7 p.m.

43rd A Course in Theosophy

Lecture 5: The Mental Plane

 

We will be talking about both the higher and the lower mental planes. This is a continuation of the lectures on death and after and the astral plane. A short description of the heaven world and its inhabitants will be covered. Does everyone go to heaven? We shall soon find out.

 

The Mental Plane is also the realm of the Mind, i.e. the plane where thought arises. We will discuss further the subject of elemental kingdoms and the elemental essence that ensoul thoughts. Hence, this lecture serves as an introduction to 'thought-forms', one of the most important aspects of nature. This lecture is useful, if not a prerequisite for the 6th lecture on 'Thought-Forms'.

43rd A Course in Theosophy

Lecture 6: Thought-Forms

 

This is probably the most important lecture in the whole course as knowledge of thought-forms will help us conduct ourselves better and live a life in harmony with nature. The lecture will include the following: What are thought-forms? How your thoughts affect others, near or far from you. The virtue of having the right thoughts and the consequences of bad thoughts.

Conclusion of the 43rd A Course in Theosophy

Lecture 7: The Noble Eightfold Path

 

The subject of this last lecture is on 'The Noble Eightfold Path'. This lecture gives the guidelines on how to quicken the evolutionary pace; the perfection of virtues and the ideals of right living. We will talk about how to live the life of a true theosophist and finding peace and joy in the process, in other words, the application of theosophical knowledge. This last lecture wraps up A Course in Theosophy.

The Brotherhood of Religions

Choong Chi Pin gives the first of his talks on the book of Annie Besant. She says:


“A reader ejaculates: ‘Well! whatever else religions may be, most certainly they are not brotherly.’ And it is unhappily true that if we look into the religious history of the immediate past, we shall find therein very little brotherhood; rather shall we find religions fighting the one against the other, battling which shall be predominant and crush its rivals to death; religious wars have been the most cruel…”

 

24 June 2017 5 p.m.

The Earth Scheme

Our VP, Tang Kwok Choon, continues his talk on the evolution of the Earth Scheme. We have seen how the Earth Scheme evolved up to the 3rd Chain—The Moon Chain, and how lives evolved there. We now look at what happened in the next chain—the 4th Chain. How the Earth was built; how the Life Wave  came to Earth and how those life forms evolved. What was life like? Indeed, what and who were they?
