Samael Aun Weor

 Samael Aun Weor (March 6, 1917 – December 24, 1977), Samael Aun Weor was a self-made man, but not by the means of secularism. He was handsome in a Frank Sinatra type way; however, his determination was not driven by the egoistic antics of fame and fortune. Yes, he was famous, but only in the eyes of those who understood and practiced his philosophy, his ideas about life, his beliefs about truth, humankind, and the universe. Samael Aun Weor was the modern-day pioneer of the Gnostic-movement. Gnosis, Greek for “knowledge,” is a practicable, eternal acumen that steers one on the path of self-realization.


Samael Aun Weor, born Victor Manuel Gómez-Rodriguez came into the world in the Republic of Colombia in 1917. Geared as a child toward the Roman Catholic religion, he was baptized in a Roman Catholic Church; however, eventually Weor abandoned the Church of Rome. His family history is scant but it is known that he had a brother, and after divorce from his mother, his father remarried.

At the age of twelve, Weor left his Roman Catholic-Jesuit school, disenchanted by religion. He preferred the deeper and less emotional aspects of enlightenment. He studied metaphysics and esoteric dissertations. Later on, Samael Aun Weor became a writer, speaker, and Gnostic educator. He preferred to express a philosophical, cryptic knowledge of Eastern and Western tradition.

Samael Aun Weor declared his awareness of being born with an “enlightened” consciousness and analyzed his previous lives, he professes, before he could walk. In the eyes of those who are “aware,” the Soul goes through many incarnations until it finally relinquishes the delusional ego-self and begins its road to divine consciousness, never to sleep in delusion again. He was invited to speak at the nearby Theosopohical Chapter, and after one year. Weor was accepted into the occult culture Fraternitas-Rosicruciana-Antiqua.

For the duration of his time in the F.R.A, Samael Aun Weor meticulously learned the complete Rosicrucian-library. It was then he supposedly realized the mystery of the white “Sexual Magic,” or “Great Arcanum,” the all-illusive path that allegedly highlights all the world’s greatest religions. Only bits and pieces are known about the details of the life of Samael Aun Weor from the 1930s to the 1950s.

We do know that he became somewhat of a spiritual vagrant, wandering without a home or money. His wanderings took him to many places such as the Sierra Nevada de Santa-Marta in northern Columbia where he formed the basis for his medical discourse “Occult Medicine and Practical Magic.” During this time, Sam Aun Weor alleged to have experienced the “illuminating void,” encountering his “inner self,” or Atman who was called “Aun Weor,” or light and strength, in Hebrew.


The writings of Samael Aun Weor represented an intense inner knowing. A clarification that could only be revealed by one who worked on himself through meditation and mental discipline. He is known as the “Master of Synthesis,” because his work includes strategies and ideas of both Eastern and Western hemispheres. Weor’s work discloses the wisdom of the Eastern understanding of the existence of mankind. Through reincarnation, karma, and meditation, Samael Aun Weor learned that mankind could transcend suffering and find his autonomy.

On the other hand, Samael Aun Weor comprehended and expressed the uniformity and fluency of Western and Christian Science. His work encompassed both methods from a practical aspect. According to Samael Aun Weor, a real human-being is an individual without imperfections, as stated in Eastern philosophy, “man is God on earth.” Weor writes of the enlightenment of consciousness as being akin to customary Buddhist philosophy. All through his works, he depicts various comparable progressions as they are revealed in differing religions.

Even though Weor received no income from his work, he survived from the charity of his many students. Samael Aun Weor forsook copyrights. He wanted his books to reach any and everyone. His only demand was that his books were sold cheaply making them accessible to the poor, to all children of God. Because of his dedication to assist with the ending of affliction of mankind around the world through his teachings, Samael Aun Weor desired that the most destitute of humanity be able to obtain his books, with only two pennies if need be.


Samael Aun Weor always highlighted and taught sensible Gnosticism. Weor’s mission was to, and still beyond his death, awaken individuals to the truth of their existence, but this can only be accomplished through “direct experience.” Woer felt that the transformation in essence represents awakening from a deep-sleep. A sleep that has mankind hypnotized to his real-self, his God-self. The ego’s hold on humanity is the cause of its distress; however, mankind can only be free when he conquers this great monster within.

According to Samael Aun Weor, the “rebirth” occurs when three factors are put into practice. These are:

-Death: the eradication of the ego
-Birth: the development of a genuine man through sexual-transmutation and alchemy
-Sacrifice: doing for others without expectation of anything in return. In other words, you do good because you love to do good, not because you desire recognition or compensation.


Weor wrote more than seventy books, encompassing a wide spectrum of anthropological, philosophical, and esoteric topics. Some titles were allegedly written following Weor’s death, and may actually correspond to their English translations from Spanish. Here are some of his most popular titles:

1951-The Zodiacal Course
1953-The Seven Words
1961-Introduction to Gnosis
1963-Marriage, Divorce, and Tantra
1966-The Book of the Dead
1969-Esoteric Course of Kabbalah
1970-Fundamental Education
1970-Beyond Death
1973-Chirstmas Message
1977-The Mysteries of Christic Esoterism
1983-The Revolution of the Dialectic

Samael Aun Weor gave mankind absolute practical knowledge in more than seventy books that he authored and more than 500 cassette speeches accrued during his lifetime. Nonetheless, Weor was a humble individual who knew that his journey was not complete and that “there was much work to achieve on himself.” Regardless of what he felt about himself, to the individual that is unawake, Samael Aun Weor represented an enlightened Soul, one who had attained the great work, the philosopher’s stone, the ultimate reality. During his existence, Woer left mankind with a map, a means of arriving to a place that surpasses all delusion, the path to pure, authentic freedom. He made his earthly exit in December 1977.
