THE SECRET DOCTRINE, BY

H. P.

BLAVATSKY,

AUTHOR OF

“ ISIS

UNVEILED.”

“‘The Secret Doctrine is the most complete and interesting exposition of Occultism and Esoteric Philosophy ever published.” ’

Volume I. contains a general outline of the Esoteric Doctrine in its relation to the formation of the Solar System, preceded by a statement of the fundamental philosophic conceptions which underlie the entire system.

The mysteries of Religious and Occult Symbology are treated at considerable length n a part of the work devoted to that subject and the bearing of Modern Science upon the “ Secret Doctrine ” is discussed with considerable care. ;

Volume

II.

deals with the Esoteric Doctrine as to the evolution of

Man on

this earth.

This Volume contains an account of the various origins of man. It gives the outline of his evolutionary history down to the close of the race immediately preceding our own the history terminating with the archaic version of the events which are related in the Bible account of The Exodus of the Israelites.

The Theosophical Publication Society has been established for the purpose of being a centre from which Theosophical Literature can be disseminated, and made available for all those who wish to learn something respecting those deeper truths of Science, Philosophy and Religion, which are now

offered to the world.

For this purpose Pamphlets are published in a cheap form, and are sent post free to every subscriber to the Society. The Pamphlets consist of original essays explanatory of Theosophy, as well as reprints of articles of value at present buried in the back numbers of magazines.

The Society proposes, in addition, to publish works on Theosophy, Occult Science, and kindred subjects, and also to bring out translations of valuable articles and books written in other languages.

This Magazine is devoted to inquiry into Religion, Metaphysics, Philosophy, Psychology, and the Occult Sciences. Its standpoint is purely unsectarian, and

its

columns are open to

free discussion of these subjects.

PRESS NOTICES. “Undoubtedly there is not only learning, but literary taste, displayed in more than one of the papers in the numbers of Lucifer and scattered over it are sound ethical maxims disguised in Theosophy. Of the fiction that is here associated with occultism There is a promise, however, not only of eeriness, but it is, perhaps, too soon to speak. of skill in plot-construction, in The Blossom and the Fruit.’ ” Spectator. ;

now enjoy no inconsiderable vogue, and have a very respectable literature of then- own, rejoicing, for example, in a theosophical monthly entitled Lucifer, ‘designed lo bring light to the hidden things of darkness’; under the editorship of H. P. Blavatskyand Mabel Collins .” Saturday Review. "
