Official Monthly Bulletin of Or~o Templi Orientis

Vol. I, No,1 January, ,1981e. V. An. LXXVle.n.

Do wlxAt tbou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

Welcome -~o t he ' 1st, Issue of the Magicka1 Link an O.T,O. monthly Bu1- laton. First of all this does not take the place of the 0, T. 0 .. Newsletter; but instead is an added service we want to give our members, So they are up t.o date with whats happening among the different groups within the order. This will be done through monthly reports from various' Camps, 'Chapters and Lodges and Reports from the Supreme Counsil of the 0,'1'.0. and the Board of Bishops of the Ecclesiae Gnosticae Catho!icae. We will also hear·from.time to time from other groups forming for various purposes within the Order such as the 11th degree and diifer~nt groups working on Ritual and other special areas in magick

But, this is only apart of the purpose of the Magickal Link. We also want to be a sounding board for the membership through a column where we can print letters. Also there will be advertisment/notice column where members can request needs free of cost. See the heading 'Member to Member' for further details.

The O.t.O Newsletter will keep'on publishing its wonderful informative articles ~nd should be out in January if Bill gets the help he needs. We hopp that the Magickal Link can fill the gap so sorely needed in bringing members in 'closer communication with each othero

The Magical Link will also carry notices of teaching materials, tapes and books available from the Order.

The latest project at Grand Lodge is to get the Guild system gOing. Crowley recommended this highly in the ~Blue Equinox". So do I. It is an excellent system of latera 1 (hori zanta 1) energy man; festation. as opposed to vertical structuring. For this purpose have cr~ated the GUILD OF DRAMA &

THAUMA'rURY"

Obviously thi~ places

heavy emphasis on dramatic ritual,

both group and individual.

Un for-

tunately I haye not yet found the secretarial help needed to pro-

vide communications,

If there are

any vDluh~eers, please ~et me know.

GNOSTIC CATHOLIC CHURCH COUNCIL-ECCLESIAE GNOSTICAE CATHOLICAE

On Oct 30, 19BO the first annual meeting of the Council of Bishops was held. The·main purpose of this meeting was to elect the new board who decide upon general policy and oversee the operation of the Church. The new board of Directors are: Bishop Lon M" DuQuette, Bishop Andrea Lucedonia, Bishop William Hei.drick, Bishop Jeffery Price, Bishop Rusty Sporer and Bishop Michele Ripple with our patriarch Grady L. MCMurtry leading the

. team~

One~f the matters discussed at this annual meeting of all the Bishops was the need for communication among the clergy. not just the board. Many of them did not realize the simularity of problems they each confront within their diocese, QUestions like how to raise money etco

One way in which we are trying to open up this cornrnunication is to ask for suggestions for the EGC logo which will reflect not only our GNOSTIC heritage but our link with O.T.O,

Fenris Encampment is temporarly bebween addresses.

---~-

The Fenris Encampment was charted

on 5 July, 1990, e.v. by the hand and seal of Qur Mos~ Holy King & Caliph, H. A. 777. Fenris was creat€d to provide a divergent stylistic and esthetic approach

to Thelema, mainly througfi a restoration of the Sumerian systems of Magick (reconstructed and realigned to conform with the Dictation of Aiwaz), and an exploration of certain esoteric techniques revealed by Mr. Wm. S. Burroughs. We are also interested

in the promulgation of Thelema

via the marketplace. The Order must be strengthened: It must ha.ve gold.

At this time the Fenris Encampment is not open to written communication from the 0uter; however, this situation will soon change. Interested parties would do well, in the meanwhile, to give a cursory peru~al to the required reading material listed

as follows:

NECRONOMICON (edited by "Simon") published in hardcover by Schlangekraft, Inc. 233 Spr!:E.9____§_!_.,_ NY, NY lQOl3- -$5n.OO in paperback from Avon, $2.75

THE BOOK OF BREEETHING, By Wm. S. Burroughs, Blue Wind Press

PORT OF SAINTS, by Wm. S. Burroughs Blue Wind Press

We' would also suggest a thorough examination of all available comment on Hexagram 49 of the I CHING a working familiarity with the world-wide mythology of SHAPESHIFTERS, and an in-depth study of the Norse myth of Fenris.

Malleus Mal.flcar~t· 1484

The Rite of Mitylene XID Ordo Templi Orientis was chartered and sealed with the ring of Ankh-f-n-Khonsu on October 12, 1980 era vulga.ris, "the F~as_t for Life (by a certain reckoning; of the year LXXVI of the aeon. It is an independant and experimental Rite within the Soverign Sanctuary of the Gnosis Xlo-whose formUla is parallel to

that of the Rite of Shiraz, yet, as the Prophet would say, "after another mannez "; Its formula is specific and was delivered

to me personally and directly upon my own realization of the Rite. It must come to each potential initiate in this same way;

it is a way known of no man. It is my

right and my will to raise otihez s to full psssession of the Xlo degree in time, dependant only upon their understanding of the degree and their communication of that understanding to me. I have already raised one other initiate of the Or-

der into the Rite; others of the first degree or higher (there are other necessary qualifications of which I will

not speak openly) will be considered

upon proper application. Decisions on initiation will be arbitrated solely

by the Rite of Mitylene and have absolutely no bearing on the initiates standing or status in the general plan

of the Order. The Rote was named for

the ancient holy city builtlby our magickal ancestresses as a fortress of freedom; to this end do I dedicate my

own initiation into this degree; may

it be a fortress and true Sanctuary

for those who dare to find it, in the

ncu.n_e of Babalon.

. Official Monthly Bulletin No.2

of Or~o Templi Ori antis

February, 1981 e. v , An. LXXVI e.71 •

Do what tbou wilt shall be the whole of the La'W.

Welcome to the 2nd issue of the

MAGICKAL LINK" We are still in the process of ironing out its kinks. I ask that chapter Reports, if possible be typed with a dark ribbon and in 3\" columns; then we will not have to retype them. There is still a discussion

going about whether this Bulletin should be a monthly or bi-monthly. This will

depend upon how much there is to report wi t.hi.n the areas covered by this paper"

Deadline on all reports, letters and ads for the Bulletin will be the 10th of the month. We would like to hear

from the general membership as well as the Chapters on their wants and needs.

I have just returned from my latest Eastern tour. It was far out. In my wartime career, I have hit many a beach, but this was one of the strangest. On the second day into the drop, I had a radio 'tape interview with Margot Adler (author of DRAWING DOWN THE MOON). Jim Wasserman was responsible for that.

Then vince tented a suite in the Park plaza in Manhattan and I was announced as the guest of honor. other people present were Kenneth Anger, Bishop Simon (of Necronomicon fame) and Bob Wang

(who drew the cards for Regardie's Golden Dawn Tarot). I thought it was quite a compliment for all of us.

The subject of my color slide lecture was GROUP RITUAL, using recent slides of the RITES OF EULEUSIS done by Chandria as the primary vehicle of exposure. The results were impressive"

OTO SUPREME COUNCIL RESOLUTIONS AFFECTING THE MEMBERSHIP

Resolution 188

Minimum times spent in Minerval is 9 months and the mi.n i mum time ·spent in

Ist degree is 9 months" The minimum time in the 2nd degree is one year, with the exception being only granted in writing by the Caliph's signature. No taci t agreement to advance unde r ·these minimum periods can be accepted.

Resolution 1 :39

To enter 4th degree a candidate needs the usual requirements of good report. Also, either a full completion of LIBER MeLI requirements, or a special recognition of outstanding service to t.he order. He/she must have one year minimum as a third and reasonable adherence to the oaths taken in the previous degrees and sponsorship by two members of IVth(4th) degree or up.

Resolution 190

A candidate to enter the 5th degree needs the usual requirements of good report and full accomplishment of

LIBER MCLI requirements unless exemption made !Jy a majority of the Supreme Councilor the Caliph or the three chief officers in common agreement.

One yea~ ~nimum as 4th degree is adequate to promote only if passed unanimously by the supreme Council. The candidate will need two 5th degree sponsors or higher, one of whom must

be a IXth degree. Reasonable adherence to the oaths is also exgected.

Re,:oolution 191

In the event·a member of the OoT.O. having 2 checks returned from the bank for payment of dues and other fees owed to the Order that such a person should

be notified regarding the matter and informed that unless such checks are immediately made good, no personal checks for over the amount of $25.00 shOUld

be sent. Money orders or s i.mi.La r payment should be made instead. Another violation in the form of anot.he r bounced check constitutes reason for summary suspension. of the member's rights and priviledges by the decision of the G.T.G. acting alone.

BROCKEN MOUNTAIN LODGE 178 Cosey Beach Ave.

East Haven, CT. 06512

On the first Saturday of every

if 50 desired. Du ri.nq the course of

the previous month it is suggested that everyone write at least two pages on th.eir own feelings. or i.deas pertaining to any verse from the BOOK OF 'I'HE LAW. Your creativity can be chan~neled in any direction you so desire with either a short written piece, a picture or painting, music or virtually anything.

but always pertaining to LTBER AL in

some manner. Copies of your work are requested for the Lod.ge files so please bring such.

LASIAL Mother Lodg~, Box· 357 N.Y., N.Y. 10274

Aside from initiations, LASTAL activities presently center on group education.

The object is to develop in students an understanding of TI1elemic Magick as it is presently understood, as well as the exploration of other systems whose integration into one's own personal work may prove useful.

To this end, LASTAL, in cooperation with Tahuti Chapter (now Lodge), performed a new ritual: Liber CCLXXVII vgl Spirae (written by Frater O:.G:. IX ) at the close of the ~mgickal Childe Bookstore's October 26th Samhain Festival. This ritual is an example of non-qaba l.i st.Lc ~.agick ru1d is effective in raiSing the consciousness of the observers,as well as the performers 1 .beyond sectarian levels through a celebration of the O.T.O. structure described in 1}le Equinox I II #L

1\ course in Ki development is being given by Robert Sisselman rrr". Creative meditation and emp i r i cn l JVI.agick are beIng taught by Elizabeth Dowling m". An ongoing course in Thelemic Magick is being

gi ven free to se lec t students (those who make this pleasure a chore are dutY-Jound to assist the instuctor to pay his dues).

Plans are in the works for LASTAL to develop into a Lodge of Perfection within the next year. The purpose is to create a body which will practice techniques of Magick based on the formula of the IyC,

as well as to begin experiments through

which the potentials 'of upper-Degree bodies might be explored. This may aid in the growth of the present Order toward the mature structure proposed in The Equinox.

Oasis initiations will B€ performed as needed to fulfill commitments to men~ers still in Oasis degrees as Hell as to encourage, 'growth of new Oasis Lodges in other locations, Syllabus workshops

shall continue "0 be taught so that

worthy candidates for IV might be found. A new encampment is currently in the plan-

ning stages, ','

The Gnostic tlass has been celebrated twice at the Gardena headqUarters of Babalon-Therion, 'and dramatic readings

P.O. Box 2303 Berkeley, CA 94702 U.S.A.

Thelema Lodge is the Administrative center of the Order, world-wide. Bucks stop here - a point' that ·several of the other Lodge Masters have found to be less than ideal. We are working on a partial solution, related to an unusual source of Lrrcome , I can't disclose much just now, but the next issue of the Magickal Link will have some financial news of interest to us all.

Initiations are held regularly at the Grand Lodge and at other Lodges around the Country. Steps toward international initiations ha.ve been continually frustrated for ODe reason or another, but there is a solution. Are you a IIIrd Degree with travel plans? Would you like to see the Order grow? Contact 'the Grand Lodge for details.

The mundane year ended with the usual series of parties, car break-downs and general good times. _We are all res ted

up now from the rigors of vacations and the extremes of the Saturnalia, No

serious accidents have been reported

among O.T.O. members in Magick workings, but we had a narrow escape Dec. 26th

during a IInd Deg r e.e initiation, With-

out violating secrecy of initiation, I

can disclo~e a bit for the future benefit of Emirs involved in the lInd Degree rites. Brothers and Sisters of the Oasis! Use caution and moderation in your deeds. Remember that the malice or humor of another may rebound upon you. Soror A.L., Emir of the lInd, drank too deaply of

the werl. We fished her out along with

the C*d*t. Somewhat irregular, but rather interesting as a variation.

