|Blavatsky’s most widely read book, The Voice of the Silence, has profound significance in mystical literature. This series of six online classes will explore its practical aspects and delve deeply into its timeless wisdom. Our journey begins with an introduction to The Voice, exploring the path that opens only to those who long for union with the Divine; and its intricate connection to the self. We will delve into Blavatsky’s interpretation of knowledge, truth, belief, and enlightenment challenging conventional wisdom and revealing a transcendental epistemology. In addition, we will look into the mystical experiences described in The Voice, and the relationship between sense impressions and higher states of consciousness. Ultimately, we will discover that The Voice of the Silence is not a mere booklet but a treasure trove of practical wisdom uncovering a transformative power for those who dare to listen to the soundless sound.
