Ganesha – Kleine Woordentolk der Geesteswetenschappen

Samengesteld door: Ir. A.J.H. van Leeuwen, A.P. Meyer-Gerhard en N.E. van der Schoot-Groot.

246 Pagina’s | Uitgegeven in 1969, tweede druk 1977, derde en herziene druk 2012 | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland, Amsterdam | ISBN: 9789061750079.

De occulte literatuur is in de laatste decennia steeds meer in de belangstelling komen te staan. Vele nieuwe gebieden van occultisme, esoteriek, mysticisme, yoga, paranormale wetenschappen en aanverwante aspecten ervan worden in studie genomen. Meer dan vroeger houdt men zich thans bezig met het bestuderen van de verschillende Aziatische godsdiensten, waarbij soms talrijke woorden en begrippen voor de lezer onbekend blijven, zonder de mogelijkheid om de betekenis ervan in een woordenboek op te kunnen zoeken. Dit kleine woordenboek, dat wij Ganesha noemden naar de hoogste van de Ganadevata’s, de olifantkoppige God, heer van kennis, uit-de-weg-ruimer van hinderpalen, heeft de bedoeling aan deze behoefte van de lezer tegemoet te komen.

Afkomstig uit het ‘Voorwoord’ (blz, 5):

” De occulte literatuur is in de laatste decennia zo buitengewoon uitgebreid en er zijn zoveel nieuwe gebieden van occultisme, esoteriek, mysticisme, yoga, paranormale wetenschappen en aanverwante aspecten daarvan in studie genomen, dat een nieuw woordenboek dringend noodzakelijk is geworden. Het onderhavige boek heeft de bedoeling enigszins aan deze behoefte tegemoet te komen. Het mag uiteraard geen aanspraak maken op volledigheid, maar door het benutten van zoveel mogelijk gegevens uit allerhande  afzonderlijke woordenboeken, woordenlijsten en andere publicaties, koesteren de samenstellers de verwachting dat althans een wat hoger niveau van volledigheid werd bereikt en de inhoud zich meer aanpast bij de moderne occulte literatuur.

Vegetarianism and Occultism

By Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934).

72 Pages | Reprint 2001 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170593689.

Leadbeater explains in definite and simple terms, on grounds of health, economy, ecology, ethics and spirituality, why the vegetarian diet is best for humans. He quotes numeral medical and other authorities of his time to show how unnecessary it is to slaughter millions of animals and birds for food and what  effects the killing and consumption of the flesh has on the physical, emotional and mental nature of the persons involved. The arguments put forth in this book in favour of vegetarianism are finding more and more support in the present day.

38 Pages | First to tenth reprints 1912 – 2002 | Paperback | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170591902.

Leadbeater, an eminent seer and occultist, was a highly developed clairvoyant and the author of many books on the spiritual life and on the hidden side of things. In this slim volume, he provides valuable guidelines on the correct use of and control of the power of thought and emotion and of our responsibility for their effect upon others for good or evil. To change the world for the better, the first step is to change ourselves. To do this, requires us to know weaknesses, our strengths. Then we may utilize the magnificent power within for the benefit of humanity

The Monad – And other Essays on the Higher Consciousness

By Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934).

167 Pages | Second edition, 8th reprint, 2012 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 9788170592884.

The Monad is a collection of essays written by Leadbeater and published in Theosophical magazines between 1913 – 1920, pertaining to the Higher Consciousness of man. It casts light with a clairvoyant insight and Theosophical understanding on topics, such as psychic development, the Buddhic consciousness and the meaning of Time. This small volume deals with subjects, that are of the highest importance for students of Theosophy, and over the years it has become a classic of Theosophical literature.

An extract from the first Chapter:

” Even when clairvoyance is developed – even when a man opens the sight of his causal body, and looks at the causal body of another man – even then, though he sees a manifestation of the ego on his own plane, he is still far from seeing the real man. “

322 Pages | Third edition, 4th reprint, 1925 | Hardcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 9788170591986.

Leadbeater, eminent seer and occultist, writes in this book of the Perfected Men, the Masters, ‘Men beyond mankind‘, whose existence ‘is one of the most important of the many facts, which Theosophy puts before us’.

Drawing on his personal experiences, the experiences of others, and the teachings of the religions, the mystics and the saints, he writes about the personalities of the Masters, their homes, their work, their nature and their powers. He also decribes the various stages on the Path the aspirant has to thread to reach them, from probation to acceptance as their disciple, and beyond.

383 Pages | Published in 1978 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 9780835605021.

A clairvoyant, Leadbeater wrote, is simply a person who develops ‘the power to respond to another octave out of the stupendous gamut of possible vibrations’ and so is enabled ‘to see more of the world than those of more limited perception’. And what a world Leadbeater describes for us in these pages – a world of Master Adepts and their pupils, untapped human powers and potentials, ancient Mysteries, Deva-s and Nature Spirits. In short, the unseen workings of the universe . . .

