper Egypt, Sekhmet was seen as the more vicious of the two war goddesses, the other, Bast, being the war goddess for Lower Egypt. Consequently it was Sekhmet who was seen as the avenger of wrongs, and scarlet lady, a reference to blood. As the one with blood-lust, she was also seen as ruling over menstruation.

Pepi II - the last ruler of Egypt's 6th Dynasty, and in fact the last significant ruler of the Old Kingdom. We are told that his reign of possibly 94 (some Egyptologist believe 64) years was the longest in ancient Egyptian history. Budge's Book of the Dead LXIII quotes the pyramid text of King Pepi: "If the name of {NUT or OSIRIS} flourisheth.... the name of this Pepi Nefer-ka-Ra shall flourish, and this his pyramid shall flourish, and this his building shall flourish for ever" + Beppe (it) - diminutive of Joseph.
