The Egyptian Arch-Gnosis volume 1, J. van Rijckenborgh
In the first volume of The Egyptian Arch-Gnosis, J. van Rijckenborgh outlines the fundamental state of man on the basis of the Tabula Smaragdina and the first two books of the Corpus Hermeticum. Mankind is bound to temporariness, while eternity is its destination. The reader will become aware of the great potential of man as a microcosm. The clarifications of the texts ignite the knowledge of the heart and lead towards insight in the eternal wisdom inherent to the Hermetic texts.
The Egyptian Arch-Gnosis volume 2, J. van Rijckenborgh
The second volume of The Egyptian Arch-Gnosis – on the basis of books 3 to 9 of the Corpus Hermeticum of Hermis Trismegistus – presents the conditions for, as well as the phases of the path of liberation. The first condition is the profoundly experienced insight that mankind, in its current existence, is separated from God and does not know him. By sacrificing his ‘I’, man can undo this separation, can be nourished by the forces of the spirit, and overcome death.
The Egyptian Arch-Gnosis volume 3, J. van Rijckenborgh
The impediments on the path are described by the author in volume three, based on the books 10, 11 and 12 of the Corpus Hermeticum. He makes clear to the reader that a new attitude of life is a necessity. A new desire in the heart attracts light force, which influences the blood. The blood, charged with light force, subsequently enlightens the head and induces a new thinking! This sustained new attitude of life is the gateway to the mystery temple.
The Egyptian Arch-Gnosis volume 4, J. van Rijckenborgh
Volume 4 contains the books 13 to 17 of the Corpus Hermeticum, describing the results on the path of liberation: how the heart can change and be liberated. How becoming still for God works as a supreme remedy. How everyone following the path of the soul is connected to every other one. And how this process gives access to new, immortal powers. Those who search in truth, will understand and follow the sound of the call, which approaches them from the Hermetic wisdom.
