    The Spider and the Green Butterfly

    Vodoun Crossroads of Power

    E.A. Koetting
    Baron DePrince



    "This text is perhaps the most dangerous to ever be put in print. Its rituals unlock doors that cannot be shut, its symbols and incantations conjure spirits that can never be exorcised, and the whole of your life and being will become a gateway between the worlds. Study this text, take notes, discuss it and dissect it, but unless you wish to be swept into the blackest ocean by the uncasing current of Vodoun, do not practice from this book, not once, not to see if it works or to use even a minor ritual for your benefit. The moment you do, this world will no longer be yours." - The Spider & the Green Butterfly

    A very dark modern-day grimoire of black magick, evocation and sorcery, which teaches the dark magick practices of the Vodoun (or Voudon) current, as practiced in Haiti by the Cult of the Spider, and the Cult of the Green Butterfly. If you dare to tread along this path, then through this book, Koetting & DePrince will teach you, the art of Vodoun: of crossing over, and working with powerful spirits and Loa; of consecration & preparation; of drawing veves; of the different strands and rites; of protecting yourself from enemies, and baneful influences; and of casting spells and curses, and making powerful concoctions. This book resulted from a manuscript, which was delivered by the Vodoun Priest Baron DePrince to Koetting, who was then given the task of working & deciphering it, and translating it, into a form that could be published, and used by others. Every chapter was sent to Haiti, to be reviewed by a counsel of Master Houngans, who preside over the network of clandestine Vodoun Societies. This book contains rites & practices, which could be dangerous, & is not for novices, so beware!

    For decades, schoolbooks have taught that Sumer was the cradle of civilization. Conventional scholarship has also held that Aryan civilization came to India by way of invasions from the north. But in this ground-breaking book, three renowned scholars show that there was no "Aryan invasion," and that India, not Sumer, was the cradle of civilized humanity. Through exploring the rich symbols, metaphors, and myths of the Vedas, this book also examines the wealth of India's spirituality and its relevance for today's world. MsSVig

    Order of Saturn & House Ruin - Tower (Collection of Manuscripts)




    :!:NOTE: The manuscripts from Order of Saturn and House Ruin were originally collected and put together by The Temple of THEM.


    "In 2006 the Temple of THEM began to attract individuals to it whom expressed divergent strains of Satanic Practice whose nature could not be easily defined by the prevailing trends or traditions. Many individuals and clandestine groups began to reveal themselves to us, swearing allegiance to the Temple of THEM and unveiling their dark paths to us.


    The Order of Saturn and House Ruin currents represent a powerful system of Overcoming that was never meant to engender reliance on an external authority but to act as a leaderless guide to a few who had the innate properties to achieve autonomy purely by their own effort."

    In traditional Hinduism, each caste has its own laws, its own morality, its own place in the society, and the individual is given so many laws to attend to that his whole life is spent doing what he aught do and he never has a moment to think, What would I like to do? The function of these laws is to bind the individual to the group absolutely so that he is not what we would call an individual.— Joseph Campbell

    Joseph Campbell explores the rich cultural tradition of Hinduism, its basis as a tribal religion, and way in which its myths, laws and rituals shape the lives of its adherents. He speaks at length about the caste system and the structure that it gave traditional Indian life, as well as the idea of dharma (duty or virtue) as the driving ideal. He speaks too of the traditional āśramas or stages of a pious Hindu life, as one seeks to become the perfect manifestation of one’s dharma, first within the society and then outside of the culture’s boundaries in the forest.

    Book Description

    Since its first publication in 1941, A Testament of Devotion, by the renowned Quaker teacher Thomas Kelly, has been universally embraced as a truly enduring spiritual classic. Plainspoken and deeply inspirational, it gathers together five compelling essays that urge us to center our lives on God's presence, to find quiet and stillness within modern life, and to discover the deeply satisfying and lasting peace of the inner spiritual journey. As relevant today as it was a half-century ago, A Testament of Devotion is the ideal companion to that highest of all human arts-the lifelong conversation between God and his creatures.

    I have in mind something deeper than the simplification of our external programs, our absurdly crowded calendars of appointments through which so many pantingly and frantically gasp. These do become simplified in holy obedience, and the poise and peace we have been missing can really be found. But there is a deeper, an internal simplification of the whole of one's personality, stilled, tranquil, in childlike trust listening ever to Eternity's whisper, walking with a smile into the dark."

    Still Mining the Gold from This Little Book
    I've read a lot of Christian books by such authors as Augustine, Aquinas, Brother Lawrence, Pascal, Caussade, Teresa of Avila, Dostoevsky, Lewis, Tozer, Sproul, Geisler, Willard, Foster, and many more... but I'm drawn back to this little book above them all. I've come to appreciate the paradox of "nothing matters; everything matters." As Kelly said, God "gives us the royal blindness of faith, and the seeing eye of the sensitized soul, and the grace of unflinching obedience. Then we see that nothing matters, and that everything matters, and that this my task matters for me and for my fellow men and for Eternity. And if we be utterly humble we may be given the strength to be obedient even unto death, yea the death of the Cross." My goal is to write a devotional, theological book to compare to it. I am not yet up to the task. I have many notes from my many readings, but first I must make God's presence and will the deepest realities in my life as they obviously were in Kelly's. I have the head knowledge, but lack the deepest heart's passion and abandonment to divine breathings that are required to pen a masterpiece. I've learned from Kelly that it is more important that I live as God's masterpiece than pen one myself. As Kelly said, "practice comes first in religion, not theory or dogma."
    One correction to my earlier review: Kelly discussed the paradox of "nothing matters; everything matters" with a Hindu monk, not a Buddhist one.
    In closing, I'm somewhat surprised to find that Kelly's book is not as popular as it deserves to be. But, then again, I'm not. - Brad Clark

    Lama Choedak has combined his long awaited translation of
    the Sacred Triple Tantra by Panchen Ngawang Choedak with
    three fascinating chapters, adapted from his earlier sub-thesis
    on the topic, which explore the hitherto unknown origin of
    the Lamdre (lam 'bras) tradition in India. The Triple Tantra
    contains the most esoteric oral teachings of Mahasiddha Virupa
    according to the Hevajra Tantra.

    For sincere students with a firm faith in Vajrayana teachings
    and practices, who have received the full Lamdre teachings, this
    is an indispensable book. As one of the first translations to
    become available from the Sakyapa tradition, it will be greatly
    appreciated by the ever expanding Tibetan Buddhist world.

    Lama Choedak was born in Tibet and escaped to Nepal in
    1959. In 1980 he completed twelve years of rigorous monastic
    training including a three and a half year Lamdre retreat under
    the tutorship of His Eminence Chogye Trichen Rinpoche.

    Lama Choedak has been teaching in the West for fifteen years
    and is the author of the ground breaking book Lamdre: Dawn
    of Enlightment. In 1987 he founded Sakya Losal Choe Dzong
    in Canberra, Australia, and more recently established the
    Rongton Buddhist Training College also in Canberra. MsSVig

    Tarot cards have been used for centuries to predict the future, shed light on the past and reveal the mysterious patterns of character and destiny. With language simple enough even for beginners, this book is the quintessential work on one of the most mysterious arts of the New Age. Reissue.

    From Amazon
    This book has a very short description of each card's divinitory meaning and an even shorter description of the card reversed. This brevity is appealing to a person who wants to begin reading cards immediately, however it has the drawback of giving limited interpretations which can lead to inaccuracy in some circumstances. It also makes memorizing the meanings very difficult, since it does not tie the meaning in with the pictorial representation of the card. In its favor, at least it does mention the reversed cards, which not all references do. It also has a short glossary of the symbolism used in cards. All in all, though, for any beginner who really wants to learn the tarot, I'd say Joan Bunning's book is 10 times better than this.

    The Druid Animal Oracle




    by Philip and Stephanie Carr-Gomm












    The Druid Animal Oracle by Philip & Stephanie Carr-Gomm, illustrated by Bill Worthington, is an oracular system based on the totem animals of Druidry. The book gives a wealth of folklore, myth and interpretations for each animal and gives both oracular spreads and ways of working with power animals that can act as guides, allies and healers.

    "Rich with vivid symbolic references, the cards have a depth and elegance that subtly draws the eye in to reveal detail. More than a reference, this work embodies reverence. It establishes a foundation and framework of understanding. A doorway to other dimensions. " The Druid’s Progress Magazine.

    A Brief History of Nakedness





    by Philip Carr-Gomm












    In A Brief History of Nakedness Philip Carr-Gomm traces our preoccupation with nudity in three distinct areas of human endeavour: religion, politics and popular culture. Rather than study the history of the fine-art nude, or detail the ways in which the naked body has been denigrated or imprisoned, this book explores new territory - revealing the ways in which religious teachers, politicians, protestors and cultural icons have used nudity to enlighten or empower themselves, or simply entertain us.

    "I absolutely loved A Brief History of Nakedness. Besides being a fascinating read, it contains the most fun, intriguing, and diverse collection of nude photographs anywhere. A must for anyone interested in art, political activism, and cultural studies. This ''brief'' history must have taken forever to research. It makes me want to rip off my clothes for a good cause immediately." --Annie Sprinkle PhD, artist / sexologist
    (Annie Sprinkle )

    "In this lucid and wide-ranging book Philip Carr-Gomm . . . strips bare the paradoxes of humanity''s attitude toward its own naked figures. Using a snappy blend of history and imagery, he invites readers to join him in making thrilling, confusing, funny, and beautiful realizations about that simultaneously mysterious and obvious state of unclothedness. From the rituals of witchcraft to the human art installations of Spencer Tunick to the non-nakedness of the Naked Chef, Carr-Gomm offers the revelation that far from being merely a basic physical state, human nakedness - sacred, obscene - holds the key to understanding politics, culture, and our very nature as human beings."--Kathleen Rooney, author of Live Nude Girl: My Life as an object
    (Kathleen Rooney )

    "A Brief History of Nakedness admirably uncovers religious, political and popular performances of and reactions to nudity in a remarkable array of cultures. Everything from ancient religious devotional practices to recent streaking controversies is discussed in an expert and delightful manner."--Graham Harvey, Open University
    (Graham Harvey )

    "Not only the best book on its subject, but a marvellous read: racy, compassionate, candid and perceptive."--Ronald Hutton, Professor of History, University of Bristol

    Robert Anton Wilson (born Robert Edward Wilson, January 18, 1932 – January 11, 2007), known to friends as "Bob", was an American author and polymath who became at various times a novelist, philosopher, psychologist, essayist, editor, playwright, poet, futurist, civil libertarian and self-described agnostic mystic. Recognized as an episkopos, pope, and saint of Discordianism, Wilson helped publicize the group through his writings and interviews.

    Wilson described his work as an "attempt to break down conditioned associations, to look at the world in a new way, with many models recognized as models or maps, and no one model elevated to the truth". His goal being "to try to get people into a state of generalized agnosticism, not agnosticism about God alone but agnosticism about everything."

    In this interview he is talking about conspirancy, number 23 and many other things...
