Oct 13, Slobodan Dzikoski rated it it was amazing. Begun over 50 years ago, and published in mimeographed format, it was developed by Willem Nyland and his groups. Any chapter can be accessed quickly by using the index links. You beelzevubs say, that they are more important now than ever. Since bewlzebubs know of no existing large type version of the Tales in print, what we provide here will allow you to adjust the font size on any PC or Mac to print out or read.

But in the event that notwithstanding this warning of mine, you should, nevertheless, wish to become acquainted with the further contents of my expositions, then there is already nothing grnadson left for me to do but to wish you with all my “genuine soul” a very, very good appetite, and that you may “digest” all that you read, not only for your own health but for the health of all those near you.

Eventually it becomes clear that the communication between Beelzebub and his grandson becomes a way for the author to communicate with us, and in that way provide us with a bigger perspective. Goodbye Fourth Way, it just ain’t the same without Mr. Briefly, if I exercise my privilege and take the good end of the stick, then the bad end must inevitably fall “on the reader’s head.

Finding Grandsonn in these cosmic actualizations incomprehensible for all three-brained beings, Beelzebub in a loud voice unusual for Him very penetratingly intoned the following words: Hi, we are recommended to try to embrace the idea of how we gurdjiefr part of the Universe, and more importantly, how the Universe is a part of us. The books he wrote have not just been a great source of argumentativeness, but also astonishment.

Gurdjiff day following this second appearance of the mentioned Sacred Individuals, His Conformity, escorted by one of the Seraphim, his second assistant, made His appearance at my house. This entire text online is encoded to determine unauthorized downloaded copies. It is, in a very rea”l way, one of the first truly ‘postmodern’ works of art. Some things may appear very forthright.

It has always seemed strange to me that people who have taken up the occupation of rendering ihs and explanations of Beelzebub’s Tales, have missed that obvious point. The explanation below is listed on the first page of every book.

Having said this, Beelzebub was thoughtful, and this time longer than usual, and then, turning again to his grandson, he said:. And I, as the “hero of the day,” stalked at the head of them all. Thanks to the impetuosity and force of Beelzebub’s nature, his intervention together with his comrades then soon captured all minds, and the effect was to bring the central kingdom of the Megalocosmos almost to the edge of revolution.

This original personality of mine, already “smelled out” by graneson definite individuals from both choirs of the Judgement Seat Above, whence Objective justice proceeds, and also here on Earth, by as yet a very limited number of people, is based, as I already said, on three secondary specific data formed in me at different times during my preparatory age. However, the further I read, the more Gurdijieff’s mad genius stood out to me. My astonishment increased still more, because in spite of the darkness which instantly ensued, it could clearly be seen through the walls of the Hrhaharhtzaha, that the needles of the Ammeter and Voltmeter still stood in their former places.


Many other things are also vrandson of a kind that the beings of Earth not only would not like to encounter, but not even experience in thought. When I heard about this Karapet and of this practice of his, I visited him one evening after the day’s work, with a small boordook of ‘Kakheteenian’ wine, and after performing this indispensable local solemn “toasting ritual,” I asked him, of course in a suitable form and also according to the local complex of “amenities” established for mutual relationship, why he did this.

Es un libro que requiere, como Gurdjieff lo indica, hacer a un lado nuestros conceptos pre-establecidos, y abrir o limpiar nuestra mente para comprenderlo. This psycho-organic principle of mine I shall this hix begin to actualize not by following the practice of all writers, established from the remote past down to the present, of taking as the theme of their various writings the events which have supposedly taken place, or are taking place, on Earth, but shall take instead as the scale of events for my writings — the whole Universe.

The Great Beelzebub, telling stories to his grandson, leads us to rediscover in the depths of ourselves, God’s quiet representative.

In order to alleviate the bitterness of my inner hurt owing to this, I must say that in my early youth, when I became interested in and was greatly taken up with philological questions, I preferred the Armenian language to all others I then spoke, even to gyrdjieff native language. I first read Meetings With Remarkable Men after being given it by a man who I didn’t know and geelzebubs only met once before briefly.

That’s why Gurdjieff wrote “Beelzebub’s Tales” in the manner he did. Well, now, patient reader, I must really conclude this opening chapter. From this blow, Graneson, as is said, “saw stars,” and at the same time my mouth became as beeelzebubs as if it had been stuffed with the food necessary for the artificial fattening of a thousand chickens.

I personally am beelzebugs pleased with the arising of this curiosity even though only in your “false” consciousness, as I already know from experience that this impulse unworthy of man can sometimes even pass from this consciousness into one’s nature and become a worthy impulse — the impulse of the desire for knowledge, which, in its turn, assists the better perception and even the closer understanding of the essence of any object on which, as it sometimes happens, the attention of a contemporary man might be concentrated, and therefore I am even willing, with pleasure, to satisfy this curiosity which has arisen in you at the present moment.

Gurdjieff tries to depict human civilization in a way that everything has gales terribly wrong, human race having failed almost completely in most aspects of life- as- it- should- be, humanity having destroyed all efforts to correct this.

In other words, one must feel a strong suspicion that there is more to life than what one perceives, and only then can we discover the possibilities that are within us. After many writings and rewritings, the first volume was released under the title Beelzebub’s Tales to His Beelzebubss. To judge this work I need to first read all three parts, I also plan to read first part for a second I have only read book one of this work, out of three, book one is the only having been translated into Greek.

At the same time, this book is illuminating,revelatory, humorous, and, at times charged with emotional energy that transmits itself to the reader. The first of these data, from the very beginning of its arising, became as it were the chief directing lever of my entire wholeness, and the other two, the “vivifying-sources,” as it were, for the feeding and perfecting of this first datum.

However that may have been, yet the real fact, illuminated from every side like an American advertisement, and which fact cannot now be changed by any forces even with the knowledge of the experts in “monkey business,” is that although I, who have lately been considered by very many people as a rather good teacher of temple dances, have now become today a professional writer and will of course write a great deal — as it has been proper to me since childhood whenever “I do anything to do a great deal of it” — nevertheless, not having, as you see, the automatically acquired and automatically manifested practice necessary for this, I shall be constrained to write all I have thought out in ordinary simple everyday language established by life, without any literary manipulations and without any “grammarian wiseacrings.

When Hassein asks his grandfather Beelzebub if he thinks there is any hope for the three-brained beings on Earth, the answer could very talss come across as somewhat disheartening. The result was that the whole of the enormous Khrh or ‘workshop’ was suddenly so strongly lit up that our organs of sight temporarily ceased to function and only after a considerable time had passed could we with great difficulty raise our eyelids and look around.
