L. Ron Hubbard


The L. Ron Hubbard Life Exhibition, which opened in Hollywood in 1991, features multimedia displays on the works of L. Ron Hubbard, audiovisual presentations on the scope of his discoveries, and artifacts from his early years of exploration, writing and research. It is open daily to the public.

Today, those materials are recorded in the tens of millions of words on the subject of the human spirit which comprise Dianetics and Scientology philosophy. The over 25 million words of his lectures – just those that are on tape – are enough to fill over 100 volumes of text.

In fact, it may well be that L. Ron Hubbard’s works include more literature, recorded research and materials than any other single subject of philosophy, the spirit or religion. All of these materials are available to anyone who desires an improvement in his life. Well over 120 million of his books are in circulation today.

Having fully completed his research and seen its broad application expand to six continents and over 60 countries, improving the lives of millions of people, L. Ron Hubbard departed this life on January 24, 1986. Instead of an end, however, it marked the beginning of an unprecedented expansion of the religion of Scientology around the world, as more and more people continue to benefit from his technologies.
