The White Lotus of Consciousness – HPB

By Luphil

8 May is the day of the passing of Mme Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831-1891) and it is celebrated as the White Lotus Day. She is regarded as the white lotus that unfolds afresh the beauty and fragrance of new age wisdom. Inspired by the teachings of H.P.B., as she is also called, thousands of groups sprang up all around the globe. She continues to be an inspiration to many seekers of wisdom all around the globe. I once made a little brochure (in 4 languages) about her life and work.

During the last December Call in Bangalore, Master Kumar advised the group:

“Daily read a bit of Mme Blavatsky, of Secret Doctrine or Isis Unveiled, it can redress our energy and set it to a right order. It gives a direct impact on you.”

And when asked how to relate to the books of Blavatsky, he said:

“First of all, buy the books, don’t borrow them. Then read a page daily. There are terminologies from so many theologies. Every word you don’t understand you look up to the Theosophical Glossary, you can download it. When you read, underline the word you don’t understand, look up the same work through Google. Reading a page is not reading a page in a newspaper. The page will expose you to so much knowledge. If you read five sentences, relate to the glossary and Google, likewise you start reading. Reading Secret Doctrine daily is only to relate to the wisdom given in various parts on the planet. The Madam uses the terminology of nearly all the cultures, Inkas, Mayas, … It is a grand work. By relating to it, your comprehension grows, you would not more be so pig-headed thinking you know everything without knowing anything. If you open Blavatsky you know that you don’t know anything. Any part of the planet she presents and compares. How is it possible? Enquiring to the glossaries makes you humble.”

Have a good White Lotus Day
