Occult Literature 227: Karma (Besant)



all right everyone it's time for a cult literature video number 227 karma by Annie Besant of course one of the primary figures within latter-day theosophy we're talking early 20th century linked in the description of my edition of this work on Amazon 2nd and 3rd links to my books blogs if you like the Asafa chol works I think there are like 20 now available it's one of the major schools of occult literature that really is fun to edit as well it's about 58 pages and what it is is one part of a four-volume series made by Poisson at the time see the problem in theosophy was this theosophy had a lot of literature you had you know a bunch of works of Bastian Steiner and all of these other figures Leadbeater and so forth most of them were very obtuse uh or kind of out there in their content that is there was no like there weren't that many basic primers like I guess occultism for beginners style stuff by dower maybe would stand out but for the most part for at least the semi-literate you know sort of lower to middle class audience there wasn't a whole lot available they were big volumes of work a lot of complicated sort of references to Hinduism and Buddhism especially basalt realized this as a problem and said well we need a basic primer something more introductory for people that aren't yet Theosophists didn't matter if you were already familiar with theosophy it was no problem but if he didn't know anything about it how did you determine what the basic ideals of it were then therefore decide whether you wanted to join it or or sort of study it further basalt therefore made this in other works in this particular one again on the shortage side it is about Karma now from the buddhic perspective mostly it's it's westernized vaguely like some of the things that the Theosophists taught about Eastern traditions had been westernized like the like the sense of morality was slightly westernized within the Theosophical tradition and then still I believe is I don't know as much about modern-day Theo Theosophical thought because I've ruminated mostly on the old out of copyright materials that I'm actually editing because I'm reading reading it as I edit so I know a great deal of that not so much more modern material the Theosophical society still exists I think they're still based in a dr India I think there are still tens of thousands of members and if I remember Craig is still quite a few of them scattered around the world with multiple little places that they warm you know not worship a study and so it's an interesting work if you want an introductory primer to Besant's more Buddhist side she was more into that side of Eastern philosophy if you want a basic primer on that this is indispensable then there's also there the individual major Theosophists all had their own things that they were kind of interested in like Leadbeater I believe it was was into a lot of dreams occult history like like sort of superstition history folklore sort of stuff Steiner was more obtuse more verbose he was into a lot of the fusion political and end of spirituality like he spoke on culture and society a lot a lot of the theosophist seem to have been very interested in shakespeare among other things can't remember the names of them and then you have like bull fatzkee the origin story of theosophy buddhism hinduism influencing a little Western occultism some some Russian sort of Orthodoxy sort of diaspora seeps in there as well because of where she's from and and so you have these different schools of thought these sub schools within theosophy because the whole goal of theosophy is just to study all of these things not to preclude anything it's like we don't have any specific pantheon or book or anything like that to study everything and find the truth that's the whole goal of it which is why is on the surface and so you can learn a little bit about everything keeping in mind of course there's a tilt towards the Western occult perspective when you're reading especially anything by basalt in fact she adopted Krishnamurti tried to set him up as being like you know the new Messiah so to speak like saying well he's gonna liberate the world he ended up leaving behind theosophy as a movement and disclaiming any any title of that kind later on so yeah the salt was an interesting figure her writing on Blavatsky was as well quite illuminating I suppose if you're interested in that sort of thing I'm more interested in that historical site and a lot of people would consider it too dry but this is about mainly the Buddhist perspective on reincarnation is spoken of and things of that nature again link in the description of my edition of this work on Amazon second and third links or to my books blogs it is highly recommended if you're interested in learning more about theosophy as a movement that's about all peace out

  1. witches get burnt on stakes. Jesus Christ the only truth with the time comes.

  2. I caught Owen Benjamin's segment on you the other day https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYhjXVxsF7A @ 1:16:43 onwards. Owen has been going hard at whatever you'd call the alternative media figures on youtube lately. He called Tim Pool a half-breed moron today. lol

  3. The pharisees were very active in getting Jesus executed.Of course modern pc holds the Roman as the prime mover behind the trial and execution.So much so that the Vatican has capitulated.But i guess they have bigger bugger problems to deal with than the execution of their so called saviour.Yes ,buggery is a bigger problem .What a con.The roman catholic church has no authority.

  4. She has a cameo mention in Crowley's "Moonchild" as "A.B." head of the Black Lodge. Crowley hated abortion.

  5. Hey Tarl I was in an occult bookstore and a book just sort of popped out at me. It's dated 1875 and is titled "People From the Other World" by Henry Olcott of the Theosophical Society aka Blavatsky's BFF. Every heard of it or know if it is still in circulation? So far it's been a very interesting read even if its a bit overboard with the anachronistic language.

  6. Hey fascist, why do you support a politician that praised a military dictarship that killed thousands of people in their football stadium and wants to wipe out the rain forest? https://youtu.be/lr915M6hydY

  7. If you find yourself in the berry patch when the berries are ripe and by the stream when the salmon run, that's good karma, something more like travel luck than credits and demerits; yet, luck has little to do with it. Planning, or the lack of it, has consequences. What happens irrespective of your own actions is Fortuna not Karma. Churning the landscape after the fashion of a paleolithic semi-nomad produces churn-ma (-ma being a suffix indicating the resultant action of a verb, in ancient Greek and apparently in Sanskrit). That's the closest approx in English IMHO.

  8. The elite let us know what they’re up to in popular culture. That way they get our consent and we take on the karma. They have a cheat sheet for the metaphysical rules of this reality.

  9. It is my belief that history is a wheel: 'Inconsistency is my very esence' – says the wheel, 'rise up on my spokes, if you like but do not complain when you are cast back down into the depths. Good times pass away, but then so do the bad. Mutability is our tragedy, but it is also our hope. The worst of times, like the best, are always passing away…'

  10. The major turning point for the new covenant of Christ and a rejection of the old testament came with the sermon on the mount. Christ challenged the then universally accepted Hammarabis law "eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth" and instead asked that one not only forgive but actually love their enemies. In this way a person can be freed from the sickness of cycles of revenge. Styx, do you believe Karma to be an extension of Hammarabis law and justified revenge? The idea of 'what comes around goes around'?

  11. The concept of karma is simply a thinly-veiled version of dogma since it too is used to manipulate human behavior and undermine human progress. It is also used to rationalize a rigid social caste in India because "the cosmic order deemed it so." I laugh at people who tell me to do things for good karma since karma just means to sit on your hands and let rigid social caste systems be. The old Proto-Indo-European-based concept of honor is about human action and encourages progress.

  12. I like Taoism, we are on the river you have ample room to make your own choices, does one fight the rapids, hang out near shore, or go with the current, but the river is always moving forward on a course, as for me I'm making a wake

  13. Round and round . When your up on the wheels of life the only way to go is back down and visa versa . That's how I think . Reincarnation you can't get out of this life alive .

  14. A man walks up to you and stabs you, that is your karma. It doesn't mean that you did something bad and thus are being punished for it. It means you and the man that stabbed you are one unitary movement. Basically, you are not your body, you're everything in the present moment. If you are one with what you experience, everything that happens to you can be viewed as your fault. Karma is the most heavily misunderstood concept in all of the eastern philosophies. It is not cause and effect or "you get out of life what you put into it"

  15. So, NOT a video about Karma… a video about Theosophists. Might wanna change the title.

  16. Mr. Warwick would you perhaps make a literature or occult video on Godfrey Higgins? A lot of his ideas on druids are interesting and predate HPV. It’s also interesting to see the audience he attracts.
