Scientology means Knowledge
The word Scientology is taken from the Latin word Scio (knowing in the fullest sense of the word) and the Greek word logos (to study).
People have been led to believe that life is complex and man unknowable. But Scientology holds the opposite view – it is possible to know oneself and to gain a real understanding of other people and life.
Scientology is an invitation to inspect one's life
What are your goals?
How much can you improve?
Are you just coping with the stresses of daily life?
Scientology is organised so that one may easily learn and use its fundamental principles and produce remarkable changes within oneself and in helping those around them.
Scientology: A Knowledge of Life
L. Ron Hubbard discovered Scientology and organised its principles in a life–long study and quest to find workable answers to the many questions of life. Who am I? Where did I come from and where am I going? These are but some of the questions we ask of ourselves.
Scientology is a workable religious philosophy that does not teach any dogma, but rather believes that the answers to these eternal questions lie within you. Scientology is a way or a path to unlock these riddles and find real answers.
In this way Scientology follows a tradition of religious philosophy with the belief that you are an immortal spiritual being and that you are far more capable than you would permit yourself to believe. This then puts Scientology into the field of religion and the realm of the human soul.
"Nothing in Dianetics or Scientology is true for you
Unless you have observed it
And it is true according to your observation.
That is all."
L. Ron Hubbard, Founder
