In year 2000 BBC Scotland made a short documentaroy about Boleskine, Crowley’s house on the banks on Loch Ness. The show was called The Other Loch Ness Monster, but the BBC have so far refused to show it outside of Scotland. Channel Four have filmed a more throughgoing documentary although broadcast has again been delayed due to editorial difficulties. Now you can watch the entire Aleister Crowley “mystical” thelemic documentary video entitled “The Other Loch Ness Monster” with appearance by Kenneth Anger.
Aleister Crowley was perhaps the most controversial and misunderstood personality to figure in the new era of modern day witchcraft. Known by the popular press of his time as â€œThe Great Beastâ€ and â€œThe Wickedest Man in the Worldâ€, Crowley was a powerful magician, poet, prophet and famed occultist. He was also a one-time witch, though most of the elders of the craft would discredit him the title.
Crowley began to travel, mostly in the East studying Eastern Occult systems and ‘Tantric Yoga’; he also studied ‘Buddhism’ and the ‘I Ching’. Then for a time he lived in an isolated setting near to Loch Ness in Scotland. In 1903 he met and then married Rose Edith Kelly, sister of the well-known artist Sir Gerald Kelly. She bore him one child. While they where on holiday in Egypt the following year, April 1904, he and Rose took part in a magical ritual during which he alleges to have received a message from the God’s. As a result of this communication he wrote down the first three chapters of his most famous book â€œLiber Legis, the Book of Lawâ€. This book contains his oft-quoted dictum: â€œDo what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. Love is the Law, Love under Willâ€, upon which Crowley based the rest of his life and teachings. – controverscial.com
