Here, the author Dr. Laurence J. Bendit has dealt with the subject of beauty from the theosophical point of view, principally to say that beauty transforms consciousness. It links the spiritual with the physical. In his words, 'takes down shutters in the mind', and the real artist must be open to the inner workds of Nature, who is the greatest creative artist, being unconditioned by past experiences. The search for beauty is a form of yoga.
