“Theological Christianity must die out…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Thursday 6th February 2014 “Belief in the Bible literally, and in a carnalised Christ, will not last a quarter of a century longer.

The very name has now … Continue reading “Theological Christianity must die out…”

“The first law of the Sacred Science…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Thursday 26th September 2013 “Once Theosophy and its principles are known, it will be demonstrated that our philosophy is not only a “close relative of modern science,” but its forbear, though greatly transcending it in logic; and that its “metaphysics” is vaster, more beautiful and more powerful than any emanating from a dogmatic cult.

“Such an avalanche of crude impurities and fables…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Tuesday 24th September 2013 “Is the language of the Old Testament more pure or moral than the books of the Brahmans? Or any fables of the heathen world more blasphemous and ridiculous than Jehovah’s interview with Moses (Exodus xxxiii. 23)? Are any of the Pagan gods made to appear more fiendish than the same Jehovah in a score of passages? If the … Continue reading “Such an avalanche of crude impurities and fables…”

“All in Nature is an aspect of the One Element…”

“Only the knowledge of karma can offset it…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Tuesday 10th September 2013 “If they [i.e. Theosophists] do their whole duty, the progress of materialism, the increase of dangerous self-indulgence, and the tendency towards spiritual suicide can be checked.
