Grail Message

AMONG ALL BOOKS of spiritual content, the work In the Light of Truth: The Grail Message written by Abd-Ru-Shin occupies a truly unique place. It can be said that it gives an explanation of the World, for it offers a complete survey of everything that exists between God and us human beings. The Grail Message sheds new light upon all of life's fundamental questions and guides the earnest seeker to spiritual liberation.

The Grail Message Foundation is a non-profit institution formed to protect and make known the Work of the Author Abd-ru-shin (1875-1941) - most notably his core title, In the Light of Truth - The Grail Message. Initiated in 1951 by the widow of the Author, Maria Bernhardt, the Foundation presents a selection of publications all of which, stem from the original philosophy of The Grail Message and, are concerned with the important spiritual goal of acquiring lasting values and insights for a conscious life.

In his final years, Abd-ru-shin revised and reorganized the content of his Work, In the Light of Truth - The Grail Message, forming a final edition. It was the Author's expressed wish and intent - made further known by his wife, Maria Bernhardt, and daughter, Irmingard Bernhardt - that this final version of his Grail Message be the "Only Authorized Edition" for publishing, printing and distributing. It is therefore the purpose and task, indeed the obligation, of the Grail Message Foundation to solely disseminate this "Only Authorized Edition" of In the Light of Truth - The Grail Message, by Abd-ru-shin. Written originally in German, the author's final edition is translated into 18 languages and available in over 90 countries around the world.

The Grail Message Foundation offers audio book productions of numerous titles, and since 2011 the publisher's list - in it's entirety - is also available in e-book form.

Grail Movement

The name 'Grail Movement' is a collective term for the concerted efforts in many countries by many people to spread the Knowledge of the Grail Message 'In the Light of Truth' written by Abd-ru-shin. This is done in the hope that people come to understand what they are doing here on Earth and what their life's purpose is.

Beginning in the late 1920's, individuals began to gather together who wished to live their lives according to the principles put forth in the Grail Message. Such activity continues to this day, as devoted readers meet to deepen their understanding of the Grail Message, raise public awareness about the book, and to hold Hours of Worship and Festivals. Non-profit publishing companies have also arisen in countries across the globe, as In the Light of Truth: The Grail Message continues to be translated into more and more languages.

Today, the "International Grail Movement" is a collective term for efforts to spread the knowledge of the Grail Message and to realize it in all walks of life. The Movement is not a legal organization, but simply an informal association of adherents of the Grail Message around the world.

It should be noted that Abd-ru-shin himself neither formed nor formally supported any religious or spiritualist organization, and the Grail Message always and only encourages the reader to cultivate his or her own personal convictions and individual nature. In the words of the author:

"The following Word does not bring a new religion, but is intended as the torch to help all serious listeners or readers find the right path, which leads them to the longed-for height."

"I do not speak to churches and political parties, to fraternities, sects and societies, but only in all simplicity to man himself."
