"The Wisdom Religion is the inheritance of all the nations, the world over..." - Secret Doctrine Vol I. Introductory page xviii.
What is wrong with Darwinism, right with Intelligent Design, and who was the
Theosophy is a fragment of the ancient, once universal,
The masters of Theosophy, located in Tibet and around the
world, preserve and extend this ancient wisdom. Periodically
they send forth one of their own - or a messenger - to help
spread this teaching to all of humanity.
In the 1800's they had been searching for a century for the
next messenger and finally settled upon Helena Blavatsky,
born to a noble Russian family. She saw the master who would
be her teacher in her dreams as a child. She met him in Hyde
Park in London when she was 20. She managed to enter Tibet and
was trained by those masters in Tibet from 1868 to 1870. From
1875 through her death in 1891 she spread that message around
Theosophy is the name Blavatsky gave to that portion of
knowledge that she brought from the masters to the world. It
comes from the term "Theosophia" used by the Neoplatonists to
mean literally "knowledge of the divine".
"An Invitation to the Secret Doctrine."
background and introduction to Blavatsky's magnum opus - the monumental source book
for esotericism in our age.
Perhaps all of her work can be summed up in one of her
maxims: Compassion is the law of laws. She explained that
brotherhood is not a mere ideal - it is a fact in nature on
the spiritual plane. From that we derive a logical basis
and a binding source for morality that can guide and inspire us,
even while more traditional religious sources are losing their
compelling force. She gives us the metaphysics from which we
can deduce the most important priciples of how to live.
The master collection of her work extends 3 feet on a
bookshelf. (In today's age it is also available on a CD-rom.)
Her master work is the Secret Doctrine, written in 1888 -
a book that will remain seminal for centuries. Her first
book-length work, Isis Unveiled, shook the rafters of science
and religion, and the world hasn't been the same since. Many
people reading this will hold views that were first planted
in the West by Blavatsky. Some of the views you hold were
brought by her. She also has an introductory book, Key to
Theosophy, and an inspiration book, Voice of the Silence,
for those few who are ready to tread in the footsteps of
advanced disciples - or at least for those who want their
soul to hear the same call. We also have introductory books
recommended in the bookstore since her master work would
be quite challenging for a newcommer to this philosophy.
"Fundamentals of the Esoteric
Philosophy" by Gottfried de Purucker.
A series of lectures that provides an excellent introduction to Theosophy.
We also have many letters from the two teachers of
Blavatsky that offer a very rare glimpse into what is
effectively another world. In that world a concern for
humanity as a whole is the number one guiding principle in
the foreground. In the background is an understanding and
command of the hidden laws of nature that is far beyond what
is known to humanity in general today.
On this site we have her articles and we point to other
sources online for all her major works. We also supply a
search engine for those articles. (Her entire works can be
searched with a search engine on the CD.) Ages ago
(in internet time) when this site first started, it aimed to
show evidence confirming the teaching she brought. There is a
start made in that direction but there is far more confirmatory
evidence than has yet been assembled conveniently online.
Best wishes in exploring this site and pursuing the
teachings of Theosophy.
We would like to bring to the attention of all seekers that this summer the International Theosophical Centre in the Netherlands is hosting a 3 day meeting. We encourage all who can to attend and get to know other Theosophists. One of our Board Members will be attending this meeting.
At the moment we are in the process of revamping the entire site, and hopefully we should be completed by early Spring 2014. In the meantime, please excuse us for some of the non-working sections in the site. They will be working when we have migrated to a better platform. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you - Estela Carson-Priede
