Asharu Tradition

Nightcaller’s Bibliography & Suggested Reading List

Dear Brothers and Sisters.

There is a steady increase in new people who are drawn to our wonderful Tradition. Therefore I thought it would be good to post a suggested reading list of works that aided me greatly in my personal studies. Some of the works on this list are obvious choices, and some are the more obscure works which I found through careful study and research. Everyone would do well to explore these works through studies of their own, as they will greatly increase one’s knowledge about many important issues.

  1. what a wonderful library!

    I would also suggest Liber ABA: I-IV, (aka “the big blue brick”, hardcover 900+ pages!) by Aleister Crowley, edited by Hymenaeus Beta. NOT light reading, but a scholarly work that took years to compile… Crowley has to sometimes be ‘read between the lines’ due to moral restrictions of the times, he simply couldn’t come out and say what he meant for fear of being thrown in jail. The often mis-quoted line(usually by Xian evangelists) about ‘sacrifice of a male child’ refers to masturbatory sex magick, NOT human sacrifice, for example. His dry English humor was often taken seriously… if you were foolish enough to believe some of the garbage that was said about him, he was kooky enough to egg you on even farther! LOL (I am NOT saying he was an ‘angel’, but a flawed human being with a special gift)

  2. Thanks Brother!

    Some time ago I placed an order for Crowley’s work, but unfortunately it was sold out at that particular bookstore…

    It is, however, still on my list!

  7. that’s a pretty thick list there. Try to read as many of those as possible – this site has always been a great resource.

  8. 🙂 Thank you! We try our best! This list was compiled from the works I collected during my early studies. In the meantime my library has grown to about twenty times the number found on this list. 😀 Perhaps soon I will publish a new suggested reading list, containing works more in tune with the Asharuic teachings.
