Mahatma LettersóAn Overview

In the formative years of the TS, some early members were blessed to receive direct communications from the Masters of the Wisdom. From 1875 to 1886, more than 300 letters from seven Adepts were received by various members of the TS. These do not include those that were not published. The principal recipient was Mr. A. P. Sinnett. The letters cover wide ranging subjects including those of personal counsel and instructions. Most invaluable for students are the esoteric teachings given to A. P. Sinnett and A. O. Hume. Chong Sanne will give members an overview of the Mahatma Letters. This talk should be of great interest to earnest members of the TS.

22nd A Course in Theosophy

Lecture 3: Death and After

 

This will be the first of three lectures on death and the post-mortem states of man. The first lecture is on 'Death & After' describing the process of dying and a summary of the post-mortem states. We will be presenting the theosophical view on death as a recurring event in the course of manís pilgrimage towards divinity. We shall also talk about where the man goes to after leaving aside his physical vesture. An important aspect of the talk is on the harm of mourning. This lecture, which also covers the karma of death, is useful and is in fact a prerequisite for the next two lectures, viz. 'The Astral Plane' and 'The Mental Plane'.

22nd A Course in Theosophy

Lecture 4: The Astral Plane

 

This is a continuation of the lecture on death and after. A general description of the Astral Plane and its inhabitants will be covered. We shall also discuss manís activities when the physical body is asleep and when he sheds his physical body at death. We will also talk about ghosts and other phenomena.

 

25th March 2006 5 p.m.*

The Invisible Helpers

Are there really Invisible Beings who can help us in times of trouble? Or, are they just the superstitious and mistaken beliefs of the gullible? This talk addresses these questions and looks at who really are the Invisible Helpers, what is the nature of their work and gives many true accounts of how they have helped both the living and the so-called dead. Our Hon. Secretary, Lily Chong, talks about this interesting subject.

 

Monday

27th March 2006

7:15 p.m.

22nd A Course in Theosophy

Lecture 5: The Mental Plane

 

We will be talking about both the higher and the lower mental planes. This is a continuation of the lectures on death and after and the astral plane. A short description of the heaven world and its inhabitants will be covered. Does everyone go to heaven? We shall soon find out.

 

The Mental Plane is also the realm of the Mind, i.e. the plane where thought arises. We will discuss further the subject of elemental kingdoms and the elemental essence that ensoul thoughts. Hence, this lecture serves as an introduction to 'thought-forms', one of the most important aspects of nature. This lecture is useful, if not a prerequisite for the 6th lecture on 'Thought-Forms'.

 

Tuesday

28th March 2006

7:15 p.m.

22nd A Course in Theosophy

Lecture 6: Thought-Forms

 

This is probably the most important lecture in the whole course as knowledge of thought-forms will help us conduct ourselves better and live a life in harmony with nature. The lecture will include the following: What are thought-forms? How your thoughts affect others, near or far from you. The virtue of having the right thoughts and the consequences of bad thoughts.

Conclusion of the 20th Basic Theosophy Course

Lecture 7: The Noble Eightfold Path

 

The subject of this last lecture is on 'The Noble Eightfold Path'. This lecture gives the guidelines on how to quicken the evolutionary pace; the perfection of virtues and the ideals of right living. We will talk about how to live the life of a true theosophist and finding peace and joy in the process, in other words, the application of theosophical knowledge. This last lecture wraps up A Course in Theosophy.
