The Rosicrucian Fellowship publishes and sells books on Esoteric Christianity and Philosophy, Spiritual Astrology and Bible Interpretation. Max Heindel, an Initiate of the Rosicrucian Order, founded The Rosicrucian Fellowship and wrote his many books based on firsthand knowledge of occult facts.
This book gives a complete outline of the Western Wisdom Teaching as far as it may be made public at the present time. It contains a comprehensive outline of the evolutionary processes of man and the universe, correlating science with religion. Max Heindel, the author, received this Teaching personally from the Rosicrucian Brotherhood. It is their latest communication.
Part I is a treatise on the Visible and the Invisible Worlds, Man and the Method of Evolution, Rebirth and the Law of Cause and Effect.
Part II takes up the scheme of Evolution in general and the Evolution of the Solar System and the Earth in particular.
Part III treats of Christ and His Mission, Future Development of Man and Initiation, Esoteric Training and a Safe Method of Acquiring Firsthand Knowledge.
Delivering these twenty lectures in person was one of the earliest activities of the authorized Messenger of the Rosicrucian Order, Max Heindel. This book is a comprehensive outline, with modern application, of the ancient truths of Rosicrucianism.

This volume contains questions and answers from early issues of the Echoes newsletter and Rays From the Rose Cross magazine which, with a few exceptions, have never been published in book form.

Max Heindel has written the sublime truths of the Western Wisdom Teachings in almost narrative style in this book intended specially to give busy people a solution to life's basic problems as contained in the mind- and heart-satisfying Rosicrucian Philosophy.
This is the book for the busy man who is seeking a solution to the Great Mystery called Life but lacks leisure to wade through volumes of metaphysical speculation.

There are ninety-seven letters written in the intimate friendly tone of a teacher and friend, extending from Christmas of 1910 to January of 1919. After his passing, these priceless letters were published in book form for the inspiration and instruction of all.

These Myths conceal many of the hidden truths which are now being translated from symbol and allegory, and this attractive book is the key to these poetic tales of evolution, sacrifice and unfoldment.
This book is compiled from the writings of an Initiate of the Rosicrucian Order. It comprises a series of lessons issued by Max Heindel to his students, together with various public addresses.

It explains in terms of Mystic Masonry the conflict between the Sons of Seth and the Sons of Cain and unravels the allegory dealing with the building of Solomon's Temple, the Queen of Sheba and the Grand Master, Hiram Abiff.
The Western Wisdom School teaches as its fundamental maxim that "all occult development begins with the vital body," stated Max Heindel, Initiate of the Order of the Rose Cross. It is therefore with the purpose of presenting in a concise and easily understood form all the important information which the founder of The Rosicrucian Fellowship wrote in his various letters, lessons and books concerning the etheric vehicle that this compiled material is published in book form. To the layman in occult study, as well as to the advanced student, it offers much of practical value.
Man, the indwelling Spirit, has at his present stage of development four vehicles through which he functions: the dense physical body, the vital body, the desire body, and the mind. Although these bodies are closely interrelated and are affected by each other, it is helpful to the student in understanding thoroughly their functions and possibilities to study each one separately and intensively. To facilitate such study Max Heindel's material concerning the desire body has been collected and published in this one convenient volume.
The desire body of man is his vehicle of feelings, desires, wishes and emotions. It is responsible for all his actions, reveling in unrestrained motion. If unbridled it makes the body do all the unnecessary and undignified things which are so detrimental to soul growth. However, that temper which is such a great menace when it takes control, may be as effective for service under proper guidance. Hence the temper of the desire body must be controlled but not by any means killed.
The Western Wisdom Teachings therefore emphasize the transmuting of the lower desires into higher ones through service motivated by devotion to high ideals. This generates the Emotional Soul, essential nourishment for the evolving Spirit.
This book tells us that Christ will return in an etheric, not a physical body. Hence mankind must develop the etheric body to the point where they can function in it consciously before Christ will return. Then they will possess the inner spiritual perception by which they will be able to recognize Him. These matters are fully elucidated in this book.
Christianity has been expounded from thousands of pulpits during the past 2000 years. Nevertheless, humanity today has but an allegorical conception of Christ and His ministry.
This treatise covers the Cosmic Significance of Christmas and the annual Sacrifice of Christ, traces the astrological interpretation up through the simplicity of nature worship and sketches a glorious outlook for the coming age, which inspires the casual reader to seek more Light.
This booklet contains some of the most beautiful writings of the founder of The Rosicrucian Fellowship. It gives the true esoteric meaning of the resurrection of Christ Jesus, His correlation to the great Sun Spirit and an explanation of His mission on Earth. Here will be found the results of firsthand research into the Memory of Nature.

Delight in the firsthand description of the early days, Max Heindel's first contact with the Elder Brothers, the search for Mount Ecclesia, the first summer school and the construction of the buildings, including the Pro- Ecclesia and Temple (Ecclesia). There are many early-day black and white pictures, eight full color present-day pictures and MUCH more.
The Echoes of Mount Ecclesia 1913 - 1915 were the first historical events of Mount Ecclesia printed and published by Max Heindel. Then, in the second part of 1915, Max Heindel decided to print and publish a magazine, the Rays from the Rose Cross. From 1915 on, the magazine Rays includes the Echoes, which relate the history and events of Mount Ecclesia. The Echoes 1913 - 1915 are out of print as are some of the oldest Rays as well.
Echoes of Mount Ecclesia, 1913 - 1919 enables everyone to know the history of the beginning of The Rosicrucian Fellowship until Max Heindel passed away in January, 1919.
Echoes of Mount Ecclesia, 1913 - 1919 is the "companion" book to Memoirs about Max Heindel and The Rosicrucian Fellowship by Augusta Foss Heindel. Echoes has fifty-one black and white historical pictures, most being different from the ones in Memoirs . . ..
This index has been prepared primarily for the purpose of aiding students to find quotations by Max Heindel dealing with particular subjects. Hence there is a more detailed listing of references to basic topics, in words verbatim from their sources, than would otherwise be the case. It is also hoped that this index may serve as an incentive to topical study and research in the development and correlation of fundamental subjects taught in the Western Wisdom Teachings.
