Reading CWL is like walking onto a cloud or getting lost in a dream. He literally takes you in alternate universes of thought and once you wake up, you are never the same again. Leadbeater is a must read for every occult student and this book is a good one!

Among adepts this remarkable book is simply refered to as "Manual No.5" (that was it's old Theosophical Society designation.) When it was penned in 1894 this book was unique. This is because prior to that time all books on the subject were traditionlly written in an obscure and metaphorical manner. Bishop Leadbeater changed all that- he took 19th century scientific objectivism and applied it to the most mystical and subjective of studies. The result is a virtual Baedecker (travel book) of the astral realms. As a result this was the first modern English language text to be included in the permanent collection of the Brotherhood. This book opened, and continues to open, doors.

Briefly, this little volume, covers: scenary, inhabitants, and phenomena of the astral realm. Since this is the realm most closely in contact with our own it can be a most useful and practical guide book. For instance, you will find summarised here more real facts on black magicians, elementals, shades, vampires, and werewolves than in many thicker, more modern volumes. Indeed, a pocket sized hard cover of this manual is quite convenient to carrry at all times as a review, and passport....

I thought this was very great, descriptive, informative, and much more. This book is for those who can't achieve an outer body experience. It tells about all of the creatures, scenery, travel, and everything else there is to know about the astral plane. There's not much more to say about this book except that it is a great, informative book.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Astral Projection is a subject that I always thought fascinating. So after I installed the kindle application into my portable devices, this ebook was a no brainier for me. However, you must be forewarned that the book is dated 1895, and as such very wordy and repetitive at times. Regardless, it delivers.

This ebook uses a clear, easy to read font type. Paragraphs wraps around well. The title of each chapter is all caps bold, but remain on the same type case. It has a table of contents that is hyperlinked, and easy to use. It contains no pictures.

The hyperlinked table of contents include:

Introduction
Chapter I A General Survey
Chapter II Scenery
Chapter III Inhabitants
. Human
. Non-Human
. Artificial
Chapter IV Phenomena
Chapter V Conclusion

The Astral Planes are described with some detail in Chapter II. In Chapter III, the author describes the inhabitants of the astral planes including human such as the living (adepts, psychically-developed people, ordinary people, and black magicians), and the dead (nirmanakaya, adepts, ordinary people, shades, shells, vitalized shells, suicides, vampires and werewolves, man in the grey world, and black magicians); non-human such as elemental essence, animals, nature spirits, and devas; and Artificial such as elementals, and human artificials.

Format: Paperback
The controversial C.W. Leadbeater (1854-1934) was one of the leaders of the Theosophical Society Adyar, a new religious movement often regarded as the forerunner of current New Age thinking. He seems to have been number two within the society, immediately below the supreme leader Annie Besant. Leadbeater was also a bishop of the Liberal Catholic Church (LCC), essentially a front group for the Theosophists. Otherwise, Leadbeater is mostly known for having discovered Jiddu Krishnamurti. Both the Adyar society and the LCC still exist. (I attended one of the LCC's masses some years ago, and almost collided with the poor priest!)

"The Astral Plane", also known as "Manual No. 5", is Leadbeater's description of the astral world, a spirit-world the Theosophists believe is situated immediately above the material world. However, the astral world is nevertheless lower than the mental world or Heaven. It corresponds most closely to what Christians would call purgatory, and all souls of dead humans must pass through it on their way to the real heavenly world. (The words "above" and "below" are, of course, figurative.)

According to Leadbeater, the astral plane is experienced in many different ways by the souls passing through it. Evil souls are stuck on its lowest rung and experience something similar to Hell. To others, it looks like Heaven. It seems everyone at this plane reaps what he has sown. Sooner or later, all souls leave the astral plane, shed their astral bodies, and move on to the mental, devachanic or heavenly realms. In this sense, Leadbeater was a "universalist". Of course, most souls eventually reincarnate, but the book says little about this. Parts of the book are critical of Spiritualism, claiming that most spirits talking through mediums are impostors.
