Reincarnation, Fact or Fallacy? – An Examination and Exposition of the Doctrine of Rebirth.

87 Pages | First Edition 1951, 7th printing 1980 | Hard cover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar

From the remotest time, belief in the doctrine of Reincarnation has proved an inspiration to countless people, while to others it has been a violation of true religious teaching. In this little book, Mr Geoffrey Hodson, who studied the subject carefully, discusses basic questions of life such as suffering and divine justice, human destiny, child prodigies and the remembrance of past lives in the light of the Ancient wisdom, to show that the doctrine is in fact, a fact and not fallacy.

Mr Hodson wrote about forty theosophical books based on his occult investigations, and was awarded the Subba Row Medal in 1954 for his contributions to theosophical literature.

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.

The Wisdom of the Upanishad-s

By Annie Besant

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” . . .

Zeven Sferen – Theosofie als leidraad voor psychologie en levensbeschouwing

253 blz., Index, Literartuurlijst | Paperback | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland, 1998

In Zeven Sferen treft de lezer een overzicht aan van het wereldbeeld van de theosofie, waarbij veel aandacht wordt besteed aan recente ontwikkelingen in de psychologie, met name de transpersoonlijke psychologie.

auteur: Visser, F.
ISBN: 9789061750703
Additional DescriptionMore Details

“Precies de heldere analyse die we nodig hebben.”- Ken Wilber Frank Visser is bekend geworden als biograaf van Ken Wilber. In dit boek blijken de theorieën niet klakkeloos door de biograaf over genomen te worden. Als er meer is dan de materiële wereld van geboorte, leven en dood, hoe ziet de werkelijkheid er dan hoogstwaarschijnlijk uit? Kunnen we op deze vraag een helder en tegelijkertijd diepgaand antwoord krijgen? In de theosofische traditie wordt deze vraag bevestigend beantwoord. Vragen over het wezen van de mens, het leven na de dood of het proces van spirituele ontwikkeling worden in deze traditie behandeld op een manier die de moderne mens aanspreekt. In Zeven Sferen treft de lezer een overzicht aan van het wereldbeeld van de theosofie, waarbij veel aandacht wordt besteed aan recente ontwikkelingen in de psychologie, met name de transpersoonlijke psychologie. Deze tak van de psychologie probeert een spiritueel mensbeeld te formuleren, dat recht doet aan de diepste ervaringen die menselijkerwijs mogelijk zijn. De theosofie beschikt over een begrippenkader dat het moderne onderzoek tot steun kan zijn. Daarnaast worden in dit boek aspecten van het theosofische wereldbeeld belicht die meestal onbesproken blijven. Zo wordt de wereld van de religies op een nieuwe manier in kaart gebracht, worden filosofische vragen die verband houden met de diepte-dimensie van de werkelijkheid opgeworpen, en komt tenslotte op genuanceerde wijze de waarheidsvraag aan bod.

Our Last Adventure – A Commonsense Guide to Death and After

100 Pages | 1985 | Paperback | Theosophical Publishing House, London

In a charming, chatty style, this British author shares his thoughtful insights on death and the life beyond.

From the Prologue:

” There is a journey ahead that none of us can avoid – our last adventure, death and beyond. If you travel abroad, it is wise to take a map and a guide to the country. Most people face death totally unprepared. Some are scared and refuse even to think or talk about it; others are resigned or willing to go when their time comes; very, very few have any clear idea of what lies ahead… In the chapters which follow, I have tried to write a commonsense guide to the next world. “

The Smaller Buddhist Catechism

41 Pages | First edition 1902, first reprint 2004 | Paperback | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar

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 . . . “

Speurtocht naar het Zelf

75 blz. | Paperback | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland, 1987 – ISBN 9789061750239

Dit boekje bestaat uit vier toespraken:

  2. Ken uw ware zelf
  3. Reïncarnatie
  4. Heerst er gerechtigheid in de wereld?
auteur: Layton, E./Layton, F.

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.

The Bhagavad Gītā (lit. Song of the Lord) is one of the most important basic texts for the study of Hinduism, and has attracted the attention and admiration of thinkers throughout the world.

