Publisher's Summary

The oldest, the most profound, the most universal of all symbols is the human body. The Greeks, Persians, Egyptians, and Hindus considered a philosophical analysis of man's triune nature to be an indispensable part of ethical and religious training. The mysteries of every nation taught that the laws, elements, and powers of the universe were epitomized in the human constitution, that everything which existed outside of man had its analogue within man.

Here, renowned scholar Manly P. Hall covers the symbolism of the human body from a variety of angles. He goes over various parts of the body and what different cultures throughout time have believed. He examines everything from our extremities and hands to our eyes, heart and brain. He touches on the ancient mysteries, the Greeks, early Christianity, the Hebrew Qabbalists, and much more.

What a crock!

It's no wonder why those who reach illumination can't find their way in the dark.
