Delusions of Clairvoyance

Delusions of Clairvoyance The Path, July, 1892 Some years ago it was proposed that psychometry should be used in detecting crime and for the exposing of motive in all transactions between man and man. This, the alleged discoverer said, would alter the state of society by compelling people to be honest and by reducing crime. Now for those who do not know, it may be well to say that when you psychometrize you ...

Pronunciation of Sanscrit & The Sanscrit Language

Pronunciation of Sanscrit The Path, June, 1886 Dear Brother: Is there any dictionary or book giving the correct pronunciation of the Oriental words so current in theosophical literature? Yours ——— In Sanscrit dictionaries the true pronunciation is found. But if our correspondent will, in these words, always read a as ah, e as eh, i as ee, u as oo, and o as oh, she will be right. Arjuna is sounded as Arjoona ...

Conversations on Occultism with H.P.B.

Conversations on Occultism with H.P.B. The Path, April, 1894 In 1875, '76, '77 and '78 my intimacy with H.P.B. gave me many opportunities for conversing with her on what we then called "Magic." These useful, and for me very wonderful, occasions came about late at night, and sometimes during the day. I was then in the habit of calling on her in the daytime whenever I could get away from my office. Many times ...

Closed or Open Lodges

Closed or Open Lodges The Path, May, 1890 The Theosophical Society has never prohibited Private Branches. If five Members-at-large can exist separately, they can exist together; for they are no worse off when organized than when not. It is conceivable, moreover, that there may be special circumstances where publicity is undesirable—as where there is exceptional local bitterness against Theosophy, or where t ...

Change of Name

Change of Name The Path, March, 1896 Commencing with the next, April, number, the PATH, which has been published for ten years under that name, will drop the title and thereafter will be issued under the name of THEOSOPHY. Its management, aims, and policy will in no way be altered, but will continue on the lines laid down at the outset of its career. It is hoped that the change of name will not result in an ...

Authority The Path, November, 1887 We have received the following from California: In the July PATH is an article entitled—"Shall We Know Our Friends in Heaven?" I would like to ask if the Swedish Seer Swedenborg, has not answered that question to the satisfaction of theosophists. If he is accepted as an authority I should think his answer complete and satisfactory. Yours, E.W.F. Inasmuch as theosophists ar ...

Answers To Questioners

Answers To Questioners The Path, November, 1887 The notice published last month, that questions might be asked, addressed to"Zadok," has elicited several queries, from which we select the following. Hereafter "Zadok" will continue his answers, but they will be given through the Path's columns, except where their private nature may call for personal correspondence. From C.—(1) Is celibacy necessary to the hi ...

Am I My Brother’s Keeper?

Am I My Brother's Keeper? —Genesis IV, 9 The Path, August, 1887 Many students, in their search for light, find divers problems presented to them for solution; questions so puzzling from the contradictory aspects which they present, that the true course is difficult of attainment for those who seek Right Living. One of these questions, Is it our duty to interfere if we see a wrong being done? arises. The que ...

Adepts and Politics

Adepts and Politics Theosophist, June, 1884 The communication in your December number from Chhabigram Dolatram, headed as above, is a piece of special pleading, directed against the adepts, and flowing from as source not friendly to either the cause of Theosophy or to the Masters. Personally, I do not believe Mr. Dolatram wrote the article; he simply allowed his name to be appended to it. It is, to my think ...
