Hidden Wisdom in the Holy Bible – Volume I (Abridgement)

By Geoffrey Hodson (1886 – 1983).

214 Pages | A Quest Original 1993, an abridgement of the Theosophical classic | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835606902.

Geoffrey Hodson uncovers new meaning in the Holy Bible in this revised edition of a Theosophical classic. Many biblical stories are allegorical and were never meant to be taken literally, according to the author. This first volume of a two-volume abridgement  of Hodson’s monumental work explains and illustrates:

  • How a literal reading of the Bible misses rich meaning concealed in the stories.
  • How biblical symbols were used to encode esoteric truths.
  • How the parable of the Prodigal Son illustrates the Soul’s cycle of forthgoing and return.
  • How the life of Christ can be viewed as an initiatory journey.

Geoffrey Hodson was an internationally-known clairvoyant, who spent much of his life as a lecturer for the Theosophical Society. He is the author of The Brotherhood of Angels and Men, The Call to the Heights, and Clairvoyant Investigations.

From Chapter 6 – ‘The Reality behind the Shadow (p. 52):

” The Bible is found to be capable of many interpretations, wisdom being concealed within it layer upon layer. The outer layer is pseudohistory, local and temporal. The inner layers consist of universal eternal truths. Among the earliest people there moved men and women, who were not less informed than ourselves concerning the mysteries of life, but more so. They had been drawn near to the Adept teachers and had been received by them as Initiates of the Greater Mysteries. These are the inspired authors of the world’s scriptures, cosmogonical and esoteric legends, and myths. They saw outer, temporal events, beings and  and things as mirrors of eternal verities.

Egyptian practice may provide us with an illustration. In that country the scarab beetle was intimately associated with the creative Deity, one of whose titles was Khepera. Why this association of a lowly insect with the creative Lord of all? The life habits of the scarab suggest an answer, This beetle encloses its egg, its seed of life, in a ball of mud, rolls the ball to a sunny spot and leaves it to the warming, hatching influence of the sun. Ultimately, the egg hatches and brings forth a larva, which finds itself surrounded by its necessary food. Consuming this, it passed through its transformations and ultimately emerges as the winged scarab beetle to become in its turn a parent of further eggs.  The creative Logos produces from within itself the seed-thought of the universe-to-be . . . “

The Etheric Double – The Health Aura

By Arthur Edward Powell (1882 – 1969).

156 Pages | First published in 1925, 1969, 1979, second edition, first reprint 2015 | Hardcover | The Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 9788170595632.

This classic tekst has long been used as a resource book by students and scholars of astral phenomena. It’s subject is the subtle body, which all human beings possess, physical in nature but invisible to ordinary eyes. Of interest to healers, body workers, and all students of esoteric lore, Powell’s discussion of the anatomy of the subtle body, its energy centres and functions, is perceptive and comprehensive.  The others in the series are: The Mental Body, The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena, The Causal Body and the Ego and The Solar System.

From Chapter I – ‘General Description’ (p.3):

” It is important to notice, that the dense body and the Etheric Double vary together as to their quality; hence one who sets himself deliberately to purify his dense body, at the same time automatically refines its etheric counterpart. Into the composition of the Etheric Double must enter something of all the different grades of etheric matter, but the proportions may vary greatly, and are determined by several factors, such as the race, sub-race, and type of man, as well as by his individual karma. “

Introduction to Occult Chemistry

By Dr. M. Srinivasan.

28 Pages | First edition 2002; this booklet is an edited version of a three-part article, which first appeared in the Sunday Magazine Section of The Hindu newspaper during Oct.-Nov. 1994 | Booklet | The Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170593638.

‘ The amazing phenomenon of extra-sensory perception of nuclear structure and subatomic particles. ‘

This work deals with the extraordinary saga of the clairvoyant investigations of the structure of atoms and subatomic particles carried out by the two eminent theosophists Annie Besant (1847 – 1933) and Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934), around the turn of the 19th century. Besant and Leadbeater possessed clairvoyant powers and were persuaded by Alfred Percy Sinnett (1840 – 1921), a close friend, to employ their psychic powers to try and find out if there existed an ultimate constituent particle or atomic building block of which all matter is composed. This quest, which began in Aug. 1895, was pursued by them on and off for almost 40 years, right until Besant’s demise in 1933. Employing their remarkable psychic faculties, the two theosophists embarked on an ambitious programma of investigating and documenting in detail the structure of the atoms of all the elements of the periodic table, besides several crystals, chemical compounds and complex molecules.

Esoteric Writings of T. Subba Row

By Tallapragada Subba Row (1856 – 1890).

575 Pages |First edition 1951, 1st to 3rd reprints 1972 – 1994, 2nd edition 2002 | Softcover | The Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170593646.

This collection of articles on varied and unusual subjects by a briljant young Brahman scholar, lawyer, mystic and occultist, is a mine of information. During the brief years before his death in 1890, author Swami T. Subba Row not only wrote these articles, but also gave a series of lectures at the annual Convention of the Theosophical Society, later published as Philosophy of the Bhagavad-Gītā. In his early years, Subba Row did not show any exceptional signs of mystical knowledge, but in his twenties knowledge welled up from within. ‘It was as though a storehouse of occult experience, long forgotten, had been suddenly opened to him’.

The book will prove to be an asset for students of mystical philosophy and the reader will find fascinating information about for instance:

  • The twelve signs of the zodiac
  • The age of Lord Buddha’s death
  • Nadigrantham-s
  • Hatha yoga
  • The mystic significance of Indian places of pilgrimage
  • And many other occult subjects . . .

About the author:

T Subba Row was an outstanding figure of the Theosophical Society in its early years in India. Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891) had originally planned the collaboration of Subba Row with her in the production of The Secret Doctrine, but this plan did not fructify. Colonel Henry Steel Olcott (1832 – 1907) has paid the tribute to Subba Row, that ‘there was none equal to him in bright genius for grasping the spirit of Ancient Wisdom’. Subba Row’s philosophy was essentially Vedāntic, although he was also greatly stimulated by the Theosophy of Madame Blavatsky. His meeting with her also resulted in his obtaining conscious touch with his Master.

