Adepts in the Western Esoteric Tradition, Part One
NEW PDF e-Book by Manly P. Hall
The legends of chivalry are veiled accounts of man's eternal search for truth. These beautiful stories are not, however, merely folklore. They are parts of an orderly tradition, unfolding through the centuries and bearing witness to a well-organized plan and program. Like the myths of classical antiquity, the hero tales are sacred rituals belonging to secret Fraternities perpetuating the esoteric doctrines of antiquity.
The origins of the "Grail Legend" begin with Manes, whose philosophy has surivived into modern times as the driving force behind Christian Mysticism. This tradition was perpetuated though the Troubadours, the Knights Templar of Jerusalem, Taliesin the Adept of Britian, the secret Druid assemblies of Wales, Merlin, King Arthur and the Round Table, the Holy Grail, the Grail Kings, Parsifal and Lohengrin. There are also striking parallels in the search for the mysterious temple of Shamballah, said to stand on the Imperishable Island in the midst of the Gobi Desert in Mongolia.
