Mahābhārata – The Story of Great War

305 pages | 7th Reprint, 2017 | Soft cover | The Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar 

Mahābhārata is ‘one of the greatest books in the world‘ says Annie Besant (1847 – 1933), eminent scholar of Hinduïsm as well as Comparative Religion, and International President of the Theosophical Society (1907 – 1933), in the introduction to this book. It is the story of the Aryan race in India some 5.000 years ago and includes an account of the epic war between the Pandavas and Kauravas.

This book is based on notes of lectures delivered by Besant at the Central Hindu College Beneras (now Varanasi) in the first decade of this century. She describes the Mahābhārata as a great teacher of Ethics and Philosophy, an it is also history. The original Sanskrit verse, she says, ‘is the greatest poem in the world’.

Dharma

78 pages | 6th Edition, 2011 | Paperback | The Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar

´Dharma´ is a term, which has now become part of the world vocabulary, but very few know the range and depth of its meaning. Annie Besant (1847 / 1933), having studied the great discourse on dharma of Bhisma in the Mahābhārata, introduces this complex and deep subject to the lay reader. Morality or dharma is subtle, varying from individual to individual, for it is the law by which inner nature unfolds in each one from his or her particular stage of evolution. This is a subject of great relevance to all individuals and nations of the world, treated in this book with the innate Wisdom and intuitive insight of the author.

325 pages | 2017 | Soft cover | Theosophical Publishing House, London

Social and political reformer, women’s rights activist, prolific writer and orator extraordinaire, Annie Besant (1847 – 1933) was one of the best-known opinion-formers in late 19th-century- and early 20th century Britain and beyond. As president of the Theosophical Society from 1907 until her death, she made a major contribution to the occult and spiritual revival of the time.

In this new biography by Dr. Muriel Pécastaing-Boissière – senior lecturer in British civilization (Victorian Studies) at Sorbonne University, Paris –  links are explored between Besant’s freethinking socialism, feminism, criticism of the Empire and conversion to Theosophy.

The Ancient Wisdom – An Outline of Theosophical Teachings

440 pages | Second edition, 2015 | Soft cover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar

The essence of Theosophical teachings, ‘sufficiently plain to serve the elementary student and sufficiently full to lay a sound foundation for further knowledge‘, is how Annie Besant (1847 – 1933) describes this work. It is an introduction to that ‘Universal Wisdom’, which has been called Theosophy, Brahmā vidyā, the Perennial Philosophy and so on, and provides an all-embracing religion and ethic, as well as a philosophy that is conducive to right understanding and right living.

Even those who have a little knowledge of the Ancient Wisdom can experience the illumination, peace, joy and strength it brings into one’s life. For more than one century, Annie Besant’s exposition has brought light to thousands of seekers.

Basic Theosophy – The Living Wisdom

571 Pages | First Edition (1981), Fifth Reprint, 2015 | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar.

Today there is a growing dissatisfaction with the sterile mechanical framework that has come to dominate our lives. In ‘Basic Theosophy’; The Living Wisdom, Geoffrey Hodson, returns to us what we unconsciously gave up when we chose to pursue a culture of material production. The philosophy is not a dreamy world-negating doctrine but rather affirms the divinity of the universe, the immortality of the Soul of man and the ultimate unity of creation with the absolute. This is the ageless wisdom told of in the Veda-s, Purana-s and Upanishad-s. It is a message about reality, about science, art, philosophy, psychology, cosmology, medicine and mathematics forming integrated elements in a science of life. Hodson’s clairvoyance allowed him to attain an intimate understanding of the universality of being, knowledge and joy and to achieve a deep and genuine sympathy with creation. He has synthesized a vast body of material with an impressive clarity that makes this text ideal for those setting out on their spiritual journey.

