The Ancient Wisdom
This book is intended to place in the hands of the general reader an epitome of theosophical teachings,
sufficiently plain to serve the elementary student, and sufficiently full to lay a sound foundation for further
knowledge.
It is hoped that it may serve as an introduction to the profounder works of H.P.Blavatsky, and
be a convenient steppingstone to their study.
Those who have learned a little of the Ancient Wisdom know the illumination, the peace, the joy, the
strength, its lessons have brought into their lives. That this book may win some to con its teachings,and
to prove for themselves their value, is the prayer with which it is sent forth into the world.
Annie Besant,
August 1897

"Man is regarded as a trinity, Taoism, recognising in him the spirit, the mind, and the body. This division comes out clearly in the Classic of Purity, in the teaching that man must get rid of desire to reach union with the One :

Now the spirit of man loves purity, but his mind disturbs it. The mind of man loves stillness, but his
desires draw it away. If he could always send his desires away, his mind of itself would be still. Let his
mind be made clean, and his spirit of itself becomes pure ….The reason why men are not able
to attain to this is because their minds have not been cleansed, and their desires have not been sent
away. If one is able to send the desires away, when he then looks at his mind it is no longer his: when he
looks out at his body it is no longer his ; and when he looks farther off at external things, they are things
which he has nothing to do with ...."

Re: The Ancient Wisdom
Thank you OP.
I just breezed through it and it sounds much like the books from Alice Bailey, of which I have studied for many years.

my question is this. why are these teachings of the nature of the soul not taught in school?

is the ancient wisdom school of thought so ancient that we dismiss it all just because it has Indian terminology?

I try to live in the faith that there is a higher plan for us all and that the Will to Good is the only way to live.

And in that faith must exist Trust.
And therein lies my struggle, for I see the outcome of "things" like elections and I wonder "How can I trust the Universe when I live surrounded by the failings and "Little Wills of Men"...??

Peace.

- maybe because so few feel qualified to teach something so important.....much has been forgotten due to "popular culture".

- not likely in my opinion.
I try to live in the faith that there is a higher plan for us all and that the Will to Good is the only way to live.

- Good question, all I can say is that sometimes even those who consider themselves aware are still only able to "see" a part of the whole.

Peace.

Re: The Ancient Wisdom
The Theosophical teaching about there being seven planes of consciousness has now been proved mathematically to be represented in sacred geometries. See:
[link to smphillips.8m.com]
Students of the Ancient Wisdom do not need to rely on the authority of great teachers like Annie Besant. They can actually see the truth of this spiritual knowledge for themselves if they examine the new discoveries that have been made at this website linking Theosophy, particle physics, mystical traditions and sacred geometries. Moreover, these discoveries provide an entry point and tools that enable the student to develop such teachings far beyond the written word so that they can experience directly the amazing truth embodied in the Ancient Wisdom.

Re: The Ancient Wisdom
Or is the meaning of "Trinity" that 2+1=3.

TWO (a man and a woman) procreate and create ONE (their progency) which equals THREE. The "miracle" of creating life.

There is a birth of those who have put off the corrupt body, and entered the gate to live as translated solid plants planted firmly in good soil, and have arrived at the flowering age. They are no longer little saplings.
