All and Everything First Series

After a lifetime spent in the teaching of a system of knowledge which he gave only to a small circle of pupils, George Ivanovitch Gurdjieff decided shortly before his death in October 1949 to publish the first of a series of his books which expresses his ideas in the form of a ‘cosmological epic based upon the legend of ‘Beelzebub’ — whose banishment to our solar system brings him into contact with mankind whose strange customs and problems he describes with deep compassion and at times with superb humour’.

This ‘all-wise Beelzebub’, with profound understanding of the weakness of humanity, points the way towards the regeneration of mankind through the development of the inner possibilities of man and presents a teaching of exceptional value for the world.

All and Everything is of special significance now, when the world is helplessly struggling to control the intensification of technical achievement which threatens to destroy the essential values and purpose of life. This book rediscovers the path which man was destined to follow in the universal scheme and from which he has gone so far astray.
