NEW TO THELEMA?

Are you new to Thelema, and want to know more information? The Thelemic Union has compiled several resources on different subjects, including introductory reading lists and self-study materials.

The Basics

Thelema is a philosophical, mystical, and cultural system that is based upon a seemingly simple premise: DO WHAT THOU WILT. This phrase, called the Law of Thelema, is not to be interpreted as a license to indulge in whim, but rather as a mandate to discover and fulfill one’s essential nature or path in life, which is called True Will (those who are dedicated to this path are called Thelemites). This Will is the expression of one’s deepest, most genuine self which acts in perfect accord with the Universe.

Thelema began in 1904 with the writing of a short text, titled The Book of the Law (which is often abbreviated as Liber Legis, Liber AL, or simply AL), by the British author, mystic, and poet, Aleister Crowley. This small book was to form the foundation of a complex system designed to promote True Will in both individuals and culture as a whole.

5 writings on Thelema by Aleister Crowley

These are 5 short pieces written by Aleister Crowley which serve as good introductions to the philosophy of Thelema:

  • Liber OZ: A Declaration of the Rights of Man
  • The Message of the Master Therion explains the essence of the new Law in a very simple manner.
  • Liber Tzaddi vel Hamus Hermeticus: An account of Initiation, and an indication as to those who are suitable for the same.
  • De Lege Libellum: A further explanation of the Book of the Law, with special reference to the Powers and Privileges conferred by its acceptance.
  • Duty: A note on the chief rules of practical conduct to be observed by those who accept the Law of Thelema.
