The Astral Plane

2.00 1.00

Few words are needed in sending this little book out into the world. It
is the fifth of a series of Manuals designed to meet the public demand
for a simple exposition of Theosophical teachings. Some have
complained that our literature is at once too abstruse, too technical,
and too expensive for the ordinary reader, and it is our hope that the
present series may succeed in supplying what is a very real want.
Theosophy is not only for the learned; it is for all. Perhaps among
those who in these little books catch their first glimpse of its teachings,
there may be a few who will be led by them to penetrate more deeply
into its philosophy, its science and its religion, facing its abstruser
problems with the student’s zeal and the neophyte’s ardour. But these
Manuals are not written for the eager student, whom no initial
difficulties can daunt; they are written for the busy men and women of
the work-a-day world, and seek to make plain some of the great truths
that render life easier to bear and death easier to face. Written by
servants of the Masters who are the Elder Brothers of our race, they
can have no other object than to serve our fellow-men.

Reference to the astral plane, or Kâmaloka as it is called in Sanskrit, has frequently been made by Theosophical writers, and a good deal of information on the subject of this realm of nature is to be found scattered here and there in our books; but there is not, so far as I am aware, any single volume to which one can turn for a complete summary of the facts at present known to us about this interesting region. The object of this manual is to collect and make some attempt to arrange this scattered information, and also to supplement it slightly in cases where new facts have come to our knowledge. It must be understood that any such additions are only the result of the investigations of a few explorers, and must not, therefore, be taken as in any way authoritative, but are given simply for what they are
worth. On the other hand every precaution in our power has been taken to ensure accuracy, no fact, old or new, being admitted to this manual unless it has been confirmed by the testimony of at least two independent trained investigators among ourselves, and has also been passed as correct by older students whose knowledge on these points is necessarily much greater than ours. It is hoped, therefore, that this account of the astral plane, though it cannot be considered as quite complete, may yet be found reliable as far as it goes.
