Metaphysical and Spiritual Library

THE WORLD'S BIGGEST ON-LINE METAPHYSICAL LIBRARY?

Hand-Picked Links To Valuable FREE (AND ALMOST-FREE) Metaphysical Books

The links below are all to external sites and we are not responsible for the content of the sites or the books. The sites and books will contain differing views, teachings and opinions. We do not have time to read all of them or to check all of the content of each site!

Please let us know if any of the links below is not working, or if you would like to suggest other links to free/almost-free books on metaphysical, paranormal, spiritual, religious or personal growth topics.  If you find objectionable content* in any of the material linked to, please report it to us.

Be aware of when a book was written when assessing its views: traditional and historical material can contain sexism, intolerance and certain prejudices which were normal for the time and culture, and those aspects need to be put aside when considering the core spiritual teachings of the book. Similar considerations apply, of course, to literature and to many sacred texts. And some historical material promoting prejudice may be provided in order to aid genuine students of the history of religious intolerance which has been a major cause of human suffering, and from which we must escape if we desire a better and saner world.

Happy and enlightening reading!

 

*by objectionable content we do not mean things you disagree with or things contrary to your beliefs!  We mean prejudice, hate, offensive sexual content, etc.  We have no reason to think that any of the sites we link to are unsavoury, but there is always a possibility that wrong material can get into a site through hacking, hijacking, sabotage, or unauthorised domain transfer. 


We keep adding many more great sources!

Scribd.com
Scribd is a general on-line publishing site where anyone can upload and download books and documents on any subject. They have a lot of material covering religions, spirituality, metaphysics, esotericism, holistic health and therapies, and related fields in English and in many other languages. Anyone can upload anything - so beware. Quality varies tremendously and anything goes, from tracts, cult and paranoid conspiracy literature and weird stuff to good books uploaded by authors and a lot of bootlegged stuff, some very badly OCRd and unedited so many words are turned into gibberish. Some commerical material such as catalogues and prospectuses can be found there too. Best for finding copies of old public domain material and new works offered to the public domain, also some scholarly papers and articles. OUR WARNING  This is a file-sharing site so take care! Do not breach copyright!
