"He(Cagliostro) introduced a new Rite under the name of Egyptian Masonry and sought to restore the mysterious worship of Isis." - Eliphas
"Ragon commits the crime of slandering the Great Copto.
"Eliphas Levi also slanders the Count Cagliostro by accusing him of being a Black Magician" - Samael Aun Weor
"We clarify: We do not want to say that Eliphas Levi is a Black Magician, he is not, he is a Master. But what we affirm is that his books,
in spite of having that seal of grandiosity, are mingled with a lot of impure knowledge." - Samael Aun Weor
It seems that Aleister Crowley was at one time an Initiate of Cagliostro's Isisian tradition.
But then Aleister Crowley, later on, unfortunately abandoned the worship of Isis, in order to submerge himself into the worship of the Whore of
Babalon in combination with chauvinism and homosexual practices.

It becomes self-evident that he who passed successfully through these arduous tests involving both natural and also supernatural hazards was a man
apart in his community. Such an initiate was deemed to be more than human, for he had achieved where countless ordinary mortals, having failed, had
returned no more. Let us hear the words of Apuleius when admitted into the Temple of Isis, as recorded in The Metamorphosis, or Golden Ass:
"Then also the priest, all the profane being removed, taking hold of me by the hand, brought me to the penetralia of the temple, clothed in a new
linen garment. Perhaps, inquisitive reader, you will very anxiously ask me what was then said and done? I would tell you, if it could be lawfully
told; you should know it, if it was lawful for you to hear it. But both ears and the tongue are guilty of rash curiosity. Nevertheless, I will not
keep you in suspense with religious desire, nor torment you with long-continued anxiety. Hear, therefore, but believe what is true. I approached to
the confines of death, and having trod on the threshold of Proserpine, I returned from it, being carried through all the elements. At midnight I saw
the sun shining with a splendid light; and I manifestly drew near to the Gods beneath, and the Gods above, and proximately adored them. Behold, I have
narrated to you things, of which, though heard, it is nevertheless necessary that you should be ignorant. I will, therefore, only relate that which
may be enunciated to the understanding of the profane without a crime." [p 415]

And thanks, TheWalkingFox, for referring to the proper pronunciations of the Khemetian Neteru.
And also Isis-Ra-El.
I prefer, in most cases, to say the non-Grecianized Khemetic Names myself.
It seems that Tehuti(as opposed to Djehutey) is the best pronunciation for "Thoth"(see Metu Neter by Ra Un Nefer Amen).
