Examines the left-hand direction and divulges the masters of the culture
• Explores the practices and ideology of many left-hand course teams, together with the Cult of Set, the Hell-Fire membership, and heretical Sufi, Zoroastrian, Christian, and Muslim sects
• Investigates many notorious occult personalities, together with Helena Blavatsky, Aleister Crowley, the Marquis de Sade, and Anton LaVey
• Explains the genuine 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 approach, the left-hand direction has been associated with many practices, cults, and contributors around the a long time. Stephen vegetation, Ph.D., examines the tools, teachings, and historic function of the left-hand direction, from its origins in Indian tantric philosophy to its underlying impression in present global affairs, and divulges which philosophers, magicians, and occult figures all through heritage can really be known as “Lords of the Left-Hand Path.”
Flowers explains that whereas the right-hand direction seeks union with and hence dependence on God, the left-hand direction seeks a “higher legislation” in response to wisdom and tool. it's the approach of self-empowerment and precise freedom. starting with historic Hindu and Buddhist sects and relocating Westward, he examines many alleged left-hand direction 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 several other heretical Sufi, Zoroastrian, Christian, and Muslim sects. Following a gently crafted definition of a real adherent of the left-hand direction in line with 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 course.
Flowers exhibits that the left-hand course 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.
