The Secret Doctrine: The Synthesis of Science, Religion and Philosophy by H. P. Blavtsky. Six Volume Edition.

£180.00

Product description

The first proposition is that there is one underlying, unconditioned, indivisible Truth, variously called "the Absolute", "the Unknown Root", "the One Reality", etc. It is causeless and timeless, and therefore unknowable and non-describable: "It is 'Be-ness' rather than Being".

Ukrainian-born Madame Helena Blavatsky (1831–91) was a powerful member of the spiritualist world and for a time famous for her powers as a medium. She was a co-founder of the theosophy movement in the United States, which she later extended to Europe and India, drawing from her extensive global travels and her familiarity with a broad range of belief systems, from Asian religions to New Orleans voodoo, as well as secret societies such as the Freemasons. Drawing from Hinduism and Buddhism, theosophy aimed to understand the mystic powers of the universe and promote the study of other religions. Though many denounced her as a fraud, her writings provide an insight into the driving forces behind nineteenth-century spiritualist movements. In The Secret Doctrine, published in 1888, Blavatsky aims to explain the spiritual origins of the world.

This six volume edition was reprinted from the original and published in 1950 by The Theoretical Publishing House, London. 6 hardback editions with navy cloth covers and gold gilt titles on cover and spines. Good condition considering age. Slight foxing inside cover and one some pages, mainly in first few volumes. Wear and tear to the corners of the cover and spine, with slight discolouration on spine too. Comprises:-Vol 1. 'Cosmogenesis' - part one ; Vol 2. 'Cosmogenesis' - parts 2 & 3 ; Vol 3. 'Anthropogenesis' - part 1; Vol 4. 'Anthropogenesis' - parts 2 & 3 ; Vol 5. [untitled] and Vol 6. Index & Glossary.
