In today's episode we kick off a new series on the life and essential teachings of Manly P. Hall, the great America philosopher, sage, and initiate of 20th century America. In particular, our focus in this series will be on Hall's teachings about the current state of the world, the role the Mystery Schools continue to play in it, and what is to come in the new age we are, in fits and starts, gradually moving into.
In this first article of the series, I discuss Manly Hall's path to becoming an esoteric philosopher, and overview some of his early teachings on the inner structure of the Mystery Schools. I also discuss how these Schools fit into a larger spiritual concept of life.
In the article's concluding section, I analyze Helena Blavatsky and her relationship with the "Mahatmas" - looking at the production of her magnum opus "The Secret Doctrine" as a case study to analyze the archetypal guru-disciple relationship that characterizes the Mystery Schools.
