NEW TEMPLE TO BUDDHA.
Headquarters Established at Last by
the Tbeosophical Eoclety in New
New York, Dec. I.- From timo to time,
since the founders of tbo Tbeosophi
cal Society sailed to India to heathen
ize the natives there, news of
their doings have interested (more or le s)
the curious in such mattors, and has been
published widely in the newspapers of Eu
rope and America.
It is not so well known, however, that
there is an active band of their followers iri
New York, who continue to hold meetings
and issue different papers and tracts de
signed to convince tbo skeptical of the
great truths of theosophy. 1 hev are not
rich, and the notorious project of building
a Buddhist temple in the ciyr has never
gone further than to form a dream in the
minds of the promoters. They have, how
ever, obtained means enough to fit up a
place, which serves for a temple, and the
place, singularly enough, is in an office
building in one of the very busiest streets
in Now York. They have hired a ball for
their regular meetings, Mott Memorial hall,
it is, and there, on certain specified Tues
day nights, strange people, suen as wander
ing Hindoos, Oriontal Hebrews, and unre
constructed Greeks bold forth on tbe rnan
nerK and queer religions of their races and
birth places. They (tbe Tbeosophists of
Now York) also publish a monthly ’maga
zine called the Path. Nobody understands
THE MORNING NEWS: SUNDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1888.
it excepting themselves, but enough of them
have subscribed, I am told, to pay the
printer, and tbe editors and contributors
work for the good of the cause.
The most remarkable development, how
ever, is unquestionably tbe little toy tem
ple at 117 Nassau street. Here, if the stor
ies of the initiates are to be believed, cer
tain marvels are to be witnessed. Unhap
pily for the interests of the newspaper
readers these marvels are not performed to
order, and I was unable to persuade the
mild-eyed heathen priest who was in
charge, to do any miracles for me, though
he was willing enough to let me inspect tho
place and its fittings.
It is a little room. Fortunately, tbe
Theosophists, like Mr. Dick, care nothing
for the swinging of cats, and are not ob
liged to rent superfluous space. You get
into the rooms by the prosaic means of
going up the slowest elevator in town, enter
ing a business office, r,nd getting permis
sior there (if you can), to go through a side
door into the sanctuary. It is tergiversa
tion. but it pays.
After opening the door, the priest pulls a
curtain aside, and if you look closely you
will find tho curtains is a Persian fabric of
great beauty. Being lifted, it discloses a
curious scene. Opposite tbo doorway sits
Buddna. The god is small, and as ugly as
conventionality demands, and he hits cross
legged in a little niche, pondering tbe inex
plicable secrets of nature, as imperturbably
as be would if stationed in a Mahatma’s
cave. In front of him a pot of incense is
kept continually burning, and the smoke
arises in wavy w reaths that load the air
with a stifling perfume. On tho floor in
front of tho image lies a Ceylonese grass
mat, brought to New York by William Q
Buddha, although apparently the presid
ing deity of the place, does not seem to have
full sway, fer on the wall at one end of
tbe room, the blazing seal of the society oc
cupies the place of honor. Over it is pic
tured in illuminated letters, the motto: “No
religion higher than truth.” Around the
other walls are displayed some twenty-five
shields, one for each of tho branches >f the
society that have been established all over
the United States. “All over” is not quite ac
curate, but there are branchsocieties in New
York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, lowa, Missouri
aud California. These brauchos have each
a distinctive name borrowed from the eas
tern religions, among them, Ishwara, Ved
anta, Isis, Dharrua and Nirwana. This last
is located in Nebraska, and may be sup
posed by the irreverent, to stand for tfie
principal desire or longing of the citizens
of that state.
A heavy Turkish rug covers the flor.r,
and plain, ordinary, everyday furniture
store chairs and a table stand around for
furniture, but on the table well as on the
walls are various objects of interest.
Anioug them are representations of the
1 heosopluc&l convent ion in India, and of
the s ciety buildings in Bombay. Another
s ene is the picture of an Egyptian initia
tion painted in magic colors, the pigm-nts
for which wero dug by Mme. Blavatskv’s
fair fingers out of an ancient stone wall in
Teheran. Those who doubt this statement,
are at liberty to go to Teheran and see the
wall, which is still there. Mr. Judge has
carried this picture nearly all over the
world, and it is accordingly prized highly
by tbe faithful. Underneath the picture is
a bracket on wbich are certain occult
things whose use the priest would not ex
plain. They are a square and a pyramid of
crystal, and a sphere of polished steel. If
they aro of any service beyond being orna
mental, the initiates only are allowed to
Half a dozen emblems of religions other
than Buddhaismi are displayed on the walls.
