"A virtue is only a good emotion made general and permanent."

Bhagavan Das, M.A., D.Litt., was an assistant to Dr. Annie Besant in her capacity as President of the Theosophical Society. "Conversation turned one evening on Emotions. I placed before her, such ideas as I had gathered about them from ancient Sanskrit books. She was greatly interested, and desired me to write them out in full. Hence this book..." (p.xxi-xxii)

Recommended by the Master DK in Alice A. Bailey (1934), A Treatise on White Magic, p.296: "I would like to suggest to students that they procure if possible The Science of Emotions by Bhagavan Das. It is an able treatise on the astral and sentient body, and deals with the factors that most nearly concern the aspirant as he faces the problems of understanding and of controlling his emotional nature..."

This is the final edition, greatly expanded from the original 1900, and the later 1910 and 1924 editions. Republished by The Theosophical Publishing House in Adyar (ISBN 81-7059-376-X) in 2005.
