This is the foundational book for the religious organization known as the Occidental Temple of the Wise Lord. It is the mission of this organization to establish and renew the ancient Indo-European principles of religion as first taught and revealed by Zarathustra, the universal prophet of the Aryan faith, almost 4,000 years ago. This is the universally valid and philosophically grounded religion based on the most ancient principles of Indo-European tradition. This book provides the basic history, doctrine and rituals needed to begin practicing this religion at once in order to help transform the whole wide world according to the ancient teachings of Zarathustra. Mankind is the chief comrade of Ahura Mazda in his struggle against the forces of ignorance, violence and poverty which prevent the happiness of both Man and the whole cosmos. Here you learn the philosophy, ethical teachings and rituals necessary to overcome these obstacles: Good Thoughts, Good Words and Good Deeds. This book embodies the much anticipated and long-expected breakthrough of the ancient universal creed in the West.
THE MAZDAN CALENDAR 3754 ZRE
The Mazdan Calendar of the Occidental Temple of the Wise Lord is based on the most ancient authentic Zoroastrian calendar. It is based on the principles and Holy Days as given in THE GOOD RELIGION by Darban-i-Den (Dr. Stephen Flowers) and is indispensable for those who undertake the curriculum given in ORIGINAL MAGIC by the same author. The calendar is structured entirely according to the traditional Zoroastrian concepts of time calculation, but also has the dates of the modern calendar for ease of use by Westerners.
A complete guide to the theory, practice, and history of Mazdan magic, the first organized system of magic
• Provides a complete curriculum of magical study and initiation centered on exercises keyed to the sacred Zoroastrian calendar
• Details advanced magical rituals and practices based on archaic Persian formulas, including fire rituals and divine invocations
• Explores the history and lore of Persian magic, explaining how the author reconstructed the original Mazdan system of magic
Stephen Flowers explores the history, theory, practice, rituals, and initiations of the Mazdan magical system practiced by the Magi of ancient Persia, who were so skilled and famed for their effectiveness that their name came to mean what we today call “magic.” The prestige and reputation of the Magian priests of Mazda is perhaps most iconically recorded in the Christian story of the Three Wise Men who visited newborn Jesus.
The author explains how the religious branch of the Mazdan magical system, founded by the Prophet Zarathustra, is known in the West under the name Zoroastrianism. He reveals how the Zoroastrian religion, which acts as a matrix for the symbols and formulas of the original form of magic, has existed for almost four thousand years with roots going back even deeper into the Indo-European past. The author reveals how all other known systems of magic have borrowed from this tradition, providing the clues that enabled him to reformulate the original Mazdan system. He reviews what the Greeks, Romans, Hebrews, Christians, and Chinese said about the Iranian-Persian tradition of the Mazdans and their invention of a magical technology. He explains how the ultimate aim of the original form of magic was not only individual wisdom, self-development, and empowerment, but also the overall betterment of the world.
Outlining the theoretical principles of this method, which can be applied in practical ways to deepen the effectiveness of these magical operations, the author details a complete curriculum of magical study and initiation based on a series of graded exercises keyed to the sacred Zoroastrian calendar. He then offers a series of more advanced magical rituals and practices based on archaic Persian formulas, including fire rituals and divine invocations. Providing a manual for the original magical system used by the members of the Great Fellowship, this book guides you toward the comprehensive practice of the Mazdan philosophy, the ultimate outcome of which is ushta: Happiness.
