5.0 out of 5 stars CWL's Personal Journey from Catholicism to Theosophy!, September 22, 2005
This is a fascinating story behind the man and his great works of occult literature. Like his colleague, Annie Besant, his life is a fascinating journey of accepting and then throwing off the cloak of dogma and organized religion. Of special note is his first meeting with the Famous Madame Blavatsky. This book will delight all followers of CWL's works and those who just want to know everything there is to know about this amazing group of spiritual pioneers of the 19th and early 20th century.

5.0 out of 5 stars Appealing to the Beginning Student!, September 22, 2005
Some of the works by Leadbeater and the other Theosophists can be quite overwhelming without a basic understanding of the occult and mystery schools. This is a great book to introduce the new seeker into this amazing and mystifying world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for the weak of intellect!, September 22, 2005
This is at the heart of ancient esoteric thought. Briefly, during each planetary round, every kingdom or life-wave goes through seven stages of development on each globe. In the human kingdom, these stages are called root-races or humanities. The root-races overlap: a new race begins in the middle of the previous one. Each root-race contains the same egos that were evolving in the preceding root-race.

As a general rule, a root-race lasts for two mahâ-yugas (8.64 million years). During the first mahâ-yuga, the race reaches its zenith. A racial cataclysm then ensues, and during the second mahâ-yuga the old race slowly dies out while a new one emerges and pursues its evolution towards maturity. The fifth race in particular will last for two mahâ-yugas. The fourth race lasted somewhat longer, the sixth and seventh races will be slightly shorter, and the first three races were considerably longer.

CW Leadbeater through his clairvoyant visions, delineates his findings on this subject matter.

Heady stuff. Know a bit of Theosophy before you attempt this read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Can we call it Heaven?, September 22, 2005
'Again, it should not be forgotten that the soul must have some rest. Were it, before becoming bright as the diamond, hard as adamant, and strong as steel, to go on working, working through earth-life after earth-life without a break between, it must at last succumb to the strain and come to nothing. Nature therefore has provided for it a place of rest - in Devachan and that we should thankfully accept if it falls to our lot." W.Q.J. Path, September, 1890

A most interesting subtonic in the discourse of afterlife. CWL takes the above and runs with it!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Feminine Face of God!, September 22, 2005
A wonderful balancing of the feminine forces inherent in spirituality and nature. CW Leadbeater writes with a poetic force of power and brilliance making this one of my favorite books in a very large collection by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anyone who wants to know about the Afterlife will do well to study this work!, September 22, 2005
Please be sure you have read Part 1 before you attempt this book because it continues on from what was written before. Both volumes constitute the most complete esoteric ruminations on the subject of "the other side" that I have read to date. This is a serious work to be undertaken by serious students of esoteric literature. Just phenomenal!
