THE GREAT SACRIFICE

THE GREAT SACRIFICE

Location Birmingham UK
Dates 18-23rd October 2015

The concept of “sacrifice” seems to be grafted in the very fabric of world religions and spiritual philosophies. The manifestation of the universe itself is frequently seen as a supreme act of sacrifice made by the Logos, who limits itself in order to give birth to innumerable centres of consciousness. This sacrificial act is reflected on all levels—from the divine incarnations assuming physical form in order to guide humanity, to the offering of lower forms of life for the sustenance of the higher ones. As H. P. Blavatsky records in her Gems From The East: “Life is built up by the sacrifice of the individual to the whole. Each cell in the living body must sacrifice itself to the perfection of the whole; when it is otherwise, disease and death enforce the lesson.” Likewise,following this universal Principle, the spiritual aspirant must learn to give up his separate life before he can participate in a conscious union with the whole.

 

The European School of Theosophy this year will explore the subject in all its different facets – metaphysical, mythological, spiritual, and ethical, in the light of the Theosophical teachings as well as some of the major world religions.