The O.T.O_ Newsletter is slowing mOVing from the back burner toward the front of the, stove, We wi.ll be finishing most

of the preparation by the end of January" Then it's a matt"er of printing, collating and mailing. I'm shooting for February.

No~-profit status for O.T.O. and EoG.C. is well along. The filing for tax-exemptions at state and feder"!,l levels has started" One by-product of all this

will be full financial disclosure in the 1112 Newsletter. .Ie have prepaired reports in considerable detail for the las t three years of operations, and may be able

to report the year just ending by press time. This will bore the membership to tears for the most part, but It's a bit

of information that needs to be in the

hands of every member of the Ordero One problem that most organizations face is apathy. o.t .o. is no exception 0 We havea Iways b ad a ful.1 rheering_ section on matters of goals, fancy titles and glory. What keeps the, Order on the plane is work. Work is not all that popular. These financial reports tell the story for those with the determination to read them.

We're here and we are going to stay.

0.100. has made it through the stormy

period of financial luck. It looks

like things are gradually go~ng to get stable more and more as time advances.

This is no place for extended editorial, but there are some questions that need to be raised for discussion around the Order. We at Grand Lodge have the advantage and Lhe disadvantage of getting a continuous picture of the effect of Thelema on different subcultures around the country.

Reports from Lodges, Camps and Chapters often mention local situations that are quite a surprise to USo Without mentioning the places where these problems are greatest, I ~ould like to suggest things that need attention. Check these out where you live and in the group that you may be meeting witho Let's work on this together: 10 The status of Women in the Order," Some regions of the U.S.Ao exh Lbdt a very polar male-female culture. Other nations show similar extremso I refer to the wife = slave syndromeo This manifests in a wide range from forced kitchen servent to induced fear of going out alone. We need

to continue to shake off the old Aeon here, Love and respect need to be taken together. Women and Me'n ar e not "separate' but equal." No two people are identicaJ.. Gender should not dictate roles to the extent it is now doing it. 2. Pax Templi, the Peace of the Temple" There has been a gradual improvement in this area, but a lot more work is needed in most of the areas of the Order's operations. Let's get going on the

spirit of the IIIrd Degree. 3. Practica, being practical. This is heavy venom.

Too little and you never have anything

real to say about your lifeo Too much

and you are a souless freak. More of our members suffer from too little than too much. What is urgent? What is to be taken with a grain of salt? Where do ideals

have to give way before methods? Where

do means have to be cut back to protect

the worth of ends? These questions need personal answers. Quite frankly, the

Great Work doesn't wor.k Witho~t address of this problem of how to live on Earth.

4 .. Tolerance. About Liber az and all those rights you are .r.e ady to kill te-pres-erve. Those aren't your rights. They belong to the other guy and gal. If you zilsh somebody else on one of these things, be advised that these are the sorts of things that people do kill for. These can be

your rights, if you understand that nobody can have them unless everybody has them. That's what I understand of the lInd Degree, That's why I expect to create and live

and make as I will. 5. Why all these

off the wall questions from a Lodge report? It's in the nature of Grand Lodge to do things like this 0 Wha~ is the nature of your Lodge, Chapter or Camp? Type it up

and pack it in in time for the next Magickal L'ink , Let's have some views with the news. For those who have a lot more views than news, how about a gues t edi torial for the

O.T.O. Newsletter? I know you haven't seen it lately, but it's here at Grand Lodge and ·it's a way for you to air your feelings in letter and article.

Next on the Board of Directors of O.T.O.:

We are dealing with routine business much of the time, but some of the things on the coming ajenda are of wide interest for the membership. I, Establishment of uniform embelishments on robes for the Degrees.

2. Guidelines for arbatrati.on of disputes between members, 3. Guidelines for the IIIrd Degree anti-slander oath in practice. 4. The Crowley copyrights. 5. The abuse of the name of the Order by fake "O.I.O," groups. 6. Aquisition of archives and provision for access,at distant points.

7. European initiation and national lodges.

8. Things we are missing,but you have thought of? Join the foot in mouth club 0 We need more involvement at all levels.

Next on the E.G.C. Board· of Directors:

This body is still relying heavily on O.T.O. for meeting and ceremonial space. There is a diff·erence between O.T.O. and the E.G.C. Do you know it? The O.T.O.

had a formal beginning under that name

in 1902 e. v , with traditions trailing off toward antiquity. The E.G.C. is 300 years old under various forms of "Wandering Bishopry". The Church needs to work

on active involvement, fund raising, general growth beyond the O.T.O. and formal rites. Baptism is coming up

for discussion. We need an emblem for

the Church. Talk it over with the neares t Lodge Master of O.T.O. Most but not all are involved in the leadership of both

Church and Order on the level of Master! Mistress of Lodge, Camp and Chapter of O.T.O. At present, the Order opens "Temples" for the use of the Church.

These are places of meeting under the auspices of the Order for the Church and for the Performance of the Gnostic Mass. The Church needs its own independant centers, called "Pantheons". Membership in the Church is simpler than in the Order, "Want to learn more about it?

At the back of this issue of the Magickal Link, you will find the current calandar

of event for February at Grand Lodge.

Many of these classes are being taperecorded. If'you have partic:ular interests in a class you can't attend, drop us a line about, access to a recorded version.

Did you get this copy of the Magickal Link by the 1st of Feb.? For Hoor's sake tell us if you didn't ( if you are in North America). We have just started

to use a bulk mailing permit and we have no idea how long it takes to get the mail to you this way. If you are in another part of the world, would you like air mail for the Magickal Link? Might cost you; but if you are planning a visit to the USA we will be glad to send you a copy by air without ·extra charge to inform you of

the activities at the time of your planned visit. It's regular air mail that needs

a surcharge.

The Knights form an irreversable link to the O. T, 0., the Ca liph and

to the Eccles"ia Gnostica Catholica. The latter bond is due to the fact that a majority of the CUrrent knights are Bishops in the Church. Therefore, under usual circumstances, only those who are IO or higher in the Order will be considered for knighthood. But it

Babalon Coven presently works out

of Grand Lodge and meets publically every Full Moon. Basically the group is into lifting Wicca out of the dark ages by modifying the basic rituals into a more Thelemic format. Requirments for initiation includes active membership in the Order, but non-initiates are admitted to certain meetings. The Crux of Sabalon Coven's interests lie in worship of Egyptian Lunar Dieties. Most of the rituals performed are original works of the members. For turtner information

on initiations and scheduling we

may be contacted care of Grand Lodge Any and all Thelemites are welcome, (especially musicians!)

ATTENTION ASSOCIATES

I've noticed a lot of mail coming to us from States where we have no lodges or camps. Anyone who is an associate in one of these states who would like

to contact others in their states should put a notice in this Bulletin. Our address lists are confidential so we cannot send them out. It may be that there are enough associates desiring initiation in one area who could arrange for travel for the Caliph to come to their area for initiatory purposes.

I've noticed, for instance a .lot of

mail from Florida and know if all those folks communicated they might have e.nough for camp or chapter status_

In spite of the problems work is being done to be of general assistance to local groups - ie should they need m~iling labels, form letters prepared, copies of rituals, materials from our archives, or, of course, books. 93 Publishing will continue to copyright Crowley's works on the 0" T.O.; and is taking Grady"s proposals for specific projects under advisement.

Thelema Lodge is the Administrative center of Ordo Templi Orientis ~orld-wideo If you need to contact the Caliph, the Grand Treasurer General or the. Grand Secretary General this is the place to send your letter. Addresses and phones are lis·ted on

the contact page in this issue of the Magickal Link, and on the Calender of. of monthly events a.t Grand Lodge 0

Last month, this column suggested . that unusual sources of income were opening up for the Order. By unusual, we don't mean the advisory bills that are qo i nq out to remind members of ove·~-due accounts-that is a sad but necessary expedient. The fact is, that the current "accounts due" of

the Order total about $2,800_00 in unpaid dues and r enewa Ls . If you

have been putting off a dues peymenx, you might get a bill. After all, it's a dues paying organization, always

bas been.

The unusual source is in a legal area. SOIDe many months ago, a book called "Ghost Story" was published in the United States and later in many other countries _ ~le have been

in touch with the publishers and other involved parties. The problem with this book has to do with the use. of the·name of the Order in the story line. O,T.O. was accused of a number of un.savo ry doings and give·n a rather bad rap. We don't profess to kno~

~hy the author settled on the Order to further the excitement of his efforts, but we have taken the usual steps. Negotiations for a damages payment to the Order of $20,000.00

are no~ in progress. The amount is more-or-less agreed upon by both

the Order and the others in the case, but ~e ~xpect the usual rough spots with the wr Lt t.en settlement papers •. The matter may take months and may take an unexpected turn. Since our Order is the only group using the name O.T.O. ~hich has been able to prove in court that Crowley's O .. T.O. and this O.T .. O. are the same organization, we may be involved in tracking down other problems of this kind over the years to come.

The Officers here at Grand Lodge don't feel any too hapy· about going

to legal efforts to protect the Good name of O.T.O., but there may be times when it may have to happen again.

$20,000.00 translates into about $10,000.00 ready cash after expenses and security reservations. The IXth Degree, most of the heads of bodies

of the Order and of cours", the directors are presently engaged in study

of the best means of using a possible award or settlement of this amount. It's about equal to one year's gross income for the Order. We invite suggestions from the membership. It

is very important that no sort of mistake happens here. If, for example, some of such an amount ~as used to fund a new program, the program would have to be self-supporting

after one year. Anything else would

se 1 f-dest.ruct! Capital improvements and publishing are being considered. Grants to Lodges, Chapters and Camps

in accord with need and number of people served are also being considered.

Otherwise, it's been a normal

sort of time here at the Grand Lodge. The classes go on and so do the initiations. The Order is in better shape this year than it was last year.

Attendence is expected to drop at O.T.O. Grand Lodge functions for the next month or so. Bad, you say? Not at all. Most of the local membership is involved in one way or another in the Rites of Eleusis ( see the notice in this issue of the ML). Rehersals often take up time that might be spent in attending other O.T.O. functions.

If you are planning a visit to the Grand Lodge, March and April are good times to consider. You will have a chance to see the Rites and to participate in the Thelemic Holy Days.

Do what thou wilt shall be the Whole of the Law.

Tft.., f'ol~C5W1ng. is a brief rundown of recent and'ongoing Lodge activi t'ies:

(1) INITIATIONS: Application may'be mad~ for D· through IV· Initiation. Candidates are requested to write for information. Most recently, two Minerval Initiations occurred on Feb. 14. Anyone who

has taken Initiation in Syracuse and who is not reporting to anothe~ L~dge is requested to write or report in person at least three times per ,year.

(2) LODGE REORGANIZATION I The emphasiS of Lodge aotivities is shifting from a ·social club" approach to one stressing.individual initiative and discovery of the transpersonal traditions of the Order. A guild B~stem is being in,tituted, based on the model developed by Heru Ra Ha Lodge. Two guilds are currently functioning. Drama and Publioations.

(3) CORRESPONDENCE. ReorganiZation of our Clerkhouse provides us the ability to respond promptly to letters from interested Thelemites. A priority is long dista~oe Initi-

ation arrang~m~nts. •

(4) PUBLI CAT I ONS I The lon9- aWaiteCl-6th issue of our journal, KAABA. is in preparation. It will contain the complete text of the Crowley essay on Atlantis (Liber LI). Pre-publicatio.n orders are being accepted at $5 per copy. After publication the price will be higher. Projects for upcoming issues include the Paris Workings and the Diary of Leah Hirsil1-. Back issues 1113, 4, & 5 are available at' $2 eaoh.

(5) A possible visit by the Caliph is planned for later Spring .•

(6) The Gnostic Catholic Church is active here. Write for information on presentations of the Gnostic Mass, and on plans for Baptisms, Ordinations, etc.

, Love is the laW', love under will.

