2018 July Programme

The Devas (Part II)

Brandon Goh continues his talk on devas. He says,
 

“Lower devic life is fascinating, educative — even comical. The consciousness and behavior of nature spirits, although radically different from ours, could nonetheless teach us much about our own. The gulf between their consciousness and ours illuminates a similar expanse between us and the Great Ones, and hence this study opens another window to the vast firmament of spiritual evolution.”

Avatâras

Choong Chi Pin gives his 5th talk based on the four lectures delivered by Annie Besant in December 1899 on Avatâras. The four lectures given by Annie Besant were What is an Avatâra?; The Source of and Need for Avatâras; Some Special Avatâras; and Shri Krishna. This month he continues with the narrative on The Puranas. Annie Besant says:

 

"I have made this introduction in order to show you that when you read the Purânas you consistently get the fact on the higher plane described in terms of the lower, with the result that it seems unintelligible, seems incomprehensible. Then you have what is called an allegory, that is, a reality which looks like a fancy down here, but is a deeper truth than the illusion of physical matter, and is nearer to the reality of things than the things which you call objective and real."

Early Members of the Theosophical Society - A. P. Sinnett

Our VP, Tang Kwok Choon, continues his talk on the pioneers and early members of the Theosophical Society. This month he talks about Alfred Percy Sinnett.

 

Sinnett is a notable figure in the history of the Theosophical Society for a number of reasons, most importantly the exchange of letters that took place between him and certain Masters or Mahâtmas, in particular the Masters KH and M. The correspondence began in 1879 and continued until 1886.

 

Sinnett must be the most important of the early members of the TS. If not for his correspondence with the Master KH and Master M we will be so much the poorer in esoteric knowledge. We shall look at the contributions by A. P. Sinnett to the Society.
