Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
The letters O.T.O. stand for Ordo Templi Orientis, the Order of Oriental Templars, or Order of the Temple of the East. O.T.O. is dedicated to the high purpose of securing the Liberty of the Individual and his or her advancement in Light, Wisdom, Understanding, Knowledge, and Power through Beauty, Courage, and Wit, on the Foundation of Universal Brotherhood.
Ordo Templi Orientis is the first of the great Old Æon orders to accept The Book of the Law, received by Aleister Crowley in 1904 EV. This book proclaims a New Æon in human thought, culture and religion. The Æon arises from a single supreme injunction: the Law of Thelema, which is Do what thou wilt.
In Kansas City, O.T.O. is represented by Heru Behutet Oasis.
We have operated continuously for over twenty years, offering initiation in the Man of Earth Degrees, the Gnostic Mass – our most central public and private rite – and many of the Sacraments of Ecclesia Gnostica Catholica. Over the years, we’ve staged plays, held classes, sponsored art shows, published a journal, and performed public rituals. We aim to continue growth of Thelemic culture in Kansas City.