In response to the letters of inquiry about the Knights of Baphomet,. this article is addressed. Two parts of the vow which

the Knights t a k e , defens e of the Ca liph' s Honor and protection of the Secrets of

the O. T. 0., are self-evident". However,

it has been written (and therefore assumed to be true?) that the age of chivalry is

dead. It; this is true, the principles of Chivalry are perhaps lost to us. It is to this part of the vow-that w,e will discuss.

The knights of yore were first of all fighting meri. "I'lrey were that arm of the army upon which the s uc c e s s of the ba ttl e rested. The foot s ol.di e r and archer comprised the bulk of the army, but it wa s the knight who wa s most mobile, being mounted, and most armored. As such, he was the most feared of the combatants on the field. The knight also was the only armed man who actually trained for combat and devoted his life to battle. Off the field he had little use, save for the tournaments and jousts, again, the staged battle.

Our present day concept of knightly behaviour res ts with the romantic courtly gra c e s , the kissing of the ladies hand and such. This behaviour wa S common not only to the knight but a Is a to all of the "nobility" or the ps eudonobles. The r ef o re it is not proper to view this "courtly manner" as the sale atHbute

of the Knights of Ba phom et regarding the exercise of chivalry. Not only is it not

the exclusive "property" of knightly manner, but, today there are many a lovely lady which would take a dim view of the display of the

cha uv irn s tic tr e a t rn.e nt which gra ced the court. The Knights should display more than this, they should emulate their predes SOl'S, the Knights T'ern pl a r ,

The Templars, while on the Crusades in the "Holy Land" were also exposed to the culture of the eastern mind, During the day they would fight to the death against the Sa r a ca n, then pasture their horses in the same fields as their enemy. Pu r the r , they would rrre e t and discuss the previous battle, enjoy the

has. pita lit,Y of the enem¥' scamp. break

bread with them and ~ven took pa rt in the mystical secrets of the Sa ca c an ,

This ac;ceptance of the beliefs of the enerny found in the taprestry of the Templars is the particular type of chivalry the OKB will develop. "Every man and every woman is a star. " (Libel' A] 1:3). As the article in the

Ia st is s ue of the Ma gical Link pointed out" we have no right to force another person or to impose our will on another. It is of

interest to notice the association of Zain (Sword) with Key 6 of the Tarot, coupled with our "battle cry" DO WHAT THOU WILT SHALL BE THE WHOLE; OF THE

LAW. and the co r r e Il a ry LOVE IS THE LA W, LOVE UNDER WILL. Could it be

that this is the sword of the Kni ght s ?

encouraged to correspond with either Sir Rusty Sporer, 35023 Lido Blvd., Newark CA 94560

The Supreme Council of the Order ( Board of Directors ) is also reached through this address.

As usual, we have had a busy month there at Grand Lodge,

The first results of the "advisory billing" are in, This was actually the first audit-· billing of personal accounts

we have been able to perform at Grand Lodge, All told, there are more than 300 active accounts. Nearly $~,800.00 in accounts receivable presently exist,

The billing was started in January and has reached last

names beginning with "N". No

more recient audit of the accounts has been made, owing to time, About half of the accounts receivable have no known address, The better part of $500.00 has been received already in payments, In some cases, as much as three years had gone by without dues being sent in. There has been apparent misunderstanding with regard to the obligation of annual~payment of dues in a

number of cases. Faults and .errors in the bills have appeared in several areas. Most of these

ave been traGed to report procedure errors at the local bodies" If you have received a billing

for a debt you have p~id, please notify the Grand Treasurer General of that fact, Include receipts and m~ntion dates. Also contact your initiating body for confir~ mation of the payment, These

problems are most severe in New York State and in Utah, Other areas are less effected. Measures are being taken to insure against a repet it ion of t.he ae problems,

In most instances, it's just

a lack of understanding in basic records keeping and reporting, This problem has been complicated by many changes in personnell,

by over-work both in the locals and at Grand Lodge and, in a few officers no longer with us, in the area of refusal to record or follow the rules, These rules are made to protect the individual members against abuses of their rights, That has not always been understood.

It must also be said that on the whole the local officers of the initiating bodies have done

a fine job, While learning the necessary skills and while being occupied with necessary personal business, some officers have had lapses, If you were caught in such a lapse, take heart. We will give the benefit of the doubt to the individual member every time our records are challenged with any sort of sensable arguement.

We will investigate to see if the problem can be avoided in the future, and to see if the point made has any basic merit, but

we won't take sanctions unless ther~ is no response or unless

the response made is provably incorrect.

It's time to get some dialog

on the subject of working off

dues and the like. Many of our Brothers and Sisters are not in

the strongest financial condition. This problem is usually not serious for Minerval or First Degree, because $30,00 just isn't that

much for a serious Thelemite cO

dig up over a year. When the middle and higher degrees are reached, the tab does' go up.

Some of us can't make the dues

and the fees. There is no stigma to a person not having money.

There must be a way to set up

a uniform method of working off the debt. The law of the land requires that such work must be agreed in advance on value in $. The laws also require that the

work must be monitored and reported as $ income and $ expense. O.T.O. has requirements on volunteer help and duties of officers - these can't count toward dues and fees, What can

be counted, with that prior agreement, is work beyond duty. Because unskilled labor is involved, and because the Order must have actual funds for general operations, definite values must

be set in aeeord-with public

value in the market-place for similar work. I suggest for general work, an equivalent of $3,00 per hour, For piece-work, two single-spaced low-error pages of typed work to be equal to $3,00. Other piece-work, such as collation and fabrication to be assessed

at commercial equilvalent value,

In normal cases, only one~year's debts, plus past debts should be handled this way, Perhaps we

could also set a standard of

income for qualification for this manner of payment, with different levels for different sizes of debt. It should be possible for any member in good standing to advance to the point of IXth Degree no matter what the level of personal wealth, or hardship in finances. Let's have some reactions to this set of proposals, This is urgent, some of-our people are ai;tile

point of dropping out just because of low income. We can't have that! If you have problems, yourself, don't indulge in slavish false pride or arrigant self-delusion.

Do something about it! Get a job when you can, but don't let pride or embarrisment cut you off from your Brothers and Sisters. Speak

up on solutions now! _

If you need work done, and expect to pay for it, consider your Brothers and Sisters for the job, Do not hire O,T,O, members out of pity, but if they are ready,willing and able to do

what you want to pay for anyway. If the member can't do the job, but demands a job anyway , tell him or her the truth. Be careful. but be open to the idea.

The Order needs the bread, but there must not be a cutting off

of those who don't have it, If you need to use a work-it-out deal, please consider adding some free time too. That will make up for the free time someone volunteered to make it possible for you to work your way through.

The election of directors for the Supreme Council is,a week

away at this writing. The Council will probably have to limit activity to minor business and urgent stuff until mid April, when the final results of the election are in.

All IXth Degree Members have an obligation to participate at least by proxy if not in person. This only happens every other year,

and it is vital to be in on it.

No action yet on the Ghost-Story final papers. The present offer will be discussed at the member's meeting, and a poll taken as to

the wishes of the members present, both IXth and all others.

Don't forget the Thelemic Holy-days in April.

COMMITTEE FOR THE RESEARCH & IMPLEMENTATION OF O.T.O. INITIATORY RITUALS:

By the Authority of the Office of Emir & at the suggestion of the Grand Secretary General a Committee has been created and is now ga.thering research reI:avant to the duly apprpriate implementation of O.T.O. Initiatory rituals for the 0 thru VII.lt is Our position that the proper performance of the 'Mystery Plays' is a Key to the continuity

of this 'transpersonal' tradition.

It is Our assessment that in some instances,greater care must be taken in respect to the rituals. we therefore request that the Corporate

Board of a.ToO. (Supreme Council), conSl.der Our recommendation to postpon,e any Initiations past III until a period of approx.60 days

l.0 order f~r this -Committee to report its findings to the Carp. Board of a.'T.O.We feel ;that :i!n 'a short time we. ,can gather much helpful info to'aid all in the carrying out of

to report dutifully to ·the Caliph

THE KNIGHT'S KORNER

Several inquiries illJ.ve been received concerning what sort of training should a squire undergo to prepare for final kinghthood. One very good refeernce is Manly P. Hall's "The Lost Keys of Freemasonry." In the chapter entitled "The Entered Apprentice",~ we find the following requirements:

"]. It is essential that the (squire) should have studied sufficiently the subject of anatomy to have at least a general idea of the physical body, for the entire degree is based upon the mystery

of form. The human body is the highest manife_station of form which he is capable of analyzing .. Consequently, he must devote himself to the study of his own being and its mysteries and' complexities.

2. The (squire) must realize that his body is the living temple of the living God and

treat it accordingly;, for when he abuses or mistreats it he breaks the sacred obligations wh.i c h he must assume before he can ever hope to understand the true mysteries of the Craft. The breaking of his pact with

the higher Life evolving within himself unfailingly invokes the retributive agencies ,of Nature.

3. He must study the problem of the maintenance of bodies through food, clothing, breating, and other necessities, as all of these are important steps in the (squir~'s training). Those who eat i1Dffioderate1y, dress improperly, and use only about one-third of their lung capacity can never have the physical efficiency necessary for the fullest expression of the higher LIfe.

4. He must grow 'physically and in. 't he expression of concrete things. Human relationships must be idealized at this time, and he must seek to unfold all unselfish qualities which are necessary for the harmonious workingof the 4(nighthood) and his fellow men on the physical plane of Nature.

5. He must seek to round off all inequalities. He can best do this by balancing his mental and physical organisms through the application and study of the seven liberal arts and sciences."

ABRAHADABRA ENCA~P~ENT I'IACICK BY THF SEA

The key of the rituals is in the secreL word which I have given unto h i m , LUHK! WITHDRAW! UPON THEn!

With silence ~nd intensity doth move the ABRAHADABRA encampment. With an active membe~ship of 11 (three iOand three.ao lncluded), being in possession of a ~ather unusual tent, and located one block from the ocean. seaside rituals are a convenjent pleasure. ~or the short time we've been togeth~r, a large amount of temple furnitUre has been accumulated, and soon we hope to see two of our 1° members priestly ordained and ~erforming Gnostic nass on a regular basis.

The EnochiAn bug has hit us hard, and its venom runs like fire thru our veins. We are 'in the final stage of the construction of the plcmenLaL tabJets and would aprrpciate any words of warning

FENRIS ENCAMPMENT

We are currently conducting

a series of experiments in the field of human temporal bandwith, simultanaeity, and historical concepts of xenogenesis. We highly recommend that interested parties first refer to the works of Wm.S.Burroughs, particularly CITIFS OF THE RED NIGHT, and to any of 'Lile works of one Thomas Pynchon, particularly the novel GRAVITY'S RAINBOW. A little background in SUmerian wouldn't hurt.

Our hard product qurrently consists of a modest but growing line of Thelemic jewelry th~t in cludes a Baphomet cross, a Liber Oz pendant, a unjcursal hexagram, and a "93", a lI 1" or so,in sterling, the first three at $30.00 and the latter at $25.00. ~ also carry a goats head pendanl th~l says Baphomet in Hebrew instead of Leviathan as all previous models have. This is offered in silver plate over copper for $?5. For those of our number that fC'(III ire speciall y mad tal ismams i\lld a mu l ets, our custom work is wi Ulout comparison. Pieces are crafted on spec i fie p l e n e t a r y days a nd hours and in the approprjate metals. Of course, we encourage

fellow wokers to try to make their o.n ritual items, and Fenris will be happy to answer inquiries in these matters. If you do want something unique, however, we quote prices on request.One dollar, sent to B. Claremont, c/o Tahuti Lodge will get you a copy of our current

catalg. ,

"For my part, I say that the fir~t duty of the ~hinking,fre~ man is ceaselessly to banish the idea of God from his mind and conciousness. 'For God, if he exists, is essentially hostile to our nature, and we in no way depend on his authority ••• each step in our progress represents one more victory in which we annihilate the Deity."

