Whence does he come, the one

Who ascends toward this Soul

That a high knoll conceals?

—Secret thing That we know not!

Postulant:

Open to me!

Verily, I am someone worthy of esteem,

I am someone who (knows) how to keep a secret,

I am a servant in the temple of Osiris!...

Open to me!

I am a (human) who knows

Its magical formula,

I was initiated into these (secret things),

And did not repeat (them)

To the uninitiated.

At the door of the temple, the candidate is addressed and the intention is unveiled: this mortal being wants to “ascend” toward the Holy of Holies, center of spirituality where the Osirian Soul radiates; the candidate wants to approach the sacred knoll under which the God Savior lies. And here comes the answer of the traveler, voiced in a peremptory tone:

Let the doors be opened to me!

I have not repeated what cannot be known. I am someone who (knows) how to keep a secret.

Then the doors open. However, the initiatory itinerary shall adapt itself to the plan of each sanctuary. For example, in Busiris the candidate crosses the entire temple before reaching the Holy of Holies; in Abydos, one goes directly underground toward the aquatic hall where the tomb is immersed.

Important variations in the texts result from this, and the Book of the Dead tries to reconcile them:

For me, the gates of the Heavens
