A Parishioner’s Introduction To Scientology
What is religion? Religion is an effort by man to explain life, where life comes from and how it fulfills its purpose.
In a 1949 Chalmers Dictionary it stated there were two kinds of religion. The first is the Revealed Religion, revealed from a higher source through someone who then revealed it to others, such as by a messiah, prophet, and so on.
The second type of religion was said to be a Natural Religion. This is where man works out what life is, what are the laws that govern life, and how the knowledge of those laws help him.
Of course, the original source of where these two types of religion source from, may well be the same. It is how they come to people – how the knowledge from that source gets to people, that is the difference.
Scientology then could be said to be a Natural Religion, as are many eastern religions. Scientology is the only major Natural Religion to emerge from the West. Its nearest cousin, per its founder, L. Ron Hubbard, could be Buddhism. And its most distant roots could be looked upon as stemming from the Dharma.
The word Scientology literally means “the study of truth.” It comes from the Latin word “scio” meaning “knowing” in the fullest sense of the word. And the Greek word “logos,” meaning “study of.” Scientology is the study and handling what is true of the spirit in relationship to itself, others, and all of life. For more, please follow….

Scientology was a word coined by L. Ron Hubbard in 1932. At that time he had returned from adventuring in Asia, visiting temples. But back in the USA he was trying to work out how the mind worked. This gave rise to the subject he called Dianetics, meaning through mind. Follow the link for more information. And there were several books written on the subject, with the ground buster New York Times best-selling book Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health. There are also more Dianetics books here.
