Paranormal Tactician is an album of three audio tracks of ritualistic, contemplative, rigorous, rhythmic, exploratory and immersive experimental electronic sound mantras enthused with spirit and silent hidden magickal invocations. The third track The Master’s Word Expounds (For Ananda Metteya) is lovingly dedicated to Ananda Metteya “Bliss of loving kindness” (aka Charles Henry Allan Bennett 8th December 1872 – 9th March 1923) a member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.
He was a close associate of author and occultist Aleister Crowley. Bennett trained Crowley in the basics of magic and tried to instill a devotion to white magic. He was an enthusiastic user of mind changing drugs (with which he treated recurrent asthma) and introduced Crowley to this aspect of his occult researches. Bennett received the name Bhikkhu Ananda Metteyya at his ordination as a Buddhist monk and spent years studying and practicing Buddhism in the East.
Ananda Metteya was the second Englishman to be ordained as a Buddhist monk (Bhikkhu) of the Theravada tradition and was instrumental in introducing Buddhism in England. He established the first Buddhist Mission in the United Kingdom and was a pioneer introducing Buddhism into the West. 13 articles by Ananda Metteya can be read here. The second track The Dimension Of Self – Cultivation Through Contemplative Practice from this album is available to stream on SoundCloud.
