BEELZEBUB'S TALES TO HIS GRANDSON is Gurdjieff's world-famous cosmological epic. It examines human life on Earth from the viewpoint of beings belonging to a distant world, led by the 'all-wise Beelzebub'. Through this cosmological allegory - rich in humour, anecdote and linguistic elaboration - Gurdjieff demonstrates a methodology for the spiritual growth of all mankind.

About the Author:
Gurdjieff was born in Alexanderpol in 1877 and trained both as a priest and physician. For some twenty years he travelled in the remotest regions of Central Asia and the Middle East, moulding his thought. On his return he began to gather pupils in Moscow, and from this base his ideas began to spread worldwide.

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. An allegory for ' . . . the most convincing fusion of Eastern and Western thought that has yet been seen.' - Martin Seymour-Smith, The 100 Most Influential Books Ever Written (1998) The spiritual way brought by G.I. Gurdjieff (1866-1949) has been recognized as one of the most original, enduring, and penetrating teachings of our time. While he used varied forms of transmission-such as group meetings, meditation, dance, and music-Gurdjieff gave special importance to the publication of Beelzebub's Tales to His Grandson. This allegory, majestic in argument and scale, ranges in scope from the genesis of the cosmos and the unfolding of life at all levels, through the history of mankind, to vividly detailed portraits the convey Gurdjieff's vision of human purpose in the vast cosmological scheme. It presents an incisive critique of the violence and misdirection in human culture, though this is always tempered by the author's compassionate humour and emphasis on the potential for evolution. In this book Gurdjieff speaks a patterned language, unlike that of any other writer, to dismay automatic thinking. The present volume returns to print the classic edition first published in 1950. 'In Beelzebub's Tales, soaring off into space, like a great, lumbering, flying cathedral, Gurdjieff gathered the fundamentals of his teaching.' - P.L. Travers With Beelzebub's Tales to His Grandson, G.I. Gurdjieff intended to "destroy, mercilessly . the beliefs and views about everything existing in the world." This novel beautifully brings to life the visions of humanity for which Gurdjieff has become esteemed. Beelzebub, a man of worldly (and other-worldly) wisdom, shares with his grandson the anecdotes, personal philosophies, and lessons learned from his own life.The reader is given a detailed discussion of all matters physical, natural, and spiritual, from the creation of the cosmos to man's teleological purpose in the universe. This edition of Beelzebub's Tales to His Grandson — the first single-volume paperback to appear in English — restores the original, authoritative translation.
