O.T.O. Germany Publishes 1st Issue of Kneph

The German O.T.O. has just p the inaugural issue of their journal, Kneph. It’ll be available at all major online retailers including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc. Here’s their announcement

“This first issue is dedicated to the founder of our Order Theodor Reuss on the 100th anniversary of his Greater Feast and has articles on his work from members within and without Germany, as well as an original article (also in English) on ‘Kneph’ by Hymenaeus Beta.”

Below is the Greeting to the Reader that appears in this publication:

“A feast for fire and a feast for water; a feast for life and a greater feast for death.
A feast every day in your hearts in the joy of my rapture.
A feast every night unto Nu, and the pleasure of uttermost delight.”
Liber AL, II:34-43

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

“It is my honor and great pleasure to welcome you, dear reader, to this inaugural number of Kneph, a new journal of Ordo Templi Orientis Germany. Even moreso as this issue is a tribute to the founder of our
Order on the 100th anniversary of his Death. The decades following his passing were a time of tribulation, of war and rumours of war, which scattered members across the globe. However, the seeds so planted,
nurtured by the light & love or Our Father the Sun have ripened into an Order whose size and breadth would have caused even Merlin Peregrinus to marvel!

“Much has changed since our Sovereign Sanctuary stood at the base of Berlin’s Tempelhofer Berg. The Thelemic Community, once counted in the dozens, has grown exponentially as To Mega Therion’s Message of Will and Love gains an ever greater public. The Ordo Templi Orientis, in service to this community, reflects this growth and diversity. At the threshold of the second century following Reuss’s passing, it is important that we look to the past to examine how far we have come. It is equally important, however, to look toward the future, as everywhere we observe Freedom under threat from Tyrants, whether they attack from the Right or Left. History has shown that liberty undefended is, before long, liberty denied.

“Our title, ‘A Journal of Thelemic Culture’ acknowledges that this Thelemic Current radiates far beyond the narrow confines of occult lore and masonic minutiae. As Theodor Reuss was not only a magician but activively involved in the arts and social questions of his day, let each of us, Children of the Sun, explore the unfolding of this New Aeon and its Law of Freedom in our own lives and communities. May Kneph
contribute to the blossoming of this freedom and ‘that fulfilment of will and of love under will that is perpetual happiness.’ (Liber XV)”

Love is the law, love under will.
