The Emerald Tablets of Thoth (also titled The Emerald Tablets of Thoth-The-Atlantean (ISBN 0966531205) [1]) are a series of 15 emerald tablets that were created by the Ascended Master Thoth to chronicle his journeys from the times of Atlantis until the times of Khem (Egypt), and to reveal to the reader various hidden magickal treatises and secrets. They have been found at the request of the Great White Lodge in 1925, and translated into English by Dr. Doreal, who had a connection with the Great White Brotherhood, the priesthood that still operated then at the Great Pyramid. The soul of Thoth is said to have passed into the bodies of men in the manner described in The Emerald Tablets of Thoth, a book of record and occult wisdom which he wrote and left in the Pyramid for those of a future Age of Light.[2]

The Actual Tablets

Of the actual physical tablets, of which there are twelve (and only of which 10 were translated into 13 sections, at first, with the last two supplemental sections being translated and added much later), Dr. Doreal describes them as thus:

The writings of Thoth consist of twelve Tablets of Emerald Green formed from a substance created through alchemical transmutation. They are imperishable, resistant to all elements, corrosion and acids. In effect, the atomic and cellular structure is fixed, and no change can take place, thus violating the material law of ionization.

Upon them are engraved characters in the Ancient Atlantean language; characters which respond to the attuned thought waves of the reader and which release much more wisdom and information than the characters do when merely deciphered. The Tablets are fastened together with hoops of a golden colored alloy suspended from a rod of the same material."[3]

History of the Tablets

The text of the preface of Doreal's translation of the Tablets says the following:

The writer (who has a connection with the Great White Lodge which also works through the pyramid priesthood) was instructed to recover and return to the Great Pyramid the ancient tablets.

This, after adventures which need not be detailed here, was accomplished. Before returning them, he was given permission to translate and retain a copy of the wisdom engraved on the tablets.

This was done in 1925 and only now has permission been given for part to be published. It is expected that many will scoff. Yet the true student will read between the lines and gain wisdom.

The "Emerald Tablets of Thoth the Atlantean" were originally published in mimeographed form in the 1930s by the mysterious "Dr. Doreal," to the effect that these writings quickly became an underground sensation among metaphysicians of the time. Tablets 1-13 are part of the original work (comprising of 10 tablets) while tablets 14 and 15 are supplemental (being the last two tablets). No one has ever seen the original tablets mentioned here (perhaps they were returned to their place in the Pyramid?), and it is very likely that these writings would be considered channeled material today. However, the Emerald Tablets of Thoth the Atlantean are still part of the modern Corpus Hermeticum, for they elaborate and deepen the meaning of the historical Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus and supplement the many varied magickal writings of Thoth.
