Mystery of the Golden Flower

Sacred Sexuality and Liberation from Suffering

A Book by Samael Aun Weor

Discover how your greatest creative power is also your greatest spiritual power.

“All of us possess some electrical and magnetic forces within, and, just like a magnet, we exert a force of attraction and repulsion... Between lovers that magnetic force is particularly powerful and its action has a far-reaching effect.” —Samael Aun Weor

In the heart of every religion there are teachings about intimate human relationships, a sacred knowledge about the transformative power of sex, which states that true spiritual mastery is a result of conquering base desires and transforming them into conscious virtues. Harnessing and transforming the most powerful forces within places us on a revolutionary path to spiritual awakening. That is why Krishna, the Christ of Hinduism, said, “I am sex not contrary to dharma.” This is why Jesus explained the need to be born again. Every birth is a result of sex. Spiritual birth is no exception, and is accomplished not by common, everyday sex, but through a divine, pure form of sexuality. This type of sexuality is hidden in all religions and mythologies, and was first revealed in the writings of Samael Aun Weor.

Filled with lively, entertaining stories, The Mystery of the Golden Flower explains the practical methods of sexual transmutation, and how preserved sexual energy can become Kundalini, the fire of Pentecost, the power to destroy the psychological afflictions that bind us to suffering. This is the ancient science hidden in Hindu and Buddhist Tantra, Chinese and Western Alchemy, Taoism, and many other traditions. For instance, sacred sexuality was hidden in the Chinese Taoist book called “The Secret of the Golden Flower,” made famous by Carl Jung, in which the “secret” was not revealed. Here, in The Mystery of the Golden Flower, it is.
