The Secret Doctrine (1888) by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 - 1891) presented compelling evidence for the existence of a timeless Wisdom Tradition, which has a world view based on the fundamental principles of oneness, interconnectedness and periodicity. The essential teaching of this Tradition points to the unity of all life, the interdependence of all natural processes and the profound identity between the human being's true Self and the cosmos.

This book, in its second and revised edition. identifies remarkable parallels between the Ancient Wisdom and the insights of both modern science and contemporary thought. The author correlates main ideas from Blavatsky's Magnum Opus with the views of eminent scientists like Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955), Ilya Prigogine (1917 - 2003), David Bohm (1917 - 1992), Niels Bohr (1885 - 1962) and many others. She succesfully shows, that the findings of modern science have a resonance with the insights of ancient seers about the nature of Reality.

From Chapter 15 - 'Self-Transformation' (p. 213):

" The work of self-transformation on the path is to enlarge the scope of our conciousness to include all the levels of our being and to integrate all the layers and levels into a dynamic whole. The aim of evolution, which the path hastens, is to release all our potentials and place them at the service of the Self, which can then integrate the newly developed powers into its sphere of ever-expanding activity. Our unfoldment is not merely the awakening of spirituality, but gaining the conscious use of all that is in us at every level. "