The Hidden Side of Things

By Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934).

560 Pages | Third edition, 2nd reprint 2012 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 9788170593386.

‘ A classic work of clairvoyant investigation. ‘

Why is there so much Chaos in this world? This book may help the reader to understand the influence thoughts and actions have on the way we relate to our inner selves, to human and non-human beings and to the universe.

From Chapter One:

“The term ‘occultism’ is one which has been much misunderstood. In the mind of the ignorant it was, even recently, synonymous with magic, and its students were supposed to be practitioners of the black art, veiled in flowing robes of scarlet covered with cabalistic signs, sitting amidst uncanny surroundings with a black cat as a familiar, compounding unholy decoctions by the aid of satanic evocations. 

Even now, and among those whose education has raised above such superstition as this, there still remains a good deal of misapprehension. For them, its derivation from the Latin word ‘occultus’ ought to explain at once, that it is the science of the hidden; but they often regard it contemptuously as nonsensical and unpractical […] Students, who should know better, perpetually speak as though the hidden side of things were intentionally concealed, as though knowledge with regard to it ought to be in the hands of all men, but was being deliberately withheld by the caprice or selfishness of a few: whereas the fact is, that nothing is or can be hidden from us by our own limitations, and that for every man as he evolves, the world grows wider and wider, because he is able to see more and more of its grandeur and its loveliness.”

The Hidden Life in Freemasonry

By Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934).

376 Pages | Eight reprint 2001 | Paperback | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170591066.

From the Foreword by Annie Besant (1847 – 1933):

“It is once more my privilege to usher into the world, for the helping of the thoughtful, another volume of the series on the hidden side of things written by Bishop True Mason that he is, he is ever trying to spread the Light, which he has received, so that it may chase away the darkness of Chaos. To look for the Light, to see the Light, to follow the Light, were duties to all Egyptian Masons, though the darkness in that Ancient Land never approached the density which shrouds the West today.

This book will be welcomed by all Freemasons, who feel the beauty of their ancient Rite, and desire to add knowledge to their zeal. The inner History of Masonry is left aside for the present, and the apprentice is led by a trustworthy guide through the labyrinth which protects the central Shrine from careless and idle inquirers. Places, that were obscure become illuminated; dark allusions are changed to crystal clarity; walls which seemed solid melt away; confidence replaces doubt; glimpses of the goal are caught through rifts in the clouds; and the earth-born mists vanish before the rays of the rising sun… “

The Smaller Buddhist Catechism

Compiled by Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934) and translated by Curuppumullage Jinarājadāsa (1875–1953).

41 Pages | First edition 1902, first reprint 2004 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 817059443X.

This work is a translation of a small Sinhalese Catechism of Buddhism in two parts, called Bauddha Sisubodhaya, which was compiled by Mr. C.W. Leadbeater in 1889, when he was working in connection with the Buddhist Theosophical Society. During the work of teaching in Buddhist Sunday Schools and later in the Buddhist English High School of Colombo (now Ananda College), Mr. Leadbeater found Colonel Olcott’s Catechism far above the grasp of most of the children, as that Catechism was not composed for children. A far simpeler work being urgently needed, Mr. Leadbeater with the help of Buddhist friends put together this little publication.

To Those Who Mourn

68 Pages | Second edition, 2nd reprint 2012 | Paperback | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar

We may think that death has snatched away one dear to us. But the Soul is immortal. Man is a Soul and has a body. Death only means putting the body aside, for there is life after death and one’s dear one lives on in the spiritual body and may be contacted during sleep or deep in one’s consciousness. If we sorrow for the dead, their progress is hindered. The attitude of mourning shows lack of faith. There is one God, and we are all in Him. If we can but realize the unity of that Eternal Love, there will be no more sorrow for us.

From page 62;

” If we mourn, if we yield to gloom and depression, we throw out from ourselves a heavy cloud which darkens the sky for them. Their very affection for us, their very sympathy for us, lays them open to this direful influence. We can use the power which that affection gives us, to help them instead of hindering them, if we only will: but to do that requires courage and self-sacrifice. We must forget ourselves utterly in our earnest and loving desire to be of the greatest possible assistance to our dead . . . “

This book starts with the basic assertion, that clairvoyance is a reality. It proceeds to describe what is seen by its means. The layman, who is not familiair with it has first to clearly comprehend the wonderful complexity of the world – the limited that is visible and the unlimited vast area that is not visible. The author traces the development of the bodies, the consciousness, the emotions, their significant colours, the aura and the Divinity enveloping all. Our faith in human nature may increase when we see how entirely Man is part of the Divine Nature. The more we see this glorious scheme of evolution, the greater will be the urge to seek further and see man’s infinite potential.

