  1. Hola Pablo, It was lovely for me to finally be able to meet you in person at the ITC in Naarden. Thank you so much for all your work. When you put the black screen up and then made the white disc appear and mentioned it could be seen as a sort of window through which the black dot in the middle went through, something really resonated inside me for the first time. I can’t begin to explain it but I understand more now about the Logoi than I did before, so thank you so much. Your brilliant last minute introductory slide about the Bim Bam Theory made me laugh so much. I really hope to see you again sometime. Muchas abrazos, Julie (from England).

    • Hola Julie, Yes, it was a pleasure to meet you too. I am happy to know that you found the talks helpful and not too boring ;-).
      Hopefully we’ll see each other next year!
      Abrazos para ti tambien,

  2. Dear Pablo,

    Hope to see you also in Israel! I wish you success in your new website.

    Clarity,depth and light in your lectures and wonderful PowerPoints.
    With an open heart Etc.
    All the best

  3. Hi Pablo, Linda and Daphna,

  5. Here’s the email I just sent to Richard. Thanks for your comments this morning.
    Dear Richard,

    I’m here at Krotona for the Partners in Theosophy Program. As you probably know the theme is studying the 3 objects of the TS.

    Today, Pablo Sender was discussing the 2nd object. In the discussion, the Hindu, Buddhism and Christian religion was discussed but Islam was notable by it’s absents.

    I in fact want/need to explore this religion. At this point I find it almost impossible to feel anything but negativism towards Islam, even though I don’t agree with myself on that.

    I talked to Pablo afterwards and he agreed there was an absents of discussion about Islam in the TS (and to a Judaism too.)

    He suggested I write to you and suggest that maybe Quest could devote an issue to Islam. I know I “need” that issue. Perhaps some of the Islam vs. Judaism could be discussed as well.

    • Hi Dave,
      There is a very interesting article in The MAY-JUNE 2008 issue of Quest Magazine, entitled “A Pilgrimage into Light: Discovering Islamic Theosophy” By Edward Mathew Taylor It may be of use to you at this time and suggests some other materials to read.
      I hope that helps.

I propose visiting Adyar in June and shall miss you at the School of Wisdom ,come Novemeber.

  14. I have experienced some unique things first hand out in nature , that most people can not see, and I have recorded my findings in pictures as evidence. I would love to speak to you about my findings. Thank You Kindly, Sandy

  15. Maybe I have tapped into the akashic records, all I know it has came to me from a higher being. I know I may sound crazy to most , but I assure you I am of sane and sound mind and a honest person. I have been able to do this for the past 3 years , and have kept all this to myself for a long time , being I knew it would be hard for people to believe what I have experienced first hand . I have been researching on my own for the past couple of years trying to find answers to the how and why I can do all this . Many topics I have researched or things like , String Theory, quantum physics, Akashic Records. Worm Holes and etc. This has taken over my life for the past 3 years , I have now started trying to reach out to people who may study in these fields in order to help answer questions for me. Some of the things I have been able to see first hand or future looking crafts, ancient looking buildings, strange beings, lots of symbols , numbers, and letters, giant looking stone heads and faces , religious things and religious looking people and etc. , with that said , I have been able to capture these things in pictures I have taken of it all as evidence. Note I believe in God and I just think I have recently been blessed with some kind of unique eyesight to witness and see all of this. If after reading my post here , I do hope you will give me the benefit of doubt and contact me at. Santx551@gmail.com so that we can speak. Thank You Kindly

  16. Just watched the wonderful video “The Problem of Evil” with the Surya Theosophical Study Group. I was wondering if you had or could get me a transcript of it. I would like to go into it more slowly than the video, it’s much easier to read and discuss than constantly stoping a video. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Judith

  17. Hi Pablo, While attending your class last night I was curious as to the difference between the term Kosmos and Cosmos, since the title of the class used Cosmos. My understanding is Kosmos is beyond the realm of materialism and the senses and Cosmos is materialism. So last night’s lesson was an explanation of the Cosmos only ? Is there a difference? Could you clarify this for me. I attend all your classes and love your explanations for this deep study of Theosophy.

  18. Hi Pablo- the question of whether or not there are female Masters came up in a recent study group. I would greatly appreciate your thoughts or any information regarding this.
    Thank You!

  19. Pablo Sender, When I attended the Thiingy U and Michell Did in Arkansas theosophy Location ! And my spiritual integration Process … The only thing I know to say is the story U express of ur journey seems Similar to what I feel going on in my world …. But also not too far off of What Is Lightbody Book by Tashira Tachi-ren AND the Part of Most people get upset with u because emotional hooks do not work on them anymore … Which means LOL Finding Friends Is like Not Happening easily ,,, Because most people do the tit for tat relationship deal …. AND need to live vicariously through others and perhaps have not become self secure where they are with unseen energy around them Not selling Anything here Just explaining my reality I reside in LOLFS

  24. HI Pablo – what happened to the Living Theosophy Series The Secret Doctrine: Esoteric Insights and Spiritual Practice ? I had started to watch/listen – had to take a break, and now it looks like the lectures have been deleted, but it says a DVD is available, but….that DVD link does not work.



  25. Just started your new webinar on first SD stanzas yesterday. Super initiative.

    Could you please explain once again the ‘build up’ of the globes in relation to the fact that animals on globe E are further developped than we as human beings on Globe D till this moment…

    It is a great pleasure to be able to participate in your goog work via all your videos and articles on the other side of the Atlantic!

    Thank you so much.

  26. Hi Pablo,

    I’ve been watching your webinars and have enjoyed them a great deal and learned quite few new things I was previously unaware of.

    I was watching your new series, and in particular the video entitled Elements and Elementals – Important Principles of the Esoteric Philosophy – Class 3

    I took note of your discussion mentioning the 7 rounds and the 7 senses. You state that the sense from which all the senses emerge is counted as a sense so that their are only really 6 senses, or something like that. And we only sense the 5 senses in this round.

    I was just wondering, how does the dream state fit into this model? It has occurred to me that the dream state could be conceived as something very much like an ethereal state of consciousness, in which case, we are already very much conscious of the 6th ethereal state while the physical body sleeps.

    I don’t remember you mentioning the dream state during your lectures.
