In 1952, American author, L. Ron Hubbard founded the Scientology religion.
The first Church of Scientology was established by several of Mr. Hubbard’s
students in February of 1954. The main emphasis is on ‘clearing’ a person of
‘engrams’ (negative perceptions in the subconscious mind) by a pastoral
counseling process called “Dianetics” (a word meaning “through the soul”).
Fundamentally, the goal of Scientology is to empower an individual to experience
a greater understanding of life and to improve himself and the world in which he
lives. There are many laws, axioms and techniques that the Scientologist applies
to his day-to-day living to achieve this goal. Scientologists believe that truth
is a subjective experience, a voyage of self-discovery. Scientology claims to
draw wisdom from all the great religions of this world, although its closest
spiritual “cousin” is Buddhism.