Cycles of Eternity – An Overview of the Ageless Wisdom

By Tim Wyatt.

111 Pages | First published in 2016 | Paperback | Leeds Theosophical Society in association with Firewheel Books, West Yorkshire | ISBN: 9780956145147.

Everything in the universe, seen and unseen, is alive, connected and on an eternal evolutionary journey. Universal laws and inter-connected ideas, pre-dating and underpinning science, philosophy and religion, explain the ev0lution and workings of both the universe and human beings. This is known as The Ageless Wisdom, or Theosophy. This ancient knowledge offers a compelling, comprehensive and convincing view of ourselves and the cosmos, and yet it is entirely modern in its outlook.

Cycles of Eternity explains how and why this is important to you.

From Chapter 4. ‘Infinite Cycles’, p. 76:

” Central to the Ageless Wisdom, is that all life proceeds in regular cycles of activity and rest. Some occur in a fraction of a second. Others take trillions of years to complete. These life-cycles all have exactly the same pattern: birth, growth, maturity, decline and ‘death’ followed by re-birth. Nothing stays the same for a moment. There is always constant change. This applies to atoms, human beings, planets and galaxies. Everything is ultimately destroyed and recycled. Cyclic evolution underpins not only the unity of all life, but also other universal laws such as reïncarnation and karma. These patterns – long and short – are central to the unfoldment of the universe and everything in it. There are numerous types of cycles and many different names for them. They all have a greater or lesser influence on us. Exploring these great cycles of cosmic evolution can be mind-bendingly complicated and convoluted – especially since our knowledge of them remains incomplete. Examining where we are in the grand scheme of things, how we got here and where we are heading gives us a deeper perspective on our own lives and reinforces the idea, that each of us plays an immortal role. “

HPB Teaches – An Anthology

By Michael Gomes.

579 Pages | First edition, first reprint 2006 | Hardcover | The Theosophical Society, Adyar | ISBN: 8170593972.

With a title like H.P.B. Teaches, the reader may wonder: ‘teaches what‘? HPB herself gives the answer: ‘metaphysics, psychology, philosophy, ancient religions, zoology, natural sciences’. One might add occult symbolism, spiritual evolution, guidance on moral and social issues, after death states, cycles and human destiny. Aside from the major books she is famous for – Isis Unveiled (1877), The Secret Doctrine (1888), The Key to Theosophy and The Voice of Silence (1889) – it is estimated that in a brief span of seventeen years, from 1874 to 1891, Mme. Blavatsky wrote close to one thousand articles, essays, and letters to journals, which in many cases focus within the space of a few pages on the topics listed above.

For the first time in one volume a representative selection of articles by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891), co-founder of the Theosophical Society, is available. The forty articles in this book cover every facet of HPB’s writings in English, including one of her semi-fictional stories.

From page 21:

” Many thousand years ago the wise King Solomon declared that ‘There is nothing new under the Sun’, and the words of this very wise man ought to be repeated till the farthest ends of time. There is not a science, nor a modern discovery in any secretion of it, but was known to the Cabalists thousands of years since. This will appear a bold and ridiculous assertion, I know: and one apparently unconfirmed by any authority. But I will answer that where truth stares one in the face, there can be no other authority than one’s senses. “

Colonel Olcott and the Healing Arts – Blavatsky Lecture 2007

By Michael Gomes.

49 Pages | Blavatsky Lecture 2007 | Softcover |  The Theosophical Publishing House, London | No ISBN.

On August 29, 1882, Colonel Henry Steel Olcott (1832 – 1907), President-Founder of the Theosophical Society, was in Galle, Ceylon, on a lecturing tour to raise funds for the opening of the schools for Buddhist children. One of the people who came forward to contribute was a man, whose arm and leg had been paralyzed for eight years. Olcott, who had read the literature on animal magnetism, or mesmerism as it was also termed, and magnetic healing in his youth, says he was moved to try some healing passes with his hands over the man’s arm, telling him that he hoped he might feel better.

Later that evening the gentleman returned to thank the Colonel, saying indeed his condition had improved. This encouraged Olcott to treat the arm again. There was a marked improvement when he returned the next morning, and, after two more days of treatment, he could move his arm and open and close his hand. Olcott also tried working on the man’s leg, which responded well enough to allow his to walk freely and even run. To show his thanks, the now-healed man brought a friend, who was also paralyzed. When he was cured, others came in increasing numbers, to the point, the Colonel recalled, ‘within a week or so my house was besieged by sick persons from dawn until late night, all clamoring for the laying on of my hands’.

Within the space of a year, he would treat some 8.000 people, until, at the verge of his own health breaking down, he was ordered by his teacher to stop. This little-known episode in the work undertaken by Olcott offers and instructive glimpse into the revival of alternative healing that was occuring at the time and which has now entered the mainstream.

This World and That – An Analytical Study of Psychic Communication

By Laurence J. Bendit and Phoebe D. Bendit.

192 Pages | First published in1950, Quest edition 1969 | Paperback | Quest Books, U.S.A. | No ISBN.

Is it possible to have genuine communication between the living and the dead and what are the obstacles, which stand in the way? Can we find some rational explanation for the phenomena of spiritualism and the seance room? These are some of the questions discussed in this book, written by a British psychiatrist, Dr. L.J. Bendit and his wife Phoebe D. Bendit-Payne, a natural clairvoyant. Her personal experience and his medical training uniquely qualified them to consider together these and other subjects, viewing them in the wider context of man’s nature and capacities. No pat answers are offered but rather the reader is encouraged to think for himself about the mystery of existence in this world and the next.

