The Unconditioned Mind is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and IndieBound.


Theosophical Network member and blogger Rene Waldow has published a thought-provoking review of Robert Epstein’s The Quotable Krishnamurti.

“At each step toward deeper awareness, Krishnamurti highlights the difficulties, how we are unaware of distortions, how wanting to do good, we create new distortions.  He does not give direct advice on how to go beyond the distortions. The hope is probably that by being more aware of the subtle types of distortions, we will not fall into the traps.  Awareness may lead to a disintegration of the distortions.  Beyond the distortions, there may be something we might call ‘reality’ or ‘the way things are’, but even that is not sure because if anyone has reached that stage, he has not come back to describe it.  Thus the one ‘oneliner’ remains the key to the talks ‘Truth is a pathless land.’”

The Theosophical Order of Service (TOS) has reviewed Russian Magic:Living Folk Traditions of an Enchanted by Cherry Gilchrist!

 Cherrry Gilchrist has written a useful book on the structure of Russian folklore, its main characters such as the Firebird and the Snowmaiden, and its impact on folk crafts, mainly rural house building, painted lacquer boxes and Matrioshka dolls. There are hints of broader issues such as the use of folklore in high culture, by composers such as Rimsky-Korsakov and Stravinski and writers like Pushkin. —Rene Wadlow, TOS

The Theosophical Order of Service (TOS) has reviewed Dr. Jean Houston’s Hero and the Goddess!3d-cover



Houston stresses the idea of the journey as a process of initiation with the initiators receiving as well as giving initiations and learning. All the initiators, apart from the Cyclops, are female, a shift from the emphasis on the heroes at the center of the action of The Iliad, thus giving rise to the hypothesis of a woman author of The Odyssey. As Houston notes “Throughout The Odyssey, the earthy feminine powers — Circe, Calypso, Penelope — are seen weaving threads and wearing braided hair. They hold the powers that weave things together; they braid realities into gossamer webs that make it possible to recover something of what had been lost after the warrior-nomad invasions.” —Rene Wadlow, TOS

The Theosophical Order of Service (TOS) March book review is Howard Murphet’s Hammer on the Mountain: The Life of Henry Steel Olcott.  Read the full review here.

The leadership of Henry S. Olcott and the work of the Theosophical Society in quickening cultural life among Buddhists is important as a historical precedent — one which merits attention, not only because of its significance in the past, but also because Buddhist-influenced Southern Asia, from Sri Lanka to Japan, is currently trying to deal with many of these issues.
