ABOUT THE BOOK

If true knowledge, the gnosis, is again to form a part of Christian teachings, the idea of levelling down to the capacities of the least developed must be definitely surrendered. Only by teaching above the grasp of the less evolved can the way be opened up for a restoration of arcane knowledge, and the study of the Lesser Mysteries must precede that of the Greater. The Lesser Mysteries- the partial unveiling of deep truths-can even now be restored, and this volume outlines them and shows the nature of the teachings that have to be mastered.

This work appeals only to the few who hunger for more than the exoteric teachings give them. For those who are fully satisfied with the exoteric teachings, it is not intended; for why should bread be forced on those who are not hungry? For those who hunger, may it prove bread, and not a stone.
