Non-Indian occult

Non-Indian occult arts and religions refer to a wide range of spiritual practices, belief systems and magical traditions that exist outside the cultural and religious context of India. These may include ritual witchcraft, Hermeticism, Western occultism such as Wicca and Thelema, and African diasporic religions such as Voodoo and Santeria. Non-Indian occult arts and religions often involve rituals, magical spells, divination, and worship of deities and spiritual forces. They emphasize personal transformation, connection with higher powers, and the quest for hidden and mystical knowledge. These customs and religions vary greatly in their particular beliefs, practices, and cultural backgrounds, but all are interested in the esoteric, the supernatural, and the pursuit of spiritual enlightenment and power.
