Esoteric Writings of T. Subba Row

By Tallapragada Subba Row (1856 – 1890).

575 Pages |First edition 1951, 1st to 3rd reprints 1972 – 1994, 2nd edition 2002 | Softcover | The Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170593646.

This collection of articles on varied and unusual subjects by a briljant young Brahman scholar, lawyer, mystic and occultist, is a mine of information. During the brief years before his death in 1890, author Swami T. Subba Row not only wrote these articles, but also gave a series of lectures at the annual Convention of the Theosophical Society, later published as Philosophy of the Bhagavad-Gītā. In his early years, Subba Row did not show any exceptional signs of mystical knowledge, but in his twenties knowledge welled up from within. ‘It was as though a storehouse of occult experience, long forgotten, had been suddenly opened to him’.

The book will prove to be an asset for students of mystical philosophy and the reader will find fascinating information about for instance:

  • The twelve signs of the zodiac
  • The age of Lord Buddha’s death
  • Nadigrantham-s
  • Hatha yoga
  • The mystic significance of Indian places of pilgrimage
  • And many other occult subjects . . .

About the author:

T Subba Row was an outstanding figure of the Theosophical Society in its early years in India. Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891) had originally planned the collaboration of Subba Row with her in the production of The Secret Doctrine, but this plan did not fructify. Colonel Henry Steel Olcott (1832 – 1907) has paid the tribute to Subba Row, that ‘there was none equal to him in bright genius for grasping the spirit of Ancient Wisdom’. Subba Row’s philosophy was essentially Vedāntic, although he was also greatly stimulated by the Theosophy of Madame Blavatsky. His meeting with her also resulted in his obtaining conscious touch with his Master.

Studies in de Bhagavad Gītā

Door Tallapragada Subba Row (1856 – 1890), vertaald door Margreet  Meijer-Kouwe met een historisch overzicht door Henk J. Spierenburg.

200 Bladzijden | 1999, Oorspronkelijk verschenen in The Theosophist februari 1886 / juli 1887, Adyar | Hardcover | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland | ISBN: 9061750784.

English original: The Philosophy of the Bhagavad Gītā – ‘Four Lectures delivered at the 11th Annual Convention of the Theosophical Society, held at Adyar on December 27-30, 1886’ | Published in 1921 by The Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN unknown.

Naast een Nederlandse vertaling van vijf lezingen van Subba Row over de Bhagavad Gītā, bevat dit boek een historische beschrijving van zijn leven, voetnoten, bijlagen, een bibliografie, een woordenlijst en een index door Henk Spierenburg.

Al vroeg werd duidelijk dat Subba Row beschikte over meer dan een normaal verstand. Hij studeerde onder andere rechten en geologie en blonk in beide vakken uit. Hoewel hij nimmer aan een universiteit Sanskriet studeerde, had hij een grote kennis van die taal en de Sanskriet literatuur. Wie dit boekje leest, kan niets anders dan doen dan tot dezelfde conclusie komen. Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891), de belangrijkste stichtster van De Theosofische Vereniging, schreef na zijn overlijden in 1890 – net 1 jaar voor haar eigen overlijden – dat India een van haar grootste geleerden had verloren.

Afkomstig van bladzijde 5:

” Men kan de Bhagavad Gītā zien als de woorden, die een goeroe spreekt tot een chela, die vastbesloten is afstand te doen van alle wereldse begeerten en aspiraties, maar die toch een zekere moedeloosheid voelt, welke veroorzaakt wordt door de schijnbare leegte van zijn bestaan. Dit boek omvat 18 hoofdstukken, die alle nauw met elkaar in verband staan. Ieder hoofdstuk beschrijft een bepaald aspect van het menselijk leven. De studerende moet dit in gedachten houden, wanneer hij/zij een boek leest en hij/zij moet trachten die overeenstemmingen erin op te sporen. ”

T. Subba Row Collected Writings Vol. II

Compiled and annotated by Henk J. Spierenburg.

