Scented Gardens

I don’t have to tell Crowleyphiles that Aleister loved Islamic/Arabic culture. He honeymooned in Cairo (where he received Liber XXXI). He extolled its “masculine” values, adopted Arabic dress on occasion, had a number of intimacies with Arabic men and adopted the pseudonym Abdullah The Satirist Of Shiraz for The Scented Garden.  

So, in case you’d like to get in the mood for meditating on Crowley’s Islamic modalities… here’re some resources for taking virtual tours of Islamic architectural sites:

Dome of the Rock and Al Aqsa Mosque

The Alhambra

Suleymaniye Mosque

Frater Lux Ad Mundi
