Today there is a growing dissatisfaction with the sterile mechanical framework that has come to dominate our lives. In Basic Theosophy: The Living Wisdom, Geoffrey Hodson returns to us what we unconsciously gave up when we chose to pursue a culture of material production! The philosophy is not a dreamy world-negating doctrine but rather affirms the divinity of the universe, the immortality of the soul of man and the ultimate unity of creation with the absolute. This is the ageless wisdom told in the Vedas, Puranas and Upanishads.. It is a message about reality, about science, art, philosophy, psychology, cosmology, medicine and mathematics forming integrated elements in a science of life. Hodson’s clairvoyance allowed him to attain an intimate understanding of the universality of being., knowledge and joy and to achieve a deep and genuine sympathy with creation. He has synthesized a vast body of material with an impressive clarity that makes this text ideal for those setting out on their spiritual journey. The value of this book lies in its simplicity and applicability to the conduct of everyday life. To conquer the mind and achieve purity of heart is to attain the inner peace which we all seek.
