Michael Laughrin, Noted practitioner of Jyotish and student of Metaphysics.

Michael Laughrin’s Favorite Metaphysical Books (Alphabetical by Author, 2004, www.jyotish.ws)
By Michael Laughrin, Michael@jyotish.ws

  1. Esoteric Christianity by Annie Besant will be of interest to those who wish to see the connections between Christianity and Vedic knowledge. Ms. Besant was one of the leaders of the Theosophical movement of about 120 years ago.
  2. Esoteric Philosophy of Love and Marriage by Dion Fortune reveals the hidden forces at play concerning sexuality, love, and attraction. It also reveals much of the underlying philosophy prevalent in English metaphysical groups of about 100 years ago.
  3. Daughters of the Goddess: The Women Saints of India by Linda Johnsen gives brief but wonderful mini-biographies based on the author’s experience with a number of modern day female saints.
  4. Maharaj by T. S. Anantha Murthy is a biography of Shriman Tapasviji Maharaj, an Indian saint who lived for 185 years and performed many miracles. This book is endlessly inspirational. MUST READ
  5. Magus of Strovolos: The Extraordinary World Of A Spiritual Healer by Kyriacos C. Markides is the true-life account of a 20th century man of knowledge who lived on Cyprus and performed many healings and miracles. Also many deep psychic phenomena are explained in this book.
  6. Yogis, Destiny and the Wheel of Time by K. N. Rao is a wonderful, contemporary volume that has chapters on many of modern India’s living treasures – her saints.
  7. The Complete Ascension Manual for the Aquarian Age: How to Achieve Ascension in This Lifetime, Vol. 1 by Joshua David Stone is part of the Western occult tradition. He nicely links together all major religions and tells the story of life, higher states of consciousness and enlightenment from a fresh (to most of us) perspective.
  8. Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramanhansa Yogananda. I seldom read any book more than once, but I have read this book 6 times. This classic is simple enough for a schoolboy but profound enough for an advanced yogi. MUST BUY
  9. Science of Being and Art of Living: Transcendental Meditation by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi sings the song of life using fresh, modern language that can be understood by any literate reader. MUST READ
