$360,000 for Salvation?!?!?
The path of Salvation, to the followers of L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology/Dianetics, consists of one thing: Achieving OT8.
What OT8 is exactly is the subject of another pamphlet, but mainly it consists of taking courses, and being audited. After a person achieves OT8, that person will acquire superhuman powers, according to Hubbard's teachings.
The purpose of auditing is to rid oneself of engrams and body thetans, which, according to the teachings of Hubbard, are responsible for all the ills of mankind. To be audited properly, you need an E-Meter. The E-Meter is not a complicated device; if you have internet access, you will find a wealth of information about the E-Meter, including the plans for building your own very affordably, at:
