    Pseudonyms Theron Q Dumont, Yogi Ramacharaka, Swami Bhakta Vishita Swami PanchadasiWilliam Walker Atkinson December 5, 1862 November 22, 1932 was an attorney, merchant, publisher, and author, as well as an occultist and an American pioneer of the New Thought movement He is also known to have been the author of the pseudonymous works attributed to Theron Q Dumont, Swami Panchadasi and Yogi Ramacharaka and others.Due in part to Atkinson s intense personal secrecy and extensive use of pseudonyms, he is now largely forgotten, despite having obtained mention in past editions of Who s Who in America, Religious Leaders of America, and several similar publications and having written than 100 books in the last 30 years of his life His works have remained in print or less continuously since 1900.William Walker Atkinson was born in Balti, Maryland on December 5, 1862, to William and Emma Atkinson He began his working life as a grocer at 15 years old, probably helping his father He married Margret Foster Black of Beverly, New Jersey, in October 1889, and they had two children The first probably died young The second later married and had two daughters.Atkinson pursued a business career from 1882 onwards and in 1894 he was admitted as an attorney to the Bar of Pennsylvania While he gained much material success in his profession as a lawyer, the stress and over strain eventually took its toll, and during this time he experienced a complete physical and mental breakdown, and financial disaster He looked for healing and in the late 1880s he found it with New Thought, later attributing the restoration of his health, mental vigor and material prosperity to the application of the principles of New Thought.Some time after his healing, Atkinson began to write articles on the truths he felt he had discovered, which were then known as Mental Science In 1889, an article by him entitled A Mental Science Catechism, appeared in Charles Fill s new periodical, Modern Thought.By the early 1890s Chicago had become a major centre for New Thought, mainly through the work of Emma Curtis Hopkins, and Atkinson decided to move there Once in the city, he became an active promoter of the movement as an editor and author He was responsible for publishing the magazines Suggestion 1900 1901 , New Thought 1901 1905 and Advanced Thought 1906 1916.In 1900 Atkinson worked as an associate editor of Suggestion, a New Thought Journal, and wrote his probable first book, Thought Force in Business and Everyday Life, being a series of lessons in personal magnetism, psychic influence, thought force, concentration, will power, and practical mental science.He then met Sydney Flower, a well known New Thought publisher and businessman, and teamed up with him In December, 1901 he assumed editorship of Flower s popular New Thought magazine, a post which he held until 1905 During these years he built for himself an enduring place in the hearts of its readers Article after article flowed from his pen Meanwhile he also founded his own Psychic Club and the so called Atkinson School of Mental Science Both were located in the same building as Flower s Psychic Research and New Thought Publishing Company.Atkinson was a past president of the International New Thought Alliance.Throughout his subsequent career, Atkinson wrote and published under his own name and many pseudonyms It is not known whether he ever acknowledged authorship of these pseudonymous works, but all of the supposedly independent authors whose writings are now credited to Atkinson were linked to one another by virtue of the fact that their works were released by a series of publishing houses with shared addresses and they also wrote for a series of magazines with a shared roster of authors Atkinson was the editor of a

  • Interesting rundown on reincarnation and Karma from the Hindu perspective It clarifies the belief very well The author seems to infer however that all beliefs believe in a form of reincarnation and that all religion at one time or another believed in the same way that Hinduism does If my take on it is true, I think is a bit ridiculous but maybe I m reading between the lines too much In the book, he mentions the spirit and how most religions believe in it While it s true that most religions at on [...]


  • William Walker Atkinson explains in easy to understand language the meaning of Reincarnation and the Law of Karma He presents arguments both supporting and against the beliefs He, also, discusses the various ways that religions cultures Eqyptian, Druids, Essene, Greek, Hindu, Roman, and Christianity in it s early and present forms and great thinkers have incorporated or refuted the beliefs Very well organized and written.



  • I really enjoyed this book for the well generalized overview of major religious and theosophical views on reincarnation and karma It is full of interesting quotes and tidbits regarding the interpretation of the substance of life itself For instance A perfected man must have experienced every type of earthy realtion and duty, every phase of desire, affection and passion, every form of temptation and every variety of conflict No one life can possibly furnish the material for than a minute section [...]


  • The first portion of this book is somewaht complex because it decscribes the various Schools of Reincarnation thought all the subtle nuances between them I found it very tedious to get through However as you get past one third of the book, it then gives the reasoning why Reincartion makes the most sense And then in the last third, it gets somewhat tedious again That said, if you are not famailar with the idea of reincarnation or the pros and cons that go with it, then the middle part of the book [...]


  • One of the best books on the subject of reincarnation I have ever read I would have finished this book a long time ago had I realized it ended at 93% Although there is a great deal to learn from this book, it can be summed up in the last couple of pages Wonderful read and I highly recommend it for anyone interested in what is referred to in this book because of the time period it is written in as occult principles of reincarnation.


  • I sincerely enjoyed this book It certainly broadened my horizons and actually cleared up many questions I ve always had about reincarnation It is written with the attempt to be unbiased and show both sides of the reincarnation debate and I think it did a relatively good job of that Simply, this was an interesting and thought provoking read, to say the least I was a little saddened that it had to come to an end.
