Chapter Summary

In this chapter, Mani interprets the five matters: (Sign of) Peace, the Right Hand, the Kiss, the Adoration and the Laying on of Hands and reveals their mysteries. The First (Sign of) Peace is the one that the Gods and Angels in the Land of Light gave to the First Man when he came out against the Enemy. The First Right Hand is that which the Mother of Life gave the First Man, when he came out to the struggle. The First Kiss is that with which the Mother of Life greeted the First Man, as he departed from her and went down to the struggle. The First Adoration is the adoration with which the First Man adored him when he came from the depth which is below. By these Five Signs, by these Five Mysteries, the First Man came from the Aeon of Light against the Enemy.
