DA is a Cyprus based non-profit organization, created with the sole purpose of “Being Useful” towards the promulgation of the Gnosis that can change our life’s orientation at a time when mankind needs it. This Gnosis existed since Socratic times in Europe and before that in Egypt and the East. Didaskalia Alexandrias:
A water spring by the roadside, does not exist to quench our thirst, but if we want we may take a drink…
In either case, if we like, we can seek the source.
Helping youth endowed with emotive faculties, to keep them from shying away and atrophying, in our modern world, which gives precedence to the intellectual and instinctive faculties of the psyche. This by means of a cultural program aimed at the heart. Effected, positively with the appreciation of beauty in art, and the understanding of spiritual things through philosophy, and negatively by way of sym-pathos; ignited by the global necessity for altruism and fraternity, in an era of pandemics with their lockdowns, mass migrations, unemployment, environmental dangers, the ever-present threat of war, etc…
To spread, throughout the eastern Mediterranean region, by way of independent non-profit group projects, the elementary principles of a unifying Knowledge Gnosis, capable of resolving our numerous apparent contradictions, with its grounded Traditional understanding of the human being, as he is and as he can in certain conditions become. Hoping to rouse in some the passion to seek more in depth Traditional teachings, adapted to their specific psyches.
Heliopolis Youth Culture
Modern education is necessary for refining our Intellect and Cultural education for refining our Heart.
Alongside developing culture through the programs of Heliopolis Youth Culture HYC, Didaskalia Alexandrias promised to provide easy access for the Greek reader of the most profound Christian Philosophy.
Gnosis is a book written sixty years ago by an adept of the great Christian teachers such as Clement of Alexandria and the Fathers of the Philokalia. Moreover it is written in a modern way making it more easily accessible to our modern mentality. And it is written by order and under the control of the Great Esoteric Brotherhood as found in the Holy Mountain. In this way it does not provide fragments, but a complete Teaching.
The author, Boris Mouravieff, was respected and welcomed by Archbishop Makarios as well as the Hellenic autocephalic Church, as is shown in the correspondence between them, which we have published alongside the book.
It is the hope of Didaskalia Alexandrias that the most reverend, profound and Inspired teachers of the Church of Cyprus, will use this book to rebuild the gap that has come between the young and their love for their excellent Religion.
It is only by getting clear and totally scientific answers to questions such as the real meaning of our existence, of the myth of Adam and Eve and other myths, of the seven Sacraments, of the psychic structure of the human being, of the triple structure of man (body, soul and Spirit), of the authentic meaning of Salvation, etc…, that the intelligent and promising youth of Cyprus can grow and develop their full potentials alongside their secular education, and hopefully become the morning stars of the Mediterranean that will shine brightly from the East, overcoming the great difficulties facing their generations today and tomorrow.