Man’s Supersensory and Spiritual Powers

193 Pages | First Edition, 7th Reprint 2005 | Paperback | The Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar

Man undoubtedly possesses, in however rudimentary a form, certain supersensory powers. Their unfoldment can be hastened through Raja Yoga as the chief means. Included in this volume are talks by the author broadcast over the air in Australia. They are a guide to managing human life and developing the character needed for such unfoldment. However it is not the development of psychic powers that is man’s supreme goal, but ‘Self-realization’. Psychic powers are only by-products in the spiritual process of seeking ‘Realization’ and are not ends in themselves . . .

The Wisdom of the Upanishad-s

101 pages | First edition, 9th reprint (2007) | Paperback | Four lectures ath the 31st anniversary Convention of the Theosophical Society at Adyar, December 1906 | The Theosophical Publishing House Adyar

From the foreword:

” Little need be said in sending out this booklet to tge world. It is an attempt, a very humble attempt, to draw a few drops from the ancient wells of Aryan wisdom, and to offer them to quench the thirst of weary Souls, traveling through the desert of, seeking for Truth. The Upanishad-s are unique in the sacred literature of the world. They stand alone a beacon-lights on a mountain-peak, showing how high man may climb, how much of the Light of the Self may shine out through the vessel of clay, how truly God may speak through man. To speak on them, to write on them, seems presumption for such a one as myself, and yet it may be that help will come to some of my brethren even in this way” . . .

The Power of Thought – A 21st Century Adaptation of Annie Besant’s Classic Work ‘Thought Power’

172 p. | 2001 Edition, 1903 | Paperback | Quest Books

Theosophist Annie Besant (1847 – 1933) drew from the ancient wisdom of the East to explore the deep recesses of the mind. The original edition was published in 1903 and has been in print ever since. Now leading contemporary Theosophists John Algeo and Shirley J. Nicholson have painstakingly revised the text to free its timeless truths from the time-bound language of the early 20th century and make it more accessible to today’s readers.

The result is a clear discussion of subjects of increasingly high interest: concentration, memory, consciousness, telepathy, sleep and dreams, cultivation of the will, and access to your ‘higher self’.

ISBN: 9789061750925
Additional DescriptionMore Details

1. Zoek Naar de Weg – studies in “Licht op het Pad” (Rohit Mehta) Licht op het Pad door Mabel Collins wordt wel “een der kostbaarste juwelen van de moderne theosofie” genoemd. Het bestaat uit dertig aforismen die geestelijke lering van diepe betekenis bevatten. Ze zijn integraal in dit boekje opgenomen dat is ontstaan uit een serie toespraken door Rohit Mehta, gehouden in Benares in het hoofdkwartier van de Indiase afdeling van de Theosophical Society. 2. De Scheppende Stilte – overpeinzingen over “De Stem van de Stilte” (Rohit Mehta) Rohit Mehta heeft in deze overpeinzingen over het bekende werk van H.P. Blavatsky De Stem van de Stilte, getracht een verklaring te geven van een van de merkwaardigste boeken die ooit over het geestelijk leven zijn geschreven. Blavatsky geeft daarin de mystieke leer van de Boeddha en de leer van de vedanta weer. Beide zijn nagenoeg identieke wijsgerige stelsels. Zo noemt zij vedanta vergeestelijkt boeddhisme en boeddhisme radicaal vedantisme. 3. Praktische Mystiek – voor gewone mensen (Evelyn Underhill) Dit bekende boekje, geschreven in Londen in 1914, gaat onder meer in op de vraag wat mystiek is. Het geeft een beschouwing over de wereld van de Werkelijkheid en behandelt onderwerpen als de voorbereiding van de mysticus, liefde en wilskracht, meditatie en bezinning, en de vernieuwing van het bewustzijn. “Wat is Mystiek?”, blijven velen zich afvragen na lezingen, preken en anderszins te hebben aangehoord: kunnen wij westerlingen dat bevatten en er mee leven? Evelyn Underhill geeft “een” definitie: “Mystiek is de kunst van het éénworden met de Werkelijkheid. Een mysticus is iemand, die deze éénwording in meer of mindere mate heeft bereikt, of althans iemand, die streeft naar en gelooft in zulk een éénwording.” Dit boekje heeft in onze hedendaagse maatschappij nog niets aan actualiteit verloren. 4. Meditatie – een praktische studie met oefeningen (Adelaide Gardner) Dit boekje geeft een eenvoudige doch zeer praktische handleiding in meditatie voor alle leeftijden. Per hoofdstuk zijn oefeningen opgenomen voor individuele en groepsmeditatie. De volgende onderwerpen komen onder meer aan de orde: – het doel van meditatie – de verschillende methoden – concentratie en contemplatie – hindernissen en hulpmiddelen – groepsmeditatie – het helpen van anderen door gedachten – aanbevolen literatuur voor verdere studie 5. De Zeven Mensentypen (Geoffrey Hodson) “Het leven gelijkt enigermate op een geweven tapijt: aan de onderzijde ziet men een wirwar van kleuren, knopen en draden; een patroon kan men echter niet ontdekken. Zodra de bovenzijde wordt bekeken ziet men de bedoeling van het weefsel en, hòe alles – juist in die volgorde – werd gerangschikt.” Zo is het ook met de schijnbare wanorde in de levens van mensen en volkeren. Het menselijk verstand, dat begrensd is, kan de Waarheid niet ten volle bevatten, die onbegrensd is. Het begripsvermogen van de mens neemt toe, indien men de aspecten van het leven vanuit verschillende gezichtshoeken gaat aanschouwen. Vergelijk de benadering b.v. van een berg vanuit verschillende standpunten: de berg blijft ongewijzigd, echter de (Uw) aanblik is steeds anders. Ten slotte leert U die berg kennen en zo is het ook met het zoeken naar Waarheid.

