“The Ancient Wisdom is, in Africa, enshrined in a Brotherhood (a term used by them, but which embraces women as well). The Brotherhood they call Bonaabakulu abasekhemu might be translated as The Brotherhood of the Higher Ones of Egypt.
The Isanusi gives the grades of the Brotherhood as:
- The Pupil.
- The Disciple.
- The Brother.
- The Elder.
- The Master.
- Those who Know. (Isangoma).
Additionally, there are lay Disciples and lay Brothers.
“The Isanusi emphasize that the Isangoma, elevated though they are, represent the supreme development possible to humans on the physical plane.
“There are others, not of any Brotherhood, save the Brotherhood of All. They are called Abakulubantu (that is Supreme Ones or the Perfect Ones). These are ones for whom the necessity of rebirth has ceased; they dwell on earth in physical form by their own will and can retain or relinquish that form as they please,” partly reads The Theosophist of August 1927, p. 549-60).
Author Dom Pedro V in his book ‘The Quantum Vision of Simon Kimbangu: Kintuadi in 3D’ wrote “the African brotherhood Bonaabakulu Abasekhemu is considered the oldest and predate any traceable lineage of every other religious tradition on earth today.
“It goes back to approximately 3900 BC. The next closest tradition in terms of of age would be Vedic tradition of India, which based on the Rig Veda, could be traced back to about 1500 BC, and even the Vedic tradition would appear also to owe some of its spiritual science to Kamit or Nsemi “, wrote Dom Pedro V.https://books.google.mw/books?id=Jql8gymEI_kC&pg=PT42&lpg=PT42&dq=”Bonaabakulu+Abasekhemu”&source=bl&ots=Gv07nnhYIY&sig=hbSky-_h2esnk5UzV6Y-ObJoJzw&hl=en&sa=X&ei=PDjoVPqdD9XWaoOqgLAN&redir_esc=y#v=onepage&q=%22Bonaabakulu%20Abasekhemu%22&f=false
Bonaabakulu Abasekhemu is also re-written in Kikongo as Bana ba Nkulu abaSe N’semi hence: “Bona abakhulu base Khemu meaning We see or have seen (Bona) the great (Abakhulu) from KMT (Khemu) while an Elder is Mkhulu or Khulu.
In ancient Malawi the words Mbona and Bona came from -ona in Chichewa/Chinyanja meaning to see and KMT are abbreviations for Kumeta as in shaving mourners and initiation for a specific ethnic group and Kutema Mphini as in the incisions made for administering charms and herbs to the body.
Now Bana in Kikongo resembles ana in Chichewa which means children.
Bonaabakulu Abasekhemu” re-written in Kikongo as Bana ba Nkulu abaSe N’semi is explained in the book ‘The Quantum Vision of Simon Kimbangu: Kintuadi In 3D’ by Dom Pedro V.
The 1895 Kongo language dictionary defines Nsemi a maker of images, a sculptor & Nsema the creating, creation see sema”. https://archive.org/stream/dictionarygramma00bentuoft/dictionarygramma00bentuoft_djvu.txt
Besides wooden carvings other sacred things including masks are carved by the Great One according to some online websites explaining the spirit world as in mizimu of some ancient African kingdoms.
In ancient Malawi there was BONA and MBONA with -ona meaning TO SEE and CHOONADI meaning the TRUTH hence akunena zoona as in he or she speaks the Truth… When enlightened the RIGHT EYE PROTRUDES and sticks out as in SHINING (KUWALA) more than the left one representing DARKNESS (MDIMA).
The RIGHT EYE (KUMANJA) and MANJA is hands sticks out like this “Osiris” statue unlike the LEFT EYE (KUMANZERE). Mbona Ostiriza (the last Seer) as in MBONA from -ONA to see and TOMASI BONA also with -ONA as to see has a right protruding eye like a SNAKE (Njoka) and not a left protruding one like a GOAT (Mbuzi).
They call that MASOMPHENYA (VISION) and being able to see what is hidden in the DARK like an OWL (KADZIDZI), the night-bird so the NGANGA as in asing’anga African doctors and healers can also see the MIZIMU (SPIRITS) who are hidden and also the MIZIMU YAMAKOLO (ANCESTRAL SPIRITS).
Words are also spoken briefly as codes. For example when they said bowa muntengo (tree ear mushrooms which grow on dead wood or trees) it would mean those who have ears, listen.
Bowa is a mushroom and mutengo is in the tree so mushrooms in the tree. And those who have eyes “see” not with the two eyes we know but with your “other eyes”….this we call masomphenya (vision) to see even what is hidden in the dark like owls created by the Great Spirit who is God (Chauta, Namalenga, Mphambe).
According to Asar Imphotep in his blog, Kulu is also one of the words used for God in Africa with “Proto-Bantu /l/ was /d/, so it was KuDu.” What is interesting is that in Chichewa/Chinyanja Akuluakulu are the elders and mkulu is an elder hence sayings like akulu a mvula ya kale to mean the elders of old rains and mawu a akuluakulu akoma akagonera etc.
Then there is Gule Wamkulu as in the Great dance which is sacred and I don’t write about it since I’m ignorant and a child and there is the different Nguni’s Bonaabakulu Abasekhemu re-written in Kikongo as Bana ba Nkulu abaSe N’semi hence: “Bona abakhulu base Khemu meaning We see or have seen (Bona) the great (Abakhulu) from KMT (Khemu) while an Elder is Mkhulu or Khulu”- Nguni/Ngoni and the ancient god called KhuluKhulu” is some information that has been made available to this blog about their presence in ancient Egypt.
Like the Nguni/ Ngoni word Khulukhulu meaning “a grandparent of our great great-parents” then Akuluakulu amati is the great-great ones say.
And then there is something like “mawu a akulu akoma akagonera” (elders‟ words are always good advice) besides the popularMalawi proverb “Akulu ndi mdambo mozimira moto” (elders are fountains of wisdom that solve all problems).
In Malawi Bona and Mbona as in -ona also means to see and Akuluakulu means elders so Mbona was like a seer and some South Africans online explained that “the ancient god called KhuluKhulu has been distorted to be Nkulunkulu. Khulukhulu is a grandparent of great great-parents. “Bona abakhulu base Khemu means We see or have seen (Bona) the great (Abakhulu) from KMT (Khemu).
An Elder is Mkhulu or Khulu”- Nguni/Ngoni and since the words nsemi, sema and nsembe are different with Kikongo’s Nsemi meaning “maker of images” while -sema is to carve in Chichewa and nsembe offerings, I’m curious to know if such ancient African brotherhoods were connected to the ancient Nganga of Africa?
