Harpocrates - Har-pa-khered - Heru-pa-khered

Early in Chapter One we read, “Behold! it is revealed by Aiwass the minister of Hoor-paar-Kraat”. Hoor-paar-Kraat (Harpocrates) is the infant Horus, the passive part of the god, but also the crowned and conquering child and the Lord of the New Æon. Crowley wrote that Hoor-paar-Kraat “represents the Higher Self, the Holy Guardian Angel.”

“I am the Hawk-Headed Lord of Silence & of Strength; my nemyss shrouds the night-blue sky.” This seems to describe not only Ra-Hoor-Khuit, but Heru-Ra-Ha himself.

"The half of the word of Heru-ra-ha, called Hoor-pa-kraat and Ra-Hoor-Khut.” Heru-ra-ha is the combined form of RHK and HPK.

“Who worshipped Heru-pa-kraath have worshipped me; ill, for I am the worshipper.” Another connection between HPK and Hadit. The silent self equals the Kundalini, which must be active in the aspirant as he seeks Nuit.

“Ha.” It is fitting that The Book ends here. It is the final part of Heru-Ra-Ha’s name and also the Egyptian word for Lord.

The first (counting backwards) Æthyr of The Vision and the Voice seems to come directly from Hoor-paar-Kraat.
