Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law!
Listen, we pray you, with attention:
for once only does the Great Order
knock at any one door.
Aleister Crowley “Liber LXI vel Causae”
Basileus Ordo Templi Orientis is initiational organization with activity based upon the system of Aleister Crowley’s Ordo Templi Orientis and creed of Liber AL vel Legis and Liber OZ.
The Order assists its members with their research in Western and Eastern Mystery: Hermetism, Egyptian Magick, Gnosticism, Qabalah, Alchemy, Enochian Magick, Tarot, Yoga, Thelema etc.
One of the main Order’s goals is to further its members by path of Opus Magnum through system of initiation degrees and associated magickal work.
Initiational system of the Order consists of three true grades, as it was written in Liber AL vel Legis: the Hermit, and the Lover, and the man of Earth. These grades for technical purposes are subdivided into 0°-XI° degrees.
Basileus Ordo Templi Orientis doesn’t include A .’. A .’., but it is in conspiracy with this organization. The Order is purely magickal structure and it practically provides initiational transmission from Spirit directly.
The governing body of the Order is the Highest Council which consists of masters of all the departments and special guest persons. Administrative-territorial units of the Order are the Temples and the Lodges. In addition to working within initiational system, the members of the Order realize magickal studying activities according to principles of scientific illuminism and educational activities for spreading the Order’s influence worldwide.
The Order’s membership is obtained through initiation procedure and carrying out of instructions of given degree. In exceptional cases it is possible for one to be declared as initiated without the procedure of initiation – by decision of authorized Order’s master, after appropriate expertise – according to actual fact of personal Achievement.
