The Voice of the Silence (AA Edition) 2nd repr.

By Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891).

236 Pages | Softcover | AA edition, 2nd repr. 2005 | The Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN 8170593719.

Dutch translation: De Stem van de Stilte, in: Drie Wegen, Eén Pad | Door Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895 – 1986), Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891) en Mabel Collins (1851 – 1927), vertaald door Louis Geertman en Ali Ritsema | Eerste druk 2006 | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland | ISBN: 9061750881.

The Voice of the Silence was published for the first time in 1889. Since then it has been reprinted numerous times and translated into many languages. It was H.P. Blavatsky’s most precious book and last great effort in this world. The last service rendered to Those, whose mouthpiece she was and to their work for the moral and mental upliftment of humanity. It is one of the world’s most inspiring books, a prose poem that moves us by an appeal to the divinest instincts of our nature.

From Fragment I, page 109:

” 18. This earth , O ignorant disciple, is but the dismal entrance leading to the twilight that precedes the the valley of true LIGHT – that LIGHT, which no wind can extinguish, that LIGHT, which burns without a wick or fuel.

19. Saith the Great Law: In order to become the KNOWER of ALL-SELF, thou hast first of Self to be the knower. To reach the knowledge of that Self, thou hast to give-up self to non-self, being to non-being, amd then thou canst repose between the wings of the Great Bird. Aye, sweet is rest between the wings of that which is not born, nor dies, but is the AUM throughout eternal ages. “

Joyful Gnosis: Gnostic Light on Blavatsky’s Wisdom

By Stephan A. Hoeller.

25 Pages | Sunday July 27th, 2003 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, London | No ISBN.

The Blavatsky Lecture delivered at the Summer School of The Theosophical Society in England, the University of Loughborough.

An exploration of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky’s (1831 – 1891) teachings in the light of the embodiment of the Ancient Wisdom known as Gnosticism. The title of this lecture alludes to three specific topics:

  1. The teachings of the foundress and principal teacher of what has been called Modern Theosophy.
  2. The earlier embodiment of the Ancient Wisdom Tradition known as Gnosticism.
  3. The character of this same Wisdom tradition described here as ‘joyful Gnosis’.

From page 5:

” Gnosticism is the teaching based on Gnosis, the knowledge of transcendence arrived at by way of interior, intuitive means. Although Gnosticism thus rests on personal religious experience, it is a mistake to assume all such experience results in Gnostic recognitions. It is nearer the truth to say that Gnosticism expresses a specific religious experience, an experience that does not lend itself to the language of theology or philosophy, but which is instead closely affinitized to, and expresses itself through, the medium of myth. Indeed, one finds that most Gnostic scriptures take the forms of myths. The term ‘myth’ should not be taken to mean ‘stories that are not true’, but rather, that the truths embodied in these myths are of a different order from the dogmas of theology or the statements of philosophy. “

The Letters of H.P. Blavatsky to A.P. Sinnett

By Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891) with an introduction by A. Trevor Barker.

404 Pages | First published in 1925, 1973 facsimile edition | Hardcover | Theosophical University Press, Pasadena, California | ISBN: 9780911500233.

There are several references to the writing of The Secret Doctrine, which show to how great an extent the Masters were themselves responsible for that work. That is why the teaching of H.P.B. ‘remains for us the test and criterion of Theosophy, ‘ by which all other teaching on the subject must be judged.

From the Introduction (p. ix):

” After all, if the Masters do not know what Theosophy is, no one does, because in its essence, purity and completeness it is alone contained in the secret teaching of which the Guardians are the Masters Themselves. That teaching, as stated by H.P.B., ‘ is not the fancy of one of or several isolated individuals, but the fruit of work of thousands of generations of Adept Seers, ‘through who it was handed down from the first Divine Instructors of our Humanity. It is the substratum and basis of all the world-religions and philosophies, but its doctrines are the exclusive possession of none of them. It was the mission of Madame Blavatsky, under the instructions of those Adepts, to give to the world selected portions of that archaic teaching. It should be remembered that an Adept – a Master, is one who has achieved immortality, and therefore has the power to perceive Truth as it is and at will to reflect it without distortion. “

Secret Doctrine References Reprinted: A 1977 List

By an anonymous author.

