Why the name of this Gnostic Institute has the word Quetzalcoatl?

Answers from the books of Samael Aun Weor


Obviously, Quetzalcoatl shines in the ineffable cosmos because he is the Logos, a Multiple Perfect Unity.

Quetzalcoatl is also Mithra and Hermes Trismegistus, the three times great God Ibis of Thoth. Quetzalcoatl is indeed the Spiritual Sun. Quetzalcoatl is the feathered serpent, the mystic serpent of the Orphic mysteries, the mysteries of Egypt, the mysteries of the Kabirim, the mysteries of the glorious, ancient, and archaic Mexico.

So, Quetzalcoatl is not a mere mythological personage, as the learned ignoramuses suppose, no!  Quetzalcoatl is the same cosmic principle that put the Universe into existence; Quetzalcoatl is the great Word.  Quetzalcoatl is the Word of John; this is why John rightly stated:  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Quetzalcoatl is that same Word, the enchanted Word. So before the Universe came into existence, Quetzalcoatl already existed. Quetzalcoatl is the feathered serpent that was writhing within the cosmic dust in the Omeyocan, when life was hardly dawning in this solar system.  Therefore, Quetzalcoatl is in itself the same Platonic Logos, the Hebraic Chrestos, and the Hindustani Vishnu.

Indeed, those who do not know Hermetic Wisdom, those who have never performed a profound study of cosmogenesis, those who have never studied Gnostic anthropology, those who believe that they know so much, when indeed, they ignore the religious wisdom of archaic times, all of them think that Quetzalcoatl is a myth, an idol, and even look at Quetzalcoatl with disdain.
  The moment in which we must pass through a great revolution of principles has arrived.  The moment in which we must clearly understand that Quetzalcoatl is showing us what must be done has arrived.  Indeed, if we want an extraordinary prototype in order to transform ourselves, then we have Quetzalcoatl!

  Quetzalcoatl as Logos is what is, what has always been and what will always be. Quetzalcoatl is the life that palpitates in every atom as it palpitates in every sun. Quetzalcoatl is the Word.
