The Papyrus of Ani, Chapter 43

Copyright 1997 by Neil Parker.


A spell for not letting a man's head be cut off from him in the underworld. Words spoken by the Osiris Ani Ani [sic]:

I am the great one, the son of the great one; I am the fire, son of the fire.

His head was given to him after it was cut off. The head of Osiris is not snatched away from him; may the head of the Osiris Ani not be snatched away from him.

I am fastened together; I am true; I am young. I am Osiris, lord of eternity.
