I'm purchasing Divine Healing of Mind and Body by M. MacDonald-Bayne to read now. I've heard some great things about it. Have you read or heard about this book?


Several years ago I read a PDF free download of his book Beyond the Himalayas which was a fantastic read if anyone is interested.

The function of Theosophists is to open mens hearts and understandings to charity, justice, and generosity, attributes which belong specifically to the human kingdom and are natural to man when he has developed the qualities of a human being. Theosophy teaches the animal-man to be a human-man; and when people have learned to think and feel as truly human beings should feel and think, they will act humanely, and works of charity, justice, and generosity will be done spontaneously by all.

Blavatsky

Let the seeker know, once for all, that the virtues cannot be discarded or ignored; they must be made a part of our life, and their philosophical basis must be understood.

The life of virtue accumulates much merit; that merit will at some time cause one to be born in a wise family where the real practice of concentration may begin; or it may cause one to be born in a family of devotees or those far advanced on the Path, as said in Bhagavad Gita.

As for human nature in general, it is the same now as it was a million of years ago: Prejudice based upon selfishness; a general unwillingness to give up an established order of things for new modes of life and thought — and occult study requires all that and much more —; pride and stubborn resistance to Truth if it but upsets their previous notions of things, — such are the characteristics of your age, and especially of the middle and lower classes.

Daniel Caldwell a theosophist whose Blavatsky Study Center is a gold mine of theosophy, has a new book on those who have met Adepts or Mahatmas. It is titled A Casebook of Encounters with the Theosophical Mahatmas. There are many cases of people meeting them.
