This book is a full introduction to the English Qaballa, the system of initiatory magickal alpha-numeric correspondences revealed in the vocabulary of Liber AL vel Legis. This book presents a consistent and coherent view of magickal reality underpinned by the integrity of pure numbers, and shows the reader how easily it may be attained.
Aleister CrowleyÕs black magic masterpiece 'The Book of the Law' is the central sacred text of Thelema, written or ÔchanneledÕ by Crowley in 1904, who claimed it was dictated to him by a disembodied entity named ÔAiwassÕ while he spent the night in the King's Chamber of the Great Pyramid of Giza. 'The Book of Lies' consists of 93 chapters, each of which consists of one page of text. The chapters include a question mark, poems, rituals, instructions, and obscure allusions and cryptograms. The subject of each chapter is generally determined by its number and its corresponding Qabalistic meaning.
Liber AL vel Legis, also known as The Book of the Law, is the central sacred text of Thelema. Channeled by Aleister Crowley and transcribed by his wife Rose Edith Crowley, The Book of the Law has become a cornerstone of New Age thought. **This version exists as accompaniment to the audiobook narrated by Dennis Logan, now available on CDBaby under the same title.
The Book of the Law, the Book of Lies and Diary of a Drug Fiend
Author: Aleister Crowley
"Teach us Your real secret, Master! how to become invisible, how to acquire love, and oh! beyond all, how to make gold.” Fans of Aleister Crowley are in for a treat. Included in this first volume of Crowley's Collected Works: THE BOOK OF THE LAW – SPECIAL EDITION Dictated to Crowley in Cairo between noon and 1:00p.m. on three successive days in April 1904, The Book of the Law is the source book and key for Crowley students and for the occult in general. The holy text that forms the basis of Crowley's belief system, Thelema, was transmitted to him by the entity known as Aiwass over the course of three fateful April days in 1904. With his wife Rose as the medium for what would become known as the Cairo Working, Crowley dutifully transcribed the communications on hotel stationery. The pamphlet has since passed into occult legend. Its full title is Liber AL vel Legis, sub figura CCXX, as delivered by XCIII=418 to DCLXVI, and it is commonly referred to as The Book of the Law. Although the "messenger" of AL was Aiwass, Aiwass presents the Book as an expression of three god-forms of the three chapters, Nuit, Hadit, and Ra-Hoor-Khuit. 'The Book of the Law' has been fully optimized for the Kindle in a special edition that includes an active table of contents and an image gallery showcasing the history of occult symbolism. THE BOOK OF LIES – SPECIAL EDITION The esoteric masterpiece by one of the foremost mystics of all times. Complete with commentary and explanation for each chapter from Mr. Crowley. As Crowley describes it: "This book deals with many matters on all planes of the very highest importance. It is an official publication for Babes of the Abyss, but is recommended even to beginners as highly suggestive. Chapter 44 of the book describes the ritual named the Mass of the Phoenix. This is not a facsimile but a fully updated edition optimized for E-readers which fully replicates the authenticity of the original, down to Crowley's typos and unorthodox formatting. DIARY OF A DRUG FIEND “Her eyes glittered, her lips twittered, her cheeks glowed like fresh blown buds in spring. She was the spirit of cocaine incarnate; cocaine made flesh. Her mere existence made the Universe infinitely exciting. I was aware of nothing but a passionate craving for drugs. I wanted them physically as I had never wanted anything in my life before. I wanted them mentally, too. They, and they only, would clear my mind of its confusion, and show me a way out of this rotten mess.” Often overlooked in discussions of the great narcotics memoirs, Crowley's rarely read 1922 work deserves to be mentioned alongside such addiction classics as 'Confessions of an English Opium Eater,' 'Naked Lunch,' 'Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas' and 'Trainspotting.' Crowley's 'diary' is a hilarious, outrageous drug-fueled romp but also offers fascinating first-hand insight into early recreational heroin and cocaine use. Not long after its publication, the British press dubbed Crowley “The Wickedest Man In The World.” Follow the harrowing escapades of lovers Peter Pendragon and Louise Laleham as they embark on a drug-fueled bender through Europe and encounter the enigmatic magician who could save them. All three occult classics for one unbeatable price!
Crowley discovered that the Book of the Law held the keys to the next step in human evolution but he felt he was too near to the subject matter to judge the value of his own commentaries. This authorized version of the commentaries was produced by editor Louis Wilkinson and completed posthumously.