22 Pages | Published in 1977 | Softcover | Wizards Bookshelf, San Diego | No ISBN.

Two-hundred titles out of the 750 hard cover books cited in Helena Petrovna Blavatsky’s (1831 – 1891) The Secret Doctrine (1888) are reprinted or reset and made available (again) in 1977. The reason for the book list in this little publication should be obvious. It is not quite an easy way to read The Secret Doctrine! Few have a fit background in the basic fundamentals of languages like Greek, French, Hebrew, and Sanskrit plus some German and Russian. This altogether, plus a basic view of ancient religions, that only can come from reading those works connected with each. This grand view seems fundamental to discern the various terms, pantheons, deities and the rest.

Despite the effort necessary to unveil the teachings of The Secret Doctrine, it represents an unique journey for every reader. This little publication mentions the works, that are cited in the work. Although the list of references is not complete, may it be of support. And may it allow any reader of The Secret Doctrine to go deeper . . .

Dynamics of the Psychic World – Comments by H.P. Blavatsky

Comments by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891) compiled by Lina Psaltis.

132 Pages | 1972, Second reprint 2006 | Hard cover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170594863.

Psychic phenomena, magic, hypnotism, spiritualism, planes of perception, dreams, and spiritual progress – these are some of the subjects discussed in this collection of excertps from the writings of one of the most famous occultists of history:

In this small book the compiler has drawn together from various sources some of the important and interesting statements made by H.P. Blavatsky more than a century ago on subjects, which are arousing wide interest today. Her comments not only reveal something of her profound knowledge and wisdom, but are also fascinating, informative and relevant. They contain valuable advice to those who would dabble in psychic realms without being aware of their dangers and pitfalls.

From page 104/105:

” The key in each degree is the ‘aspirant himself’. It is not the fear of God, which is the beginning of Wisdom, but the knowledge of SELF which is WISDOM ITSELF. How grand and true appears, thus, to the student of Occultism who has commenced to realize some of the foregoing truths, the answer given by the Delphic Oracle to all who came seeking after Occult Wisdom – words repeated and enforced again and again by the wise Socrates: MAN KNOW THYSELF . . . ”

The Secret Doctrine – Abridged and Annotated by Michael Gomes

By Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891), abridged and annotated by Michael Gomes.

257 Pages | Published in 2009 | Softcover | Tarcher/ Penguin Books | ISBN: 9781585427086.

The Secret Doctrine, Helena Petrovna Blavatsky’s masterwork on the origin and evolution of the universe and humanity itself, is arguably the most famous, and perhaps the most influential, occult book ever written. Published since 1888 only in expensive, two-volume editions of some 1400 pages, it has long eluded the grasp of modern readers- until now.

auteur: Blavatsky, H.P./Gomes, M. (ed.)
ISBN: 9781585427086
Additional DescriptionMore Details

This single-volume edition, abridged and annotated by historian and Theosophical scholar Michael Gomes, places the ideas of The Secret Doctrine within reach of all who are curious. In particular, Gomes provides a critical sounding of the book’s famous stanzas on the genesis of life and the cosmos – mysterious passages that Blavatsky said originated from a primeval source and which form the heart of The Secret Doctrine. Gomes scrupulously scales down the book’s key writings on symbolism to their essentials, and offers notes and a glossary to illuminate arcane references. His historical and literary introduction casts new light on some of the book’s sources and on the career of its brilliant and elusive author, one of the most intriguing personages of the nineteenth century. At once compact and representative of the work as a whole, this new edition of The Secret Doctrine brings unprecedented accessibility to the key esoteric classic of the modern era.

78 Pages | First edition 1977, reprint 1990 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 0835675351.

Dutch translation: Aan de Bron van de Occulte Traditie – Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland | ISBN 9061750490.

This publication represents an historical introduction to the Two-Volume 1978 Edition of The Secret Doctrine. The epoch-making work known as The Secret Doctrine is the magnum opus of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891). Its subtitle is: ‘The Synthesis of Science, Religion and Philosophy’.

The First Volume of The Secret Doctrine came off the Press on 20 October 1888. This fact is recorded by Richard Harte, then in London, and about to leave for India. In a set of the original edition (first printing), now in the archives of the present writer, there is, on the half-title page, a note in blue pencil signed by Richard Harte, which says:

” This is the first copy ever issued. I got it from Printer by special Messenger on the morning of the 20 Oct. ’88 as I was leaving the house 17 Lansdowne Road, with Col. Olcott for India (Col. went personally via Naples), The Second Vol. followed me to India. “ – R.H.

English original: Rebirth of the Occult Tradition – How the Secret Doctrine of H.P. Blavatsky was written – The Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 0835675351.

