Manly P. HallManly Palmer Hall (March 18, 1901 – August 29, 1990) was a Canadian-born author and mystic. He is perhaps most famous for his work The Secret Teachings of All Ages: An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy, which is widely regarded as his magnum opus, and which he published at the age of 25 (or 27, 1928)

He has been widely recognized as a leading scholar in the fields of religion, mythology, mysticism, and the occult.

Carl Jung, when writing Psychology and Alchemy, borrowed material from Hall’s private collection.

In 1934, Hall founded the Philosophical Research Society (PRS) in Los Angeles, California, dedicating it to an idealistic approach to the solution of human problems. The PRS claims to be non-sectarian and entirely free from educational, political, or ecclesiastical control, and the Society’s programs stress the need for the integration of philosophy, religion, and science into one system of instruction. The PRS Library, a public facility devoted to source materials in obscure fields, has many rare and scarce items now impossible to obtain elsewhere.

In 1973 (47 years after writing The Secret Teachings of All Ages), Hall was recognized as a 33º Mason (the highest honor conferred by the Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite), at a ceremony held at PRS on December 8th, despite never being initiated into the physical craft.

In his over 70-year career, Hall delivered approximately 8,000 lectures in the United States and abroad, authored over 150 books and essays, and wrote countless magazine articles.

  2. The Creator of the Universe (The God that created Man) told you through Jesus no to be deceived. You are following a man like you were told not to do. You are following the creation not the Creator. Get out while you still have the breath of life in you. Read the Bible on your own and develop your own personal relationship with God. Just you and God no one else… >

  6. between manly p hall and allan watts and joseph cambel and blavatsky and anything out of the theosophical society and other gnosis. I have learned to know nothing and have started to see with out the fog of mind. through them i am taming my eidolon ,ahamkara, opponent, ego or simply internal noise.
    what is taught by these and others, the universal gnosis is not anything to learn, its a dying of self and waking of. . . . tat tvam asi
    the most terrifyingly beautiful experience of which every time i touch it, i become more consumed by the light.

  7. My whole life has been little more than one spiritual experience after the other. So much so I am being required to write about it. I am seeking others who would want to correspond who have a similar life journey.

  10. Romans 10:9

    If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,”and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

  11. this is no comment, but a question:
    I listened to Manly P. Halls videos on youtube and found out, that there is no material translated to german. I started to make a transcription of “The Atlatean Hypothesis” and translated the first part in german. My question: Are there any transcripts in english availiable frome this theme?

  12. All the info in the world,no matter how profound,is useless to the individual if seen through closed eyes,leaving only subjective opinion evidenced by the conflicting sects in religion today.
    Personal awakening through the death of the ego is the only way to knowledge
    (Gnosis). Know thyself and you shall know the universe and it’s gods.
    People such as M.P.H. can lead you to water but can’t make you drink.
    The path of the razor’s edge must be walked alone.
    Many will show interest in these matters,few will walk the walk.
    When the disciple is ready the Master appears.
    Practical instruction is available,online even,showing how to disolve the ego from
    moment to moment.If you’re ready then you’ll find it and understand it.
    Good luck all.

  13. Manly blows my mind. Everything this beloved brother says, seems to resonates deep within me. For me that’s the ONLY “truth-o-meter”. I was equally happy to find this site that allows downloads of his lectures. KUDOS to you manlyphall.org. Now I have it on my mobile phone as an MP3 and will certainly be listening to them on my business trips. No need to listen or watch the garbage they offer for in-flight entertainment. One love.

    This is a link to the Secret Teachings of All Ages typed out online. Outside of America the copyright ran out. It is not like having the book in hand and gets a little confusing, but hey, if you want to read it and you can get it, it is available in Canada online and she only mentions America where the copyright is in tact. so check it out if you want. I think when I read it and saw the pictures it was much better and I think she left a few things out, I am not sure. But worth the read if you haven’t read it before and want a peak.

  15. When Manly P. Hall’s work appeared in my life, I was very grateful. He makes so many connections in so many directions that not having his material would leave a large void in my esoteric education. He resonates deeply within me also. Really exciting that the second year instruction is available for download. Never downloaded anything before, always went for the books, so wish me luck.

  16. Manly P. Hall was a Master Mason from Jewel Lodge No. 754 in San Francisco. He later went through the Scottish Rite to become a 32nd Degree Scottish Rite Mason. The 33rd Degree, while honorary, is only conferred on Master Masons and is done so by the Supreme Council. Manly P. Hall was initiated, passed, and raised as a Mason. The fifth paragraph needs to be corrected.

  17. This should be useful info thank you

  18. I have Wynn’s Astrology, 1940’s issues. They have articles by MPH. Interested in purchasing?
