Pythagoras

Pythagoras lived on the Earth about 570-500 B.C. He was born on the island of Samos in the Aegean Sea. His birth was predicted. Through a prophet God told the parents about the birth of a boy who would grow and become glorious thanks to his wisdom, beauty, and great deeds.

From childhood Pythagoras displayed interest and abilities in philosophy and other sciences. He studied medicine, biology, astronomy, and mathematics, learning from the famous scholars of that time. He learned also music and painting. Then He continued His religious education in Egypt, where He was initiated in priesthood. Then He went to Persia where He continued studying mystical knowledge.

In the town of Croton in southern Italy, He founded a philosophical religious brotherhood which became widespread with time.

The purpose of the Pythagorean brotherhood was the morality renovation of society and purification of religious views, and also imparting the confidential methods of spiritual development to deserving students. The brotherhood was a monastic community consisting of both men and women, who regarded Pythagoras as an Incarnation of God. The activity of that great School ended due to massacre perpetrated by primitive people…

He is known as a Greek philosopher and mathematician. He was a strict vegetarian.

Pythagoras composed works on philosophy, mathematics, astronomy, and music. In particular, He knew about the sphericity of the Earth and that inside it there is the Central Fire. He also taught about the immortality of souls and their gradual development in a series of incarnations.