Dit werk is geschreven als historische inleiding op de editie van The Secret Doctrine die werd uitgegeven als onderdeel van de Collected Writings of H.P. Blavatsky.

Helena Petrovna Blavatsky werd op 31 juli 1831 te Ekaterinoslaw in Zuid-Rusland geboren. Al vroeg besefte ze dat ze voorbeschikt was om haar leven te wijden aan de studie en toepassing van het occultisme. In 1851 ontmoette ze voor het eerst haar geestelijke leraar, Meester Morya. Hij sprak met haar over het werk dat haar wachtte, waarna ze zijn leiding aanvaardde zowel bij haar innerlijke ontwikkeling als bij haar openbaar werk.

Na vele omzwervingen, waarbij ze o.a. Tibet bezocht, stichtte ze in New York met Henry Steel Olcott (1832 – 1907), William Quan Judge (1851 – 1896) en negentien anderen The Theosophical Society. Hier schreef ze ook Isis Unveiled. Op verzoek van een aantal goede vrienden vestigde ze zich in 1887 in London, waar ze The Secret Doctrine voltooide. Dit boek zag in 1888 het licht. H.P. Blavatsky stierf in London op 8 mei 1891.

Behalve haar hoofdwerken en talloze tijdschriftartikelen, moeten nog genoemd worden haar Sleutel tot de Theosofie en De Stem van de Stilte. Zoals elders vermeld, verschijnt haar hele oeuvre in H.P. Blavatsky, Collected Writings, verzorgd door Boris de Zirkoff.

Blavatsky, verzorgd door Boris de Zirkoff. Boris de Zirkoff werd geboren in Rusland. Na de revolutie studeerde hij aan verscheidene universiteiten vooral talen en de klassieken. Nadat hij naar de Verenigde Staten was geëmigreerd en daar genaturaliseerd was, vestigde hij zich op het hoofdkwartier van de Point Loma Theosophical Society bij San Diego, Californië, waar hij achttien jaar werkte voornamelijk op literair gebied. Sinds 1925 verzorgde hij H.P. Blavatsky, Collected Writings, waarvan veertien delen en een index zijn uitgekomen. Verder was hij hoofredacteur van Theosophia, een onafhankelijk driemaandelijks tijdschrift, dat in Los Angeles werd gepubliceerd. Hier heeft hij een theosofisch informatiecentrum gevestigd. In de genoemde serie Collected Writings verscheen in 1972 een herdruk van Isis Unveiled en in 1979 een van The Secret Doctrine. Hiervoor heeft de Zirkoff het merendeel van de honderden citaten en verwijzingen geverifieerd en waar nodig verbeterd, maar Blavatsky’s woorden onaangetast gelaten.

The Human and the Divine – Nine-fold Relationship to Śrī Piļļai Lokācārya and Madame Blavatsky

By N.C. Ramanujachary.

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

The lives of Śrī Piļļai Lokācārya and Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891) were irradiated by the Great Ones who are ever seeking for interpreters of Occult Knowledge in the outer world . . . Their contribution and catholicity of thought remain a source of perennial inspiration to the true aspirants of Divine Wisdom.

From Section C – ‘Present and Future of the Thoughts: (p. 136):

” The teachings of any philosopher necessary are expressions of the Eternal Wisdom. Each one has dealt with the reality of the world, the organic relation of all life to the Divine Principle, the workings within the Cosmos, which are all matters of great appeal to a rational human. Stressing the solidarity of man, aiding him and his mind to the cosmic Mind, and leading each to the inevitable state of embracing the whole of the Universe has been the effort of both PL and HPB in their own chosen way. ”

Madame Blavatsky Unveiled

By Leslie Price.

44 Pages | First edition February 1986 | Softcover; (paper) leaflet | Theosophical History Centre, London | ISBN: 0948753005.

A new discussion of the most famous investigation of The Society for Psychical Research.

Founded in 1985, Theosophical History Centre seeks to promote interest in the history of the Theosophical Society and related fields. The paper was first presented on 12 April 1983 and it was subsequently made available in draft in both the parapsychological and theosophical communities.

