Additional DescriptionMore Details

Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895-1986) reisde tijdens zijn leven de hele wereld rond om met mensen uit alle continenten de problemen van het leven te bespreken. Daarbij stond hem steeds voor ogen dat geen enkele organisatie of georganiseerde godsdienst de mens tot waarheid kan brengen. In spirituele aangelegenheden bestond er voor hem geen autoriteit, geen leider of goeroe. In plaats daarvan moet ieder mens zijn eigen leraar en leerling zijn. Zijn toespraken zijn verschenen in talloze boeken, en over zijn levensloop zijn een aantal biografieën verschenen. De Australische radiopresentator Ingram Smith raakte in de veertiger jaren betrokken bij het opnemen en uitzenden van Krishnamurti’s toespraken. Jarenlang zou Smith van dichtbij meemaken hoe Krishnamurti omging met de vele zoekers naar waarheid die naar hem toe kwamen. Ingram Smith is verbonden geweest aan de Australische omroeporganisatie ABC en is auteur of redacteur van vele boeken. Hij werd in Australië bekend als producent van het programma Scope (zienswijze).

A Dictionary of Gnosticism

273 pages | Paperback | Quest Books, 2009

An amazing storehouse of information, A Dictionary of Gnosticism, contains nearly 1,700 entries, from Aachiaram, an angel in the Secret Book of John, to the Zostrianos, a third-century Gnostic text that recounts a series of revelations on the successive stages of the soul’s ascent. With an easy-to-read introduction explaining who the Gnostics were and what Gnosticism is, Smith delivers a whirlwind tour through the ancient and diverse history of this captivating movement.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

As editor of The Gnostic magazine and author of several books on apocryphal scriptures, Andrew Phillip Smith draws on his extensive knowledge of Gnosticism to provide a succinct yet thorough compilation for scholars and spiritual seekers alike. Smith not only defines the terminology of the Nag Hammadi library and the ancient Gnostics, but also their successors such as the Manichaeans, Mandaeans and Cathars. His definitions also cover Hermeticism, the apocrypha, medieval heresy, dualism, and the modern Gnostic revival. “Andrew Phillips Smith offers us yet another key opportunity to expand our knowledge of Gnosticism. A fascinating, solidly-researched key resource for students, academics, and practitioners alike “A ‘beacon of Light’ for our time! Highly recommended.”— Dr Karen Ralls, Oxford, author of The Templars and the Grail. Blockbuster films like The Matrix and Stigmata have helped fuel the continued fascination with Gnosticism, a pre-Christian Western religion based on the direct knowledge of the Divine, which itself provides salvation. Although The Matrix conveys complex concepts like archons and dualism with marvelous simplicity, Gnostic texts do anything but. Curious new students of Gnosticism find they are swiftly bombarded with numerous foreign, often un-translated, and barely pronounceable terms like ‘Acinetos’ and ‘Deitharbathas’. Now for the first time, a comprehensive guide to all aspects of Gnosticism and related spirituality is available to the public in a straightforward dictionary. Andrew Phillip Smith was born and grew up in Penarth in south Wales in the United Kingdom and took his degree in computer science at the University College of Wales, Swansea. From 1987, Andrew worked in computing in London, including a two-year stint providing technical support for the publishers Harcourt Brace. From 1997-2007 Andrew lived in Northern California near the Sierra Nevada mountain range, where he began his writing career. In his time he has busked on the streets of London playing a small harp, delivered leaflets, worked as a security guard, as a letterpress printer and as a librarian to a private library. Andrew’s previous titles include The Gnostics: History, Tradition, Scriptures, Influence and several books in Skylight Paths’ annotated and explained series: The Lost Sayings of Jesus, The Gospel of Philip, and Gnostic Writings on the Soul. He now lives in Dublin, Ireland, with his wife Tessa Finn and his son Dylan.

Our Last Adventure – A Commonsense Guide to Death and After

100 Pages | 1985 | Paperback | Theosophical Publishing House, London

In a charming, chatty style, this British author shares his thoughtful insights on death and the life beyond.

From the Prologue:

” There is a journey ahead that none of us can avoid – our last adventure, death and beyond. If you travel abroad, it is wise to take a map and a guide to the country. Most people face death totally unprepared. Some are scared and refuse even to think or talk about it; others are resigned or willing to go when their time comes; very, very few have any clear idea of what lies ahead… In the chapters which follow, I have tried to write a commonsense guide to the next world. “
