Publisher's Summary

Annie Besant was a writer, lecturer, prominent Theosophist and women's rights activist of her time. She was a frequent contributor to various Theosophical publications of her day. This particular piece dates to 1910, and she takes a philosophical examination of the mysteries of evil, as she puts it. She explains that there is a necessity for evil to exist, that it serves certain purposes, which she goes into detail about. She breaks evil into four categories: the origin of evil, the relativity of evil, the use of evil and the ending of evil.

Opens the heart and the mind

Words escape me because I truly cannot describe fully how this book has tremendously helped me answer questions that I have been seeking the answers to. There are parts that might be very dense to those who are not seekers of esoteric knowledge or have no background on philosophy. I am not a philosophy major but much of the tools that I used to navigate through this book. A must read!
