The “standard” first edition limited to 903 copies (there was also a 97 copy “edition deluxe”). A collection of essays on Eastern Mysticism by Kenneth Grant, of the the Nu Isis Lodge of the Typhonian O.T.O. Written from the early 1950s onwards, the essays centre revolve around a number of teachers, including Ramana Maharshi, Pagal Haranath, Ramakrishna, Anandamayi Ma, Sivananda, and others. They were originally published in a various Asian journals, as well as the series Man, Myth and Magic. Several of the essays explore the concept of Advaita, which Grant feels permeated Crowley’s work, and which apparently underpinned his own Typhonian Trilogies. Dustwrapper design by Steffi Grant.
