Abstract:

The League for Spiritual Discovery is a legally incorporated religion dedicated to the ancient sacred sequence of turning-on, tuning-in, and dropping-out. Its aim is to help recreate every man as God and every woman as Goddess. This book is the first of a four-volume biblical account of the birth, structural growth, exile, return, persecution, redemption, and flowering of the LSD religious cult. The seal of the League is a mandala--the end-less circle circumscribing a four-leaf lotus made by the double infinity sign. This interweaving of the infinite universe of mail with the infinite universe of female forms the flower, symbol of seed-life--centered in the void-eye of God.
