About the Author

About the Author:

"Max Heindel - born Carl Louis von Grasshoff in Aarhus, Denmark on July 23, 1865 - was a Christian occultist, astrologer, and mystic. He died on January 6, 1919 at Oceanside, California, United States.

He was born of the royal family of Von Grasshoffs, who were connected with the German Court during the lifetime of Prince Bismark. The father of Max Heindel, Francois L. von Grasshoff, migrated, when quite a young man, to Copenhagen, Denmark, where he married a Danish woman of noble birth. They had two sons and one daughter. The oldest of these sons was Carl Louis Von Grasshoff, who later adopted the pen name of Max Heindel. The father died when the eldest son was six years of age, leaving the mother with her three small children in very straitened circumstances. His infancy was lived in genteel poverty. His mother's self-denial was carried to an extreme in order that the small income would suffice that her sons and daughter could have private tutors so that they might take their place in society as members of nobility.

At the age of sixteen years, refusing a foreseeable future among the nobility class, he left home to enter the ship-yards at Glasgow, Scotland in order to learn the engineering profession. He was soon chosen as Chief Engineer of a trading steamer, position which took him in trips all over the world and gave him a great deal of knowledge of the world and its people. For a number of years he was Chief Engineer on one of the large passenger steamers of the Cunard Line plying between America and Europe. From 1895 to 1901, he was an ill luck consulting engineer in New York City and during this time he married, the marriage being terminated by the death of his wife in 1905. A son and two daughters were born of this marriage.

In 1903, Max Heindel moved to Los Angeles, California, in order to look for a job. Meanwhile, due to his earlier years that had been full of sorrow and to sad events in his own life, an increasingly intense desire to understand the cause of the sorrows and sufferings of humanity began to grow within him, as well as a desire to help alleviate them. Giving a new course to his life, he became interested in the study of metaphysics and, after attending lectures by the theosophist C.W. Leadbeater, he joined the Theosophical Society of Los Angeles, of which he was ..." (Quote from wikipedia.org)

This is one of those books that are a MUST if you are interested in esotric sciences. It is a comprehensive book that goes into detail many aspects of the path, drawing them together to create a broader view of the universe in which we live. It is not without good reason that this book finds its way onto many lists as recommended reading

4.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth the Read 6 Jun 2011
By Cellaich - Published on Amazon.com
Gibberish is sometimes thought to be infantile talk. Gibberish may also be used as a secret language or for games. The Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception shines light on some really brilliant ideas about life and its whys. Not all theories are correct but, interesting and mentally stimulating just the same. Great book for some deep thought and reflection. I would recommend this book to any truth seeker. Its rich in provocative thought and has an emotional smoothness to it. I don't know if "The Rosicrucian Fellowship" in Oceanside, CA is still in existence. This is a book to be studied, as it was a text book for The Rosicrucian Fellowships courses. Gibberish means you didn't take the time to figure the secret language.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, time tested information. 3 Dec 2008
By G. Fritz - Published on Amazon.com
I have read and re-read this book over the years. It was handed down by an older member of my family. Since it is written in an older style of prose, it is a little dense to our modern "sound-bite" ears. It's chock-full of esoteric information. Much of it is common to other ancient texts and teachings. The Rosicrucians have a more Western approach to this subject matter, meaning it is less frilly and is more of a how-to-do and how-it-is style of teaching. If you have read any of the more popular modern books on esoteric knowledge, you will have no problem with this book and will find it full of information. It's a sort of Heaven and Earth handbook.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful study material and reference book 1 April 2014
By Jeremy M. S. - Published on Amazon.com
As a long time student myself I can say after thoroughly reading even one chapter that this book is invaluable to the serious student of the mysteries.. The fact that there are two ratings heavily weighing in the negative with no real value to them is somewhat misleading. A three star rating by someone stating they have not even started reading the book and a two star rating by a skeptic who "skimmed through it".. It does not really help others to read reviews by people who have either not read nor understand the content of the book now does it? Just saying..