Tahuti Lodge is acting as a tempory clearing house for NYC organization. After the close of LASTAL Lodge, a number of members of ~he Order ~rote in ·to Grand Lodge

1n uncertalnty about who to contact

in New York. Tahuti is a stable Lodge 1n the area, and will field inquiries. A general increase of representative O.T.O. Bodies in New York and environs is contemplated.

Frater Belarion Chapter is defunct again. The problems of manner of report of initiations, financial operations and internal concord have taken their toll. Two new bodies

under different name and organi zationa 1 characteristics are in the planning stages for the area. The local O.T.O. mem~ers are holding meetings informally untll the ne~organizational structure is established.

Jane Wolfe Chapter in Edmonton Canada is presently passing through a period of partial silence: while private matters of the Master of the

Chapter need attention. '

French Canada is coming active u~der the efforts of Bill Breeze of Wllfre~ Smith Chapter. Formal steps are belng taken which will lead in

a few year~ to an independant O.T.O. st~ucture 1n the area. This is a

maJor step in the eventual direction

o! a Grand Lodge of Canada, together w~th t~e Edmonton operations. At first tles wlll have to be close to the USA Grand Lodge to project the traditions

and the i niti atory , i ne into the new developments in Western and Eastern Canada. In a few years, we hope to

be able to announce independence from

the USA Grand Lodge for the Canadi an O.T.D. Before this can be done,

certain legal steps in Canada will have to be taken and the present 'and future bodies of the Order will need to demonstrate vi ability wi th full administrative capacity. This sort of process takes time, but it is necessary. The Grand Lodge in Berkeley is determined to extend the Order to the various nations of the World under local rule.

We hold it improper for an USA. based organization to govern viable O.T.O. organizations in other countries. All national O.T.D. organizations which have proven authenticity and established themselves adequately should be governed by local nationals. At present, only

the Grand Lodge in the USA has ultimate authority. The Blue Equinox mandates

Xth Degree National Heads with election of an D.H.O. At present the USA Grand Lodge under the Caliph operates as the international Order under the acting O.H.O. We of the Grand Lodge, USA

must further the independence of

genuine D.T.O. national Grand Lodges.

The "genuine" part is the present

hitch. We have not found any ether O.T.O. elsewhere in the World or here

in the USA with valid papers or with

a valid operation. We must sponsor national O.T.O. development until

the individual national organizations gain the seasoning and the strength to stand by themselves. This means:

1. a period of development and initiation under the general direction of the

USA Grand Lodge. 2. local national chartering, incorporation etc. 3. the proving through success of two or three individual members in each nation for reception of the terr ib le mantle of the IXth and Xth in a nearly suicidal short time of three to five years. Two factors are involved in the new national heads:

I. Ability to rule and reign must be proven by deeds. II~tability and Endurance in the cause of Thelema and the Order must be manifested.

Visions

WHAT HAS ARISEN IN SAN FRANCISCO

. Well, we call it Stella!; Visions. What, you may ask, is this strange conspiracy? (We all kno.v that San Francisco is famous for its conspiracies.)

Let' '3 see if we can grope for an explanation:

Liber Al says, "Every man and eve ry woman is a sta r", 50 Stellar Visions are our visions. We use it as a vehicle for our Visionary concepts, and those of such "Stars" as Aleister Crowley. How aboo t youi What are your visions?

I suppose !t could be that Stella!; visions a!;e of things stellar in the traditional sence as well. We think man will go to the stars this Aeon, and we hope to keep Thelemi tes informed in the tech nolog! cal kn ce I ege that will be needed to do so. After all how can you keep stars au t of Space?

The wo!;d a s t e r tsn is used in astronomy to denote constellations. It comes from the Greek "aster", which means star. /l';-tarte is one of the names or . the Godde s s, and so ~i tchcra ft TIll s t be i nc Iud ed among our Stellar Visions.

Come to, think of it, as astronomy is the nlimbering of the stars, so astrology is their logic, of course we rust inc lude both of these sciences and arts.

Indeed we publ ish materia 1

on Practical Magi oc , Occult

Philosophy, Witchcraft

As~rology, and. High Technology:

Th1S we embellish with generous helpings of Art and Poetry, and send it aLonq to you.

BOLESI<INE

"Let the ~~agician robed and a r m e d as he may deem fit, turn his face towards Boleskine; that is the house of the Beast 666."

Boleskine rises in the east under the pyramidical shadow of the

Grand Lodge. The Banner of Thelema has been struck in the State Capitol of Babalon. Although our numbers are few, our ranks are growing as the 93 current manifests .in Sacramento.

In April we had the pleasure of hosting a visit by the Caliph. The Caliph ended his Magickal Mystery Tour by initiating 4 minervals

and signing and sealing off our Camp Charter.

In May our Camp entered an O.T.O. booth In the Whole Earth Festival, held for 3 days at U.C.Oavis. The restival II'-a-s-like a gathering of the Barbarian Psycadelic Tribes

of th~ street sixties. Friends from the Grand Lodge came up to il("tll partake of the festival and spr~dd the Law of Thelema to the Chjldren of Horus.

, sometime before a .group ser-i ous about working with 8£AnJ..I(:! will be able to manifest from these spheres, but individual working and study (the

true .spirit ) are wide spread. The Thoth deck & The Book of Thoth are enjoying a new popularity. People are

no longer afraid of Crowley and they want to know more! As of the lOth,

Fr. ExancanorX will no longer be

We all bave been richly rewarded from this, and do send our most hallowed and fraternal love with him.

THE KNIGHT'S.KoRNER

Last Month we discussed the duties and goals of the Squire. This month we will look at the duties and goals Df the Knight. As before, we_wfTl use M.P.

Ha 11 's "The Lost Keys of Freemasonry"

as a guide. '

The goals of a Knight, in part, are

1) the rna stery of emo t.fcna 1 outbreaks of all kinds, poise under trying conditions, kindness in the face of unkindness, and~sirn~licity with its accompayning power. These points show that the Kn.i.9h;t is worthy of being taught by.a fellow Kn.i.ght.

2) the mastery of the animal energies, the curbing of passion and desire, and the control of the lower nature mark the faithful attempts on the part of the KY1~.a Itt to be worthy of the Kf1.-tgh:t.hood.

3) the und~rstanding and mastery of the creative forces, the consecration of them to the un-

his order. Personalities cannot bin d the t rue K nA.g h.t.. f Q r h a v i n g raised one point of the compasses he now realizes that all personal manifestations are governed by

i mp e r so J;lq,l 'PI'i,ryc i p 1, es.

5). at,rthii& po t n t Ue Knight consecrates the-five senses to the study of human problems with the unfolding of sense centers as

the motive; for he realizes that the five senses are keys, the proper application of which will give him material for spiritual transmutation if he will apply

to them the common divisor of analogy .

These wer~ taken from Chapter IV entitled "The Fellow Craft".

If a knight is to be worthy of defending, the honor of the Cal i p h , he, firstly, must be above all reproach. His 1 ife must be that which will inspire others to act with honor and pride. The knight is no longer a individual, but

now is a symbol, a mark, a flag,

a standard.

Before a knight can demand any respect or privelege. he first must be worthy of such. And if

he truly is worthy of the respect, he need not demand it, it will

be offered by those around him willingly.

The OKB is_no~_a group for those seeking honor, but, instead, is for those willing to take on the task of working for the Order, It is not an organization for the entertainment of the person, but a body of soldiers willing to give up their 1 ife in the service of Baphomet.

If you are so inclined, and wish more information, write

Knights of Baphomet P.O. Box 29

Newark, CA 94560

Be somewhat patient in waiting for a response, but be assured, no letter goes unanswered.

(l)nuu'l Cud!.!e :Report:

Thelema Lodge is the Grand Lodge of Ordo TempI; Qrientis and the haaquarters of O.T.O. world-wide until other national Grand Lodges are cveated.

The Address is: 1'.0, Sex 2303

Berkeley, C{l, 94702 Y_.2.A.

The three chief Dffic~rs of O.T.O., The Caliph, the Grand Treasurer General and the Grand Secretary General may be reached at this address. 'The Board of Dir'ectors of O.T.O. and the

Board of Directot's of E.G.C also use this postal address.

All err-or occurred \~i Lh the

lasL i~sue of the Magickal Link in the matter of the date line and rssue number. Last issue was noted as "#5 ... May 19S1l v ," when it shoulJi..have been designated

" Numeer 6, June 1981 e.v.~

We hope that this has not caused undesirable confusion, but the date line was simply over-looked in the last issu~ paste-up.

The activities at-Grand lodge have been well attended during the last few weeks. We hilve continued

to offer <:1 asses and di scuss i on grolJps 1n several areas of Magick and in creative arts. A Pagan film night ff.lj;ured 011 1ast month's calandar.

This was such a hi t , that another

film night will be offered in July.

TI'€ Films are all local productions a~d both well done and unusual.'

~ore classes on the deities are

in the offing and several presentations art; now being of'fe red by members who haven't presented through D.T.D. Before. He at Grand Lodge a re happy

to find this increase in shar i nq

01- ~r,fl)rm,ltion and insight. F.verybody [WOWS end gets c l oser tht s \~ay.

Although no accurate count has been made, it is evident from the general activity in reporting new initiations and from the increased incidence of initiations in the Grand Lodge immediate area that the Order is growing at about twice the rate of last year. This includes Minerval initiations. It looks very much like O.T.O, will be going to 500 active members in from st x to ni ne months.

We may have a set back of about 50 Minerval exp,t'ations when this mat ter is reviewed in the next months, but renewing MinervaJs are higher than previous years. The Order is growing again. Loca1 bodies and increased awareness on the part of the public have been the major factors',

Publishing activities are still a bit behind. Liber AL should be

in the press in the next two weeks.

The #12 Newsletter will be in t.he

press over the next six weeks with likely publ iLation by the end of July. We have had one set back after dnother in this issue, but not all of the

delay has been neg&tive. The Magickal

l. i nk is the 1 o~ awai ted member' publication. Tnis is the 7th issue

of the Link, it. looks like it is going to stay. Attention can now be focused on publication of the Newsletter at annual or semi-annual intervals. Between these two p~riodicals O.T.O. will finally be able to establish the right sort of prmnpt and in-depth contact throughrut the Order. The

Link will provide timely matter and

a forun while the Newsletter will be available as a media of longer report and speCial articles. W~ at Grand

Lodge wish to thank our Brothers and Sisters for their patience over the delays with the Newsletter. Now that

so many of our out-lying bodies have begun subbmi ttl ng camera-ready copy

for the Link, preparation time has

been substantially reduced -- thus freeing time for the Ne.wsletter.

Remember that several other O.T.O. bodies have publications. Many of these are as interesting as the

News 1 etter. Keep an e.ye on the Chapter and lodge reports in the Link

for announcement of publication dates for these special publications. They are often more valuable than most of the non-O .. T.O. pUbl~ions,that we

have seen. ~

Response time at ffirand Lodge on correspondence and 'orders for publications and tapes is subject to occassional change. At present we Sfem to have

a two-week turn-around on mos t simple letters. Letters 'ncludlng orders with questions may be'delaid a bit more

in that two responses may need to be made 1 n order to ful fi 11 the requests. Tapes will be supplied more promply

in the next two months than in the

last two. We Simply ran out of blanks ;H!d had to re-stock. If you sent in

dn order for tape ca5setLes 1 while ago, you should expect delivery in about four weeks on the outside. Orders for back issues of the Newsletter are limited to stock on hand. We can furnish significant quantities of #1,2 and 4. We have no more copies of #6 and it will be some time before we are able to reprint.

All the other tssues-e-e still available on a one copy to an order basis. The supply of double issue #10-11 is down

to the point that we are no longer sending it out to -new Minervals and Associates unless it is'specifically purchased. Issue #12 will 'bp along SDon.

There is a temporal! short29P of certificate blanks and fan;ls fa>" n~mbership application. The new degree certificates ( same style as the old ones) will be printed this week. The current shortage of Liber AL's will be cleared

up by tile end of next month iJ the

binding goes as expected.

