This engaging film by Australian Theosophist, Phillip Lindsay is about the evolution of consciousness, drawing from Hindu, Jewish, Persian, Islamic, Buddhist, Gnostic, Celtic and Christian traditions, using rich visuals and soothing music worthy of a big screen TV.
The audiovisual feast starts with how our Solar System came into existence, with its subsequent planetary schemes, chains, rounds and globes, revealing the secret chronology of human history, from ancient Lemuria and Atlantis to our current “root race”, while following the natural cyclic deluges between races, according to The Secret Doctrine by Helena Blavatsky.
The Secret Doctrine derives from Blavatsky’s translations and interpretations of ancient Tibetan Buddhist scrolls which she called the “Stanzas of the Dzyan”. Some believe this referred to parts of the Dzogchen tradition of Tibetan Buddhist wisdom called the “secret” or “inner” teachings. Buddhism was founded by a Hindu prince and contains many Vedic precepts, including the concepts of Karma, the Yuga system of time cycles and the belief in the extreme antiquity of humankind, going back millions of years.
Some Theosophist ideas run counter to Abrahamic and scientific beliefs but one need not feel the need to accept or reject these philosophies and simply embark on this intriguing exploration.
