Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov
Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov (1900 - 1986) was a Bulgarian philosopher, pedagogue, alchemist, mystic, magus and astrologer. A leading 20th-century teacher of Western Esotericism in Europe, he was a disciple of the universal spiritual Master Peter Deunov (Beinsa Douno), the founder of the Universal White Brotherhood.
Aivanhov’s philosophy teaches that everybody, regardless of race, religion, social position, intellectual ability or material means, is able to take part in the realization of a new period of brotherhood and peace on earth. This happens through the individual's personal transformation: growth in perfection and in harmony with the divine world. Whatever the topic, he invariably focuses on how one can better conduct life on earth. Aivanhov taught that to achieve a better life, one must have a high ideal: "... if you have a High Ideal, such as the bringing of the Kingdom of God on earth, you obtain everything you wished for, you taste plenitude."