De Mens, God en het Universum

508 blz., Index, Leeslint | Gebonden/Hardcover, met goud opdruk en stofomslag | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland, 2015

Is de mens, zoals sommigen stellen, een toevallige indringer in een in essentie vijandige wereld? Is hij tot zelfvernietiging voorbestemd door zijn eigen onbeteugelde begeerten en gewelddadigheid? Of schuilt zijn bestemming in het tot bloei brengen van de zaden van de ultieme Werkelijkheid die in de geheime plekken van zijn eigen wezen verborgen ligt en die hij in zichzelf moet ontdekken en koesteren? In dit diepzinnige en inspirerende boek neemt een wetenschapper en filosoof en specialist op het gebied van yoga een beslissend standpunt in.

auteur: Taimni, I.K.
ISBN: 9789061750987
Additional DescriptionMore Details

De diepste interesse van de denkende mens moet ongetwijfeld liggen in de aard van, en de relatie tussen de drie grote factoren die in de titel van dit boek worden genoemd: de mens, zijn oorsprong, zijn reden van bestaan en zijn bestemming; God, niet als een op een mens gelijkende godheid, maar als de bron van al het leven en elk wezen; en het universum, de omgeving waarin het verbazingwekkende schouwspel van de evolutie – zowel de goddelijke als de menselijke – wordt opgevoerd. Ondanks de verheven reikwijdte van de ideeën die in dit boek worden aangeboden, zijn ze eenvoudig te begrijpen door hun helderheid van presentatie en door de vele diagrammen en tabellen waarmee zij worden toegelicht. De verhelderende synthese van oosterse en westerse benaderingswijzen zou het boek de moeite waard moeten maken voor nadenkende mensen over de gehele wereld.

Dr. I.K. Taimni (1898-1978) was vele jaren professor in de scheikunde aan de Universiteit van Allahabad in India. Hij begeleidde toegepast onderzoek en heeft vele artikelen geschreven voor technische tijdschriften in verscheidene landen. Naast zijn professionele werk heeft hij het Kaśmir Śaivisme diepgaand bestudeerd en dit laatste heeft, gecombineerd met zijn grote kennis van de theosofie, vorm gekregen in dit boek. Hij was onderscheiden met de Subba Row Gouden Medaille voor zijn bijdragen aan de theosofische literatuur. Zijn boeken hebben vele herdrukken gezien en zijn vertaald in verscheidene talen.

