' A brief occult survey of the vast power contained in man's mental principle. '

This brief, easy-to-read study concentrates on the hidden power latent in the human mind, which can do amazing things if properly activated and controlled. An in-depth understanding of this aspect of our nature should bring about a more compassionate metamorphosis of our attitude towards fellow beings, life itself and planet Earth. Western civilization recognizes the immense value of coming to know man as a 'holisitic entity', and of coming to terms with man's mind. The sages of the ancient East and their noteworthy disciple, Annie Besant, have been proven to be most intuitive concerning this unique principle in man.

Subjects discussed are:

  1. Training the mind
  2. Improving concentration
  3. Strengthening thought power
  4. Meditation
  5. Improving memory
  6. Thought transference
  7. Building the mental body
  8. Combining thoughts with others
  9. Achieving peace of mind.

From Chapter VIII - 'Obstacles to Concentration; Wandering Minds' (p. 93):

" The concentrated intelligence, the power of withdrawing outside the turmoil, mean immensely increased energy in work, mean steadiness, self-control, serenity; the man of meditation is the man, who wastes no time, scatters no energy, misses no opportunity. Such a man governs the events, because within him is the power whereof events are only the outer expression; he shares the divine life, and therefore shares divine power. " 

Annie Besant (1847-1933) led the fight for the rights of women and laborers in her native England; later she worked with Mahatma Gandhi and spearheaded India's struggle for freedom. Theosophist Joy Mills describes her as "a feminist before the movement for women's rights was fully launched; she stood for freedom when half the world was held in the bonds of colonialism." A student of India's spiritual traditions, Annie Besant was famed as an orator, author, and international President of the Theosophical Society.
