INTRODUCTION Lately, I have received a number of requests from individuals who are currently inmates in either the State or Federal correctional institutions asking for help and guidance in relation to the magico-religious spiritual tradition of Afro-Brazilian Quimbanda. When I start to receive multiple letters of requests on the same subject, it is time to write up what I know so that I can, I hope, help as many people as possible. All of the following rituals and ceremonies should be followed exactly as they are presented here in this book if you want to experience the spiritual benefits of the AfroBrazilian religious tradition known as Quimbanda. I hope that your spiritual journey into the religious mysteries of Quimbanda will be as enjoyable and positive as they have been for me over the past years. It is my hope that this book will become an informational source for inmates who have a sincere desire to study and embark into the sacred world of the Afro-Brazilian religious tradition known as Quimbanda. This book is the first in a series of volumes that were specifically written for individuals who are now and are presently incarcerated. The information has been divided among various volumes because the information is very thorough and extensive. This book offers the reader with a rich source of information that can assist you to begin your sacred spiritual journey. I believe that an individual must find a particular spiritual path and religious philosophy which is comfortable for you. There are many paths and roads to the Sacred and to the Divine.

RELIGIOUS TRADITIONS OF THE AMERICAN CANDOMBLE CHURCH The following religious book was written for the initiates of the Congregation of the American Candomble Church. In the year 2003, the Casa Montenegro Spiritual Temple was formally organized into the American Candomble Church to preserve the unique and historical religious traditions of the mysteries of the Afro-Brazilian Candomble De Congo (Orixa mysteries) religious tradition and the Afro-Brazilian Quimbanda religious tradition that have been uniquely practiced by the De Bourbon-Montenegro Family of Brazil and have successfully survived for more than 148 years. All books written and published by the American Candomble Church for its religious clergy and religious Congregation are considered sacred and holy and that the religious doctrine and religious theology have only been made possible through the Divine Intercession of Nzambi and the Holy Quimbanda Trinity. In our sacred teachings and religious doctrines, the American Candomble Church recognizes that we are not the only religious group of practitioners of the Quimbanda religious tradition. The American Candomble Church also acknowledges that there are many religious variations of the Quimbanda religious tradition that presently exist and that are practiced throughout the world, but we believe that we are Nzambis chosen people. The American Candomble Church believes that our particular historical religious traditions have been ordained by Nzambi are unique and it has evolved into the most orthodox Congo derived gnostic religious tradition in its truest and purest form of the Quimbanda religious practice as brought to Earth by Nzambi, the God of Heaven. The initiates and religious Congregation of the American Candomble Church believe that Nzambi has chosen our Church and our particular Quimbanda religious tradition to speak directly through the Prophets of our Church and to the religious clergy of the American Candomble Church to deliver the Divine Word of Nzambi to his children here on Earth. The American Candomble Church believes that there is no God but Nzambi, the Divine Heavenly Creator of the Heavens and the Earth, the Sacred Breath which gave the Universe life. Let all on Earth bow down to Him for He is the Lord our God, and proclaim that Nzambi is the Lord of Lords and there is no other. For all of these historical reasons, the religious clergy and the religious Congregation of the American Candomble Church believe that our sacred and holy religious traditions have been ordained by Nzambi (God) and our "Church" will continue to grow old and survive into the 21st Century and even beyond. The religious theology and religious doctrine of the Prophets of the American Candomble Church has been confirmed by divine religious law that we are Nzambis chosen people.

AN INTRODUCTION TO BRAZILIAN QUIMBANDA The historical roots of the present day Quimbanda religious tradition are distinctly African. The great African slave trade that lasted from 1514 - 1866 brought a lasting African cultural presence to Brazil and to the Americas. Quimbanda is an Afro-Brazilian religion practiced primarily in the urban city centers of Brazil. Quimbanda practices are typically associated with prayers and rituals associated with a mixture of various forms of spirituality. Before and even after the African diaspora, the present day religious faith of Quimbanda merged with other religious traditions and it is a mixture of ancient European Necromancy and Sorcery, Congo religious traditions, indigenous native Indian beliefs from the Amazon Rain Forest, European Spiritualism and the Jewish Kabbalistic magical religious tradition. Over the course of 500 years of shaping in the New World, the Quimbanda faith, through spiritual evolution has emerged and become a very distinct religious belief that is widely accepted as a legitimate religious tradition.Although distinctly different from its original religious practice which had its roots in the African Congo, the religious concept is identical in terms of religious structure and ritual practice. The word Quimbanda (Kimbanda) actually comes from the African Bantu word meaning healer or shaman. Quimbanda also refers to "the one who communicates with the beyond". The Quimbanda magico-religious tradition is the most powerful Congo magical practice found in the New World and is also known and revered as perhaps being the most dynamic, complicated and the most powerful forms of African magico-religious practices found in Latin America. Quimbanda was originally contained under the Afro-Brazilian religious tradition of Macumba. In the Mid-20th Century, Macumba split into two religions: Quimbanda and Umbanda. Umbanda represented the more popular with many Christian elements of Macumba, while Quimbanda retained the distinctively African traits. Quimbanda has continued to distinguish itself as a religion, while resisting many, but not all of the Catholic and French Spiritism influences that have penetrated Umbanda and other Afro-Brazilian religions. The Quimbanda religion was first brought to the United States in the 1920s by the De Bourbon-Montenegro Family who have a long history and involvement with traditional Afro-Brazilian religions since the year 1864. The Quimbanda religion has been increasing in popularity in recent years with new converts and practitioners from all around the world and from every socio-economic and ethnic walk of life. The reason for its rise in popularity is that the religious philosophy and spiritual practice of the Quimbanda religion answers questions to the meaning of life and it also quickly resolves through spirituality the problems associated with our everyday life. The rituals of Quimbanda spiritualism gives individuals a sense of control over their lives through spiritual self-empowerment to believe in themselves and their spiritual birth destiny.

Religious practitioners of the Quimbanda religion become aware of the great power and mysteries found within nature and their spiritual surroundings. Through a series of progressive initiation rites associated with the Quimbanda religious faith, individuals become responsible individuals and have a greater respect for the environment and the Universal Mysteries of God. In the year 2003, Carlos Antonio De Bourbon-Galdiano-Montenegro founded the first legal church of Afro-Brazilian religious traditions in the United States, the American Candomble Church. The American Candomble Church was founded to establish a religious community and cultural center for the practice of the Afro-Brazilian religious faiths of Candomble De Congo and Quimbanda. The Quimbanda religious tradition and its powerful spiritual philosophy are no longer confined to Brazil and religious practitioners can be found in just about every country of the World.

THE QUIMBANDA RELIGIOUS PHILOSOPHY The Quimbanda religious tradition is monotheistic. Monotheism is the belief in the existence of one Supreme God. Religious initiates of the Quimbanda religion refer to him as Nzambi or Nzambi Mpungu, "Almighty God of the Great Celestial Mysteries and the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth". In the Quimbanda religious tradition, God is also referred to as Nzambi Ntoto. In the religious context of our theology, the word Nzambi Ntoto means "God Who touched and walked the Earth". The religious initiates of Quimbanda also refer to God as Ndala Karitanga (God who created Himself) and Sa Kalunga (Lord Endless, Infinite and Supreme God), after having created the world and everything in it. Although many religious practitioners of Quimbanda would consider its religious philosophy as monotheistic, there are many elements of pantheism which have been incorporated within the confines of the belief of one true God. Pantheism is the view that the Universe (Nature) and God are identical and that the essence of God is found within the Cosmos as an all-encompassing unity and the sacredness of Nature. There has been in recent years much debate and confusion about the Quimbanda religion as being polytheistic, but it is not. It is difficult to delineate from notions such as pantheism and monotheism. The confusion comes from the lack of understanding between the concepts of the term worship and the term veneration. Worship is an act of religious devotion usually directed to one or more deities. Veneration is a special act of honoring a saint: a dead person who has been identified as singular in the traditions of the religion. In the world of Quimbanda, we worship God and venerate the deities or spirits (Nkisi). Catholics venerate the saints, (among them Mary), as human beings who had remarkable qualities, lived their faith in God to the extreme and are believed to be capable of interceding in the process of salvation for others; however, Catholics do not worship them as gods. There are other examples of monotheistic religions such as Christianity which embrace the concepts of a plurality of the divine; for example, the Trinity, in which God is one being in three eternal persons (the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit). Additionally, most Christian churches teach Jesus to be two natures (divine and human), each possessing the full attributes of that nature, without mixture or intermingling of those attributes. Although there can be found in the African continent as well as many other places of the world the belief in polytheistic religious beliefs and practices, the concept of monotheism in the ancient African continent has existed for over 8500 years and its concept is not new. The practice of monotheism in Africa predates the birth of Christianity.

Most of the fear and misunderstanding about the Quimbanda and Candomble religious traditions come from individuals who have a lack of understanding about the religious philosophy of African cultures and their sacred traditions. Although we often define those spiritual entities venerated and associated with the Quimbanda religious tradition as deities, they are not. The word deity for those practicing traditional Quimbanda at the American Candomble Church simply means and refers to an elevated spirit which can be petitioned to intercede on our behalf directly to God and assist us in the process of the spiritual elevation and the evolution of our soul. This concept is the same as the veneration of the Saints by Roman Catholics. There is only one true God in the Quimbanda religious philosophy and we call him Nzambi, the "Father and Creator of the Heavens and the Earth", the "Creator of all that is Seen and Unseen".

