This continued Lotusbluthen in the sense that Dr. Franz Hartmann (1838-1912) was its driving force and wrote or translated most of the contents until his death. It was principally composed of translations from Indian sources, articles by Hartmann and others on general occultism, and, notably, Hartmann's "Aus meinem Leben" and "Erinnerungen an H.P. Blavatsky." Like its predecessor it was "Theosophical" in the sense of exploring a variety of occult and religious phenomena (Tibetan ritual, Pythagorean Aphorisms, the Rosicrucians, spiritualism, etc.), but not in the sense of adhering to the Theosophical Society then led by Annie Besant (Hartmann had founded his own German Theosophical Society in 1898 after breaking with the society of Katherine Tingley). On the death of Hartmann in August 1912, Dr. Paul Harald Gravell assumed the editorship, but the journal soon ceased. A table of contents for the volumes through 1913 has been prepared by Robert Hutwohl at http: ZDB: Freiburg UB; Freiburg Inst Grenzgeb Psychol; Munchen BSB; Erlangen-N UB; Berlin SBB Haus Unter d.Linden; Berlin SBB Haus Potsdamer Str; Mönchengladbach StB; Halle/S UuLB; Leipzig DNB; Dresden SLUB, ZB.
