Who is Ptah

He who gave all things the breath of life and who set all the Gods in their places – Ptah the beginning of all beginnings.

 In Egyptian (Kemetic) mythology there are many Gods and Goddesses who were filled with mystery and magic, they all represented aspects of nature and the spiritual world a dual balance between the seen and unseen.

One of the benevolent Gods in ancient Egypt (Kemet) is Ptah.

One of the connecting symbols of Ptah is embodied in the sacred bull (Apis). Apis served as the intermediary between the ancient Egyptians (Kemites) and the all-knowing Ptah.

It is said in Egyptian (Kemetic) tradition Ptah existed before all other things and fashioned the universe through the harmonies of his thoughts and the willingness of his heart, with the magic of his words the cosmos was born generating everything that we see and do not see, vast galaxies, stars and planets were formed into movement, structure and form.

Being the source of all created things Ptah was revered as the God of all craftsmen, he was particularly associated with the building of massive great architectural monuments and temples including the Pyramids of Giza and is also none as the divine blacksmith.

In the sixth dynasty the city of Memphis became the centre for the worship of Ptah, this temple consisted of three interconnecting sanctuaries and five gateways, dedicated to his Memphite triad were Sekhmet the warrior Goddess who is known as the powerful one the deity of healing and order she is depicted as the fierce lioness with a sun disk crown and Nefertem he who arose from the primal waters, he who is beautiful, the first sunlight and the pleasurable aroma of the Egyptian (Kemetic) lotus flower, many Egyptians (Kemites) carried small statuettes of Nefertem as good luck charms.

One of the connecting symbols of Ptah is embodied in the sacred bull (Apis). Apis served as the intermediary between the ancient Egyptians (Kemites) and the all-knowing Ptah.

Ptah can be seen wearing many epithets which describes his role in Egyptian (Kemetic) mythos, the WAS sceptre represents power and dominion, the Ankh which is the symbol of life and the Dejed pillar meaning stability.
