Publisher Description

A TEXTBOOK OF THEOSOPHY

by C. W. LEADBEATER


"Theosophy is a word and a concept known since antiquity, but commonly understood in the modern era to describe the studies of religious philosophy and metaphysics as originating with Helena Petrovna Blavatsky from the 1870s. In this context, theosophy holds that all religions are attempts by the "Spiritual Hierarchy" to help humanity in evolving to greater perfection, and that each religion therefore has a portion of the truth. Together with Henry Steel Olcott, William Quan Judge, and others, Blavatsky founded the Theosophical Society in 1875."

About the Author:-


"C.W. Leadbeater (Feb 16, 1854 Stockport, Cheshire, England - March 1, 1934 Perth, Western Australia), English clergyman and theosophical author, contributed to world thought mostly through his work as an alleged clairvoyant.Although some sources state that he was born in 1847, his biographer has uncovered sufficient documentation that he was actually born in 1854.His father Charles was born in Lincoln and his mother Emma was born in Liverpool. He himself was born in Stockport, Cheshire. By 1861 the family had moved to London, where his father is listed as a "Railway Contractor's Clerk".Lutyens, repeats the story that Charles and his family had gone to Brazil "...where his father was a railway contractor, and led a life of adventure in the course of which his father died and his younger brother Gerald was murdered in 1862 by bandits. After returning to England he entered Oxford University but soon had to leave when in 1866 the bank failed in which all the family money was invested."His uncle, was the prominent Anglican clergyman, William Wolfe Capes. By this uncle's influence, Charles was ordained an Anglican priest in 1879 at Farnham, by the Bishop of Winchester. By 1881, he is living with his widowed mother at Bramshott, where he is listed as "Curate of Bramshott".His interest in occultism was stimulated by A.P. Sinnett's Occult World, and he joined the Theosophical Society in 1883. The next year he met Helena Petrovna Blavatsky when she came to London. "When she accepted him, he gave up the church, became a vegetarian, severed all ties with England, and followed her to India."At this time he was the recipient of a few Mahatma letters which influenced him to go to India, where he arrived at Adyar in 1884. In India he wrote that he had received visits and training from some of Blavatsky's Masters. This was the start of a long career in the Theosophical Society."
