Publisher's Summary

Originally published in 1879, this essay begins with a quick overview of the beginnings of the Theosophical Society. The author quickly moves on to discuss theosophy's place in the religions of the world, with greater attention being paid to Buddhism. He also spends time on reincarnation and karma as two principle aspects of theosophy. There is also discussion of the Great White Brotherhood, as Blavatsky would have called it - or, more simply, the adepts or ascended masters.

Narrator made me want to cut my wrist!!!

The book content was great, informative, and I learned a lot. Unfortunately, the narrator made this a painful experience!! I will never buy another book narrated by him.

I am blown away by this...

This is for those who are seeking higher levels of understanding of the order of things in the world and cosmos, and their own place in it as participating in an eternal orchestra. It represents the highest level of involvement with movements that infinitely transcend the egoic claims and selfish desires.
