Ntr Sentra ritual
The Ntr Sentra ritual is one of the oldest known religious rituals and variations of it have appeared (often developing independently) in religions and cultures around the world. Ntr Sentra is the sincerely held religious belief that divine smoke empowers and makes prayers more pleasing to the divine.
Ntr Sentra literally means the breath of the divine. The modern English words incense and frankincense are derived from this ancient Egyptian phrase. The modern English word nature is derived from Ntr (Netcher) and the modern English word scent is derived from Sentra.
There is active debate as to when the ancient Egyptians included cannabis smoke in the Ntr Sentra ritual. This was clearly occuring by the time the Greeks entered their Golden Age.

This is a ritual that can be performed by groups in a temple, as well as by individuals, families, or friends in homes and other places.
Members of the Ntr Sentrist branch of Pr Ntr Kmt believe that the Ntr Sentra ritual using cannabis smoke for prayers is the most central and most important part of their religion.
On February 21, 2006, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled unanimously 8-0 (Alito didnt participate because he wasnt there to hear the case) that members of the ayahuasca-using União do Vegetal (UDV) church (estimated 130 members in the U.S.) must be allowed to continue using their DMT-containing tea until a final decision is reached in their case against the government.
The U.S. Supreme Court ruling was based on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and applies to all federal officers and agencies. Similar rulings could possibly be based on similarly-worded state laws in Alabama, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Carolina, and Texas.
No court has yet ruled specifically on sincerely held religious belief in Ntr Sentra using cannabis. Please be aware that the government routinely violates its citizens Constitutional rights (especially under the Bush administration) and only those with a lawyer can actually exercise basic Constitutional rights. Because U.S. law only grants Constitutional rights to those who are rich enough to afford to have lawyers, you will need to hire a lawyer if you intend to try to exercise your first amendment religious right to worship a Goddess instead of the officially established God that appears in the written religious oath In God We Trust that is officially placed on all U.S. money.
Please hire a lawyer before attempting to exercise freedom of religion. The U.S. has a long history of torturing and murdering those who dare to participate in pagan religions (especially Witchcraft and ancient religions) in direct violation of the officially established U.S. government religion.
Joining the Pr Ntr Kmt religion could possibly help strengthen your defense (consult with your attorney). It is free to join the Pr Ntr Kmt church, although your donations will help support the church website and other programs. To join, contact the church at Contact007@PrNtrKmt.org.
Learning about additional religious beliefs from antiquity and modern times will help you formulate your own personal religious doctrine, which may also help your religious defense (consult your lawyer). A major purpose of this website is to provide church members with high quality information on the Pr Ntr Kmt religion.
We look forward to adding free and paid listings of lawyers in the U.S. who are willing to defend the Constitutional right to freedom of religion. Lawyers who want to be listed should contact Contact007@PrNtrKmt.org.
Ntr Sentra poem
Mau Bast! Mau Bast!
A Basti, per em setat,
erta-na chu em asui
neter sentra semu hena net'emmit,
hetep ab em asui tau heqt.
Hail Bast! Hail Bast!
Hail Bast, coming forth from the secret place,
may there be given to me splendor in the place
of incense (cannabis smoke), herbs, and love-joys,
peace of heart in the place of bread and beer.
