An Invitation to the African Diaspora

The foundational principle of Kôngo divine initiation reveals that human beings (bântu) are born with a perfect divine path set by the Most High (Nzâmbi Ampûngu Tulêndo). However, we encounter resistance from malevolent and negative forces knocking us from that path. Consequently, our wise Ancestors instituted initiation into the divine mystery (secret teachings leading to illumination) to realign the mûntu (human being) with their divine purpose.

The purpose of initiation is to reeducate and realign the mûntu with their divine nature.

Even in the face of changing times, the essence of the divine initiation remains steadfast. Yet, as we reflect on the atrocities of enslavement and colonization, we're reminded of the deliberate efforts to strip away our Black/African history, culture, identity, and connection to our Ancestral wisdom.

The scars of this oppression run deep, haunting both those scattered across the Diaspora. and those rooted in Mother Africa. Forced from our divine path by the hands of oppressors, we find ourselves yearning to reclaim what was unjustly stolen from us. The urgency of this healing journey cannot be overstated; it's a lifeline amidst the wreckage of our past.

In the throes of Western religious dominance, divine initiation into BUKÔNGO African Traditional Religion stands as a beacon of light on this relentless journey, guiding us back to our true nature as spiritually empowered beings. The door of return opens through the divine mysteries of BUKÔNGO African Traditional Religion.

The door of return opens through the Divine Mysteries. Welcome home!

The Journey to Spiritual Rebirth

At Nzil'Alowa, our modern academy of African traditional spirituality, initiation into the divine mystery isn't just a ritual – it’s an elevation of our religion to its original nature as an exact science. Here, our journey begins with healing our spiritual culture.

Imagine, if you will, the impossible made possible: our African religion, once relegated to the sidelines, is elevated to its rightful place as an exact science. It's a transformation achieved through the profound wisdom of the Kemetic Cosmological Argument – a deductive reasoning that establishes the essential doctrines of the religion bequeathed by our ancestors. The benefit of reestablishing this scientific nature of African Traditional Religion (ATR) is seen in the fact that religion underpins all the aspects of African culture.

But the true beauty lies in the ripple effect of this restoration.

For too long, we've been told that our beliefs were primitive, backward, mere superstitions, even witchcraft. But now, as African Traditional Religion (ATR) reclaims its scientific nature, it infuses every facet of our culture with renewed vigor. It's a renaissance, a rebirth for those called to reclaim this sacred science.

Divine initiation also becomes a powerful tool of apologetics for the defense of our scientific and technological culture. Moreover, science being universal, the elevation of the ATR to the level of an exact science will easily lead to the renaissance of the Black Nation sought after by the Pan-Africanist movement.

While the wounds of our past may run deep, they do not define us. It's time to shift our perspective, to rise above the ashes and reclaim our ancestral birthright hidden within the divine mysteries of BUKÔNGO.

Unlocking the Secrets of Divine Mysteries

First, understand that your true nature is not the corporeal being, but the inner spiritual being, a "Sun of the Most High" - an Osiris.

The purpose of initiation (luhândusu) is to develop the ability to be in touch directly, or symbolically through the ngânga (initiator), with the Holy Ancestors who are in mpêmba (water as symbol of the holy abode of illuminated ancestors) as they are the emissaries of divine revelation and healing.

During the 9-Day Initiation, you will be arming yourself with the knowledge and practice of the divine science to activate Nzâmbi-n’kisi (spiritual power) within you.

What Does it Mean to be Initiated?

Luhândusu into the divine mystery of Bukôngo is a sacred and transformative journey into deeper spiritual understanding and connection with the Bakulu ban'lôngo (Holy Ancestors). The 9-Day initiation involves a series of teachings and activities designed to awaken your consciousness to the profound realization of your true spiritual nature. In a community of fellow initiates, you will be taught natural systematic theology, cosmology, epistemology, spiritual healing of yourself and others, and defense against the use of “black magic.” As a result, you will arise empowered, a spiritual rebirth if you will, with a renewed sense of purpose and a deeper sense of knowing who you really are and what you are capable of.

Initiation into the divine mystery is not about building shrines, creating talismans or fetishes, or feeding the gods, it is deep inner work of remembering and activation. Ultimately, initiation into the divine mysteries is about recognizing the inherent n’kisi (divine power) WITHIN YOU!!  You will learn how to harness the support of divine guidance within and around you to heal any "dis-ease" in your life and manifest the life you seek. 


What activities are involved during the initiation?

The initiation comprises of wisdom teachings in the Bukongo tradition of the KImpasi. Initiates will be engaged in the study of cosmology, ancient wisdom, comparative theology, purification of thoughts as well as spiritual healing techniques. It's like going to an ancient mystery school of advanced wisdom. There will be no creation of elements from nature. That will be offered in the second level of initiation in the Congo. 

Note: this is not similar to or connected with Palo practices in the diaspora. This is study of the Kimpasi, the divine mystery. If you are not certain of the difference, consider taking  a course.
