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.
ISBN Number: 0911274-16-2
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

color present-day pictures and MUCH more.
Catch the opportunity to read this fascinating book.
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.

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.
