It is Anubis, the watcher in the twilight, the god that stands upon the threshold

by John Griogair Bell

“To what god shall we appeal for aid? It is Anubis, the watcher in the twilight, the god that stands upon the threshold, the jackal god of Khem, who stands in double form between the Ways. At his feet, on watch, wait the jackals themselves, to devour the carcasses of those who have not seen Him, or who have not known His Name.”—Aleister Crowley, The Book of Thoth, XVIII. The Moon
