The Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram

The Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram (LBRP) is a ceremonial magick ritual that was devised and used by the original Order of the Golden Dawn and has become a mainstay in modern occultism. It is considered a basic preliminary to any other magical work and is often memorized and practiced daily. The LBRP consists of three main parts, including the Qabalistic Cross, which is meant to construct an astral cross in the body of the magician, with points corresponding to sephiroth on the Tree of Life using the doxology of the Lord’s Prayer. The ritual can be performed with little to no special equipment or clothing, and the only magical tool required is a dagger, although the right index finger can be used instead.