From the ‘Personal Forewords’ (p 21/22):

This book is an attempt to clear up some of that confusion. To some it may seem that it is not suffficiently scientific and takes too much for granted. To others it may appear too much so, and too destructive of comfortable beliefs. That cannot be helped. We have tried to keep an objective, scientific attitude to the subject, and to carry this attitude into realms where the scientific experimental method cannot be applied. But we have not hesitated to go beyond the point to which objectivity can take us, and have expressed something of our own beliefs. That we have done this does not weaken our position. Even scientists must be permitted to have beliefs based on inner knowledge and experience, and all that can legitimately be demanded of them in this realm is that they shall be tentative and suggestive, not dogmatic. “

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 . . . ”

193 Pages | First Edition, 7th Reprint 2005 | Softcover | The Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170593220.

Man undoubtedly possesses, in however rudimentary a form, certain supersensory powers. Their unfoldment can be hastened through Raja Yoga as the chief means. Included in this volume are talks by the author broadcast over the air in Australia. They are a guide to managing human life and developing the character needed for such unfoldment. However it is not the development of psychic powers that is man’s supreme goal, but ‘Self-realization’. Psychic powers are only by-products in the spiritual process of seeking ‘Realization’ and are not ends in themselves . . .

Changing Reality: Huna Practices to Create the Life You Want

332 pages | Paperback | Quest Books, 2013 by Serge King

“Reality is experience, and experience is reality,” says Hawaiian shaman Serge King, speaking of Huna, the esoteric tradition in which he was reared. King emphasizes that all of us have the ability to shift from one world to another. The difference is that shamans do it purposefully, while the rest of us are unaware of it. He trains us to engage in the process consciously in order to expand our human potential. Among books on Huna, this one is unique for offering actual practices for changing our reality to create the life we want.

auteur: King, S.K.
ISBN: 9780835609111
Additional DescriptionMore Details

In a user-friendly, conversational style, King’s chapters explain the four worlds of a shaman and basic Huna principles. Then, citing case studies, he guides us in how to change reality in each of the four worlds, bringing in ESP, telepathy, the perception of auras, telekinesis, dreaming, magical flight, and, finally, soul retrieval and the great power of healing. “It sounds simple,” says King, “and it is. The most difficult part is to accept the simplicity, because that means changing one’s idea about what reality is. And that’s what this book is all about.” “I am a huge fan of Serge Kahili King’s books, and his latest offering, Changing Reality, offers tools for understanding reality at a deeper level, and for changing your life in amazing ways.” — Mary Olsen Kelly, author of Path of the Pearl; Discover Your Treasures Within, Chicken Soup for the Breast Cancer Survivor’s Soul and Finding Each Other “If you want to go from aligning with reality to actually creating it, this book is your guide. Brimming with solid shamanic techniques for bringing the extraordinary into the realm of the ordinary, it will help you transcend your beliefs and assumptions so that you can not only experience, but live, the spirit of Aloha.” — Tamarack Song, author of Entering the Mind of the Tracker: Native Practices for Developing Intuitive Consciousness and Discovering Hidden Nature. “As an energy healer, I found the exercises, especially on how to increase your aura, both easy and effective. Whether you want to increase your own health and happiness, or work as a healer, this book clearly and concisely explains how to use the special shamanic tools available to us all. King has let out the secrets to shamanism!” — Becca Chopra, author of The Chakra Diaries Serge Kahili King, PhD, a master Hawaiian shaman, is the world’s foremost author of books on Huna; he founded Huna International, which leads workshops in personal effectiveness and trains shamanic healers to work in urban settings.

Thought Power – Its Control and Culture

By Annie Besant (1847 – 1933).

122 Pages | 6th edition, 1988. NB: second edition 2016 | Softcover | Quest Books U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835603121.

‘ 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. ” 

auteur: Besant, A.
ISBN: 0835603121
Additional DescriptionMore Details

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.

The Secret Doctrine – Abridged and Annotated by Michael Gomes

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.

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.

The Occult Training of the Hindus

By Ernest Egerton Wood  (1883 – 1965).

120 Pages | First edition 1931, 2nd edition 1952, 3rd edition 1990 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 817059149X.

As soon as one speaks in the Western world about Occultism in India, the imagination flies to travellers’ stories of marvels that they have seen in this country, of occurences demanding for their explanation faculties of sense, powers of consciousness and facts of nature beyond the common experience of humankind. Regarding these, I could personally relate a number of uncommon experiences, sprinkled among the events of a great many years spent in this land.

From page 120:

” Occultism may be defined as the use of the hidden powers in man to discover the hidden life in the world. It has thus rightfully been said, that it is ātmavidyā, the science of the Self, and that its object is to discover the Divine Mind in Nature and in oneself. Through the faculties and powers of the personality a man comes in contact with phenomena, and learns through them, as a child with toys. But with the powers of the higher Self – its will and love and thought, working in outward things, but unshaken by them, and not confused by personality – a man may penetrate through the veil of appearances, and the hidden reality in him will deal with the hidden reality behind phenomena. This man works through intuition – no longer a child, he deals with realities, not with toys. Such is the occultist, and to such goal is directed the occult training of the Hindus. “

The Seven Rays – Seven Types of Men

By Ernest Wood (1883 – 1965).

190 Pages | Copyright 1925, fourth Quest book printing 1989 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835604810.

Humanity, occultism teaches us, is divided into seven distinct groups called ‘rays’. Generally speaking, your strongest motivations indicate to which of the ‘ray’ groupings you belong. You are influenced by all seven rays, occultism suggests, but one of the seven predominates. Would you like to know which of the seven rays is yours? ‘With such knowledge‘, writes the author, ‘we are in a position to choose what games we will play in this life or ours.’ For instance if your ray is number one, you are inclined to be independent in spirit and strong intuition. Is this your ray?

From the Preface (p. viii):

” If there are seven rays or types, and each one of us belongs, as it were, especially to one of these, and conducts his pathway in life accordingly, will there not be a tendency to narrowness or over-specialization?

This is a question often asked. The answer is:

Not if we understand the situation. All the seven rays are always present in everybody, but one of them in each person is the captain of the team or the president of the board, and the other six rally round, and use their own specific talents to help carry out his purpose. “

This Dynamic Universe

Edited by Corona Trew and E. Lester Smith.

