International Biogenic Society
founded by Professor Edmond Bordeaux Szekely & Romain Rolland,1928
In 1923 Edmond Szekely was chosen to study in the Vatican and, after finding 25 miles of parchments and manuscripts then visited the Benedictine Monastery at Monte Cassino and completed the Essene Gospel of Peace. The Society was formed to encourage members to study a biogenic way of living, individually and in groups, and share the teachings with others. Professor Szekely became a prolific author of over 80 books. His spiritual writings include ‘The Essene Jesus and Sermon on the Mount’, ‘The Living Buddha’, ‘The Zend Avesta of Zarathrustra’, ‘Search for the Ageless Vols. 1, 2 & 3’.
- Credo -
by Edmund Szekely & Romain Rolland, composed in Paris, 1928
We believe that our most precious possession is Life.
We believe we shall mobilise all the forces of Life against the forces of death.
We believe that mutual understanding leads toward mutual cooperation; that mutual cooperation leads toward Peace; and that Peace is the only way of survival for mankind.
We believe that we shall preserve instead of waste our natural resources, which are the heritage of our children.
We believe that we shall avoid the pollution of our air, water, and soil the basic preconditions for Life.
We believe we shall preserve the vegetation of our planet: the humble grass which came fifty million years ago, and the majestic trees which came twenty million years ago, to prepare our planet for mankind.
We believe we shall eat only fresh, natural, pure, whole foods, without chemicals and artificial processing.
We believe we shall live a simple, natural, creative life, absorbing all the sources of energy, harmony and knowledge, in and around us.
We believe that the improvement of life and mankind on our planet must start with individual efforts, as the whole depends on the atoms composing it.
We believe in the Fatherhood of God, the Motherhood of Nature, and the Brotherhood of Man.
