This is a simple breakdown of our interpretation of verse 40, chapter 1 of Liber AL vel Legis and it’s relationship to the grades which are found in other A.’.A.’. schools. Our branch adheres to the ‘Three Grades’ and uses The Tree of Life simply as a convenient over-all filing system of Self.
“Who call us Thelemites will do no wrong, if he
look but close into the word. For there are therein
Three Grades, the Hermit, and the Lover,
and the man of Earth.” –Liber AL I:40
