All told, L. Ron Hubbard’s works on Dianetics and Scientology comprise the largest cohesive statement on the human mind and spirit—more than 10,000 writings and 3,000 recorded lectures. Contained therein are answers to life’s most profound mysteries: the enigma of existence, the riddle of death, the realization of states not even described in earlier literature. Also from these works come Scientology technologies for raising children, repairing families, educating, organizing and providing relief in times of illness and suffering.
And while L. Ron Hubbard’s decades of work in the development and codification of Dianetics and Scientology comprises thousands of writings and lectures, his first major work on the subject—Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health—continues to garner accolades even decades after its original publication.
Mr. Hubbard’s writings and philosophy also reach deep into another hub of Latin America, with Mexico’s National Association of Journalists bestowing the Sol de Oro Award upon L. Ron Hubbard in “recognition of talent and artistic merit,” proclaiming Dianetics as “the mental science of the future.”
Yet when speaking of the international scope of Mr. Hubbard’s work, there is also all he has done to bring real answers to cultures throughout Europe and Central Asia.