From page 1:

” Madame Blavatsky, the co-founder of the T.S. was born in 1831. In ‘Spiritual Magazine’, April 1872, she was reported to be directing a Spiritualist society in Cairo, Egypt and after her arrival in New York in 1873 reports of paranormal phenomena around her began to appear regularly in the Spiritualist papers. She was corresponding secretary of the T.S., founded in New York in 1873, of which Col. Henry Olcott was president until his death in 1907. The two chief founders left the U.S.A. for India in 1878 via London, and transferred T.S. headquarters first to Bombay and in 1882 to Adyar. It was during a visit by the founders to Europe in May 1884 that the S.P.R. Committee was formed. The S.P.R, itself was only two years old, and the personnel of Spiritualism, Theosophy and Psychical Research were not then as polarised as they later became. “

The Right Angle – H.P. Blavatsky on Masonry in Her Theosophical Writings

Compiled by G.A. Farthing.

84 Pages | 2003| Softcover |Theosophical Publishing House, London –  in collaboration with The Blavatsky Trust

These extracts from Helena Petrovna Blavatsky’s (H.P.B. ‘s) voluminous works are intended to give some information about Masonry and the flavour of her thinking on the subject as she dealt with it over the period of her writing from 1875 – 1891.

H.P.B. was exposed to Masonry via relatives and friends in her formative years, and later many of her associates were Masons. Among them were some, including Colonel Olcott (1832 – 1907), who helped in the founding of the Theosophical Society and became its first President. At the time of the founding of the Theosophical Society, however, there had been no public exposition of Theosophy. Later, there were intimations of it in Isis Unveiled and in many of H.P.B’s early writings. The great comprehensive teaching only came out in The Secret Doctrine published in 1888.

The significance of this in the matter of Masonry vis-a-vis Theosophy is that with the publication of the theosophical teachings sometimes hitherto closely guarded occult secrets were made public for the first time. Against this, as the reader of the extracts will perceive, the really significant secrets of Masonry, relating to the nature and processes of Nature herself, had been lost from early times.

Het Onmogelijke Zoeken – Inleiding tot een Westerse Yoga

Door Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891) met memoires van Robert Bowen en commentaar van Henk Dubbink.

133 Pagina’s | Uitgegeven in 1980 | Softcover | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland, Utrecht | ISBN:  9061750520.

Tijdens haar laatste levensjaren heeft mevrouw H.P. Blavatsky (1831-1881) aan haar leerlingen aanwijzingen gegeven hoe je haar hoofdwerk “De Geheime Leer” zou kunnen lezen. Zij noemde de weg die zij wees en uitstippelde het ware yoga-pad voor het westen, het pad van de jnana-yoga. Studie, meditatief lezen en meditatie gaan hier hand in hand. Om te leven en te groeien heeft de menselijke geest breedte en diepte nodig en aanrakingspunten met de al-ziel, om tot deze te worden aangetrokken. Dit werkje kan de lezer helpen om leefwijzen en denkwijzen eigen te maken, die kunnen bijdragen aan het ontcijferen van spirituele waarden in de verschillende Schriften van de grote godsdiensten.

Afkomstig van Deel III – ‘Uit De Geheime Leer, Deel I; Samenvatting (blz. 52):

” Weinigen, wier licht helderder brandde, zijn van de ene oorzaak tot de volgende geleid, tot de geheimzinnige eerste – zij vonden dat er een eerste Beginsel moet bestaan . . . (J. Dryden, Religio Laici, 12 – 14).

Dit wordt ‘Substantie-beginsel’ genoemd, dit wordt ‘substantie’ op het gebied van het geopenbaard Universum – een illusie; het blijft een ‘beginsel’ in de begin- en eindeloze abstracte, zichtbare en onzichtbare Ruimte. Het is de alomtegenwoordige Werkelijkheid: niet persoonlijk, immers het bevat alles en alles. De onpersoonlijkheid ervan is het fundamentele begrip van het Systeem. ”

Het Bijzondere Leven en de Invloed van Helena Blavatsky – Stichster van de Moderne Theosofische Beweging (2de herziene druk 2008)

Door Sylvia Cranston (Anita Atkins) (1915 – 2000) en research assistent Carey Williams.

651 Pages | Eerste druk 1995, tweede herziene druk 2008; vertaling van de Engelse third and revised edition | Hardcover | Theosophical University Press Agency, Den Haag | ISBN: 9789070328719.

Engels origineel: HPB: The Extraordinary Life and Influence of Helena Blavatsky, Founder of the Modern Theosophical Movement | Published in 1993 | Path Pub. House, Sausalito, California; in cooperation with the Institute of Noetic Sciences | ISBN: 9780966211511.

