5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting curiosity, 13 Aug. 2008
Alex Sumner "AS" (London, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Theurgy: The Art of Effective Worship (Paperback)
"Theurgy" is literally a mediaeval term for magic which involves the invocation of divine and angelic forces. In the 18th and 19th century, practitioners of disciplines such as Martinism used it to signify ritual as a means to attain spiritual illumination. It is in this sense that Mouni Sadhu uses it in this book.

Sadhu's argument is that what makes a Theurgic Ritual (which in its most simplest form, is Prayer) effective is not merely the words themselves, but the psychic mental and spiritual effort that the practitioner puts into performing it. Sadhu outlines how this can be achieved, although he continually refers to his other publications, expecting the reader to cross-reference them (hint: "Concentration" is recommended, "Samadhi" is not).

If you are looking for a book of magical spells to achieve your various wants, this is not for you. If however you want practical guidance on how to -know- God, instead of just taking Him on Faith alone, then you may find this useful.
