GOETIA GIRL BUNE, SHINTO SUCCUBUS OF WEALTH, FORTUNE AND LONG LIFE
The twenty-sixth Succubus of the Goetia is called Bune or Bimé or Bim, she is a Duchess whom governs over 30 legions of Succubae. The name of Bune could have been derived from the Old English Bune, for reed and that of an associated 15th Rune.
Although you have the word, boon, meaning luck and wealth, which is etymologically associated with the Spanish, Buena, which means, good. You also have the Eastern European, Bune, which is a term for a certain type of bun, along with a slang term for the perinium and bunny. As for Bimé and Bim, they appear to be derived from Bune.
Bune is very likely derived from the Japanese word for, ship. This is further compounded when to look at Bune’s grimoire seals, which are an abstract representation of a Japanese ship, whose construction has a very distinctive shape of an uncanny similarity to Bune’s two seals.
One of the seals of Bune you could imaginatively associate with the Utsuro Bune of Japanese UFO lore, should you desire to take the associations further.
Although the Utsuro Bune is described as being shaped like a bun; while Bune’s other seal depicts a horned dragon, which is traditionally considered to be Bune’s most powerful seal.
The horned dragon motif of Bune’s seal is self evident, which also depicts what appears to be a humanoid figure steering a rudder, who is probably female, considering there was a bunny girl pilot piloting the Utsuro Bune, who was late for an important date; then again, maybe she wasn’t, if the Utsuro Bune was a time machine.
In Japanese lore the horned dragon is very much tied up with what is known as the Takarabune, which means Takara/treasure and Bune/ship.
The Takarabune treasure ship is often depicted as having the body of a dragon, with a horned dragon’s head as its prow, somewhat akin to a Viking ship.
The dragon symbolism often refers to the star constellation of Draco, which if you be so inclined you could even associate with the Dragon’s Triangle just off the coast of Japan; whose time maelstrom, 16th century Portuguese gun runners and slavers tended to avoid, by using Bune’s dragon seal in order to protect them from killer bunnies.
Bune is also described in the Goetia to be associated with a Gryphon, which in Japanese lore would be otherwise depicted as a giant Eagle called a Garuda out of Hindu mythology; whereas in astronomy it is associated with the star constellation of Aquila. You could even relate the Eagle with the ‘Plumed Serpent’ of the Americas, where there be a Bermuda Triangle; whose time maelstrom, 16th century Portuguese gun runners and slavers tended to avoid, by using Bune’s less elaborate seal in order to protect them from viscious Sirens.
A 16th century Jesuit priest returning back from a Portuguese slavery expedition to Japan, having the full blessing of the church of Rome; who, when attempting to describe a Garuda to his Christian audience, would probably describe it as being of a composite form, of similarity to a monstrous Gryphon. However, such a description would be due to the Garuda being a favourite trance mount of Mongol shamans, whom frequent Genghis Khan’s steppe from where the Attila the Hun symbolism of the Gryphon had originally stemmed, which still haunts the nightmares of Rome. The Garuda is associated with the winds; wherefore in context of a dragon ship, it would probably be that of a symbolic code alluding to the sail of the Mermaid Takarabune.
Another animal, which associated with Bune is the Dog, which of astronomy is associated with Canis Major and the star of Sirius. The Dog is extensively featured in Japanese myth, more so that of the Fox. Although, the Dog is not specifically associated with the Takarabune, there is another animal, which is very much involved with the Takarabune called a Baku. The Baku was seen to be a devourer of negative influences assailing the dreams of the Japanese, which, ironically, was a Chinese creature originally. Don’t tell Bune that, otherwise you will hurt her feelings, since she’s a Shinto priestess, who’s highly versed in the martial arts.
The Baku was very likely mistaken by a 16th century Portuguese gun runner and slaver for a Dog. The Spanish, Dutch and British invasion forces likewise misinterpreted the Baku when taking over Nagasaki, whom were later followed by the American’s, long prior to WWII, when Nagasaki was nuked. The Baku is actually a Tapir, whose Japanese character is often shown on the sail of the Takarabune.
The described functions of Bune can be summed up by the ancient Japanese ancestor worship of Shintoism, whose practices revere the ancestral dead, from which the Takarabune originates. Shinto, also kami-no-michi, is the indigenous religion of Japan.
It is commonly defined as an action-centred religion, which focuses on ritual practices to be diligently carried out in order to establish a spiritual connection between present-day Japan and its ancient ancestral-self-identity.
Whereas the invading European cultures had entirely forgotten their own ancestors to otherwise appropriate the ancestral-self-identity of the Hebrew’s, whom sought to likewise afflict the same insanity upon the Japanese.
It is said that Shinto had been founded in 660 BC according to Japanese mythology. Shinto practices were first recorded and codified within the written historical records of the Kojiki and Nihon Shoki during the 8th century.
Shinto is a term, which also applies to an animist religion, where public shrines are devoted to the worship of a multitude of deities, which are collectively called Kami.
The Kami are defined in English as being ‘spirits,’ or essences as well as deities, referring to their informational reality, underlying phenomenal existence, beyond the infinite.
Since Japanese language does not distinguish between singular and plural, Kami refers to the divinity, or sacred essence, which manifests in multiple forms. The Kami coexists with people; they are not seen as being separate; whom exist within the same world and share its interrelated complexity.
There are also references to certain spirits being associated with Bune, which are supposedly called Bunis by the shamanic Tartars of the steppe. A 16th century Portuguese gun runner and slaver had probably equated the Japanese practice of Shinto with the then maligned shamanic practices of the Tartars whom dallied with (Bunis) spirit wives.
