The Reality of the Masters

The consciousness of the Adept seems unfathomable. So how do we begin to conceive the Masterís consciousness and reach up to it? What about the myriad purported psychic communications that have been springing up since Blavatskyís time, and have burgeoned into a morass of staggering literature? Wholesale condemnation or dismissal of spirit communications is the product of bigotry and a lack of direct knowledge. Conversely, blind acceptance is just as unwise and far more common even though few spiritual seekers believe themselves gullible enough to fall for spurious teachings. In an age where most seekers feel themselves armed with the keenest discernment, immune from the intrigues of astral denizens, a Theosophical enquiry into channeling is attempted to shed some light on the matter.

 

Inextricably tied to channeling is the widespread interest in past lives. Students or readers of literature could hardly fail to recognize the parallel between the mystique of fiction and the accounts and claims of past lives. Therefore, if time permits, the subject will also be explored and a down-to-earth method revealed, by which we may know the net result or essence of our past lives.

 

Come and listen to our Assistant Secretary Brandon Gohís talk on this inspiring subject.

Health and Disease in Man

The attainment and maintenance of perfect health is the intelligent personís supreme material preoccupation. Health is the greatest physical necessity for every human being. Yet, despite the progress of modern science, the incidence of such diseases as leprosy, cancer, diabetes, hypertension and heart disease, and the mortality from them, tend to increase. Our Hon. Secretary, Lily Chong, will be giving this talk, Health and Disease in Man, again as requested, the last time was 4 years ago. This will be an excellent opportunity for members to understand more about our physical vehicle. Donít miss this interesting talk! Read more in the February 2016 newsletter.

 

This programme is for members only.

Glimpses At Understanding Dharma

N. C. Raghava talks about DHARMA a very complex and deep subject , especially when juxtaposed with KARMA. It is a very subtle aspect of life which varies from individual to individual . It is also in a way a law of nature by which the inner nature unfolds at various stages of one's evolution. And Dharma too operates at various levels - individual, societal and national. This talk will probe into some glimpses of understanding Dharma.
