George Ivanovitch Gurdjieff Book Review


It is a recent phenomenon in human history that the life and teachings of a great spiritual teacher should be recorded in written account relatively soon after their passing. In the case of George Ivanovitch Gurdjieff, the task is of extra importance as he himself identified the process through which subsequent generations would “peck-like-crows-at-a-jackal’s-carcass” and distort all that the teacher had spoken and indicated. Gurdjieff himself took great pains to avoid this fate through the creation of his own series of writings, his “legominism” through which he preserved his indications for future generations, but in the case of an objectively impartial biography of this epic figure, a void has now been filled. For those unfamiliar with Gurdjieff, the review of the biography below is a good introduction; for those daring to explore still further, the book can be purchased at:
