Review by Stacy Bertrand:
Every once in a while a book will come along that earns a special place in my library. This is one of those books.
Most books on magic, Kabalah ( however you want to spell it ), and the occult are fluff...parables to keep the uninitiated chasing thier tails and scratching thier heads. I have come across few that lay out the fundamental truths to life the universe and All. So many people claim to be an occultist or mystic but do they really know what forces they are manipulating...how thier mind works in that magical realm...the true effects of our will being imposed on nature...or for that fact what nature is? A student, practioner, mystic, mage, that is really trying to do the Great Work will educate themselves on the fundamentals of thier craft...how and why it works...
So many times I come across Christians, Pagans..etc...and ask them where thier craft comes from, how it works, WHY it works...When I am lucky I get a long lineage of teachers...gods..prophets etc...that led the way for that particular belief system. I fooled myself when I thought other followers of magick would at least do better than thier Christian brethren and at least research thier belief structure beyond what clergy/teachers say...to question and search for the reason why truth is truth, where it comes from and how it works the universe.
If you want to know why those spirits you call up come to your circle...if you want to know how Jesus walked on water...if you want to know why as sure as thinking a thought is as much a sin as acting the thought out...if you want to know how God heals...if you want to truly understand why...how...where your magic or religion works then put down the wand, put down the door knocker of the next victim you are going to lead to the kingdom of heaven, and start educating yourself on the science of magic, the science of religion, the science of spirituality...how it works on the brain, in our lives, how it affects the universe around us...this book is a good start.
Do yourself a favor. If you are a seeker of truth, knowledge, magic, spirituality, religion, physics etc...must read book!
Franz Hartmann (1838-1912) - was a German physician, theosophist, occultist, geomancer, astrologer, author of esoteric and occultism works. Franz Hartmann wrote esoteric studies and a biography of Jakob Bohme and of Paracelsus. He translated the Bhagavad Gita into German and was the editor of the journal Lotusbluten. He was at one time a co-worker of Helena Blavatsky at Adyar. In 1896 he founded a German Theosophical Society. He also supported the Guido-von-List-Society (Guido-von-List-Gesellschaft). He cofounded the Ordo Templi Orientis with Carl Kellner and Theodor Reuss.
Hartmann was born November 22, 1838, in Bavaria, Germany, though he claimed descent on his mother's side from the old Irish kings of Ulster. He became a physician and immigrated to the United States in 1865, traveling as a doctor to various cities and also visiting Indian tribes and studying their religious beliefs. He became interested in Spiritualism and later corresponded with leading Theosophists after the founding of the Theosophical Society in 1875.
Hartmann was invited to the society's headquarters at Adyar, India, where he lived during the furor over Helena Petrovna Blavatsky 's alleged miracle working. He published his own Report of Observations During a Nine Months' Stay at the Headquarters of the Theosophical Society at Adyar (Madras), India (1884).
When Richard Hodgson of the Society for Psychical Research, London, published his devastating exposure of claimed trickery and fraudulent phenomena by Blavatsky in 1885, Hartmann accompanied her to Europe and then returned to his hometown in Bavaria. There he claimed to have encountered a sect of secret Rosicrucians from whom he acquired many mystical insights. He was president of the Theosophical Society in Germany for a brief period, but eventually resigned to found independent societies. During his later years he spent much time in the Untersberg Mountains near Salzburg, Austria, where he believed he encountered gnomes, water nymphs, and other nature spirits and also wrote his more memorable books. He died at Kempten, Bavaria, August 7, 1912.
