Dustjacket is chipped to the top edge and has small holes along the fore-edge, with some loss to the rear panel. But what really makes this book great is the seriousness with which Crowley approaches his subject; he makes the magic real. The section also addresses fundamental magical theorems, essential components of ritual, and general practices (e. Do As Thou Wilt Is The Whole Of The Law" is actually an excellent first step towards recognizing that people are different than the creatures presupposed by the guiding moralities of the time, but he fails to draw universal conclusions or apply these precepts externally to himself, too busy assuming he is a beautiful and unique snowflake to realize that the fulfillment of this human nature is a laudable goal and morality should be based on who we are and how to live on Earth.

Cermonial and practical magic, by Aleister Crowley he English occultist, philosopher, ceremonial magician, poet, painter, and novelist. because with reason, everything he believes must be false, and everything he has done with his life makes no sense. Abuldiz appeared in Mary Desti's visions (as Crowley's seer) as an old man with a long white beard, wearing a ring which contained a white feather. Aleister Crowley was devoted to understanding and communicating with forces unknown, spirits, and gods.Many consider this work by Crowley to be the foremost book on ceremonial magic written in the twentieth century. As these are old books, we processed each page manually and make them readable but in some cases some pages which are blur or missing or black spots. The clue to the absurd accusations of black magic lies in one of Crowley's other essays (An initiated interpretation of ceremonial magic) in which he states "Magic is a mirror, wherein one who sees muck, is muck. The first is Asana, which is the assumption (after eventual success) of any easy, steady and comfortable posture. For reasons unknown to me at the time I made meditative circles every night, at sunset, for 95 sunsets in a row.

It is comprehensive, clearly written (although that can't be said of everything Crowley wrote but then some of his works are actually mystical in nature) and while you may not agree with everything he says, it is inspiring. When developing his basic yogic program, Crowley borrowed heavily from many other yogis, such as Patanjali and Yajnavalkya, keeping their fundamental techniques while jettisoning much of the attendant moral dogma. With the digestible state this particular collection of essays is formed in (versus his many other writings on the same subject having labrynthean properties), he seems to lay such aforementioned traps to catch any overly zealous flies in an esoteric webb.

Chapters from To Mega Therion's magnum opus include, "Hymn to Pan", "The Principles of Ritual", "The Formula of I. On the subject of magical weapons, I disagree whole heartily with Crowley on the subject of producing one's own magical weapons versus obtaining it from a proper place.

Dharana is the beginning of concentration, usually on a single shape, like a triangle, which eventually leads to Dhyana, the loss of distinction between object and subject, which can be described as the annihilation of the ego (or sense of a separate self). This article includes a list of general references, but it lacks sufficient corresponding inline citations.

I like the original facsimile editions (from Dover in paperback and Castle in hardcover) since they are a photographic reproduction of Crowley's original, author approved, English printing. In those circles, among other things, I often put blood from my fingers after a small poke and went into trances while downloading more information I am only now beginning to understand. There is also a very useful section later in the book of magical correspondences (we have referenced this section for years).

Regardless of whether you believe in Aleister Crowley as a practitioner of real Magick, his authoritative treatise on the subject is worth a read for anyone interested in the Occult. We give our best to give you the best book but in some cases we have to adjust few pages which are blur or missing or black spots. Part III is titled "Magick in Theory and Practice", and is perhaps the most influential section within Book 4. I had a vividly real kundalini awakening in the year of our Lord 2018 that pulled me kicking and screaming from the chains of slavery and out of the Matrix, or Plato’s Cave, if you please. that make this a great book, starting with his outline in the beginning of the book, defining magic, its theory and the postulates and theorems thereof.John Frederick Charles Fuller, 1878-1966); Soror Alostrael ( Leah Hirsig, 1883-1951) and Frater Volo Intelligere ( Gerald Yorke, 1901-1983).
