No more fitting statement typifies L. Ron Hubbard than his simple declaration, “I like to help others and count it as my greatest pleasure in life to see a person free himself of the shadows which darken his days.”
In testament to that, the materials of Dianetics and Scientology comprise the largest body of information ever assembled on the mind, spirit and life, rigorously refined and codified by L. Ron Hubbard through five decades of research, investigation and development. The results of that work are contained in hundreds of books and more than 3,000 recorded lectures.
These books and lectures form the foundation upon which the Scientology Bridge to Freedom is built. In many instances, Mr. Hubbard gave a series of lectures immediately following the release of a new book to provide further explanation and insight into these milestones.
And while L. Ron Hubbard’s books contain the summaries of breakthroughs and conclusions as they appeared in the developmental research track, his lectures provide the running day-to-day record of research and explain the thoughts, conclusions, tests and demonstrations that lay along that route. In that regard, they are the complete record of the entire research track, providing not only the most important breakthroughs in Dianetics and Scientology, but the why and how he arrived at them.
Yet the greatest testament to L. Ron Hubbard are the miracles of his technology, and the millions of friends who carry forth that technology into eternity. Both continue to grow with each passing day.
