25 The Very Saintly Ashiata Shiemash, Sent from Above to the Earth


“Definite information relating to His Very Saintly Activities passed from generation to generation from the contemporaries of the Very Saintly Ashiata Shiemash to the beings of the following generations through those called there ‘initiates,’ by means of a certain what is called ‘Legominism’ of His deliberations under the title of ‘The Terror-of-the-Situation.’


“In addition to this, there has survived from the period of His Very Saintly Activities and there still exists even till now, one of several what are called ‘marble tablets’ on which were engraved His ‘counsels’ and ‘commandments’ and ‘sayings’ to the beings contemporary with Him.


“And at the present time this surviving tablet is the chief sacred relic of a small group of initiated beings there, called the ‘Brotherhood-Olbogmek,’ whose place of existence is situated in the middle of the continent Asia.


“The name Olbogmek means, ‘There are not different religions, there is only one God.’
