Joyful Gnosis: Gnostic Light on Blavatsky’s Wisdom

By Stephan A. Hoeller.

25 Pages | Sunday July 27th, 2003 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, London | No ISBN.

The Blavatsky Lecture delivered at the Summer School of The Theosophical Society in England, the University of Loughborough.

An exploration of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky’s (1831 – 1891) teachings in the light of the embodiment of the Ancient Wisdom known as Gnosticism. The title of this lecture alludes to three specific topics:

  1. The teachings of the foundress and principal teacher of what has been called Modern Theosophy.
  2. The earlier embodiment of the Ancient Wisdom Tradition known as Gnosticism.
  3. The character of this same Wisdom tradition described here as ‘joyful Gnosis’.

From page 5:

” Gnosticism is the teaching based on Gnosis, the knowledge of transcendence arrived at by way of interior, intuitive means. Although Gnosticism thus rests on personal religious experience, it is a mistake to assume all such experience results in Gnostic recognitions. It is nearer the truth to say that Gnosticism expresses a specific religious experience, an experience that does not lend itself to the language of theology or philosophy, but which is instead closely affinitized to, and expresses itself through, the medium of myth. Indeed, one finds that most Gnostic scriptures take the forms of myths. The term ‘myth’ should not be taken to mean ‘stories that are not true’, but rather, that the truths embodied in these myths are of a different order from the dogmas of theology or the statements of philosophy. “

The Letters of H.P. Blavatsky to A.P. Sinnett

By Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891) with an introduction by A. Trevor Barker.

404 Pages | First published in 1925, 1973 facsimile edition | Hardcover | Theosophical University Press, Pasadena, California.

There are several references to the writing of The Secret Doctrine, which show to how great an extent the Masters were themselves responsible for that work. That is why the teaching of H.P.B. ‘remains for us the test and criterion of Theosophy, ‘ by which all other teaching on the subject must be judged.

From the Introduction (p. ix):

” After all, if the Masters do not know what Theosophy is, no one does, because in its essence, purity and completeness it is alone contained in the secret teaching of which the Guardians are the Masters Themselves. That teaching, as stated by H.P.B., ‘ is not the fancy of one of or several isolated individuals, but the fruit of work of thousands of generations of Adept Seers, ‘through who it was handed down from the first Divine Instructors of our Humanity. It is the substratum and basis of all the world-religions and philosophies, but its doctrines are the exclusive possession of none of them. It was the mission of Madame Blavatsky, under the instructions of those Adepts, to give to the world selected portions of that archaic teaching. It should be remembered that an Adept – a Master, is one who has achieved immortality, and therefore has the power to perceive Truth as it is and at will to reflect it without distortion. “

Dynamics of the Psychic World – Comments by H.P. Blavatsky

Comments by H. P. Blavatsky, comp. by Lina Psaltis.

132 Pages | 1972, Second reprint 2006 | Hard cover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar.

Psychic phenomena, magic, hypnotism, spiritualism, planes of perception, dreams, and spiritual progress – these are some of the subjects discussed in this collection of excertps from the writings of one of the most famous occultists of history: Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891).

In this small book the compiler has drawn together from various sources some of the important and interesting statements made by H.P. Blavatsky more than a century ago on subjects, which are arousing wide interest today. Her comments not only reveal something of her profound knowledge and wisdom, but are also fascinating, informative and relevant. They contain valuable advice to those who would dabble in psychic realms without being aware of their dangers and pitfalls.

From page 104/105:

” The key in each degree is the ‘aspirant himself’. It is not the fear of God, which is the beginning of Wisdom, but the knowledge of SELF which is WISDOM ITSELF. How grand and true appears, thus, to the student of Occultism who has commenced to realize some of the foregoing truths, the answer given by the Delphic Oracle to all who came seeking after Occult Wisdom – words repeated and enforced again and again by the wise Socrates: MAN KNOW THYSELF . . . ”

Rebirth of the Occult Tradition – How the Secret Doctrine of H.P. Blavatsky was written

By Boris M. de Zirkoff (1902–1981).

78 Pages | 1977, reprint 1990 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN 0835675351.

Dutch translation: Aan de Bron van de Occulte Traditie – Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland.

This publication represents an historical introduction to the Two-Volume 1978 Edition of The Secret Doctrine. The epoch-making work known as The Secret Doctrine is the magnum opus of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891). Its subtitle is: ‘The Synthesis of Science, Religion and Philosophy’.

The First Volume of The Secret Doctrine came off the Press on 20 October 1888. This fact is recorded by Richard Harte, then in London, and about to leave for India. In a set of the original edition (first printing), now in the archives of the present writer, there is, on the half-title page, a note in blue pencil signed by Richard Harte, which says:

” This is the first copy ever issued. I got it from Printer by special Messenger on the morning of the 20 Oct. ’88 as I was leaving the house 17 Lansdowne Road, with Col. Olcott for India (Col. went personally via Naples), The Second Vol. followed me to India. “ – R.H.

Aan de Bron van de Occulte Traditie

By Boris M. de Zirkoff (1902–1981).

100 Pagina’s | Softcover | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland, 1977 | ISBN 9061750490.

English original: Rebirth of the Occult Tradition – How the Secret Doctrine of H.P. Blavatsky was written – The Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar.

Dit werk is geschreven als historische inleiding op de editie van The Secret Doctrine die werd uitgegeven als onderdeel van de Collected Writings of H.P. Blavatsky.

Helena Petrovna Blavatsky werd op 31 juli 1831 te Ekaterinoslaw in Zuid-Rusland geboren. Al vroeg besefte ze dat ze voorbeschikt was om haar leven te wijden aan de studie en toepassing van het occultisme. In 1851 ontmoette ze voor het eerst haar geestelijke leraar, Meester Morya. Hij sprak met haar over het werk dat haar wachtte, waarna ze zijn leiding aanvaardde zowel bij haar innerlijke ontwikkeling als bij haar openbaar werk.

Na vele omzwervingen, waarbij ze o.a. Tibet bezocht, stichtte ze in New York met Henry Steel Olcott (1832 – 1907), William Quan Judge (1851 – 1896) en negentien anderen The Theosophical Society. Hier schreef ze ook Isis Unveiled. Op verzoek van een aantal goede vrienden vestigde ze zich in 1887 in London, waar ze The Secret Doctrine voltooide. Dit boek zag in 1888 het licht. H.P. Blavatsky stierf in London op 8 mei 1891.

Behalve haar hoofdwerken en talloze tijdschriftartikelen, moeten nog genoemd worden haar Sleutel tot de Theosofie en De Stem van de Stilte. Zoals elders vermeld, verschijnt haar hele oeuvre in H.P. Blavatsky, Collected Writings, verzorgd door Boris de Zirkoff.

Op verzoek van een aantal goede vrienden vestigde ze zich in 1887 in Londen, waar ze The Secret Doctrine voltooide. Dit boek zag in 1888 het licht. H.P. Blavatsky stierf in Londen op 8 mei 1891. Behalve haar hoofdwerken en talloze tijdschriftartikelen, moeten nog genoemd worden haar Sleutel tot Theosofie en De Stem van de Stilte. Haar hele oevre verscheen in de Collected Writings of H.P. Blavatsky, verzorgd door Boris de Zirkoff. Boris de Zirkoff werd geboren in Rusland. Na de revolutie studeerde hij aan verscheidene universiteiten vooral talen en de klassieken. Nadat hij naar de Verenigde Staten was geëmigreerd en daar genaturaliseerd was, vestigde hij zich op het hoofdkwartier van de Point Loma Theosophical Society bij San Diego, Californië, waar hij achttien jaar werkte voornamelijk op literair gebied. Sinds 1925 verzorgde hij H.P. Blavatsky, Collected Writings, waarvan veertien delen en een index zijn uitgekomen. Verder was hij hoofredacteur van Theosophia, een onafhankelijk driemaandelijks tijdschrift, dat in Los Angeles werd gepubliceerd. Hier heeft hij een theosofisch informatiecentrum gevestigd. In de genoemde serie Collected Writings verscheen in 1972 een herdruk van Isis Unveiled en in 1979 een van The Secret Doctrine. Hiervoor heeft de Zirkoff het merendeel van de honderden citaten en verwijzingen geverifieerd en waar nodig verbeterd, maar Blavatsky’s woorden onaangetast gelaten.

In Memory of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky – By Some of Her Pupils

198 Pages | Original Edition 1891, Death Centenary Edition 1991 | Paperback | Theosophy Company Private LTD., India.

PREFACE

The articles on Helena Petrovna Blavatsky that appeared in the monthly magazine ‘Lucifer’, after her death in 1891, were published the same year in a Memorial Volume. In 1931, to commemorate the centenary of her birth, a reprint of that book, with some additional material, was published by The Blavatsky Association of London.

Both the earlier editions have long been 0ut of print. The present photo-offset reprint is being published in the year of the hundredth anniversary of her passing as a tribute to this greatest Theosophist of our age.

THE PUBLISHERS

Bombay, 8th May 1991.

From page XI:

” The inspiration given by Madame Blavatsky has indeed been incalculable in regard to this inborn desire and determination to find the PATH, and to attain, at whatever cost, the realisation of the true SELF. For she showed, as has been shown from time immemorial, that the WAY lies within; that each man has the power to work out his own salvation without the intervention of any deity other than his own highest SELF. In the Doctrines of Reincarnation and Karma with which Madame Blavatsky familiarised the West, are to be found the arbiters of Man’s fate – wholly just, yet, when rightly understood, wholly merciful, and the ultimate appeasers of mortal sorrow. “