Very preliminary work on a computor system for Grand Lodqe h~s begun. The svs tem wi 11 L'e bui 1 t uJ hum uart.s as

t~r as the Processer and RAM are concerned. Ee r ly.rtes ts on the equipment are promising, but it will be a ypaf or more before dl1 records and camera-ready copy can be

made up in this manner, When that

occurrs, most of the present delays

in s imp l e reques ts ilne most of urob lems with the publ ications will be cleared-up, An enormuu, amount of time is wasted nn old-f<:lshioned records-keeping dnd copy checking.

KNIGHT OF BABALON-NUIT

My idea of establishing an order

of protectorate Knights as an honor guard for the office of.the Scarlet Woman has finally come lnto actual being. During our trip to Heru-ra-

ha Lodge I knighted eight persons to the guild of the Knights of BabalonNuit. I am thinking of another name for this organization and anyone who has a suggestion please write in care of Grand Lodge. Six of th: Kni~hts reside in the Southern Callfornla area and two in the Grand Lodge area. The function of the guild would be in a service oriented way for honorary purposes as well as service to the Office of Scarlet Woman and the O.T.O. Any questions will be answered by

writing Shirin Morton ·c/o Grand L:odge.

THE COLLEGE OF THELEMA. P.O. Box 415, Oroville. CA. 95965

The 2nd seminar of the College of Thelema which took p'lace for

4 days over the surruner/Sols t.Lce , was a great success. We studied Tarot, the Yi ching, the historical roots of ritual. the Astrological houses, hatha yoga and other systems of relaxation and breathing- Early in the morning we worked on yoga exercises and in the evenings we were involved

with ritual"

The College of Thelema is supportive of its students who take their studies seriously and who work hard. Several students were so well prepared and so knowledgeable that they did some of the teaching this year. Several did

a good job with ritual.

We have also just published Vol. II, No_ 11 of IN THE CONTINUUM, on time as usual. This publication has proven to be an invaluable aid to serious students of Thelema, Every back issue is available as instructional articles are planned so as to lead the student to a very solid development in knowledge. Many writings by Crowley are in I.T,C. which

are difficult or impossible to find in print. It can be purchased from. Phyllis Seckler, P.O.

W.T. Smith Chapter had the honour of an initiation visit by the Caliph who, by all accounts, enjoyed his stay with us. It was also our pleasure to host numerous other guests from the States including the Ripples of Ra-Hoor-Khuit Lodge, the Wassermans of Tahuti Lodge, Richard Gernon (EGC Bishop, NYC), and a phalanx of Chapter and Encampment leaders from the New York City area.

Minervals were held Friday, June 12; those for candidates from Toronto, Ottawa, and Plattsburgh,

N.Y. were held on Saturday. [une 13. On Sunday we

enjoyed an informal brunch at Cafe Thelerne on rue

Ontario. Monday and Tuesday were given over to conferences, and the Caliph enjoyed a visit to the

wilds of Quebec as a guest of93 Publishing. A follow-

up visit by our Lodge Master to Ra Hoar Khuit Lodge

made possible further fruitful conferences with the

Caliph.

0" Saru rday afternoon Hymenaeus Alpha, Patriarch of Ecclesiae Cnostica Catholica, consecrated Richard Gernon and Robert Latulippe as Bishops of New York City and of Quebec, respectively. This was followed by an EGC Synod concerning the church hierarchy and the duties and powers of the offices. The participants included the Patriarch, the Archbishop pro tern for Eastern North America Mechele Ripple, the new Bishops of New York City and Quebec, and Brother Marcel Petit 0°, a "free priest" in the French Templier gnostic succession. Minutes of the meeting are available. Bishop Robert Latulippe is drafting a comprehensive EGC Canon for submission to the EGC Council. All present felt that the induction of Messrs. Latulippe, Gernon and Petit will accelerate the development of EGC, owing to their extensive firs.t:.hand knov0edg_e of the tradition.

Groundwork for the Gnostic Mass has slarted,ano plans for classes, workshops and seminars are being developed.

French translations of several of A.C.'s works are underway, as well-as an Arabic translation of lib .. , Al. We have a working nucleus for a Translators' Guild, and welcome corresponclen\e from tranJlators. .

Finally, we are pleased to annou-ice that W.1. Smith Chapter is now Phoenix Lodge, named to honour (and renew) the efforts of our predecessors in the Canadian O.T.O., Fras. Achad (C.S. Jones) and 132 (W.T. Smith).

phoenix Lodge extends ttstha-vks to Ra Hoor Khuit Lodge for expert assistance in our firs! initiations, and to all who helped make the Caliph's visit possible.

Beverly Senseman-Crosby, the

Gr~nd ~ecretary General of Ordo Templ; Orlent1s, has tendered her resignation from the office of Grand Secretary General. G,H. Soror Beverly has found that her new job and her newly married state leave her insufficient time to adequately perform the duties of the third ranking office of O.T.O. She has indi:ated that she will be willing to C?ntlnue on as the editor of the Magickal Llnk, so please continue to mark submissions for the Link to her attention via the P.O. Box at Grand Lodge.

The resignation was accepted with gratitude for survices well rendered during the July 18th meeting of the Supreme Council of O.T.O. Beverly

also proposed a replacement in the ,. office and the Supreme Council has accedded,

Kay Lewis,aka Lola deWolfe

the present Controler of the \r:.:-, Order, has been appoi nted by Counci \ as. Grand Secretary General-pro tsm, Until nominations for the office can be received and an election by IXth Degree can be held. Soror Lola is

an able and an intelligent officer with experience in mil itary office work and Magickal Ritual. We are honored to have two GSr,'s of such merit and qualifications follow oneanother in office. Would that the US Presi dency could claim even one

so worthy and able in recient time.

All mail directed to the Grand Secretary General at the

Grand Lodge will reach Sr. Lola until further developments. Lodge, Chapter and Camp reports and applications should be directed to her attention.

I join with other IXths and officers of O.T.O. in extending my congratulations to Sr." Beverly on

her marriage to an old friend of mine. O.T.O. brought them together and that

is something to be proud of in itself. Beverly has been ali fe-saver for us

at Grand Lodge. Her able work in the many months of her tenure as GSG was often the deciding factor in keeping the Order growing through difficult times. We look forward to a long sharing of wit ~nd wisdo~ with ~_oror Be, rlY. aka

Thelema Lodge is the Grand Lodge of Ordo Templi Orientis and the headquarters of O.T.o. world-wide until other national Grand Lodges are created,

The Address is:

P.O. Box 2303 Berkeley, CA 94702 USA.

The Three chief offic,ers of O.T.O.; The Caliph, Grand Treasurer General and Grand Secretary General pro-tern, as well as the Boards Of. Directors of O.T.O. and the GnostIc Catholic Church (E.G.C,) are all reached through the above address.

Events this last month at Grand Lodge have included the usual classes, rituals and initiations noted on the Calandar last month in the Magickal Link. The Poetry meeting seems to be a new fixture of the Month at Grand Lodge, with considerable interest in this workshop. Classes in Egyptian Deities progress with above average attendance. Classes in the Libers

and ;n Mag;ck in Theory and Practice continue. Sometime around the begining of September a series of Classes in Tarot Divination will be presented at the Grand Lodge·- this is the same series that was offered last year, and runs about six weeks.

We were deliqhted last week by

the gift of a stai~ed-glass window

of the O.T.O. Lamin. The window was made by Soror Vi gil 0 of Phoeni x Ari zona. It measures aproximately four feet on

a side. Measures are hurredly underway to build a fitting display for the window. It's a splendid piece of work.

W.t. Smith Chapter in Eastern

Canada has been raised to a Lodge (see report e l sewhere in this iSSLIe 1 following a visit of inspection and initiation by

the Caliph. Some 22 initiations took

place. One of our NYC Sorors, SL, had difficulty at the US-CANAD!AN Border

when she returned from visiting the new Lodge. Lacking adequate identification, she was not pennitted to cross into the USA. She had a quick thought and produced the Certificate of her last O.T.O. initiation.r It worked! Definitely Magid,

On the facing page will be seen

the fruits of the Ghost-Story litigation. We have the author's apology and a $20.000.00 check from his company, This came through in July owing to last

minute negotiations. O.T.O. members who may find themselves or the Order criticized by readers of this book "Ghost Story" are advised to keep track of this page with

the copy of the letter and the check.

A picture is worth 20,000 words in contradicting bad publicity. The Order has certified to the Author and publisher

that it is in fact the only legitimate O.T.O. which could be construed to be

the organization mentioned in the book. and that no further suit will be entered anywhere by 0, La. over the matter as it stood at the time of set tt ernent . This

is something of a milestone in O. T.O.Crowley histoy'y. Crov/1ey was often Slandered and libeled and so has O.T.O. been slandered and libeled. This is the fi rs t time in many attempts over seven decades that either Crowley or the Order has received even so much as an apology for incorrect publication of stor+es

about LIS. It won 1 t be the 1 ast , For

the first time in modern history, the Order is strong enough to defend itself

in the public eye. O.T.O. has nothing

to be ashamed of and we are proud of

our prophet. If any wish to denounce

us, let them do it with straight facts.

We wor't be going head-hunting, especially for small insults from small people; but vast public releases of false information will not go unchallenged.

What wi 11 the money go to? Here' 5 a preliminary breakdown: $6,DOO.00---Lawyer's fee $4,OOO.OO---reserved for possible taxation ( not expected but it needs to be held for several years in a high interest account)

$3.000.00---directly to individual Lodges, Chapters and Camps for O.T.O. work in progress.

$l,OOO.OO---Grand Lodge office equipment and fiX-Up. $550.00-----Back into the General fund ( lawyer's early fees paid out of G.F.l $5,450.00·---high & low interest accounts and undecided expendatures ,

NOTICE: ANI(H-FN-i<.HONSU CHAPTER HAS BEEN SUSPENDED FOR CAUSE: DETAILS LATER,

Just how much is $20,000.001

First of all, it's really $14,000 after standard lawyer's 30%. Then it's really about $10.000 when you hold out against possible taxes. That $10,000 is close

to one year's income for the .intire

O.T.O. as it presently stands. Think

of your last dues and your latest initiation fee-- that's just been equaled. All in all, it is probably a fair deal. During the early publication of Ghost Story, Order enrolement dropped back.

We had far fewer new members and more leaving members than either before or

a year later. Who can say? Was it

partly this book? The gone don't

often say why. and we have never pressed for reasons for leaving O.ToO. This settlement has given us one year's income. The book may have cost us

one year's growth.

Local bodies should hold meetings to discuss the use of the money. The best projects will be funded and the larger groups of members will generaly tend to get more. Suggestions should

be sent to the Supreme Councilor to

the Grand Treasurer General. At present $1,000 is ear-marked for southern Calif., $1,000 for New York State and $1.000 for all other bodies together. This allocation was chiefly made by membership counts outside the Grand Lodge geographic area. There can be other funding. A substantial amount will be held in savings accounts against the unforseen.

A photo-copy machine has been obtained by the Grand Treasurer General. Other than routine enclosures from Grand Lodge. larger items will be available

at 8¢ per page, pas tpaid. Of thi s , 6¢ will go to operate the machine and 2¢

for postage and possible profit to Grand Lodge. The copies are "wet"-grey type, but quite legible. Those who want copies of Crowley'S works by this method are encouraged to contact Stellar Visions (see addvert. on the right of this page) first. This business is organized to handle such items. Smaller matter and sundry materials can now be quickly obtained via our house photo-copier at the 8¢ rate. There will be less delay in getting copies of resolutions and MSS, for instance.

That's all for now.

This time he sat dOftn next to Vanessa and they got to talking. Turned out she was heavy into Crowley and knew an awful lot about these things. The net result is that more than half of the INFERNO CLUB signed up and on

Aug 2 we initiated 13 Minervals.

We have great hopes that this will grow rapidly into a Lodge. Of course ~J 0 e is a 2 n d Degree,

Spedki ~ of the INFERNO CLUB, Crowley would have loved it. I remember in London in r 43 e , v , and Crowley and I were rapping across the chess board and he accused the Americans of being "much too serious." Of course we were fighting a war. But his exp1antion was the Old Time London Music Hall. "Because they were so jolly."

