    By C. Jinarajadasa

    “So, when we live in the Heaven World, we look at Reality minus two veils.”

    “If I have in my Heaven World a friend whom I love, I see him minus two veils, As I know my friend here below, he and I are both veiled. I loved him when on earth; but when later after death I enter the Heaven World, then I shall see him minus two veils, and he will reveal to me certain attributes of himself, which by the very nature of the physical plane it was impossible for him to reveal in their fullness.”

    “Don’t you realize, monsieur, that many of the workers on the sugar fiends are mere soulless carcasses, brought back to life by magic and now slaving for their master?

    “In Port-au-Prince, in Jeremie, in the depths of the jungle, everywhere stood the dread symbol of Voodoo. The first time I saw it was by the Massacre River. A solitary hut stood in a little clearing on the bank and in from the the hut was a pole stuck in the ground with a bleached horse skull on the top. This grisly ornament serves, according to Haitian belief, to ward of the Duppies, evil spirits of the dead.”