THE DEITIES AND THE SPIRITS OF THE QUIMBANDA PANTHEON If you are going to have success in using the spiritual principles of this book as well as many of my other books written about Quimbanda and Candomble De Congo religious traditions, it is important for you to understand the religious concept and spiritual function of the deities and the spirits of the powerful Quimbanda pantheon. By understanding the spiritual concept of the Quimbanda magico-religious system you will be able see very fast and spectacular results in your spiritual requests. Although there are various forms of traditional Brazilian Quimbanda practiced throughout Brazil and the world, and each with its own religious views about how the religion should be practiced and how the Quimbanda deities and spirits should be organized, I will present to you in this book the magico-religious system and religious philosophy as practiced by the members of the American Candomble Church. It has been estimated that there are over 65,000 Quimbanda religious temples in present day Brazil. Quimbanda temples are called Terreiro (backyard) or Tenda (tent). In Brazil each of the Quimbanda temples are autonomous religious organizations that focus around a central spiritual leader. The spiritual leader of the traditional Quimbanda temple is called Tata Nganga or Pai De Santo. Both words meaning Father of the Mysteries of the Spirits. The American Candomble Church is the first and only known legal religious organization in the United States that exists in the world that has been formally organized and structured with members from all around the world and from every walk of life. This book will only explore the spiritual mysteries of The Seven Lesser Quimbanda Kingdoms of the deity more commonly known as Exu. The Quimbanda religious philosophy believes that the Universe and Earth are divided into Seven Kingdoms or spiritual realms. Each of these spiritual realms has been appointed with spiritual guardians by Nzambi. These deities were placed there by Nzambi to govern over these realms where these spirits reside. Each of the Seven Quimbanda kingdoms deals with various aspects of how mankind relates to the spirits as found in nature. The Quimbanda concept is very complex, but I will try to explain it in a simple comprehendible manner for the purpose of this book the spiritual principles and sacred theology of the Quimbanda religious tradition of the American Candomble Church.
11

The Quimbanda pantheon of deities and spirits is composed of seven (7) outer Quimbanda Kingdoms and seven (7) inner Quimbanda Kingdoms. These sacred kingdoms are known as, The Greater Quimbanda Kingdoms and The Lesser Kingdoms. The realm of Heaven where Nzambi resides is not considered a category of one of the Quimbanda Kingdoms because he is the Creator and it is only through his Divine Grace that all of the outer and inner kingdoms exist. In the Quimbanda religious system, Nzambi is considered masculine but can create duality in his work and in his sacred creations. The first three (3) Kingdoms of the Quimbanda deities are more commonly known as the Quimbanda Trinity. The Quimbanda Trinity is composed of the three deities, Exu Maioral, Exu Rei and Maria Padilla Reina. Together these three powerful spiritual forces govern the great cosmos and the universal laws of the Earth for Nzambi. That is why the religious practitioners of the Quimbanda religion venerate these three deities. The veneration of the Quimbanda Trinity is a central spiritual belief of our faith. Religious practitioners of Quimbanda believe that the deities of the Quimbanda pantheon were placed there by Nzambi to watch over the Universe and over the actions of mankind. Within the realm of the outer confines of the Kingdoms of the Quimbanda Trinity there are found the mysteries of the inner The Seven Greater Quimbanda Kingdoms and The Seven Lesser Quimbanda Kingdoms. The Seven Lesser Quimbanda Kingdoms are governed by and ruled over by the Quimbanda deities of King, Exu Rei and the Queen, Maria Padilla Reina. The deity Queen, Maria Padilla Reina is also known as Pomba Gira by the religious practitioners of the Quimbanda religious faith. The deities King, Exu Rei and the Queen, Maria Padilla Reina are believed to have seven different spiritual paths which are split among The Seven Lesser Quimbanda Kingdoms. Each of The Seven Lesser Quimbanda Kingdoms is governed over by a distinct spiritual path of the deities, King Exu Rei and the Queen, Maria Padilla Reina. Within each of The Seven Lesser Quimbanda Kingdoms, there are 9 Chief Guardian Spirits of Exu and Pombagiras. These Chief Guardian Spirits of Exu and Pombagiras are there to assist the king and the queen of each one of The Seven Lesser Quimbanda Kingdoms. Each one of these Chief Guardian Spirits of Exu and Pombagiras are associated with a specific spiritual task and assignment to spiritually assist mankind.

12

These Exu and Pombagira spirits operate under the direct command of the King (EXU) and Queen (REINA) that govern a particular Quimbanda Kingdom. Although there are many different individual Exus and Pombagira spirits represented within the confines of the The Seven Lesser Quimbanda Kingdoms, it is believed that there exist 121 different distinct Exus and 121 different distinct Pombagiras also found within the confines of The Seven Lesser Quimbanda Kingdoms. This belief is not shared by all traditional Quimbanda temples, but this is the religious philosophy of the American Candomble Church. In the following explanation of The Seven Greater Quimbanda Kingdoms and The Seven Lesser Quimbanda Kingdoms, the word deity refers to a highly evolved spiritual force that Nzambi placed in charge of a particular Quimbanda Kingdom and the word spirit (Nkisi) refers to a spiritual force that is submissive to the deity spirits. In both cases, both forces dominate and have a powerful control and influence over the destiny of human beings. Although the Quimbanda religious tradition believes that these spiritual entities have a great impact and influence on the lives and destiny of all human beings, we also believe that Nzambi at the moment of the Divine Act of Creation gave human beings the ultimate divine gift which is freedom of choice and the freedom to decide what path we should take in this life. This important concept is one of the Seven Principles of the Quimbanda Universal Cosmic Laws. In the Quimbanda religious tradition there is no right and there is no wrong. There are only consequences that result because of our choices and from our decisions. The Quimbanda spirits and deities were placed here by Nzambi to assist mankind with whatever decisions that we may chose and to spiritually assist us in manifesting our desires. That is why the Quimbanda religious tradition is centered on the veneration of the spiritual deity known as Exu. Exu is the Divine Messenger of the Crossroads of life. When we decide to make a decision, Exu is always there present reminding us that there will be consequences to our actions because we have freedom of choice. The crossroads of life represent the many consequences or paths that may come our way because of our choices and because we have freedom of choice. The religious practitioners of the Quimbanda religious tradition believe that the spiritual concept of freedom of choice is a Divine Privilege bestowed upon mankind by Nzambi. Freedom of choice is not a right; it is a gift from God.

THE FIRST GREATER QUIMBANDA KINGDOM Ruled over by the deity, EXU MAIORAL - Governs the Astral World, the Archangel Metatron, the Seven Archangels (Archangel Michael, Archangel Raphael, Archangel Gabriel, Archangel Uriel, Archangel Anael, Archangel Zerachiel, Archangel Raziel) & the Astral Spirits of the Cosmos.

14

THE SECOND GREATER QUIMBANDA KINGDOM Ruled over by the deity, EXU REI - Governs the Earth & the Underworld with Maria Padilla Reina. Exu manifests and encompasses male sexuality, fertility and strength. The deity of the Crossroads and the Emperor of the Constellations.

15

THE THIRD GREATER QUIMBANDA KINGDOM Ruled over by the deity, MARIA PADILLA REINA (POMBA GIRA) - Governs over human emotions and desires with Exu Rei. Pomba Gira is viewed as the consort of Exu Rei. Pomba Gira represents female beauty, sexuality, and desire. Pomba Gira is viewed as a beautiful woman who is insatiable. She is venerated with great respect and care, as her worshippers concede that her wrath can be firm and strong. Pomba Gira is often invoked by those who seek aid in matters of the heart and love. The deity of the Crossroads,T-Roads and Empress of the Seven Planets. Within the Third Greater Quimbanda Kingdom there are also many paths of the female spirit known as Pomba Gira which can also manifest within the realms of the Seven Lesser Quimbanda Kingdoms.

16

THE FOURTH GREATER QUIMBANDA KINGDOM Ruled over by the AJE SPIRITS - The four (4) Elements (Air, Fire, Earth, Water) & the fifth (5) Element of Void (Spirit). The Fourth Greater Quimbanda Kingdom is also ruled over by Iyami Oxorong, a powerful witch and the Aje Spirits. The Aje spirits are the daughters of Iyami Oxorong. The Aje Spirits are invisible spiritual entities that coexist with humans here on Earth. It is believed that the Aje Spirits are powerful "witches" that control all aspects of human destiny including such things as happiness, wealth, love, health and personal relationships. It is also believed that if an individual does not make a spiritual peace and truce with the powerful Aje Spirits that they can cause great harm and bring about great tragedy to all human beings. The Aje Spirits were here before the first man and first woman appeared on this Earth. Since the time that man and woman first appeared here on Earth, the Aje Spirits have been in spiritual competition with humans and historically have many of times tried to eliminate all life of mankind through such negative acts as causing famines, disease and even natural catastrophes and disasters such as floods, tornadoes and earthquakes.

17

THE FIFTH GREATER QUIMBANDA KINGDOM Ruled over by the EGGUN SPIRITS - (Ancestors) & Spirit Guides (Preto Velhos) The Eggun Spirits are our blood related ancestors. Practitioners of the Quimbanda religious tradition venerate the ancestors. The veneration of these ancestor spirits is not a religion in and of itself, but a facet of Quimbanda religious expression which recognizes an element beyond human control. This form of veneration is at the core of all of the religious practices in Afro-Brazilian spiritualism. The basis of ancestor verneration seems to stem from two principle spiritual ideas: (1) that "those who have gone before" have a continual and beneficent interest in the affairs of the living; and (2) more widespread, uneasiness, fear of the dead, with practices to placate them. The Eggun Spirits are a part of the Quimbanda pantheon of divinities. In the African Congo they are referred to as the Egungun. The Egungun represents the "collective spirit" of the ancestors. Through veneration of the ancestors, they assure a place for the dead among the living. It is their responsibility to compel the living to uphold the ethical standards of past generations. The spirits of thePreto Velhos (Old Black Ones) are spirits that represent the elders of the first African slaves to work on the sugarcane and coffee plantations of Brazil. These spirits are believed to assist the followers of the Quimbanda religious tradition with such things as spiritual protection and healing. These powerful entities are also venerated as powerful spirit guides for practitioners from various religious traditions of Afro-Brazilian Spiritualism.

18

THE SIXTH GREATER QUIMBANDA KINGDOM Ruled over by the CONGO SPIRITS (NKISI) - Govern the Physical World of Mankind & Spiritual World of the Dead. It must also be noted here that the nkisi spirits of the AfroCaribbean Congo religious practices of Palo Mayombe, Palo Monte and Kimbisa would be found within the sixth Quimbanda Kingdom. This information is important to know as there are many initiates from these Afro-Caribbean religious traditions that are currently being initiated into the mysteries of Afro-Brazilian Quimbanda. These spirits as found in the Caribbean would be; Kobayende - King of the dead, god of diseases. Centella Ndoki Gatekeeper between life and death. Gurunfinda - God of forest and herbs. Nkuyu - Deity of woods and roads, guidance and balance. Madre de Agua - Goddess of water and fertility. Mama Sholan Guengue - Goddess of richness and pleasures. Tiempo Viejo- God of divination and winds. Cabo Rondo - God of hunt and war. Siete Rayos - God of thunder and fire. Tiembla Tierra - Spirit of wisdom and justice. Zarabanda - Deity of work and strength. The American Candomble Church also houses the spiritual mysteries of the AfroCaribbean religious tradition of Palo Mayombe. Members of the American Candomble Church are given the opportunity to also initiate into the Afro-Caribbean Congo mysteries as part of their religious educational experience and are able to receive the Nkisi spirit mysteries (Traditional Palo Mayombe Ngangas) of Palo Mayombe. Although the two religious beliefs are distinctly different, they both share the same Congo regional and historical roots. It should also be noted that each of the Nkisi spirits has been assigned with a specific spiritual path of the spirit Exu (Lucero). The Exu spirits (Luceros) found within both religious traditions are submissive to the Nkisi spirits which govern the Sixth Greater Quimbanda Kingdom. It should also be noted that the religious practitioners of Quimbanda only venerate the Nkisi spirits while many times the religious practitioners of Afro-Caribbean derived Congo religious traditions such as Palo Mayombe, Palo Monte and Kimbisa worship the Nkisi spirits as gods. This is just one example of the difference between the two Congo derived religious beliefs. These are the primary Nkisis recognized at the American Candomble Church in the religious line of Quimbanda Congo spirits; Aluvai - Intermediary between humans and the other nkisis Nkosi Mukumbe (Roxi Mukumbe) - Nkisi of war and roads. Mutalamb (Kabila, Lambaranguange) - Hunter, lives in forests and mountains; deity of plentiful food. Gongobira - Young hunter and fisherman.
19

Katend - Knows the secrets of medicinal herbs. Zaze (Loango) - Delivers justice to humans. Kaviungo (Kavungo, Kafung, Kingongo) - God of health and death. Angor (male form) and Angoroma (female) - Assist the communication between humans and deities. Kitembo (Tempo) - Deity of weather and seasons. Matamba (Bamburussenda, Nunvurucemavula): Female warrior, commands the dead. Kisimbi (Samba) -The great mother, deity of fertility, of lakes and rivers. Kaitumb (Mikai, Kokueto) - Goddess of the sea. Karunga Njambi - Lives at the bottom of the ocean. Zumbarand - The eldest of the gods, connected to death. Wunje - The youngest of the Nkisis, represents the happiness of youth. Lemb Dil (Lembarenganga, Jakatamba, Kassut Lemb, Gangaiobanda) - Connected to the creation of the world.

