About the Author

The name Samael Aun Weor is Hebrew and is pronounced sam-ayel on vay-ohr. Samael Aun Weor wrote over sixty books, gave thousands of lectures, and formed the worldwide Gnostic Movement, whose members number in the millions. And yet, in spite of his wisdom and generosity towards mankind, he said: "Do not follow me. I am just a signpost. Reach your own Self-realization." His lifelong mission was to deliver to humanity the total and exact science to develop the complete human being, that mysterious and ancient wisdom long hidden in the bosom of every great religion.

Read an Excerpt

If we make a comparative study of religions, we shall then discover phallicism at the foundation of all schools, religions and esoteric sects. Let us remember Peristera, the Nymph of Venus' entourage, who was transformed into a dove by love. Let us remember the virtuous Venus. Let us remember the processions of the God Priapus from the august ancient Rome of the Caesars when the priestesses of the Temple, filled with ecstasy, majestically carried an enormous phallus made out of sacred wood. Hence, Freud (the founder of psychoanalysis) correctly stated that religions have a sexual origin.

The Mysteries of Fire are contained within the Perfect Matrimony. All the cults to the Fire are totally sexual. The vestals were true priestesses of love. With them, the celibate priests reached adepthood. It is unfortunate that the modern vestals (nuns) do not know the key of Sexual Magic. It is unfortunate that the priests of this day and age have forgotten the secret key of sex. We feel profound pain when we see so many yogis ignoring the supreme key of yoga, which is Sexual Magic, the supreme synthesis of all systems of yoga.

People are filled with horror when they hear about Sexual Magic; however, they are not filled with horror when they give in to all kinds of sexual perversion and carnal passion.

In this book, dear reader, you have the synthesis of all religions, schools and sects.