Van I.K. Taimni verschenen ook: De Yoga-Sūtra’s van Patañjali; Een weg tot zelfontdekking; Het geheim van Zelf-realisatie; Zelf-realisatie door liefde; De Śiva-Sūtra.

De Stem van de Stilte – De Wereld achter het Werk

48 blz. | Brochure | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland, 2013

De schrijver van deze brochure, Ingmar de Boer, neemt ons mee in de denkwereld van De Stem van de Stilte van H.P. Blavatsky (HPB), waarin we allereerst het voorwoord van de Stem bekijken, in een poging daaruit zo goed mogelijk een beeld te construeren van de oorsprong van de aforismen, zoals HPB die zelf schetst. We lopen door de tekst van het werk en we gaan eerst de herkomst na van alle technische termen. Daarna proberen we verder aan de hand van deze analyse een concreet idee te formuleren omtrent de oorsprong van De Stem van de Stilte.

auteur: Boer, I. de
ISBN: 9789061750932
Additional DescriptionMore Details

H.P. Blavatsky’s De Stem van de Stilte is een werk waarin krachtig geformuleerde aanwijzingen staan voor de reiziger op het pad naar wijsheid. Het heeft een bijzondere poëtische kwaliteit. De boeken en artikelen die over de Stem zijn geschreven sinds zijn verschijnen, handelen vaak vooral over de uitleg van de inhoud van het boek. Soms worden daarbij de achtergronden van het werk wat vergeten, waardoor de interpretaties oppervlakkig of subjectief van karakter blijven. Verder zijn in de loop van de tijd de wetenschappelijke opvattingen op het gebied waar de Stem naar verwijst zodanig voortgeschreden, dat het voor de lezer steeds moeilijker wordt het werk in zijn context te zien en door te dringen tot de werkelijke betekenis. Veel van de oosterse termen die in de Stem worden gebruikt zijn niet gemakkelijk terug te vinden in hedendaagse woordenboeken of studieboeken, waardoor het moeilijk is verbanden te leggen met moderne literatuur.

– The language of MA the primal mother – The evolution of the female image in 40,000 years of global Venus Art

587 pages | 2013 | Paperback | Uitgeverij A3 Boeken

Venus Art reflects the consciousness of egalitarian societies of peace in which women and feminine values play or have played a central role, and where MA or the MATER or MOTHER and the primal mothers of the clan are central.

It reveals the symbolic and spiritual character of Venus Art with its basic themes of life, death, life after death and reincarnation.

It gives a historical framework in which the female image evolves, but also crumbles within the Near East from 10,000 BC to the year 0. This shows that while at first the well-rounded seated lady enjoys a respected position in society, during the Bronze and Iron Ages. She is considerably slimmed down and loses her nudity by being swathed in layers of clothing.

This reveals how the position of woman and the image of the feminine deteriorate against the backdrop of an increasingly complex, hierarchical and militarised society.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Remember MA • Welcome a new art historical approach that defi nitively maps the contribution of woman to evolution and brings to an end a male world history without women. • Remember the primal mothers, who much later were called ‘Venuses’ and sometimes pin-ups. This book rehabilitates them as the first leaders of humanity. • Learn about a global feminine system of symbols that shows an astonishing consistency and coherency. • Witness how prehistoric cultures produced much more feminine art than masculine art. • Understand why the feminine was pictured so often in old and modern female-friendly societies of peace and balance. • Learn to discern an ancient primal mother from a later goddess, priestess and worshipper. • See how a male system of symbols is laid over the older feminine system of symbols; now the female image is devalued and the world is changed in a valley of tears. • Meet the lost Lady of Old Israel in images and texts and see how she is transculturally transformed into Mary, the Lady of all Nations in Christianity. Dr Annine E.G. van der Meer (1953) is a Dutch historian of religion and holds a PhD in theology from the University of Utrecht. She is the author of several books. She has travelled widely to retrace the universal hidden Mother in sacred texts, art and symbols. She is founder and president of the Dutch PanSophia Academy, school of Wisdom, where she also teaches. In July 2010 33 women of international standing in their particular fields were honoured in the ‘Manifest Female Energy’. Annine van der Meer was one of six Dutch women to be decorated. According to the manifest, they have contributed to transformation processes in the world; a new world, in which feminine and masculine energies mutually inspire each other and are growing towards a new, powerful and creative world order.