Reïncarnation

95 Pages |Twelfth reprint, 1999 (first edition 1892) | Hard cove (Manual) | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar

From the Preface:

´Few words are needed in sending this little book out into the world. It is a Manual designed to meet the public demand for a simple exposition of Theosophical teachings. Some have complained that our literature is at once too abstruse, too technical, and too expensive for the ordinary reader, and it is our hope that the present series may succeed in supplying what is a very real want. Theosophy is not only for the learned; it is for all. Perhaps among those who in these little books catch their first glimpse of its teachings, there may be a few who will be led by them to penetrate more deeply into its philosophy, its science, and its religion, facing its abstruser problems with the student’s zeal and the neophyte’s ardour. But these Manuals are not written for the eager student, whom no initial difficulties can daunt; they are written for the busy men and women of the work-a-day world, and seek to make plain some of the great Truths that render life easier to bear and death easier to face. Written by servants of the Masters who are Elder Brothers of our race, they can have no other object than to serve our fellow-men´.

Liberation or Salvation

9 Pages |Reprint, 1961 | Booklet | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar

‘In the early days of Christianity, ere the mass of te unlearned had crushed out the Gnostic minority; ere the loss of the teaching of Reïncarnation had attached the everlasting fate of man to his conduct during a few brief years on earth; in those early days the word SALVATION had a grandiose meaning. It meant that the man who was saved possessed the knowledge of God which is Eternal Life; it meant that he had overcome death and achieved immortality; it meant that he had become a pillar in the Temple of God, to go out in reïncarnation no more’ […]

Karma

By Annie Besant.

82 pages | Second edition 2016 | Paperback | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar.

In response to public demand for a simple exposition of theosophical teachings, Annie Besant (1847 – 1933), designed a set of seven Theosophical manuals, and Karma is the fourth in that series. These were written for the busy men and women of the workday world, rather than the undaunted eager student, and seek to make plain and lucid some of the eternal truths, that render life easier to bear and death easier to face.

According to Master KH:

” Every thought of man upon being evolved . . . becomes . . . an active Intelligence for a longer or shorter periode proportionate with the original intensity of the cerebral action which generated it . . . Man is continually peopling his current in space with a world of his own . . . a current which reacts upon any sensitive or nervous organization, which comes in contact with it, in proportion to its dynamic intensity . . . [This is given] the name of ‘Karma’. The Adept evolves these shapes consciously; other men throw them off unconsciously. “

Theosophy – An Introductory Study Course

89 p. | 4th Edition 2007, original edition 1996 | A4 soft cover | Study course | Quest Books

This is a study course introducing Theosophy as presented by the Theosophical Society. Have you ever wondered about the ‘big’questions of life?

  • Who am I really?
  • Why is the world the way it is?
  • Where did I come from?
  • What am I doing here?
  • What comes next?
  • When will I find out all these things?

We human beings are curious about ourselves and the world around us. That curiosity appears especially in little children, who continually ask why? and what? As we grow older, we may learn to live with our unknowing and stop questions, at least overtly. But, being human, we have a passion for knowing the meaning of things and that passion cannot be wholly surpressed.

Vedanta Philosophy – Five Lectures on Reïncarnation (1908)

By Swami Abhedananda (1886 – 1936).

99 Pages | Photocopy of the Original 1908 edition | A4 Softcover | Kessinger Publication Company Ltd. | ISBN: 1564598861.

CONTENTS:

Chapter 1 – Reïncarnation

Chapter 2 – Heredity and Reïncarnation

Chapter 3 – Evolution and Reïncarnation

Chapter 4 – Which is Scientific, Resurrection or Reïncarnation?

Chapter 5 – Theory of Transmigration.

From Chapter 2 – ‘Heredity of Reïncarnation’ (p. 47):

” Those, who accept the truth of Reïncarnation do not blame their parents for their poor talents, or for not possessing extraordinary powers, but they remain content with their own lot, knowing that they have made themselves as they are to-day by their own thoughts and deeds in their previous incarnations. They understand the meaning of the saying ‘what thou sowest, mus thou reap’, and always endeavor to mould their future by better thoughts and better deeds. They explain all the inequalities and diversities of life and character by the law of ‘Karma’, which governs the process of Reïncarnation as well as the gradual evolution of the germs of life from lower to higher stages of existence. “
