Texts are read and discussed in class, with links provided to online sources for easy reference.
Through the Gates of Gold
Thoughts on the spiritual path, written down by M.C. [Mabel Collins] a pupil of H. P. Blavatsky. From the text: “To the one who has lifted the golden latch the spring of sweet waters, the fountain itself whence all softness arises, is opened and becomes part of his heritage.”
From the Epilogue: “Secreted and hidden in the heart of the world and in the heart of man is the light which can illuminate all life, the future and the past. Shall we not search for it? Surely some must do so. And then perhaps those will add what is needed to this poor fragment.”
Answers to Questions on The Ocean of Theosophy
Robert Crosbie, the founder of The United Lodge of Theosophists, was a long-time student of H. P. Blavatsky and William Q. Judge. His spontaneous replies to student questions during study classes in Judge’s Ocean of Theosophy were first published in the magazine Theosophy after Crosbie’s death in 1919, and provide great insights into the theosophical philosophy. Text read and discussed in class, with easy online links provided.
The Secret Doctrine
Regarded as the most comprehensive text of the Theosophical movement divided into two volumes: “Cosmogenesis” (the Universe) and “Anthropogenesis” (Humankind). Written by H. P. Blavatsky, it remains as a one of Western society’s greatest achievements embodying the ancient Eastern Esoteric Teachings. It illuminates the timeless fragments of knowledge and wisdom veiled in both the symbols and allegories of nearly every Mystery sect or Tradition known today and those lost throughout the Ages. Text read and discussed in class, with additional emphasis on fundamental principles, cross-referenced and compared throughout the work.