De Mens – Zichtbaar en Onzichtbaar / Gedachtevormen

Door Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934).

174 Pagina’s met 30 gekleurde platen | 1902 Met de eerste druk in 1903, 2de geheel herziene druk 2009 Hardcover | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland, 2009 | ISBN: 9789061750901.

English Original: Man Visible and Invisible | First edition, 10th reprint 2008 | Hardcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 9788170595526.

Dit boek is een inspirerende gids voor de serieuze zoeker naar de realiteit achter en in onze zichtbare werkelijkheid. De auteur was een begaafde en geoefende helderziende onderzoeker.

Aura’s en gedachtrvormen behoren tot het ‘onzichtbare’. De mens is altijd naar het onzichtbare op zoek geweest, maar heeft daarbij vaak in het duister moeten tasten, doordat zijn ontwikkeling steeds materialistischer en zakelijker werd – zelfs op het gebied van het spirituele. Het doorgronden van het mysterie van de relatie tussen het zichtbare en het onzichtbare is slechts weinigen gegeven. Het vergt oefening in de eerste plaats en een buitengewone gevoeligheid. Zo is dat altijd geweest en zo is het nog steeds.

Af en toe komen we iemand tegen wiens vermogen tot het waarnemen van het onzichtbare op ons een onuitwisbare indruk maakt. Schrijver en helderziende Charles Webster Leadbeater is zo iemand. In de geschiedenis heeft hij nog niemand zoals hij helderziend onderzoek gedaan en dat vervolgens met afbeeldingen in een boek samengebracht. Leadbeater is wat dat betreft ongeëvenaard. Dit is het werk over aura’s en gedachtevormen. Het kan worden gezien als de tegenhanger van het eveneens door Leadbeater later geschreven, baanbrekende werk De Chakra’s (1927). Het is een inspirerende gids voor de serieuze zoeker naar de realiteit achter en in onze zichtbare werkelijkheid. Meer dan een gids kan het uiteraard niet zijn, omdat de lezer ten allen tijde op zijn of haar eigen intuïtie en waarnemingsvermogen zal moeten afgaan.

Afkomstig van bladzijde 28 & 29:

” De naam ‘astraal’ is niet door onszelf gekozen; wij hebben hem geërfd van de Middeleeuwse alchemisten. Hij betekent ‘sterachtig’ en men gelooft dat hij is toegekend aan de stof van het gebied dat het eerst komt boven het stoffelijke vanwege het lichtgevende voorkomen, dat wordt verbonden met de grotere snelheid van haar trilling. Het astrale gebied is de wereld van de hartstocht, van emotie en sensatie; en door het voertuig van de mens op dit gebied is het, dat al zijn gevoelens zich aan de helderziende onderzoeker vertonen. Het astrale lichaam van de mens verandert daarom voortdurend van uiterlijk naarmate diens aandoeningen wisselen. “

The Life After Death

By Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934).

94 Pages | First edition 2012, 13th Reprint | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 9788170592532.

The subject of life after death is one of great interest to all of us, not only because we ourselves must certainly die one day, but far more because there can scarcely be any more among us, except perhaps the very young, who has not lost (as we call it) by death someone who is near and dear to us. So if there be any information available with regard to the life after death, we are naturally very anxious to have it.

From Chapter VII – ‘Guardian Angels’ (p. 69 & 71):

” There are many graceful traditions of spiritual guardianship and angelic intervention, which we should all very much like to believe if we could only see our way to accept them rationally, and I hope to explain that to a very large extent we may do this. The belief in such intervention is a very old one. Among the earliest Indian legends we find accounts of the occasional appearances of minor deities at critical points in human affairs. […] The old belief in angels and archangels is justified by the facts, for just as there are various kingdoms below humanity, so there are also kingdoms above it in evolution. We find next above us, holding much the same position with regard to us that we in turn hold to the animal kingdom, the great kingdom of Deva-s or Angels, and above them again an evolution which has been called that of the Dhyan Chohans or archangels and so upward to the very feet of Divinity. All is one graduated life, from God Himself to the very dust of beneath our feet – one long ladder, of which humanity occupies only one of the steps. “

Leadbeater was a highly developed clairvoyant and the author of over thirty books on the spiritual life and the psychic nature of man.

From page 2:

” Naturally the work of every Lodge has its public side. There are lectures given to the public and opportunities offered for them to ask questions; all this is good and necessary. But every Lodge, which is worthy of the name, is also doing something far higher than any work on the physical plane, and this higher work can only be done in its own primary meetings. Furthermore, it can be done only if these meetings are properly conducted and entirely harmonious. ”

Dreams

Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934).

