ON THE MYSTERIES

"I think, therefore, that all who are lovers of the contemplation of theurgic truth will acknowledge this, that the piety which pertains to divine natures ought not be exercised towards them partially or imperfectly" (pg 260).

THE BOOK OF ENOCH

Esoteric Tradition 3rd Revised
                  Ed.

THE ESOTERIC TRADITION

G. de Purucker
3rd REVISED EDITION
708 Pages
(Paperback - $27.00 - Add to Cart) or order from Amazon

H. P. Blavatsky pointed to the fundamental concepts of The Secret Doctrine as comprising the principles of an ancient wisdom existing long before the dawn of history. Underlying and seeding the world’s spiritual traditions, it is this doctrine and wisdom-teaching which G. de Purucker unfolds in The Esoteric Tradition.

This new edition offers a broad, yet detailed introduction to theosophy, synthesizing philosophy, science, and religion in a way that enables the reader to see universes, worlds, humanity, and all nature as different aspects of one evolving cosmic pattern. And throughout the tapestry runs the thread of altruism and service as the way towards bettering all life.

Topics include: what theosophy is and is not; the origin and structure of the universe; karma and reincarnation; cycles of human evolution; processes of death and rebirth; good and evil; divinity and the Hierararchy of Compassion; avatars, buddhas, and christs; mediums vs. mediators; the esoteric schools and the great teachers of mankind — these and much more contribute to the panorama of The Esoteric Tradition.

H. P. Blavatsky
3 vols
Hardcover or Paperback
2 Vol. Set (facsimile of the original)
with
3rd Volume Van Mater Index

Continuously in print for over 100 years, the SD remains today the most comprehensive sourcebook of the esoteric tradition, outlining the fundamental tenets of the "Secret Doctrine of the Archaic Ages." Challenging, prophetic, and strikingly modern, it directly addresses the perennial questions: continuity of life after death, purpose of existence, good and evil, consciousness and substance, sexuality, karma, evolution, and human and planetary transformation. From the Preface - "The aim of this work may be thus stated: to show that Nature is not 'a fortuitous concurrence of atoms,' and to assign to man his rightful place in the scheme of the Universe; to rescue from degradation the archaic truths which are the basis of all religions; and to uncover, to some extent, the fundamental unity from which they all spring."  Based on the ancient Stanzas of Dzyan (see link below) with corroborating testimony from over 1,200 sources, these volumes unfold the drama of cosmic and human evolution -- from the reawakening of the gods after a "Night of the Universe" to the ultimate reunion of cosmos with its divine source. Supplementary sections discuss relevant scientific issues as well as the mystery language of myths, symbols, and allegories, helping the reader decipher the often abstruse imagery of the world's sacred literature.

218 pages
  (Paperback

  (Hardcover $20.00  Add to Cart) or order from Amazon

Occultism (from the Latin occultus, meaning "hid") as presented here refers primarily to the esoteric theosophy concealed in religion and nature. In this series of articles, Blavatsky clarifies the "essential difference between theoretical and practical Occultism," and the gulf that separates harmful occult practices from the occult path of altruism. / Also included is a timely three-part article on "The Esoteric Character of the Gospels" which casts revealing light on the mystery of Jesus - as man and as Christ - and also upon the succession of messianic ages.

Definition of "occult" from Back Cover: "The term OCCULT has noble, but largely forgotten origins. Derived from the Latin 'occultus' meaning 'hidden,' it properly defines anything which is undisclosed, concealed, or not easily perceived. Early theologians, for example, spoke of "the occult judgment of God," while "occult philosopher" was a designation for the pre-Renaissance scientist who sought the unseen causes regulating nature's phenomena. In astronomy, the term is still used when one stellar body 'occults' another by passing in front of it, temporarily hiding it from view."  Writing a century ago, when the word had not acquired today's mixed connotations, H. P. Blavatsky defined OCCULTISM as "altruism" - the divine wisdom or hidden theosophy within all religions. Occultism is founded on the principle that Divinity is concealed - transcendent yet immanent -- within every living being. As a spiritual discipline occultism is the renunciation of selfishness; it is the "still small path" which leads to wisdom, to the right discrimination between good and evil, and the practice of altruism.

