Truth, Beauty, and Goodness

81 pages | Paperback | Theosophical Publishing House, 2002

Truth, Beauty, and Goodness are interrelated. While beauty is the garment of truth, goodness is beauty revealed in action. Many philosophers and poets have spoken about the identity of these three aspects of reality, how each one leads to the other. Discovery of truth or beauty is the natural aspiration of every right thinking individual. Clarity and undisturbed serenity are essential requirements for perceiving truth. These qualifications cannot be acquired in the absence of pure and righteous living.

An Adyar book, imported from India.

The World Around Us

620 pages | Hardcover | T.P.H. Adyar, 2009

The World Around Us by Mrs Radha Burnier, international President of the TS, embodies an important aspect of her literary legacy and spans almost thirty years of thoughtful and insightful editorials in the Society’s international journal, The Theosophist, founded by Madame Blavatsky in Bombay in 1879. In it she presents a deep, insightful and objective assessment of the condition of humanity at the present time and shows, with vigour and intellectual clarity, how a parochial and limited mindset prevents humanity from moving forward in its evolutionary journey. Her book is a timely appeal for a wider vision of life and its relationships as well as for compassion for all the creatures that share with us this beautiful earth.

Regeneratie van de Mens

150 blz. | Paperback | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland, 1994

Het onderwerp regeneratie van de mens is erg belangrijk omdat een werkelijk fundamentele verandering in de geschiedenis van de mensheid slechts dan zal kunnen gebeuren wanneer er een revolutionaire verandering in de mens zelf plaatsvindt. Dit boek bevat lezingen en discussies van twee seminars over dit onderwerp.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Theosofen en aspirant-theosofen zijn met elkaar verbonden door een gemeenschappelijk streven naar de regeneratie van de mens. Ze verschillen misschien in hun overtuigingen, interessen of benadering. De leringen van Boeddha, Jezus, Blavatsky, Besant, krishnamurti zijn voor sommigen van hen inspirerend, voor anderen niet. Maar er is een sterke gemeenschappelijke band, namelijk een diepgaande interesse in de vooruitgang en vervolmaking van de mensheid, niet alleen op de materiële en intellectuele niveaus, maar in moreel en spiritueel opzicht. Een theosoof zoekt niet naar wijsheid voor zichzelf. “Hij leeft niet voor zichzelf maar voor de wereld”, en hoe dieper hij toegewijd is aan het ideaal van de regeneratie van de mensheid, des te meer zal hij proberen zichzelf en de wereld te begrijpen, en door te dringen in het geheim van het leven. Zijn doel is de bron te ontdekken van Goedheid en Geluk, die het geboorterecht is van alle levende wezens. Mrs. Radha Burnier, die sinds 1980 Presidente is van de Theosophical Society (Adyar), leidde in juli 1990 twee seminars over het onderwerp van de regeneratie van de mens. Dit boek bevat de tekst van haar lezingen en van de naar aanleiding daarvan onder toehoorders ontstane gesprekken. Van dit boek zijn tot nu toe vertalingen of edities verschenen in Brazilië, Duitsland, India, Italië, Rusland en Spanje.

From the book:

Without watching oneself and learning to live a truly religious and ethical life, it is impossible to reach the deeper spiritual nature. If we believe meditation to be apart from daily living, failure can be predicted right from the beginning. That is what many do. They give a little time to ‘meditation’, repeat formulas to quieten the mind for a while, and then that activity ends, and the daily life goes on a course that is quite different. But meditation is the touching of that deeper source of energy which belongs to the spiritual nature. (page. 48)

The book includes question and answer sessions and chapters on the following subjects: ‘T.S. Work and the Fundamental Change in Man and Society’, ‘The Nature of the Change’, ‘Regeneration and the Objects of the T.S.’, ‘Our Approach to Theosophy’, ‘Individual and Group work for Regeneration’ and ‘The Source of Spiritual Energy’.