The mysteries of the Orixas from the Candomble De Congo (Candomble De Angola) religious tradition are also found within the confines of the Sixth Quimbanda Kingdom. In the Candomble De Congo religious tradition, the Orixas are also considered Nkisi spirits. This is the primary difference between the Santeria religion and the Candomble De Congo religious tradition.

20

THE SEVENTH GREATER QUIMBANDA KINGDOM Ruled over by the CABOCLOS - The Guardians of the Earth that governs over the actions of mankind. The spirits of the Caboclos (Indian) are spirits that represent the native Indigenous peoples that the first African slaves encountered when they arrived in Brazil. These spirits are believed to assist the followers of the Quimbanda religious tradition with such things as spiritual protection and healing. These powerful entities are also venerated as powerful spirit guides for practitioners from various religious traditions of Afro-Brazilian Spiritualism. The American Candomble Church has expanded this religious regional meaning and now includes the spirits of Native Americans from North America.

AN INTRODUCTION TO BRAZILIAN QUIMBANDA RITUALS The magical spiritual offerings and sacred rituals of the Brazilian Quimbanda religious tradition are known for their fast results. Spiritual offerings and rituals are collectively known in the Portuguese language as trabalhos or in the English language as works. Spiritual offerings are also known in the African language as "Ebo". Because of the historical richness of the Quimbanda religion, the religious practitioners of this magicoreligious system draw on the energy found in nature as well as from the powers of the spirits and the deities of the Quimbanda pantheon. Rituals of Quimbanda are usually dedicated to one or more spirits. The rituals usually consist of drawing a symbolic spirit signature on the ground at a sacred location where the ritual offering will be left at. The location of the ritual offering will be determined by what type of Ebo is being cast and for what spirit is being invoked. It is believed that every location has a specific set of spiritual entities that govern that place. A typical Quimbanda ebo would be done at the crossroads when summoning the spirit Exu Tranca Ruas to close the roads of your enemies. The ebo usually consists of candles, cigars, cigarettes, a food offering, a liquor offering and other items that are sacred to the spirit that is being invoked to do the spiritual work. The majority of the ebo's of Quimbanda are performed during the late night hours because it is believed that the spirits manifest here on earth during those hours. After the ebo has been brought to the desired magical location, the religious practitioner will recite a prayer to the spirits making a spiritual petition to grant their requests. Rituals such as those for cleansing are usually also done at specific locations depending on the desired intent of the individual. Cleansing rituals usually involve the individual taking a series of herbal spiritual baths known as "amaci" and often times a ritual performed at the shrine of a particular spirit or deity at the Quimbanda Terreiro, Tenda or Munanzo. The word, Terreiro in the Portuguese language refers to a traditional Afro-Brazilian temple and the word, Munanzo is an African Congo word that refers to a house of worship.The priest or religious practitioner who performs these ebo's and rituals is called Quimbandeiro. The word Quimbandeiro is an African Congo word meaning healer or shaman.Because the Quimbanda religion believes in spiritual communication, often times an individual seeking spiritual advice will visit a Quimbandeiro to find out the answer of their questions. This is usually performed using a divination system known as "Buzios". The buzios are an AfroBrazilian divination system which uses a set of 16 cowrie shells to consult with the Quimbanda spirits. This divination method is also known as the chamalongo. An individual may also seek advice from a spiritual medium that can incorporate a specific spirit guide or Quimbanda spirit to receive spiritual remedies and spiritual solutions to their problems. The spiritual process by which an individual medium becomes possessed by the spirits is referred to as incorporating the spirit. The spirits and deities of the Quimbanda religious pantheon are divided into seven categories. These seven categories
29

are known as the THE SEVEN GREATER QUIMBANDA KINGDOMS and THE SEVEN LESSER QUIMBANDA KINGDOMS. Each one of the Seven Quimbanda Kingdoms is ruled over by a specific set of deities and spirits. Each of the Seven Quimbanda Kingdoms is associated with a specific location, such as the crossroads, cemetery, oceans, forest, mountains and churches. Within the Seven Quimbanda, the first three (3) Kingdoms of Quimbanda deities are more commonly known as the QUIMBANDA TRINITY. The Quimbanda Trinity is composed of the three deities, Exu Maioral, Exu Rei and Maria Padilla Reina. Together these three powerful spiritual forces govern the cosmos and the Earth for Nzambi. That is why the religious practitioners of the Quimbanda religion venerate these three deities. The veneration of the Quimbanda Trinity is a central spiritual belief of our faith. Religious practitioners of Quimbanda believe that the deities of the Quimbanda pantheon were placed there by Nzambi to watch over the Universe and over the actions of mankind. Within the realm of the outer confines of the Kingdoms of the Quimbanda Trinity there are found the mysteries of the inner Seven Lesser Quimbanda Kingdoms of the spirit Exu Rei and the spirit Maria Padilla Reina. THE SEVEN LESSER QUIMBANDA KINGDOMS are collectively ruled over by the deity Exu Rei and the female deity, Maria Padilla Reina. The deity Maria Padilla Reina is also known as Pomba Gira by the religious practitioners of the Quimbanda religious faith. The deity Exu Rei and the deity Maria Padilla Reina are believed to have seven different spiritual paths which are split among THE SEVEN LESSER QUIMBANDA KINGDOMS. Each of THE SEVEN LESSER QUIMBANDA KINGDOMS is governed over by a distinct spiritual path of the deity Exu Rei and the deity Maria Padilla Reina. Within each of the THE SEVEN LESSER QUIMBANDA KINGDOMS, there are 9 specific Chief Guardian Spirits of Exu and Pombagiras that are associated with a specific spiritual task and assignment to spiritually assist mankind. These Exu and Pombagira spirits operate under the direct command of the King (EXU) and Queen (REINA) that govern a particular Quimbanda Kingdom. Although there are many different individual Exus and Pombagira spirits represented within the confines of THE SEVEN LESSER QUIMBANDA KINGDOMS, it is believed that there exist only 121 different distinct Exus and 121 different distinct Pombagiras. This belief is not shared by all traditional Quimbanda temples and in some temples there could be hundreds.

AN EXPLANATION OF THE NGANGA OF THE BRAZILIAN QUIMBANDA RELIGIOUS TRADITION The spirits and deities of the Quimbanda religious tradition who make a pact with the living are collectively calledNkisi. The spirits come from the world of the dead and manifest through the Nganga. The Nganga is usually constructed inside of a cast iron cauldron or even inside of a clay pot. The Nganga is a miniature world and a doorway to the supernatural. The Nganga is the home of the Nkisi who rests inside waiting until summoned by its owner. The spirit can only manifest to its owner who has made an eternal pact with the world of the spirits of darkness that will last until the physical death of its owner. The purpose of the spirit is to serve and protect its master by any means necessary. In the world of the Quimbanda religious tradition, good and evil are looked upon equally and weighed the same. That is, there is no distinct classification between good and evil as the Western World believes. Where do these spirits come from and why are they here? There are spirits everywhere around us. Everything, location and thing found in this world and the cosmos contain some kind of spiritual energy and life force. There are pantheons of spiritual entities known as restless spirits that for some reason have not been able to pass through light dimensions and are trapped here inside of our world until they complete their task or their destiny. There are many different types of spiritual entities which exist and can be found in the mountains, forest, stones, trees, rivers, oceans and other far away locations such as the planets and the stars. Spirits are pure unseen and invisible energy that can manifest in our physical world. Through the use of ancient magical necromancy incantations and ancient magical sorcery formulas and preparations an individual can tap into this energy and stabilize it by undergoing a series of initiations into this mysterious world which will allow them to walk with authority and respect in the realm of the Quimbanda spirits. In the Quimbanda religious tradition of spirituality, initiations and pacts with the deities and the spirits are achieved through a series of very ancient initiations that link the physical dimension which we live in with the outer dimension, where the spirits reside. When an individual undergoes the ancient initiation process these invisible spiritual entities will then recognize the new initiate as one of their own and in return will give the individual access to the secret Cosmic Keys to unlock the forbidden doors of the Universal Occult Mysteries. The scientific study of how these invisible spirits manifest within our physical world through the use of ancient necromancy invocations is called Occult Physics. The science of Occult Physics is the study of an unknown or invisible matter and its motion through space time and all that derives from these, such as energy and force. More broadly, it is the general analysis of how these unseen invisible forces react in nature, conducted in order to understand how the world and universe behave. The techniques of how to capture spirits and to harness their strange and very powerful energy to do ones bidding is commonplace in many
31

ancient cultures, but the method by which an individual accomplished this varies from culture to culture and from region to region. In Western and European culture individuals initiated into the spiritual mysteries were many of times referred to as witches, warlocks and sorcerers. In the Quimbanda religious tradition they are known as Tata Nganga. The word Tata Nganga besides meaning the Father of the Mysteries of the Spirits also refers to an individual who possesses great "occult knowledge" and supernatural power to talk and to command the spirits of the dead for a variety of reasons such as to heal individuals from disease, sickness, power and protection against the evil eye and entities more commonly known as demons. The practice of working with the spirits of the dead is called necromancy. King Solomon, one of the greatest and most famous individuals of world biblical history was a sorcerer as well as a necromancer. After the African Diaspora to the New World, these initiations remained almost intact with a few variations and some syncretism and the incorporation of Indigenous Indian and Christian elements. Although in the Quimbanda religious tradition there are many deities and spirits represented within the confines of The Seven Greater Quimbanda Kingdoms and The Seven Lesser Quimbanda Kingdoms, each of the deities or spirits represented within these kingdoms has their own unique Nganga sacred to them. The mysteries of the Quimbanda Ngangas can only received by individuals through the act of initiation and ritual. Although individuals who are presently incarcerated would not be allowed to posses an nganga, the information was presented here in this book as a source of valuable information for individuals desiring to continue practicing the Quimbanda religious tradition when they have been released from jail.

