Description
Back of Book:

Hardly a moment of our waking life passes without any thoughts. We take it that these being silent and unnoticed by others are just nothings. How serious an error this could be, is clearly brought out in this book with the aid of many picturesque coloured plates and graphic drawings. Every passing thought is that much of a power for good or evil, for us and others as well, in the measure of its quality and intensity. Here is the first lesson on leading a responsible life.

Publishers' Note:

THIS book was first published in 1901. Since that time it has been through successive printings in English and has been published in several languages. In the eighth reprint some passages no longer relevant today have been deleted and some explanatory footnotes added. The main thesis of the book remains intact and the original language of the authors has been retained. The original colour plates, painted under the direction of the authors, have been used.

Foreword:

THE text of this little book is the joint work of Mr. Leadbeater and myself. The drawing and painting of the thought-forms observed by Mr. Leadbeater or by myself, or by both of us together, has been done by three friends-Mr. John Varley, Mr. Prince and Miss Macfarlane, to each of whom we tender our cordial thanks. To paint in earth's dull colors the forms clothed in the living light of other worlds is a hard and thankless task; so much the more gratitude is due to those who have attempted it. They needed colored fire, and had only ground earths. We have also to thank Mr. F. Bligh Bond for allowing us to use his essay on Vibration Figures, and some of his exquisite drawings. Another friend, who sent us some notes and a few drawings, insists on remaining anonymous, so we can only send our thanks to him with similar anonymity.

It is our earnest hope-as it is our belief-that this little book will serve as a striking moral lesson to every reader, making him realize the nature and power of his thoughts, acting as a stimulus to the noble, a curb on the base. With this belief and hope we send it on its way.

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
