Ordi Templi Orientis (O.T.O.)


The Order of the Temple of the Orient, or, as it is sometimes rendered, the Order of the Oriental Templars, is an outer Thelemic order dedicated to the purpose of securing the liberty of the individual.

The O.T.O. is dedicated to advancement of the individual in light, wisdom, understanding, knowledge and power. This is accomplished through beauty, courage and wit, on the foundation of universal brotherhood.

The law of Thelema can ultimately be fulfilled only through the efforts of each individual. Nevertheless, many worthy aspirants to the Great Work have a genuine need for information, guidance, fellowship or the opportunity to assist their fellow aspirants and serve humanity. Such aspirants will find welcome in O.T.O.
