DEATH AND AFTER - THEOSOPHICAL MANUALS BY ANNIE BESANT PREFACE FEW words are needed in sending this little book out into the world. It is the third of a series of Manuals designed to meet the public demand for a simple exposition of Theosophical teachings. Some have complained that our literature is at once too abstruse, too technical, and too expensive for the ordinary reader, and it is our hope that the present series may succeed in supplying what is a very real want. Theosophy is not only for the learned it is for all. Perhaps among those who in these little books catch their first glimpse of its teachings, there may be a few who will be led by them to penetrate more deeply into its philosophy, its science, and its religion, facing its abstruser problems with the students eal and the neophytes ardour. But these Manuals are not written for the eager student, whom no initial difficulties can daunt they are written for the busy men and women of the worka day world, and seek to make plain some of the great truths that render life easier to bear and death easier to face. Written by servants of the Masters who are the Elder Brothers of our race, they can have no other object than to serve our fellowmen. CONTENTS: Views of Death The Immortal and the Perishable The Fate of the Body The Fate of the Etheric Double Kamaloka, Desireland, and ithe Fate of Passions and Desires The Shells The Elementaries Devachan The Devachani The Return to Earth Nirvana Communications between Earth and other Spheres Appendix Suicides Index
