G.I. Gurdjieff was an influential spiritual teacher who maintained that neither science nor religion entailed the answers to life’s crucial questions. This guru, in his ostensibly astute observation, believed that most human beings were in a state of entrancing, ‘waking sleep’ and that it is possible to rise to a higher level of consciousness by means of spirituality. Thus, he developed a discipline called ‘The Work’, which implied ‘work on oneself’. In his lifetime, he offered to display a path to his followers—one which would show them a way to live a meaningful, fulfilling life. His commanding, powerful personality was supposedly enough to stun a whole room. With great oratory skills, Gurdjieff exuded a sense of self-confidence and allure. He is best-known for his works, ‘All and Everything’. His teachings, very much like those of Ouspensky, promised his followers an admission into acryptic world of primeval spiritual wisdom. Today, there are more than a dozen ‘Gurdjieff Foundation’ centres around the world that are working towards preserving and promoting the works of this spiritual leader.
