Spirituality Today reviews the Magickal Union

See you around, Don

This morning I learned that Donald Michael Kraig had passed away last night, after his heroic battle with pancreatic cancer.

Don was an inspiration to countless numbers of students in the esoteric communities. His books are probably the best selling titles around on magick. His Modern Magick alone has gotten numerous people started on the path.

He was my initiator into the Adinatha/AMOOKOS line of tantra, and a mentor in the publishing world. Don was the lead inspiration and energy in getting my book published, and taught me the entire time. Every single email from him was practically a novel, written just for me, with thoughtful and detailed information on publishing, how to make my manuscript more readable, how to convey ideas clearly.

Up until the end, he lived what he believed in. May that be an inspiration to all of us.

Don, I know I will see you again, so I will not say goodbye. Just see you around. Enjoy your journey Home.

Jai Maa

 

Durga puja in Mumbai

My trip to Mumbai last October coincided (intentionally) with the cities celebrations of Navratri, the nine nights of festivals dedicated to the Great Goddess Durga. The always dynamic and colorful city turns things up several notches, with the streets filled with celebrations day and night. You can not walk a block without encountering the many puja pandals, ranging from small niches in a corner to full blown temporary  installations with room for dancing and singing. Many of the pandals are also mobile, carried by singing, dancing and drumming worshippers throughout the town. All the senses are engaged to the extreme during this time, and the revelry goes on nonstop throughout the night. During this time it is thought that Durga has returned home and is welcomed as both a triumphant Goddess conquering all that is evil, and a beloved daughter come back to her parents home. It is a time of great joy as well as sweet sorrow, for after the Nine Nights her image is taken the ocean and submerged, returning her to the celestial abodes until next year. I look forward to visiting again and experiencing Devi in Maharashta in Her many guises and playful modes.ImageImage

Call for Healing!

A call for healing assistance! Donald Michael Kraig is a colleague in the esoteric and publishing communities. He has been instrumental in my own work with both Adinatha/AMOOKOS, as well as being my mentor and guide in the publishing world. His book Modern Magick was one of the first I came across when starting out, and has gotten many people onto the path of the Great Work. Please help out if you can.

I ould like to take this time to welcome Mr. Peters to the Papers in the Attic family. How are you?

Gregory Peters: Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. Thank you for asking to discuss the Work.
