“The Kabalah can never divulge the whole truth…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Monday 23rd December 2013 “Nor do the modern Kabalists seem to be aware of the fact, that the Kabalah as it now stands, with its more than revised texts, its additions made to apply to the New as much as to the Old Testament, its numerical language recomposed so as to apply to both, and its crafty veiling, is no longer able … Continue reading “The Kabalah can never divulge the whole truth…”

“Capital punishment is both useless and injurious…”

“Spread, explain, and illustrate the laws of Karma and Reincarnation…”
