About This Page

 Esoteric Philosophy is, essentially, the "Science of the Soul," and provides an insight into the synthetic nature of the energies and forces lying behind Man, Creation and the Phenomenal World. The Methods and Laws governing the understanding and utilization of these energies and forces are provided throughout various writings on the subject, and a mere introduction to these concepts have been compiled in the index below. While it is in no way a comprehensive treatment of Esoteric Philosophy, the information below should provide an interesting and provocative appeal to both the rational and intuitive aspects of the reader.

"The keynotes upon which the occult philosophy is built, are:
1. There is naught in manifestation except organized energy.
2. Energy follows or conforms itself to thought.
3. The occultist works in energy and with energies."
(The Externalisation of the Hierarchy, p. 674)


World Teacher for the coming Age.

All the great religions posit the idea of a further revelation to be given by a future Teacher. Christians hope for the return of the Christ, the Buddhists look for the coming of another Buddha (the Lord Maitreya), Muslims await the Imam Mahdi, Hindus expect a reincarnation of Krishna, and the Jews await the Messiah. Students of the esoteric tradition know all these as different names for the same individual -- the Lord Maitreya, the World Teacher, the Head of the Spiritual Hierarchy of Masters. He is now present in the world today and is preparing for His imminent return to the world.
