How Others Have Seen
Mr. Gurdjieff
Part I

Listed in chronological order from circa 1890 until 1924 are all the different ways that others saw and reacted to Gurdjieff.


Judas' 'Betrayal'

Gurdjieff first spoke about the esoteric meaning of Judas' act in St. Petersburg in 1916 and later wrote about it in All & Everything. Now in 2006 comes the discovery of The Gospel of Judas. Said Gurdjieff, "I do not often pray to God. I do not wish to disturb His Endlessness. But when I am drunk I pray to Judas. And I am almost always drunk."
