About Manly P. Hall

Mr. Hall published the large and well-known book "The Secret Teachings of All Ages" in 1928. In 1934 he founded the Philosophical Research Society, a non-profit organization dedicated to the dissemination of useful knowledge in the fields of philosophy, comparative religion, and psychology. In his 70-year career of dynamic public activity, he delivered over 8,000 lectures in the USA and abroad, authored over 200 books, and published 268 journals (1923-1990), which are magazines of around 80 pages each, containing articles mostly of his own writing.

Mr. Hall's books and lectures (both audio and printed) are widely available and well known, but his journals until now have been scarce and expensive in print. Through this site you can browse or search all of them, and download any of the journals from a PDF archive.

Also little known and scarce are his 60 Monthly Letters to Students (1934-1941), available here in PDF format.

Mr. Hall's writing is engaging, accessible, and typically profound, covering a fascinating range of knowledge and wisdom.

A contemporary video sequence of lectures on Manly P. Hall's writings and philosophy, created by Alexander Sachon, is available online.

For a biography about Mr. Hall's outer life, see the book Master of the Mysteries by Louis Sahagun.

From "Brothers of the Shining Robe"
(Fiction by Manly P. Hall)

It was my voice but the Master's words and as the moments passed he unfolded to the group gathered before me the basic principles of the ancient wisdom. He told of the sacred school of the Twelve Prophets; of the ray of the Black Light; of the Planet of Death and the sacred Lamasaries in India; of the Brothers of the Shining Robe and their labors with mankind and the powers which they have over life and death; and then of the children of men chosen to know the mysteries of God.

At last he stopped and my tongue grew silent too for there seemed no more to say. And so, dazed and bewildered, I sat down—with the Master still beside me.

Hall, Manly P., "Brothers of the Shining Robe," Chapter 4. The All-Seeing Eye (October, 1923) Vol. 1, No. 6: p. 10

An Anecdote about Manly P. Hall

The first question Mr. Claude Bragdon, American mystic, asked Mr. Hall immediately after their first meeting was:

"Mr. Hall, how do you know so much more about the mathematics of Pythagoras than even the authorities on the subject?"

Standing beside both these dear American friends of mine, I was wondering with trepidation in my heart what reply Mr. Hall would make.

"Mr. Bragdon," answered Mr. Hall quickly, unhesitatingly, and with a simultaneous flash of smile in his eyes and on his lips, "you are an occult philosopher. You know that it is easier to know things than to know how one knows those things."

In silence Claude Bragdon, the famous authority in the Fourth Dimension, looked at the radiant face, and into the fathomless eyes of Manly P. Hall; and in silence the four eyes spoke in the solemn language of the soul.
