- What is Hermetics?
Hermeticism is a collection of Gnostic philosophies and teachings attributed to Hermes Trismegistus. Also called the Egyptian Mysteries (or The Holy Mysteries referred to in the Bible), Hermeticism (Hermetic Philosophy) encompasses the spiritual laws of spirit, soul, and body and is a universal system of spiritual growth, requiring neither religious doctrine nor guru. Hermeticism is a Western Hermetic Tradition, originally only available in the Prophet Schools to a select few. Franz Bardon was commissioned by Divine Providence to reveal these Mysteries in this critical period of humankind’s spiritual development in book form. Franz Bardon’s system of spiritual growth divides the human being into three bodies: the physical, the mind (spirit), and the soul and thus engages the reader to fully develop these three bodies to reach his or her spiritual perfection.
- Initiation into Hermetics
by Franz Bardon (The Holy Mysteries, The First Tarot Card, Meditation)
Many readers are probably aware that the Tarot is not a game of cards serving mantic or prophetic purposes. Instead it is a book of initiation in which the greatest secrets are contained symbolically. The first card or first page of this book introduces the Magician, who represents the mastery of the elements and offers the key to the first Arcanum, the secret of the ineffable name Tetragrammaton, the Kabbalistic YOD-HEH-VAU-HEH. Here we find the gate of initiation for magicians. The reader of this book will realize how meaningful and how universal the application of the first Tarot card really is. In no other book that has been published so far has the true sense of the first Tarot card been so clearly described as in this work.
- The Practice of Magical Evocation
by Franz Bardon (The Holy Mysteries, The Second Tarot Card, Angel-Spirits)
Throughout the ages, and primarily during the past few centuries, many lengthy dissertations have been published on the art of higher magic. Unfortunately, they are for the most part such bewildering and incomplete remnants that very little of it can be taken as a point of reference for practical studies, and this only in small fragments. The original initiative for magic was known only to a very few lodges and was reserved for a particularly chosen few, while for the seekers of truth who searched diligently for any information, this subject matter remained dark and mysterious.
- The Key to the True Kabbalah
by Franz Bardon (The Holy Mysteries, The Third Tarot Card, The Spoken Word)
The science of the Kabbalah, or theurgy, is of extreme antiquity and has its origins in the Orient. Since time immemorial, the ancient sages have concealed their greatest secrets in a universal or metaphorical language, as may be seen from the hieroglyphics of the Egyptians and other ancient people.
- The Spiritual Path of Occultism
How to Develop Your Occult Powers was written for the explicit purpose of making people aware of the powers that they carry within them; powers that remain unused. Most people are not even aware of their existence. We are not weak creatures. We carry a might or power within which makes us independent from matter. This might actually elevate us to the Crown of Creation, once we know how to make use of it. This book will teach the reader how to accomplish this feat.
- Alchemical Secrets
When dealing with alchemy, we are not dealing with the processes of the great outer world, but instead with very secret microcosmic processes which have formed, since time immemorial, the central subject of the Mysteries. Therefore it can be said, and rightfully so, that the Hermetic sciences are the oldest sciences mankind has. It is probable that these sciences originated from a tradition which even the ancient Egyptians held in awe, and which they depicted as secrets of primeval times.
- The New Revelation
by Jakob Lorber
The long-awaited New Revelation as promised in the Holy Bible was recorded by Austrian mystic Jakob Lorber during the mid-1800s. Comprising tens of thousands of pages, the New Revelation teaches us the laws of the universe from a non-denominational viewpoint, presented in understandable terms. The lost books of Moses are recorded in the form of Earth & Moon and Saturn, as are a host of other books meant to offer help and comfort in dealing with present-day events and prophecies. The New Revelation is the religion of the future for personal spiritual growth.
