EBOOK Aleister Crowley

Aleister CrowleyLlege dorm rooms and his methods of ceremonial magick animate the passions of myriad occultists and spiritual seekers Aleister Crowley is than just a biography of this compelling controversial and divisive figure it’s also a portrait of his unparalleled influence on modern pop cultur Lachman is very judgmental here which makes me want to do the same Beyond good and evil is not necessarily something to be frowned upon— one of the goals in Buddhism can be to look at the world without dualism Interpreting Crowley through the lens of tantric Buddhism one does not reach the same conclusions that Lachman consistently finds As well I'm not convinced of Crowley's profound cultural influences — his picture on an album cover could mean as little as a designer being naughty Speaking of cultural influence Lachman repeatedly refers to the writer William S Burroughs as William Burroughs Jr Williams S Burroughs is not exactly obscure so perhaps this reference should have been fixed Made me wonder about the accuracy and fact checking of the rest of the text Worst of all Lachman constantly throughout refers to his other books which is very off putting
