Description

Available for the first time in English, The Sacred Rite of Magical Love is a mystical, sexually magical novella written by Maria de Naglowska -- the Russian mystic and esoteric high priestess of 1930s Paris. Her religious system, called the Third Term of the Trinity, taught the importance of sex for the upliftment of humanity.

This volume is a natural continuation of Naglowska's The Light of Sex and Advanced Sex Magic, and it also contains autobiographical material from Maria de Naglowska's life. Full of symbolic language and hidden meanings, the story follows a young woman named Xenophonta as she experiences the apparition of a dark force, whom she calls the Master of the Past and to whom she dedicates her heart and her service. Prior to a midnight rendezvous with him, Xenophonta encounters a young Cossack, Misha, who sexually accosts her. Telling Misha that she already belongs to another, she spurns his advances. Misha, now jealous, follows her and ends up taking part in a strange, mystical ceremony that transforms him, through the magic of word and flesh. With a preface discussing the Sacred Triangle and the magical symbol of the AUM Clock, both central symbols in Naglowska's religious system as well as in the story, the book also includes a summary of the doctrine of the Third Term of the Trinity in Naglowska's own words -- important to any student of the Western Mystery tradition.

MARIA DE NAGLOWSKA (1883-1936) was a Russian occultist, mystic, and founder of the Brotherhood of the Golden Arrow. Her conferences in Paris in the 1930s were attended by many now famous avant-garde and notorious writers and artists, such as Julius Evola, Man Ray, and Andre Breton. She is also known for her translation of P. B. Randolph's Magia Sexualis, the classic occult text that has survived only through her translation.

DONALD TRAXLER is both a translator and student of the occult. He lives in Martinez, California.
