Sacred Texts

In this section we will post various sacred texts referred to in the articles on this site. Though some are available in print, we felt these were so essential that we wanted to have them readily available for our readers until they add them to their libraries.

  • The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ — In 1908 a book appeared on the shelves of American bookstores that was destined to garner interest throughout the world, so much so that today it has gone through more than seventy editions in America alone. This book was The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ by Levi H. Dowling.It evoked a response in those who intuited and sought for a deeper meaning of the person and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. Many at that time, as well as today, could not honestly accept the limited interpretation of Jesus and His words that was offered by “Churchianity”–an acceptance that would have obligated them to reject Him as but one of many misperceiving religionists of the past. For them the Aquarian Gospel was truly Light in Darkness, a fount of life-giving knowledge.
  • The Bhagavad Gita (arranged in verses for singing) by Abbot George Burke (Swami Nirmalananda Giri)
  • The Maharshi Gita — This is an arrangement of verses of the Bhagavad Gita made by Sri Ramana Maharshi that gives an overview of the essential message of the Gita.
  • The Odes of Solomon — Written in the first Christian century, some of the Odes are thought to be compositions of Jesus, passed down by his disciples. This translation of the Odes is the work of Hierodeacon Simeon Goldstein.
