Samael Aun Weor (Hebrew: ???? ??? ????) (March 6, 1917 – December 24, 1977), born Víctor Manuel Gómez Rodríguez, was a spiritual teacher and author of over sixty books of esoteric spirituality.
He taught and formed groups under the banner of 'Universal Gnosticism', or simply gnosis.
Samael Aun Weor referred to his teachings as 'The Doctrine of Synthesis', which not only emphasizes the existence of the perennial philosophy, but that its highest teleological function is the accomplishment of 'Christification' and 'Final Liberation.'
