Theosophy and Contemporary Literature

“The principles of TS have been used or misused by many. Often for their own profit, plagiarized without any acknowledgement. Worse, they are often modified to glamorize and excite new age adventurers with amorality.”, says our Hon. Treasurer, Bro. Tang Kwok Choon. He will take two works to illustrate this and hopefully members will view such new age works with some viveka. The two books referred to are Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield, and Dossier on The Ascension purportedly  by Master Serapis Bey but written by Mark Prophet who together with his wife Elizabeth have a proliferation of books on Masters. They also coined the term “Ascended Master” which is popularly bandied about these days.
