Founder of the college of Universal Science and author of the well-known book,
"Divine Healing of Mind and Body" Dr. MacDonald-Bayne was born in Scotland in 1887.
During his lifetime he travelled throughout the world healing thousands of people of
all kinds of diseases and taught the Truth of the Law of Being to many thousands more.
He was fondly referred to as "Dr. Mac" by his students who often spoke of seeing him
overshadowed by a higher being during his lectures.
It is said that he journeyed several times into India and Tibet where he spent long
periods (recounted in "Beyond the Himalayas" and it's sequel "The Yoga of the Christ") in the company of true Masters
of the Tibetan Himalayas. There his powers to heal were strengthened and he received
greater enlightenment for his mission to reveal those profound teachings to the outside
world. The developed spiritual power and wisdom he acquired is reflected in the writings
of his first books, "The Higher Power You Can Use" and "I Am the Life".
After establishing spiritual centres in several countries, Dr. Mac lived in New Zealand and Australia during
the early 1940s and by 1944 he settled in South Africa where he continued to heal and give
lectures twice a week, some of which were recorded. He also produced during this period
(The Higher Power You Can Use, I Am the Life, Heal Yourself, Spiritual & Mental Healing, What is Mine is Thine I & II,
Divine Healing of Mind & Body, How to Relax
and Revitalise Yourself, Your Life Renewed Every Day,
Beyond the Himalayas, The Yoga of the Christ). During a visit to England he
passed over suddenly in London, February 1955.
When Murdo passed away he left behind a lot of
unpublished material in the form of Lecture
Notes (1947-54). These were given out to his
students prior to his Lectures. On the actual
night he would expand upon these notes in his
Lecture, some of which were sound recorded.
Mystica is committed to transcribing the sound
recordings of those Lectures, combining them
with the Lecture Notes, and bringing them out in
book & CD form. So far we have posthumously
published (Cosmic Consciousness:
Your Silent Partner - Lecture Notes 1947-8, Life