Deze uitgebreide en zeer volledige biografie is het resultaat van 14 jaar onderzoek en schrijven, en geeft een fascinerend verslag van het leven en werk van Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891). Onschatbaar bronnenmateriaal, oorspronkelijk in het Russisch geschreven, werd speciaal voor dit boek vertaald.

H.P. Blavatksy was een van de stichters van de Theosophical Society in New York in 1875. In het Westen gaf ze een grote impuls door ideeën zoals karma, reïncarnatie, spirituele ontwikkeling en de zevenvoudige samenstelling van de mens meer bekendheid te geven; in het Oosten moedigde ze een heropleving van het oorspronkelijk hindoeïsme en boeddhisme aan. Haar geschriften waren, en zijn nog steeds, een bron van inspiratie voor veel kunstenaars, schrijvers, componisten, filosofen en wetenschappers.

Door haar wereldwijde reizen, contacten met verschillende mystieke tradities en hun adepten, en de ontwikkeling die zijzelf heeft doorgemaakt, was haar leven bijzonder boeiend. Ze streed krachtig tegen de verstarde en materialistische ideeën in religie en wetenschap. Haar leven stond in het teken van 1 belangrijk doel: om de tijdloze wijsheid opnieuw onder de aandacht te brengen en daardoor universele broederschap te versterken.

Afkomstig uit Hoofdstuk 4- ‘De Volgende Eeuw: van Yeats tot Thornton Wilder en verder’ (blz. 454):

” Dat de belangstelling voor Yeats voor HPB vanaf het begin serieus was, kan worden afgeleid uit enkelen van zijn brieven uit die periode. Hij schreef aan John O’Leary:

Kom haar opzoeken als je in Londen bent. Ze is de meest menselijke persoon die er is, ze is als een oude boerenvrouw en is volkomen toegewijd: haar hele leven bestaat alleen uit zitten in een grote stoel met een pen in haar hand. Al jarenlang schrijft ze 12 uur per dag. “

PREFACE

The articles on Helena Petrovna Blavatsky that appeared in the monthly magazine ‘Lucifer’, after her death in 1891, were published the same year in a Memorial Volume. In 1931, to commemorate the centenary of her birth, a reprint of that book, with some additional material, was published by The Blavatsky Association of London.

Both the earlier editions have long been 0ut of print. The present photo-offset reprint is being published in the year of the hundredth anniversary of her passing as a tribute to this greatest Theosophist of our age.

THE PUBLISHERS.

Bombay, 8th May 1991.

From page XI:

” The inspiration given by Madame Blavatsky has indeed been incalculable in regard to this inborn desire and determination to find the PATH, and to attain, at whatever cost, the realisation of the true SELF. For she showed, as has been shown from time immemorial, that the WAY lies within; that each man has the power to work out his own salvation without the intervention of any deity other than his own highest SELF. In the Doctrines of Reincarnation and Karma with which Madame Blavatsky familiarised the West, are to be found the arbiters of Man’s fate – wholly just, yet, when rightly understood, wholly merciful, and the ultimate appeasers of mortal sorrow. “

Index to The Secret Doctrine – Original 1888 Edition

By Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891).

172 Pages | Original Edition London 1888 | The Theosophy Company, Los Angeles | ISBN: 0938998021.

This Work I dedicate to all True Theosophists, in every Country and of every Race, For they called it forth, and for them it was recorded. – Dedication of The Secret Doctrine by H.P.B.

All references in this Index are to the Original Edition of The Secret Doctrine (London: 1988), and to its photographic facsimile reproduction by The Theosophy Company. Each subject is treated sequentially, beginning with the earliest statement in the first volume, followed by the other references in order throughout the two Volumes. Thus, the Index affords an abstract of every subject both in accordance with the author’s development of the text, and with the importance attached to it by her. What will be found most important of all by the student is the value to be derived from carefully going over all the references on any given subject.

It may be added, that to bring this long-needed adjunct to The Secret Doctrine within the reach of students at a moderate price, the voluntary labors of many of their Fellows in the great Cause of Theosophy and the Theosophical Movement have been given without stint. To all these helpers goes the grateful acknowledgment of

H.P.B. Speaks – Volume 2

By Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891), edited by Curuppumullage Jinarājadāsa (1875–1953)

181 Pages | First edition 1951, reprint 1986 | Hardcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 817059037X.

It is a strange series of events that letters written by H.P.B. to a friend of her youth, Prince Alexander Mihailovich Dondukov-Korsakoff – some of them written from the Adyar Headquarters – should finally find their resting place in the Archives of the Theosophical Society in Adyar.

