Many of the subjects with which our theosophical studies bring us into contact are so far removed from the experiences and interests of everyday life, that while we feel drawn towards them by an attraction which increases in geometrical progression as we come to know more of them and understand them better, we are yet conscious, at the back of our minds, as it were, of a faint sense of…


The following chapters are reprinted, with kind permission, from pamphlets issued by The Theosophical Publishing Committee, of Harrogate, and from an article in Lucifer for September, 1896. The reception given to the first of this Series, "THE RIDDLE OF LIFE," of which 60,000 copies have now been printed, leads us to think that the present booklet, which gives a rational picture of the actual…

The World Mother as Symbol & Fact by CW Leadbeater

THE issue of The Call of the World-Mother through the instrumentality of our great President has probably attracted but little attention outside of Theosophical circles; but it is an event of supreme importance to the world.

The Otherside of Death by CW Leadbeater

D E A T H is a subject which cannot but be of the deepest interest to every one, since the one thing which is absolutely certain in the future biography of all men alike is that one day they must die-still more since there is hardly an(J>ne, except the very young, from whose ken death has not already removed some dearly loved one.

The Occult History of Java

THE early history of Java appears to be wrapped in mystery. From reading most of the books written in English on the subject one would infer that the Island was entirely unknown to the rest of the world until it was visited by the Chinese pilgrim Fa Hien in the year 412 A.D.


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 Theosophical 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…


This book is merely a record of talks by Mr. C. W. Leadbeater – now Bishop Leadbeater – and myself on three famous books – books small in size but great in contents.


Theosophy may be described to the outside world as an intelligent theory of the universe. Yet for those who have studied it, it is not theory, but fact; for it is a definite science, capable of being studied, and its teachings are verifiable by investigation and experiment for those who are willing to take the trouble to qualify themselves for such enquiry.


A Textbook Of Theosophy byCharles Webster Leadbeater is the ultimate guide to Theosophy. Theosophy is thought to be a part of the broader field of esotericism, referring to wisdom that offers the individual enlightenment and salvation. The theosopher seeks to understand the mysteries of the universe and the relationships that unite the universe, humanity, and the divine.

The Inner Life

A clairvoyant, Leadbeater wrote, is simply a person who develops "the power to respond to another octave out of the stupendous gamut of possible vibrations" and so is enabled "to see more of the world..than those of more limited perception." And what a world Leadbeater describes for us in these pages---a world of Master adepts and their pupils, untapped human powers and potentials, ancient…

It was originally published in 1901 in London. From the standpoint of Theosophy, it tells regarding visualization of thoughts, experiences, emotions and music.

Invisible Helpers

What do the many examples of "invisible helpers" coming to the aid of those in danger say about higher planes of existence? Do transdimensional beings watch over us from the astral plane? Here, in this seminal work, renowned Theosophist Charles W.


Chakra (Sanskrit, "wheel") refers to the ancient Hindu concept of seven vortices of energy located on the spine from the tailbone to the crown of the head. These centers define the physical and spiritual contact points in the human body. In yoga they are bridges to higher consciousness symbolizing the journey from the material world to the divine.


Clairvoyance means literally nothing more than "clear-seeing," and it is a word which has been sorely misused, and even degraded so far as to be employed to describe the trickery of a mountebank in a variety show.
