The Ocean of TheosophyWilliam Q. Judge
In the early 1890s Judge recognized the need for a book on theosophy that could be readily understood by all. The Ocean provides a concise yet comprehensive survey of the basic tenets of theosophy. Written with the beginner in mind, it clarifies such topics as: the sevenfold nature of man; reincarnation and karma; dangers of psychic practices and the pitfalls of pseudo-occultism; earth's sevenfold being; cosmic and terrestrial cycles; afterdeath states; the existence of highly advanced human beings; and many more. Here is knowledge based upon evidence and experience, written with brevity and depth.