5. De Zeven Menstypen – G. Hodson

auteur: Mehta. R./Underhill, E./Gardner, A./Hodson,G.
ISBN: 9789061750925
Additional DescriptionMore Details

1. Zoek Naar de Weg – studies in “Licht op het Pad” (Rohit Mehta) Licht op het Pad door Mabel Collins wordt wel “een der kostbaarste juwelen van de moderne theosofie” genoemd. Het bestaat uit dertig aforismen die geestelijke lering van diepe betekenis bevatten. Ze zijn integraal in dit boekje opgenomen dat is ontstaan uit een serie toespraken door Rohit Mehta, gehouden in Benares in het hoofdkwartier van de Indiase afdeling van de Theosophical Society. 2. De Scheppende Stilte – overpeinzingen over “De Stem van de Stilte” (Rohit Mehta) Rohit Mehta heeft in deze overpeinzingen over het bekende werk van H.P. Blavatsky De Stem van de Stilte, getracht een verklaring te geven van een van de merkwaardigste boeken die ooit over het geestelijk leven zijn geschreven. Blavatsky geeft daarin de mystieke leer van de Boeddha en de leer van de vedanta weer. Beide zijn nagenoeg identieke wijsgerige stelsels. Zo noemt zij vedanta vergeestelijkt boeddhisme en boeddhisme radicaal vedantisme. 3. Praktische Mystiek – voor gewone mensen (Evelyn Underhill) Dit bekende boekje, geschreven in Londen in 1914, gaat onder meer in op de vraag wat mystiek is. Het geeft een beschouwing over de wereld van de Werkelijkheid en behandelt onderwerpen als de voorbereiding van de mysticus, liefde en wilskracht, meditatie en bezinning, en de vernieuwing van het bewustzijn. “Wat is Mystiek?”, blijven velen zich afvragen na lezingen, preken en anderszins te hebben aangehoord: kunnen wij westerlingen dat bevatten en er mee leven? Evelyn Underhill geeft “een” definitie: “Mystiek is de kunst van het éénworden met de Werkelijkheid. Een mysticus is iemand, die deze éénwording in meer of mindere mate heeft bereikt, of althans iemand, die streeft naar en gelooft in zulk een éénwording.” Dit boekje heeft in onze hedendaagse maatschappij nog niets aan actualiteit verloren. 4. Meditatie – een praktische studie met oefeningen (Adelaide Gardner) Dit boekje geeft een eenvoudige doch zeer praktische handleiding in meditatie voor alle leeftijden. Per hoofdstuk zijn oefeningen opgenomen voor individuele en groepsmeditatie. De volgende onderwerpen komen onder meer aan de orde: – het doel van meditatie – de verschillende methoden – concentratie en contemplatie – hindernissen en hulpmiddelen – groepsmeditatie – het helpen van anderen door gedachten – aanbevolen literatuur voor verdere studie 5. De Zeven Mensentypen (Geoffrey Hodson) “Het leven gelijkt enigermate op een geweven tapijt: aan de onderzijde ziet men een wirwar van kleuren, knopen en draden; een patroon kan men echter niet ontdekken. Zodra de bovenzijde wordt bekeken ziet men de bedoeling van het weefsel en, hòe alles – juist in die volgorde – werd gerangschikt.” Zo is het ook met de schijnbare wanorde in de levens van mensen en volkeren. Het menselijk verstand, dat begrensd is, kan de Waarheid niet ten volle bevatten, die onbegrensd is. Het begripsvermogen van de mens neemt toe, indien men de aspecten van het leven vanuit verschillende gezichtshoeken gaat aanschouwen. Vergelijk de benadering b.v. van een berg vanuit verschillende standpunten: de berg blijft ongewijzigd, echter de (Uw) aanblik is steeds anders. Ten slotte leert U die berg kennen en zo is het ook met het zoeken naar Waarheid.

