A Full Circle?

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

You may have noticed that there is a strong platonic element to the hermetic writings? There are sections in some Hermetic texts that almost match passages within Plato's classic works.

This influence, however, is not as simple as you might think!

We know that most early Greek philosophers trained in Egypt (Plato was there for 13 years under the tuition of a priest of Horus called Sechnuphi), so much of their teachings might have come from the land of the Nile.

We also know that the Hermetic texts were written by Greek philosophers who were given the role of translating the Egyptian mysteries into Greek philosophical language.

Did things come full circle?

About Martin

My life's work has been to learn and master the art of meditation. To do this I have practiced and studied meditation with unbroken, daily discipline for over two decades as taught in the works of Franz Bardon. However, just like Bardon himself, I have also dedicated my life to gathering what is of use from different traditions around the world - whether hidden in the Japanese mountains, Egyptian desert or with the Indian yogis.
