This book reveals the secret of how the kabbalistic Tree of Life diagram is systematically built in a series of steps from Ain Sof to Malkut. It shows how each step involves combining the twenty-two Hebrew letters in certain conformations to produce the ten sefirot and the twenty-two pathways. The end-result includes a new path configuration that solves many mysteries of the Sefer Yetzirah and the Zohar. During the course of the book information is drawn from the ancient texts: Sefer Berashit, Sefer Yetzirah, and the Zohar (i.e. Sefer Dtzenioutha, Ha Idra Rabba Qadisha, and Ha Idra Zuta Qadisha).

understand that scrying is as much a learned skill as is reading or ice-skating. Persistent practice is necessary to teach the nervous system how to do it, even where the person has some innate talent. And as with other learned skills, there is a learning curve. At first there will be a long period when you don’t seem to be making any significant progress. Then things will suddenly fall together and your practice will improve markedly in a short period, before leveling off again at something close to your highest level of skill.
THE KEITTIKAS. Nakshatras in old Vedic times generally mean asterisms and not aodiacal portions—The present and the older position of the solstices —In later works—In Vcdanga Jyotiaha—An objection against its antiquity examined—Passages in the Taittiriya Sanhita and Brabamana— The Kfittikas head the Nakshatras—Deva and Yama Nakshatras—Their real meaning—Taittiriya Sanhitft vii. 4, 8. discussed—Jaimini''s and Sbabara''s interpretation of the same— Conclusions deducible therefrom—Winter solstice in Magha—Vernal equinox in the Krittikas—The age of the Sanhiti—2350 B. C.— Bentley''s arguments and views criticised. We Have seen that the ancient Aryas originally commenced their year, which was luni-solar and siderial, with the vernal equinox, and that when the beginning was changed to the winter solstice both the reckonings were kept up, the one for sacrificial and the other for civil purposes. Let us now examine if there is any reliable evidence to show that the Vedic priests made any corrections in the calendar when by the precession of the equinoxes the cycle of seasons gradually fell back. All our present calendars are prepared on the supposition that the vernal equinox still coincides with the end of Revali and our enumeration of the Nakshatras begins with Ashvint, though the equinox has now receded about 18 from Revati. It has been shown by Prof. Whitney (Surya Siddhanta, viii"., 9 note, p. 211) that the above position of the vernal equinox may be assumed to be true at about 490 A. 0 Taking this as the probable date of the introduction of the present system, we have now to see if we can trace back the position of the vernal equinox amongst the fixed circle of stars. The question, so far, as one antecedent stage is concerned, has been thoroughly discussed.
Burmese meditation master Sayadaw U Pandita shows us that freedom is as immediate as breathing, as fundamental as a footstep. In this book he describes the path of the Buddha and calls all of us to that heroic journey of liberation. Enlivened by numerous case histories and anecdotes, In This Very Life is a matchless guide to the inner territory of meditation as described by the Buddha.

A Handbook for the Humanistic Astrologer is one of the most influential and widely read books on serious astrology published during the 20th century. It was an immediate success when first published in 1974, and since 1987 it has been regarded as the most highly prized and sought after out-of-print astrological classic. A handbook introduced astrology to a new generation of educated seekers turning to astrology not to know "what will happen and how it can be avoided if it's unpleasant" but to discover their innate potential and life purpose. Readers first exposed to serious astrology through this volume figure largely among today's leading astrologers and astrological writers. The volume not only changed the way we view astrology and what we expect from it, A Handbook for the Humanistic Astrologer forever changed the look and feel of astrological literature and horoscope graphics. It's concise format and presentation style has been emulated by numerous publications, and its entirely original horoscope graphics, first developed by the author during the 1960's, have been copied (unacknowledged) by countless astrological books, horoscope calculation services and astrology software developers. Founded upon the repeatedly proven premise that anyone can quickly learn the core principles of astrology and put them to use to improve ones life and relationships, A Handbook for the Humanistic Astrologer intentionally avoids the usual cookbook format in favor of exploring astrology's fundamental concepts and principles. In it and in his other works, such as The Astrology of Relationship, Michael R. Meyer demonstrates his unmatched ability to make astrology accessible to everyone.
The Essential Guide opens the door to the darkly resplendent worlds of the Left Hand Path. Part philosophical treatise, part ontological stand-up comedy, and part magical practicum, this book makes clear what many other books have only hinted at. For people with wit and perseverance, this book is a training manual for super-men and women. Don Webb has been a practitioner of the Left hand path since the 1970s. He is the former High Priest of the Temple of Set, the world's largest Left Hand Path organization, and the author of the best-selling Seven Faces of Darkness.
Exploring the Unnamable is a book of pathworkings utilizing chosen concepts from the Lovecraftian magic. It is based on a project of astral and dream-workings conducted by Lodge Magan in the years 2003-2007. The Labyrinths of Zin are a part of the Lovecraftian realm of the Dreamlands, existing outside the world of waking. In Necronomicon magic they are identified with the Tunnels of Set, the dark paths which link the eleven Qlipothic spheres on the Tree of Night. The book contains chosen accounts of work with the Labyrinths which may be used as meditations and dream-workings by those who seek to attune themselves to the Necronomicon current, the vast potential of extra-terrestial gnosis, representing an eternal promise of evolutionary transcendence.
