Purification and the Higher Spiritual Path

Thursday, June 6, 7 p.m. CT

Purification and the Higher Spiritual Path William Wilson Quinn 6.6.24. 1In Theosophy, the “Higher Spiritual Path” refers to the special case that hastens the process towards spiritual realization by qualifying an aspirant for direct guidance under a spiritual teacher or Master of the Wisdom. This is the path toward probation, chelaship, and ultimately initiation into that immemorial Order of Adepts, certain of whom were the teachers and guru of H.P. Blavatsky. The best such single word may well be “purification,” but describing efforts to purify not just the physical body, but also one’s thoughts, words, and deeds — the Outer and the Inner Self.
