If some people doubted Agarttha’s reality, that happened only because they didn’t know how to surpass the limits of their individuality and of the profane world. Agarttha doesn’t belong to the profane geography and cannot be found by a tourist or paparazzi. Like the Heavenly Kingdom, Agarttha has to be found first within our heart, and only then it will appear as an award of our spiritual realization. Only by completing an initiatory journey and a spiritual realization, the deepest center of the heart will unveil itself as identical with the subterranean center, and only then we can enter the invisible palace of the Lord of the World. Indeed, that is what René Guénon transmitted to us. The same as a human being (considered as an individual) can symbolize the Universal Man, so the various centers can symbolize the supreme Center. Yet the supreme Center, the veritable Agarttha, cannot be reached but at the very moment when the individual passes beyond its limited condition and realizes the state of Universal Man.
It is neither the place nor our task to emit judgments regarding the individuality order, but we have to mention that, after Guénon’s death, some of his “collaborators” were very active to reduce Guénon’s work at the profane level. Marco Pallis, for example, who was encouraged and helped by Guénon in his traditional studies, wrote a curious article against Guénon’s Le Roi du Monde; Pallis tried to prove that Agarttha and the Lord of the World were just results of Guénon’s imagination, that nobody heard in India or Tibet about Agarttha and the Lord of the World. Our present study, Agarttha, the Invisible Center, regards this topic. There is an extraordinary incomprehension about the symbolism of the Lord of the World, about what really Guénon transmitted in his fundamental book Le Roi du Monde. Marco Pallis is one of the examples of this incomprehension, and our work tries to decipher the profound symbolism of Agarttha and of his Lord, based on the traditional lore René Guénon transmitted through his writings.

The Holy Trinity and the Law of Three: Discovering the Radical Truth at the Heart of Christianity
Just as she's done in her previous books, Cynthia Bourgeault asks us to take a look at an idea from traditional Christianity--this time the formula of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit--as though we're looking at it for the first time. And as usual, she reveals it to be something we hadn't expected at all.
She finds in the idea of the Holy Trinity a striking vision of the nature of reality. What she claims, in a nutshell, is that embedded within this theological formula that Christians recite mo...
The Afflicted Mirror: A Study of Ordeals and the Making of Compacts
Three Hands Press
Measuring the connectivity between the visible and invisible, by using physicality as a signifier, brings another aspect to the fore. There appears to be good reason to believe there is a ratio in physical difference when it comes to observing how the metaphysical manifests partial presences. Exponential distortions correspond to how we retain a level of contact with the Other. When these abnormalities become exaggerated they prompt greater emotive responses, such as fear. By expressing an Ot...
