1. Greek version of the Egyptian “Sopdet,” the goddess of the star Sirius. This star was important because its first appearance indicated that the annual flooding of the Nile would soon begin. She was an agricultural goddess and later was believed to be a mother goddess and was connected with Isis. She was the “Bringer of the New Year.”
2. Important biannual journal from Britain first published in 1973. At first it had a strong focus on Kenneth Grant’s version of Aleister Crowley’s Thelemic occultism. Later it introduced and focused on Tantra as presented by H.H. Shri Gurudev Mahendranath. This tradition is still an important focus of Tantric occultists and mystics. A ritual by Mahendranath appears in Ecstasy Through Tantra.