167 Pages | Copyright 1983 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 083560232X.

Offered in this book is a valuable link between the occult concepts that appear in the Magnum Opus of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky’s (1831 – 1891) The Secret Doctrine (1888) and the latest theories of science. This Dynamic Universe is quite unique as a resource for the serious student of creation and evolution, clarifying as it does, some of the more difficult principles dealing with man and the cosmos.

From Chapter 5 – ‘References to Fohat in The Secret Doctrine‘ (p. 30):

” The Manifested Universe (therefore) is pervaded by duality; which is, as it were, the very essence of its Ex-istence as ‘Manifestation’. But just as the opposite poles of Subject and Object, Spirit and Matter, are but aspects of the One Unity, in which they are synthesized, so, in the Manifested Universe, there is ‘that’, which links Spirit to Matter, Subject to Object. 

This something at present unknown to Western speculation, is called by the Occultists Fohat. It is the ‘bridge’ by which the Ideas existing in the Divine Thought are impressed on Cosmic Substance as the ‘Laws of Nature’. Fohat is thus the dynamic energy of Cosmic ideation; or regarded from the other side, it is the intelligent medium, the guiding power of all manifestation, the ‘Thought Divine’ transmitted and made manifest through the Dhyan Chohans, the Architects of the visible World. “

Devas and Men – A Compilation of Theosophical Studies on the Angelic Kingdom

By anonymous authors, included authorities quoted amongst others: Helena Petrovna Blavatsky(1831 – 1891), Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934), Alice Bailey (1880 – 1949) and Geoffrey Hodson (1886 – 1983).

396 Pages | First edition 1977, 3rd reprint 2000 | Hardcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170594200.

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).

Een Weg tot Zelfontdekking

By Iqbal Kishen Taimni (1898–1978).

317 Pages | Uitgave in 1989 | Softcover | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland | ISBN: 9789061750604.

English original: Self-Culture in the Light of Occultism, this later became: Self-Culture in the Light of the Ancient Wisdom | First edition 1945, 2nd revised edition 1967, 3rd printing 1970, 4th printing 1976 | The Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 9788170592792.

Een boek voor diegenen, die de oude occulte leer over de aard van de mens willen begrijpen en die het pad van zelfontplooiing willen ontdekken en bewandelen. Taimni gaat van theorie naar praktische toepassing – van de functies, de beheersing, de zuivering en het gevoelig maken van de fysieke en emotionele lichamen naar het ‘lagere’ denken. Vandaar neemt hij ons stap voor stap mee door de ontwikkeling van het ‘hogere’ denken, het ‘wijsheidsslichaam’ en tenslotte licht hij de rol van de ātma (geest) in ons leven nader toe. In het laatste deel onderzoekt hij de ‘onwerkelijke’ wereld, waarin we leven en gaat hij over tot een zeer indrukwekkend commentaar op de techniek van yoga.

Uit de inhoud (backflap):

” De voornaamste reden waarom zo’n groot aantal mensen, die de werkelijkheden van het spirituele leven willen ervaren blijven steken, zonder enige zichtbare vordering tot hun doel maken, is dat ze geen stappen hebben ondernomen om de noodzakelijke grondslag voor dat leven te leggen en ze zich ermee tevreden stellen alleen maar over deze dingen te lezen en te denken. Maar daar brengen we het niet zo erg ver mee. We moeten onszelf echt aanpakken en de nodige voorwaarden voor werkelijke vooruitgang scheppen, omdat we moeten werken in een wereld, die door wetten wordt geregeerd. “

By Richard Smoley and Jay Kinney.

400 Pages | First edition 1999, revised edition 2006, incl. suggested reading lists per chapter | Softcover | Quest Books U.S.A. | ISBN: 9780835608442.

For decades, our modern society has looked to the East for spiritual guidance and renewal. Here is a guide much closer to home. Its subjects range comprehensibly from Jungian psychology to the Kabbalah and Gnosticism, and from Freemasonry and the Templars to Alchemy, Shamanism, the work of Gurdjieff, Neopaganism, Sufism and esoteric Christianity.

Authors Smoley and Kinney speak with sensible, even-handed objectivity, covering the strengths and weaknesses as well as the history and ideas of each tradition. They also end each chapter with a wealth of resources for further exploration. Whether you are just beginning to seek a spiritual practice or want to know more about a particular teaching; Hidden Wisdom is an invaluable resource for finding the Path, that is right for you.

From Chapter 5 – ‘Magicians: Sculptors of the Astral Light’ (p. 105):

” Magic is the traditional science of the secrets of Nature, which has been transmitted to us from the Magi. By means of this science the Adept is invested with a species of relative omnipotence and can operate superhumanly – that is, after a manner which transcends the normal possibility of man. “

Richard Smoley is the former editor of <em>Gnosis</em> magazine and today is editor of Quest Books.

The Occult World

181 pages | Paperback | Theosophical Publishing House, 1984

In September and October 1880, H.P. Blavatsky and Colonel Henry Olcott visited A. P. Sinnett and his wife Patience at Simla in northern India. The serious interest of Sinnett in the teachings and the work of the Theosophical Society prompted H. P. Blavatsky to establish a contact by correspondence between Sinnett and the two Adepts who were sponsoring the Society, Mahatmas Koot Hoomi and Morya.

From this correspondence Sinnett wrote The Occult World (1881) and Esoteric Buddhism (1883), both of which had an enormous influence in generating public interest in Theosophy. In The Occult World, Sinnett gave lengthy excerpts from his early correspondence with Mahatma KH. Sinnett also related in detail many of the occult phenomena Mme. Blavatsky performed when she was in Simla.

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

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

132 Pages | Reprint 1989 | Paperback | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 817059121X.

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: Helena Petrovna Blavatsky.

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 Astral Body – And Other Astral Phenomena

By Arthur Edward Powell (1882 – 1969).

