Product Description

Synopsis

Esoteric science, the Wisdom religion, embraces all that is good and true in the great religions of mankind, but yet transcends them all. As far as can be expressed in words, it reflects truth, insisting of the unity of the cosmic process in which each individual is as a spark to the flame. We are of like nature with the Cosmos, and, being of one Essence, we are members of one family, a family that includes all things and all beings. In this book the author has attempted to offer an outline of Esoteric Science, with abundant reference to the great literature in which the student may discover for himself some of the scope and grandeur of the Wisdom Tradition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant! 24 Jan 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Geoffrey Farthing was absolutely brilliant! He explains all the basic concepts within Theosophy is a way that I can understand and feel then able to go back to the Ancient Wisdom in the Secret Doctrine, written in a more antiquated way, but understand it better.

To anyone who is a serious student of Theosophy, but just beginning this vast topic, I would highly recommend reading Deity, Cosmos and Man before anything else. There aren't many teachers around now who have such a grasp of the Truth and Geoffrey was certainly one such teacher.

3.0 out of 5 stars An introduction to Theosophy 3 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was purchased to see how the Universal Consciousness of the Theosophists might relate to other works on consciousness. The Theosophical approach appears as humanitarian and mystical rather than philosophical, and certainly is some way off being scientific. As a way for humanity to behave, it has some merit, but as an explanation based on revelation and the wisdom of ancient seers, it does not carry credibility in a science and evidence based modern world. Whilst belief might be a problem, it is an easy book to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deity, Cosmos and Man 4 Sep 2006
By cortezhill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Esoteric Science, the Wisdom Religion, embraces all that is good and true in the great religions of mankind, but yet transcends them all. As far as can be expressed in words, it reflects Truth, insisting on the Unity of the cosmic process in which each individual is as a spark to the flame. We are of like nature with the Cosmos, and, being of one Essence, we are members of one family, a family that includes all things and all beings.

From this outline of the Wisdom teaching, we learn of the various levels of operation in the Cosmos, and in relation to man. Further, by emphasizing the important distinction between them, it shows how the personality, when unrestrained, tends to be entirely self-concerned, creating for itself a condition of psychological isolation from the rest of humanity. The Individuality, on the other hand, is rooted in the Unity, of which it is a direct expression. As we become increasingly responsive to this Individuality, it exercises a unifying influence in our lives, enabling us to recognize that identity of nature which makes of all living things one universal Brotherhood.--- from book's back cover
