An unabridged edition of the 1908 printing: A Study of The Hermetic Philosophy of Ancient Egypt and Greece
The Kybalion is a concise work on The Hermetic Philosophy outlining seven universal principles - Mentalism, Correspondence, Vibration, Polarity, Rhythm, Cause and Effect, and Gender. Rather than the actual Kybalion, this is purportedly an exegesis on that text. The Kybalion: Hermetic Philosophy is a book claiming to be the essence of the teachings of Hermes Trismegistus, published anonymously by a group or person under the pseudonym of "the Three Initiates".
Based on the teachings of Hermes Trismegistus, the ancient Egyptian who founded astrology and alchemy, The Kybalion seeks to offer mystical and mysterious secrets of the past. This historic text explains the Hermetic philosophy of success and illumination of life, that belonged to ancient Egypt and Greece, and provides clear direction for implementing these timeless secrets in modern life.
