Today, April 9, celebrates the writing of Chapter II of The Book of the Law. This chapter is written in the voice of Hadit, who tells us, “I am the flame that burns in every heart of man, and in the core of every star.” He also instructs, “I am the Snake that giveth Knowledge & Delight and bright glory, and stir the hearts of men with drunkenness. To worship me take wine and strange drugs whereof I will tell my prophet, & be drunk thereof!”
If you haven’t already, now is a great time to consider purchasing The Thelemic Cookbook: Cooking with the Correspondences, by Lita-Luise Chappell. The book includes menus for just about any feast a Thelemite may wish to celebrate. We think you’ll want to read the whole book!
Meanwhile, here are recipes corresponding to the energy of this feast day, from other sources.
