"Final" means the numerical value when these letters appear at the end of a word. Thus, "P" at the end of a word is 800; otherwise, 80.

Initiates should know how to find numerical significance of important terms, and creatively develop the significances thereof based on elementary mathematics. For instance:

YHVH = 10+5+6+5 = 26 (2 x 13)

ADNI = 1+4+50+10 = 65 (6 + 5 = 11) (5 x 13)

YHShVH = 10+5+300+6+5 = 326 (3+2+6 = 11)

QBL (Qabalah) = 132 (12 x 11)

AMN (Amen) = 1 + 40 + 700 = 741

Also know:

3 Mother letters = 3 elements (Aleph, air ; Mem, water; Shin, fire)

7 Double letters = 7 Planets (B=Mercury, G=Luna, D=Venus, K=Jupiter, P=Mars, R=Sun, T=Saturn)

12 Single letters = 12 Signs (H=Aries, V=Taurus, Z=Gemini, Ch=Cancer, T=Leo, Y=Virgo, L=Libra, N=Scorpio, S=Saggitarius, Ai=Capricorn, Tz=Aquarius, Q=Pisces)
