Houston, Texas 77008
MEETING ON JUNE 17, 2017
Group Study: “Discipleship,” Chapter 13 of the book
“The Spiritual Life” by Annie Besant
Facilitator: Dr. John Attia
Time: 10:00 a.m.
Brief Description of the Study Material
The title of Chapter 13 of the book “The Spiritual Life” is the “Discipleship.” The author defines discipleship as a “past tie” between one of the Masters of the Wisdom and an individual. A distinction is made between “discipleship” and “initiation.” In addition, the qualifications for initiation are briefly discussed. The chapter ends by describing H.P. Blavatsky, a disciple and initiate, as one of those great and priceless individuals whose qualities outweigh by thousand-fold their imperfections. As you read Chapter 13 of the book, please do reflect on discipleship and initiation with regard to your spiritual life. Do come to the meeting to share your insights with other members.