Last month Canada. This month Georgi~. Next? An interesting thought. Oyes. The Canadian lodge is expanding rapjdly.

During the Caliph's recent visits

to Southern Cal Hornia, New York State, Eastern Canada and Georga ( temporal order of travel ) a number of bodies

of the Order have been chartered. We are a little behind in firming up addresses and status on some of these bodies. and ask that our members bear with us for a month or so on some of the deta il s. The membershi p of the Order has increased by neal·l y 100 Mi nerva 1 s

in the last two months • At least 6

new bodi as of the Order h<lve been chartered tentatively. There are a

few "buggs II to be -j roned out yet and some general instructions to gilte, so this seems a good time to go over the basics of what the different bodies represent and then to gi ve a general

and speci fi c news report on proqress

in these new and ~ome of the older bodies.

\mAT ARE CA~1PS, CHAPTERS AND LODGES? These are official groups of the

Order. The Camps are the most flexable.

A Camp can be anything from an experimental body formed for a few months to an

i nl t i at lnq body of long duration •

Camps typtce l ly do not initiate, are small Dr are attached to larger chapters or Lodges in the area. A Satel t te Camp

can be thought of as an extension of a Lodge or Chapter to cover a spacial interest, provide a special service or permit meetings in areas within the influence of the Chapter Of Lodge otherwi se too far from the Chapter or Lodge

for COil ven 1 ent trevel , Sotlle Satel ite Camps do all or part of the initiations

of the larger Lodges. Camps ( other

than Satelite Camps) are also established in new areas with the intent-ion th:ilt they wi 11 become Chapters when they pr'ove

their stability and when they grow 1arger. Chapters are bodies with some administrative obligations, Chapters hold more frequent

, meeting.s, often pub l ish material sand

\ genera l"Iy are '1 arqer than Camps. Chapters are sna ll "Lodges". Lodges are the hl qhes t administrative level of Order aperations. All Lodges have initiations, While some Chapters do not init-iate. ,The Grand Lodge is the central authority ft)r administration of the Order tn a given County'yo G'rand

Lodges come one-to-a-country ( or one for each distinct language-group of size within a country~ Grand Lodges generally are a 1 so respons.tble for development of other Grand Lodges through sponsorship of the growth of the Order in other countri es ,

In general. Camps and Chapters can be formed inunediately. Lodges take several years to form from smaller bodies and

a Grand lodge may take anywhere from

five to 30 years to form. The rate of formation of a Grand Lodge from scattered and new bod; es wahi n a country depends entirely on the success of those bodies

at developing themselves, uniting their efforts and proving themselv~s responsible to their members within their country of residence. Legal establishment within

a country is usually a primary condition for a Grand lodge.

HOW TO FORM A CAMP OR CHAPTER.

Contact the American Grand Lodge, Thelema Lodge, either through a local Chapter or Lodge or directly. The contact shoul d take the form of a general written proposal of intent to do some particular thing as a Camp or Chapter, should include a suggestion for a name of the new body and must be sent to

the attention of either the Caliph,

Grand Secretary General or the Grand Treasurer General of the Order.

Sending the proposal to all three is just about the only way to be sure of prompt action. When the proposal is understood, and in almost all cases, the proposal

wi 11 be granted in the Supreme Council.

A charter is then prepared by the person or persons appl yi n9 for control of the Camp or Chapter. Such a charter must

name the body correctly as a Camp or Chapter ( whichever is decided),

should include the Thelemic Greetings

used in ordinary correspondence between Thelemites, must name a Master or Mistress of the body and must include a statement

of recognition of hierarchy. The. statement of reco~nition of hierarchy mu~t ln~lude

a. statement that the new body 1 sunder

the regul Q ",; on of the Supreme eounci1

and the Caliph of O.T.O., and may also mention a Chapter or Lodge in the case

of the new body being a Satelite Camp .. Anything fancy or simple in the way of a description of the aims or goals of the

new body is optional. This charter

must be one single page, but should

be sllbmitted in tripllcate ( photocopy ok).

A Charter is purely optional unless initiations are done. Initiating bodies must either have a charter to ; n1 ti ate with the I II rd Degree

or higher initiator specifically mentioned or they must limit their initiations to those done by a member holding

a personal charter to initiate, signed

by the Caliph, A Camp, Chapter or

Lodge becomes official only after the Supreme Council passes a resolution making that body official. The Caliph somet t mes prepares or signs charters

pri or to Supreme Counc t 1 resol uti on,

but this is a courtesy only. By doing this, the Caliph signifies his intention to back the application in Council.

The New Body sti 11 must go through an abreviated process of sending their charter or two photocopyes to the counci 1 for final recognition,

WHAT MUST A CAMP OR CHAPTER DO TO STAY OFFI CIALl

Report and stay cool. The financial act; vt t i es, if any, must be reported to the Grand Treasurer General, the meetings and reco rds keeping processes must be reported to the' Grand Secretary General and a short account of the body's activity must be sent into the Magickal Link for report to the Membership of the Order atleast every three months, All these reports go to the Grand Lodge P.O. Box.

In addition, any intiations must be applied for and reported in a timely manner according to the regulation of

the Grand SecY'etary General, Caliph and Gr'and Treasurer General-- without fail

or excessive delay.

The original conditions of charter mus t be followed or amended. The rul es

of the Order \llust be obeyed most particularly in the area of the rights of the local members being defended by the local Master/Mistress of the Body. The safety of the Order either in physical, financial or legal matters must not be placed in danger.

All reports of Satelite Camps and some Chapters may be simplyi.ncl uded in those of the parent Chapter or Lodge-- or such reports may be made individually if copies are provided to the parent bodies.

CURRENT CAMPS AND CHAPTERS UP FOR RECOGNITION:

These bodies are in the last stages of Supreme Counci 1 recogni t ion.

INRI Camp in the New YOI"k City area is due to be recognized before you read this Magickal Link. Address next issue. contact through Tahuti Lodge in New York for now.

AD Spare Camp ;s likewise due to be advanced to A.O.Spare Chapter.

AHA Camp in Southern California.and AHA Camp in Chicago have an obVIOUS prob 1 em. Both wi 1"1 be recoqni zed as soon as the two individuals involved communicate their mutual decisions about which body gets this naille and which body gets another name--one body to a name. For now, contact the AHA in Southern California through Hel-u-

Ra-Ha Lodge and the AHA Camp in Chicago through Thelema Lodge. Please, fe ll ows , tell us what you decide soon

Hellfire Camp is to become a Chapter.

OTHER NEW BODIES: are in earlier stages. ALEPH-TAO Camp will probab Iy be formed in Toronto under Bri an Postnikoff to control fully expansion in the Toronto area for now under Phoenix Lodge. An earlier planned

body for Toranto has 'aparent ly rebelled even before recognition could be made. More in the Grand Lodge report following.

THE KNIGHT'S KORNER

Do wha~ thou wilt shall he ~he whole of the taw.

"How this new Aeon of. Hor-us will develop, how the Child will grow up, these are for us to determine, growing up ourselves in the way of the Law of Thelema, under the enlightened guidance of tbe Master Therion." Preface to Liber Al

This states the condition of the OKB better than any thing, We do

not know what the future balds for UH. We cannot rely too heavily on the experiences of the Past Aeou, for the Knights of yore are far different than the Knights of 'I'oday,

Many of us in the OKB wonder what it is that we can do to further the Principles of Thelema, what can we do t.o make the manifestation of Horus more complete. Who has the answers? They are not too easily found,

We are trea.ding on "virgtn Soil" and we need, more than anything, guidelines, We can take some of them from the Aurthurian stories, but there are some concepts which are not Thelemic.

Perhaps the best way to solve this problem is to have an increase in dtalogue between the Knights and Squires, and between the OKB and those outside of our ranks. We also need more dedicated .indivtduals who are willing to work and help us grow!

If this sounds Lt k e your "bag", you are invited to write us at

Grand !ndge R~pnrt:

Thelema Lodge is the Grand Lodge of Ordo Templi Orientis and the headquarters of O,ToO. world-wide until other national Grand Lodges. are Created.

The Address is:

P.O. BOx 2303 Berkeley, CA 94702 U.S,A.

All mail to O.T.O •• E.G.C.

and the Chief Officers of O.T.O. or E.G.C. can be received at this address. Mail for local bodies having addresses listed in the back of this Magickal Link may

be sent directly to those listed addresses.

O.LO. on the Move: Temples of O.T.O. in New York City

and Berkeley ( Grand Lodge) are slated to be relocated. Contact Tahuti Lodge in New York for details there. The Grand Lodge Temple has reached the end of its welcome

at the 2822 San Pablo Ave Address.

( don't worry, the Caliph still

lives at the san~ location). When we moved into quarters in Oct. of '79 the other tenents were mostly

ladies of the evening. That was

fine with us, but the Land Lord doubtless thought of us as "sterl ing tenants" in contrast. NOVI, almost two years later, the nine-to-fivers have the majority. Also, everybody else pays $100 to $200 more than we pay. Thus, the Greater Mystery imposes movement in this li ne of

our hexagram.

Any O.T.O. members in the Berkeley area capable of movement and speech please take note. HELP~ We have unti 1 .the end of September. to move , out and find a new place. Unless

we get situated by Sept 15th, we cannot announce meeti nqs on the Calendar for October, a month including Crowley's Birthday,

\~e need a good sized pl ace, cheap, in walking distance of Grady's home and devoid of people who go to bed early. We will hold abreviated meetings in homes if necessary, but that just isn't good enough. With everybody looking, it shouldn't take long to base down again.

Otherwise, things are fine. Grady's health is as good or better than usual, although he has a slight sprain in his knee from a freak fall--just mentioning this here to reasure Eva and others who called in to find out what happened-honest, Eva, I tried to phone you ..•

The Grand Lodge is at the Ren,issancJ Faire again this year, with profits per weekend just under $100. Good exposure for the Order and good stability for

the treasury. Our orof t ts from the Faire help us keep the Temple open.

Confusion from the remains of Ankh-f-n-Khonsu Chapter is still all

we know. This body had two Minerval members and took it into their collective heads to initiate new Minervals.

As nearly all of us know, only IIIrd Degree and higher Members can initiate, and they sware not to do so without written permission. The ex-chapter

in Minn, was informed in plain words

that they couldn't initiate, and they

1 ater went through the moti ons wi th Associate Members who came a considerable distance at their invitation. We don't know more because the two Ninervals

at the ex-Chapter have not responded

to our letters requesting their side

of the story. We have no choice but

to terminate the official Chapter there.

Through a loan of operating funds, Boleskine Camp in Sacramento has re~ ported that the plans are well set to hold a public event in Sacramento California with Ken~h Anger and his latest film, Fritz Leiber, Bob Wilson and the O.T.O. on the 23rd and 24th of Qctober. Write now for information, the next announcement in the Magickal Link may be too late for your plans. Write to P.O. Box 94, Carmichael, CA 95608 on this matter.

What with moving the Temple, enlargment of the initiation Oas,sin

the GTG's basement, Ran Faire and a terrific backlog of printing, correspondence and response to mail-orders has snagged again. Things should be running smoothly again by the end of the fi rs t week in September.

Mail is functioning again to Canada, so welcome Canadian initiates! If you were initiated in the last few weeks, it may be a 1 ittl e bit before your certif;cates reach you ... don't despare! We will honor all decisions by Bill Breeze made in this matter during the lapse in the mail service.

(%1lI!l iI: Q:ufqal b: a:~utcll (E.!l!.O:.)

During a routine examination of the affairs of the E.G.C. for consideration of registration with the State of Utah, it was discovered that serious lapses had occurred with report of some Church Bapti sms , Consecrations and other membership records. It appears that an unknown number of Church Members were not recorded in their various classes

of Member, Deocon/ess. Priest/ess

and other states. This problem was most severe with early records, but

may have pers ts ted down to the present. IF YOU BELIEVE YOU ARE A MEMBER OF

THE E.G.C. in any category, AND you

are not contacted in the next three weeks (from Sept. 1st) we have either no current address for you or your membership or class of membership

was never correctly reported and entered in the books of the Church. Contact Either Father ION or the Secretariat of the Church at once

with details of your membership

status, including: Level of membership, place and date, and person performing the membership ritual or consecration. Bishops of the church are urgently requested to supply copies of their

own record-books on this matter to

the secretariat or to Father ION.

