Throughout history, spiritual seekers have grappled with how to become fully human and go beyond the ordinary round of existence. Collected here for the first time these modern classics of the ancient Wisdom Tradition provide a roadmap that can lead any of us to the depths of our inmost being.
When he was a boy, Krishnamurti, writing as Alcyone, set down the simple precepts for right living published as At the Feet of the Master. This lucid guide to the spiritual life has inspired millions around the world.
Mabel Collins, a nineteenth-century British writer, collected forty-two aphorisms for right living which are as current for today's seekers as they were when they were first published as Light on the Path.
H. P. Blavatsky, founder of the Theosophical Society, set down her own guide to the spiritual life in the mystic and poetic masterpiece The Voice of the Silence.
Collected for the first time in a single volume, these three contemporary spiritual classics can set anyone on the path to spiritual wisdom.
Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831-1891) was born of a noble family in Russia. She became a student of metaphysical lore, and traveled to many lands, including Tibet, in search of hidden knowledge. In the 1870s she went to New York and, with Col. Henry S. Olcott and others, formed the Theosophical Society, an organization dedicated to:
Fellowship among all peoples of the world.
Encouragement of the comparative study of religion, philosophy, and science
Investigation of the unexplained powers and forces at work in nature and in humankind.