Among them is a drawing, said to be a re
presentation of an ancient Indian statue
of a virgin and a child guarded by Celes
tial shadowy beings. Tne priest also des
cribed a bronze, which is shortly to be
added to the queer collection, and which
is a copy of an obelisk standing in the rock
cut cities of India, deserted some 3,000 or
4,000 y ears ago. This obelisk, he says, also
bears tbe sculptured images of a virgin and
child. How tbe virginal charac.er of the.-e
undoubtedlv ancient representations is es
tablished, I could not learn. The priest
said it would be necessary forme to study
many volumes of unimpeachable history
before being convinced.
011 the table lies a huge album contain
ing photographs of famous theosophists, and
some not famous, from all over the world.
It also contains a pictuie of some Ma
hatma, which (tho picture) is said to wink
its eyes at long intervals. It did not wink
while I was looking, but I saw tho picture.
Copies in English and .‘Sanscrit of the
Bhagavad-Gita lie also on tbe table; the
latter eight times as large as tho former, to
say nothing of its being really harder to
understand. There is, moreover, a visitors’
book, in which I found alleged names in
what is said to be Hebrew aud Sanscrit,
They wero certainly not written in Italian
script or Roman letters, but looked very
much like a lot of parentheses aud excla
mation (joints. Other names were J. Rals
ton Skinner, of Cincinnati, O.; Prof. Piazzi
Smytbe, ?>arah Fisher Ames, H. B. Foulke,
of Philadelphia, and many equally known
The most remarkable thing in the room
is a huge misshapen mass of rock crystal,
with what looks like a largo natural fau<-et.
This side is blazingly brilliant, or was when
I saw it. It is said to vary in brilliancy at,
times, and to be a veritable magic crystal
in wbich the spiritual sighted can see vis
ions. mostly relating to theosophical mat
ters. Tho officers consult it at cer
tain times of the mouth to learn the
condition of the branches of the
society, and they claim that when
the members of the inner circle only are
present, queer sights are seen, and invisible
hells are heard to ring.
The rooms are open to visitors daily,
though the Hindoo priest is not alv ass
there. He was very reserved when I quei
tioned him about himself, though he was
willing enough to talk fluently about tbe
temple and the aims of the society. His ap
pearance was sufficiently striking to attract
attention even in this cosmopolitan city if
he had been met anywhere else except in
this toy temple. He was rather taller than
the average Hindoo, and immeasurably
more emaciated than anyother human
being outside of a dime museum has a right
to be. Ho had the strongly marked feat
ures and full black beard that belong by
rigut to the religious recluse of the eas ,
nnd was garbed in a compromise between
his native costume and the clothing best
adapted to tho American climate. Over
what looked like a ready made suit from a
Broadway clothier’s establishment he wore
a long blue coat of no particular pattern—
just a coat, nnd on his head was perched
one of those mnrvelous triumnhs of human
ingenuity known as a Poona turban. This
is alleged to be wonderfully twisted up out
thirty-four or thirty-five yards of Lowy
cotton cloth, and the most expert native*
are said to take two hours to do tho twist
ing. When it is done it is a wrapper for
the head that defie* boat and cold alike,
and looks as if it would keep off a stroke of
His name, however, is more remarkable
than his turban, being no lees tha t Ba la
ma Naarayana Pelt. It is noticeable that
a strange odor, like, and very unlike san
dalwood. floats in the air around him. Ho
speaks English perfectly, and uses it skill
fully to conceal his thoughts. It is said by
some of the theosophists that he is here on
some mission from the Mahatmas, and will
disappear when that is accomplished.
Meantime ho is frequently at the temple,
and when there he assumes charge of things.
Tbe number of bona fide Buddhists in
tho United States who are interested in the
now movi ment is considerable, though so
far as known William Q. Judge, tho Presi
of the New York Theosophists, is the only
American who has been admitted to tbe
Buddhist church by tho Rt. Rev H. Bum- !
angala, the high cockoioruin who rules that
institution, and who dwells on Adams Peak,
