The Scientology Symbol

The Scientology religion is based exclusively upon L. Ron Hubbard's research, writings and recorded lectures — all of which constitute the Scriptures of the religion. These encompass more than 500,000 pages of writings, nearly 3,000 recorded lectures and more than 100 films. He is the only source of the religion, and he has no successor. A fundamental doctrine of the Scientology religion is that spiritual freedom can be attained only if the path outlined in these works is followed without deviation, for it is an intensively researched and workable route.

To comprehend Scientology as a religion, one must look past the parameters one might be familiar with, such as those of the Judeo-Christian tradition, and view the East. For instance, although, like the Judeo-Christian religions, Scientology affirms the existence of a Supreme Being and places the Supreme Being at the apex of its cosmology, like many Eastern religions, salvation in Scientology is attained through personal spiritual enlightenment. This, then, is the essence of Scientology: The Bridge, the auditing and training that takes place every day of the year in every Church of Scientology in the world. The mission of Scientology is, after all, nothing less than the rehabilitation of the human spirit. And, five decades after the Church's birth, it is because of its ability to unerringly attain this age-old goal that men and women from all walks of life and diverse cultures in nations throughout the world continue to reach for the promise of the Scientology faith in ever-increasing numbers.
