418 Lodge:  ordo templi orientis


Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

418 Lodge is a chartered body of Ordo Templi Orientis located in the valley of Sacramento, California.  We are a community of men and women united in our pursuit of the knowledge and accomplishment of our “True Will”, defined as the one perfect and unique path for each individual.  To this end, we regularly celebrate the Gnostic Mass, our central public ritual, and conduct initiations into the various degrees of the OTO.  We also sponsor classes and other opportunities for learning and fellowship among the initiates.  Please click on the links above to see our upcoming calendar of events, our contact info, and pages answering commonly asked questions.

Note on the images above:  the larger image on the left shows a portion of the handwritten manuscript of Liber AL, the Book of the Law, Thelema’s central text.  Thelema is an eclectic tradition with roots in the wisdom traditions of many lands.  The other, smaller images display script samples from some of these; in this case Ancient Greek, Chinese, and Arabic.

Love is the law, love under will.

For pure will, unassuaged of purpose, delivered from the lust of result, is in every way perfect.