HOW TO PREPARE A SPIRITUAL ALTAR FOR THE QUIMBANDA TRINITY This method of setting up a spiritual Quimbanda altar uses only the spiritual spirit signatures (Pontos Riscados) of the deities of the Quimbanda Trinity. INSTRUCTIONS The altar can be left uncovered or covered in an altar cloth. Cover the altar with an altar cloth made in the following colors: Red, Black and White. The altar cloth can be made in a combination of these three colors or you can make your own by sewing cloth material of the three separate colors together. If you will be doing this method, remember to always follow the sequence pattern of deity colors in the following order: Red cloth on the left side, Black cloth in the middle and White cloth on the right side. Draw and then paint each one of the three spiritual spirit signatures of the Quimbanda Trinity on a wood, cardboard or framed canvas. The dimensions of the wood, cardboard or framed canvas must be 21 inches x 21 inches in length and width. Following the color patterns as RED BACKGROUND COLORED CANVAS: Paint spirit signature using black paint. BLACK BACKGROUND COLORED CANVAS: Paint spirit signature using red paint. WHITE BACKGROUND COLORED CANVAS: Paint spirit signature using black paint. After you have finished painting the spirit signature images on the canvas and they have dried then place them up on the wall directly behind the Quimbanda Trinity altar.

IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO MAKE AN ALTAR AS ELABORATE AS THE ONE DESCRIBED ABOVE, YOU CAN LET YOUR SPIRIT BE YOUR GUIDE AND DESIGN IT HOWEVER YOU FEEL GIVES THE DEITIES GLORIFICATION. IF THE CORRECTIONAL FACILITY WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO HAVE AN ELABORATE ALTAR, YOU WILL HAVE TO GET CREATIVE AND USE YOUR IMAGINATION.

THE SACRED INITIATION MYSTERIES OF THE QUIMBANDA RELIGIOUS TRADITION The Afro-Brazilian religion of Quimbanda is a mystery religion or gnostic religious tradition. A mystery religion is any religion with an arcanum, or secret wisdom. In a mystery religion, an inner core of beliefs, practices, and the religion's true nature, are revealed only to those who have been initiated into its secrets. An individual who desires to become a formal member of a Quimbanda temple must first petition it. If the Quimbanda spirits and the religious hierarchy accept the petition then the individual will be introduced into the mysteries through a series of initiatory rites. Acceptance within a traditional Quimbanda temple is a privilege; not a right. An initiation creates a strong emotional bond and tie between temple members, and so an initiation request should not be considered lightly by either the aspirant or the temple; and, as always, the Tata Nganga has the final word. However, because of the deep bond initiation creates between the temple brothers and sisters, tradition dictates that the decision to accept a new person into the traditional Quimbanda temple must be unanimous. If only one person in the temple, can state good reason, and cannot be persuaded otherwise by other temple initiates, then entrance is denied to the Initiate. Again, the Tata Nganga has the final word in all things temple related. In the Quimbanda religious tradition, initiation is considered a rite of passage. In the context of ritual magic and esotericism, an initiation is considered to cause a fundamental process of change to begin within the person being initiated. There are various initiations associated with the Quimbanda religious tradition. In a traditional Quimbanda Temple it will take seven years to complete all of the sacred initiation in order to be called, Tata Nkisi Malongo or Tata Nganga (Male) or Mametu Nkisi (Female). The various steps of initiation are called degrees. Each degree is a step in that initiation process. There are seven degrees of initiation in the Quimbanda religious tradition. These seven degrees are known as the Seven Greater Quimbanda Mysteries. There are also many other initiations associated with the the Seven Greater Quimbanda Mysteries of the Quimbanda religious tradition, but these are considered minor initiations. These minor initiation rituals are called the Lesser Quimbanda Mysteries. The minor initiation rituals are found within the confines of the Seven Greater Quimbanda Mysteries. All initiation rituals are done at the temple or in nature. A Quimbanda temple is a place of worship and where initiated individuals come together as a family unit to venerate the vast pantheon of Quimbanda deities and spirits. These initiation rituals can take various years to complete. An individual who is incarcerated can for the purpose of this book self-initiate themselves in the Quimbanda religious tradition through following the rituals in the following pages. All of the following ceremonies are important initiations that an individual will undergo if they are considering becoming a part of a formal Quimbanda religious temple.
38

THE SEVEN QUIMBANDA RELIGIOUS SACRAMENTS / RELIGIOUS OBLIGATIONS All of the following are Congo names for the Seven Quimbanda Sacraments/ Religious Obligations that must be completed within the 7 year initiation period. These religious rituals and ceremonies are as follows; 1. MASSANGU 2. NGUDI MUTU 3. NGUEC BENGU KAMUTU 4. NGUEC KAMOXI MUVU 5. NGUEC KATTU MUVU 6. NGUEC KATUNU MUVU 7. NGUEC KASSAMB MUVU

39

FIRST DEGREE - BAPTISM INTO THE QUIMBANDA SPIRIT MYSTERIES The journey into the mysteries of Quimbanda religious tradition begins with a spiritual baptism. Baptism in the Quimbanda religion is known as MASSANGU. An individual desiring to become a member of a traditional Brazilian Quimbanda religious temple will be able to receive the divine protection of the powerful Quimbanda deities and spirits by receiving baptism into the spiritual Quimbanda mysteries. When an individual is baptized into the Quimbanda spiritual mysteries they are cleansed of all negativity and can then begin to continue with their spiritual journey into the mysteries of the spirits. It is through baptism that the Quimbanda spirits will begin to know the individual and their desired intent to become fully initiated at a traditional Afro-Brazilian Quimbanda temple. When an individual is baptized into the Quimbanda spiritual mysteries they are making a pledge and not a pact with the powerful deities of the Quimbanda Trinity and the spirits. The individual who is baptized receives the powerful Quimbanda spirit beads which are the banners of our Quimbanda faith. The sacred beads are called guias (spirit guides) in the Portuguese language. The new initiate will also receive the spirit mysteries of the Quimbanda Trinity. The three mysteries of the Quimbanda Trinity are received during the baptism ritual. Together, these three Quimbanda spirit ngangas correspond to each of the three deities of the Quimbanda Trinity. The deities which govern the Quimbanda Trinity are Exu Maioral, Exu Rei and Maria Padilla Reina.

40

SECOND DEGREE - RAYAMENTO / MUKASO INITIATION CEREMONY The Rayamento Initiation Ceremony links the new initiate to the World of the Quimbanda Spirits so that they will be better able to assist one with advancing in a positive direction in life. There are two parts of the Rayamento Initiation Ceremony. The first "Rayamento Initiation Ceremony" establishes a spiritual relationship between the Quimbanda spirits and the new initiate. The second "Rayamento Initiation Ceremony" will establish a spiritual connection to the mysteries with all of the deities and spirits of the Quimbanda spiritual pantheon. The second Rayamento Initiation Ceremony," which is traditionally done 21 days after the first Rayamento Initiation Ceremony gives the individual the ability to communicate and have command over the powerful Quimbanda deities and spirits. Both Rayamento Initiation Ceremonies give an individual great protection against all harmful energy that may be affecting the individual or that may come their way. The Rayamento Initiation Ceremony gives the individual the ability to leap over all obstacles of this life and will even protect an individual from untimely death. The Rayamento Initiation will make an individual invisible to any and all problems. This Rayamento Initiation opens the third eye of the individual. It is only after doing these very important initiation ceremonies that an individual is fully accepted into the traditional Quimbanda temple as a full-fledged member. The Rayamento Initiation Ceremony can save your life. Collectively, these two initiations are refered to as Mukaso. In the following book available from the American Candomble Church, you will be able to spiritually perform the powerful Mukaso initiation ceremony if you are presently incarcerated. The book is called; A RELIGIOUS HANDBOOK OF AFRO-BRAZILIAN SPIRITUALISM FOR THE INCARCERATED VOLUME TWO - THE MUKASO RELIGIOUS INITIATION RITE OF PASSAGE

41

THIRD DEGREE - AJE SPIRITS INITIATION CEREMONY The "Aje Spirits Initiation Ceremony" links our world to the invisible world of the Aje Spirits (Witches). The Aje Spirits control all aspects of human life such as wealth, health, prosperity, and our "spiritual birth destiny". If an individual does not undergo this initiation ceremony they will always be plagued with constant spiritual attacks by the Aje Spirits. By undergoing this initiation ceremony, an individual makes spiritual peace and establishes a lifelong relationship with the powerful Aje Spirits without any spiritual interference in order to be able to accomplish your desired goals in ones life.

42

FOURTH DEGREE - EGGUN SPIRITS INITIATION CEREMONY The Eggun Spirits Initiation Ceremony links the new initiate to the world of their ancestors. Without the permission, blessings and assistance of our ancestors we will never be able to realize all of the good things that life holds for us. By undergoing this initiation an individual establishes a relationship with the world of the ancestors so they will be better able to assist the individual with all the good things in life and to be able to overcome all difficulties that an individual may be faced with. It is important that an individual undergo this initiation ceremony so that they do not lose their way on their journey in this life.

43

FIFTH DEGREE - NGANGA INITIATION CEREMONY The Nganga Initiation Ceremony is one of the most important of all of the initiation ceremonies associated with a traditional Quimbanda temple. When an individual undergoes this initiation, they receive the actual spirit mysteries of a particular Quimbanda deity or spirit to work with. The mysteries of the Quimbanda spirits are usually received inside of an iron cauldron or clay pot. When a male individual receives this initiation they are then refered to as Tata Nganga. When a female individual receives this initiation they are then refered to as Mametu Nkisi or Mametu Nganga.

44

SIXTH DEGREE - THE OZAIN INITIATION CEREMONY The Congo Spirit Ozain Initiation Ceremony can only be received by men or by women who are no longer menstruating. The spirit Ozain is also refered to as the Katende in the Quimbanda religious tradition. This initiation ceremony gives the initiate the spiritual right to be able to work and invoke the powerful astral deities and spirits of the magical mysteries of the Quimbanda Spirit Ozain. After the individual undergoes this very important initiation ceremony where they will receive the actual "spirit mysteries". The mysteries are received in the form of a traditional Quimbanda Nganga. When an individual receives this initiation they are then refered to as Ozainista. An Ozainista Priest is an invaluable member of the magico-religious community.

