Mesillas Yesharim 1 (Introduction)

Background of the Ramchal and the Mesillas Yesharim and the Ramchal's introduction to his work. In his introduction he states that the goal of the work is to teach people things they already know and it is these basics of life that need to be reviewed constantly.

The Ramchal's stated goal is not to prove the existence of Gd, to unlock the secrets of creation; the goal is to get back to basics - what does it mean to be a complete Eved Hashem, to be a pious Jew?
