The First Public Revelation of the Hidden Sexual Teachings in Every Religion
"Love is the highest religion...” - Samael Aun Weor
In 1950, the Catholic Church had the author jailed because of this book, accused of “offending the public and healing the ill.” Afterwards, the book inspired the beginning of the worldwide Gnostic movement, now with millions of students.
The Perfect Matrimony is a complete introduction to the profound and beautiful mystical knowledge from which all the world’s great religions have blossomed. This is the source of the secret teachings of Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism, Alchemy, Tantra, Kabbalah, and the mysteries of the Mayans, Aztecs, Egyptians, Tibetans, Eleusians, Essenes, and hundreds more. Everything that lives was created through sex. Just the same, the soul is created through sex, but not the sex of the common person. To create divinity, one must understand divine sexuality. This knowledge has always been preserved in secret, held safely for those who demonstrated their ability to use it properly. Now, for the first time in history, that knowledge is publicly available in this book.
With the explanations in this book, you will understand not only many seemingly vague and incomprehensible scriptures, but also how all spiritual practices work. After reading this book, religion and sex make sense.
• Useful for followers of any spiritual tradition
• Gives practical methods to change our lives today
• Supported by solid science and authentic spiritual traditions
The Foundation of All Yoga, Religion and Mystery Schools
Within the worldwide canon of Gnostic and esoteric literature, The Perfect Matrimony stands as one of the most important texts available to the public today. This is due to the clarity, depth and precision through which the author explains the root science at the basis of all yoga and religions, known in eastern philosophies as White Tantra and in the Western Esoteric Tradition as Sexual Magic.
Although some authors within the past two centuries knew and practiced this science in secret, they were obliged by their corresponding esoteric orders not to completely unveil this type of teaching due to its dangerous power and the lack of preparation amongst public-level practitioners of religion. However, times have changed, evidenced by humanity's exposure to a plethora of spiritual teachings and increased enthusiasm to study esoteric subjects. All of this resulted from novel cosmic influences from the zodiacal sign of Aquarius, signifying revolutions within the field of mysticism.
This book by Samael Aun Weor stands on the front lines of such a spiritual revolution, since it was written in 1950 before the onslaught of such tremendous political, religious, spiritual and sexual upheaval. Its timing has provided ominous precedence, since its profound and clear message resonated and continues to resonate with people's inquietudes and dissatisfactions today. Such a book brings religions back to life from sterility, repression and the "dead letter," since it provides the missing keys to accessing genuine spiritual knowledge contained within yoga and religion.
The Perfect Matrimony provides ancient techniques for achieving genuine spiritual development, and is in alignment with the teachings of all the great prophets and initiates throughout antiquity. This is one reason why I find this book so compelling: it is not new age, superficial, paper-thin mysticism, without basis in humanity's cherished traditions, but grounded in the cultured, divine, and timeless wisdom of our most celebrated spiritual guides. A comparative study of religion through the principles explained in this book can provide you with evidence of this teaching's universality, and how Sexual Magic truly constitutes the highest form of religion and yoga. All it takes to recognize this fact is yearning, investigation and study, accompanied by the practical application of this knowledge for the betterment of one's spiritual life.
Such a book can help you unravel the beautiful but cryptic symbolism presented throughout the world's great scriptures, which have been mistakenly interpreted in a literal fashion for millennia. Alongside Alchemy, Tantra and Sexual Magic, Kabbalah is used to explain, in simple but profound terms, how this science has been taught in secret throughout all traditions. More importantly, Kabbalah is used to explain how scripture applies to us in practice.
This book serves practitioners of any religion and yoga in actualizing their intimate potential. It is compatible with all faiths, since it explains the practical synthesis within all the great mystical traditions. It is a book that can truly change your life if you practice its methods with sincerity. Through this book one can acquire genuine gnosis, which is personal cognizant knowledge of the divine.
