In this issue of Lucifer – the Messenger of Light we briefly present the three Fundamental Propositions and seven Jewels of Wisdom.

Theosophy stretches over all fields of human thought. However, it is based on only three fundamental propositions, given by H.P. Blavatsky in The Secret Doctrine. These propositions can be elaborated in seven principal ideas, called the seven Jewels of Wisdom. You can find traces of these teachings in the books of the world religions and great philosophical systems, as is shown in the last article of this issue.

Articles in this issue:

  • The three key thoughts of Theosophy
  • The seven Jewels of Wisdom and their inspiring value:
    • 1. Reincarnation
    • 2. Karma
    • 3. Hierarchies
    • 4. Self-becoming
    • 5. Progressive evolution
    • 6. The two paths
    • 7. Knowledge of the Self
  • Recognizing the seven Jewels in world religions

In 1979 some members of the Dutch section of The Theosophical Society Point Loma took the initiative to start a theosophical magazine.

Here we present our first edition of Lucifer, the messenger of Light in English. It is composed of translations of some articles that were published in our Dutch magazine (‘Rāja and Hatha Yoga’ and ‘Like a stream from its source’). But you will find also an article that is a direct result of a lecture given in one of the theosophical congresses (‘Addiction and attachments’) as well as a lecture on the Bodhisattva vow. To get to know us better, in this issue we have also published an article about the Point Loma tradition.

Articles in this issue:

  • Lucifer — The Messenger of Light
  • The Point Loma tradition
  • Vow to benefit mankind
  • How we emanate from our source
  • Rāja and Hatha Yoga
  • Addictions and attachments