288 Pages | First published in 1926, 1927, 1954, second edition 2014 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 9788170595809.

This classic tekst has long been used as a principal resource by students and scholars of astral phenomena. A natural companion to Powell’s The Etheric Double – The Health Aura, its subject is the structure, nature, and powers of the astral body, the vehicle of feelings and emotions seen by clairvoyants as an aura of flashing colours. Based on first-hand testimony by noted clairvoyants, including Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891), Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934) and Annie Besant (1847 – 1933), Powell’s perceptive commentary is of enduring interest to all lovers of esoteric lore. Others in the Powell series are: The Mental Body, The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena, The Causal Body and the Ego and The Solar System.

From Chapter I  – ‘General Description’:

” Briefly, the astral body of (wo)man is a vehicle, to clairvoyant sight not unlike the physical body, surrounded by an aura of flashing colours, composed of matter of an order of fineness higher than that of physical matter, in which feelings, passions, desires and emotions are expressed and which acts as a bridge or medium of transmission between the physical brain and the mind, the latter operating in the still higher vehicle – the mind-body. “

Man – A Universe in Miniature

By Joy Piper.

113 Pages | First printed in 2003, reprint 2012 | Soft cover | The Theosophical Publishing House, London | No ISBN.

In this work, the author attempts to explain the nature of man’s existence and his place in the overall scheme of things. It is concerned with challenges concerning ‘human-ness’ and all that it implies: joys, sorrows and a sense of bewilderment and frustration when one faces, as one ultimately must, the depths of one’s own ignorance as how to live a life on Earth in the truest and most spiritual sense.

It is the author’s hope, that this work may provide a basic structure for the reader’s own research and study. Feel encouraged to embark upon your own quest for knowledge of this wonderful Universe, in which we live. Discover the Great Cosmic Laws governing the way in which all solar systems with their planets in orbit follow their pre-destined pattern of movement in space: the way in which a man’s seven bodies ‘orbit’ his own ‘Spiritual Sun’ or ‘Spark of the Divine’. Because these same Great Laws apply to the macrocosm (the large) and to the microcosm (the small). As it is above, so it is below, as it is within, so it is without: by learning about humankind – ourselves – we can begin to find the answers to questions about the Universe.

From page 107:

” Although the Masters may not actively intervene in human affairs, they can and do constantly observe the progress of events on our planet Earth. They are aware of those individuals, who have willingly committed themselves to the rigours of self-training necessary to equip them with the knowledge and stamina, which are essential for carrying out the Masters’ work. This work involves spreading the Ageless Wisdom Teachings – Theosophy – as widely as possible, so that others also may become helpers in the work of the Masters. In this way, the Masters’ influence for Good will greatly undermine the dark forces, so that in time a greater harmony will prevail in life on our world. ”

ESP of Quarks and Superstrings

248 Pages | First edition 1999, reprint 2005 | Hardcover | New Age International Limited Publishers, New Delhi | ISBN: 8122412092.

In his forthcoming book The Image of God in Matter, Phillips provides further confirmation of the validity of the yogic psychic ability exercised by Annie Besant (1847 – 1933) and Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934) to magnify subatomic particles. The source of this independent support is the Jewish mystical tradition called Kabbalah, which is based upon the cosmic blueprint of the so-called ‘Tree of Life’.

Phillips proves that this geometrical object embodies the mathematics of superstring theory and encodes the structure of the superstring constituents of quarks as clairvoyantly described by the two Theosophists. He shows that Jewish mysticism, as well as Pythagorean mathematics, share a common ground with recent scientific discoveries about the nature of matter and space-time, whose relation to higher  realities is proved to confirm certain Theosophical teachings. Clairvoyant, mystical and scientific insights are shown to be in harmony with one another, because each expresses in its own way the profound truth, that matter ultimately embodies the nature of God symbolised by the ‘Tree of Life’.

From the Conclusion (p. 243):

” With the information revealed in ‘Occult Chemistry’ a great expansion of our knowledge of Chemistry lies in front of us. It is just because this expansion is inevitable, that our clairvoyant investigators have toiled patiently for thirty years. They have claimed no recognition from chemists or physicists, because clearly will sooner or later be woven into the whole fabric of truth. The fact that this generation of scientists hardly knows anything at all of an extraordinary work of research extending for thirty years matters little, when we contemplate the long vistas of scientific investigations which the imagination sees awaiting mankind. “

Anima, Evidence of a Yogic Siddhi – Remote Viewing of Subatomic Particles

By Stephen M. Phillips.

66 Pages | First edition 1996, first reprint 2003 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170592976.

This paper presents evidence of how facts of nuclear particle physics have confirmed purported, psychic descriptions of subatomic particles. It is because Annie Besant (1847 – 1933) and Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934) finished their observations many years before pertinent scientific knowledge became available that their work cannot be dismissed as fraudulent. Nor can their observations be interpreted as precognitive visions of future ideas and discoveries of physics. Besant and Leadbeater claimed that they used one of the eight yogic siddhis (aṇimā) to study the structure of the atoms in every element.

From Chapter – ‘Micro-psi Investigations’ (p. 1):

” The Vedas and books on yoga mention siddhis, or psychic powers, which a yogi may acquire as a result of meditation, drugs, incantations or austerities. The Yoga-Sūtra’s, the earliest exposition of yoga written by Patañjali about 400 BC., describes eight siddhis. In Aphorism 3.26 of the Sūtra’s he states that a yogi can acquire ‘knowledge of the small, the hidden or the distant by directing the light of the superphysical faculty’:

pravr̥tty-āloka-nyāsāt sūksma-vyavahita-viprakr̥ṣṭa-jñānam |

In parapsychological terms the ability to acquire ‘knowledge of the hidden or the distant’ is ‘remote viewing’ of the world at large. The ability to obtain ‘knowledge of the small’ can, likewise, be interpreted as remote viewing of the microscopic world. It has the Sanskrit name of animā and is defined by writers on yoga as ‘minuteness, the power to become as small as atom, at will’. It has been given the self-explanatory name of ”micro-psi’. “

A Geometry of Space-Consciousness

By James S. Perkins (1899 – 1991).

