The Great Work, for the Dominus Liminis, is defined as, "to obtain control of the aspirations of my own being."
"Dominus Liminis" is Latin for "Master of the Threshold." As comment on the grade name, we find in Liber 185: "Besides all this, he shall abide upon the Threshold. Let him remember that the word Dominus Liminis is no idle term, but that his mastery will often be disputed, when he knoweth it not."
