I am more than happy to inform readers of Theosophy Forwardabout what I have been doing over the past three months. I began doing a series of works based on the Sri Yantra Diagram, one of the ancient Geometrical Symbols used on Hindu Rituals to the Goddess Maha Lakshmi Lalita Tripura Sundari, along with Mantras and paintings of this Deity. One of the Yantras used refers to the Divine Mother. I plan to make at least 43, that is the number of the triangles of this Yantra. All this will be added to my website and Facebook page when I am done with the work. The series of Sri Yantra Manifestations will be on sale for Christmas, 2018.

Inner Spiritual Dimensions - Artwork by Kate Blalack

The artist

Kate is a wonderful young woman from Oklahoma, who for some years now helps out with the publications of Theosophy Forward, both as an installer and assistant-editor. She is creative, very talented and we are fortunate that she is willing to make some of her art work available for our readers in this, and upcoming issues. 

She works with the realm of the elementals, which should be familiar to Theosophists. Each of her creations are a surrealist-interpretation of her dialogue with the astral realms. Since a very early age she has been fascinated with the outer-edges of reality; the places where dream, imagination and vision combine. While her creations might be haunting to some viewers, this is only because they force a person to confront the very deep and powerful magic of their own minds. She aims to make visual  the "unseen" (i.e. occult) in everyday life. The panels come with an explanation by Kate.

Am adding more items to my Theosophical Memorabilialike a second edition of “The Secret Doctrine”, 1888, Volume I – Cosmogenesis. Contrary to the other major editions of “The Secret Doctrine”, this one does not have the blueish contemporary cloth with golden gilt symbols of the TS, but is has a beautiful brown contemporary cloth, with black designs and the same gold gilt TS symbols. This completes my set of “The Secret Doctrine” First Major Editions, starting with the original W. Q. J. first 1888 edition, New York, the original 1893 “revised edition”, the original 1895 index and the original 1897 “volume III”.

Human Dimensions

The two-dimensional surface cast with blacks and whites, all shades of gray, primary and complimentary colors allows for a very realistic reflection of the three dimensional world. But every photographer and painter alike knows that people are not merely three dimensional.

In January 2013 I attended the School of the Wisdom at The Theosophical Society in Adyar, directed by Dr. Ravi Ravindra: "With Krishna in the Battle of Life - Life Lessons from the Bhagavad Gita". 

During the three weeks there I met up with many interesting Theosophists from all over the world. There was also a group from New Delhi, which I became friends with and visited the following years. Finally, one of them, my good friend Vedamrita, introduced me to some street kids she takes care of. She visits with them several times a week, usually makes them clean up a bit, and then takes them to lunch. She also tries to get them to go to school and checks on what they have learned. 

The mostly alcoholic adults of these large families need the children for income, so they make them sell flowers, balloons and other small items on the main street next to the narrow street isle they live on. In rush hour traffic, or when the traffic lights turn red, the kids go from car to car peddling their stuff.

This particular family is from a village close to Alwar in Rajasthan – according to their stories, the wells are drying up and they cannot survive as farmers – therefore they move to New Delhi to survive. 
In the three photos we can see ONE) Sumit, an exceptionally bright young boy, TWO) his joyful little brother Hanuman and THREE) his uncle with his daughter, whose names I do not recall.

I was very touched by the joy these kids radiate. Whenever I am in New Delhi, I try to visit with them.
These photos are from a visit in March 2016.

In a previous issue of Theosophy Forwardin the category THE SOCIETY, you’ll find a mini-interview with Armand, who is a Russian Theosophist. His interview wasn’t the most detailed or longest we’ve ever published over the past years, but Armand is certainly an interesting friend of ours and a very talented artist.
