Echoes of the Orient: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

And now comes one of the most recognizable works released within Theosophy; an early work, “Echoes of the Orient” by the esteemed William Quan Judge.

Altogether it is a broad overview of 1. What Theosophy is, 2. What Theosophy believes, and 3. A mild refutation of some criticism aimed at the same. It should be noted that Judge was vice president of the rapidly expanding order at the time and that Theosophy would not only significantly expand after the writing of this book but spawn multiple significant offshoots, influencing politics despite being apolitical and being conjoined to the proro-eugenic movement.

Occultism in the Shakespeare Plays: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This quite short work is an excellent example of the type of Theosophical writing common in its era; a remarkably detailed study of some of Shakespeare’s plays and the occultism and references to omens, witches, and so forth present therein; it labels “The Tempest” as the most outwardly occult (which I happen to agree with) and also speaks about “Julius Caesar”, “Macbeth”, and a few other works. It should be noted that the Baconian tradition of Shakespeare was also studied within Theosophy and the topic of theater is of note within the occult because of its lycanthropic importance; the concept of illusion and deliberate misrepresentation of reality.

The Life After Death: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

Yet another early work with no individual entry!

This tract is quite interesting and revolves- you guessed it- around the concept of the afterlife, that which happens after one is dead. To the theosophists a fusion of eastern and western lore is the answer; especially a sort of eastern-ized conceptualization of purgatory. Having expounded upon the form of the spirit world, Leadbeater also prescribes why Theosophists must help the departed and how.

Occultism For Beginners: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

In what may be the most odd discovery I’ve made as I was updating files and re-editing and organizing, I suddenly remembered that for the first few works I ever edited there aren’t individual entries on my blogs since I had merely compiled them on one general update.

This particular work is one of the first I ever edited, now refined into a 5×8 format with a few typographical errors eliminated and a new cover. Here, Dower ruminates on biology, chemistry, and early radiological studies and formulates a sort of synchronistic worldview (As above, so below!) which coincides, he believes, with both eastern and western philosophy. Altogether it’s a fine work and one I recommend as a few must-read works on the subject.

The Esoteric Basis of Christianity: Now Available!

 

This short work is one of Kingslands’ additions to Theosophy; an interesting little booklet which compares Christendom with the claimed mystery religion at the core of Theosophy itself.

The words of Jesus in the canonical scriptures, as well as of Paul and others, here, are used to show that Jesus was not a believer in the kind of legalistic superstition of quasi-modern church dogma- indeed, not only is this inarguably factual, it has now recently emerged into other schools of completely legitimate philosophy.
