Annie Besant

(1847 -1933)




The Seven Principles of Man


Annie Besant



Theosophy Wales 3000 is pleased to present Annie Besant’s “The Seven Principles of Man”, written in 1909 and long recognized as an authoritative introduction to the Theosophical model of the visible and invisible aspects of ourselves.


Yes, we all operate at 7 levels


We’re all familiar with the physical body and to some people the physical body is the whole self.


It is, however, a bit more complicated than that and can be a bit of a shock for those who identify too closely with the physical self.


Our physical body represents only the visible manifestation of ourselves on the physical plane of nature. There are six other planes of nature and we are all represented on each one. To put in an appearance we have a body or principle corresponding to each plane. Anne Besant now takes you through the seven aspects that we all have.








Principle I.

The Dense Physical Body


Principle II

The Etheric Double


Principle III

Prana, The Life


Principle IV

The Desire Body


The Quaternary,

Or Four Lower Principles


Principle V

Manas, The Thinker, or Mind


Manas in Activity


Subtle Forms of The

Fourth and Fifth Principle


The Higher Manas


Principles VI & VII

Âtma – Buddhi, The Spirit


The Monad in Evolution

The Old Severn Bridge at night

If you are travelling to Wales along the M4, you can cross on the

Old Severn Bridge (opened 1966) by taking the M48, which will take

you over the bridge and back on to the M4. You can also cross this

bridge on foot, horse or bike by using the service roads on

either side. Don’t try this on the new Severn Bridge

Concerns about the fate of the wildlife as

Tekels Park is to be Sold to a Developer


Concerns are raised about the fate of the 

wildlife as The Spiritual Retreat, 

Tekels Park in Camberley, Surrey, 

England is to be sold to a developer.


Tekels Park is a 50 acre woodland park, 

purchased for the Adyar Theosophical 

Society in England in 1929.


It doesn’t require a Diploma in Finance and

even someone with a Diploma in Astral Travel

will know that this is a bad time economically

to sell Tekels Park


In addition to concern about the park, 

many are worried about the future 

of the Tekels Park Deer as they 

are not a protected species.


Theosophy talks of compassion for animals

and the apparent indifference to the fate of

the Tekels Park wildlife has dismayed many.


Confusion as the Theoversity moves out of 

Tekels Park to Southampton, Glastonbury & 

Chorley in Lancashire while the leadership claim

that the Theosophical Society will carry on using 

Tekels Park despite its sale to a developer


Anyone planning a “Spiritual” stay at the

Tekels Park Guest House should be aware of the sale.