654 Pages | Published in 2001 | Softcover | Point Loma Publications, San Diego | ISBN: 1889598313.

This second Volume of the T. Subba Row Collected Writings covers such subjects as esoteric teachings on rays, chakras and women adepts, as well as a wide range of subjects including Gautama Buddha, the Human Monad, Devachan and Subba Row’s insightful commentary on the Bhagavad Gītā. Within these pages the reader can find material for deeper spiritual and intellectual reflection in harmony with the root ideas of the Theosophical Renaissance initiated by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky in 1875. Subba Row’s genius lent high energy and spiritual insight in this impetus and these two Volumes now add significantly to the Wisdom treasure of the already published Volumes of Blavatsky Reference Books compiled by Henk J. Spierenburg.

From Chapter – ‘The Idyll of the White Lotus by T. Subba Row’ (p. 397):

” The interesting story published under the title above mentioned had already attracted considerable attention. It is instructive in more ways than one. It truly depicts the Egyptian faith and the Egyptian priesthood, when their religion had already begun to lose its purity and degenerate into a system of Tantric worship contaminated and defiled by black magic, unscrupulously used for selfish and immoral purposes. It is probably also a true story. Sensa is represented to be the last great hierophant of Egypt. Just as a tree leaves its seed to develop into a similar tree, even if it should perish completely, so does every great religion seem to leave its life and energy in one or more great Adepts destined to preserve its Wisdom and revive its growth at some future time when the cycle of evolution tends in the course of its revolution, to bring about the desired result. The grand old religion of Chemi is destined to reappear on this planet in a higher and nobler form when the time arrives, and there is nothing unreasonable in the supposition that the Sensa of our story is probably now a very high Adept, who is waiting to carry out the commands of the Lady of the White Lotus. Apart from these speculations, however, the story in question has a very noble lesson to teach. In its allegorical aspect it describes the trials and the difficulties of a neophyte. “

An Enduring Philosopher (T. Subba Row) – A Sequel to A Lonely Disciple

By N.C. Ramanujachary.

61 Pages | First limited edition 1995 | Softcover | Prapti Books, Madras, India | No ISBN.

T. Subba Row, an outstanding figure in the early days of the Theosophical Society after the Founders, Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891) and Colonel Henry Steel Olcott (1832 – 1917) came to India, was highly respected for his wide-ranging erudition and knowledge of esoteric philosophy and practice. He had many things to reveal on Occult Science and Philosophy. This slim volume, second in the series, includes seven essays vividly written.

From page VI:

” . . . You are wrong in distrusting Subba Row’s writings. He does not write willingly, to be sure, but he will never make a false statement. – Ten to one – it will never receive the attention it deserves – Why? Simply, because his statements contain sober facts, and that what your prefer generally is fiction so long as the latter dovetails with, and answers preconceived theories. ”

Subba Row – A Lonely Disciple

By N.C. Ramanujachary.

59 Pages | First edition 1993 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170592151.

T. Subba Row, an outstanding figure in the early days of the Theosophical Society after the Founders, Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891) and Colonel Henry Steel Olcott (1832 – 1917) came to India, was highly respected for his wide-ranging erudition and knowledge of esoteric philosophy and practice. Such, he played an important role during the formative years of the Society. His speeches and writings contained in two publications, The Philosophy of the Bhagavad Gītā and Esoteric Writings, strike the reader even today by their range and depth.

N.C. Ramanujachary born in 1935 at Vijayawada in Andhra Pradesh, India, is a long-standing member of the Theosophical Society. A member of the Authors Guild of India, he is well known as short-story writer in Telugu, with the nom de plume SRIVIRINCHI.

From page 42:

” Madame Blavatsky had to face the accusation, that ‘Isis Unveiled’ was written with the help of Subba Row. She countered this in a letter dated January 9 1886:

I made Subba Row’s acquaintance on the day I first arrived to Madras, in 1882. Saw him for a week and then when we left Bombay for Madras to live, in January 1883, had exchanged with him a few letters till then. How could I write ‘Isis’ with his help, I in New York, he at Madras and perfect strangers to each other? “