Written in the form of question and answer, The Key to Theosophy is an excellent introduction for the inquirer. After the publication of Isis Unveiled and The Secret Doctrine, the author was deluged with questions about the human constitution, spiritual and psychological; the mysteries of periodic rebirths; and the difference between fate, destiny, free will, and karma. These and many other questions on the basic theosophical concepts are answered simply and directly. The work is enhanced by a 60-page glossary of philosophical terms drawn from Sanskrit, Hebrew, and classical literature. Verbatim with the original edition

"I believe that this book has strongly influenced many sincere seekers and aspirants to the wisdom and compassion of the Bodhisattva Path." - 14th Dalai Lama

Translated from the Book of the Golden Precepts, which shares a common origin with the Stanzas of Dzyan of The Secret Doctrine, the rules and ethics presented in the Voice contrast the two paths of spiritual attainment: the one pursued by those seeking knowledge for their own enlightenment; the other chosen by those whose aspirations are prompted by compassion for all.

These messages are not only of historical significance, but address many issues confronting us today: the growth of psychism, our spiritual development, the need for brotherhood and altruism, and the role of theosophists and The Theosophical Society in the modern world. An essay by Kirby Van Mater provides the setting in theosophical history. Sketching important events from the founding of the Society to HPB's death in 1891, it gives the reader a better understanding of the major currents affecting H. P. Blavatsky and her lifework.

ISIS UNVEILED - H. P. Blavatsky  (2vols)
1,471 pages

(Paperback - $36.00 Add to Cart) or  order from Amazon

"One of the most remarkable productions of the century." - New York Herald, 1877

H. P. Blavatsky's first major literary effort, a critical response to the growing materialism in both scientific and religious institutions, is a vindication of the ageless quest. In the author's words, Isis "is the fruit of a somewhat intimate acquaintance with Eastern adepts and study of their science. . . . They showed us that by combining science with religion, the existence of God and immortality of man's spirit may be demonstrated." Supported by extensive evidence from religious and mystical traditions, classical scholarship, and the testimony of nature, these volumes aid the student in detecting the vital principles which underlie the philosophical systems of old. Volume I focuses on the prevailing scientific theories of the time, balanced against the "anciently universal Wisdom Religion," while Volume II examines the creeds of religions past and present, alongside the myths and symbols of various cultures. Throughout, the author strikes at the root of dogma and affirms the "paramount importance of re-establishing the Hermetic philosophy in a world which blindly believes it has outgrown it." This edition also includes two articles by H. P. Blavatsky on the writing of Isis Unveiled: "My Books" (1891) and "Theories About Reincarnation and Spirits" (1886). Topics include: Comparative Buddhism and Christianity - Egyptian Wisdom - Masonry and Kabbala - The Astral Light - Mediumship vs. Adeptship - The Inner and Outer Man - Psychic Phenomena - Oriental Cosmogonies - Platonic Philosophy - Savior Legends -- Cycles in Nature - Gnosticism - The Ancient Mysteries .

(Paperback $24.95Add to Cart

In her quest for truth and universal brotherhood, H. P. Blavatsky opened a new realm of ideas to the world, influencing poets, writers, artists, philosophers, and scientists alike - among them Yeats, James Joyce, L. Frank Baum, Kandinsky, Mondrian, Scriabin, Gandhi, William James, Thomas Edison, and Einstein. Social historian Theodore Roszak ranks her "among the modern world's trailblazing psychologists of the visionary mind." A product of 14 years' research and writing, "this book portrays HPB's supporters and detractors, using newly uncovered materials to present as complete a biography of this enigmatic woman and her wisdom as possible" (Booklist, American Library Association). An important addition to theosophical history.

H. P. BLAVATSKY AND THE SPR:
AN EXAMINATION OF THE HODGSON REPORT OF 1885

Vernon Harrison, Ph.D.
108 pages

(Hardcover $20.00 Add to Cart) - or order from Amazon

In December 1885 the Society for Psychical Research (SPR) in London, England, published a 200-page report by Richard Hodgson, perhaps best known for its denunciation of H. P. Blavatsky as an "impostor," and often featured in encyclopedias, reference books, and biographical works. / In April 1986 the SPR Journal, "in the interests of truth and fair play," published a critical analysis of the Hodgson Report by handwriting expert Vernon Harrison, who found it "riddled with slanted statements, conjectures advanced as fact or probable fact, uncorroborated testimony of unnamed witnesses, selection of evidence and downright falsity." Since then Dr. Harrison continued his research, including a line-by-line examination of 1,323 color slides of the Mahatma Letters, and in a second monograph (1997) concluded that "the Hodgson Report is even worse than I had thought." /  H. P. Blavatsky and the SPR combines both of Dr. Harrison's papers with his Opinion, Replies to Criticism, formal Affidavit, and 13 full color plates of sample pages from the Mahatma and Blavatsky letters. / About the Author: "His expertise is of special relevance in this instance since much of the Hodgson Report concerns the authorship of certain letters which Hodgson claims were forged by Mme. Blavatsky herself. Dr. Vernon Harrison, a past President of the Royal Photographic Society, was, for ten years, Research Manager to Thomas De La Rue, printers of banknotes, passports and stamps, etc., so there is probably not much that he does not know about forgery. He is not a member of the Theosophical Society but he is a long-standing member of the SPR." - John Beloff, Ph.D., Editor

