Above All Things Teach the Doctrine of the Spiritual Grades or Levels, Which Have No Relation to the Outward Condition of Life

“Above all things teach the doctrine of the Spiritual Grades or Levels. The Christians made a serious mistake in requiring the same rule of all persons.

Christianity and Buddhism Are But Parts of One Continuous, Harmonious Whole

“Christianity, then, was introduced into the world with a special relation to the great religions of the East, and under the same divine control. And so far from being intended as a rival and supplanter of Buddhism, it was the direct and necessary sequel to that system; and the two are but parts of one… Read more

Esoteric Philosophy Has to Be Given Out Step by Step, Not in a Rush

Influence and Responsibility of the Leaders of Thought

“(…) this our generation seems to evince but a very rudimentary spiritual grasp while apparently developed in intellect to the utmost extent possible. It is, indeed, a hard, materialistic age: a fragment of sparkling quartz is its appropriate symbol. And yet of what ‘age’ and ‘generation’ do we speak? Not of that of the masses,… Read more

(To) Labour is to Pray

“The command always is –“To labour is to pray”; “To ask is to receive”; “To knock is to have the door open.” “I have often said,” says my genius, “Think for yourself.
