Women in (Lankan) History
.
Who is this lady? Helena Blavatsky arrived in Sri Lanka in 1880 with Henry Steel Olcott to start the Buddhist Theosophical Society (an arm of their Theosophical society, started in New York 5 years prior), and spearheaded the late-nineteenth-century, anti-imperial Buddhist revival in Lanka.
.
Blavatsky was born in a town that is now in Ukraine, and raised by her wealthy, feudal Russian grandparents. She purportedly ran away from her first husband, before traveling the world and acquiring her psychic and mystic leanings (which included levitation and telepathy). (Yes, theosophists were weird!)
.
Blavatsky is often cited as an example of women involved in South Asian independence movements/nationalism/women's education etc. And yes, like most other women who are named in these studies (Annie Bessant etc.), Blavatsky is also, white.

The perfect place to read Viktor E. Frankl’s “Man's Search for Meaning,” Theosophical Society of Seattle Library. TSSL is a cozy, peaceful library filled with rare texts & books you won’t find anywhere. It’s a great place for some deep, reflective reading, I love energy I feel when I enter this library. Happy reading! 🤓✌️📖

Since I was a child I was interested in Numbers.Letters.Lines.
They're the most elementary particles available to We the People, they make everything up.

Playing with these you play with the toys of William Shakespeare, Plato, Pythagoras, al-Khwarizmi, and Leonardo da Vinci, Maya Angelou, and Pablo Neruda.

Upon studying numbers, letters, & lines I was lead to study geometry, color theory, music theory, and languages like Hebrew, Greek, Futhark Runes, Tamil, Hangul, Georgian, the Fibonacci sequence, Pisano Periods, and many other fields which contributed to tying everything together.

This diagram is a black and white drawing with color added via computer. It shows a structure within the English alphabet I discovered through my studies. You can't find anything like this anywhere on the internet or in books... So if you write the alphabet around a circle and put the letter E at the top the vowels become symetrical(rainbow gradient)...they make an oblong 5 pointed star. The letters E, M, and W are actually all the same shape in this drawing...Made to look a little like an ॐ Om symbol but also kinda make a person think of E = MC2 or the number 33 the way they're angled directly across from each other...interestingly enough M is the 13th and W the 23rd.

The letter A and V are the same also...minus the -.
&also the letter Z and N just rotated.

Z is the last letter of the alphabet...directly across from it is J...the last letter added to the alphabet.

UVW upside down looks like MAN...The letters U, V, & W all come from the Hebrew letter Vav which had a value of 6...Three of them together is 666. No claims as to what that means...just pointing out it's there...There's actually an X before it all which makes XMAN... I've had a long day...There's much more in this picture than what I have labeled, colored, or written...Hope you can connect with some of it and be inspired. If so please share some questions/comments/constructive criticisms. If you appreciate the work then by all means share it.

I think Sunday should include a visit to a bookstore or a library, right? I don’t come to Quest Bookshop often; but when I do, I spend hours in here. The best theosophical, metaphysical, and spirituality bookstore in Seattle. It’s a wonderful bookstore tucked in a little corner, knowledgeable staff, and filled with amazing, unique books & Knick knacks. It’s a shop run by the Theosophical Society of Seattle, which is adjacent to the shop. TSS has a cozy library filled with rare texts & books you won’t find anywhere. It can get bit overwhelming at times because of its energy inside. But it’s a wonderful place to spend few hours once in awhile. 🤓✌️📖

“The Key to Theosophy” - Book Study 6

New Video Up! Link in Bio ❤️💕 This week we are moving forward through section II “Exoteric and Esoteric Theosophy” into “Theosophists and Members of the ‘T.S.’” (Theosophical Society).
I have hope that there are Theosophists who are truly working for the benefit of mankind and not personal status, wealth or fame, there are those who may be classified as such without ever even having heard of “Theosophy” ~
Theosophy is: “The archaic Wisdom-Religion, the esoteric doctrine once known in every ancient country having claims to civilization.” ~ HPB
When man looks up from the busy world of the senses and sets his sights on the stars, he can hear the eternal questions: Who, Why, Where and WHAT am I? And who is the “asker” behind these questions? Surely it is not the cry of the material body alone? Divine Wisdom has come through for us, i.e. “Man, know thyself”, “The Kingdom of Heaven is Within”, unfortunately, man will be man and too often in the search for purpose and meaning we slip into and are blinded by self importance and separation.

