Understanding Certain Sanskrit Terms Used in Theosophy

The Hatha Yoga and Rajah Yoga of India

Choong Chi Pin gives a talk on “The Hatha Yoga and Rajah Yoga of India” by Annie Besant from The Annals of Psychical Science, November, 1906.

"This psychological science of the East is called Yoga, a word signifying to bind, to unite. When we speak of Yoga, we express the idea of forming a union, of binding. Of binding what? Consciousness itself, by realizing the union of the separate consciousnesses of men with the universal consciousness. Yoga includes all the practical methods by which this union may be attained.

Yoga is thus a science which may be both studied and practised; it is practised in order to obtain a complete union between the ordinary individual consciousness of man and the superconsciousness, by rising from plane to plane, until at last this union is completely attained: then one is said to be free."

H. P. B. Speaks

Bro. Kam Chai Heng continues his reading from the book, H.P.B. Speaks, with with Letters XV to XVII. He provides the following synopsis.

"For historal purposes the most valuable documents among the Adyar Archives are the series of diaries of Col. Olcott from 1878 till his death in 1907 and Scrap-Books of HPB and Col Olcott.

The diary of 1878 is especially interesting because it was written by both HSC and HPB which also gives us a glimpse of their lives in the last years of TS in America. Then we shall examine HPB's letter to her aunt Mme Nadine Fadeew. This is significant as it is in a manner of her profession faith."
