>L> I looked at my copuy of CWL's "Astral Plane", & didn't find what you

>ded by "canonic" theosophical teaching - egregores, naguals and so on.
>I made a reference to this edition of "Astral plane" only to show that

>L> I would answer that I think you're scaring yourself into staying with

>streets built in 30's-50's help to avoid traffic jams even now!
>There was free education in universities, and so, so on...
>L> I don't know the word "shudra". Can you explain what it means?
> It's a lowest indian caste.
>Threr are four:

> Kshatria - soldiers, generals and kings
> Vaishia - capitallists
> Shudra - working class.
>Latter sometimes means rough, non-educated man, too - I think, my scanner
>meaned this ;)
>L> Yes, I'd love to have a copy of their catalog.
> Can you decode UUEncoded messages? If you can't, then I'll split it.
>Do you have a Wheaton catalogue? If yes, look, is there "Occult Che-
>mistry" by CWL & AB?
>L> I think nothing will help me anymore, until I can return in a new
>L> body. This one is worn out.
> Are you old enough? If no, i think, it can't be "worn out" because
>it is completely renewed each 7 years, leaving only "constant atoms".
