This Is The Last Lesson That Buddha Left For Humanity Before He Died

As we have known, Buddha laid the foundation of Buddhism. Buddha, which means one who is awake, left his followers a great quantity of lessons throughout his life. It was said that three months before his death, Buddha addressed his disciples saying that he had been with them for forty-five years. They must learn his sermons, treasure them, practice them and teach them to others because they’ll be of great use for the welfare of the living and for those who would come after. He urged the monks to be mindful and of pure virtue. For whoever pursues the Teaching untiringly will go beyond the cycle of birth and death, and their suffering will end. Ananda, his personal assistant, had the courage to ask Buddha what will come of the Order in case the Buddha passed away. Buddha replied that He had preached the Truth without any distinction; for […] Read More

GENISIS GENESET

GENISIS (“The Genes of Isis”): The First Book of Revelations GENESET (“The Genes of Set”): Target Earth A Review and Synopsis by Dr. Bruce Cornet Campbell’s Response to Cornet’s Book Review of Genisis and Geneset GENISIS (1986) was written by David Wood, a surveyor, cartographer, and student of mystery religions. It is about sacred geometry and ancient knowledge handed down to us through secret societies. GENESET (1994) was written by David Wood and Ian Campbell. It is about the “Ice God”, and contains the final message to humankind about the cycle of comets, which brings destruction and renewal, or Zep Tepi (First Time), as it was called by the ancient Egyptians. Because Genisis: The First Book of Revelations was published more than a decade ago, and is almost out of print (only a few copies are still available through the author and select outlets), I present a comprehensive review […] Read More

The Path

“To all of both sides I say this. Have patience. Just realize where you come from. This is the essence of wisdom.” We are what we are…human… and, although we cannot change the world, we can change ourselves. Self-change is what this site is all about. This page is rather long. One of the reasons I made it so long is this… If you do not possess the ability to sit and read it all the way thru, then how can you slow down and effect change within? When will you find the time to listen to the voice within? How will you develop patience? I do not have degrees or pieces of paper to display that state I took this course or that I passed that class. I learned so much from others, not just people but places and animals. I learned thru trial and error. I learned from mistakes. I also learned […] Read More

1883: “Esoteric Buddhism” And Its Critic

Bottom. – Let me play the lion. . . . I will roar, that I will do any man’s heart good to hear me. . . . I will make the Duke say, . . . “Let him roar let him roar again.” . . . Masters, you ought to consider with yourselves; to bring in – God shield us! – a lion among ladies, is a most dreadful thing; for, there is not a more fearful wild-fowl than your lion living; and we ought to look to’t. . . . Nay, you must name his name, and half his face must be seen through the lion’s neck; and he himself must speak through, saying thus, or to the same defect: “Ladies,” or “fair ladies [or Theosophists] I would wish you,” or “I would request you,” or “I would entreat you,” not to fear, not to tremble: . .

1887: “Classification Of “Principles”

In a most admirable lecture by Mr. T. Subba Row on the Bhagavad-Gita, published in the February number of the Theosophist, the lecturer deals, incidentally as I believe, with the question of septenary “principles” in the Kosmos and Man. The division is rather criticized, and the grouping hitherto adopted and favoured in theosophical teachings is resolved into one of Four. This criticism has already given rise to some misunderstanding, and it is argued by some that a slur is thrown on the original teachings. This apparent disagreement with one whose views are rightly held as almost decisive on occult matters in our Society is certainly a dangerous handle to give to opponents who are ever on the alert to detect and blazon forth contradictions and inconsistencies in our philosophy. Hence I feel it my duty to show that there is in reality no inconsistency between Mr. Subba Row’s views […] Read More

