• Investigates many notorious occult personalities, together with Helena Blavatsky, Aleister Crowley, the Marquis de Sade, and Anton LaVey
• Explains the real distinction among the right-hand direction and the left-hand path--union with and dependence on God as opposed to person freedom and self-empowerment
From black magic and Satanism to Gnostic sects and Gurdjieff’s Fourth manner, the left-hand course has been associated with many practices, cults, and participants around the a while. Stephen plants, Ph.D., examines the tools, teachings, and ancient position of the left-hand course, from its origins in Indian tantric philosophy to its underlying impact in present global affairs, and divulges which philosophers, magicians, and occult figures all through background can really be referred to as “Lords of the Left-Hand Path.”
Flowers explains that whereas the right-hand direction seeks union with and therefore dependence on God, the left-hand course seeks a “higher legislations” in keeping with wisdom and gear. it's the approach of self-empowerment and real freedom. starting with historic Hindu and Buddhist sects and relocating Westward, he examines many alleged left-hand course teams, together with the Cult of Set, the Yezidi satan Worshippers, the Assassins, the Neoplatonists, the Hell-Fire membership, the Bolsheviks, the occult Nazis, and a number of other heretical Sufi, Zoroastrian, Christian, and Muslim sects. Following a gently crafted definition of a real adherent of the left-hand direction according to major principles--self-deification and problem to the conventions of “good” and “evil”--the writer analyzes many well-known and notorious personalities, together with H. P. Blavatsky, Faust, the Marquis de Sade, Austin Osman Spare, Aleister Crowley, Gerald Gardner, Anton LaVey, and Michael Aquino, and divulges which occult masters have been Lords of the Left-Hand Path.
Flowers exhibits that the left-hand direction isn't really inherently evil yet a part of our historical past and our deep-seated wish to be unfastened, self reliant, and answerable for our destinies.
