A message from Herman C. Vermeulen – Blavatsky House, The Hague, The Netherlands
We would like to present to you our first digital edition of the magazine Lucifer, the messenger of Light in English. Click here
In 1979 some members of the Dutch section of The Theosophical Society Point Loma Blavatskyhouse took the initiative to start a Theosophical magazine. We did not want to write about ‘technical’ Theosophy. Primarily, we wanted to show the practical value of Theosophy.
The Dutch Lucifer has been in print for thirty-four years now. We have published articles about almost every aspect of society. The range of subjects varies from social problems, to drugs and medicine, to scientific issues like climate change and evolution. Sometimes we have also tried to explain less understood aspects of Theosophy.
Lucifer in English
In the last few years a better communication and understanding has arisen between all kinds of theosophists and theosophical organizations in different countries. We were happy to be able to participate in international congresses. Often we were asked about our vision on many issues and about our working methods. We had already published articles in our Dutch Lucifer about many of those ideas.
So, naturally we started to produce an English written Lucifer, in a language that is not only understood in English speaking countries, but all over the world.
Here we present our first digital edition of Lucifer, the messenger of Light in English. It contains articles about Râja and Hatha Yoga, Emanation, Addiction and attachments, the Bodhisattva vow, Organ donation and — to get to know us better — we have also published an article about the Point Loma tradition in this issue.
Do you know of others who might be interested in this magazine, please feel free to forward this e-mail.
On behalf of the editors and all co-workers I hope you will enjoy reading Lucifer.
