Hindu Pantheon

By Edward Moor, F.R.S.   &  Preface by Manly P. Hall

The first and most complete exposition of the religious iconography of India, this indispensable reference work was written in 1810 and aptly conveys the spirit of East Indian myths, legends, fables, and the intricate symbolism which distinguishes the Eastern mind. Here the great Indian classics, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, are revealed as epic works of wisdom literature. A must for students of philosophy and comparative religion, and collectors of Asiatic art, this is ranks as one of the most complete works on theology and philosophical beliefs of the Hindus.  A photographic facsimile of the original 1810 edition, this folio sized work contains 451 pages of text, 105 pages of engravings and line-art, with a detailed index.

Meditation Symbols in Eastern & Western Mysticism (e-Book)

Mysteries of the Mandala

New PDF e-Book by Manly P. Hall

The fruition of a lifetime of study and interpretation of Eastern and Western mystical symbolism, this classic text explores meditation symbols throughout history in thirteen profusely illustrated chapters. Highlighting such topics as—meditation symbols, meditation, the experience of reality, the Lotus Sutra, and the mystical symbols of Jacob Boehme and other alchemists.

“In order to understand mandala disciplines it is necessary to understand the difference between intelligence and intellectualism. Intelligence is an innate integrity abiding in the soul, and intellectualism is an education of the mind by external study and training. Most mandala diagrams were designed to release internal integrity, whereas the systems of schooling now extant attempt to convert the mind to the acceptance of prevailing doctrines and opinions.

“The purpose of the present book is to emphasize the cultivation of that integrity without which no nation or individual can survive the pressures of a dominant economic materialism. The only solution to modern dilemmas is what Mohandas Gandhi called ‘the victory of soul power over brute force.’ Through the development of meditative disciplines, the sincere person can escape from the shadow of materiality and find the fulfillment of his hopes and aspirations in the light of the ancient way of the sages.
