Esoteric Encyclopedia Entry of the Week: Argentium Astrum (aka: A.:.A.:.)

The Argentium Astrum (nee: The A∴A∴) is a spiritual organization, with members that are dedicated to the advancement of humanity by perfection of the individual on every plane of consciousness through a graded series of “universal initiations”.

The A.:.A.:. was reconstituted in 1907 by Aleister Crowley and George Cecil Jones after claiming authority from Aiwass (the author of The Book of the Law) and other Secret Chiefs of the planetary spiritual order after the schism and subsequent collapse of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn at the turn of the 20th century.

According to Wikipedia: 

“The A∴A∴ claims to have been present in all societies and epochs, although not necessarily under that name. Its initiations aresyncretic, unifying the essence of Theravada Buddhism with Vedantic yoga and ceremonial magic. The A∴A∴ applies what it describes as mystical and magical methods of spiritual attainment under the structure of the Qabalistic Tree of Life, and aims to research, practice, and teach “scientific illuminism”.

The organisation’s motto is “The method of science, the aim ofreligion.”