67 Pages | Sixth edition 2012 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 9788170595717.

Dreams are part of common experience, yet a mystery that is little understood. Psychologists and others, who are ignorant of the human being’s true constitution, ranging across several subtle levels, are only groping to learn their significance. Leadbeater, an eminent clairvoyant and author of many books, explains in the manual how human consciousness functions when the body is asleep and how it is affected by the experiences in the physical and the subtle worlds. These experiences take shape as dreams of different kinds – true, prophetic, symbolical, confused and so on.

The author emphasizes the importance of mastery over thought processes and lower passions in order to respond to the influences of the true Self within. The last thoughts before going to sleep must be about pure and holy things. Then dreams will not disturb the serene and joyful experience of higher worlds.

According to the teachings of the Hindu and other Mystic Schools there are subtle organs in man’s superphysical bodies, which channel psychic energies and vital forces, and serve as a link between the physical, psychic and superphysical states of consciousness. These centres are called Chakras, a Sanskrit term (cakram) meaning wheels or discs. The chakras, which have been likened to flowers with many petals, have been seen and described by clairvoyant investigators as wheel-like vortices, which appear in vivid colours like blazing, coruscating whirlpools.

Charles W. Leadbeater describes his research into the nature and functions of the chakras in this book, which was first published in 1927. It has since been through several printings and has become a classic in its field. The work is illustrated by ten colour plates and nine drawings.

Clairvoyance

Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934).

230 Pages | First edition, 21st reprint, 2015 | Hardcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 9788170593195.

This book explores the nature of clairvoyance, partial and full clairvoyance as well as clairvoyance in space and time plus methods of development. The style of presentation is simple and objective, while showing the vast possibilities, which are open to anyone, who develops such an extended sight into some of the inner realities of life.

Leadbeater was a trained clairvoyant and the author of over thirty books on the spiritual life and the inner nature of the human being. His investigations of the unseen realms around us have had a marked influence on the contemporary world, one of them being the discovery of Jiddu Krishnamurti’s (1895 – 1986) potential as a spiritual teacher.

Ancient Mystic Rites

By Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934).

241 Pages | First Quest Edition 1986, 3rd printing 1995 | Softcover | Quest Books, USA | ISBN: 0835606090.

Ancient Mystic Rites is Leadbeater absorbing in-depth study of the Mystery Schools of Egypt, Greece, Judea and Europe in the Middle Ages, up to the emergence of Co-Masonry in the twentieth century. During his lifetime, Leadbeater used his rare capacity for clairvoyance or ‘seeing’ beyond the physical plane for many purposes. He observed and recorded the sub-atomic structure of a number of elements before science had the capacity to determine such things. He described the forms and colors created as a result of our thoughts and the shapes and colors of the human subtle body.

Drawing on these abilities as well as on historical records, Leadbeater relates in this book fascinating, previously unknown facts about the Mystery Schools and their practices and beliefs. His observations and reflections point up many similarities among these schools in spite of distance and time  – a common ‘Mystery-bond’ running through otherwise disparate cultures. As Leadbeater shows, these Ancient Rites have emerged in this century as Freemasonry.

Speurtocht naar het Zelf

Door Eunice Layton en Felix Layton.

75 Pagina’s | Uitgegeven in 1987; dit boek maakt deel uit van de Lotusreeks II | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland | ISBN: 9789061750239.

Engels origineel: Some Basic Concepts of Theosophy | Uitgegeven in 1960 | The Theosophical Publishing House | Geen ISBN nr.

Dit boekje bestaat uit vier toespraken over Theosofische grondbegrippen, beginselen van de oude wijsheid, die onderwezen werden door de wijzen van alle volken en tijden:

  1. Een goddelijk plan in een chaotische wereld
  2. Ken uw ware zelf
  3. Reïncarnatie
  4. Heerst er gerechtigheid in de wereld?

De Theosofisch Vereniging is een groepering van zoekers naar ‘waarheid’, die allemaal het geloof in de algemene Broederschap der Mensheid gemeen hebben. Zodoende is er geen dogma of geloofsbelijdenis, die het denken van de leden aan banden legt. De beschouwingen in dit werkje zijn voor hen, waarheidszoekers overal ter wereld, in de hoop dat ze zullen helpen om dieper inzicht te verkrijgen in de speurtocht naar het ontdekken van het eigen wijze ‘Zelf’.

