2016 April Programme

2 April 2016 5 p.m.*

The Long Winding Road

Brandon Goh talks about the Path of Occultism and the subject of chelaship.

How steep is the Path? The history of failures speaks for itself. A Master of the Wisdom once said “Out of 5 lay chelas chosen by the Society and accepted under protest by us, 3 have become criminals and 2 are insane.” Surely, we will not end up like them, will we? While HPB is no longer around to usher probationers to the Masters, we may still reach up to them by our aspiration. However, history never fails to repeat itself, and if aspirants do not wish to come to harm they must first assess both themselves and the precipitous heights before attempting the ascent. We shall examine some relevant letters from the Masters of the Wisdom to guide us on our way.

This programme is for members only.

J. Krishnamurti and the Search for Light

Choong Chi Pin continues his reading of this frank book by Geoffrey Hodson where he discusses the utterances of Mr. J. Krishnamurti.

“There are dangers associated with every great adventure (including discipleship), whether material or spiritual. Everest has its ice-walls, crevasses, avalanches, its fierce gales, and its blizzards. Men have perished in attempts to reach the summit…

So also the Everest of the soul, the mountain top within. The ascent of man towards great spiritual heights, aspiration to know and learn from Those Mighty Ones Who abide upon their summits – this great adventure also has its perils. Here, too, the path leads "twixt cliffs of ice and iron" as every determined aspirant soon discovers. Since Krishnamurti so strongly discountenances the whole idea of the Way of Holiness, the Path of Discipleship and Initiation, let us look at some of the perils which beset the Soul who seeks to tread that path.”