45

SEVENTH DEGREE - TATA NKISI MALONGO INITIATION CEREMONY The last and final initiation that an individual can receive in a traditional Quimbanda religious tradition is the Tata Nkisi Malongo Initiation Ceremony. This initiation can only be received by men. When an individual receives this initiation and receives the spiritual Mysteries of Tata Nkisi Malongo they become one with the spiritual world and can command the powerful Quimbanda spirits Congo as well as all of the spirits found in nature. This ceremony gives the individual great supernatural knowledge and occult powers. An individual must complete this very important initiation ceremony if they want to venture outside of their Quimbanda temple to one day start their own.

46

QUIMBANDA INITIATIONS IN THE CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTION When I began writing this book, I did it completely under the spiritual guidance of the Quimbanda Trinity. Therefore, it is in my belief and the belief of the American Candomble Church that the following initiation rituals and ceremonies have been ordained by God and the Quimbanda Trinity. The following information is Sacred and Holy. It must be respected at all times. For the purpose of this book, I will present three methods of initiation rituals that can be legitimately used to connect oneself into the sacred mysteries of the Quimbanda religious tradition. Although the following methods of initiation are legitimate, an individual who desires to become a part of the mysteries of the Quimbanda religious tradition while they are incarcerated, should always upon leaving seek out a qualified Quimbanda Priest and temple to undergo the formal initiation process again to conform to the religious doctrine of that particular Quimbanda temple. By going through a formal Quimbanda initiation, the individual will be assured that they have had the same spiritual experience as those who have already done so in a formal setting outside of the State and Federal Correctional Institution. Because of the extensive information and material of this book, I will only present the ritual instructions for the Quimbanda Dedication Ceremony (Baptism/ MASSANGU), which is the first step of initiation for inmates desiring to enter into the sacred religious mysteries of Quimbanda. The Quimbanda Dedication Ceremony does not require any connection to any outside formal Quimbanda religious temple, nor does it require the individual to have any type of spiritual divination done for them prior to self-initiating themselves. This dedication ceremony is formally known as baptism into the Quimbanda spiritual mysteries.

47

METHOD ONE The incarcerated individual can join a formal Quimbanda temple on the outside that will be willing to sponsor them and to be spiritually responsible for the individual while they are incarcerated and also be willing to do all of the necessary spiritual offerings (Ebo) to the Quimbanda spirits in their name (the incarcerated individual). The incarcerated individual can formally join a traditional Quimbanda temple through mail correspondence with the elder priest. In this method, when the incarcerated individual leaves jail they must then immediately go to the same Quimbanda temple that assisted them while they were incarcerated and then formally be initiated without delay thanking the Quimbanda deities, spirits and the Tata Nganga or the Tata Nkisi Malongo for their spiritual assistance that they received while they were incarcerated. In Method One, the individual will still have to do one of the following two methods of initiation, but you will receive outside spiritual assistance from a formal Quimbanda temple that can only enhance your spiritual journey. The AMERICAN CANDOMBLE CHURCH has a religious educational outreach program available for individuals who are serious and who have a sincere desire to become a part of a formal Quimbanda religious temple.

METHOD TWO The incarcerated individual will be able to self initate themselves by following the Quimbanda Self dedication baptism ceremony that I will present in the following pages. By self initiation, the individual will be able to practice the religious doctrine with privacy. This particular initiation method requires only that the individual do the Quimbanda Dedication Ceremony which is the same or equal to the Quimbanda Baptism Ceremony at a formal Quimbanda religious temple.

49

METHOD THREE This particular initiation method requires that the individual do the Quimbanda Dedication Ceremony in front of a religious group that can be established within the legal guidelines of the correctional institution. The incarcerated individual can form a formal religious group with the permission of the Department of Corrections and the spiritual services and counseling department. By establishing a Quimbanda religious community within the correctional institution, individuals will be able to spiritually support one another with positive spiritual information to enrich and better our lives. It also must be remembered that those desiring to formally practice the Quimbanda religious tradition may be met with legal obstacles and institutional regulations and codes that may need to be overcome in order to be able to participate in the correctional institution. This may take some time to be able to demonstrate and convince to those in authority your genuine interest and commitment in participating the religious principles and theology of the Quimbanda religious tradition. The best place to first start with your request and petition to establish a formal group to practice the Quimbanda religious traditions would be with the Prison Chaplain. The Prison Chaplain will be able to direct you to right source and about how to go about it in the best possible manner. Individuals interested in learning more about the religion should also request that the prison library or chaplain library also include books about Afro-Brazilian religious traditions. Either way, although there may or may not be obstacles to formally practicing the Quimbanda religious tradition in your particular correctional facility, you must always do so within the legal guidelines of your specific correctional institution.

SOLITARY QUIMBANDA RELIGIOUS PRACTITIONER & FORMAL QUIMBANDA RELIGIOUS PRACTITIONER Traditionally, belonging to a formally organized temple was the only way to learn the Quimbanda religious tradition. Thankfully that is no longer the case. Thanks to a large number of people who have published books about various magical Congo religious traditions, it is now possible to learn the religious traditions of Afro-Brazilian spiritualism alone. The choice is up to you. The one thing that you should remember or keep in mind is that by practicing the Congo religion on your own you will not be able to learn as quickly as you would by participating in a formal Congo Munanzo. To assist you in deciding if you would like to practice the Quimbanda religious tradition by yourself or in a formal group, I have provided the following chart to better explain the differences between the two.

FORMAL QUIMBANDA RELIGIOUS PRACTITIONER = FQP SOLITARY QUIMBANDA RELIGIOUS PRACTITIONER = SQP

FQP - With a formal Quimbanda temple group, the rituals are performed by a group of people. SQP - As a solitary Quimbanda religious practitioner, you do everything yourself. FQP - The group meets regularly. SQP - The solitary Quimbanda religious practitioner can hold a ritual whenever you feel like it. FQP - A formal Quimbanda temple group draws on all its members to build a cone of power. SQP - A solitary Quimbanda religious practitioner has only their own power to draw on. FQP - A formal Quimbanda temple group has a wide variety of knowledge and specialties. SQP - A solitary Quimbanda religious practitioner has only their own knowledge and specialty. FQP - A formal Quimbanda temple has a structured set of religious doctrines. SQP - A solitary Quimbanda religious practitioner can change and be flexible with the religious doctrine.
51

SQP - A solitary Quimbanda religious ritual can be the barest minimum of words and actions. FQP - A formal Quimbanda temple must attune itself as one.

52

SELF-DEDICATION CEREMONY - BAPTISM INTO THE QUIMBANDA MYSTERIES The Dedication Ceremony for inmates would be the same as baptism into the Quimbanda mysteries at a formal temple.There are two methods that the individual can do this ritual, but that will depend on what your spiritual goals are. (1) The first method is for those who wish to practice the Quimbanda religious tradition on their own and in private. (2) The second method is for those who wish to practice the Quimbanda religious tradition in a formal religious group setting. The following are the complete ritual instructions for both methods of doing the Dedication Ceremony for individuals who are presently incarcerated. In method one, the process by which the individual completes this ritual will take seven days. Seven days represents the Seven Quimbanda Kingdoms. In method two, the process by which the individual completes this group ritual will take one day, while still invoking the deities and spirits of the Seven Quimbanda Kingdoms.

53

METHOD ONE - DEDICATION CEREMONY

PREPARATION If you are allowed to do so, the ritual should be done in front of the Quimbanda Trinity altar. The Quimbanda Trinity altar can be made from the instructions which I have provided in this book.

RITUAL ITEMS NEEDED One bar of Quimbanda Ritual Black Soap - If you are not able to get the Quimbanda Ritual Black Soap then you can use traditional African Black Soap known as Dudu-Osun. These soaps are available from most African general stores and companies that sell occult supplies. Quimbanda Baptism Beads - Not all correctional institutions allow inmates to possess and wear religious necklances such as rosaries, but if you are able to get permission then order a set from the American Candomble Church. If you are able to make the religious beads yourself then you should use the following bead patterns and colors. The stand of beads should be made long enough to hang just below your belly button. The reason for this is simply that we believe that the belly button is a sacred place on our bodies that is the doorway to the realm of Heaven because we were connected for 9 months by the umblical cord to our mothers lifeline which gave us life. The umblical cord represents how our soul traveled from Heaven to Earth and took root within our physical body. The sacred beads represent protection of our soul which resides within our physical bodies against negative spiritual energy. If you are not able to wear or have religious beads then you can still do the ritual without them. The ritual beads will follow a repeated color pattern of seven red beads, seven black beads and seven white beads or clear colored beads. The pattern should be repeated until your strand of religious beads hangs just below the belly button. Before doing the actual dedication ceremony, the individual must prepare three days before by spiritually fasting. Spiritually fasting for the purpose of this book means limited food portions at each meal to cleanse the body, mind and soul. The individual will also meditate on the mysteries of the Quimbanda Trinity and a genuine spiritual self reflection about the importance of the spiritual commitment which you will be entering into with the spiritual world of the Quimbanda deities and spirits.
54

If you are able to or wish to, you can also make an altar dedicated to the Quimbanda Trinity by the using the instructions that I have provided in this book. After three days of spiritual fasting then do the following ritual. This ritual can be started at any given hour before you take your daily shower.

THE CONCLUDING RITUAL OF THE SEVENTH DAY PLACE YOUR NEW SET OF QUIMBANDA BAPTISM INITIATION BEADS ON. REMEMBER ALWAYS TAKE A QUIMBANDA CLEANSING BATH USING THE BLACK SOAP AT THE CONCLUSION OF EACH RITUAL.