Afkomstig van blz. 71:

” We zijn niet alleen de omstandigheden, die we zelf hebben geschapen, maar we zijn ook in de best denkbare gelegenheid om die geestelijke vermogens te ontplooien, waaraan we toe zijn. De werking der wet is een zege, al denken we daar soms anders over. We zijn hier niet toevallig. Het is niet bij toeval, dat we hier wonen in plaats van China of op de Zuidzee Eilanden of nog ergens anders. Als we onze lessen leren, indien we die eigenschap aankweken, die de omstandigheden en het leven ons proberen bij te brengen, zullen we na de volgende stap voorwaarts gedaan te hebben, zien, dat onze omstandigheden op miraculeuze wijze zijn veranderd. Niet de wereld moet veranderd worden, maar wij zelf. Zoals wij zelf zijn, zo maken we de wereld. “

Een passage uit de laatste toespraak:

We zijn niet alleen precies in de omstandigheden die we zelf hebben geschapen, maar we zijn ook in de best denkbare gelegenheid om die geestelijke vermogens te ontplooien waar we aan toe zijn.
De hier geschetste opvattingen zijn de beginselen van de oude wijsheid, die onderwezen werden door de wijzen van alle volken en tijden. Deze eeuwige wetten worden hier aangeboden, gezien in het licht van de gebeurtenissen en ervaringen uit het dagelijks leven in de twintigste eeuw. Hierdoor kregen ze iets origineels, waardoor deze lezingen populair werden. Er wordt geen aanspraak gemaakt alle grondwaarheden van de Theosofie naar voren te hebben gebracht. Er  worden alleen  denkbeelden weer gegeven, die de schrijvers ontdekten bij hun studie van de uitgebreide klassieke literatuur van de Theosofische Vereniging en tijdens hun zoektocht naar de diepere betekenis van het leven. De auteurs zijn er in geslaagd deze denkbeelden helder uiteen te zetten.

Life: Your Great Adventure – A Theosophical View

By Eunice and Felix Layton.

178 Pages | Revised edition 1988 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN 083560635x.

Formerly published as Theosophy: Key to Understanding (1967), this book is based on many talks the authors have presented in lectures and classes throughout the United States and in various other countries. They provide answers to basic human questions, such as:

  • Is there some meaning to existence?
  • Is there life after death?
  • Will we live again?
  • How can we find inner peace?

With their wide background of experience, Mrs. and Mr. Layton are able to bring a common sense approach to the metaphysical concepts of Theosophy and relate them to the problems of people in their daily lives.

From Chapter 15 – ‘Release Your Imprisoned Splendor’ (p. 170 & 171):

” How beautifully the book ends, having gone through all these other qualifications. For it concludes with this reminder: ‘Of all the qualifications, love is the most important, for if it is strong enough in a man, it forces him to acquire all the rest, and all the rest without it would never be sufficient . . . He who is on the Path exists not for himself or herself, but for others; he/she has forgotten him/herself, in order that he may serve them.

This the test of where every individual, including each of us, stands in the evolutionary process. To the degree that we forget ourselves in the service of others, to that same degree have we begun to release this imprisoned splendor. “

The Book of Enoch The Prophet

Translated by Richard Laurence.

192 Pages | 1995, Secret Doctrine Reference Series | Softcover | Wizards Bookshelf, San Diego, U.S.A. | ISBN: 091351067x.

In the  year 1773, after a period of almost total obscurity lasting 1500 years, the Scottisch explorer, James Bruce, discovered in what is now Ethiopia, The Book of Enoch. He writes:

‘Amongst the articles I consigned to the library at Paris was a very beautiful and magnificent copy of the prophesies of Enoch, in large quarto.; another is amongst the books of scripture, that I brought home., standing immediately before the Book of Job, which is its proper place in the Abyssinian Cannon: and a third copy I presented to the Bodleian Library at Oxford, by the hands of Dr. Douglas, the Bishop of Carlisle’. 

It rested there, forgotten, until 1821 when Laurence issued his first translation of which there were many editions, culminating in the revised edition of 1883, compiled from notes in his estate. As a former professor of Hebrew at Oxford, Laurence’s familiarity with Kabbalah and the Zohar (as shown in the introductions of earlier editions) gave him unique qualifications that were especially useful in translating a work of this type. The very profound and encyclopedic work on comparative religion and hermetic philosophy. The Secret Doctrine by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, refers to this edition on 37 occasions. It is reprinted here verbatim.

Mencius

By Mencius (372–289 BC or 385–303 or 302 BC), translation and introduction by D.C. Lau.

280 Pages | First published 1970 | Paperback | Penguin Books, London | ISBN: 0140442286.

With an introduction by D.C. Lau.

” The Mencius is the most beautifully written and perhaps the most authorative of the Four Books that make up the essential Confucian corpus. “

As centralized government replaced feudalism in China, the ideas of Confucius (551 – 479 B.C.) faced the challenge of increasing cynicism. It was Mencius, in the years just after 320 B.C., who adapted them to the new age and thus helped to formulate a Confucian orthodoxy that has remained deeply influential ever since. Whether he is expounding his doctrine of the basic goodness of human nature – the ‘original heart’, which can be lost or overwhelmed by our selfish impulses – developing his method of argument by analogy or offering strikingly modern views on the duties of the subjects and their rulers and the evils of war, Mencius is always fascinating and often profound. This superb translation, complete with a masterly Introduction and Appendices on the historical and philosophical background, presents him directly to the English reader.

