In Masonry there is mention of the lost word. Hiram abiff was in possession of it and he had it inscribed on a golden triangle around his neck. The
legends say he was killed for this "word" but what was it?
Enoch also knew this word and he also inscribed it on a golden triangle that he then set into the face of a cubit stone
In ancient times this word was known as the name of the lord, unfortunately this was later misunderstood as the name of God. The lord refers rather to
the keeper of the knowledge ie the lord or hierophant of the college...madam Blavatsky sums it up well:
“This race could live with equal ease in water, air, or fire, for it had an unlimited control over the elements. These were the ‘Sons of God’;
not those who saw the daughters of men, but the real Elohim, though in the oriental Kabala they have another name. It was they who imparted Nature’s
most weird secrets to men, and revealed to them the ineffable, and now lost ‘word.’ ”
“This word, which is no word, has travelled once around the globe, and still lingers as a far-off dying echo in the hearts of some privileged men.
The hierophants of all the Sacerdotal Colleges were aware of the existence of this island; but the ‘word’ was known only to the Java Aleim (Maha
Chohan in another tongue), or chief lord of every college, and was passed to his successor only at the moment of death. There were many such colleges,
and the old classic authors speak of them."
"Centuries after our era the Initiates of the inner temples and the Mathams (monastic communities) chose a superior council, presided over by an
all-powerful Brahm-Ãtmâ, the Supreme Chief of all those Mahâtmâs.
This pontificate could be exercised only by a Brâhman who had reached a certain age, and he it was who was the sole guardian of the mystic formula,
and he was the Hierophant who created great Adepts.
He alone could explain the meaning of the sacred word, AUM, and of all the religious symbols and rites. And whosoever among those Initiates of the
Supreme Degree revealed to a profane a single one of the truths, even the smallest of the secrets entrusted to him, had to die; and he who received
the confidence was put to death.
But there existed, and still exists to this day, a Word far surpassing the mysterious monosyllable, and
which renders him who comes into possession of its key nearly the equal of Brahman. The Brahmâtmâs
alone possess this key, and we know that to this day there are two great Initiates in Southern
India who possess it. It can be passed only at death, for it is the “Lost Word.” No torture, no human
power, could force its disclosure by a Brâhman who knows it; and it is well guarded in Tibet."
We are told that Solomon also was in possession of this knowledge
"This is the Form of the Magical Triangle, into the which Solomon did command the Evil Spirits. It is to be made at 2 feet distance from the Magical
Circle and it is 3 feet across. Note that this triangle is to be placed toward that quarter whereunto the Spirit belongeth. And the base of the
triangle is to be nearest unto the Circle, the apex pointing in the direction of the quarter of the Spirit. Observe thou also the Moon in thy working,
as aforesaid, etc."
