Gnostic Mass Liber XV
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. Please join 418 Lodge in our celebration of the Gnostic Mass (Liber XV). The Mass will begin at 6:00 pm (please arrive between 5:30 and 6:00). Attendance is free, but donations are appreciated. Regarding the Mass, Crowley wrote in his 'Confessions': "I resolved that my Ritual should celebrate the sublimity of the operation of universal forces without introducing disputable metaphysical theories. I would neither make nor imply any statement about nature which would not be endorsed by the most materialistic man of science. On the surface this may sound difficult; but in practice I found it perfectly simple to combine the most rigidly rational conceptions of phenomena with the most exalted and enthusiastic celebration of their sublimity." If you've not attended a Mass before, I'd encourage you to check out the links below: To familiarize yourself with the basic symbolism and ideas presented: http://www.thelemapedia.org/index.php/The_Gnostic_Mass And the full annotated text of the ritual can be found here: http://hermetic.com/sabazius/gnostic_mass.htm And any further questions can be directed here: [masked] Hope to see you there! Love is the law, love under will.

What we're about

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

418 Lodge is a chartered body of Ordo Templi Orientis located in the valley of Sacramento, California. We are a community of men and women united in our pursuit of the knowledge and accomplishment of our “True Will”, defined as the one perfect and unique path for each individual. To this end, we regularly celebrate the Gnostic Mass, our central public ritual, and conduct initiations into the various degrees of the OTO. We also sponsor classes and other opportunities for learning and fellowship among the initiates.

Love is the law, love under Will.