The Power of the New Spirituality – How to Live a Life of Compassion and Personal Fulfillment

258 pages | Paperback | Quest Books, 2012

Everyone has religious experiences, but most people just don’t know how to identify them, claims author William Bloom. Today’s society makes ever-increasing demands on us, but in the practice of modern spirituality, we can find heartening new solutions that give us the energy, motivation and inspiration to develop ourselves and transform our world.

The Power of the New Spirituality uniquely straddles mainstream and alternative forms of belief in commonsense, everyday language. Bloom speaks directly to the legions of people who seek to replace a single-faith tradition with a more generalized spirituality. He identifies the core similarities in all spiritual traditions and explains how everyone-regardless of background, beliefs or personality type – can immediately put them into practice.

auteur: Bloom, W.
ISBN: 9780835609067
Additional DescriptionMore Details

Bloom shows how to develop the key aspects of connection, reflection and service in the context of today’s challenges in order to gain greater meaning in our lives. He also explains the phenomenon of spiritual voices in a psychological context, and he describes how modern spirituality’s ethical core is stronger even than that of traditional faiths because it includes green values and insights from developmental psychology. Written in a lively and inspiring style and drawn from Bloom’s popular workshops, The Power of the New Spirituality helps us explore ourselves more deeply. It is an invaluable tool for increasing a sense of integrity, inner strength and personal joy. It will also help readers connect more strongly with family members, friends and colleagues, and forge a sense of being in the driver’s seat of their lives.

The Brightened Mind – A Simple Guide to Buddhist Meditation

107 pages | Paperback | Quest Books, 2011

Helps You Tap Into An Infinite Reservoir of Clarity and Calm

Modern times have created a siege of chaos. Struggling economy, political turmoil, media bombardment and a general culture of isolation all contribute to this unrest. Buddhist author Ajahn Sumano Bhikkhu presents a simple path to freedom from such chaos in The Brightened Mind.

“Sumano Bikkhu’s The Brightened Mind is a most precious little jewel, introducing the spiritual armchair traveler to the wonders of the Universal Mind as taught in the Buddhist meditative tradition.” — Glenn Mullin, author of Female Buddhas, The Fourteen Dalai Lamas, and Living in the Face of Death.

auteur: Sumano Bhikku, A.
ISBN: 9780835608992
Additional DescriptionMore Details

Sumano speaks to the modern seeker from a unique perspective, as a former law school graduate and real estate professional in Chicago. He abandoned his comfortable American lifestyle for the begging bowl and simple cave home of an ordained Buddhist monk in the tradition of the Thai forest meditation masters. Now a spiritual teacher in Tibet, Sumano walks the reader through the workings of the mind and how thought processes often affect our experiences. He shows how to quiet the mind, turning off the “rolling documentary of your past and future” to experience the freedom of quiet focus. Through easy-to-follow guided meditations called “mind trainings” or “mind-fitness techniques,” he teaches the reader how to think productively tapping into the ultimate source of wealth, our own divine consciousness. Sumano posits that we all have within us this abundance simply waiting to be utilized. Using these practices readers will find themselves free from the body and the mundane, the I-ego mind. From this place of insight life’s challenges can be navigated with much less stress and with much more hope. As Sumano says, “In order to progress and prosper in peace, we must respond to the challenges of our times not from fear and anxiety but from a place of circumspection —from a brightened mind.”

