by Tobias Churton

We are thrilled to once again welcome Tobias Churton to The Atlantis Bookshop to launch another of his Crowley biographies, this time concerning The Great Beast’s time in India.

Sharing excerpts from Crowley’s unpublished diaries, Tobias Churton tells the true story of Crowley’s mystical adventures in India from 1901 to 1906. He explores Crowley’s encounters with jnana yoga, Vedantist and Advaitist philosophies, Hindu religious practices, and Mahayana and Theravada Buddhism and reveals how he incorporated what he learned into his own magical system, Thelema.
