Carl Jung: The Red Book


Carl Jung; The Red Book and AdvaitaBeneath the following inscription from The Red Book is a link to an introductory video and complete 200MB download of the original text and art of The Red Book.

On the back of the painting Untitled work, 1917, within The Red Book, Liber Novus, are inscribed the following lines ( pp 320-1):

"The Cabiri:

We hauled things up, we built. We placed stone upon stone. Now, you stand upon solid ground...We forged a flashing sword for you, with which you can cut the knot that entangles you...We also place before you the devilish, skillfully twined knot that locks and seals you. Strike, only sharpness will cut through it...Do not the red book carl junghesitate. We need destruction since we ourselves are the entanglement. He who wishes to conquer new land brings down the bridges behind him. Let us not exist anymore. We are the thousand canals in which everything flows back into it's origin."


Should this small quote intrigue you, trust that the complete work is equally enthralling. Available from W. W. Norton and Company. A free full color copy of Carl Jung's The Red Book, including the complete English translation by Shamdasani is available by clicking here.
