In Cosmic Teachings of a Lama, Samael Aun Weor utilizes a poetic, metaphoric and symbolic language to present the secrets of creation, the goal of existence and the roadmap to unite with the authentic Being and to return to the source of creation, the Abstract Absolute Space.
The book begins with the Stanzas of Dzyan and right there in the Prologue, reveals the history and the story of Creation and Existence. There is a meaning to this; knowledge of Creation and Existence is not an end, but just a beginning. It is the beginning of a journey that is further explained and explored in the next forty eight chapters until one reaches the point of Negative Confession which is when Egos and Lunar Bodies do not exist anymore. The last chapter is a hint for walking on the road; experience of the Absolute and Transformation can only occur in silence and stillness of the mind.
Very well written. A lot of topics that are explained in a way that can be understood, but in depth
My reason for feeling this way is that the editor's notes give extremely important information regarding how to read the book for maximum understanding. I feel all of Samael Aun Weor's books should be read the same way, because as the editors explain, “this book was written for the only part of us that has any chance of understanding it: the consciousness, which is non-linear, intuitive, insightful , and wise.” Let me quote a couple more lines: "to understand this book, read it consciously, slowly, listening to the quiet impulses of your heart, and then go further: meditate profoundly on what you read here, for only then can the meaning become clear.”
The subtitle is “How to Be Born Again, The Science to Create the Superhuman” so each of the 49 chapters will help you develop your inner self/life.
For me it is an important reference book and a part of my Samael Aun Weor library. I love the book. It is a good size with a beautiful cover, has 334 pages and contains illustrations and a great glossary.
One last note: you need to know how to meditate to be able to understand this book. If you have not yet started meditating, I can suggest the book “The Elimination of Satan’s Tail” by the same author. It is a book on Gnostic psychology, meditation and the origins of suffering and has a chapter devoted to the techniques of meditation.
