“Filled with provocative stories and extensive quotes from Crowley’s unpublished diaries, Aleister Crowley in India is a meticulously researched exploration into a little known but vital period in Crowley’s life and legacy. As always, Tobias Churton writes with a superb and profound understanding of the time, the events, the motivations and the various magickal and mystical philosophies involved. Utterly brilliant—Churton has done it again!”

JOHN ZORN, COMPOSER



“Relying to a large degree on unpublished documents, Churton’s narrative account demonstrates the extent of Crowley’s engagement with both the theoretical and practical dimensions of Hindu and Buddhist teachings and their enduring influence on his magical philosophy. Crowley’s efforts in conjoining the spiritual systems of the East and West have important implications for the study of comparative esotericism, and Churton deserves praise for his eloquent treatment of this fascinating subject.”