From page 16:

” My dear prince, you are interested in my life? Yes, you are right, for never has one of your compatriots been led by his mocking destiny into more original and unexpected situations than I have; situations both terrible and grotesque; heights and depths; one day on the level of the stars beyond the solar system, the next day in bottomless abysses. Such is my life and my fate that stake on my rise and fall like drunken stock-brokers. I am now on the rise and by God I will remain there even though I should be obliged to allow my army of Theosophists to crown me Queen-Prophet of Ceylon or Assam- and this under the very nose of the English, of whom half in India adore me and the other half detest me! “

H.P.B. Speaks – Volume 1

By Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891), edited by Curuppumullage Jinarājadāsa (1875–1953)

248 Pages | First edition 1950, reprint 1986 | Hardcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170590361.

There exist in the Archives of the Theosophical Society at Adyar certain manuscripts of H.P.B. Among them all, the most interesting historically is her Diary for 1878, which is published in this work. Furthermore, letters written by H.P. Blavatsky  from 1875 onwards and some extracts from Scrapbook No. 1. are included.

From page 105:

” That I was called Heliona (not Helen as people call me) – a Greek name derived from that of the Sun-Helios- because (1st) there was an eclipse of the luminary on that day, who knew prophetically, one must infer, that it would be eclipsed for long years by the newly born babe, and also (2nd) because of the possibility it gave the clergy and missionaries of the 19th century to spell it with a double ‘ll’ (thus – Helliona) and assure the more readily their congregations that I was an imp of Hell . . . “

Drie Wegen, Eén Pad

Door Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895 – 1986), Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891) en Mabel Collins (1851 – 1927), vertaald door Louis Geertman en Ali Ritsema.

223 Pagina’s | Eerste druk 2006 | Hardcover | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland | ISBN: 9061750881.

English edition: Inspirations from Ancient Wisdom: At the Feet of the Master, Light on the Path, the Voice of the Silence | published in 1999 | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 978-0835607735.

Deze bundel omvat drie standaardwerken – drie ‘Gidsen’ voor het spirituele pad – op het gebied van spirituele ontwikkeling: De Stem van de Stilte, Licht op het Pad en Aan de Voeten van de Meester. De waarde van hun verschijning in de moderne wereld in de 19de, vroeg 20ste eeuw valt niet eenvoudig te omschrijven. Met gemak kan evenwel worden gezegd, dat zij mede aan de basis hebben gestaan van al wat men vandaag weet over de spirituele reis, het Pad, de verlichting, of de ultieme bevrijding uit het bestaan van aardse beperkingen. Zij geven lessen over ethiek, over de universeel geldende wet van compassie, over karma – of de wet van evenwicht – over hoe te handelen in onze zoektocht naar spiritualiteit.

Hun doel beperkt zich niet tot een algemeen gevoel van welzijn, maar is uiteindelijk om een omvattend beeld te geven van de heiligheid van het leven en een helpende hand te zijn voor de innerlijke mens, die worstelt om zijn ware gedaante aan de wereld te tonen.

Afkomstig van blz. 223:

LIEFDE

” Wachtend op het Woord van de Meester,

Uitziend naar het Verborgen Licht;

Luisterend om zijn bevelen op te vangen

In het heetst van de strijd;

Zijn kleinste teken ziend

Over de hoofden van het gewoel;

Zijn zwakste fluistering horend

Boven het luidste aardse gezang. “

Additional DescriptionMore Details

De waarde van de verschijning van deze drie werken in de moderne wereld in de negentiende, vroeg twintigste eeuw valt niet eenvoudig te omschrijven. Met gemak kan evenwel worden gezegd dat zij mede aan de basis hebben gestaan van al wat men vandaag weet over de spirituele reis, het Pad, de verlichting, of de ultieme bevrijding uit het bestaan van aardse beperkingen. Zij geven lessen over ethiek, over de universeel geldende wet van compassie, over karma – of de wet van evenwicht – over hoe te handelen in onze zoektocht naar spiritualiteit. Hun doel beperkt zich niet tot een algemeen gevoel van welzijn, maar is uiteindelijk om een omvattend beeld te geven van de heiligheid van het leven en een helpende hand te zijn voor de innerlijke mens die worstelt om zijn ware gedaante aan de wereld te tonen.
