White Lotus Day

Yesterday was the White Lotus Day, the day for the commemoration of the passing-over of Helena P. Blavatsky (H.P.B.1831 – 1891). Since many years I have been fascinated by this extraordinary women so much disputed until today. In 1996 I wrote a little report about her and published it last year: “H.P.B. – Trailblazer for the Aquarian Age” (Engl./Ger./Span./Fre., you can download it as a pdf). I have read several times her major work the Secret Doctrine, and also other writings, and done 2/3 of the German translation of her fascinating and volumenous travel reports “From the Caves and Jungles of Hindoustan“. The biography of Sylvia Cranston about “H. P. B.: The Extraordinary Life and Influence of Helena Blavatsky” gives a very good insight.
Through her work, H.P. B. caused violent reactions, which ranged from fervent admiration to libel and slander. Her most resolute enemies were from circles of the church as well as of spiritualists, who both felt questioned to their very foundations by the teachings of Blavatsky. The goal of Blavatsky was nothing less than to deliver the death blow to the prevailing scientific materialism and religious dogmatism by pointing to the spiritual truths of the immortal wisdom teachings and by making them available to a larger public.
I don’t know of any cinema film made about her life, I think it would be a most thrilling subject, not only because of her adventurous life, but also because she is a living example of the spiritual awakening of humanity, which today has greatly increased and of which she was a vanguard.