92

A FORMAL DEDICATION CEREMONY - BAPTISM INTO THE QUIMBANDA MYSTERIES If you are going to do this ceremony in a formal group your initiation ritual may have to wait until the next day after meeting with the group. Depending on the day and time that is set by the prison chaplain for your group to meet, the baptism ritual shower may have to wait until the next day after meeting with your group. Religious rituals for the purpose of this book may be somewhat flexible toyoure your schedule. BAPTISM RITUAL PREPARATION If you are allowed to do so, the ritual should be done in front of the Quimbanda Trinity altar. The Quimbanda Trinity altar can be made from the instructions which I have provided in this book. RITUAL ITEMS NEEDED: One bar of Quimbanda Ritual Black Soap - If you are not able to get the Quimbanda Ritual Black Soap then you can use traditional African Black Soap known as Dudu-Osun. These soaps are available from most African general stores and companies that sell occult supplies. Quimbanda Baptism Beads - Not all correctional institutions allow inmates to possess and wear religious necklaces such as rosaries, but if you are able to get permission then order at set from the American Candomble Church. If you are able to make the religious beads yourself then you should use the following bead patterns and colors. The stand of beads should be made long enough to hang just below your belly button. The reason for this is simply that we believe that the belly button is a sacred place on our bodies that is the doorway to the realm of Heaven because we were connected for 9 months by the umblical cord to our mothers lifeline which gave us life. The umblical cord represents how our soul traveled from Heaven to Earth and took root within our physical body. The sacred beads represent protection of our soul which resides within our physical bodies against negative spiritual energy. If you are not able to wear or posses religious beads then you can still do the ritual without them. The ritual beads will follow a repeated color pattern of seven red beads, seven black beads and seven white or clear colored beads. Before doing the actual dedication ceremony, the individual must prepare three days before by fasting. Fasting for the purpose of this book means limited food portions at each meal to cleanse the body, mind and soul. The individual will also meditate on the mysteries of the Quimbanda Trinity and a genuine spiritual self reflection about the importance of the spiritual commitment which you will be entering into with the spiritual world of the Quimbanda deities and spirits.
93

If you are able to or wish to, you can also make an altar dedicated to the Quimbanda Trinity by the using the instructions that I have provided in this book. After three days of spiritual fasting then do the following ritual. This ritual can be started at any given hour before you take your daily shower. The ritual can also be done the day before and then the bath taken the following day.

PROCEDURE: Draw the spirit signature which represents the Quimbanda Cross on the floor using white chalk. If your not able to have chalk then use a large piece of paper with the spirit signature on it. The spirit signature can also be made and drawn on top of a square piece of cloth using a red or black marker. By doing this method, the cloth is made into a permaneant ritual mat that can be used for future baptism initiation rituals. The spirit signature which represents the Quimbanda Cross should be large enough for the new initiate to stand in during the ritual ceremony. Prayer Group: Standing in front of the Quimbanda altar facing the East do and say the following: Using your right hand, make the sign of the Quimbanda Trinity Cross over your body. The Quimbanda Trinity sign of the Cross is made by touching the hand sequentially to the forehead, lower chest or navel area, and right shoulder,then left shoulder and then placing your hands together in a praying position and then kissing your hands three times.

SACRED DIVINATIONS OF THE QUIMBANDA RELIGIOUS TRADITION

180

In the Quimbanda religious tradition, divination is used by religious practitioners as a form of communication between the world of the living and the dead. Divination is the attempt to gain insight into a question or situation by way of a standardized process or ritual. It is an integral part of the Quimbanda religious tradition. If a distinction is to be made between divinations and fortune-telling, divination has a formal or ritual and often social character, usually in a religious context, as seen in traditional African medicine; while fortune-telling is a more everyday practice for personal purposes. Particular divination methods vary by culture and religion. Divination by cowrie seashells has been used for thousands of years by African Priests to determine the spiritual ailment and destiny of an individual. In the Quimbanda religious tradition, the initiated practitioners use several different distinct types of religious divinations. The first form of divination is by use of a set of 16 cowrie shells. The shells are believed to be the mouth piece of the Quimbanda deities and spirits which when interpreted will reveal the past, present and the future destiny of an individual. The divination of the seashells is known to Congo religion practitioners as Vititi Nkobo. In the Quimbanda religious tradition, seashell divination is also known as the Chamalongo. The word Chamalongo means cemetery. The literal translation of the Chamalongo is the divining by means of the spirits from the cemetery and of the spirit nganga. The second form of divination is by the use of four round coconut shells. This form of Quimbanda divination is called Vititi Nkandian. It is also referred to as reading the Chamalongos, but in a short abbreviated form by the Congo Priest. The interpretation of the Vititi Nkandian after throwing them after a ritual prayer will depend on how the four pieces of Chamalongo coconut shells land and to how they are positioned. The first pattern is called ALAFIA (four painted white sides facing up). When the pattern of Alafia falls, it means yes and the direct blessings from Nzambi and the Eggun Spirits from Heaven. The second pattern is called ELLIFE (Two painted white sides facing up and two black sides facing up). When Ellife falls, it means yes and the Congo Priest does not have to throw them again. The third pattern is called ITAWA (three painted white sides facing up and one black side facing up). When Itawa falls, it must be thrown again to ascertain a better response and answer. If the Congo Priest throws another Itawa, it means yes and is interpreted as a double oddu number (Melli). It would be translated as Itawa Melli. When a double oddu appears, it comes with twice the force and the client must listen very carefully to the interpretation of the oracle. If the second throw falls with two or four white sides up it means yes. If it falls with four black sides facing up or three black sides facing up it then means no. the fourth pattern is called OCANA SODDE (three black sides facing up and one painted white side facing up). When Ocana Sodde falls, it means no. the fifth pattern is called OYEKUN (four black sides facing up). When Oyekun falls it means no. Both Ocana
181

Sodde and Oyekun are extremely negative and the individual being consulted should seek a consultation oracle with the 16 Chamalongo Seashells of the Quimbanda Spirit Exu. If you are currently incarcerated, you will more than likely have to find other legal materials to replace and represent both the seashells and the coconut shells. For a complete ritual description of Quimbanda divination rituals for the incarcerated, please refer to the book, Quimbanda, Divination Rituals for the Incarcerated - Volume Three, The Chamalongo. If you are presently incarcerated you may want to seek a divination reading from a qualified Quimbandeiro Priest from an outside Quimbanda Temple.

THE QUIMBANDA SPIRIT SIGNATURES (PONTOS RISCADOS) In the Quimbanda magico-religious tradition, spirit signature sigils (a sacred mystical seal) are symbols connected to a set of ideas by which spirits or deities may be summoned to awareness and controlled. The spirit signature sigils connect the spirits to our earthly realm. In the Portuguese language they are called Pontos Riscados. The spirit signature sigils when used in the appropriate magical manner open up the doors to world of the supernatural. They are used in divinatory practices. The spirit signature sigil itself when drawn out on the ground or drawn on an object will call forth the spirit. The spirit signature sigil also serves as a physical focus through which the Quimbanda Priest achieves the desired state of mind. Spirit signature sigils represent the secret names of spirits and deities who manifest themselves differently to each magic practitioner. Once the Quimbanda Priest has summoned the spirit or deity he may control it, if necessary, by subjecting its sigil to fire or the use of a magical sword or machete. Spirit signature sigils can also serve as amulets, talismans, or meditation tools. Quimbanda spirit signature sigils may be of various signs, such as crosses, tridents, stars associated with different deities. Quimbanda Priests often times inscribe the spirit signature sigil on ceremonial ritual objects, candles or objects of silver, brass, gold, or glass. Such spirit signatures sigils are considered to be magically powerful. Quimbanda Priests also draw these very sacred and powerful spirit signature sigils directly on the ground in front of the spirit ngangas of the Quimbanda Spirits to invoke and to summon the deities to appear and to send them to do their bidding. The following Quimbanda spirit signature sigils (Pontos Riscados) can be used when doing the Quimbanda magical spells and rituals from this book and when making magical talismans and amulets.

FREEDOM OF RELIGION IN THE UNITED STATES In the United States, freedom of religion is a constitutionally guaranteed right provided in the religion clauses of the First Amendment. Freedom of religion is also closely associated with separation of church and state, a concept advocated by Thomas Jefferson. The United States Constitution addresses the issue of religion in two places: in the First Amendment, and the Article VI prohibition on religious tests as a condition for holding public office. The First Amendment prohibits the federal government from making a law "respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof" This provision was later expanded to state and local governments, through the Incorporation of the Fourteenth Amendment. Freedom of religion was first applied as a principle of government in the founding of the colony of Maryland, founded by the Catholic Lord Baltimore, in 1634. Fifteen years later (1649), the first enactment of religious liberty, the Maryland Toleration Act, drafted by Lord Baltimore, provided: "No person or persons...shall from henceforth be any waies troubled, molested or discountenanced for or in respect of his or her religion nor in the free exercise thereof." The Maryland Toleration Act was repealed with the assistance of Protestant assemblymen and a new law barring Catholics from openly practicing their religion was passed. In 1657, Lord Baltimore regained control after making a deal with the colony's Protestants, and in 1658 the Act was again passed by the colonial assembly. This time, it would last more than thirty years, until 1692, when after Maryland's Protestant Revolution of 1689, freedom of religion was again rescinded. In addition in 1704, an Act was passed "to prevent the growth of Popery in this Province", preventing Catholics from holding political office. Full religious toleration would not be restored in Maryland until the American Revolution, when Maryland's Charles Carroll of Carrollton signed the American Declaration of Independence. The First AmendmentIn the United States, the religious civil liberties are guaranteed by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution: Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. The "Establishment Clause," stating that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion," is generally read to prohibit the Federal government from establishing a national church ("religion") or excessively involving itself in religion, particularly to the benefit of one religion over another. Following the ratification of the
193

Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution and through the doctrine of incorporation, this restriction is held to be applicable to state governments as well. The "Free Exercise Clause" states that Congress cannot "prohibit the free exercise" of religious practices. The Supreme Court of the United States has consistently held, however, that the right to free exercise of religion is not absolute. For example, in the 1800s, some of the members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints traditionally practiced polygamy, yet in Reynolds v. United States (1879), the Supreme Court upheld the criminal conviction of one of these members under a federal law banning polygamy. The Court reasoned that to do otherwise would set precedent for a full range of religious beliefs including those as extreme as human sacrifice. The Court stated that "Laws are made for the government of actions, and while they cannot interfere with mere religious belief and opinions, they may with practices." For example, if one were part of a religion that believed in vampirism, the First Amendment would protect one's belief in vampirism, but not the practice. This principle has similarly been applied to those attempting to claim religious exemptions for smoking cannabis or, as in the case of Employment Division v. Smith (1990), the use of the hallucinogen peyote. Currently, peyote and ayahuasca are allowed by legal precedent if used in a religious ceremony; though cannabis is not. The Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees the religious civil rights. Whereas the First Amendment secures the free exercise of religion, section one of the Fourteenth Amendment prohibits discrimination, including on the basis of religion, by securing "the equal protection of the laws" for every person: All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. The affirmation or denial of specific religious beliefs had, in the past, been made into qualifications for public office; however, the United States Constitution states that the inauguration of a President may include an "affirmation" of the faithful execution of his duties rather than an "oath" to that effect this provision was included in order to respect the religious prerogatives of the Quakers, a Protestant Christian denomination that declines the swearing of oaths. The U.S. Constitution also provides that "No religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification of any Office or public Trust under the United States." As of 2007, seven states have language included in their constitutions that requires state office-holders to have particular religious beliefs. These states are Texas,
194

