2017 April Programme

Karma and Relationships

A talk by Chong Sanne on love, marriage and friendship and the implications of karma in such relationships. The talk covers karmic links and bonds; how families come into being; about the people surrounding one, both friends and foes. Are marriages and the choice of spouse predestined? Why does that choice sometimes appear to be a mistake? What then? How do we resolve relationship problems theosophically? See April 2017 newsletter.

 

Note start time. This talk is for members only.

 

8 April 2017 5 p.m.

The Earth Scheme—Moon Chain

In his last talk on the 6th Root Race, our Vice-President, Tang Kwok Choon, introduced the concept of evolution of planetary schemes. C. W. Leadbeater and Annie Besant in their occult investigations tells us how life forms evolved in the Moon Chain of the Earth Scheme. They also reported on the past lives of some of the early founders of the TS on the Moon. In this talk, our VP explains Chains and Rounds further.

Discipleship and Some Karmic Problems

Choong Chi Pin refers to this article by Annie Besant which appeared in The Theosophical Review, July 1906. He continues with the subject of the article.


“...The Karma generated by a miracle is of two kinds. First, there is the good done by it physically and mentally; secondly, there is the effect of the miracle on the minds of the onlookers. Such a manifestation of super-physical power usually convinces a number of the spectators of the authority of the person wielding the power; as time goes on, the miracle becomes more and more of a difficulty in their minds, until in the majority of cases it comes to be regarded as a trick or a hallucination, and resentment too often grows up against the Teacher, who is regarded as a deceiver...”

What is God?

Our Hon. Secretary, Lily Chong, will talk on this somewhat controversial subject that seems to divide humanity. Most of us have a need for God, yet there is little we know about Him. Does He exist? Indeed, what is God? See April 2017 newsletter.

 

This programme is restricted to members.

 

29 April 2017 5 p.m.

Fort Canning

Tang Kwok Choon gives a preview of our next excursion—to Fort Canning.

 

Fort Canning is located on a hill between River Valley Road and Canning Rise. It was the home of the Malay Kings before Stamford Raffles arrived. As part of the tradition, he had a house built on that hill. It was also the site of the first lighthouse.

 

You can see an archaeological dig and some of the artefacts discovered, revealing some important aspects of the history of Singapore going back to the 14th Century.

 

The British used it as a command post during WWII; The cannons are still there. There is an exhibit The Battle Box.

 

Nparks restored and organised the spice garden showcasing some plants and fruit trees that we use daily and take for granted.
