The Book of the Law is a sacred text that served as the basis for Thelema. This book was dictated to Crowley in Cairo between noon and 1 p.m. on three successive days, April 8th, 9th and 10th in the year 1904. The Author called himself Aiwass, and claimed to be “the minister of Hoor-Paar-Kraat”.
The Book lays down a simple Code of Conduct:
- “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.”
- “Love is the law, love under will.”
- “There is no law beyond Do what thou wilt.”
