It was edited and introduced by Dr. Israel Regardie , and is a reference book based on the Hermetic Qabalah. The modern golden dawn system put a strange new spin on the Jewish version of the Kabbalah. The old Kabbalah was an early Jewish form of Torah commentary that was prominent in the sixteenth century via the book the Zohar. It introduced the diminishing Four Worlds , God as the transcendent Ain Soph , Israel as embodying the Shekinah , or "presence", as children of the True God, and most popularly the ten Sephiroth as schema of the universe between Israel and Jehovah. It did this by interpreting the concrete ethics of the scripture rather than, say, the universal parable more evident in the gospels.

This is a true classic, a definitive reference volume, the correspondence tables are comprehensive and it's also fascinating - Crowley could make even a dry reference book an interesting read. Three stars off, however, for the blood libel against the Jews of Eastern Europe in the original text.

Israel Regardie did excise it from the edition I own Weiser hardcover ISBN 0 6 , saying "It is a nasty, malicious piece of writing, and does not do justice to the system with which he is dealing. But he could also be a racist bigot, and apparently even he didn't see the stupidity in making anti-Jewish remarks or anti-Black, as he sometimes did while promoting a religion grounded in Jewish mysticism and northern African deities.
DO read Crowley. He had a lot of important ideas, and there's much to be learned from him. That Regardie continued to promote his work in spite of the bigoted comments speaks for the quality of the writing.
Just don't make an infallible god king of him - or anyone. View 1 comment. Recommended to Yael by: Discovered it in a book store in Santa Barbara. Shelves: reference. Sorry about the German edition -- for some weird reason this site doesn't list the English-language edition of Crowley's Qaballistic reference work. I don't speak much German, and only have the English-language version, and Other Qabalistic Writings of Aleister Crowley Including Gematria and Sepher Sephiroth , edited and with an introduction by Israel Regardie, which is what I'm reviewing here.
At any rate, I have found this work to be one of the most useful resources on esoteric subjects I ha Sorry about the German edition -- for some weird reason this site doesn't list the English-language edition of Crowley's Qaballistic reference work. At any rate, I have found this work to be one of the most useful resources on esoteric subjects I have ever run across. Book 1 discusses Gematria, a powerful tool for analyzing language and harnessing it for Magickal ritual.
Book 3 is a Qaballistic dictionary indexed by the numbers and various Hebrew words and phrases associated with each one in terms of the sum of the values of the Hebrew letters in each not all the larger indexing numbers are listed, however, and of those that are given, many are without corresponding Hebrew associations , along with a display of the Hebrew alphabet and the numerical value or values of each of its letters some Hebrew letters have more than one value, depending on where they fall in a word.
In addition, Israel Regardie's introduction provides fascinating insights on Qaballah as well as a discussion of the history of this work and of Crowlety himself. In Book 1 of this work, Crowley discusses the definition of Qaballah: a set of distinct numbers in bijective correspondence with a set of distinct alphanumeric symbols.
He doesn't phrase it quite that way, but that's the meaning of what he says there. He also says that which numbers are used as the indexing set for those symbols can be whatever you wish them to be, as long as you are consistent. Depending on the numbers and symbols, it may not be traditional Qaballah, and would be regarded among Qaballistis as a theological abomination, but for purposes of mathematical analysis, those conditions fulfill the definition of Qaballah.
The symbols could include, e. The first two of those sets of 93 elements and a building component blank, hydrogen reflect the 93 current of the New Aeon of Horus. To accommodate them on the Tree of Life, additional vertical planes of Left and Right Pillars each at right angles to the traditional, original plane and with one another can be added, each containing six new Sephiroth , in a process continuing indefinitely, producing Trees of Life of 3, 4, 5,.
Given that a Path, or Atu, on the Tree of Life is a bijective function associating any two Sephiroth , then, via the process of expansion described above, the n-dimensional Tree of Life will have as many Paths and Sephiroth as needed to accommodate any given set of distinct alphanumeric symbols, however large the latter may be.
A Tree of Life for the Multiverse! As for Books 2 and 3, I use them all the time for various purposes. Among other things, Book 2 provides a tremendous number of ideas for things that can be used to reinforce the efficacy of Magickl ritual: planets, colors, Hebrew letters and words, alchemical concepts, gemstones, perfumes, elixirs, incenses, Buddhist concepts, the Gods of various cultures, the names of God, angles, archangels, you name it, anything can be indexed precisely by Qaballah.
Among other things, each element -- each Path and Sephirah -- on the Tree of Life is itself a complete Tree of Life, each of the elements of which is a complete Tree of Life, and so on to infinity. So there's room for anything you wish there. The Tree is a fractal structure, self-replicating and never growing any less complex no matter how many levels of magnification you go on it.
Both as a wonderful reference work for Qaballists, students of the Tarot, Magickians, alchemists, astrologers, and other students and practitioners of the esoteric Arts and Sciences, and cultural anthropologists, mathematicians for the enjoyment of the intricate structure of the Tree of Life and its possible extentions , and Jungian psychologists, this book will be a great addition to any thinking person's personal library.
It should be available in an English-language edition from Samuel Weiser's, or, if it is out of print, amazon. Nota bene : The beauty of the extended version of the Tree of Life is that the original, traditional version is preserved within it, undistorted and intact, protected by the additional "struts" that are the new Paths added to fill out the system of connections among Sephiroth.
Also, on a purely mathematical level, topologically speaking this entity is infinitely connected, as figures such as the Mandelbrot set, Koch curve, or Peano space are not. Jan 09, Marie added it Shelves: magick. Reference book. Haven't read front to back -- The section on Gematria is a very interesting series of essays on Kaballah. May 07, The Elves rated it really liked it. This is a good book, however, even Crowley knew it was incomplete and wrote that he hoped to expand it one day or that someone else would do so, which he never got around to doing.
Still, this is a good substitute and the essays that have been added may be interesting for some to read. Interesting in most cases, even entertaining, but often empty at their core. Dec 26, Tony rated it really liked it. Qabala reference book interspersed with nuggets of wisdom, analysis and explanatory information. Most useful for those well versed in Qabalistic practices. Not for the beginner. Nov 17, Lodane rated it did not like it. The Star Review is the total of what I have to say about this book, specifically.
This was the readily available faith in my household as a child. Additionally, I worked for a company in this field, , and had to read an ocean of this stuff to do my job. Jan 25, M. Stern rated it really liked it. Jan 13, Ken Nunyerbeez rated it it was amazing Shelves: a-a-student-grade-material. Just a few of us have found this to be a very useful reference book, to put it mildly ;.
