History of Ra Un Nefer Amen I and Ausar Auset Society International

Sun, Jun 8, 2008

Classical Afrikan, Elders

Ra un Nefer Amen is Chief Priest of the Ausar Auset Society which is headquartered in Brooklyn, New York and has chapters in nearly every major city throughout the U.S. and several cities internationally. In 1985, his excellency Ra Un Nefer Amen I was enstooled as a Paramount King (Omanhene) and co-ruler of the Agogo state in Ghana, West Africa by Agogohene Nana Kwame Akuoko Sarpong. Also presented to him was the Epoh Stool, indicating his role as a leader of the Ashanti region of Ghana, West Africa.

Perhaps the only progenitor of Kemetic/Egyptian spirituality that is recognized on the continent of Africa as genuine and properly sanctioned by Kemetic ancestry, Ausar Auset Society has gown primarily due to its teachings of holistic heath, which include vegetarianism and Amen’s books on spirituality, Metu Neter Vol. 1 & 2. According to the Society, Nile Valley Mall, Inc., operated the first health food stores in America to sell homeopathic remedies, beginning in 1979 and introduced contemporaries to Echinacea.

The Ausar Auset Society is a Pan African Religious organization founded in 1973. As Legend would have it, Ra Un Nefer Amen developed a congenial relationship with Oba Adefunmi and began to consult the Ifa Oracle through the Oba for the purpose of organizing the spiritual experiences and messages he was clearly receiving from the Spiritual realm. Those consultations shaped some early organizational structure and comparative religious studies that resulted in the Society. Again, as legend would have it, a small group of Orisa priests (Ol’Orisa) were beseeched by Kemetic Sheps (Ancestors) to assist Amen in the establishment of what most consider the only legitimate revival of Egyptian spirituality outside of the relatively underground Nubian community that survives in North Africa. They helped develop and train the core group of original Society priests. Prior to this tradition, some say that Ra Un Nefer Amen was the former head of the Rosicrucian Anthroposophical League.

Amen is preferably referred to as Shekem Ur Shekem (King of Kings) or Ashem Ur Ashem (Chief Priest of Priest), both are traditional titles give to King-Priest in ancient Kemetic cultures. He was raised in San Miguel, Panama but later moved to the U.S. where he studied classical music and became an accomplished pianist and composer. He later passed on a life in the music industry to focus on more spiritual and culturally fulfilling endeavors.

    Keep in mind, Metu Neter doesn’t use Tarot Cards. Tarot does NOT communicate with Ancestors or Deities. The Metu Neter Oracle does.

  5. Admin Says:

    I’m not sure. You should contact one of the communities listed in the Temple Directory. They will know for sure. There may be a “study group” at minimum.

    I was told it cost 300 to be apart of the society. im not downing it, im just asking. and i come from a christian background but had many doubts when i finally came across the society. i would go the nutrition classes and some of the tree of life teachings. i feel that i greatly benefitted from it, i even had a divination reading, but i just could not get over the whole “oracle” thing. it just didnt make sense to me that pulling a card was going to have some spiritual message that was from God. Since all of the principles represented on the card are seem to be positive then i mean, how could u go wrong no matter what you pick? also, people charge for the readings. i was always told that if you have a spiritual gift (to do readings) that its really not cool to charge money for that. i don’t know. any comments?

    hi i am trying to find the chanting tapes or cds to your book could you pease inform

  11. Admin Says:

    To “my book”? Roots and Rooted publishes no book (as of yet). You are referring to the Metu Neter. Please be advised, the page clearly states that Roots and Rooted is in no way affiliated with Ausar Auset, Ra Un Nefer Amen or the Metu Neter. We pay tribute. We do sell some of their spiritual items. For a complete list please go to our store or use the links on this page to go directly to Ausar Auset’s store.

    Please all – read the page completely – before sending emails or making inquiries. We honor Ausar Auset for their contributions. But we are not Ausar Auset. It says so very clearly.

    Be well and good luck on your spiritual journey.

  12. Admin Says:

    Okay, I’ve been through all your comments. They seems tad negative…and generally inaccurate. $300 to be a part of what? Ausar Auset? You are incorrect.

  13. rafik Says:

    Greetings I had a question about the last paragraph in the history of brotha shekem . They said he was head of the rosicrucian anthroposophical league. Is that a fact? Or legend? A close friend and teacher ,told me he was corresponding with the rosicrucians in the 70′s they wanted him to become a member until they met him and found out he was a black man , from what I understand now , they accept all people no matter what nationality .

  14. Admin Says:

    You’d have to ask Shekem Ur Shekem or one of the priests of AAS.

  15. Future Says:

    OH MY
    I am without words. I am often possesed ( for lack of a better word) by my ancestors and I’ve never heard the tongue before. I came to this site today and heard the priest speaking this language. It is much like mines when they come into me.

    I thank you for this site and this share……
