This book is concerned with producing an organic view of the history of human culture and enlightenment, which has culminated in the highest values and attainments of the Spirit.
Oscar takes us on an enlightened journey from 20,000 B.C. from the Magdalenian period up through Egyptian, Phoenician, Babylonian, Persian, and Greek culture. He shows how this line of culture proceeds through the Milesians, Eleatics and Platonism up to Proclus and Damascius, and presents a continuous truth that unifies and makes sense of the whole. This narrative includes the Teachings of the realized Wise Man of the ancient Platonists, Cynics, Stoics, Megarians, and Skeptics, and the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas of the Mahayana Tradition. He analyzes the origins of Christianity from a historical perspective, explaining and making transparent the meaning of the Mysteries of the pre-Christian world. Sources are clearly delineated, including those that show a Eurocentric point of view.
This is a fascinating, thought-provoking book that opens our understanding of the earliest peoples who were totally conscious of the spiritual life and the Soul that survived death and entered immortality; and of how through different schools this consciousness perdured through the millennia.
Through Oscar’s Teachings, Human Culture and Enlightenment will open a deep appreciation of the importance of the Higher States of Consciousness as a cultural manifestation and generate an immense gratitude for the blessings of our beloved School.