147 Pages | First edition 1964, 2nd revised edition 1973, 3rd revised edition 1978, 1st reprint 1986 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170590205.

In this little volume, a new approach to the understanding of that ultimate mystery, Space, has been indicated. Physical space is viewed as the outer, visible appearance of an invisible ‘inner space’. The explanation given herein of major concepts are treated visually as well as verbally to render precisely the geometrical patterns of movement. There are two geometries:

  1. The geometry of form in physical space.
  2. The geometry of motion in man’s consciousness.

The object of this manual is to describe for practical use the movements of consciousness and their inter-orbital transpositions as a means of creative self-discovery.

From the Introduction (p. v):

” HERMES Trismegistus proclaimed that the greatest ill among men is ignorance of God. Since the greater sages and teachers of mankind have ever taught that the above is reflected in the below, the statement attributed to Hermes is tantamount to saying that the greatest ill among men is the ‘igorance of men’ – ignorance of man’s God-self. “

Free Energy Pioneer: John Worrell Keely

By Theo Paijmans.

472 Pages | Copyright 1998 | Softcover | IllumiNet Press, Lilburn, U.S.A. | ISBN: 1881532151.

Over a century ago, a man in Philadelphia made the most important discovery of all time: a mysterious source of free, unlimited energy. He experimented with the substance for years, building a staggering 2.000 machines and devices, that ran on his esoteric force.

His eccentric vision led him to experiment with anti-gravity and the disintegration of solid matter. Numerous people witnessed his demonstrations, and his work was well known to Nicholas Tesla (1856 – 1943), Jules Verne (1828 – 1905) and Thomas Edison (1847 – 1931). The occult underground was inescapably drawn to him, and early science fiction still owes him a debt of gratitude.

The name of the enigmatic inventor: John Ernst Worrell Keely (1837 – 1898). He was one of the world’s first and foremost free energy pioneers.

From page 398:

” In Lovecraft’s 1920 tale, ‘From Beyond’, an inventor who blended science with metaphysics builds a device, that emanates waves, which enable the person to see beyond that what our sense organs usually perceive. ‘The waves from that thing are waking a thousand sleeping senses in us; senses, which we inherit from eons of evolution from the state of detached electrons to the state of organic humanity’, the inventor claims. But that is not all, for the inventor states ‘You have heard of the pineal gland? . . . That gland is the great sense organ of organs – I have found out. It is like sight in the end, and transmits visual pictures to the brain. ‘ Through the rays that this device emits, people are able to see beings that live in another dimension or plane of existence.

But years before Lovecraft painted his haunting picture, in 1882 a woman said to Keely: ‘You have opened the door into the spirit-world’. He answered: ‘Do you think so? I have sometimes thought I might be able to discover the origin of life.’ “

Ancient Wisdom, Modern Insight

By Shirley Nicholson.

242 Pages | First Adyar Edition 2011 | Hardcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 9788170595281.

Dutch translation: Oude Wijsheid, Modern Inzicht | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland | ISBN: 9789061750598.

The Secret Doctrine (1888) by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891) presented compelling evidence for the existence of a timeless Wisdom Tradition, which has a world view based on the fundamental principles of oneness, interconnectedness and periodicity. The essential teaching of this Tradition points to the unity of all life, the interdependence of all natural processes and the profound identity between the human being’s true Self and the cosmos.

This book, in its second and revised edition. identifies remarkable parallels between the Ancient Wisdom and the insights of both modern science and contemporary thought. The author correlates main ideas from Blavatsky’s Magnum Opus with the views of eminent scientists like Albert Einstein (1879 – 1955), Ilya Prigogine (1917 – 2003), David Bohm (1917 – 1992), Niels Bohr (1885 – 1962) and many others. She succesfully shows, that the findings of modern science have a resonance with the insights of ancient seers about the nature of Reality.

From Chapter 15 – ‘Self-Transformation’ (p. 213):

” The work of self-transformation on the path is to enlarge the scope of our conciousness to include all the levels of our being and to integrate all the layers and levels into a dynamic whole. The aim of evolution, which the path hastens, is to release all our potentials and place them at the service of the Self, which can then integrate the newly developed powers into its sphere of ever-expanding activity. Our unfoldment is not merely the awakening of spirituality, but gaining the conscious use of all that is in us at every level. ”

Head and Heart – A Personal Exploration of Science and the Sacred

By Victor Mansfield (1941 – 2008).

285 Pages | First Quest Edition 2002 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. suppported by the Kern Foundation | ISBN: 0835608174.

This scientist’s search for spirit can change how we think and feel about what matters most.

It is possible to hope that modern science and ancient spiritual traditions can be integrated in some higher synthesis. Ravi Ravindra, a physicist and professor of Comparative Religion, says that such task is the most important of all, that can be undertaken by contemporary individuals, for on such a synthesis depends not only the global survival of man, but also the creation of the right environment, right both physically and metaphysically, for future generations.

Victor Mansfield agrees with Ravindra, that understanding the relationship between science and ancient spiritual traditions is of the utmost importance. However, he will argue that, given the nature of science and the sacred, a synthesis, in the sense of combining separate elements into one coherent whole, is impossible.

From Chapter 13 – ‘Pilgrim and Prodigal’ (p. 261):

” From the perspective of the indivisible, unchanging, or infinite aspect of Soul, all pairs of opposites are aspects of Soul’s unity. From this lofty position, there is no question of conflict between the head and the heart, masculine and feminine, the outer and inner worlds, or science and the sacred. All knowledge and experience are merely different aspects of the indivisible or unified Soul. From this view, the divine is as much in my innermost thoughts as in the farthest galaxies, and idea echoed by mystics around the world, an idea that makes the entire world truly sacred. Equally then, the pain of another is my pain; another’s joy is my joy. In this interplay of the infinite Soul and the finite Soul we can find the meaning of the great commandment, ‘Love thy neighbor as thyself. ‘ Limited and finite though I AM, in the Majestic unity of Soul I have the responsibility of relieving the pain of those around me. “

A New Science of the Paranormal – The Promise of Psychical Research

By Lawrence LeShan Ph.D.

