The Magickal Union of East and West: The Spiritual Path to New Aeon Tantra by Gregory H. Peters #BookReview

 
Can Eastern and Western magickal systems be merged? The magickal order, the Ordo Sunyata Vajra, successfully did so by eliminating the cultural trappings and unnecessary mystery surrounding Hindu and Buddhist Tantric magick and filtering it through the Western Thelemic tradition. This book reveals their secrets, providing exercises for integrating mind and body with the universal energy of the cosmos. It culminates with instructions for their ultimate magickal ritual, the Diamond Sapphire Gem of Radiant Light. Unlike traditional methods where years of study and practice are required before learning such advanced material, these practices are immediately accessible to students of all levels. Also used is a more universal Thelema that transcends the Crowley-centric view, resulting in a New Aeon of magickal possibility and potential for all spiritual seekers.




Gregory Peters (Stanford, CA) has contributed scholarly articles on Freemasonry and Thelema in local and international publications. He has been a student and teacher of esoteric systems of self-discovery for twenty years, and has held offices in Western esoteric orders. A close student of Phyllis Seckler (Soror Meral) and a senior member of Crowley's magical fraternity the A∴A∴, Peters founded the Ordo Sunyata Vajra in 1999. He lives and works in the San Francisco Bay area.

There was a lot of terminology in this book that made this book so hard to read. There were a lot of things in this book that I had to look up in order to understand the book. I think that there were a lot of issues with this book.
