2012 has been a year of new beginning to all of us in Luntiang Aghama. For 12 years, we are an underground organization in the Philippines but last September 4, 2012 we gained our government recognition through the Securities and Exchange Commission.
2012 has brought us opportunities and lessons in life. We have met new friends; had our own ritual house in Imus, Cavite; have opened up door ways to heavens and the underworlds, and even have met Divine Energies around the world. At the same time a successful handfasting ritual was held at Peace Bell Sanctuary, Quezon City Memorial Circle, Diliman, Quezon City.
Luntiang Aghama upon its incorporation have been able to be shown in National TV through TV 5 and early this 2013 on ABS-CBN 2. Successful Sabat rituals was held at Apu Banting, Ritual for Gaia, Psychism Workshops, Healing Circles and more.
We have worked with the Diwata's, Dragons, Loa's and with the Exu's and Pomba Gira's.
Learned new skill in working with the Spirits, Mediumship and Trance Working.
And recently this 29th of December, we have invoked the Blessings of Bathala and learned his mysteries.
This 2013, the 13th Year of Aquarius and 6th Universal Year Luntiang Aghama will be carrying its mission to be implemented in our country. The mission of safeguarding the Freedom of Religion in the Philippines by cultivating harmony among magickal, mystical, metaphysical and spiritual advocates in our country by engaging communication, cooperation and coordination to one another.
The success of this mission will depend upon everyone of us here in Luntiang Aghama.
The mission of Bridging the gap of misinformation and misunderstanding must be met through information, seminar, trainings, and workshops. And most importantly awareness must rise to each of us who are already walking in this magical path we are threading to.
May 2013 bring us more blessings of enlightenment.
May the Goddess and Gods be with us.
Yours in the Craft,
Rev. Rolando G. Comon (AM) DM DD

Since December of 2000, Luntiang Aghama has been operating as an online study group for spiritual, mystical and magickal practitioners in the Philippines. We started as a common interest group in clubs Yahoo!, to Friendster and then now to Face Book.
Internet and Socail Media Network has been our strongest tool and ally in delivering communication, awareness and information to our members. Through internet, we break the barrier of innocence, ignorance and non information of the spiritual path we are heading to. With the same use of Media, Luntiang Aghama has developed a new Spiritual Path for Filipino which is the Malayang Maaram.
On its 12th year, Luntiang Aghama will move forward in breaking the barrier of non- knowing, non-information, innocence, and ignorance to the mystical, magickal and spiritual path of Malayang Maaram. Through the use of Internet and Social Media, Luntiang Aghama will continue to deliver information, awareness, and education to all its members and seekers of the arcane wisdom.
With the Incorporation of Luntiang Aghama as a Religious Corporation Sole, we will continue to provide on-line and offline training, seminar, workshops on the field of Psychism, Healing, Religious Study, Metaphysics and Magickal Arts.
Religious and Metaphysical Services and Rituals will also be held as a free expression of faith and as a support to all believers in the Craft of the Wise in fostering communication, cooperation and coordination to one another.
We as a Shrine, are not limited in professing and expressing our Faith. We are free to explore different path of spirituality and arcane wisdom. We are all Free because we are all Malayang Maaram!
Malayang Maaram is derived from two Filipino words, "Malaya" and "Maaram".
Malaya means Free and Maaram means Knowledgeable. Thus Malayang Maaram can refer to describe a person who is free in applying his/her knowledge of faith, belief and religion.
This definition can be a derivation from the Universal declaration of Human Rights, and the Bill of Rights as stated in the Philippine Constitution of 1987.
United Nations had declared the protection of the Freedom of religion as it was stated at the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights on 1948.
In Article 18, it states that:
" Everyone has the Right to FREEDOM OF THOUGHT, CONSCIENCE, AND RELIGION; this right includes FREEDOM TO CHANGE his/her religion or belief, and freedom either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or beliefs in teaching, practice, worship and observance."
The Republic of the Philippines constitution of 1987 also assure its citizens to enjoy the same FREEDOM of Religion as stated in Article III, Section 5, that says:
"No Law shall be made respecting an establishment of religion, or PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCISE THEREOF. The free exercise and enjoyment of religions, profession and worship, without discrimination or preference, shall be FOREVER BE ALLOWED. No religious test shall be required for the civil or political rights."
As a Clergy and Chief Priest of Luntiang Aghama, we claim this Freedom and Practice it with the assurance from the constitution of the republic and the declaration of the united nations. May everyone enjoy their practice of Religion and find the true FREEDOM within.
