Ordo Templi Orientis is an international initiatory Fraternity dedicated to the promotion of the Hermetic Sciences and the establishment of the Law of Thelema.
"The O.T.O. declares that Brotherhood of All Things Created is a fact of Nature ... The principal purpose of the O.T.O. is to teach True Brotherhood, and to make it a living power in the life of humanity." -OTO Constitution, Article II, Sections 1 and 2
We continue the work of Aleister Crowley, Thelema, the Gnostic Catholic Church, and the Hermetic Brotherhood of Light.
We are pledged to the principles of The Book of the Law, namely:
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
Love is the law, love under will.
Our goal is not to proselytize, recruit, convert, or coerce. You will never be encouraged to join OTO by our Encampment, that decision is solely yours and we will not molest the purity of that choice. Also, note that not being a member of OTO does not bar you from public events. Association is welcomed.
Civilization is crumbling under our eyes and I believe that the best chance of saving what little is worth saving, and rebuilding the Temple of the Holy Ghost on plans, and with material and workmanship, which shall be free from the errors of the former, lies with the O.T.O. - The Confessions of Aleister Crowley
