. Explores the practices and beliefs of many left-hand path groups,
including the Cult of Set, the Hell-Fire Club and heretical Sufi,
Zoroastrian, Christian and Muslim sects . Investigates many
infamous occult personalities, including Helena Blavatsky, Aleister
Crowley, the Marquis de Sade and Anton LaVey . Explains the true
difference between the right-hand path and the left-hand path -
union with and dependence on God versus individual freedom and
self-empowerment From black magic and Satanism to Gnostic sects and
Gurdjieff's Fourth Way, the left-hand path has been linked to many
practices, cults and individuals across the ages. Stephen Flowers
examines the methods, teachings and historical role of the
left-hand path, from its origins in Indian tantric philosophy to
its underlying influence in current world affairs and reveals which
philosophers, magicians and occult figures throughout history can
truly be called "Lords of the Left-Hand Path." Flowers explains
that while the right-hand path seeks union with and, thus,
dependence on God, the left-hand path seeks a "higher law" based on
knowledge and power. It is the way of self-empowerment and true
freedom. Beginning with ancient Hindu and Buddhist sects and moving
Westward, he examines many alleged left-hand path groups, including
the Cult of Set, the Yezidi Devil Worshippers, the Assassins, the
Neoplatonists, the Hell-Fire Club, the Bolsheviks, the occult Nazis
and several heretical Sufi, Zoroastrian, Christian and Muslim
sects. Following a carefully crafted definition of a true adherent
of the left-hand path based on two main principles -
self-deification and challenge to the conventions of "good" and
"evil" - the author analyses many famous and infamous
personalities, including H. P. Blavatsky, Faust, the Marquis de
Sade, Austin Osman Spare, Aleister Crowley, Gerald Gardner, Anton
LaVey and Michael Aquino and reveals which occult masters were
Lords of the Left-Hand Path. Flowers shows that the left-hand path
is not inherently evil but part of our heritage and our deep-seated
desire to be free, independent and in control of our destinies.