The address to use is: P.O. Box 2303 Berkeley, CA 94702, USA.

The E.G.C, has a new logo ( lamin ), seal and Patriarchate seal. More

in a future issue of the O.T.O.'s Magickal Link.

The E.G,C. is an independant Church of Thelemic Religion having close

ties to O.T.O. both historically and through continued friendship.

585 W. 214th Street, Apt. 6-D New York, NY 10034

New York has seen a great many changes of late, In an effort to encourage development of area

Camps and Chapters, and to strengthen Lodge self-awareness; Tahuti has temporarily suspended Minerval initiations as of May. Hell Fire has achieved Chapter status, and I. N, R. L Encampment has been formed. This brings the total of New York City initiating bodies to four.

New York group leaders enjoyed a wonderful visit with our Caliph in Montreal, where 23 beautiful Brothers and Sisters were initiated by him in grandest form. We thank you our Canadian friends once again for your lovely hospitality.

Richard Gernon was consecrated in Montreal as Bishop of New York City by our Patriarch. Our first baptisms were held at sunrise in the ocean,

this July. The weekly Gnostic Mass continues to act as an excellent contact point for the Order,

Summer Solstice and Lammas Rituals both very powerful. Working now

On the Fall Equinox Ritual.

We hope that all who ordered through the Tahuti Book Service we:re satisfied with our handling of your orders. The Book of Lies is now available in paperback, price $6.95 less 10% plus $1. 00 postage.

THE KNIGHT'S '<ORNER

,

Do whab bhou wil~ shall be ~he whule Df ~he tJw.

The Society for Creative Anacroni SOl, called the SCA, which many of us are aquainted, has a long standing po~icy that before a fighter can be consldered qualified for knighthood, he (or she) must also demonstrate qualities of chivalry. One aspect of this is the knowledge of Courtly Conduct and an involvement with social graces such as Court Dancing, Poetry. etc.

It causes one to wonder why would such behaviour be required of ci person who's prime function in life is to fight on the battlefield? Afterall. there are no ball rooms, no "round table" of knights to relax and discuss the finer points of theosophy. After a battle. the knight is too tired, or perhaps injured beyond the point of wishing

a challenging game of chess .

Why then, should there be a need for "social graces?" Perhaps it is because these behaviours require discipline. The same type of discip1ine required from a unit of a fighting machine. To display social graces, you need the same awareness of a soldier. You need to be aware of those around you, how they are reacting

to you, and the situation in which you

and the other person are in. You cannot let your mind drift into yourself, you cannot consider yourself alone. If the knight thinks only of his weary arm, his saddle-sore posterior, his armour-chafed body, he will then not be able to fight

to his best ability.

Remember, the SAFEST way to judge the knight is in peace, by his (or her) social graces, Trying to judge a knight in battle might result in the loss of your head.

Knights should remember that they are always in battle, eVen at the Kings dinner table, 1n times of peace we use the dagger to cut our meat, not our sword to cut the enemy.

Cutle is che lilW, love unoer will.

Much is happening fast here at Grand Lodge, There is only space to present this news in outline,

1. Stellar Visions is having a change of operation and backing. At one time, this publication-publishing organization was independantly owned.

As of the first of Oct., Stellar Visions will become a Chapter of the Order in San Francisco, with a wider base of membe rsh i p involvement. Publishing

wi 11 conti nue, as wi 11 semi -i ndependant manaqentent from O. T.O. Grand Lodge. Under this new arrangement, Grand

Lodge will fund the operations. Continue to correspond via the prevlously advertized address: Stellar Visions, 533 Sutter St. ,·#666, San Francisco, CA 94102 USA. The only difference to customers of Stellar Visions will be the endorsement stamp on the checks. This is a more rapid way of providing general interest Thelemic publications than can be worked by Grand Lodge di rectly.

We are happy to see the Order diversify.

2. A 1972 e.v. text editor

and n6n-programable cOlilputor ha~ been obtained by the Grand Lodge in broken condition for $375.00 ( TY-TAPE EDITOR Model 3600/2 ) and repaired by the

Grand Treasurer General. This machine will be used to prep. letters of frequent use, to handle the mailing list and

to assist financial and other records handling. The Contact Body list in

this Magickal Link was produced hy this machine ( With headlines excepted ).

Space is limited obtain the addI ist in the

A very gre"t savinys in time and

a considerable improvement in services over the next several monthsi 5 to be expected as a result of this device. Question: Does anyone au t the I'e know where we

can get an operator's n~nuel for

it? There must be several things that it can do which the GTG hasn't managed to torture out of it yet.

3. The Grand Lodge Temple

is moving as of the First of October to the address given on the contact list in this Link. Although the outward apearance of the new location may continue to leave sorrething to be desired,

we will have a much greater· latitude in doing our collective and individual wills at the new place. Actually, this move was forced

upon us, but every ti me that has happened in some area in the

reeient past, the results have

been considerahle improvement.

We are looking forward to being

able to design our own meeting spaces. The new rent is $275 per month

for 900 Sq. Ft. If a donative

support group manifests locally,

we will be able to add other spaces of equal size for specialized temple work in the s~me building.

4. The Reuai ssance PI easure Faire operdtion for Grand Lodge pulled in $2469.00. After expenses and 60% to the members who read

at the booth, the Order received

a profit of about $750.00. This

is $150.00 more than last year.

Watch for local events in your areas for local fundraising. This money keeps the temple open at Grand Lodge.

5. The Ghost-Story settlement money is beginning to make a difference in oportunities for. the Order. We have been able to help several local bodies and we have been able

to invest in Thelemic work more easily.

6. Motta is attacking Thelemic Publishers through intermediaries, incisting that they cease to publish Crowley unless t.hey pay him. If any

of our readers hcar of such cases, please write tD Grand Lodge immediately. We have successfully stopped this in England, Spain and part of the USA

in some instances.

Official Monthly Bulletin of Ordo Templi Orientis

VoL I. No,. 11 November_1981 e.v.An. LXXVIIe,n.

Do what thou wi! t shall be the whole of the Laui,

From the CALIPH

OK, Back to Genesis 2,

Your education is about to begin.

This is the story of the 4 rivers of Paradise, Sometimes known as the Map of Atlantis,

We have gone thru Pison & Ghihon. Technically Mezla is not one of the rivers, but the Source, like the Gangesc

The 3rd river is Hiddekel, ~PIU ~ 139. This goes from

the Visudha chakra to the Anahata chakra ( translation: to Tiphereth •. ,your heart, •• Sun •.. life, compassion, beauty,,,,Also known as the Spider, Pelican, and/or 5" ~ 6" ••• depending ), It is East.

The 4th river is Pharath.

The Euphrates. It is the North ( & we will remember the relation of Nuit to the North, as of Hadit to the South ). It is n19 ~ 680." It is the path from the Visudha chakra to Yesod, ' The Foundation. The World card in the Tarot. You. The person who took this Lnca r'na t ion. The Cosmic Dancer. And we will remember REVELATION 16, verse 12 "The sixth poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, " and its waters were dried up

to prepare the way for the kings from the East. "

And who are the kings from

the East? Well, we happen to

be The ORDER of the TEMPLE of

the ORIENT. And it is written,

( AL III 45 ), speeking of the Scarlet Woman, "Then will I lift her to pinnacles of power:' then

will I breed from her a child mighter than all the kings of

the earth. I will fill her with joy: with my force shall she

see & strike at the worship of Nu; she shall achieve Hadito"

There is a very great mystery here. Well, the way this article got started, was that one. day this gal I was living with said, "I don't understand that." Meaning the sentence, " •.. she shall achieve Ha d I t." I .ju s t looked

at her strangely. My god, this woman had been into Thelema for

30 years. But it is like Aleister Crowley wrote to Karl Germer once, "It is incredible, but after all these years you do not know hoW Magick works." It does take a certain knack.

For example, 0t the O.T.O.

Tarot reading booth at Ren(naissanee) Faire, recently, there was a certain couple. He had invented his own Tarot deck and I saw no objection. After all, how many times during that fantastic year of 1969-1970 did I say to anyone who would listen, and there were damn few, .,.sorry ... just ran out of space.

Drdo Templi Orientis P.O. Box 2303

Berkeley, CA 94702 U.S.~

This month, it's t ime to de,"lt~

the Grand Lodge r-eport to r "0',' ,,110 procedures involving O.T.O. Co.erally.

At the local of the Grar~ I ~dGe Temple, work is proce2djn~ c~ ~ good pace toward completion J" '[1-,8 new Temple and office space. There wi l l aga in be some sma l ] prob I ems

in response to internal mail bf:":I'IPpn Grand Lodge and the ether Lodges, Chapters and Camps of the Order.

This is a natural result of ~~ving

the office and having to wait foY' things to settle in at the new location at 1500 Park st. in Emeryville, CA USA. We should have things back on an

even keel by mid December or earlier. Classes are going on, the Gnostic Mass has not suffred interruption and

the new location looks to be the best Temple for Grand Lodge to date.

With regard to the Magickal Link:

Many of you will be concerned that the #10 Link was Vf:"y late. This was a natural result of having to wait to

be sure of the final location of the New Temple. With this issue, we are 75% returned to the usual publication date. The December issue ~ill be on time, and the last day for #12 ML submissions to arrive at Grand lodge will be Nov .. lOth- .. the usual cut .. off date in the n~nth. Decen~er wail

will probably mean delays i~ the December and Janual~ Magickdl Link owing to postal problems. The #12 Newsletter will begin its Jften delajd printing next \'Jeek. ~1a.i1 ir«, fr r llL#12 is expected in early December. Keep your fingers crossed.

Quite a number of Camps and Chapters of O.T.O. are failing to report readyto-print information for the Magickal Link. The duty is at 18~st e 25 word

3!s inch col un.n every Cal er,dd. r qua rter. Unless reports are received from your body of O.T.O., don't be supr i sed if

it is dropped from the list in the

back of the January Link. We at Grand Lodge firmly believe that the 1IlE:l1lbers

of O.T.O. have a right to ~now what to expect at each Camp, Chapter and Lodge of 0, T .0. Only the Link can keep everybody up to date.

There are two deletions in this

issue for bodies of O.T.O.: Camp Sapp~o is inactive just now because the Master is in Greece for an educational year in Athens. Camp A.O. Spare has been suffering severe growing pains and is not functional in its new Chapter state.

A new name for the Columbus GA body was planned, but domestic disputes between members and similar personal violations of pax-templi of an over-blown sort are obstructing O.T.O. work in Georga. We hope to be able to report a settlement of this situation in a future issue of the Link, but the present situation

in Georga does not warrent official status.

Actually. it might be a good idea to list the things to lookfor in prevention of an unplanned failure of a body of

the Order. With so many new bodies coming in just now, these things should be kept in mind. Tile common causes of Lodge, Chapter and Camp failure in order of frBquency so far are these:

1. Failure to keep adequate records and/or defective management of funds.

2. Domestic arguements allowed to intrude on Order meetings.

3. Disrespect for the feelings of individual members, officers and que s ts.

4. Chan~es in residence of local members.

5. Excessive demands on one person to do all the work.

6. Gross misunderstandings or total indifference to the nature of O.T.O.

Most of these problems tend to cascade in a sort of chain reaction. #1 is the common cause of f. 3 and #5. #2 1 eads to all the others very quickly. The whole thing usually starts with either #1 or #2.

Most of the Lodges, Camps and Chapters of the Order are well run for their size; but as they grow, bodies of the Order need to pay close attention to problems #1 & #5.

Most of the bodies of the Order have constantly been a pleasure to their local members and a credit to the Order.

More instruction is needed in some locals. but this can grow with time.

