The Association of Gnostic Anthropology Samael Aun Weor is an institution created with the purpose of achieving the self-development of man through the study of the Being and the knowledge.
Its object of study is man, its origin; that which he is, the cultures created by him and the universe in which he lives. As the basis of this study we have Gnosticism and its universal principles.
The term "Gnosticism" gathers in the same meaning of the word the idea of systems or currents dedicated to the study of Gnosis.
The word "gnosis" comes from the Greek "gnosis," which means "knowledge." Gnosis is the illuminated knowledge reserved for an elite.
Gnosis is a very natural function of the Conscience, a Philosophy Perennis et Universalis. Gnosis is the intelligent principle, that in each time hides behind the symbolism, and that in a philosophical form responds to these three eternal questions: Why? How? Where?
Gnosis is a profound superior emotion that leads to the search of all the beauty and sublime of the magisterial art or Regal Arts of nature. Gnostic science is mathematical in the investigation and exact in the expression.
In definitive, Gnosis is that cosmic eternal principle dressed with the religious forms of each race, town or culture, according to the present idiosyncrasy of each period. A doctrine of synthesis with its completely own values, that allows the sincere seeker to arrive at the essence of the universal knowledge.
