Abstract:

'The Sacred traditions of the world define the aims and values of a good life, inspire moral sentiments and the highest ideals of which mankind is capable. Each of the great religions has an esoteric aspect in which methods for learning to actually live by these values are transmitted orally to specially prepared aspirants. G.I. Gurdjieff, a contemporary of Sigmund Freud, gained access to the hidden wisdom of Eastern and Western sacred technologies and formulated a body of teachings for use by present-day European and American seekers of self-realization. His system has rarely been taught outside closed groups of already committed students. Here at last is a clearly presented, concise introduction to his life, his work, and his ideas."--P. [i].
