Book Description

From the Back of the Book:

Occultism is much more than the Indian rope trick, as Ernest Wood points out in this highly interesting account of the practice of the 'real occult' in India. Genuine Occultism, the author explains, seeks the pure, eternal life, beyond the restrictions of time and space. The real occult is that which is hidden from those who cannot raise in thought beyond attachment to 'limited states of consciousness'.

The average Hindu acknowledges that abnormal psychic powers may come to an aspirant who is in pursuit of the Truth. But he takes care that they do not lure him for his real ideal. For such a seeker 'occultism' is the science of life, or the science of the Self.

Ernest Wood makes a comprehensive presentation of the various types of yoga that, when rightly practiced, will lead to spiritual illumination. The book ends with a very useful chapter that gives practical guidance on meditation.

About the Author:

Ernest Wood, scholar, writer and lecturer, was born in 18883 in England and was attracted to Theosophy at a young age. He arrived in India early in the twentieth century, and assisted Annie Besant in educational work. He was the founder of the Theosophical College, Madanapalle, and principal of the Sind National College, Hyderaba (now in Pakistan). Professor Wood wrote many books on philosophical subjects, but had a particular interest in Yoga. After World War II, he went to the United States, where he was for several years President and Dean of the American Academy of Asian Studies in San Francisco and later joined the staff of the University of Houston, Texas.
