Many people have the sense that spiritual life and daily life are fundamentally separate. This way of seeing the world is an inheritance from both religious and secular thought. The Ageless Wisdom tradition describes the human being as both spirit and matter linked by mind. Its teachings provide a means to live in a way that harmonizes these very different dimensions of our being.

 

This book is a compilation of the relevant information on the after-death states contained in the massive writings of H P Blavatsky and her Initiate Teachers. These states are part of the universal processes, the cyclic coming and going of everything in existence in due season: birth, death and rebirth, and what happens in the periods between lives. Farthing has arranged this material in an easy-to-follow manner that traces the after-death processes from death to re-birth. It is a scholarly work useful to both student and serious researcher.

Paul Brunton was one of a very small number of his generation to travel in India and Tibet so extensively at a time when very few were doing so with such insight and discernment. His journalistic skills produced magnificent descriptions of the snowy peaks and high-desert landscapes of the Himalayan region, but it was the lessons he learned from the holy men he met on his journey that transformed him into one of the great interpreters of the East.

Through the life of Apollonius of Tyana, Mead, in this 1901 work, brings in to focus a previously unknown time in history. Very little was known about the lives and motivations of those living in the first century A.D. Nor was there much information about how Christianity developed immediately after the life of Jesus. Apollonius was a Pythagorean who wrote many books on philosophy and science, and being associated with cults like the Pythagoreans, he necessarily came in contact with the religious devotees of his time. Students of history and religion will find the life of Apollonius an illuminating tale from a nearly forgotten period of history. British scholar and philosopher GEORGE ROBERT STOW MEAD (1863-1933) was educated at Cambridge University. He served as editor of The Theosophical Society's Theosophical Review, and later formed The Quest Society and edited its journal, The Quest Review.