133 Pages | First Quest Edition 2009 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 9780835608770.

ESP, hauntings, death-bed apparitions – science refuses to acknowledge the existence of such phenomena, because controlled experiments can’t prove them. But, says Lawrence LeShan, the paranormal is as real as the power of electricity, another force that we once did not understand. Citing documented cases, he offers the only current view for making a serious study of important subjects like clairvoyance, mediumship, and psychic healing. And the issue is not just academic, he says. If we are able to stop killing each other and the planet, we desperately need to replace our materialistic worldview. Psi research promises a new concept of reality that holds great hope for the future.

From Chapter 7 – ‘What Dare I hope’? (p. 99):

” All the human search for understanding and meaning, wrote the philosopher Immanuel Kant, is contained in four questions: 

What can I know?

What ought I to do?

What dare I hope?

What is a human being?

As the study of psi becomes a mature science and its existence becomes a part of our cultural world-picture, becomes ‘common sense’, what can we legitimately expect to happen? What I dare hope for is a time when psi becomes as widely accepted as was the unconscious after Freud or global warming after enough scientific research had been done on the subject. “

Ganesha – Kleine Woordentolk der Geesteswetenschappen

Samengesteld door: Ir. A.J.H. van Leeuwen, A.P. Meyer-Gerhard en N.E. van der Schoot-Groot.

246 Pagina’s | Uitgegeven in 1969, tweede druk 1977, derde en herziene druk 2012 | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland, Amsterdam | ISBN: 9789061750079.

De occulte literatuur is in de laatste decennia steeds meer in de belangstelling komen te staan. Vele nieuwe gebieden van occultisme, esoteriek, mysticisme, yoga, paranormale wetenschappen en aanverwante aspecten ervan worden in studie genomen. Meer dan vroeger houdt men zich thans bezig met het bestuderen van de verschillende Aziatische godsdiensten, waarbij soms talrijke woorden en begrippen voor de lezer onbekend blijven, zonder de mogelijkheid om de betekenis ervan in een woordenboek op te kunnen zoeken. Dit kleine woordenboek, dat wij Ganesha noemden naar de hoogste van de Ganadevata’s, de olifantkoppige God, heer van kennis, uit-de-weg-ruimer van hinderpalen, heeft de bedoeling aan deze behoefte van de lezer tegemoet te komen.

Afkomstig uit het ‘Voorwoord’ (blz, 5):

” De occulte literatuur is in de laatste decennia zo buitengewoon uitgebreid en er zijn zoveel nieuwe gebieden van occultisme, esoteriek, mysticisme, yoga, paranormale wetenschappen en aanverwante aspecten daarvan in studie genomen, dat een nieuw woordenboek dringend noodzakelijk is geworden. Het onderhavige boek heeft de bedoeling enigszins aan deze behoefte tegemoet te komen. Het mag uiteraard geen aanspraak maken op volledigheid, maar door het benutten van zoveel mogelijk gegevens uit allerhande  afzonderlijke woordenboeken, woordenlijsten en andere publicaties, koesteren de samenstellers de verwachting dat althans een wat hoger niveau van volledigheid werd bereikt en de inhoud zich meer aanpast bij de moderne occulte literatuur.

Vegetarianism and Occultism

By Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934).

72 Pages | Reprint 2001 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170593689.

Leadbeater explains in definite and simple terms, on grounds of health, economy, ecology, ethics and spirituality, why the vegetarian diet is best for humans. He quotes numeral medical and other authorities of his time to show how unnecessary it is to slaughter millions of animals and birds for food and what  effects the killing and consumption of the flesh has on the physical, emotional and mental nature of the persons involved. The arguments put forth in this book in favour of vegetarianism are finding more and more support in the present day.

383 Pages | Published in 1978 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 9780835605021.

A clairvoyant, Leadbeater wrote, is simply a person who develops ‘the power to respond to another octave out of the stupendous gamut of possible vibrations’ and so is enabled ‘to see more of the world than those of more limited perception’. And what a world Leadbeater describes for us in these pages – a world of Master Adepts and their pupils, untapped human powers and potentials, ancient Mysteries, Deva-s and Nature Spirits. In short, the unseen workings of the universe . . .

The Hidden Side of Things

By Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934).

560 Pages | Third edition, 2nd reprint 2012 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 9788170593386.

‘ A classic work of clairvoyant investigation. ‘

Why is there so much Chaos in this world? This book may help the reader to understand the influence thoughts and actions have on the way we relate to our inner selves, to human and non-human beings and to the universe.

From Chapter One:

“The term ‘occultism’ is one which has been much misunderstood. In the mind of the ignorant it was, even recently, synonymous with magic, and its students were supposed to be practitioners of the black art, veiled in flowing robes of scarlet covered with cabalistic signs, sitting amidst uncanny surroundings with a black cat as a familiar, compounding unholy decoctions by the aid of satanic evocations. 

Even now, and among those whose education has raised above such superstition as this, there still remains a good deal of misapprehension. For them, its derivation from the Latin word ‘occultus’ ought to explain at once, that it is the science of the hidden; but they often regard it contemptuously as nonsensical and unpractical […] Students, who should know better, perpetually speak as though the hidden side of things were intentionally concealed, as though knowledge with regard to it ought to be in the hands of all men, but was being deliberately withheld by the caprice or selfishness of a few: whereas the fact is, that nothing is or can be hidden from us by our own limitations, and that for every man as he evolves, the world grows wider and wider, because he is able to see more and more of its grandeur and its loveliness.”

The Hidden Life in Freemasonry

By Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934).

