Karma (Besant): Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is one of a series of four booklets written in the early 20th century by Besant to show the basic premises of Theosophy to newcomers. It was out of a realization, on her part, it seems, that much Theosophical literature was too long and/or obtuse to be understood unless a person was relatively highly literate or already trained in Theosophy.
It is an intermediate primer on...
The Spiritual Guidance of Man and Mankind: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
Rudolf Steiner needs little introduction due to his enormous number of lectures and literary works (hundreds of volumes)- suffice it to say this work comes from the period in which he was still a theosophist and had not yet schismed from the post-Blavatsky order to form his own vaguely separate anthroposophy.
It speaks at length on human evolution from a mystic perspective, the...
H.P. Blavatsky (An Outline of her Life): Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This short outline has only one subject; the founder and long term leader of Theosophy, Madame Blavatsky. This work chronicles her life in a fairly substantial degree of detail, however one with the intrinsic bias of being written by a member of the Theosophical Society- therefore it refutes some largely accepted claims such as fraudulent spiritual tricks in Blavatsky's apartment;...
The Theosophy of Christ: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This short work represents a contemporary look at Theosophy from a perspective different from that of the Oriental tradition. While Theosophy at large brought East to West, this and similar works spoke more of Jesus and attempted to re-assert the supremacy of Christendom over spiritism and similar phenomena.
Largely, it encourages prayer for healing, claiming that the dispensation...
Mystics of the Renaissance: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This book is one of those works Rudolf Steiner wrote which primarily compiles and analyzes and draws from secondary sources; namely, as the title suggests, some of the mystic minds of the Renaissance, although it includes, also, Medieval minds and some contemporary work by Eckhart and others. It goes from Paracelsus and Agrippa through Boehme and many others.
The statements made...
Dreams (What Are They): Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This short work, by the well-known theosophist Charles Leadbeater, is interesting mostly for its attempt to divide dreams into three pieces- the physical, etheric, and astral. As a work of pure theosophy, it does not delve into dream interpretation and similar things (although it does mention dream symbolism briefly) and mostly ruminates on some examples of dreams predicting the...
Christian Science, Medicine, and Occultism: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This little booklet is the result of the famous Albert Moll, whose forays into debunking spiritual things are of greater interest than his more mainstream content (including major contributions to the study of gender.)
It is interesting that here, while he casts a disdainful eye over the topic of the occult at large, he accepts that some of its content is legitimate at least...
Occultism And Modern Science: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This mid-length book is notable not so much for its application of the occult but its treatment of two individuals in particular (although it speaks at some length of others and of various phenomena); namely, the infamous Eva Carriere, and Rudolf Steiner, developer of Anthroposophy and, prior, prolific writer and notable Theosophist.
To the former, significant applause is given; it...
The Laws of the Higher Life: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This short work is one of the many writings of the rather famous (or infamous!) Annie Besant; a Theosophist and one of the main figures thereof. This work lays out three particular laws (or sets of laws) governing a higher existence, ascendant and enlightened. They are, respectively, consciousness, duty, and sacrifice, and form a deeply Hinduism-tainted variant of Theosophy in...
Letters From An Occult Student: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is a fairly short work that is nonetheless interesting for two types of content; first, its fusion of apparently religious Christian material with Hinduism (often an element of theosophy although I could not find any information on the author being involved with the same) and second, its allusions to telegraphy, atoms, magnetism, and the like, in regards to the occult. These...
The Ideals of Theosophy: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work is quite a notable one, being written by Besant- one of the foremost theosophists of the movement, and once-adoptive mother of Krishnamurti himself. It contains a series of four lectures, two of which are basically about socio-political issues- these two are quite interesting because the criminal and societal reforms spoken of were indeed largely adopted by western...
Death and the Afterlife: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This book is a strange one even by my own standards; it should be duly noted that due to censorship (and the deplatforming raids which have become a hallmark of the last few years) I have redacted a section of the book begrudgingly. You can find the original scans here if you wish and view this taboo knowledge for yourself about the races of mankind.
Andrew Jackson Davis, the...
