Shakyamuni

Do not believe in anything
simply because you have heard it.

Do not believe in anything
simply because it is spoken and rumored by many.

Do not believe in anything
simply because it is found written in your religious books.

Do not believe in anything
merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.

Do not believe in traditions
because they have been handed down for many generations.

But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.

~ The Buddha [Kalama Sutra]

Manly P. Hall

Manly P. Hall 1929
Manly Palmer Hall
(18 March 1901 - 29 August 1990)

A world-renowned authority on philosophy, comparative religion and the esoteric doctrines of antiquity.

Founded the Philosophical Research Society in 1934 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the ensoulment of all arts, sciences, and crafts.

He was a Canadian-born author and mystic.

He is perhaps most famous for his work -
The Secret Teachings of All Ages — An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy , published in 1928 at the age of 26, which is widely regarded as his magnum opus.

On 8th December 1973, he was recognized as a 33 degree Mason (the highest honor conferred by the Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite) - at a ceremony held at PRS - despite never being initiated into the physical craft.

In his over 70-year career, Mr. Hall authored more than 150 books and essays, and delivered over 8000 lectures in the U.S. and abroad, in his multi-faceted role as a teacher of the universal laws through which the creating principle manifests itself.
