(Online Book) An Eastern Exposition of the Gospel of Jesus According to St. John

Allan Bennett (1872-1923) was a member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. He was a friend, mentor and associate of author and occultist Aleister Crowley. This book was written by Allan Bennett's teacher, Sri Parananda, Parananda allied with Theosophist Henry Steel Olcott to advocate Buddhist education in schools. He also authored On Faith or Love of God and An Eastern Exposition of the Gospel of Jesus According to St. Mathew; the following year, he would continue the argument in his An Eastern Exposition of the Gospel of Jesus according to St. John that Christ was simply teaching yoga. His Biblical expositions were well received, with Metaphysical Magazine writing " we know of no more deserving and practical Commentaries on the Holy Scriptures," while the Theosophist called their study "very interesting and very profitable"; interest in his writings wold eventually lead to an American teaching visit. Thus two mystical mentors, Bennett and [Sri Parananda] gave Crowley "my fist groundings in mystical theory and practice."