No significant controls are placed on local bodies in the area of what to teach and what to study by Grand Lodge, but some programs of special study will of necessity be phased in for Lodges with members above Third Degree. This in time. The most pressing need is inter-

action between bodies of O.T.O. over goals, mutual aid and interpretation

of the Blue Equinox for this time and place. Events on the East Coast . reciently have highlighted the se~lousness of dealing with the Blue Equlnox constitutional matter head-on. Actual physical violence has errupted over this issue--two lower degree members attacked

rank i ng members who affi rmed the 81 ue Equincx goals. If we had been better prepa red for i nformi ng new members of this document, these two would probably never have wasted their time and temper in O.T.O.

Actually, things are looking good!

With these corrective measures in mind, they can get even better. Pax Temp11.

Here is a poem submitted by Frater Zardoz

Aleister, your life was in the past, Your OTO will last an aeon, maybe more. Aiwass, whose law of Love is Light. Deliver us from the devils, who tempt

us in the night.

Boleskine. with your Abra-Mer1in haunts, Echoes your taunts, that drive us to your

shores.

Again and again, again and again and again.

The 80's, her tyranny is falling fast,

The Night of Pan will an aeon, maybe more. Cry out. to legions of the Brave, .

Time again to save us from the devi l s of street.

Ride out, protectors of the realm, Caliph. at the helm, sail us across the tree of 1 ife.

Again and again. again and again and again.

Templar Knights. Templar Knights.

Official Monthly Bulletin of Ordo Templ; Orientis

Vol. 1, No. 12, December 1981 e.v. An. LXXVII e.n.

Do wrnt thou wilt shall be tbe uibole of the Law..

From the CALIPH

Ok, Genesis 2, part 3. The Four Rivers of Paradise.

-So this guy had invented his own Tarot And.that is OK. After all how many time; d~rlng that fantastic year of 1969-70 e.v. dld I say to anyone who would listen'

':Whe~ we get this Thoth deck pulblished,

1~ wl~l cause a whole new psychic vibrat10n 1n the Universe."? And that is exactly what has happened, and that is good. Un~ort~nately something else is happening WhlCh 1S not good. Because this guy's old

1 ady came over to me when I was readi ng Tarot cards at Ren. Faire ( I dron. hack on the Wai~e or Rider deck on occasi~n just for varlety. If anybody can find a set of the Manley P. Hall deck, for God's sake forward it to mee ... I lost mine) and laid out a spread. It was rather ·interesting. After all, every Tarot reader has their

own way of reading the psychic mirrors we call Tarot. But then she started to explain to me about how she was going to change the cards around on the Tree of Life. Unfortunately that is verboten. For a very simple reason. Those 22 cards the 22

Major Arcana, happen to repres~nt v~rious a~pects of your psychic body. For example, Blnah happens to be the pituatary gland in the back of your head •. Sometime I must explain to you why Pisces is represented

by a double moon that represents the back

of your creni a 1 cavity. Or why THE HIEROPHANT, the Taurus card, goes from Chokmah (your Agna Chakra ) to Chesed,

But Aleister CrGwley says it better.

Note 1, page 7, MAGICK IN THEORY AND PRACTICE ( the original ), he says:

"One who ought to have known better (Fr. Achad) tried to improve the Tree of Life by tUrning the Serpent of Wisdom upside down~ Yet he could not make his scheme symmetrical: his little remaining good sense revolted at the supreme atrociti es. Yet he succeeded in reducing the whole Magical Alphabet to nonsense, and shewing that he had never understood its real meaning.

The absurdity of any such disturbance of the Paths is evident to any sober student from such examples as the following: Binah. the Supernal Understanding, is connected with Tiphereth, the Human Con' -usnes s , by Zain, Gemini, the

Oracles a ' Gods, or the Intuition.

That is, t.,< attribution represents a psychological fact: to replace it by The Devil is either humour or plain idiocy. Again, the "Fortitude," Leo, balances Majesty and Mercy with Strength and Severity: what sense is there in putting "Death," the Scorpion, in its stead?"

-- If you see what I mean.

THE KNIGHT'S KORNER

Do what: tlmu wilh shall he the whOle rtf b he Caw.

The Knight's Korner wishes to thank those who have found "it in their heart to send articles to this column. One of them will appear now. following a few comments ..•

It is fitting that the Knights of Baphomet have a quest, a special

cause to devote their energies and thoughts towards the completion. Many good causes cross out minds, but one seems to stick out, that of working towards the implementation of the Nel'l Aeon. the Age of the Child Horus.

With this in mind, the following work was sent to this office by Frater i

Per Ardua of Montreal Canada. It s

length dictates severe editing for this short col umn ...

"Before re-incarnating. the entity

has full knowledge of how it wishes to progress. The re-incarnating ego has chosen the physical vehicle for incarnating and accepts the veil of "orgetfulness of infancy. Naked, vulne.able, the new born ego is at the mercy of its mentors ••. Unfortunately, the changes have led to indulgence of tile young rather than the correct di sc iilines being applied. This can only aggravate the situation and provide further food for the false ego.

In the previ GUS Pisceen age, religion did provide, rightly or wrongly. some guidelines for the young to follow.

With the passing of this restraining influence a vacuum was created which should have been filled by correct guidance and discipline. Instead, i~dulgence was viewed as en'~htenment, llSence was touted as fre~dom. and the 'Dawning of the age of Awuar l us ' was made responsible for all such problems.

"Codex Juvenis

Being a code of instruction and behaviour suita~e for application to the young it thi j <1e ' \ f Horus, the Crowned and Conquering Child. This Code is in accordance with the Law of Thelema and may be followed with advantage. by ~ny aspirant to or adept of the A .. A ..

"1, All prospective parents. natur~l

or otherwise, shall learn ana reallze their responsibilities as vehicles,of re-incarnation. In this shall there be complete equality of sex, Let ea~h partner appraise this statement 1n

the light of their feelings towards

one anot·her.

2. Sexual intercourse far the sale purpose of concepti on by the female shall be treated as a sacred ri tua l , a sacrament of the highest spiritual order and quality. preparing for same

as is described in the Tantric 'Sacred Marriage', 'Energized Enthusiasm' and other such works dealing with this su~ect. Knowledge and the application of astrological aspects shall be used to determine auspicious times relevant to conception and birth dates.

Lcost,a";y in c1 imax and orgasm shall be sa,;'··iflced for vt sua l.at ion. In this shall both partners be in complete accord. Thus shall the way be prepared for the re-incarnating ego to manifest in a fitting physical vehicle.

3. After conception, the female partner shall prepare for the birth by repeated and regular practices of meditation, skrying in the spirit vision, and

those ri tual s and ceremonies approved and proscribed by the A.' .A.·. and the oTO.

4. Befor·e the birth, both partners must be in complete agreement as to the amount and type of mundane influence allowable for the incarnating ego.

S, bject as we all are to lhl<'i,1ane laws, school and the inevitable religious impacts shall be assessed. Where pos,sible, the complete education of the

chi 1 d shall be under ta ken by the parents in conjunction with the Order.

5. After birth, the incarnated ego shall be, as soon as possible, introduced to esoteric symbology. Beginning with

simpl e geometric forms, such as the triangle, proceeding progressively to the pentagram and the hexag_ram, s imp l e forms of the Otz Chiim, the lree of Life and the Tarot.

No attempt shall be made to influence the ego toward any particular preference of symbology, but careful observance

shall be made to determine the direction of the 'go.

Love and discipline shall be give~ complete balance. All actions per fo rrned and indeed all association I .. ith the child shall support the incarnated ~go giving no cause ~~~ver for the creation of a false ego.

Every opportunity shall be given to the incarnated ego to learn by itself. In this shall the parents be guided only as to safety of the child. i.e •• let the child be burned by the fire, or bitten by the dog, or scratched by the cat, as long as the [esson is 1 earned.

Causes of fear shall be faced and overcome. Let the child climb the tree if it so wills. Let the parents show no fear for the safety of the c hi l d ;"

Events at Grand Lodge have

been moving fast this last month. We

are settling into the new temple at.1500 Park St. in Emeryville, but the offlce space is still a bit out of control .. In December we expect to be more orgam zed. but unti1 then, it's a good idea to keep an extra copy of any correspondence that was sent to the Grand Lodge. After a couple of months, unless th~re is a responce you mi ght want to remt nd us about the l;latter. Some rather important matters have been delaid because of moving.

Tape orders have been delaid for

some months now. After getting a p~rtial order of blank tapes from our suppller, the company went out of business: We have located a new supplier, and we wlll not

be raising prices. Tape orders .of s~veral months standing are just now belng fllled.

The new electronic equipment at

Grand Lodge has already begun expanding persona 1 servi ces to members. We a re now ' able to send out letters of greeting to new

initiates, substantial reports to local bodies on the records at Grand Lodge and individual timely reports to individual members. Starting now, if you want to get

a current statement of your financial record

at Grand Lodge ( dues & fees paid, purchases, debit or credit balances, etc. ) and your

name begins with A through F (last name)

you can have an almost immediate response. Requests for a statement from Grand Lodge

should be sent directly to the Grand

Treasurer General: Dill Heidrick, 5 Suffield Ave., San Anselmo, CA 94960 USA; and should include a stamped, self-addressed envelope.

If such requests are limited to a financial statement, immediate 24hr response should be expected. This is only available for

last names A-F this month. more will be available later as the present set.of entries expands. Reports are ~ sent to the people who's financial records themselves are requested.

LI'fTLE ESSAYS TOWARD TROTH

Stellar Visions haw offers this, out of print, gem by Aleister Crowley on the ·T~ance States".

Books for the be9i nne r , by this ge~iug of the occult arts and sCiences, # are all too r~r:e. If you wish to start your studies of the large body of material by Alei~ter Crowley with "I~ittle Essays Toward Truth', 1''''' won't be disappointed.

The glossary explaining the

meaning of many of the Magical and Mystieal terms, which are also used by many other authors in the Occult wo~ld, is itself worth the purchase price to the new student.

This edition contains two diagrams lett out in the early seventIes in the last print.ing. It 15 it very good introduction to many of the concepts ex pa nd ed upon in· BOOK 4".

STEJ,LAR VISIONS I

The first edition, of our £11:"t magazine, was wate~colored by hand on many pa.ges, and since so many hours were requ i t-ed to produce it, only 38 numbered copy" were ever made. Due to nume r oo s eeque s t.s , we have decided to reprint it in black and white.

It contains ·Soul of the Degert" by Aleister Crowley "Stepping out of the Old Aeon into the New" and other original material by member" of the O.T.O .. There is an article on the power of the pyramid witt. an additional comment by n·ater Meithra" XI' O.T.O., and the first Cosmic News and Views by Soror Celesta.

STELLAR VISIONS II

'Stellar Visions II· contains

never before published Crowley works from the Syracuse Collection. These were collected and typeget by Fr~ tel' Heithrasl

The ·Conatltutl.on of the Order of Thelemites" (though never implemented by Crowley) , contains so nUch t nf o rma t Lon that it is surpr.i9ing that it was never printed before now.

"A Letter on hrt to Lady Frieda Harris" from Cl"owley contains aome of the instructions for pal.nting the • Thot.h Tarot Cards' now used by so many.

·Cefalu· also by Ale ister Crowley is II guide to tile Abbey of Thelerna, mentioned in "Col1fessions· and many other places. The rare descr iptions of the rooms, painti.ngs, and other aspects of life there are invaluable.

·Clear Crowley's Name Campaign" by Grady L McMurtry, has been lost for many years. Since it was written long before he became head of the a.T.O., it makes clear some of the attitudes that

~~~. haN~et l;gd m!~tr;~ lh~mo{~~~a.;ge t~~

him, by Crowley, of the "Caliphate Papers". These empowe red him to ""form the 0.'1'.0. at a time when it was in danger of losing its continuity.

There is poetry ano art b~ Crowley and others.

There is a190 'An open letter to Robert Anton Wilson", by F~ater IAKASAI and 'Across the GUlf", which crowley states is a descriptlon of his life as Ankh-f-n-Khonsu, and mOre.
