Theosophy; The New Rock ‘n Roll
Helena Petrovna Blavatsky
What is the Secret Doctrine?
Although H P Blavatsky wrote loads
of other stuff, this is the big one
First Published in 1888, the Secret Doctrine is the big one as far as Theosophy is concerned. That doesn’t mean we can’t question it, everything in Theosophy is negotiable.
It is based on Eastern Esoteric Knowledge that was previously the preserve of an inner circle of highly developed Spiritual Masters or Adepts. These guys didn’t exactly give it away and H P Blavatsky was specially chosen to receive the knowledge.
The book is in two parts the first is Cosmogenesis
or the origin of the Universe and the second is Anthropogenesis or the origin of Mankind.
You can spend your whole life or longer studying the Secret Doctrine but there are many books at an intermediate and introductory level that explore the ideas. This website and its links are a start.
