n a context where the sense of values becomes a societal issue, the Essene tradition proposes a way of life that is articulated around respect for life, because each being is ultimately only a manifestation of God.
The Essene strives to awaken in him the virtues, which are in his vision, the most concrete manifestation of God’s presence. That is why he considers them not to be abstractions, but rather eternal principles.
It is the latter that nourishes life and leads man to find the way to the gift of his mortal life for a higher life. This gift of self for the greater is the profound meaning of man’s life on earth; it is also the meaning of Religion, of sacred worship and of the given word.
