Ausar Auset Society International
About the Ausar Auset Society International
The Ausar Auset Society is a Pan-African organization based on the indigenous traditional African cultures dating from the earliest documentable periods (Kamit Egypt. Indus Kush/ pre-Aryan Vedantic India. Canaan/ Palestine, and Kush/ Ethiopia)
The society was established in September 1973 by his Royal Highness, Shekhem Ur Shekhem Ra Un Nefer Amen I for the purpose of providing an Afrocentric based spiritual training to the descendants of Africa in the Diaspora, as well as the society vehicle that would enable them to live accordingly.
Some of the first classes were taught at the Tree of Life bookstore on west 125th Street in Harlem, New York City before classes moved to another Harlem location, the Rosicrucian Center on west 138th Street. The present headquarters is located at 1100 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn, N.Y.
The Ausarian Religious System, which is the oldest, (cir. 3000 BC - 300 AD) provides the spiritual/religious foundation. It's fundamental tenet states that God and Man (men and women) share the same divine attributes qualitatively but not quantitatively. Thus unlike Judeo/Christian and other such religions in which man is essentially bound to the frailties of the flesh and incapable of transcending his/ her human limitations, the Ausarian Religion is fundamentally based upon the individual's effort to use each and every life experience as a mean of bringing his/ her attributes to the fore as the "normal" was of addressing all issues in life. Hence, there is no "Salvation" after a life of debauchery and mistreatment of others by simply being forgiven of one's sins when death approaches. One must live by Maat (Divine Law) while alive by making one's body, one's life even into a fit vessel through which God's divine attributes can be of service to all creation, all over the world. The Ausar Auset Society International teaches the Kamitic system of philosophy (cosmology), meditation/ritual, oracle consultation, yoga, nutrition, herbalism / homeopathic medicine, astrology, African history/culture, etc.
The society has expanded from its New York base to establish a host of hespu (regions, districts) and study groups throughout the United Stated and overseas (London, Toronto, Trinidad, Bermuda, St. Thomas).
The Ausar Auset Society has based its government on the traditional African Kingship structure due to its superiority over western format of government. This system is built around a hierarchally organized group of officials whose titles include King, Queen Mother, Priest (ess), Chief (tess), Elder, etc. One of the main differences between the traditional African Kingship and its European counterparts is that the King had to also qualify as Chief Priest. This ensured that the leader of the people was a highly spiritually trained person of impeccable character. It is principally this criteria that enabled traditional African nations to maintain greater social stability that their western counterparts over a long period of time.
Each Ausar Auset Society Hesp is under the leadership of either a Paramount King, Paramount Queen Mother, or Chief (tess) with their own hierachy of officials and complete autonomy of their region.
