One often sees books sold by a title. This is no exception as there are examples of prayers in it that can not be remotely described as Gnostic. For example the 'Apostles' Creed. The Creeds were written by the early orthodox Christian Church as a baptismal oaths, and are mostly anti gnostic. If you were a gnostic Christian of the time you could not possibly swear to the Apostles' Creed. It's also miss-quoted as the original says 'the holy catholic church', not 'the holy Gnostic Church'. For example, early Gnostics did not believe in 'the resurrection of th body' as the creed quotes, or in God as a Father. 'Hail Mary' is also a questionable inclusion in the book as this was also written by the later Roman Catholic Church. The same goes for the prayer of Francis of Assisi which cannot be possibly seen as a Gnostic prayer. Nice prayers but not Gnostic.

I understand why the two reviews on this Gnostic Prayer book may say this book is not Gnostic but I can assure you that it most certainly is. If we understand that tradition through the many beautiful books of Samael Aun Weor we will start to understand the synthesis of all religions and the Gnostic way to experience to the fullest what religion and occultism has to offer.

I assure you all this is a beautiful Gnostic Prayer book with very powerful prayers that will help any spiritual aspirant along their path of liberation.

God bless you all.

When the mind has achieved absolute calm and silence, it can concentrate on the Inner Self. This concentration is done with the help of prayer. Pray to your Inner Self. Try to converse with your Inner Self. Remember that praying is conversing with God. You can pray without formulae; in other words, talk to God, tell Him what your heart feels with infinite love. - Samael Aun Weor

Like many people today, Surekha Minati Keerthana sought wisdom through many traditional religions, but none spoke to her heart or satiated her spiritual longing. At her spiritual crossroads and without a clear path before her, she prayed constantly and sincerely for the truth to be revealed. When she discovered Gnosis, she found what she was seeking: the practical basis of all religions, which develops psychological stability and discipline, and reveals genuine inner tranquility. Prayer brought her to Gnosis, and Gnosis brought her back to true life. Surekha Minati Keerthana is a Sanskrit pen name that means "prayer and devotional song."

The prayers and concepts of this relatively short 'book' are generally hijacked from other religions, which of itself is no bad thing, but from religions totally at odds with Gnosticism! Heavily reliant on the works of someone else for guidance of choice of even guidance of insight, this is a sorry disappointment for anyone genuinely searching for prayers to a Gnostic Unknowable All, or even The Master (and mayhap the personification of The All) Jesus.
The smoke-screen is further aided by the swapping of key words in standard prayers from other (alien) faiths with the word 'Gnostic', and occasionally hints at phraseology taken from a cursory reading of genuine Gnostic works and their interpretive commentaries by genuine authors.
