This glossary provides definitions, etymologies, and meanings of select words from all forms of science, philosophy, religion, and art from every major tradition in the world, and therefore embrace the whole of human experience.
We drink deeply from the world's great treasure of language and mystical expression, and take full advantage of the power of words. We know that what cannot be expressed accurately in one language may find its perfect meaning in another tongue. Therefore, we provide this glossary so that you may understand with precision the words that we use.
“Gnosis is lived upon facts, withers away in abstractions, and is difficult to find even in the noblest of thoughts.”
