The concept of Deva-Man is both intriguing and immense; intriguing, because much of it still remains a mystery and what information is available is often carefully veiled; immense, because it appertains to the whole of man and to his relationship with nature and the Universe. […] What does ‘deva’ mean? The word is derived from the Sanskrit meaning ‘to shine’ – hence the ‘shining ones’, the ‘resplendent ones’. But the term is used very loosely and in Hindu Scriptures, for instance, may refer to all life which is invisible. It is suggested too, that devic life is the sum total of of substance itself, the basis of all manifestation, or, in other words, Spirit-Matter. It refers to a whole range of life that is evolving ‘pari passu’ with the human.

From page x:

” If we will but scan the records of history, legend and myth we can see the parts, which they played in the childhood of the race. We find records of these angelic beings, and their connection with man, in all the sacred scriptures of the world . . . “

” In the future, they will definitely take in charge the guidance of man’s evolution along special lines, and will constantly aid and instruct him. ” – From: Theos. Vol. 40, p. 186).

The Kingdom of the Gods

By Geoffrey Hodson (1886 – 1983).

273 Pages | First edition, 14th reprint 2014, incl. illustrations | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 9788170592921.

In this most unusual book Geoffrey Hodson, one of the greatest occultists of our times, gives a fascinating account of evolution as it relates to a kingdom of nature parallel to man, namely the kingdom of the angelic hosts, known in the East as the kingdom of the Deva-s or ‘the Shining Ones’.

Every religion has its Angels and Archangels. Legends, myths and folklore of every country throughout the world and in all ages speak of Angels and Nature-Spirits, Spirits of the mountains, clouds and rivers, and of mischievous imps, which delight in playing pranks on human beings. Yet very little specific information is available about them or their functions and activities.

The graphic descriptions of the various Deva-s: of water, of fire, of mountains and seas, of trees and plants, of music, of individual nations      together with colourful illustrations of their forms as seen by clairvoyant vision, lead one unconsciously into a wonderful experience of the ‘Comradeship of the Angels’.

From page 243:

” The planetary World Mother is conceived in certain Schools of occult philosophy as a highly-evolved Archangel Representative and Embodiment on earth of the Feminine Aspect of Deity. She is also thought of as an Adept Official in the Inner Government of the World, in whom all the highest qualities of womanhood and motherhood shine forth in their fullest perfection. Since She is beyond all limitation or form, no picture can truly represent Her. “

Additional DescriptionMore Details

The Kingdom of the Gods is based on knowledge revealed in occult books like The Secret Doctrine of H.P. Blavatsky and Clairvoyant investigations by occultists like Annie Besant, C.W. Leadbeater and the author himself. As to the proof of existence of these invisible beings the author points out that, while there can be no demonstrable proof of the fruits of mystical experience, test by personal research is possible and he says, ‘That test I have attempted to apply, and this book is in part a record of my own findings’.
