Synopsis of the Book
As its title indicates, The Greater Mysteries is a purely initiatory book written by Samael Aun Weor in 1956.
On that year, and being thirty-nine years old, Samael Aun Weor successfully completes the first stage of the Esoteric Path of Initiation (known as the ‘Mountain of Initiation’), a stage which covers the Five Great Initiations of Fire and the Eight Initiations of Light. As a result, he becomes an Adept or Master of the White Brotherhood.
Following this extraordinary achievement, Samael Aun Weor becomes a qualified Master to guide the Gnostic students, not only in regard to the Lesser Mysteries, but also in regard to the Greater Mysteries.
This book is part of an important ‘trilogy’ on the subject, comprising: The first book he wrote The Doorway to Initiation (and its definite sequel The Perfect Marriage), The Greater Mysteries and The Three Mountains, which he wrote in a period of twenty-two years as he gradually completed the Esoteric Path of Initiation.
The Greater Mysteries focuses on the subject of initiatory preparation, and comprises three parts:
The first part expands on the first book he wrote and deals with Esoteric Initiation and initiatory preparation. The second part thoroughly covers the personal initiatory process of Master Jesus the Christ in relation to the Greater Mysteries, and the third part covers various complementary subjects in relation to the Gnostic Movement and the Gnostic Teaching.
Much of the material in this book is found nowhere in the extensive Corpus of Samael Aun Weor, making this book a unique book in its own right.
Moreover, this book is a complete version of the book written by Samael Aun Weor in 1956 (not one paragraph has been left out).
The Greater Mysteries is a must for anyone wishing to have a practical, ‘hands on’ information on the subject of Initiation and a clear idea of what this Path is all about.
