| Maat Kheru // "True of Voice"|
According to Maspus, Maat Kheru is the Egyptian name of the true intonation with which the dead must recite those magical incantations that would give them power in Duat, the Egyptian underworld. It is named after the Egyptian concept of Ma'at, i.e. truth & order, against which the hearts of the dead were weighed.
