Houston, Texas 77008
MEETING ON AUGUST 17, 2019
Group Study: “Kāma – The Animal Soul,”
Chapter 5 of the book “Evolution of the Higher Consciousness” by Pablo Sender
Facilitator: Ms. Shanthi Nadesalingam
Time: 10:00 a.m.
Brief Description of the Study Material
HPB referred to Kāma – The Animal Soul as “The Principle of animal desire, which burns fiercely during life in matter, resulting in satiety; it is inseparable from animal existence.” This chapter explains that kāma, the fourth Principle, is the source of desire as well as the source of will or volition in humans. As Blavasky stated, “Most of men live in and by desire, mistaking it for will. But he who would achieve [the spiritual goal] must separate will from desire, and make his will the ruler; for desire is unstable and ever changing, while will is steady and constant….” Come and share your insights of your study of Chapter 5 with your fellow brothers and sisters.
