Here is an excerpt:

 

“A MAHATMA is a personage, who, by special training and education, has evolved those higher faculties and has attained…

To gain insight

Dear friends,

There is a popular proverb which says “not everything is as it seems”.

Robert Crosbie wrote.

“The greatest thing most students have to guard against is self-deception. The versatility of the lower Manas in this direction is beyond characterisation. So we have to watch to see whether our ostensible motives are not cloaks for underlying ones. By this course we will gain insight and strength.” [1]

We need always to be vigilant. It’s…

The Power of Reasoning

Dear friends,

 

As the geologic and climatic change deepens it is wise to turn our eyes to the teachings of the ancient philosophers, or Theosophists.

 

They usually offer valuable lessons to any citizen who wants to be helpful in this period of planetary transition.

 

In the text “Stoicism in the Esoteric Philosophy” one can read:

 

“Tradition holds that before being freed and becoming a philosopher on his own,  the Greek slave…

A Dialogue With H.P.B.

Dear friends,

 

Discussions about the nature of the universe are essential to Theosophy.



The meditative reading of “The Secret Doctrine” led us to forget our illusory nature and reconcile us with the eternal. In the realm of Unity there is no separateness.

 

I would like to invite you all to a meeting with H.P.B. and some of her students, where she clarifies some misconceptions about aspects of the occult doctrine.

 

Having the…

Bin Laden and the Occult Roots of Afghan War

Dear friends,

Freud, Jung, And Ethics

Dear friends,

 

We learn that Theosophy is “divine Ethics”.

 

HPB teaches that “these ethics are the soul of the Wisdom-Religion”, and were promulgated by every initiate, in every times and places.

 

Ethics are also in the center of true Psychology.

 

In our learning process, we should always try that our feelings of disappointment did not overcome the calm and unbiased examination of the facts.

 

We have published in our…

Theosophy, Carl Jung and the "Tibetan Book of the Dead"

Dear friends,



There are many students of theosophy who admire the thought of Carl Jung.



However, maybe most of them don’t see that Jung ideas are contrary to Ethics, as Eric Fromm and others showed.



There is a most interesting article that brings even more evidences about the untheosophical ideais of Mr. Jung, and his relation with a Dugpa sect.



The text is published at our websites…
