by Aleister Crowley with additional notes by Jake Stratton-Kent.
Jake Stratton-Kent has carefully expanded the abbreviated and skeletonic sections of Liber Pyramidos, restored headings and numbered the sub-rituals. It is the author’s understanding that this ritual is not identical with the A.·.A.·. Initiation rite (TROA) referred to in the Dominus Liminus task and elsewhere, but is very closely related to it. He is also aware that certain parties, including the O.T.O., are opposed to information being released concerning that ritual. On this occasion the author is in agreement with the Caliph, accordingly, while certain documents have been consulted to make this the most definitive text possible, no expanded commentary, and no comparisons with the unpublished text of TROA have been included.