The Reality of ESP – A Physicist’s Proof of Psychic Abilities

306 pages | Paperback | Quest Books, 2012

On February 4, 1974, members of the Symbionese Liberation Army kidnapped nineteen-year-old newspaper heiress Patricia Hearst from her Berkeley, California apartment. Desperate to find her, the police called physicist Russell Targ and Pat Price, a psychic retired police commissioner. As Price turned the pages of the police mug book filled with hundreds of photos, suddenly he pointed to one of them and announced, “That’s the ringleader.” The man was Donald DeFreeze, who was indeed subsequently so identified. Price also described the type and location of the kidnap car, enabling the police to find it within minutes. That remarkable event is one reason Targ believes in ESP. Another occurred when his group made $120,000 by forecasting for nine weeks in a row the changes in the silver-commodity futures market.

auteur: Targ, R.
ISBN: 9780835608848
Additional DescriptionMore Details

As a scientist, Targ demands proof. His experience is based on two decades of investigations at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI), which he cofounded with physicist Harold Puthoff in 1972. This twenty-million dollar program launched during the Cold War was supported by the CIA, NASA, the Defense Intelligence Agency, and Army and Air Force Intelligence. The experiments they conducted routinely presented results could have happened by chance less than once in a million. Targ describes four types of experiments: Remote Viewing, in which a person describes places and events independent of space and time. For example, while in California Price drew to scale a Soviet weapons factory at Semipalitinsk with great accuracy later confirmed by Satellite photography. In another remote viewing, Targ accurately sketched an airport in San Andreas, Columbia himself. Distant Mental Influence, where the thoughts of the experimenter can positively or negatively affect the physiology (heart rate, skin resistance, etc.) of a distant person. Whole field isolation, where someone in a state of sensory isolation accurately describes the visual experiences of someone else in another place. Precognition and retrocausality, showing that the future can affect the past. That is, the elephant you see on television in the morning can be the cause of your having dreamed about elephants the previous night. Final chapters present evidence for survival after death; explain how ESP works based on the Buddhist/Hindu view of ourselves as nonlocal, eternal awareness; discuss the ethics of exercising psychic abilities,and show us how to explore ESP ourselves. “I am convinced,” Targ says, “that most people can learn to move from their ordinary mind to one not obstructed by conventional barriers of space and time. Who would not want to try that?” This book contains, among many other things, a comprehensive yet concise description of the government programs the author helped developed to research psi phenomena. For this reason alone, the book is an historically important contribution. In addition, it contains many compelling first-person descriptions of psi. This is a book I can feel comfortable recommending to skeptical colleagues. Very important! — David E Presti, University of California, Berkeley This book, detailing its author’s many successful investigations into the paranormal, should make those who deny the possible existence of such phenomena think again”. — Brian Josephson, Nobel Laureate in Physics and Emeritus Professor, Physics, University of Cambridge Russell Targ is a physicist and author, and was a pioneer in the development of the laser and laser applications. He holds his B.S. in Physics from Queens College, and did graduate work in physics at Columbia University. Targ has received two National Aeronautics and Space Administration awards for inventions and contributions in lasers and laser communications, and has published over one hundred scientific papers on lasers, plasma physics and ESP research.

Theosophist Joy Mills describes her as “a feminist before the movement for women’s rights was fully launched; she stood for freedom when half the world was held in the bonds of colonialism.” A student of India’s spiritual traditions, Annie Besant was famed as an orator, author, and international President of the Theosophical Society.

You are the world – Talks and Discussions in American Universities

164 pages | Paperback | Krishnamurti Foundation India, 1998

There is today a strange and deep discontent among the young people. Responding to this malaise, the words of J. Krishnamurti direct each person to become his own teacher as well as his own disciple. He asks us to use his words as mirror to look at ourselves as we actually are and to see the totality of existence. To look in such a manner, the mind must be completely free – not bound by authority of any kind.

But this freedom should not be misunderstood to mean freedom to lead an undisciplined, self-indulgent life. The freedom of which Krishnamurti speaks requires a total revolution in the psyche itself. When the mind empties itself of the known, then the human being can undergo complete transformation.
