The Secret Doctrine Extracts (Vol 1)

These selections from H. P. Blavatsky’s best known book – the Secret Doctrine, a Theosophical classic and landmark in thought – provide easy access to over 100 pages of its key passages and are gathered together in this convenient form.

This photographic facsimile of the 1888 First Edition contains

  • the Preface,
  • the Introductory,
  • the Proem,
  • the Stanzas from the Book of Dzyan (Vol. 1) and
  • the Summing Up.

Also included are the ‘Evolution of Consciousness’ diagram from SD 1:200 and the Publisher’s Notes on it. When all these are studied together they will give a sound introduction to the universal philosophy of theosophy.

The Secret Doctrine remains one of the most remarkable and wide ranging books on science, religion and philosophy, and there is little to compare to it in depth and breadth.

These selections are for theosophical students and researchers who wish to probe into the nature of consciousness and matter and seek answers to the origin and aim of Life itself, the universal, conscious principle that it postulates is present throughout the universe.
