Esoteric Teachings Vol. 03 – Space and the Doctrine of Maya


The Void and the Fulness * Time and Duration Parabrahman and the Absolutes Cosmic Illusion

From the Introduction:

It is with great pleasure on the one hand, but with a deep sense of responsibility on the other, that we publish in a new edition this series of twelve Esoteric Instructions by Gottfried de Purucker …

H. P. Blavatsky founded The Theosophical Society in 1875, with the inner mandate to ‘break the moulds of mind’ that had enveloped the world and especially the West at that time. The motto of the Theosophical Society ‘Satyan Nasti Paro Dharma’, ‘There is No Religion Higher than Truth’, became the keynote of the Theosophic impulse and opened the door to new ideas and sources of wisdom: higher consciousness, the ethics of karma, the nature of human consciousness, compassion in action, a living universe, cosmogenesis etc., and people received teachings that had not been communicated for millenia …

G. de Purucker distinguishes himself by the clarity with which he explains theosophical teachings to his students and the accuracy with which he preserves their purity. These teachings were given at Point Loma, California in the early 1930’s to the esoteric group assembled there, in his capacity as Leader of The Theosophical Society and Outer Head of the Esoteric Section of The Theosophical Society, which positions he held from 1929 until his death in 1942. De Purucker unfolds and elaborates Blavatsky’s core presentation of Theosophy with a deep cohesiveness and the pervasive foundation: “…to teach men their essential Oneness with the Boundless All”
