The religious life is a life of love and understanding, serving to unite all people and all beings in one Whole, not to divide. In this brilliant series of lectures, Annie Besant, former President of The Theosophical Society (1907-33), delves into the world's seven great religions, to bring out the role of the religions in uniting and elevating the world. Small in compass, but peerless in depth and wisdom, this collection provides essential knowledge about Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Jainism and Sikhism, culminating in the fountainhead of all religions, the Divine Wisdom or Theosophy. In this book, students of religion, as well as practitioners will find a source of inspiration and knowledge, urging all towards purity of life, universal love and aspiration to Truth. This book is an imprint of the Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar, and is imported from India.
