Lam was an Entity contacted by Aleister Crowley.
In 1918 Crowley conducted a sex magic ritual called the Almalantrah working with Roddie Minor, known as Soror Ahitha. The working created a portal in the spaces between stars, through which Lam was able to enter the known physical universe. Since then, other entities are believed to enter through this widening portal and to be the basis for numerous contact experiences with UFOs and extraterrestrials.
One of the revelations of the working was the symbolism of the egg. Crowley and Soror Ahitha were told, “It’s all in the egg.”
Crowley believed Lam to be the soul of a dead Tibetan lama from Leng, between China and Tibet. Lam is Tibetan for “Way” or “Path,” which Crowley said had the numerical value of 71, or “No Thing,” a gateway to the Void and a link between the star systems of Sirius and Andromeda. Lam was to fulfill the work initiated by Aiwass.
Crowley drew a portrait of Lam and said that gazing on the portrait enables one to make contact with the entity.
