Alice A. Bailey (AAB) was an amanuensis (a scribe) for the Tibetan Master Djwhal Khul (D.K.) for a period of thirty years, between 1919 and 1949. During that time, DK was incarnate as a high Tibetan Lama in Tibet, and sent AAB written material by post; but their main communication was through mental telepathy. Their collaboration yielded some twenty-four books covering many aspects of the Science of the Seven Rays, Esoteric Astrology, Healing and the Ageless Wisdom cosmology. The series of 24 books were written mainly for the many souls who would be incarnate in the West around the turn of the century. The teachings therein are profound, multi-levelled, and timeless, synthesising Eastern and Western traditions.
Alice Bailey: Wikipedia Article
Alice Ann Bailey (June 16, 1880 – December 15, 1949), known as Alice A. Bailey or AAB, was born as Alice LaTrobe Bateman, in Manchester, England. She moved to the United States in 1907, where she spent most of her life as a writer and teacher. She wrote on spiritual, occult, astrological, Theosophical, Christian and other religious themes.
Her works, written between 1919 and 1949, describe a wide-ranging system of esoteric thought covering such topics as the spiritual development of solar systems, meditation, healing, spiritual psychology, the destiny of nations, and prescriptions for society in general. She described the majority of her work as having been telepathically dictated to her by a “Master of the Wisdom”, initially referred to only as “the Tibetan”, or by the initials “D.K.”, later identified as “Djwhal Khul”.
Her writings were influenced by the works of Madame Blavatsky. Though Bailey’s writings differ from Theosophy, they also have much in common with it. She wrote about religious themes, including Christianity, though her writings are fundamentally different from many aspects of Christianity and of other orthodox religions. Her vision of a unified society includes a global “spirit of religion” different from traditional religious forms and including the concept of the Age of Aquarius.
Her philosophy and her writings are still applied by the groups and organizations she founded, such as the Arcane School, the New Group of World Servers, and the Full Moon Meditation Groups that follow her teachings.