ECHOES OF THE ORIENT: Volume 1  700 pages

Compiled by Dara Eklund
(Hardcover $35.00 Add to Cart) - in free PDF Here - or order from Amazon

VOL1 : Echoes are heard in every age of a timeless path that leads to divine wisdom and to knowledge of our purpose in the universal design. Today’s resurgent awareness of our physical and spiritual interdependence affirms those pioneering keynotes set forth in the writings of H. P. Blavatsky. Her task was to re-present the broad panorama of the "anciently universal Wisdom-Religion," to show its underlying expression in the world's myths, legends, and spiritual traditions, and to show its scientific basis — with the overarching goal of furthering the cause of universal brotherhood. / Some people, however, have found her books difficult and ask for something simpler. The writings of William Q. Judge, one of the Theosophical Society's co-founders and a close personal colleague of HPB, help fill this need. His OCEAN OF THEOSOPHY and LETTERS THAT HAVE HELPED ME remain classics in the literature, describing in clear language the fundamental ideas of the wisdom-tradition and its path of spiritual quest. Yet the greater part of Judge's literary output was for decades accessible only to those fortunate enough to have copies of the magazine he started and edited. In character with the themes it dealt with, he named it The Path. / This first volume of Echoes of the Orient comprises about 170 articles from The Path magazine, chronologically arranged and supplemented by his popular "Occult Tales." Also included are a well-documented 50-page biography, numerous illustrations, photographs, and facsimiles, as well as a bibliography and index.  Volume 2, see below.

VOL 2: Thes second volume comprises contributions to several Theosophical journals. In The Irish Theosophist we see his influence on his native Ireland where he helped to kindle the Irish Literary Renaissance. In Europe H.P.B. welcomed his valuable articles in her Lucifer magazine. As an outcome of W. Q. Judge’s trip to India in the summer of 1884, The Theosophist printed several accounts of his lectures there. These summaries are included along with several articles contributed to that chief organ of the Society. The Path magazine material not found in Volume One embraces miscellaneous articles, news items, and a few editorial statements; and these are included here. “Answers to Questioners” and dialogues, such as “The Stream of Thought and Queries,” are grouped with The Theosophical Forum extracts. It is in these extracts that Mr. Judge’s gift as a teacher shines most vividly in his simple yet cogent answers to questioning students. A report of The Theosophical Congress held at The World’s Parliament of Religions (Chicago World’s Fair) was compiled in book form by the American T.S. in 1893. As this report is accessible only in a few major Theosophical libraries, we are reprinting here the contributions of W. Q. Judge, who acted as chairman of the advisory council to this Parliament on behalf of Theosophy. Volume 3, see below.

This volume is divided into five sections, the first a series of articles introducing theosophical concepts which Judge wrote for Kate Field’s Washington, under the title “Echoes from the Orient”. Sections 2 – 4 contain tracks and pamphlets issued by Judge – including his highly-esteemed “Epitome of Theosophy” – as well as articles in newspapers and journals other than those in the first two volumes, and miscellanea (extracts, undated articles, etc.). The fifth and largest section, comprising nearly half the volume, is devoted to “Suggestions and Aids” issued to students of the Eastern School of Theosophy, founded by H.P.B. with Judge’s assistance in 1888. These papers deal with matters more directly pertinent to theosophists, as well as with the core purposes of the Theosophical Society and its founders, the Mahatmas. That H. P. B. had full confidence   in Judge’s integrity and competence as a teacher is made clear by her statement (Echoes 3:414): … "The Esoteric Section and its life in the U.S.A. depends on W.Q.J. remaining its agent & what he is now. The day W.Q.J. resigns, H.P.B. will be virtually dead for the Americans. W.Q.J. is the Antaskarana [connecting link] between the two Manas(es) [minds], the American thought & the Indian — or rather the trans-Himalayan — Esoteric Knowledge. Dixi."   H.P.B

The warmth and humanity of this collection of Judge's letters has inspired many seekers on the Path. In clear, compelling language, the author shows that in our search for spirit, the need is not to escape the world but to help transform it - through the constant effort to be compassionate, resolute, and wise in daily life. / "I would never let the least fear or despair come before me, but if I cannot see the road, nor the goal for the fog, I would simply sit down and wait; I would not allow the fog to make me think no road was there, and that I was not to pass it. The fogs must lift. / "What then is the panacea finally, the royal talisman? It is DUTY, Selflessness. Duty persistently followed is the highest yoga, and is better than mantrams or any posture, or any other thing. If you can do no more than duty it will bring you to the goal." - 2:3. / Letters That Have Helped Me combines two volumes in one. The first, published in 1891, consists of letters written by W. Q. Judge ("Z") to a friend and co-worker, Mrs. Julia Campbell Ver Planck ("Jasper Niemand"). The second volume, compiled after the death of the author, contains letters and extracts from his letters written to a number of people in different parts of the world.

