Based upon the same stenographic notes as The Transactions of the Blavatsky Lodge, this this material has only recently come to light, having been misplaced for over a hundred years.
Newly transcribed, meticulously edited and carefully formatted, we are afforded a front row seat at the world’s first study class in The Secret Doctrine, with the author, H.P. Blavatsky, presiding over the discussion.
As noted in the Introduction:
This volume is intended neither to replace nor correct the existing The Transactions of the Blavatsky Lodge, but may be viewed as a companion work. A comparison with the Transactions immediately shows how much HPB edited the latter, yet these transcriptions provide a powerful, first hand introduction to HPB in discussion. We are treated to her broad, philosophical and penetrating mind, her biting wit, her gentle and not so gentle impatience with humane foibles, and her self-deprecating willingness to inquire into ideas and engage the minds of others.
The text and page numbers differ slightly from ULT edition that is for sale.
