"Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law."

Dictated to Crowley in Cairo between noon and 1:00p.m. on three successive days in April 1904, The Book of the Law is the source book and key for Crowley students and for the occult in general.

The holy text that forms the basis of Crowley's belief system, Thelema, was transmitted to him by the entity known as Aiwass over the course of three fateful April days in 1904.

With his wife Rose as the medium for what would become known as the Cairo Working, Crowley dutifully transcribed the communications on hotel stationery.

The pamphlet has since passed into occult legend.

Its full title is Liber AL vel Legis, sub figura CCXX, as delivered by XCIII=418 to DCLXVI, and it is commonly referred to as The Book of the Law.

Although the "messenger" of AL was Aiwass, Aiwass presents the Book as an expression of three god-forms of the three chapters, Nuit, Hadit, and Ra-Hoor-Khuit.

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. This oft-misunderstood phrase, which forms the basis for Crowleys practise of Magick, is found in The Book of the Law. Dictated to Crowley in Cairo on three successive days in April 1904, it is the sourcebook for Crowley students and occultist in general. This deluxe edition features new scans of the original manuscript, with Crowleys notes and annotations found in a later draft of the work.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Should you buy this book? 17. Juli 2000
I love this book and read it again and again. Should you buy this book though? Well the entire text is available online all over the place. If you use a decent search engine like Google.com you will have no trouble finding it. So the reason for buying this book is if you wanted a nice bound copy of the text (In which case you have probably already read it a few times and know that's what you want and do not even need to bother reading this review).
If you aren't familiar with this book and you are curious I recommend first taking a look at it online and then purchasing "The Law Is for All : The Authorized Popular Commentary of Liber Al Vel Legis, the Book of the Law". The book of the law was kind of hard for me to read the first few times. "The Law is for All" is the Book of the Law with a Commentary by Aleister Crowleys. Parts of the commentary can really help out in studying the book of the law. Also I recommend visiting some of the thelemic websites out there (search "thelema"). Terms like Thelema, Nuit, Hadit, Khabs, Khu, Ankh-af-na-Khonsu, and Hoor Paar Kraat don't make much sense and are a little intimidating without a little outside commentary. There is also a very short paper called "Duty" by Aleister Crowley available on the internet which I think explains the major concepts of Thelema quite well. Highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Every man and every WoMan is a Star 11. Dezember 1999
Although I love Crowley's writing and enjoyed this book very much, I am hardly going to claim I understood The Book of the Law. Many curious phrases that were scryed by Crowley, or, dictated, in Cairo in 1904 stating that the author is Aiwass (which is why there is no author of this book) which took three nights to write. Whatever the other reviews below may say might be right, for I believe it is vague enough for anyone to gain something from it. If you like style in writing, then this book is a good reccomendation if you disregard the content as being literal. If you are curious what all the hoopla surrounding this book is, dont be shy, its not a long book (50pgs), so it wont take you out of your way in the course of your reading. Not a neccessity in everyones library, but certainly for the occultist. My favorite line: "He shall fall down into a pit called Because, and there he shall perish with the dogs of Reason." (p32)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Destroy This Book... 22. Februar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
... Well not really :) Liber Al vel Legis can be viewed as an essay on the relationship of Man and "god". This book, "received" by Aleister Crowley on his honeymoon in 1904 is a powerfull work that can break through people's preconceptions (misconceptions?) of reality, religion and Man's place in the cosmos.
I have read this book more times than I can count, and always come away with new insights... not so much insights into the text, but insights into my own self. Reading this book is an agent of change, one cannot help being changed by reading this...be it for the better or the worse.
(Such is the reason for Crowley's famous Comment appended to the end of the text, and the joke in the title of this review.)
A previous reviewer blasts this book and paradigm for "borrowing" from other religions and beliefs, but to me this is the sublime beauty of it. Crowley or Aiwass (whomever you choose to think the author is), did steal and borrow from all religions, finding the common threads, and weaving a wonderfull web out of the best, and disposing of the rest.
Overall, even if one is not interested in Thelema, magick, or anything out of the "ordinary", I would recommend this short book just to challenge what you believe and what you hold to be true

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ein wertvolles Kulturgut....!! 10. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Ich habe das Liber Al gelesen, und es hat, muss ich sagen, den Ausschlag für meine Veränderung zum Thelemiten gegeben. Ich finde, das Liber Al vel Legis ist eines der komprimiertesten okkulten Werke [genau das haben auch schon andere gesagt], und es ist, unabhängig davon, wie man es selbst halt so findet, zweifellos ein wertvolles Werk, in dem alles genau aufeinander abgestimmt ist. Das heisst also, ich finde es nicht unbedingt "grossartig", aber es ist - beachtenswert, wie auch Aleister Crowley selbst. [Mal davon unabhängig, dass er behauptet, der Schutzgeist Aiwass hätte ihm das Werk diktiert.] Ich bleibe skeptisch, liess mich von dem Buch des Gesetzes aber faszinieren. (Dies ist eine Amazon.de an der Uni-Studentenrezension.)

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is a book for people who love god, not hate him! 27. November 1999
Von MWebb
In Crowley's AHA he states that it was essential for him to surrender to god at one point in his initiatory progress. It is sad to see that some who follow Crowley today (one reviewer below, for example) think he is a devil worshipper and only idolizes himself! He is nothing of the kind! He is no more of a devil worshipper than those who worship Lord Shiva! Unfortunately, too many of us in the West condemn that which varies from safe and sane fundamentalist dogma. Admittedly Crowley seemed to have an axe to grind with hypocritical Christians, and probably didn't like the tyranny of "one God" either, but to see a reviewer applaud Liber Al vel Legis "if you hate God" appalls me.
That having been said, when one reads this revalatory, short, poetic text, one realizes he or she is not in Kansas anymore. Three gods are presented in Liber Al: Nuit, a sky (as opposed to earth!) mother, Had or Hadit, the stern male, and Ra-Hoor-Khuit, an exceedingly wrathful male. The text of Ra-Hoor-Khuit is particulary disturbing, so much so that Crowley tried to forget and lose the book for years, before coming to accept it. The story of Crowley's initial rejection and ultimate acceptance is fascinating. This story can be found in Book Four (ed. Hymanaeus Beta)together with a reproduction of the original soiled manuscript of the text.
This book is a koan wrapped inside a riddle wrapped in side a puzzle. Have fun with it!