The Bhagavad-Gita is probably the most influential work India has produced. In the form of a dialogue between its hero Arjuna and the avatara Krishna, this Hindu classic is an allegory of Man in his evolutionary development -- a searching look at the "field of dharma." In 1890, responding to many requests for a nonacademic exposition of the Gita, Judge published the present recension, and also wrote several illuminating essays on the Gita. These essays, issued together with his recension, make this volume unique among the many renditions of this ancient classic now available.

Photographic facsimile of the compiler's 2nd edition

Preserved in the British Library, these letters were written between 1880 and 1884 to Alfred P. Sinnett, editor of a leading Anglo-Indian newspaper, The Pioneer. His correspondents were two Mahatmas whom Blavatsky has acknowledged as her teachers. First published in 1923, this important volume is filled with sublime philosophical and ethical instruction, revealing not only far-reaching concepts of religious and scientific thought (since proven in large degree prophetic), but also practicality, warmth of heart, patience, and ripeness of humor. These letters, moreover, yield a clearer understanding of H. P. Blavatsky, the early history of the TS, and of the Mahatmas' aim in fostering a real universal fraternity.

"The term 'Universal Brotherhood' is no idle phrase. Humanity in the mass has a paramount claim upon us. . . . If it be a dream, it is at least a noble one for mankind: and it is the aspiration of the true adept." -- p. 17

From 1924 to 1927 there were sponsored a series of private studies in The Secret Doctrine, with Dr. de Purucker as lecturer. This record of the meetings provides an excellent introduction to H. P. Blavatsky's masterwork, yet it stands on its own as a clear restatement of the philosophy expounded by all great thinkers and sages. Beginning with the three fundamental postulates of the SD, the presentation moves to cosmic and human evolution, with emphasis on the interconnectedness of all beings. Other topics include man's nature and destiny; avataras and buddhas; initiation, the Mysteries, and ethical values. Second and Revised Edition.

H. P. Blavatsky pointed to the fundamental concepts of The Secret Doctrine as comprising the principles of an ancient wisdom existing long before the dawn of history.

This new edition offers a broad, yet detailed introduction to theosophy, synthesizing philosophy, science, and religion in a way that enables the reader to see universes, worlds, humanity, and all nature as different aspects of one evolving cosmic pattern. And throughout the tapestry runs the thread of altruism and service as the way towards bettering all life.

Topics include: what theosophy is and is not; the origin and structure of the universe; karma and reincarnation; cycles of human evolution; processes of death and rebirth; good and evil; divinity and the Hierararchy of Compassion; avatars, buddhas, and christs; mediums vs. mediators; the esoteric schools and the great teachers of mankind — these and much more contribute to the panorama of The Esoteric Tradition.

Behind the world's religions, philosophies, and sciences lies the hidden source of humanity's inner life and spiritual sustenance. Through the intellectual awakening of infant mankind millions of years ago, to the subsequent misuse of knowledge which led to the foundation of Mystery colleges by great sages and seers, The Mystery Schools traces this movement back to the earliest times. It describes the role of the brotherhood of adepts in discovering, disseminating, and preserving the truths of nature and man, and discusses the purposes and methods of the Mysteries, the pattern of esotericism, routes of initiation, and the Mystery schools today.

Addressing the controversial question, "Is the universe intelligently designed?", this 32 PAGE introductory booklet surveys critical problems in both Darwinian theory and creationist theology: organic complexity and the origin of life; the relationship of consciousness and matter; who or what is God; design, disparity, and imperfection; and the origin and evolution of man.

Useful for group study.

"A Mystery School is not dependant of location; rather it is the association of spiritually disciplined individuals bound by one common purpose, service to humanity, a service intelligently and compassionately rendered because born of love and wisdom
"
Grace F. Knoche


 
"There are many whose spiritual longing and philosophical inquiry are too sacred to be exposed among strangers or even among friends who they suspect may have entirely different views. The fact is, it is the written word that allows the student the privacy of his own thoughts, that gives rise to the most profound aspirations and the most intuitive insights. It is literature, then due to its impersonal character, its relative permanence and its very silence, that has motivated us."  Richard Robb - Founder of Wizards Bookshelf
