Theosophical Articles and Notes

 

These articles come from a variety of sources, and are reproduced here for their intrinsic worth.

Internal evidence strongly suggests that some of them have an “adept” origin and are so presented.

Some articles unintentionally omitted from Theosophical Articles by H. P. Blavatsky and William Q. Judge are also included.

There is also material by Damodar K. Mavalankar, and Cicero’s “Vision of Scipio” is included by reason of H.P.B.’s informative footnotes.

Judge’s “Notes on the Bhagavad Gita” is a Path article that is included here, it was not part of his book of that name, as also notes found in the effects of Countess Wachtmeister, apparently taken down from dictation by H.P.B.

The value of this book will be self-evident to Theosophical students and readers who wish to access original texts of a profound and illuminating nature.

We usually have this in stock; to order see the Price List on the Library page.
