The Law is for All

The Law is for All: The Authorized Popular Commentary to the Book of the Law by Aleister Crowley, edited with an introduction by Israel Regardie, the 1985 second printing of the second edition softcover from Falcon Press, is part of the collection at the Reading Room.

It is worth noting that in this edition, in the front matter, “A Paraphrase of the Inscriptions upon the Obverse of the Stèle of Revealing” has “Aum! let it kill me!”


The Hermetic Library Reading Room is an imaginary and speculative future reification of the library in the physical world, a place to experience a cabinet of curiosities offering a confabulation of curation, context and community that engages, archives and encourages a living Western Esoteric Tradition. If you would like to contribute to the Hermetic Library Reading Room, consider supporting the library or contact the librarian.

Kill Me!

Hermetic Library fellow Colin Campbell has a new post about the recent update from OTO Grand Lodge that includes a new development in the long-standing issue of Aleister Crowley‘s poetic rendering of the Stele of Revealing offering two versions in print, and as it appears transcluded within the Book of the Law, Liber AL vel Legis, over on his blog at “Kill Me!” And, makes note also of how this relates to The Concordance of the Holy Books of Thelema:

“For those of you kind enough to have purchased The Concordance of the Holy Books of Thelema, all of the proceeds of which go to USGL, incidentally, this means striking verse III:37 from page 248 and adding it to the bottom of 258 under “kill”. For those of you that have not yet obtained a copy, there are more available, so you should definitely purchase one and then make the correction.” [via]

Stele of Revealing replica of the miniatures commissioned by Aleister Crowley

I’ve mentioned before Moroton which is a project to raise money to support the development of Ordo Templi Orientis in Poland, and wanted to mention both that Moroton has awarded a signed Ozzy Osborne CD already to a supporter, and that, upcoming, another item being raffled to one lucky supporter, with a minimum donation of £10 by Sep 22, is “a small replica of Stele of Revealing which was commissioned by Aleister Crowley so that it could be included on the display of bookshops that were selling his Equinox of the Gods.” So, you might be interested in supporting this effort and having a chance to pick up a reward for your support.

Update 24aug2012 @ 10:52a:

I talked to Moroton about this and have gotten clarification on the provenance of the item on offer as a supporter reward, and wanted to make sure I posted an update. Still a cool item, but I’ve changed the post title to better reflect the facts, and this:

“It is actually a replica of a replica done by Company of Heaven (Gary Dickinson). [We] only realised the description was ambiguous once the email was sent, apologies for that. Today in the News item on the page and on FB I will clarify the matter.”

Concerning Death by Aleister Crowley in International, Dec 1917.

“Then follow in thy mind the wondrous word of the Stélé of Revealing itself. Return if thou wilt from the abode of the stars; dwell with mortality, and feast thereon. For thou art this day made Lord of Heaven and of Earth.” [via]

The Spinning Mantra


“Ray Sherwin performs The Spinning Mantra from the funerary stele of Ankh af na Khonsu. Recorded at The Hermitage in 1990. The stele was exhibit number 666 at The Bulaq (French, Beautiful Lake) Museum in Cairo when Rose Edith Kelly pointed it out to Aleister Crowley in 1904.”
