Science, Yoga and Theosophy

By several authors.

262 Pages | 1977 | Hardcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar.

The Theosophical Society was formed at New York, November 17, 1875, and incorporated in Madras, India, April 3, 1905. The three declared Objects are:

1. To form a nucleus of the Universal Brotherhood of Humanity, without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or colour.

2. To encourage the study of comparative religion, philosophy and science.

3. To investigate unexplained laws of nature and the powers latent in man.

From the Chapter ‘Scientific Alchemy – The Physics of a New Age’ (p. 9):

” Plato’s dream of the philosopher-king os perhaps realizing its most practical actualization in the new physics: the union of the philosopher-scientist. The scientific method of the new physics is encompassing an imaginative wholeness, an indeterministic openness, that might best be conveyed by the language of poetry and philosophy, by the TAO. There is no dichotomy here between science and poetry; equation and verse together become a symbol for an expression of the reality of the universe. “

Science, Consciousness and the Paranormal (Blavatsky Lecture 1998)

By Prof. Emeritus Arthur Ellison (1920 – 2000).

34 Pages | Blavatsky Lecture 1988 | A6 Softcover | Theosophical Books Limited | No ISBN.

This Blavatsky Lecture was delivered at the Summer School of The Theosophical Society in England, The University of Leicester, Sunday 26th of July, 1998.

In this lecture, Professor Emeritus Ellison will discuss his approach to the Theosophical descriptive model of the universe at all its levels and consider the way, it seems to him, members were evidently intended to approach this model as indicated by the Three Objects. He will consider and briefly review the work of the Science Group, some of which was reviewed in the book Psychism and the Unconscious Mind (First Quest edition 1968, second edition 1974), and possible lessons to be drawn from the Group’s subsequent demise. Finally, he will briefly consider the activities of other bodies, who have taken up the pioneering research on Third Object matters dropped by the Science Group.

From page 10:

” The Buddha and the Theosophical Masters said, that we were not to believe something because it was written in some book that men considered sacred, nor indeed presumably in any other book. So it seemed to me right to find a good medium and try a séance. (Such things are forbidden in the Esoteric Section). This was to be a piece of open-minded scientific research and of course psychical research is an important part of the Third Object of the Theosophical Society. To my delight my wife came through ‘like a bomb’, as the saying goes, enormously glad to be able to reassure us all that she was in good shape and happy. She referred to many things related to her interests and there seemed to me little doubt that it was indeed she. The script – received by automatic writing – gave her relative exactly what he needed to continue his life. He never needed another communication from her. “

Essentials of Occult Chemistry and Modern Science

By H.J. Arnikar, Ph.D.

122 Pages | First edition 2000 | Hardcover | The Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170594065.

The very words ‘occult’ and ‘chemistry’ would seem to most people to be strange bedfellows. However, Professor Arnikar, a distinguished scientist with an international reputation in radiochemistry research and chemical education and teacher of renown has written a fascinating book, which will be of interest to layman and scientist alike.

It presents the remarkable results of the pioneer occult chemists over the period 1890-1933. The book highlights equally their conformity to or divergences from the findings of modern science. The treatment is as scientifically rigorous as it is warmly appreciative.

Occult Chemistry was published by Annie Besant (1847 – 1933) and Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934), (Adyar), 1908 and 1919. Eastern philosophy firmly believes that every person has latent powers, which developed by yogic training under a qualified Master can equip him with various extraordinary powers or siddhis as they are called. One siddhi is to be able to see the smallest of the small by the naked eye unaided. Besant and Leadbeater could point with uncanny accuracy to certain findings in the field of atomic structure and nuclear constitution, which decades later experimental scientists endorsed in the main.

From Chapter 5 – ‘Contributions of Contemporary Scientists to Occult Chemistry’ (p. 107):

” Who is to investigate the latent powers in man? “

” Our Elders have always sounded a word of caution against the overzealous enthusiasts from dabbling into the grave esoteric truths of life, while still lacking in necessary mental discipline. To acquire this last, there is no way other than devoted study at the lotus feet of the ‘Master’. Before the period of apprenticeship is over, one may be tempted to test unauthorizedly one’s skills, knowledge and capabilities to know if they are not adequate to acquire one of the siddhis, as the aṇimā. “
