BEELZEBUB'S TALES TO HIS GRANDSON is Gurdjieff's world-famous cosmological epic.

About George Gurdjieff

Gurdjieff was born in Alexanderpol in 1877 and trained both as a priest and physician. For some twenty years he travelled in the remotest regions of Central Asia and the Middle East, moulding his thought. On his return he began to gather pupils in Moscow, and from this base his ideas began to spread worldwide.
