Editorial Reviews

Review

"My whole life I have struggled with the question of why I am here, and what I am supposed to do. Is it all an accident? Is there no purpose to living? Is there no meaning? These questions have truly haunted me most of my adult life. I really like the purpose and path of life Hermes puts forth in his writings. It is the first time I have come across spiritual teachings that really address these concerns. The reading definitely gave me something to think about."
-RB (reader, Amazon.com)


"I have waited for this translation my whole life."
-Mystic (reader, Amazon.com)


"This to me was in your face readable. Understandable."
-Chris (reader, Amazon.com)


"I have this book and three more by the author. Highly recommend all four. I'm a seeker and have read a lot in this field but these particular books have a special quality...simple and clearly written in such a way that one is constantly astonished. I'm thankful I stumbled upon them."
-Kristen Green (reader, Amazon.ca)


"Extraordinary. Fascinating. Love the way the author made the material much easier to understand. Easier to follow the Hermetic teachings. Indispensable."
-Kindle Customer (reader, Amazon.com)

From the Author

I came across the Hermetic teachings years ago first by way of The Kybalion. Up to that point, I had an image of what I imagined Egyptian thought to be in my head. Boy was I in for a surprise.
The ancient Egyptian teachings of Hermes were far different than what I had held in mind as Egyptian. The teachings were practical, and for me, a complete system of religious philosophy that included both our Western religious concepts of faith and prayer to a higher being as well as the Eastern religious ideas of meditation and enlightenment.  These teachings, it turns out, was the inspiration behind the Renaissance, which means "re-birth", and have been the (mostly uncredited) inspiration behind much of our modern science and modern thinking.  The Hermetica has turned out, for me, to be right up there with The Tao Te Ching. Whereas the Tao Te Ching concerns itself mostly with practical day to day living, The Hermetica dives into the purpose of life and why we are here. I really like that.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the Hermetica
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on August 5, 2020
The text adds stuff about rockets, cameras, supernovas, and "Om", Allah (?), "vibrations", replaces Atum with "IT", and removes all the Gods, removes Hermes hymn, adds new parts, and presents itself just like the original text...

That's insulting to Hermes, because it misrepresents his teachings and replaces them with someone elses.

You don't see Hindus rewriting the Bhagavad Gita, and adding new parts, and presenting it like the original, because they don't insult ancient texts. They add their interpretation separately, as a commentary.

Basically, it's a commentary.
