The Magical Philosophy sets forth the mysteries of the Aurum Solis with no intent of rivalry with the Rosicrucian mysteries. Each tradition enshrines in its own manner the central fact and ideal of adepthood. Each tradition has its distinctive teachings, each makes its special contribution to the sublime record of the Western Mysteries Each calls forth its own members from those of the human race who are all at once prompted, by some deep inner impulse, to look upwards.
The Ogdoadic Tradition is demonstrably the older, and its influence upon Western spirituality, philosophy and culture has been profound.
