A THEOSOPHIST : APOLLONIUS OF TYANA

a rebuke on tablets, which he handed to the Governor to read. The rebuke was in these terms: ` Apollonius to the grainmongers of Aspendus. Earth is the mother of all, for she is just. You by your injustice have treated her as your mother only ; and if you refuse to desist, I shall not suffer you to stand upon the earth.' They were so alarmed by this that they filled the market with grain, and the city came to life again.
After he had resolved to preach, his habit was to avoid any crowded and disorderly places. ` I want man,' he would say, ` not the human animal.' He frequented the more respectable places of resort, and lodged in temples where he found them kept open. He used to perform certain private rites at sunrise, which were only communicated to such as had gone through a four years' discipline of silence. But the rest of the day, if it were a Greek city and the religious usages normal, he would call the priests together and talk divinity with them, correcting any irregularities that he found. If the religion of the place were un-Greek and sectarian, he would carefully inquire about the founders, what was the spirit and purpose of the foundation ; and when he had informed himself about their ministry, and made such suggestions as occurred to his mind for the improvement of their existing practice, he would address himself to his disciples and invite them to ask questions. He made it a principle of his philosophy to begin the morning by communing with the gods ; next to commune with others about the gods ; and only after that, about human affairs. After he had answered his companions and all their questions, and had enough of such conversation, he would rise up and preach in public : not before midday this, but chiefly in the early afternoon. Then, when he had spoken as long as appeared convenient, he would anoint himself and be rubbed and take a plunge into cold water.