“Dennis Kapra, Paranormal Investigator”, acrylic on custom wood panel, 47cm x 75cm. Wait...what’s that blue goo on your hands, Dennis? Your belt shows the symbol of the Theosophical Society. Did you just have a seance again? Is that ectoplasm? Things got messy again, didn’t they Dennis? Well, that’s what you get for spinning Blood Ceremony records back to back for nine hours, so maybe get yourself cleaned up and we’ll try it again so I can see this time.

There is no better training school for a disciple and an initiate than family life, with its enforced relations, its scope for adjustments and adaptability, its demanded sacrifices and service, and its opportunities for the full expression of every part of man's nature. - #AliceBailey .

Louche Angeles visits its birthplace: Altadena, home of one of the iterations of the Theosophical Society. Honey, let me tell you that the San Gabriel mountain foothill communities have attracted more mystics and freaks with greater intensity and duration than the hills of Beverly, Hollywood, Laurel Canyon, and Malibu combined. Altadena is older and wiser now and quietly hides its louche past behind genteel, ivy covered gates like the SoCal version of “Howard’s End.” #theosophicalsociety #altadena #madamblavatsky #forgottenlosangeles #losangeles.

Knocked this piece out today...first time I've done a mixture of Art+Notes on a piece...how do y'all like it? Good mix or should I try making the notes as pretty and ordered as the art?

Included some other photos in this upload that I hope compliment it well and help with deciphering meaning.

Questions/comments/constructive criticisms appreciated!

What I didn’t know about Madam Blavatsky was that she is credited with bringing yoga from India and introducing it to the rest of the world.

His grandfather Surūshān was born a Zoroastrian,an indication that Bastami had Persian heritage, despite the fact that his transmitted sayings are in Arabic. Very little is known about the life of Bastami, whose importance lies in his biographical tradition, since he left no written works. The early biographical reports portray him as a wanderer but also as the leader of teaching circles.The early biographers describe him as a mystic who dismissed excessive asceticism;but who was also scrupulous about ritual purity, to the point of washing his tongue before chanting God’s names.He also appreciated the work of the great jurists.A measure that shows how influential his image remains in posterity is the fact that he is named in the lineage(silsila) of one of the largest Sufi brotherhoods today, the Naqshbandi order.

Madame Blavatsky, a portadora da luz

Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, ou simplesmente H.P.B., nascida Helena Petrovna Hahn à meia-noite de 30 para 31 de julho de 1831 (12 de agosto pelo calendário russo da época), em Ekaterisnoslav, hoje Ucrânia. O pai era militar e a mãe foi uma renomada romancista que morreu ainda jovem. Sua avó, uma princesa, supervisionou sua educação.
Desde a infância era dotada de poderes psíquicos. Sua vida, desde cedo, foi repleta de viagens. Antes mesmo de completar 20 anos, estava em Londres, quando esbarrou com seu mestre, que ela sempre via em sonhos: Mahatma Morya. Não foi um encontro fortuito, como se depreende de relato da Carta 22: “...após um século de buscas infrutíferas, nossos chefes tiveram de aproveitar a única oportunidade de enviar um corpo europeu ao solo europeu, a fim de servir de laço de união entre aquela terra e a nossa.” Nessa ocasião, conforme Sylvia Cranston, biógrafa de H.P.B., o Mahatma Morya lhe perguntou se aceitava uma missão, a de deixar para nós o legado da Teosofia, através da Sociedade Teosófica, convite que ela não recusou.
Afinal, H.P.B. atendia aos requisitos de que os Mahatmas necessitavam para cumprir a orientação de “esclarecer o mundo”, deixada por Tsong-Kha-Pa, reformador do Budismo, no século XIV. Ela possuía poderes psíquicos desenvolvidos e apresentava credenciais morais. Essa combinação permitiu aos Mahatmas dar continuidade ao plano de fundar a Sociedade Teosófica.
Blavatsky encontrou o Cel. Henry S. Olcott em 1874, fundando com ele a S.T., em 1875. Nesse ínterim de 24 anos - de 1849 a 1874 - H.P.B. foi capacitada pelos Mestres, no Tibete e em viagens por todos os continentes. É o que se pode deduzir de episódios descritos pelos próprios Mestres, em As Cartas dos Mahatmas para A. P. Sinnett. O Mahatma K.H., na Carta 22, confirma o treinamento no Tibete, no mesmo trecho em que explica o papel de Blavastky em relação à sua missão - servir de conexão ou fio de transmissão:

I’m beyond thrilled to announce that I’ve been accepted as a Visiting Fellow at the Center for the Study of World Religions. Working on what I love, in a place that I love, with people that I love...it really doesn’t get any better than that. It’s gonna get a lot more weird around here. #harvard #harvarddivinity #cswr #theosophy #theosophicalsociety #hdstheosophical
