Dimirag


Dimirag is a demon in Mathers' translation of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage.Mathers interpreted the demon's name to mean "compulsion." Unfortunately his spelling is different than the spelling of the name in other Abramelin texts, which is Garinirag. The latter is more likely the correct spelling and is a palindrome, a word reading the same backward as forward. Palindromes were considered magickal words used extensively in Greek and Roman magick and later to a lesser extent in grimoiric magick. The Abramelin material agrees this demon serves Beelzebub. A.G.H.