Massachusetts, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee. Some of these beliefs (or oaths) were historically required of jurors and witnesses in court. Even though they are still on the books, these provisions have been rendered unenforceable by U.S. Supreme Court decisions. Religious liberty has not prohibited states or the federal government from prohibiting or regulating certain behaviors; i.e. prostitution, gambling, alcohol and certain drugs, although some libertarians interpret religious freedom to extend to these behaviors. However, the United States Supreme Court has ruled that a right to privacy or a due process right does prevent the government from prohibiting adult access to birth control, pornography, and from outlawing sodomy between consenting adults and early trimester abortions. The "wall of separation"Thomas Jefferson wrote that the First Amendment erected a "wall of separation between church and state" likely borrowing the language from Roger Williams, founder of the First Baptist Church in America and the Colony of Rhode Island, who used the phrase in his 1644 book, The Bloody Tenent of Persecution. James Madison, often regarded as the "Father of the Bill of Rights", also often wrote of the "perfect separation","line of separation","strongly guarded as is the separation between religion and government in the Constitution of the United States",and "total separation of the church from the state". Controversy rages in the United States between those who wish to restrict government involvement with religious institutions and remove religious references from government institutions and property, and those who wish to loosen such prohibitions. Advocates for stronger separation of church and state emphasize the plurality of faiths and non-faiths in the country, and what they see as broad guarantees of the federal Constitution. Their opponents emphasize what they see as the largely Christian heritage and history of the nation (often citing the references to "Nature's God" and the "Creator" of men in the Declaration of Independence). Some more socially conservative Christian sects, such as the Christian Reconstructionist movement, oppose the concept of a "wall of separation" and prefer a closer relationship between church and state. Problems also arise in U.S. public schools concerning the teaching and display of religious issues. In various counties, school choice and school vouchers have been put forward as solutions to accommodate variety in beliefs and freedom of religion, by allowing individual school boards to choose between a secular, religious or multi-faith vocation, and allowing parents free choice among these schools. Critics of American voucher programs claim that they take funds away from public schools, and that the amount of funds given by vouchers is not enough to help many middle and working class parents.

195

U.S. judges often ordered alcoholic defendants to attend Alcoholics Anonymous or face imprisonment. However, in 1999, a federal appeals court ruled this unconstitutional because the A.A. program relies on submission to a "Higher Power". Thomas Jefferson also played a large role in the formation of freedom of religion. He created the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, which has since been incorporated into the Virginia State Constitution. Other statementsUnalienable rightsThe United States of America was established on foundational principles by the Declaration of Independence: We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; that, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; In 1944, a joint committee of the Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America and the Foreign Missions Conference of North America, formulated a Statement on Religious Liberty Religious Liberty shall be interpreted to include freedom to worship according to conscience and to bring up children in the faith of their parents; freedom for the individual to change his religion; freedom to preach, educate, publish and carry on missionary activities; and freedom to organise with others, and to acquire and hold property, for these purposes. Following increasing government involvement in religious matters, Congress passed the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act. A number of states then passed corresponding acts (e.g., Missouri passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act).

RELIGIOUS LEGAL STANDARDS & CASE LAW FOR THE INCARCERATED Issues of religious freedom for prisoners permeate contemporary correctional life, and arise in a wide variety of contexts. Two major federal statutes govern the legal standard to be applied to prisoner claim that correctional officials or employees have imposed substantial burdens on their right to religious freedom. Under both of them, prison officials or employees must show that such actions or prison rules are justified by a "compelling" governmental interest, and also show that the "least restrictive" means available to further that interest were utilized. Initial decisions under the first of these statutes, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), 42 U.S.C. Sec. 2000bb included: * Jewish prisoners are entitled to a kosher diet. Friedman v. South, 92 F.3d 989 (9th Cir. 1996) and Ashelman v. Wawrzaszek, 111 F.3d 674 (9th Cir. 1997). * Rastafarians have the right to possess and use marijuana. U.S. v. Bauer, 84 F.3d 1549, 1996 U.S. App. Lexis 11460 (9th Cir. 1996). * Jehovah's Witnesses and Muslim prisoners must be allowed to meet on the same terms as other prisoners, including meetings without an outside religious leader. Hyde v. Texas Dept. of Criminal Justice, 948 F.Supp. 625 (S.D. Tex. 1996). * A Muslim prisoner had a clearly established right not to handle pork in prison kitchen; kitchen supervisors were not entitled to qualified immunity for disciplining him when he refused. Hayes v. Long, 72 F.3d 70 (8th Cir. 1995). * A refusal to allow a Jewish or Muslim inmate to grow a beard violates the RFRA. Luckette v. Lewis, 883 F.Supp. 471 (D. Ariz. 1995); Lewis v. Scott, 910 F.Supp. 282 (E.D. Tex. 1995). * Fundamentalist Christian inmates have the right to receive publications that are "deeply offensive" to Catholics. Weir v. Nix, 890 F.Supp. 769 (S.D.Iowa 1995). * The denial of inmate's request to possess candles and incense and to perform Satanic rituals was a violation of his First Amendment right to religious freedom. Howard v. U.S., 864 F.Supp. 1019 (D. Colo. 1994). The Religious Freedom Restoration Act, however, was struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court in Boerne v. Flores, 521 U.S. 507 (1997) as unconstitutional as applied to the states. The Court found that the statute was beyond the powers of Congress under Sec. 5 of the Fourteenth Amendment. The Fourteenth Amendment "incorporates" the rights
197

contained in the First Amendment, and applies them to the states, and Sec. 5 of the Fourteenth Amendment gives Congress the power to enforce those rights against state and local government. The Court's reasoning, however, was that the scope of religious rights under the First Amendment are properly to be determined by itself, and that, in analyzing First Amendment claims before, it has ruled that neutral laws that impose burdens on religion must only be justified by a rational relationship to legitimate governmental interests. Congress could not, therefore, through legislation, adopt a more stringent test for such constitutional claims. Subsequent case law, however, indicates that the narrowness of the Supreme Court's ruling means that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act still applies to federal prisoners and correctional institutions, since Congress has more far- reaching powers over them. In response to the Supreme Court's decision, Congress passed the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act of 2000 (RLUIPA), 42 U.S.C. 2000cc, which relied explicitly on the Commerce Clause and Spending Clause of the Constitution, and the ability of Congress to put "strings" on programs receiving financial assistance, which most state, county, and local correctional institutions and detention facilities do, in one way or another. Rather than applying to all areas of state and federal law, as the RFRA did, the RLUIPA limits its scope to land-use regulation and religious exercise by institutionalized persons. Under Sec. 3 of the RLUIPA statute, "No government shall impose a substantial burden on the religious exercise of a person residing in or confined to an institution, as defined in section 2 of the Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act (42 U.S.C. 1997), even if the burden results from a rule of general applicability, unless the government demonstrates that imposition of the burden on that person--" "(1) is in furtherance of a compelling governmental interest; and "(2) is the least restrictive means of furthering that compelling governmental interest." Further, under Sec 4(b) of the statute "if a plaintiff produces prima facie evidence to support a claim alleging a violation of the Free Exercise Clause [...], the government shall bear the burden of persuasion on any element of the claim, except that the plaintiff shall bear the burden of persuasion on whether the law (including a regulation) or government practice that is challenged by the claim substantially burdens the plaintiff's exercise of religion." Before the enactment of these two statutes, prison officials who wanted to justify a policy, regulation, or other action that that imposed a burden on prisoner religious freedom rights only had to show a rational relationship to a legitimate penological interest, such as security, in order to prevail, a far easier burden to overcome.
198

The RLUIPA authorizes the award of attorneys' fees for its violation, and also states that it is not intended, in any way, to alter the application of the Prison Litigation Reform Act (PLRA), which, as shall be discussed in a later article in this series, has an impact both on what remedies are available in prisoner lawsuits concerning religious freedom, and procedural rules that prisoners must comply with to have their claims heard in the court. Some correctional defendants sued under the RLUIPA challenged the new statute also, raising various arguments, including the theory that the statute constituted an impermissible "establishment of religion" in violation of the First Amendment, by giving preferential treatment to prisoner rights claims which were based on religious concerns, rather than on other concerns. In a case filed by inmates belong to Satanist, Wicca (witchcraft), and white supremacist religions, a unanimous Supreme Court thoroughly rejected this argument. The Court noted that prison safety and security are "compelling" interests, which can justify the imposition of substantial burdens on prisoner religious freedom, and expressed the expectation that courts applying the statute will give "due deference" to the experience and expertise of prison and jail administrators. In the case, Cutter v. Wilkinson, No. 03-9877, 544 U.S. 709 (2005), three Ohio prisoners who stated that they are members of "nonmainstream religions," named the Satanist, Wicca (witchcraft or pagan), and Asatru (Norse heathen or neo- pagan) religions, and the Church of Jesus Christ Christian (associated with the white supremacist views of the Aryan Nation) claimed that state correctional officials violated the RLUIPA by failing to accommodate their religious exercise in a variety of ways. Specifically, they claimed that they were retaliated against and discriminated against for exercising their nontraditional religions, denied access to religious literature and denied the same opportunities for group worship that are granted to believers in other, mainstream, religions, as well as forbidding them to adhere to the dress and appearance mandates of their religions, and withholding religious ceremonial items that are substantially identical to those that the members of mainstream religions are allowed to possess. They also complained that they were not provided with a chaplain trained in their faith. The Supreme Court overturned a prior lower federal appeals court decision, holding that the RLUIPA did not, on its face, exceed the limits of permissible government accommodation of religious practices. The RLUIPA statute defines "religious exercise" fairly broadly to include "any exercise of religion, whether or not compelled by, or central to, a system of religious belief," removing a requirement, previously imposed by many courts, that plaintiff prisoners show that the restricted practice they complained about had to be one compulsory "central," according to the established tenets of a religion. The Court rejected the argument that the law improperly "advances" religion by providing greater protection to religious rights than to other constitutionally protected rights. It also pointed to the fact that the statute did not distinguish among bona fide religions, neither giving any
199

