|Ennea is Greek for "nine" and
gramma means "figure". This symbol, of very
ancient origin, represents the universe in its different manifestations.
The circle represents the Absolute, the triangle the law
of three, and the third figure the law of seven, the law
of the octave. The enneagram is also a symbol which represents
a certain vision of life and the world, forming part of a spiritual
teaching that has taken on different forms over the course of
the centuries, always adapting itself to the current epoch.
This teaching is called the Fourth Way.
In ordinary life and without contact with a living Master, the
enneagram is taught all over the world as a psychological approach
to man, offering a limited aid in a person's process of evolution.
