About Supra Aurum
Greetings and Health.
*Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.*
The story of the O.T.O. in South Africa started more than 50 years ago, when the O.T.O. was well established here. The O.T.O. in South Africa had, in the intervening years, dwindled to nothingness. A few years ago, a delegation of Australian members, lead by Frater Numa (now Shiva X°), conducted a series of initiations here, under the auspices of Oceania Lodge, giving rise to Supra Aurum, the phoenix of O.T.O. in South Africa. We have subsequently undergone many trials and a change of hands. In the early part of 2010 e.v., Supra Aurum has once again achieved Oasis status.
The Supra Aurum Oasis is situated in the valley of Johannesburg. The first two letters of the words, translated into Hebrew would be Samek (prop, support, lean; Sagittarius) and Aleph (ox, clan, learn, teach, Air), together having the meaning of “support of learning / teaching.” Further, the word Supra in Latin translates as, “Above,” and Aurum as “Gold.”
Supra Aurum is dedicated to solidifying the foundations of Universal Brotherhood with the ideals of Peace, Tolerance and Truth, ever seeking to penetrate the Mysteries of the Unknown armed with Courage, Wit and Beauty. We provide a social and cultural crucible for self-discipline, self-knowledge and personal freedom, so that each Star may accomplish the Great Work. To this end, we are dedicated to establishing and expanding a community of like minded individuals, each exploring and living their True Will.
*Love is the law, love under will.*