1982: Notes On Some Âryan-Arhat Esoteric Tenets*

Notes On Some Âryan-Arhat Esoteric Tenets* NOTES The Tibetan esoteric Buddhist doctrine teaches that Prakriti is cosmic matter, out of which all visible forms are produced; Âkâsha is also cosmic matter, but still more imponderable, its spirit, as it were; Prakriti being the body or substance, and Âkâsha-Shakti its soul or energy. Prakriti, Svabhâvat or Âkâsha is Space, as the Tibetans have it; Space filled with whatsoever substance or no substance at all, i.e., with substance so imponderable as to be only metaphysically conceivable. Brahman, then, would be the germ thrown into the soil of that field, and Shakti, that mysterious energy or force which develops it, and which is called by the Buddhist Arahats of Tibet, Fohat. “That which we call Form (Rûpa) is not different from that which we call Space (Shûnyatâ) . . . Space is not different from Form. Form is the same as Space; […] Read More

Philosophers and Philosophicules

    We shall in vain interpret their words by the notions of our philosophy and the doctrines in our schools. – LOCKE Knowledge of the lowest kind is un-unified knowledge; Science is partially unified knowledge; Philosophy is completely unified knowledge. – HERBERT SPENCER, First Principles. New accusations are brought by captious censors against our Society in general and Theosophy, especially. We will summarize them as we proceed along, and notice the “freshest” denunciation. We are accused of being illogical in the “Constitution and Rules” of the Theosophical Society; and contradictory in the practical application thereof. The accusations are framed in this wise: In the published “Constitution and Rules” great stress is laid upon the absolutely non-sectarian character of the Society. It is constantly insisted upon that it has no creed, no philosophy, no religion, no dogmas, and even no special views of its own to advocate, still less to impose […] Read More

1888: The Theosophical Society: Its Mission And Its Future

The Theosophical Society: Its Mission And Its Future [AS EXPLAINED BY M. EMILE BURNOUF, THE FRENCH ORIENTALIST] It is another’s fault if he be ungrateful; but it is mine if I do not give. To find one thankful man I will oblige many who are not. – SENECA. . . . . The veil is rent Which blinded me! I am as all these men Who cry upon their gods and are not heard, Or are not heeded – yet there must be aid! For them and me and all there must be help! Perchance the gods have need of help themselves, Being so feeble that when sad lips cry They cannot save! I would not let one cry Whom I could save! . . . . THE LIGHT OF ASIA. It has seldom been the good fortune of the Theosophical Society to meet with such courteous and even […] Read More

1886: Theories about Reincarnation And Spirits

Over and over again the abstruse and mooted question of Rebirth or Reincarnation has crept out during the first ten years of the Theosophical Society’s existence. It has been alleged on prima facie evidence, that a notable discrepancy was found between statements made in Isis Unveiled, Vol. I, 351-2, and later teachings from the same pen and under the inspiration of the same master.1 In Isis, it was held, reincarnation is denied. An occasional return, only of “depraved spirits” is allowed. “Exclusive of that rare and doubtful possibility, Isis allows only three cases – abortion, very early death, and idiocy – in which reincarnation on this earth occurs.” (“C.C.M.” in Light, 1882.) The charge was answered then and there as every one who will turn to the Theosophist of August, 1882, can see for himself. Nevertheless, the answer either failed to satisfy some readers or passed unnoticed. Leaving aside […] Read More

2001: THE LEVITATING STONE OF SHIVAPUR

I came across this piece of information given by Margaret Deefholts which i found out be very strange n mystical….Her experience about this place…. MARGARET DEEFHOLTS: When I scribbled most of this down in a stuffy hotel room in Mumbai in January 2001, I had no premonition of the horror that was to unfold on September 11th.. At the time I was more preoccupied by the fact that I couldn’t rationalise what I’d seen, rather than thinking very much about the symbolic purpose which lay behind it. What follows is still my original version-although I think about it differently today. The tale is now a metaphor. The stone is still there. It still levitates. And I still can’t explain how. But perhaps, that’s incidental. The reason why it does so is what this story is about. * * * * * * Marble dome of Qamar Ali Darvesh Dargarh […] Read More
