“Maat: The 11 Laws of God” is a remarkable profound book written by Panamanian born, Ra Un Nefer Amen. Ra Un Nefer is the founder of the Ausar Auset society, a Pan-African religious organization dedicated to providing Afrocentric based spiritual training to people of African descent.

They are Principles that explain the nature and interaction of the forces and principles that influence man’s life—his/her thinking, feelings, actions and destiny. The observance of these Principles will enable the individual to live in harmony with these principles and forces, thus gaining access to God’s wisdom and spiritual power—all else that is needed or is important in life will follow. They apply to the 11 spheres of spiritual influence operating in man’s spirit and the world.