Spiritual Healing – Doctors Examine Therapeutic Touch and other Holistic Treatments

By Dora Kunz (1904 – 1999).

333 Pages | First Quest Edition 1995 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835607143.

A spiritual revolution is underway in health care. More and more doctors, nurses, and counselors are recognizing that health means treating the soul and psyche as well as the body. In this new edition of a classic collection, the best minds in holistic healing explore the spiritual basis of the alternative health care movement.

From Chapter I: ‘Healing as World View (p. 1):

” Is healing a process related to the nature of the cosmos? The authors in this section, a physician and two professors, argue that it is:

” We interact with the universe in ways that are profound. ”  – Larry Dossey.

” A person becomes whole physically, emotionally, mentally and at deeper levels, resulting ideally in an integration with the underlying inward powers of the universe “.  – Weber.

” To be whole is to be encompassed by the sense of the divine in the divine cosmos “. – Skolimowski.

Thus health and disease are placed in a cosmic setting. “

The Personal Aura (with 19 Full Color Illustrations)

By Dora van Gelder-Kunz (1904 – 1999).

195 Pages | A Quest Original, first edition 1991, second printing 1996 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835606716.

This book, an original study of the human aura, includes 19 paintings that depict the emotional energies, which surround each person. The changes that occur from infancy to old age are illustrated by the auras of specific people. The pictures also show changes, that occur in the aura in illness. The author worked with Juanita Donahoo to produce the striking paintings in full color. The Personal Aura presents a fresh view of these subtle aspects of the human constitutionm which are hidden from most of us. It offers helpful suggestions for changing difficult emotional patterns.

From Chapter 8: ‘Healing and the Possiblities for Change and Growth’ (p. 166):

” The effects of healing upon the patient’s aura can be quite dramatic. First, the influx of emotional energy causes the aura to expand. When this happens, it starts up the process of eliminating some of the disturbances and blockages in the aura, and thus reduces anxiety. Anxiety produces frightening mental images. But if imagery is used together with the healing, there will be a simultaneous effect; the immune system will be strengthened through the influx of etheric energy, and as the frightening image dissipate, the aura will slowly regain its integration and recover its health. ”

Dhammapada – Pali Text in Roman with English Translation

By Prof. C. Kunhan Raja.

123 Pages | First edition 1956, second reprint 1984 | Paperback | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 0835675718.

In translating the Dhammapada, there is one great difficulty in so far as there are many words on which scholars differ widely about their meaning and there is also considerable difference of view regarding the general purport of the passages in many cases. I have given my own rendering, after a careful study of the text with other texts of a related nature.

[…]

This book is accepted as a Buddhistic Text. But it is not at all anti-Hindu. It is really an Indian text. There is nothing in this text to which any orthodox Hindu can take any objection. Most of the ideas contained here are found also in Hindu Texts like the Upaniṣads, the Bhagavad Gītā and the Mahābhārata.

From page 113:

” divā tapati ādicco rattim ābhāti candimā

sannaddho khattiyo tapati jhāyī tapati brāhmaṇo 

atha sabbam ahorattaṁ buddho tapati tejasā

The Sun shines by the day, the Moon illumines the night;

a Kshatriya (Warrior, from Sanskrit kṣatra) with armour shines, a Brahmin shines in meditation.

Then all the days and the nights, Buddha illumines with his lustre. “

Why are You being Educated? – Talks at Indian Universities

By Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895–1986).

132 Pages | First edition 2002, reprinted in 2004 | Softcover | Krishnamurti Foundation, India | ISBN: 8187326395.

This book consists of six talks, that Krishnamurti gave at Indian Universities of Technology between 1969 – 1984.

Krishnamurti’s chief concern here is to awaken students to the fact that the pursuit of knowledge does not liberate man from his ignorance of himself. While knowledge is indispensable, it also creates the illusion that we have the intelligence to meet the challenges of life. This makes us neglect the vast and subtle field of the human psyche. This perspective comes through clearly in these talks, which therefore have significance not just for the young, but also for parents, teachers, and all those interested in the deeper issues of life.

From page 39:

” So if we come back to the fundamental question: what is ignorance? Ignorance, is this unawareness of the whole structure of and nature of the mind, the brain and of all its movement; that is the very essence of ignorance. You learn from books and from your professors, pass examinations, get a few degrees and get a job – that is nothing. That is necessary in this mad world, but to be totally unaware of the extraordinary movement, the beauty, the subtlety, the quickness of all that inward movement, to be unconscious, to be unaware of it is not only ignorance; it brings its own destruction. “

What Are You Doing With Your Life?

Dutch translation: Wat Doe JIJ Met Je Leven?! – Jonge Mensen en Relaties, Opleiding, Toekomstig Werk en de Zin van Je Leven | Eerste druk 2003, tweede druk 2004 | Softcover | Ank-Hermes B.V., Deventer | ISBN: 9020283006.

