The Brotherhood of Religions
Choong Chi Pin
continues his talk on this book of Annie Besant. This second talk is on
Common Doctrines. On this Annie Besant says:
“Let us now pass on
(from Common Symbols) to a consideration of the doctrines which are common
to the great religions, and we shall find that the fundamental verities on
which each religion is built form a common basic structure.
What are these main
doctrines? The Unity of God; the Trinity of divine manifestation; the
super-physical Hierarchies and their worlds; the Nature of Man; his
Evolution; the great Laws. There are others, ...”

4th Round, 4th Root Race
Our VP, Tang Kwok
Choon, continues his talk on the evolution of the Earth Scheme. We have
seen how the humanoids have developed from formless to shapeless in the 3rd
Round, and how they lived and developed. In the 4th Round, events happened
at a quickened pace.The Lemurians of the 3rd Root Race gave rise to the
Atlanteans (4th Root Race) in the 4th Round. We shall look at how the
sub-races in this period lived, their culture and spiritual development.

Jesus Live In India?
There is much
speculation regarding the “Lost Years” of Jesus. Evidently, there is a
missing gap in the life story of one of the most famous men who has ever
lived. Apparently, there is no Biblical, Western, or Middle Eastern record
of the whereabouts or activities of Jesus in Palestine from the age of 13 to
29. Some are convinced that Jesus lived in India during that period.
More than that, in the
BBC Documentary Jesus was a Buddhist Monk, experts theorize that
Jesus escaped his crucifixion, and in his mid or late 30s he returned to the
land he loved so much.
Let's listen to the
claims, watch the video and discuss the subject in the light of our own
esoteric knowledge, facilitated by Chong Sanne.

Clairvoyance & Lucidity
Our Assistant Secretary,
Brandon Goh, explores this subject with the audience.
A basic knowledge of the
planes (dimensions) of nature and vehicles of consciousness is expected of
the audience. This is a (summarised) deeper study of clairvoyance and its
workings in the vehicles of consciousness. It is also an introductory
lecture to gauge the amount of interest and need for a prospective course: A
Course in Clairvoyance and Lucidity, the application of Theosophical
principles and methods in the expansion of consciousness and awareness
thereof in the physical brain. The speaker himself does not have the
capacity to facilitate such a course, but desires to share his vision of a
possible distant future with the audience.
With the plethora of new
age practices to develop psychic ability, beginners and veterans alike are
prone to temptation by spectacular promises and quick results. Moreover,
with an increasing population of natural psychics, thorough education on the
sources of psychic error is important: urging them to ignore this aspect of
their evolution and remain blind until further spiritual development is akin
to asking a baby not to use its blundering physical sight until the astral
has been attained.
A little light on the
path is all the more needed in this climate of spiritual materialism,
because the quenching of aspirations to expand one’s consciousness is not
only futile but harmful, for it turns seekers away from the path to the
Path, leading them to seek elsewhere when Theosophy, rightly understood,
gives them specific ways for the development that they seek, in conjunction
with the traditionally stated and restated practice of meditation. It is not
so much the revealing of special techniques - although hints are expressly
given in this direction - than the deep comprehension of meditation as
exemplified in the Ancient Wisdom, that shows us how to safely and surely
fulfill our aspiration to SEE and EXPERIENCE, and hence to truly KNOW..

4th Round, 5th Root Race
Our VP, Tang Kwok
Choon, continues his talk on the evolution of the Earth Scheme. Last
time we studied how the 4th Root Race developed. In the 5th Root Race in the
4th Round, the Aryans and the other sub races led by their Manus incarnating
within them, migrated from White Island in Mongolia all over the Earth
including Iran, India, Arabia, Micronesia, and Asia Minor. However, they who
are now the Masters M, DK, Hilarion and others, were not involved in the
4th Sub Race in Europe.
