Third Eye of the Buddhas

THEOSOPHY QUOTES “Uchnicha , also Buddhochnicha (Sk.). Explained as “a protuberance on Buddha’s cranium, forming a hair-tuft”. This curious description is given by the Orientalists, varied by another which states that Uchnicha was “originally a conical or flame-shaped hair tuft on the crown of a Buddha, in later ages represented as a flesh excrescence on the skull itself”.

“Theosophy is a scientific religion and a religious science…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Friday 23rd January 2015 “Theosophy is that ocean of knowledge which spreads from shore to shore of the evolution of sentient beings; unfathomable in its deepest parts, it gives the greatest minds their fullest scope, yet, shallow enough at its shores, it will not overwhelm the understanding of a child.

“The true practice of Yoga…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Thursday 27th February 2014 “The only method of Yoga that I would give a snap for is that found in Patanjali’s Yoga and the Bhagavad Gita. True Yoga is not autohypnotization.