What Are You Doing With Your Life? Brings together excerpts from Krishnamurti’s books, and represents the first anthology of its kind, that offers the young a systematic approach to his vision of education and life. Krishnamurti, whose life and teachings have spanned the greater part of the 20th century, is regarded by many as one who has had the most profound impact on human consciousness in modern times.

From Chapter I – ‘What Are You’:

” What is the relationship between you and the misery, confusion within and around you? Undoubtly, this confusion and misery did not appear by themselves. You and I gave birth to them, not a capitalist, communist or fascist society, but you and I have created them in relation to each other. What you are from the inside, is from the outside projected on the world.  What you are, what you think and what you feel, what you do in daily life, is projected outwardly shaping this world. […] What you are is the world, and so your problem is the problem of the world. This certainly is a simple and fundamental fact, right? Seemingly, we forget this all the time in relation to a single or many human beings. We would like to make a change by means of a system or revolution of ideas based on a system, yet forget; you and I create society and cause chaos or establish order by the way in which we live our lives. “

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Sage, philosopher and thinker, he illumined the lives of millions the world over – intellectuals and laymen, young and old. Breaking away from all organized religions and denying his role as a Guru, he spelt out his mission: to set man absolutely and unconditionally free. He travelled round the world till the age of 90 giving talks, writing, holding discussions. He talked of the things that concern all of us in our everyday life; the problems of living in modern society, the individual’s search for security, and the need for human beings to free themselves from from their inner burdens of violence, fear and sorrow. Born on 11th May 1895 as the eighth child of a pious couple in the small town of Madanapalle in Andhra Pradesh, Krishnamurti was adopted at the age of 14 by Annie Besant, the President of the Theosophical Society, and was brought up and groomed to be the World Teacher. In 1929, however, he renounced that role and dissolved The Order of the Star – a large world-wide organization that had been built up around him to fulfill that mission. This action was the culmination of the deep spiritual awakening undergone by him and his insight that religious organizations cannot lead human beings to truth.

De Wereld Dat Ben Jij

Door Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895 – 1986), vertaald door Hans van der Kroft.

219 Pagina’s | Eerste druk 1973, 2de druk 1978, 3de druk 1983, 4de druk 1993, 5de druk 2016 | Softcover | Synthese, een imprint van Milinda Uitgevers B.V. | ISBN: 9789062715107.

Engels origineel: You Are The World | Copyright 1972 | Krishnamurti Foundation Trust, Ltd, Hampshire, England | ISBN: 978-9060773321.

‘ In jezelf ligt heel de wereld besloten en als je weet hoe je moet kijken en leren, sta je voor de deur met de sleutel in je hand. Geen mens ter wereld kan je die sleutel geven of de deur voor je openen. Dat kan je alleen zelf doen. ‘

Onder dit motto houdt Krishnamurti twaalf stimulerende toespraken voor studenten en docenten van vier Amerikaanse universiteiten. Na elke toespraak wordt hij bestookt met vragen over onderwerpen als angst, vooroordelen, liefde, seksualiteit, geconditioneerd zijn, enz. Hoewel hij zich in de eerste plaats lijkt te richten tot de jeugd, is zijn boodschap – zoals altijd eigenlijk – bestemd voor iedereen, voor jong en oud, Oost en West. Het gaat hem vooral om het ontmantelen van het kunstmatige onderscheid dat wij hebben gemaakt tussen onszelf en ‘de wereld’. De wereld, zegt Krishnamurti, is niet iets dat op je af komt, maar iets waar je onlosmakelijk mee verbonden bent, waar je in feite een mee bent. Onze kritische, afwijzende en wantrouwende houding tegenover  wat wij de wereld noemen dient plaats te maken voor de realiteit van het deelhebben aan die wereld, van het beseffen dat wij het zelf zijn, die de wereld vertegenwoordigen en vormgeven.

Uit Hoofdstuk 3 (blz. 97 & 98):

” De leraren, de goeroes, de mahatmas, de filosofen, allemaal hebben ze ons op een dwaalspoor gebracht, want we hebben onze problemen niet echt opgelost, ons leven is niet veranderd. We zijn nog dezelfde rampzalige, ongelukkige, met verdriet beladen mensen. Het eerste wat je moet doen is dus: nooit een ander volgen, ook de spreker niet. Probeer nooit via een ander te ontdekken hoe je gedrag moet zijn, hoe je moet leven. Want wat een ander je vertelt is niet jouw leven. Als je je op een ander verlaat of van een ander afhankelijk bent, zal je misleid worden. Maar als je het gezag van de goeroe, de filosoof, de theoreticus, – of ze nu communist of theoloog zijn – afwijst, kan je jezelf bekijken; dan kan je het antwoord vinden. ”

Krishnamurti examines with characteristic objectivity and insight the expressions of what we are pleased to call our culture, our education, religion, politics and tradition; and he throws much light on such basic emotions as ambition, greed and envy, the desire for security and the lust for power – all of which he shows to be deteriorating factors in human society.

