Bust of Plato

Plato (428/427 or 424/423 – 348/347 BC) was an Athenian philosopher during the Classical period in Ancient Greece, founder of the Academy, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world. According to H. P. Blavatsky he was an Initiate into the Mysteries and the greatest Greek philosopher.

C. Jinarājadāsa comments

C. Jinarājadāsa spoke of Plato as having been a great influence on his life:

As far as the West is concerned, ever since Plato wrote, wherever there is any kind of philosophical thought which deals with civilization or tries to understand the principles of art, every political writer and every exponent of art has more or less to follow Plato's trail. While you may differ from Plato in various ways, fundamentally you have to ally yourself with him on those thoughts.[1]
