Default Re: Occult, Spiritual and Esoteric (Alternative) Books

Thank you for all the wonderful Israeli Regardie books. Do you happen to have any books on Wicca, or Paganism? I am also looking for a book called Meditations on the Tarot by Anonymous.
Thanks.

Livri Luciferius (The Book of Lucifer)

Said to have been originally written in blood and on human skin sometime around the 4th century, this is the translation of the infamous Book of Lucifer.

Frater Achad: Q.B.L. or The Bride's Reception
Weiser Books | 2005-04-20 | ISBN: 1578633311 | 155 pages | PDF | 1,4 MB

In Thelemic circles, Aleister Crowley named Frater Achad his magical heir and Achad was fully expected to lead the cause of Thelemic Magick after Crowley's death--until publication of this book caused a rift between the two and Crowley began to distance himself from Achad. This is a rare and valuable book, both for its insight and circumstances. True understanding of the Qabalah and its benefit in magical practice is clearly described, and the information contained is both practical and revelatory. The circumstances surrounding it--Frater Achad's falling out with Crowley and eventual descent into apparent insanity--prove a valuable lesson and warning for individual seekers and those associated with established mystery schools.

The Zelator:A Modern Initiate Explores the Ancient Mysteries

When I began reading this book I found it a little strange and sometimes weird. It introduces many themes of an arcane nature that are unusual and unfamiliar. The book is basically a journal of Mark Hedsel's journey through the arcane word of spirituality and arcane knowledge. He was taught by many masters on different subjects, and the book itself was fascinating reading.

In order to gain the most from the book it is necessary to read it on an esoteric level rather than literally, otherwise you would dismiss it as gobbledegook. I liked the author's method of pointing you gently in the right direction, by dropping references to certain books and works, which if you were so inclined, you would follow up on. I would recommend that anyone reading this book should do so twice with a break of a few months in between. This is because the meaning of certain passages is not immediately apparent and a second reading with a fresh and developed esoteric mind is required.

I have given it four stars because I found a chapter on the moon to be bizarre and was left pretty clueless after reading it. Apart from that the book itself is fascinating.

Kenneth Grant - Aleister Crowley and the Hidden God


In this study of Aleister Crowley's system of sexual magic, Kenneth Grant reveals the occult workings of the Fire Snake or Kundalini-Goddess the cosmic power that when awakened by magical means assumes the form that Crowley called the Scarlet Woman. Grant also describes a method of dream control that Crowley and others used to establish contact with extraterrestrial and non-human beings and to prepare themselves for the realization of true cosmic consciousness.

Kenneth Grant - Gamaliel: The Diary of a Vampire

[IMG]http://i30.*************2w38d38.jpg[/IMG]

The series of Nightside Narratives by Kenneth Grant continues with a further two tales, Gamaliel: The Diary of a Vampire and Dance, Doll, Dance! The first presents the history of a woman, Vilma, who attemps to invoke unseen Intelligences but takes a wrong turn. She loses her way in the Gamaliel, the Qliphoth of Yesod, and eventually succumbs to vampiric possession. Her story unfolds extracts from her Magical Diary, the editors of which makes a horrifying discovery as the Diary closes.

Dance, Doll, Dance! is an account of Tantric Sorcery. It centres upon the fatal emanations of an idol, bequeathed to the narrator of the tale. It becomes clear from a sinister patters of events that the idol thrives on blood and sexual rites. The narator is enmeshed in a nefarious web of intrigue and allure and his energies are vampirised, culminating in a cataclysmic sexual rite based on the Dakshina Kalika Yantra.

Kenneth Grant - Outside the Circles of Time

[IMG]http://i26.*************24q4n4l.jpg[/IMG]

The fifth volume in the series of Grant’s Typhonian Trilogies, this is a work that covers an extremely wide area and exposes (to quote from the cover of the 1980 edition) "a network more complex than was ever imagined: a network not unlike H.P. Lovecraft’s dark vision of sinister forces lurking at the rim of the universe". The book is most famous, perhaps, for showcasing the work of Soror Andahadna, a contemporary Priestess of Maat whose work had parallels with that of Frater Achad many decades previously. Some Thelemites have problems with the Aeon of Maat. As far as they are concerned, each Aeon lasts 2,000 years; we are at the beginnings of the Aeon of Horus, so Maat is a way off yet. They may have little hesitation therefore in echoing Crowley’s famous retort to the young Grant when pressed: “Maat can wait!”. However, the following passage from Outside the Circles of Time puts the matter in a much more interesting light:

Myths and legends are of the past, but Maat should not be thought of in terms of past or future aeons. Maat is present now for those who, knowing the ‘sacred alignments’ and the ‘Gateway of Inbetweenness’, experience the Word ever coming, ever emaning, from the Mouth, in the ever new and ever present forms that are continually being generated from the mystical Atu or House of Maat, the Ma-atu...

But the book is about much more than the Aeon of Maat. It is a potent weaving of a host of apparently diverse strands into a single, broad and powerful current. Though Grant’s volumes in the series have each a unique flavour, Outside the Circles of Time seemed to herald a jump into a different dimension.

