Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn

The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn was a secret society devoted to the study and practice of the occult and paranormal activities during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Known as a magical order, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn was active in Great Britain and focused its practices on theurgy and spiritual development. Many present-day concepts of ritual and magic that are at the centre of contemporary traditions, such as Wicca and Thelema, were inspired by the Golden Dawn, which became one of the largest single influences on 20th-century Western occultism; the three founders, William Robert Woodman, William Wynn Westcott and Samuel Liddell Mathers, were Freemasons. Westcott appears to have been the initial driving force behind the establishment of the Golden Dawn; the Golden Dawn system was based on initiation like the Masonic lodges. The "Golden Dawn" was the first of three Orders, although all three are collectively referred to as the "Golden Dawn"; the First Order taught esoteric philosophy based on the Hermetic Qabalah and personal development through study and awareness of the four classical elements as well as the basics of astrology, tarot divination, geomancy.

The Second or "Inner" Order, the Rosae Rubeae et Aureae Crucis, taught magic, including scrying, astral travel, alchemy. The Third Order was that of the "Secret Chiefs", who were said to be skilled; the foundational documents of the original Order of the Golden Dawn, known as the Cipher Manuscripts, are written in English using the Trithemius cipher. The manuscripts give the specific outlines of the Grade Rituals of the Order and prescribe a curriculum of graduated teachings that encompass the Hermetic Qabalah, occult tarot and alchemy. According to the records of the Order, the manuscripts passed from Kenneth R. H. Mackenzie, a Masonic scholar, to the Rev. A. F. A. Woodford, whom British occult writer Francis King describes as the fourth founder; the documents did not excite Woodford, in February 1886 he passed them on to Freemason William Wynn Westcott, who managed to decode them in 1887. Westcott, pleased with his discovery, called on fellow Freemason Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers for a second opinion.

Westcott asked for Mathers' help to turn the manuscripts into a coherent system for lodge work. Mathers in turn asked fellow Freemason William Robert Woodman to assist the two, he accepted. Mathers and Westcott have been credited with developing the ritual outlines in the Cipher Manuscripts into a workable format. Mathers, however, is credited with the design of the curriculum and rituals of the Second Order, which he called the Rosae Rubae et Aureae Crucis. In October 1887, Westcott claimed to have written to a German countess and prominent Rosicrucian named Anna Sprengel, whose address was said to have been found in the decoded Cipher Manuscripts. According to Westcott, Sprengel claimed the ability to contact certain supernatural entities, known as the Secret Chiefs, that were considered the authorities over any magical order or esoteric organization. Westcott purportedly received a reply from Sprengel granting permission to establish a Golden Dawn temple and conferring honorary grades of Adeptus Exemptus on Westcott and Woodman.

The temple was to consist of the five grades outlined in the manuscripts. In 1888, the Isis-Urania Temple was founded in London. In contrast to the S. R. I. A. and Masonry, women were allowed and welcome to participate in the Order in "perfect equality" with men. The Order was more of a metaphysical teaching order in its early years. Other than certain rituals and meditations found in the Cipher manuscripts and developed further, "magical practices" were not taught at the first temple. For the first four years, the Golden Dawn was one cohesive group known as "the Outer Order" or "First Order." An "Inner Order" was established and became active in 1892. The Inner Order consisted of members known as "adepts," who had completed the entire course of study for the Outer Order; this group of adepts became known as the Second Order. The Osiris temple in Weston-super-Mare, the Horus temple in Bradford, the Amen-Ra temple in Edinburgh were founded. In 1893 Mathers founded the Ahathoor temple in Paris. In 1891, Westcott's alleged correspondence with Anna Sprengel ceased.

He claimed to have received word from Germany that she was either dead or that her companions did not approve of the founding of the Order and no further contact was to be made. If the founders were to contact the Secret Chiefs it had to be done on their own. In 1892, Mathers professed. Subsequently, he supplied rituals for the Second Order, calling them the Red Cross of Gold; the rituals were based on the tradition of the tomb of Christian Rosenkreuz, a Vault of Adepts became the controlling force behind the Outer Order. In 1916, Westcott claimed that Mathers constructed these rituals from materials he received from Frater Lux ex Tenebris, a purported Continental Adept; some followers of the Golden Dawn tradition believe that the Secret Chiefs were not human or supernatural beings, but rather symbolic representations of actual or legendary sources of spiritual esotericism. The term came to stand for a great leader or teacher of a spir

On hearing the news of Guru sahib's arrival, Chaudary Ishar Das, a resident of the village along with the other followers reached to take Guru sahib's blessing. Guru sahib asked if he could do something for the welfare of the area. Chaudary Ishar das with folded hands asked that there was no water in the village and people have to go to the Sukhna river to fetch water for their livelihood.

Pterostoma palpina

Pterostoma palpina, the pale prominent, is a moth from the family Notodontidae. The species was first described by Carl Alexander Clerck in 1759; the moth can be found in Central Asia. Pterostoma palpina has a wingspan of 35 to 52 mm. Beyond the black scaled tooth-like forewing projection the inner margin is notched. Long labial palps and tufts on the tail segment, give an elongated appearance; the antennae of the female are pectinated. Except that some specimens are more marked than others there is little variation; the larva is bluish green, with white dorsal and lateral lines, a black edged yellow stripe along the spiracles. The moth survives winter as a pupa; the imago looks like a piece of wood and the flying period ranges from the start of April to the start of September. ^ The flight season refers to the British Isles.
