The Akashic Records: Origins and Relation to Western Concepts
Alex Nash, "The Akashic Records: Origins and Relation to Western Concepts", Central European Journal of Contemporary Religion 3 (2, 2019): p. 109-124.
term Akashic Records originates from the Indian word Akasha, which gained a new
meaning after its adoption by the Theosophical Society. The first part of the
text explains the origin of the concept of both Akasha and the Akashic
Records. The article argues that the
transformation was influenced by elements from philosophy and physics, as well
as by the Christian doctrine of predestination. The final part of the article
then describes an example of how concepts similar to the Akashic Records still
appeared in the 20th century.
