The Ritual Magic Manual : A Complete Course in Practical Magic By David Griffin

Direct Download

This book is something alot of people have been waiting for. A simple, down to Earth guide on how to utilize the forces of the elements, the planets, the zodical signs, the sephiroth on the tree of life and even the misunderstood "demonic" forces of the qulipoth. 

David Griffin writes in a clear, easy-to-understand manner, that makes this book much better for practical use than most books on the subject. The author starts with basic rituals like the Lesser banishing rituals of the Pentagram and hexagram, the middle pillar exercise and the Rose Cross Ritual, them guides the reader through rituals designed to invoke and banish any force from the elemental level to the sephirotic level. 

One of the most interesting aspects of the book is how Griffin incorporates Enochian into the Planetary and Zodical rites, as well as the new guidelines for Enochian pronounciation. My only gripe with his new tablets is that he only includes versions with English letters, but it should pose no great difficulty for anyone experienced with enochian magick, to reconstruct the tablets using enochian letters. Griffin also touches upon the practical application of the forces summoned, but wisely (IMO) urges the reader to Master the purely theurgical aspects of the rites before putting them to practical use. 

Finally he touches upon the art of Demonic Evocation and shows how this is a valid theurgical practice, as well as a valuable psycotheraputic tool.
