(Liber LII "Manifesto of the O.T.O.")
O.T.O. does not include the A∴A∴, with which august body it is, however, in close alliance.
The A∴A∴, or Great White Brotherhood, through whom this Law was obtained, is a Body of the highest Initiates, pledged to aid mankind. It offers instruction in the Way of Spiritual Progress and Illumination to individual seekers. The work of the A∴A∴ is called Scientific Illuminism. This may be briefly expressed by quoting Its motto: The method of Science; the aim of Religion.
The first condition of membership of the A∴A∴ is that one is sworn to identify one's own Great Work with that of rising mankind to higher levels, spiritually, and in every other way. They have founded a system by which every one can equally attain, and that with an ease and speed which was previously impossible. The first grade in their system is that of student. All persons whose will is to communicate with the A∴A∴ should apply by letter to the Cancellarius of the A∴A∴.
