**Minerval Study Program**

These are the practices and studies that the Order requires for the Minerval year. A formal examination is required in these matters (a perfect score is not necessary) before advancement to the First Degree.

  1. Study THE BOOK OF THE LAW. Memorization of the first Chapter is suggested. This may be done a verse a day, with review at intervals–that's often the easy way.
  2. Keep a daily Journal or Magical Diary.
  3. Practice LIBER RESH daily.
  4. Become proficient in the Lesser Pentagram Banishing Ritual–twice daily use is wise.
  5. Do “Will” at the beginning of the main meal of the day
  6. Study MAGICK IN THEORY AND PRACTICE. See the study guide in the 2nd issue of the O.T.O. NEWSLETTER.
  7. Keep in touch! P.O. Box 2303, Berkeley, CA 94702 U.S.A. (415) 454-5176 and 841-4833.

WILL:

<blockquote>
> Knock: 333 - 55555 - 333 (total 11 knocks)
> 
> "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law."
> 
> %%**%% What is thy will?
> 
> It is my will to eat and drink.
> 
> %%**%% To what end?
> 
> That my body may be fortified thereby.
> 
> %%**%% To what end?
> 
> That I may accomplish the Great Work.
> 
> "Love is the law, love under will."
> 
> Knock: 1 "Fall to."
</blockquote>

May be done at all meals. Should be done at the principal meal.

**First Degree Study Program**

These are the practices that the Order requires for the First Degree. An examination is required in these practices ( a perfect score is not necessary) before advancement to the Second Degree.

  1. Continue and elaborate the practices and studies of the Minerval Program. All are important.
  2. Select and become proficient in at least one of the following: LIBER XXV, LIBER XLVI, LIBER V, or LIBER DCCC ( Liber Samekh ).
  3. Begin or continue a particular study in one of the following: Qabalah, Divination, Yoga, Astral Workings or a like discipline.
  4. Perform some work that will endure beyond your own physical lifetime: write and be published, speak in public, produce a work of art, have and nurture a child or perform some similar work that will pass beyond your own mind, and beyond the minds of your immediate associates.
  5. Perform some work for the benefit of your Brothers and Sisters in the Order: Provide time and work in organization, correspond with isolated initiates, share your insights, volunteer for specific needed tasks within your abilities or perform some other service needed by the Order.
  6. Join with fellow initiates in a Chapter, Lodge, or other group of the Order.
  7. Analyze your magickal diary from some definite point of view; e.g. endeavor to determine the point at which virtue becomes vice, as: sympathy degenerating into pity, advice into meddling, temperance into apathy, excellence into illusion, gentleness into shallowness and like matters. Record your findings in your diary with both theoretical views and actual examples from your daily life.

**Second Degree Study Program**

These are the practices that the Order requires for the Second Degree. An examination is required in these practices ( a perfect score is not necessary ) before advancement to the Third Degree.
