Here I present to you the top 7 books to read for your spiritual and practical life.

Study them and put them into practical application.

It will benefit you as much as it has benefited me.

1. The Kybalion


This is one of the most important book for the basic of Hermetic Philosophy.

With concise and clear precision, The Kybalion is a must for anyone who wishes to know the universal laws that governs all physical and spiritual reality.

The 7 Hermetic Principles are:

  1. Mentalism
  2. Correspondence
  3. Vibration
  4. Polarity
  5. Rhythm
  6. Cause and Effect
  7. Gender

I recommend you receive the version from Yogi Public Society, which is freely accessible in PDF online.

2. In Tune with the Infinite


Ralph Waldo Trine’s greatest book re-states the physical and spiritual truths long known by teachers like Jesus, Krishna, and Gautama Buddha.

This book is simple and clear for anyone who is starting to read spirituality.

The keys to health, happiness and success is found within, not without.

Once you read it, you can have the power to change your life for the better.

3. The Secret Teachings of All Ages


Your spiritual understanding cannot be complete without having read this important book.

If you study the contents of Manly P. Hall, you will understand Alchemy, Magic, Qabbalah, Astrology, and the synthesis of various religions.

This great work will give you a thousand year of knowledge in one book.

Though it is essential to understand the bigger picture of spirituality, some of the contents have errors.

But these shortcomings do not make the The Secret Teachings of All Ages any less profound.

4. The Secret Doctrine, 1888


This is one of the essential reading every serious spiritual seeker must be acquainted with.

The Secret Doctrine remains to be one of the most complete source for timeless wisdom.

But I found this to also be the hardest book to read due to Blavatsky’s style of language.

Certainly this is something to read casually. It requires careful study over years.

But the result is worth it and you will find yourself enlightened in leaps and bounds.

I recommend you get the original 1888 edition because nothing is omitted.

5. The Upanishads, Juan Mascaro


Juan Mascaro is one the most finest translators of ancient knowledge.

It is said that the Upanishads come from the Himalayas where the spiritual teachers taught his students at the feet of the mountain.

This book reveals some elevated spiritual truths as if you are sitting near the teacher himself.

It introduces the 4th state of consciousness, the Higher Self, the Real Karma, Evolution and journey to Liberation.

The penguin version 1965 and the re-printed 2005 are both good edition.

6. The Complete Works of William Atkinson

William Walker Atkinson brought telepathy, mental influence, law of attraction, vibration, and yogi science into the Western world.

Written under many pseudonyms, you will find one of the most popular and influential occult philosophy.

The complete works shares the best books in one collection, which you will find practical knowledge to help your life.

7. Riches Man of Babylonian


If you are looking for abundance or financial freedom, this is a must book to read.

The simple lessons in financial wisdom will allow you to make choices to further your life.

George S. Clason gives you the secret to achieving wealth, and it is not so much a secret at all, it is practical.
