Theos-World History of ideas, and evidence for masters
Oct 13, 2001 08:17 AM
Diana Eck in her "A New Religious America",mentions religious
tolerance by accepting each religion for what it is. This is
put slightly different with theosophy it seems, that claims
to be the one that knows the "true" origine off "all" religions, that
is really "theosophy".
What I wonder also is how this is (from the perspective of the history
of ideas and the underlying message, that is the inner attitude that
creates) works out with theosophy , where the emphasis is "not
so much" on one source, or a God , but more on an elusive group of
beings called Masters , and one has to "wait" till one is ready, and
"they" contact you?
Multitudes, disciples , Master.
Profane, chelas, Master.
The chaotic, organized, Order.
Every lifting up of every existing thing follows this path.
Whether one is concious of it or not doesn't make any difference as to the
actual truth of the matter, which , by the way , H.P.B. pointed to this as
being the REAL basis of all life and that by understanding of all this THEN
by its very naure would naturally direct men to "Tolerance" of all "other"
forms that also follow that order.(see above)
And as to a "NEW" book on religious perspective may i say that good for
that individual to point out tolerance as being a "Good" thing but it is
without a doubt , not getting to the heart of Universal Truth to show only
similarities without pointing to the underlying priciples or laws that are
part and parcel of the "One" thus attempting to clear up the endless mystery
of "the One in the many".
I hope i have understood your post properly.
