Theosophy, Carl Jung and the "Tibetan Book of the Dead"

Dear friends,

There are many students of theosophy who admire the thought of Carl

However, maybe most of them don't see that Jung ideas are contrary
to Ethics, as Eric Fromm and others showed.

There is a most interesting article that brings even more evidences
about the untheosophical ideais of Mr. Jung, and his relation with a
Dugpa sect.

The text is published at our websites
<>  and
<>  with the title:

Or Examining Some Affinities Between
Carl G. Jung And a Certain Tibetan Sect

As it is written in the text:

"If is perhaps a challenging fact for students of theosophy in the 21st
century that a well-known thinker as Carl Jung was connected to the
Ningmapa sect literature, as well as to their methods and occult
inclinations. As we shall see, one of the main Ningma "best-selling"
books - the so-called "Bardo Thodol" or "Tibetan Book of the Dead" - had
a long- standing personal influence on Jung and received an enthusiastic
public support from him."