You can easily imagine how a Christian audience had reacted to early reports of Shinto, to see it as a dreadful Pagan religion of the dead, worshipping vile spirits. Wherefore it was not a sin to have acquired pagan slaves, more so Japanese slave women to serve the whims of their masters Hentai desires. Although the Bunis specifically refer to the spirits under Bune, which as a ship, are as its crew.
The Takarabune is traditionally seen to have a crew of Kami, called the Shichi Fukujin, commonly referred to in English as the Seven Lucky deities, who are the seven deities of good fortune in Japanese mythology and folklore. The Shichi Fukujin are often the subject of Netsuke carvings and other artistic representations.
The reference to the number seven could be a an astronomical association with the seven stars of Ursa Major or the Pleiades, perhaps even the seven Chakras. Whereas a 16th century scholar had probably otherwise equated the seven lucky deities to the seventh Cabbalistic sphere of Venus.
The Shinto tradition still holds that the seven deities arrive in town within their Takarabune, like some descending UFO of a Utsuro Bune Time Machine or that of a prior Star Trek Enterprise, on the New Year around the star clock. These seven deities then set about distributing fantastic gifts to worthy people.
Children often receive red envelopes emblazoned with the Takarabune, which contain gifts of money during the New Year. The Takarabune and its celestial passengers are often depicted in art in varied locations, from the walls of museums to cuddly caricatures, whose monetary gifts is said to be also bestowed by the Bune of the grimoires.
The ability of eloquence is one of the principle abilities Bune bestows along with wisdom. This eloquence specifically refers to Shinto’s emphasis on the power of words, which is termed as Kotodama or Kototama, literally ‘word spirit/soul.’ The term Kotodama refers to the Japanese belief that mystical powers dwell in words and names.
English translations include, ‘soul of language, spirit of language, power of language, power word, magic word,’ and ‘sacred sound.’ The notion of Kotodama presupposes that sounds can magically affect objects, and that ritual word usages can influence our environment, body, mind, and soul. But then, when a word is consciously uttered of lucidity within an electron dream it does initiate instantaneous symbolic associations.
Wherefore you have to use such an informational domain ability wisely. This ability of inner eloquence is primarily bestowed by one of the seven lucky deities who is originally the Hindu Goddess Sarasvatî Devî. In Japanese Sarasvatî Devî is otherwise known as Benzaiten, who is the Goddess of everything that flows: water, words, speech, communication, eloquence, music and by extension, knowledge and monetary wealth.
The original characters used to write her name read ‘Biancaitian’ in Chinese and ‘Bensaiten,’ in Japanese. Benzaiten’s name reflects her role as the Goddess of eloquence. Because the Sutra of Golden Light promised protection of the state, she became a protector-deity in Japan, at first of the state and then of the people. Lastly, she became one of the seven deities of fortune when the Sino-Japanese characters used to write her name changed to Benzaiten, emphasizing her role in ‘bestowing Monetary Fortune.’
Benzaiten is also a Goddess of art, beauty and love, who is beloved of the Geishas, whom are very much of the planetary sphere of Venus, from where Bune classically emanates, as a seventh dimensional entity. The symbolism of the Geisha has since been translated via Manga and Anime into the evolving symbolic complex of the modern Japanese schoolgirl motif. These Manga and Anime schoolgirls are usually depicted wearing ‘sailor uniforms,’ whom have taken on the role of the Buddhist Dakinis, time travelling around in their Utsuro Bune UFO’s.
Should you feel so inclined of a rebellious reversal, you could thereby perceive Bune as being similar to Benzaiten, whom manifests as a Japanese schoolgirl, speaking with a most comely voice, whose symbol is the Takarabune.
She would also be a Shinto priestess, who enables the Kami to frequent your altars to alter via the ‘seventh dimension’ as well as being highly versed in wealth magic. (Bune’s two seals represent her manifestations as a [first seal] schoolgirl and a [dragon seal] Shinto priestess.)
You could of course continue conjuring up Bune as being a monstrous blood drenched death metal entity amidst your branded triangle of art imagination. Such is your indoctrinated choice to do so. But you will be invariably playing into what has been established of a 16th century Christian perception of animist Shinto. The practices of animist Shinto absolutely horrified the patriarchal flocks frequenting their monotheist church, even though they were surrounded by the pyres of burning Witches at a time when a sweaty monk was drawing Bune’s seals, which no doubt kept the fleecy minded Sheep all nicely ignorant, and brain-dead zombie cult comfy.
You will still have the shock factor should you conjure up Bune as a Japanese schoolgirl Succubus. Although you will probably be seen as being a wimp by the death metal mages, who like to habitually conjure up their machismo entities out of bisexual Crowley’s Goetia. However, you will certainly get the tongues of the flocks a wagging that you be a vile Satanist or worse, which would be especially the case should you suddenly win the lottery jackpot after an erotic precognitive dream involving a Japanese schoolgirl piloting a luxury yacht looking like a bun. In fact it would be far more Entartete Kunst shocking than conjuring up a demonic choir boy of Vatican commonality.
Just remember, don’t take the hedonic Hentai piss out of Japanese schoolgirl Succubus Bune; for she will surely reflect you back within your lucid dreams. If you ignore this warning, you might just find yourself wearing a sailor uniform being pursued by phallic tentacles without a Baku in sight. But then she does give true answers unto your demands. So be careful of what questions you to ask. In the recognition of this Shinto fact, of an eloquent conjuration of one of the Kami, you will then attain the Takarabune wealth of inner wisdom, as well as Bune gifting you a tasty Nikuman Bun of an apport, in the shape of your own skull.
