The "Greetings to the Princes and the Legions" are a part of my recommended standard ritual format. They are to be said immediately after the preliminary Invocation to Satan.

Below are four versions, one for each element:

Also, here is an older version.

Notes on the names of the elemental Princes, and suggestions on how to visualize them while doing any of the above versions of the ritual:

Important notes:

  1. If you live in the Southern Hemisphere, the directions north and south should be transposed. Turn clockwise instead of counterclockwise, and greet Iblis in the north and Belial in the south instead of vice versa. The calls to the Legions should be adjusted likewise.
  2. For more information about the names Leviathan, Iblis, Samael, Lucifer, Belial, Lilith, and Azazel, see Infernal names, directional correspondences, etc.

Thanks to Sarah Harper for suggesting the lines: "... who opens our eyes, and rends the veils between the worlds!"