Kenneth Grant - Against the Light

[IMG]http://i31.*************30syclg.jpg[/IMG]

Against the Light is a rip-roaring arcane text, two-fisted occultism. Read as novel or as magic treatise, it will fail to satisfy, having neither the neat structure of fiction nor the compelling credibility of fact. Read as an incredible chimaeric hybrid of the two, and thus a striking comment on the strange interrelationship between them, it could conversely be seen as a bold, decadent masterpiece, a communiqué from reason’s furthest reaches, and beyond. It’s to be hoped that the response of the occult book-buying public is sufficient to encourage Starfire Publishing to release any subsequent “Nightside Narratives”, granting us further access to Grant’s logbook as he presses on with his safari into nightmare. Magic’s Mr Kurtz seeking his Heart of Darkness. As a bulletin from that internal, fictive dark, Against the Light reminds us that the shadow holds its own form of illumination. Highly recommended for those with an interest in the point where the extremes of magic meet the furthest, most precarious edge of fantasy and fiction. This is Hardcore.

Robert Svoboda - Aghora: At the Left Hand of God

[IMG]http://i25.*************5mjtbp.jpg[/IMG]

The Aghora trilogy have been embraced world-wide for their frankness in broaching subjects generally avoided and their facility for making the 'unseen' real. We enter the world of Vimalananda who teaches by story and living example.

This is an interesting book. It reminds me of Walt Whitman's line that its not the book but a piece of the man himself that you touch when you read it. The writing was very clear, accessible, and left me with the impression that I was in the actual presence of Vimalananda. I could smell him.
Having said that, this is the story of a Hindu shaman/sorcerer. Like a shaman he has powers, communes with spirits, is a healer and something of a joker too. Vimalanand has a great wit. And sometimes when he's in the middle of a serious story all I could think was, this guy's trying to pull my leg. You could almost see him winking at you in between the lines.

As an approach to God, this is not for me. It's a very dangerous path, physically, psychologically and spiritually. As a westerner, I just listened. I didn't get the urge to go out and try this stuff myself. There are enough warnings in the book to that effect as well.

http://rapidshare.com/files/92498444/Robert_Svoboda_-_Aghora.pdf

Robert Svoboda - Aghora II: Kundalini

[IMG]http://i31.*************24zeh77.jpg[/IMG]

Book 2 of the trilogy explores the kundalini, the force of forces. Tantra, mantra, the sacred fire, chakras and consciousness. Written in the personable form of Vimalananda's storytelling and recounting of life's episodes we are able to truly enter the invisible realms.

We meet again Vimalananda, the Skotch-guzzling, chain-smoking, horse-racing, corpse-sitting tantrika of "Aghora: At The Left Hand of God" fame. Anyone remotely interested in tantra, yoga or Indian philosophy should read this book, if only for the marvelous allegorical interpretations of the Vedas and Vedangas that you may not find elsewhere. For example, Indra is the Lord of the Senses (Indrayi); and the esoteric Ramayana is a story of Hanuman/Prana's crossing the sea/chakras to the muladhara/Lanka where Sita/Kundalini lies captive, hostage to sense-deluded Ravana. Some stories are best taken with a pinch of salt--a pinch to make sure you're awake; salt to learn the alchemical lessons: for example, turning the sadhu's sandals to ash by mere touch (holy smoke!) or judging the jnana of a saint by the size of his feces (BS!). There is some question whether Vimalananda "really" existed or is only "imaginary" but, to me Vimalananda is as real and influential as Thrice-blessed Hermes, Hamlet, or don Juan de Mateo. Plus, the good doctor teaches how to raise shakti from Svadishthana to Anahata.

http://rapidshare.com/files/92500677/Robert_Svoboda_-_Aghora_2.pdf

Robert Svoboda - Aghora III: The Law of Karma

[IMG]http://i30.*************2ihqohc.jpg[/IMG]

In this third volume of the Aghora trilogy the Aghori Vimalananda uses the Bombay racetrack as a metaphor for the ultimate game of life.

Reading Aghora: The Law of Karma reminded me of how desperately the west needs a street wise yogi like Vimalananda-one who doesn't sugar coat things with New Age cliches or con their followers like so many gurus-gone-corrupt have, particularly in the USA. I enjoyed Vimalananda's sequeways from acute observations on horse racing to the esoteric dimensions of tantric yoga that rarely reach the light of day, particularly in the west. After reading this book, I further developed the ability to more accurately read the karma of people by looking at their auras-most useful in gaining a deeper understanding of what motivates people to do the things they do,. what fears, aversions they have, etc. I recommend this book along with the previous titles as well. Svobhoda was most fortunate to have crossed paths with this unusual yogi indeed.

Read them all and compare them. Many secrets can be learned from comparative research. Most detailed description and comments on Emerald Tablets are included in Manly P. Hall's "The Secret Teachings of All Ages" page 472 in pdf version. I have it on first page of this thread available for download.

Translation provided in Manly Hall's book is from Dr. Sigismund Bacstrom's, the great rosicrucian initiate. This is not even close to the oldest translation, but it does contain some tenets other don't have.

Edouard Blitz - Ritual and Monitor of the Martinist Order (1896)

Doctrine and Rituals of the Martinist Order.

About Martinism:

Martinism is a form of mystical or esoteric Christianity, which envisions the figure of Christ as "The Repairer" who enables individuals to attain an idealised state such as that in the Garden of Eden before the Fall. As an informal practice, Martinism dates back to late 18th Century France. In the late 19th Century it was established in France and elsewhere as a formal order meeting in lodges. During the 20th century there has also been a revival of some of the practices which pre-date Martinism proper and which directly inspired it.

Martinism involves masonic-type rituals with Rosicrucian and Kabbalistic tenets, practices and symbolism.
