SAMAEL AUN WEOR – A MASTER OF WISDOM FOR OUR TIME.
The impressive opus of Samael Aun Weor, (Victor Manuel Gomez Rodriguez; 1917 – 1977) – more than seventy books – is written in a clear and direct language with one single objective: to benefit humanity.
Its foundation: the four classical pillars of wisdom – Science, Art, Philosophy and Mysticism.
The works of the author synthesise the teachings of the ancient Initiatic Mystery Schools, whose highly symbolic and Hermetic content is often−erroneously−interpreted in a literal way. In the tradition of the great Educators or Avatars of humanity, the author unveils aspects of the Mysteries of the most ancient Initiatic Teachings. Since time immemorial, instruction in the Mysteries has been given “from mouth to ear”, imparting knowledge, Gnana, or Gnosis, thus revealing the most profound processes of the awakening of consciousness. It is the cultivation of this perceptive and intuitive comprehension that has always been the domain of the Mystery Schools.
The author’s clear purpose is to re-establish the practical principles of Inner Hermetic Education, so as to enable the student to enter the profound and very intimate world of Initiation into the Mysteries. This pertains to the student’s own inner self-realisation, a teaching – in practice – of realising these Mysteries at a personal level. “Initiation is life itself…”
Thus, the books make accessible the true path of Inner Self-Realisation, which is the causa causorum of all spiritual traditions.
Fundamental to approaching these works is an understanding that the ideas expressed, pertain to a superior logic – the “Transcendental Logic of Objective Consciousness”. Samael Aun Weor is the “Master of Synthesis and of Emphasis,” because of his capacity to expound the essence of the Great Mysteries and also to imbue them with a force that impacts upon the consciousness of the reader.
Samael Aun Weor concedes nothing to the scintillating human intellect. This, not only because of the sometimes hard, cutting style of his writing, which is not aimed at winning over or convincing the reader, but also because it is without the allure common to “New Age” esoteric literature in general. He does not write to an audience−his purpose is another.
His work is one of exploration and discovery; seeking the universal thread that links all of the world’s great spiritual traditions. The author’s enduring impulse – to communicate that there exists another, totally different, higher potential in the human being.
However, as the esoteric postulate asserts, “Non omnibus datum” – “This is not for everyone.”
