World Day of Social Justice

World Day of Social Justice: A Sense of Direction

Rene Wadlow*





On a proposal of the Ambassador of Kyrgyzstzan, the United Nations General Assembly has set 20 February as the World Day of Social Justice. It was observed for the first time in 2009, but is not widely known. As with other UN-designated “Days”, the World Day of Social Justice gives us an opportunity to take stock of how we can work together at the local, national and global level on policy and action to achieve… Continue

Sinnett's novel "United"

I put online at scribd.com a pdf/txt copy of A.P. Sinnett's novel "United" (2vols in one) at:



http://www.scribd.com/doc/27021079/United-A-Novel-A-P-Sinnett





This is a very strange book. Don't think I've read another one like it, if one can get through the prim-and-proper upper-class 19th century Britain setting. The two main characters are a mesmerist and esotericist, and a… Continue

Inner Christianity (A Review)

Richard Smoley

Inner Christianity: A Guide to the Esoteric Tradition

(Boston: Shambhala, 2002, 292pp.) (Book)



At this time of transition from the Piscean Period to the Age of Aquarius, there is an evaluation going on within all systems of belief to sort out those aspects of value for the New Age and to let dry up those thought forms and processes which were appropriate only for the passing Piscean period.

With some comparisons to the Agni Yoga

Teachings by Helena Roerich



Michael D. Robbins





The books of DK and AAB are called the “Blue Books”. Eighteen of them are written by the Tibetan collaborating with AAB; five are written by AAB herself. One book, The Light of the Soul, which is an exegesis of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, was a shared effort in a different way; the Tibetan Master provided a translation of the ancient… Continue

New online



On Blogger (aka, not by me)



This is not exactly a new blog. It's just that I only became aware of it recently (thank you Michael Gomes). It's called 'Blavatsky News', but the subjects are far wider. It contains a lot of book reviews and (surprise) the authors seem to know what they are talking about.
