The Purpose of Tragedy
The Purpose of Tragedy
Description
Foreword

The object of this little book is to introduce theosophy as an interpretation of human tragedy. It is the introduction and interpretation of one individual and excludes no other among an almost infinite variety of possible approaches to the subject.

Much of its has necessarily been written in the spirit of " Thus have I heard." Yet the principle that we receive and communicate in this spirit can often become alive and become our own as they are found to respond to the demands of experience.

One short and simple interpretation of human tragedy, human freedom, and many other problems, has been a constant source of illumination to the writer. It is a chapter from The Wonder Child, a little book by C. Jinarajadasa, a revered former President of the Theosophical Society and one who devoted his life to the lightening of human sorrow and the healing of human conflict. This chapter from The Wonder Child is printed as an appendix at the back of this book.

Testimonials

I love your site and although today is my first order, I have been seeing your site for the past several years. Thank you for providing such great art and books to people around the World who can't make it to India as often as we would like.

Heramba Ganapati arrived safely today and was shipped promptly. Another fantastic find from Exotic India with perfect customer service. Thank you. Jai Ganesha Deva
Marc, UK
I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.
