Description

About the Book:

What we think of as the objective world is interpenetrated by matter of varying degrees of subtlety. The astral is next to the physical the least subtle of the planes or world that are invisible to the average human being and which after the death of the physical body is the region that everyone enters.

He was a trained clairvoyant reveals here in considerable details the features of the astral plane the types of entities that in habitant it and other fascinating and useful information. The kind of life lived in this gross world conditions existence in the finer post-mortem worlds- a matter on which it is well worth being enlightened by the contents of this book.

About the Author:

He was a church of England clergyman till he joined the theosophical society in 1883. He spent some years in Sri Lanka working for the revival of Buddhism. In 1893 he commenced his clairvoyant investigations, on occasions collaborating with Annie Besant, the second President of the Society. His books unveiled the hidden side of things and the life beyond death. His lectures worldwide presented a new view point to thousands of people. It was he who discovered the great potential of J. Krishnamurti and educated him with a view to his future work.

 

Preface

FEW words are needed in sending this little book out into the world. It is the fifth of a series of Manuals designed to meet the public demand for a simple exposition of Theo- sophical teachings. Some have complained that our literature is at once too abstruse, too -technical, and too expensive for the ordinary reader, and it is our hope that the present series may succeed in supplying what is a very real want. Theosophy is not only for the learned; it is for all. Perhaps among those who in these little books catch their first glimpse of its teachings, there may be a few who will be led by them to penetrate more deeply into its philosophy, its science and its religion, facing its abstruser problems with the student's zeal and the neophyte's ardour. But these manuals are not written only for the eager student, whom no initial difficulties can daunt; they are written for the busy men and women of the workaday world, and seek to make plain some of the great truths that render life easier to bear and death easier to face. Written by servants of the Masters who are the Elder Brothers of our race, they can have no other object than to serve our fellow men.

 

Introduction

IN the extensive literature of Theosophy this little work stands out for certain specially marked characteristics. It records an attempt to describe the Invisible World in the same manner that a botanist would describe some new territory on this globe not explored by any previous botanist.

Most works dealing with Mysticism and Occultism are characterized by the lack of a scientific presentation, such as is exacted in every department of science. They give us far more the significance of things, rather than descriptions of the things themselves. In this little book the author approaches the Invisible World from the modem standpoint of science. As I have a connection with this book, as the amanuensis who copied the manuscript for the printer, I can describe how the work came to be written. At the period of its writing in 1894, C. W. Leadbeater was the secretary of the London Lodge of the Theosophical Society; Mr A. P. Sinnett was president of the Lodge. The Lodge did no public propaganda, and had no open meetings; but three or four times a year a meeting was held at the house of Mr Sinnett, and cards of invitation were sent out to the Lodge members and to those few of the 'upper classes' whom Mr Sinnett thought were likely to be interested in Theosophy. Mr Sinnett desired that Mr Leadbeater should deliver an address to the Lodge.

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