Right Living in Modern Society

By Prof. P. Krishna.

126 Pages | Uitgegeven in 1995 | Softcover | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland, Amsterdam | ISBN: 9061750717.

This book is a verbatim account of eight lectures delivered by prof. P. Krishna in 1992 and 1993 on the subject of right living in modern society. Primarily based on the teachings of Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895 – 1986), these lectures focus on the following issues: what is it that divides us?, our relationship to the world, our relationship to ourselves, our responsibility towards children and ways of creating the right learning environment.

If you ask me to list the major problems that modern society, or mankind, in its present state is facing, I would say that the tendency in human beings to form groups – either national groups or religious groups or caste groups or racial groups – and create division of mankind, then feel not for the whole of mankind, but only for the particular group to which one belongs, is by far the greatest problem facing us, because it does give us some sort of a feelings of security to belong to a group. We must examine whether it is real security or some kind of illusory feeling of security, which comes because we are not farsighted enough, we are not looking deeply enough. I would say this division in mankind is perhaps the most major problem and the greatest cause of violence and suffering in modern society.

From Chapter 8 – ‘Right Living in Modern Society: Creating the Right Learning Environment’ (p. 126):

” In the field of academics the teachers may know more than the students and they can transfer their knowledge. But in this field, as human beings struggling to discover the Art of Living rightly, we, grown-ups, are not different from the children. Knowledge does not help us to live rightly. Therefore we must inquire together and learn together, as friends, not as instructors and trainees. Only a school that cares both for the academic development and for the Art of Right Living, can impart right education to children and fulfil our responsibility towards the next generation. “

To me, the true value of any book lies only in the questions that it raises, not in the answers that it offers. If the reader finds in this book even  few questions he wishes to dwell on, I shall feel amply rewarded. That is the only purpose of this book. (from the foreword)
A quote from the book:

The Nature of the New Mind

276 pages | Paperback | Krishnamurti Foundation India, 2003

Addressing large international audiences in different parts of the world, Krishnamurti points out that the present crisis is not just what we perceive outwardly in society; it really lies in the unconscious, deep within oneself. So what is required is not more knowledge or more collective action, but a totally new mind. And that is needed, says Krishnamurti, ‘to deal not only with the everlasting but also with the immediate problems of existence’. It is important to see the urgency of having such a mind now and not wait for time to bring it about.

112 pages | Paperback | Gollancz, 1992

This was the first volume of an unprecedented series of thematic selections from Krishnamurti’s works.

This Matter of Culture

224 pages | Paperback | Krishnamurti Foundation India, 2004

‘The function of education is to bring about a release of energy in the pursuit of goodness, truth, or God, which in turn makes the individual a true human being and therefore the right kind of citizen.’

‘It is also our problem to find out what God is, because that is the very foundation of our life. A house cannot stand for long without a proper foundation, and all the cunning inventions of man will be meaningless if we are not seeking out what is God or truth.’

Mind Without Measure – Talks in India 1982-83

216 pages | Paperback | Krishnamurti Foundation, 2005

From very ancient times, human beings have been taught to regard thought as the most powerful and perhaps the only instrument they have for dealing with life. Krishnamurti shatters this dearly held notion by declaring that the instrument of thought produces havoc within individuals and in the world at large. Thought, no doubt, has helped man to progress in functional areas, and it has its rightful place there. But in the psychological realm, the solutions it offers only create more problems.

auteur: Krishnamurti, J.
ISBN: 8187326514
Additional DescriptionMore Details

Developing this theme in this book, Krishnamurti shows how the instrument of thought is inadequate in tackling the basic emotions that generally underlie individual and collective action – violence, hurt, conflict, insecurity, pleasure, fear, sorrow and so on. He explains, in different contexts, how thought itself creates and sustains these problems. ‘So is there a new instrument totally different from thought’, he asks in these series of talks given in New Delhi, Calcutta, Madras and Bombay between October 1982 and January 1983.

Krishnamurti on Love and Loneliness

153 pages | Paperback | Krishnamurti Foundation India, 2004

Another volume in the series of ‘Theme books’, this is a compelling investigation of our intimate relationships with ourselves, others, and society. Krishnamurti suggests that ‘true relationship’ can come into being only when there is self-knowledge of the conditions which divide and isolate individuals and groups.

“It is only when the mind is not escaping in any form that it is possible to be in direct communion with that thing which we call loneliness, the alone, and to have communion with that thing, there must be affection, there must be love,” says Krishnamurti.