particular religious sect "privileged status," nor singling out any religion for "disadvantageous treatment." The Court's decision emphasized that it was addressing only the facial challenge that the defendants had presented to the constitutionality of the law, and not the application of the statute to the particular claims asserted by the prisoners, or whether the requested accommodations were outweighed by compelling security and safety interests. Additionally, for purposes of the appeal, both the sincerity of the prisoners' beliefs, and their religious nature, were assumed. In a footnote, the Court noted that any concerns that prison gangs use religious activity to conceal unlawful and violent conduct could be appropriately addressed by courts in specific cases by questioning whether a prisoner's "religiosity," asserted as the basis for a requested accommodation, is legitimate and sincere. While the "truth" of a religious belief is not open to question by the courts, the question of whether the prisoner's beliefs are sincerely held may be. The Court also pointed to the fact that the U.S. Bureau of Prisons, for more than ten years, has managed the largest correctional system in the country under the same "heightened scrutiny standard as RLUIPA without compromising prison security, public safety, or the constitutional rights of other prisoners," since the RFRA has widely been held to continue to apply to federal prisons. See, Kikumura v. Hurley, #99-1284, 242 F.3d 950 (10th Cir. 2001). As a result, the Court rejected the argument that "abusive prisoner litigation" under the RLUIPA would "overburden" the operation of state and local correctional facilities. A separate concurrence by Justice Thomas noted that the First Amendment only prohibited Congress from making laws "respecting an establishment of religion," i.e., an official governmental religion, and does not prohibit Congress from making laws which "respect" religion. While the Court's decision did not address the question of whether the RLUIPA exceeded the Spending clause powers of Congress, Thomas stated that the states' "voluntary acceptance" of the conditions imposed by Congress on the receipt of federal funds "undercuts Ohio's argument that Congress is encroaching on its turf." In addition to the Supreme Court's rejection of the "establishment of religion" attack on the RLUIPA statute, federal appeals courts have rejected various other constitutional attacks on the statute, including ruling that Congress, in passing the statute, did not exceed its powers under the spending clause of the Constitution, or violate the establishment of religion clause, or violate the rights of the states under the Tenth Amendment, the immunity of the states under the Eleventh Amendment, or the doctrine of separation of powers. See, for instance, Mayweathers v. Newland, #016505, 314 F.3d 1062 (9th Cir. 2002). In that case, the court held that Congress did not exceed its power under the Spending Clause to further policy objectives by conditioning the receipt of federal funds on compliance with federal mandates, including, in this case, compliance with the designated legal standard for prisoners' religious rights. It
200

noted that Congress has "great leeway" to determine which statutory aims "advance the general welfare," and that "protecting religious worship in institutions from substantial and illegitimate burdens does promote the general welfare." The court also found that the statute's conditions did "bear some relationship to the purpose of the federal spending," since "Congress has a strong interest in making certain that federal funds do not subsidize conduct that infringes individual liberties, such as the free practice of one's religion." Rejecting the argument that the statute somehow "usurps" the regulation of a "core state function" in violation of the Tenth Amendment (reserving to the states or the people those powers not expressly delegated to the federal government), the court acknowledged that "the prosecution and punishment of crime remains a basic police power," but found that the RLUIPA "does not regulate the operation of prisons." Under the RLUIPA, the court stated, "prison officials remain free to run their prisons as they see fit," but are prohibited from "unduly burdening inmates' free exercise of religion in the process." While Congress may not have the authority to "commandeer the management of state prisons," it does have the power to fix the terms upon which its allotments of money will be disbursed. "If states disagree with the requirements of RLUIPA," the court reasoned, "they remain free to forgo federal funding and opt out of its mandates." The court noted, in a footnote, that federal funding "comprises less than one percent of California's annual prison operating budget." The appeals court rejected the argument that the plaintiff prisoners' lawsuit against California state prison officials under RLUIPA was barred by Eleventh Amendment immunity. The Eleventh Amendment, the court found, prohibits lawsuits against the state itself. "This case, by contrast, involves a suit by citizens of California against officials of the state of California for prospective injunctive relief," and therefore "falls squarely within the Ex Parte Young exception to sovereign immunity and does not violate the Eleventh Amendment." Finally, the appeals court rejected the argument that the statute violates the principal of separation of powers. The correctional officials had argued that Congress, in passing the statute, was attempting to interfere with U.S. Supreme Court decisions interpreting the requirements of the First Amendment in the area of religion. The appeals court found that the RLUIPA "does not erroneously review or revise a specific ruling of the Supreme Court because the statute does not overturn the Court's constitutional interpretation," but rather "provides additional protection for religious worship," respecting that the Court's decisions "set only a constitutional floor-not a ceiling--for the protection of personal liberty." Indeed, the court found that the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Employment Division v. Smith, 494 U.S. 872 (1990), which held that laws general applicability that incidentally burden religious conduct do not offend the First Amendment, "explicitly left heightened legislative protection for religious worship to the political branches." Other decisions upholding the RLUIPA against various constitutional attacks include: Benning v. State of Georgia, No. 0410979, 2004 U.S. App. Lexis 24842 (11th Cir. 2004), Charles v. Verhagen, 348 F.3d 601 (7th Cir. 2003); Mayweathers v. Newland, 314 F.3d 1062 (9th Cir. 2002), and Madison v. Riter, 355 F.3d 310 (4th Cir. 2003). In theory, the less stringent "rational relationship to a legitimate penological interest" test could still apply to a prisoner's religious freedom lawsuit if they fail to raise an explicit claim under either the RFRA (in the case
201

of federal prisoners) or the RLUIPA (in the case of state prisoners). In such cases, prisoners might file a general First Amendment federal civil rights lawsuit under 42 U.S.C. Sec. 1983 or a direct constitutional claim under the First Amendment and Bivens v. Six Unknown Federal Narcotics Agents, #301, 403 U.S. 388 (1971) against individual federal correctional officials, while failing to rely on either of the statutes. At least one federal appeals court, however, has ruled that, in a pro se lawsuit filed by a prisoner over denial of access to a controversial religious text, the trial court should have, on its own, considered whether the prisoner had a claim under the RLUIPA, even though the prisoner did not refer to the statute in his complaint. The appeals court noted that complaints filed by prisoners who were acting as their own attorneys at the time are to be "liberally" construed, and that the courts should "apply the relevant law, regardless of whether the pro se litigant has identified it by name." Smith v. Johnson, No. 03-2014, 2006 U.S. App. Lexis 27178 (3rd Cir.). The court upheld summary judgment for the prison officials under the less stringent First Amendment legal standard, but ordered further proceedings on the possible statutory claim. The case involved a decision by the publication review committee of a Pennsylvania prison allegedly burdening a prisoner's ability to practice his religion of "Yoruba/Palero/Vodun" by denying him access to a religious text, two volumes of "El Libro," by Carlos Montenegro, a Palero priest. The committee disapproved receipt of the work as falling into a category of publications that "advocate, assist or are evidence of criminal activity or institution misconduct." In most litigation concerning religious freedom rights of prisoners and detainees, therefore, correctional officials must be prepared to show that their actions or policies arguably imposing a substantial burden on a prisoner's ability to exercise their sincerely held religious beliefs are both justified by an identified compelling governmental interest, and that the "least restrictive means" available is used to achieve that interest.

INTRODUCTION Lately, I have received a number of requests from individuals who are currently inmates in either the State or Federal correctional institutions asking for help and guidance in relation to the magico-religious spiritual tradition of Afro-Brazilian Quimbanda. When I start to receive multiple letters of requests on the same subject, it is time to write up what I know so that I can, I hope, help as many people as possible. All of the following rituals and ceremonies should be followed exactly as they are presented here in this book if you want to experience the spiritual benefits of the Afro-Brazilian religious tradition known as Quimbanda. I hope that your spiritual journey into the religious mysteries of Quimbanda will be as enjoyable and positive as they have been for me over the past years. It is my hope that this book will become an informational source for inmates who have a sincere desire to study and embark into the sacred world of the Afro-Brazilian religious tradition known as Quimbanda. This book is the first in a series of volumes that were specifically written for individuals who are now and are presently incarcerated. The information has been divided among various volumes because the information is very thorough and extensive. This book offers the reader with a rich source of information that can assist you to begin your sacred spiritual journey. I believe that an individual must find a particular spiritual path and religious philosophy which is comfortable for you. There are many paths and roads to the Sacred and to the Divine.

INTRODUCTION The following partial manuscript was taken from the original magical Grimoire of my Great Uncle, Chico Ita-Montenegro which is now in my possession. It is a translation from its original Portuguese version. Although the following manuscript is only a partial selection of the original manuscript from this very powerful book of shadows written by my uncle between 1880 and 1950, the magical formula on how to construct the Montenegro Quimbanda Magic Mirror is an invaluable artifact of the history of the occult, the supernatural and Latin American Spiritualism. If time permits and with the permission of the Quimbanda Trinity and of course the Spirit of Chico Ita-Montenegro, I may sometime in the future present the entire Grimoire to the occult world as a tribute and historical account of one mans legacy in the world of the Afro-Brazilian religious tradition known as Quimbanda and Latin American Sorcery. A sacred world shrouded in mystery, rich folklore and forgotten ancient magical mysteries to invoke and to awaken the power of the Universe. The following magical formula of how to prepare the Montenegro Quimbanda Magic Mirror and to give it life must be followed exactly how it was presented in the original Grimoire of Chico Ita-Montenegro. If it is not followed exactly and correctly, the results can be detrimental to your physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. My name is Carlos Antonio De Bourbon-Galdiano-Montenegro and I present to you in the following occult manuscript of my family, the cosmic keys to unlock the sacred door to the mysterious world and realm of the invisibles. This wonderful world of forbidden knowledge, I know too well. SARAVA CARLOS ANTONIO DE BOURBON-GALDIANO-MONTENEGRO May 15, 2011

INTRODUCTION In the year 1989, on a starry night, while silently meditating on the great mysteries in front of the altar of the Most Holy Quimbanda Trinity, there did appear to me a bright and illuminated light. As my eyes searched the brilliant light of the night, there did appear in front of me in full form and in full regalia the Highest of all Angels, the King of Kings, Exu Maioral. Without fear, I gazed upon the spectacular and amazing sight. As he stared into my eyes, He knew me. Exu Maioral, holding the Holy Book of Secret Truth and Knowledge in his left hand and the Divine Sword of Exu in his right hand, he then did Knight me and then placing upon my head the Divine Crown of Glory, the divine knowledge of the secret celestial mysteries of invocation to unlock the forbidden doors to where the Tree of Knowledge grows to deliver the Sacred Word of Nzambi and the Seven Quimbanda Kingdoms to His children here on Earth. All Glory and Honor to you, O Mighty King. Hail Exu Maioral for you are the Sacred Light which sets our souls on fire with the Glory of the Divine Grace of God. - Sarava The following Quimbanda ceremonial magic book is a complete ritual about how to invoke the powers of Divine Justice of the powerful Spirit Exu as delivered to me by the Highest of all Angels, Exu Maioral. All of the following sacred rituals and ceremonies should be followed exactly as they are presented here in this book if you want to experience the spiritual benefits of the Afro-Brazilian religious tradition known as Quimbanda. I hope that your spiritual journey into the religious mysteries of Quimbanda will be as enjoyable and positive as they have been for me over the past years. Children of Nzambi, I present to you, The Grand Quimbanda Ritual to Invoke the Spirits of Divine Justice THE DIVINE SWORD OF EXU.
