The Eye in the Triangle
Aleister Crowley, the greatest Magus of the twentieth century, redefined the very basis of the Western Esoteric Tradition. His incalculably vast influence reaches through all modern occultism. Whether acknowledged or not, he is the father of the modern arts of ceremonial magick, western tantra, tarot and wicca. His devotees ascribe even greater significance to his life, regarding him as the Prophet of the Modern Age.

In 1928, at the age of 53, Crowley was living in Paris when Israel Regardie, a 21 year old disciple, nervously presented himself to become Crowley’s personal secretary. Thus began the most significant relationship of Regardie’s life. Although they were to have a bitter parting some time later, this experience caused Regardie to devote his next five decades to spreading Crowley’s message and tending the flame of his memory—at a time when that was an unpopular, unrewarding and lonely task.

The Eye in the Triangle provides an accurate, humorous and brilliantly insightful look into the man whom many still regard as “The Wickedest Man in the World.” Fasten your seat belts and get ready to enter the magical world of Aleister Crowley as seen through the eyes of Israel Regardie.

The Equinox – Volume III, Number 10
Along with his written works, Aleister Crowley’s legacy includes the organization he is credited with founding, the OTO or Ordo Templi Orientis — The Order of Oriental Templars. This book contains key introductory material to this contemporary occult society, along with a history of the Order after Crowley’s death.

The format of this edition matches that of the first Equinox series published with Crowley as editor and includes magical instruction, communications to OTO members (all the dirt on court cases the OTO has been involved in), and original works of fiction and poetry. As part of this latter category, this book features an illustrated study of the works of underground filmmaker Kenneth Anger with a complete filmography.

It could be argued that Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) anticipated the entire New Age phenomenon with his methods of teaching, codified in the tenets of the OTO. A rich melange of ritual magic, traditional spiritual practice, drug use, and sex, borrowing from many different cultures and traditions, informed the development of this lasting magical system. Although he’s been popularized (and demonized) as The Beast, 666, his teachings have shown lasting value.

The softcover edition: which is a revised “second printing” of the work originally published in hard cover limited edition in 1986. The volume contains a wealth of introductory and other documents pertaining to the O.T.O., a history of the Order after Crowley’s death, including an account of their legal dispute with Marcelo Motta, and various works of magical instruction, poetry, essays etc., plus a study of the films of Kenneth Anger with a filmography.
