Interesting rundown on reincarnation and Karma from the Hindu perspective. It clarifies the belief very well. The author seems to infer however that all beliefs believe in a form of reincarnation and that all religion at one time or another believed in the same way that Hinduism does. If my take on it is true, I think is a bit ridiculous but maybe I'm reading between the lines too much. In the book, he mentions the spirit and how most religions believe in it. While it's true that most religions [...]
William Walker Atkinson explains in easy to understand language the meaning of Reincarnation and the Law of Karma. He presents arguments both supporting and against the beliefs. He, also, discusses the various ways that religions/cultures (Eqyptian, Druids, Essene, Greek, Hindu, Roman, and Christianity in it's early and present forms)and great thinkers have incorporated or refuted the beliefs. Very well organized and written.
A fascinating insight into eastern religions and the western views.
I really enjoyed this book for the well generalized overview of major religious and theosophical views on reincarnation and karma. It is full of interesting quotes and tidbits regarding the interpretation of the substance of life itself. For instance:" "A perfected man must have experienced every type of earthy realtion and duty, every phase of desire, affection and passion, every form of temptation and every variety of conflict. No one life can possibly furnish the material for more than a minu [...]
The first portion of this book is somewaht complex because it decscribes the various Schools of Reincarnation thought - all the subtle nuances between them. I found it very tedious to get through. However as you get past one-third of the book, it then gives the reasoning why Reincartion makes the most sense. And then in the last third, it gets somewhat tedious again. That said, if you are not famailar with the idea of reincarnation or the pros and cons that go with it, then the middle part of th [...]
One of the best books on the subject of reincarnation I have ever read. I would have finished this book a long time ago had I realized it ended at 93%. Although there is a great deal to learn from this book, it can be summed up in the last couple of pages. Wonderful read and I highly recommend it for anyone interested in what is referred to in this book (because of the time period it is written in) as occult principles of reincarnation.
I sincerely enjoyed this book. It certainly broadened my horizons and actually cleared up many questions I've always had about reincarnation. It is written with the attempt to be unbiased and show both sides of the reincarnation debate and I think it did a relatively good job of that. Simply, this was an interesting and thought provoking read, to say the least. I was a little saddened that it had to come to an end.
No comments yet, will write one when I'm done with the book, so far it has been a great and enjoyable read.
Interesting to read the thoughts from different cultures. Still so much to understand about this subject.
