    Mystics of the renaissance and their relation to modern thought (1911) by Rudolf Steiner PDF

    Mystics of the renaissance and their relation to modern thought, including Meister Eckhart, Tauler, Paracelsus, Jacob Boehme, Giordano Bruno, and others The matter which I am laying before the public in this book formed the content of lectures which I delivered last winter at the Theosophical Library in Berlin. I had been requested by Grafin and Graf Brockdorff to speak upon Mysticism before an audience for whom the matters thus dealt with constitute a vital question of the utmost importance. Ten years earlier I could not have ventured to fulfill such a request. Not that the realm of ideas, to which I now give expression, did not even then live…

Evolution The Mutual Relation of the Tattvas and of the Principles.  Prana.  The Mind.   The Cosmic Picture-Gallery-The Manifestations of Psychic Force – Yoga The Soul. -The Spirit.-The Science of Breath  The book is sure to throw a good deal of light upon the scientific researches of the ancient Aryans of India, and it will leave no doubt in a candid mind that the religion of ancient India had a scientific basis. It is chiefly for this reason that I have drawn my illustrations of the Tattvic Law from the…

    Some philosophy of the Hermetics (1898) by Anonymous Free PDF book

    Some philosophy of the Hermetics (1898) by Anonymous PDF book Nature has a way of concealing and revealing. She tells half her story out in the sunshine in a loud voice and the other half in whispers underground. She is coy like a coquette and stern like a judge. She excites curiosity in the student, and dread in the debauchee. She holds the man of science to her breast but is dumb to the lover of pleasure. She scorns the victim of priestcraft and repudiates the supernatural.  The Sage takes his cue from his mother; like Nature, he conceals and reveals. He who would see other than the smiling, scowling…

    Dynamic thought; or, The law of vibrant energy by William Walker Atkinson

    Download Dynamic thought; or, The law of vibrant energy by William Walker Atkinson PDF book (1906) This is a queer book. It is a marriage of the Ancient Occult Teachings to the latest and most advanced conceptions of Modern Science — an odd union, for the parties thereto are of entirely different temperaments. The marriage might be expected to result disastrously, were it not for the fact that a connecting link has been found that gives them a bond of common interest. No two people may truly love each other unless they also love something in common — the more they love in common, the greater will be their love…

    Magic, white and black;(1890) or The science of finate and infinate life by Franz Hartmann

    Magic, white and black; or The science of finate and infinate life, containing practical hints for students of occultism by Franz Hartmann   MAGIC, white and black, was originally written at a time when I imagined that it was possible by means of intellectual efforts to bore a hole through the veil that covers the mystery of the spirit, and the favor with which the first three editions have been received I attribute to the gene-rally prevailing curiosity of obtaining a knowledge of spiritual things without having to pass through the slow process of becoming spiritual oneself. As it has been decided to bring out a new edition, I have…

    Clairvoyance and occult powers PDF book by Swami Panchadasi

    Clairvoyance and occult powers PDF book by Swami Panchadasi (1916) In preparing this series of lessons for students of Western lands, I have been compelled to proceed along lines exactly opposite to those which would have chosen had these lessons been for students in India. This because of the diametric-ally opposite mental attitudes of the students of these two several lands. The student in India expects the teacher to state positively the principles involved, and the methods whereby these principles may be manifested, together with frequent illustrations (generally in the nature of fables or parables), serving to link the new knowledge to some already known thing. The Hindu student never…

    Crystal vision through crystal gazing PDF ( 1923) by Frater Achad

    Crystal vision through crystal gazing PDF ( 1923) by  Frater Achad The purpose of this little volume is three-fold. (1) To give those who are interested in the art of Crystal-Gazing a clear and concise method of procedure, not alone in the practice of the work, but also in the preparation of the crystal itself, so that it becomes a true material basis or link with other planes. (2) To show that the Ancient Methods of Working—if properly understood—are more scientific than modern ones, since they were designed to ensure a defi¬ nite type of vision and to put the Seer in touch with definite Intelligence of a Higher Order.  (3)…

    Middle Pillar PDF book (1938) by Israel Regardie (with illustrations) A study of the kabbalah

    Middle Pillar PDF book (1938) by Israel Regardie  (with illustrations) A study of the kabbalah In the early decades of this century, little was known about the techniques of western ceremonial magic due to the veil of secrecy which had shrouded these practices. Unless a person happened to be a member of a magical organization, there was little chance of learning the procedures and initiatory practices of high magic. This changed in 1937 when Israel Regardie published four volumes titled The Golden Dawn, a collection of ceremonies and teachings from the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Earlier, Regardie had published two books describing the magical principles of the Golden…