376 Pages | Eight reprint 2001 | Paperback | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170591066.

From the Foreword by Annie Besant (1847 – 1933):

“It is once more my privilege to usher into the world, for the helping of the thoughtful, another volume of the series on the hidden side of things written by Bishop True Mason that he is, he is ever trying to spread the Light, which he has received, so that it may chase away the darkness of Chaos. To look for the Light, to see the Light, to follow the Light, were duties to all Egyptian Masons, though the darkness in that Ancient Land never approached the density which shrouds the West today.

This book will be welcomed by all Freemasons, who feel the beauty of their ancient Rite, and desire to add knowledge to their zeal. The inner History of Masonry is left aside for the present, and the apprentice is led by a trustworthy guide through the labyrinth which protects the central Shrine from careless and idle inquirers. Places, that were obscure become illuminated; dark allusions are changed to crystal clarity; walls which seemed solid melt away; confidence replaces doubt; glimpses of the goal are caught through rifts in the clouds; and the earth-born mists vanish before the rays of the rising sun… “

The author traces the development of the bodies, the consciousness, the emotions, their significant colours, the aura and the Divinity enveloping all. Our faith in human nature may increase when we see how entirely Man is part of the Divine Nature. The more we see this glorious scheme of evolution, the greater will be the urge to seek further and see man’s infinite potential.

De Mens – Zichtbaar en Onzichtbaar / Gedachtevormen

Door Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934).

174 Pagina’s met 30 gekleurde platen | 1902 Met de eerste druk in 1903, 2de geheel herziene druk 2009 Hardcover | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland, 2009 | ISBN: 9789061750901.

English Original: Man Visible and Invisible | First edition, 10th reprint 2008 | Hardcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 9788170595526.

Dit boek is een inspirerende gids voor de serieuze zoeker naar de realiteit achter en in onze zichtbare werkelijkheid. De auteur was een begaafde en geoefende helderziende onderzoeker.

Aura’s en gedachtrvormen behoren tot het ‘onzichtbare’. De mens is altijd naar het onzichtbare op zoek geweest, maar heeft daarbij vaak in het duister moeten tasten, doordat zijn ontwikkeling steeds materialistischer en zakelijker werd – zelfs op het gebied van het spirituele. Het doorgronden van het mysterie van de relatie tussen het zichtbare en het onzichtbare is slechts weinigen gegeven. Het vergt oefening in de eerste plaats en een buitengewone gevoeligheid. Zo is dat altijd geweest en zo is het nog steeds.

Af en toe komen we iemand tegen wiens vermogen tot het waarnemen van het onzichtbare op ons een onuitwisbare indruk maakt. Schrijver en helderziende Charles Webster Leadbeater is zo iemand. In de geschiedenis heeft hij nog niemand zoals hij helderziend onderzoek gedaan en dat vervolgens met afbeeldingen in een boek samengebracht. Leadbeater is wat dat betreft ongeëvenaard. Dit is het werk over aura’s en gedachtevormen. Het kan worden gezien als de tegenhanger van het eveneens door Leadbeater later geschreven, baanbrekende werk De Chakra’s (1927). Het is een inspirerende gids voor de serieuze zoeker naar de realiteit achter en in onze zichtbare werkelijkheid. Meer dan een gids kan het uiteraard niet zijn, omdat de lezer ten allen tijde op zijn of haar eigen intuïtie en waarnemingsvermogen zal moeten afgaan.

Afkomstig van bladzijde 28 & 29:

” De naam ‘astraal’ is niet door onszelf gekozen; wij hebben hem geërfd van de Middeleeuwse alchemisten. Hij betekent ‘sterachtig’ en men gelooft dat hij is toegekend aan de stof van het gebied dat het eerst komt boven het stoffelijke vanwege het lichtgevende voorkomen, dat wordt verbonden met de grotere snelheid van haar trilling. Het astrale gebied is de wereld van de hartstocht, van emotie en sensatie; en door het voertuig van de mens op dit gebied is het, dat al zijn gevoelens zich aan de helderziende onderzoeker vertonen. Het astrale lichaam van de mens verandert daarom voortdurend van uiterlijk naarmate diens aandoeningen wisselen. “

Clairvoyance

Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934).

230 Pages | First edition, 21st reprint, 2015 | Hardcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 9788170593195.

This book explores the nature of clairvoyance, partial and full clairvoyance as well as clairvoyance in space and time plus methods of development. The style of presentation is simple and objective, while showing the vast possibilities, which are open to anyone, who develops such an extended sight into some of the inner realities of life.

Leadbeater was a trained clairvoyant and the author of over thirty books on the spiritual life and the inner nature of the human being. His investigations of the unseen realms around us have had a marked influence on the contemporary world, one of them being the discovery of Jiddu Krishnamurti’s (1895 – 1986) potential as a spiritual teacher.

The Book of Enoch The Prophet

Translated by Richard Laurence.

192 Pages | 1995, Secret Doctrine Reference Series | Softcover | Wizards Bookshelf, San Diego, U.S.A. | ISBN: 091351067x.

In the  year 1773, after a period of almost total obscurity lasting 1500 years, the Scottisch explorer, James Bruce, discovered in what is now Ethiopia, The Book of Enoch. He writes:

‘Amongst the articles I consigned to the library at Paris was a very beautiful and magnificent copy of the prophesies of Enoch, in large quarto.; another is amongst the books of scripture, that I brought home., standing immediately before the Book of Job, which is its proper place in the Abyssinian Cannon: and a third copy I presented to the Bodleian Library at Oxford, by the hands of Dr. Douglas, the Bishop of Carlisle’. 

It rested there, forgotten, until 1821 when Laurence issued his first translation of which there were many editions, culminating in the revised edition of 1883, compiled from notes in his estate. As a former professor of Hebrew at Oxford, Laurence’s familiarity with Kabbalah and the Zohar (as shown in the introductions of earlier editions) gave him unique qualifications that were especially useful in translating a work of this type. The very profound and encyclopedic work on comparative religion and hermetic philosophy. The Secret Doctrine by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, refers to this edition on 37 occasions. It is reprinted here verbatim.
