Blavatsky was a world traveler who eventually settled in India where, with Olcott, established the headquarters of the Society in Madras (now Chennai). Her first major book Isis Unveiled (1877) presented elements mainly from the Western wisdom tradition based on her extensive travels in Asia, Europe and the Middle East. Her second major work The Secret Doctrine (1888), contains a commentary on The Book of Dzyan, and is based upon what she called the Ancient Wisdom or Wisdom Religion, which is described as the underlying basis of all the religions of humanity. These writings, along with her Key to Theosophy and The Voice of the Silence are key texts.
According to her own story as told to a later biographer, she spent the years 1848 to 1858 traveling the world. She visited Egypt, France, Canada (Quebec), England, South America, Germany, Mexico, India, Greece and especially Tibet, where she studied for some years with the ascetics, to whom she referred as Brothers. Blavatsky was initiated for theosophical work while in Tibet.

This book gives an individual a guide to the spiritual nature of our being. By showing us our true essence, The Secret Doctrine allows us a glimpse of what we can be if we are only realize that we are all one. That we all would be better people if we respected other people's beliefs systems even though they are diferent then ours. Understanding that there is one GOD no mattter if you are a Christian, a Jew, or a Buddist.

There is no religion higher then truth is the writers basic principle. The book explains about the common and conceiled wisdom in al religions and faith. After more then 110 years still a classic must read, both classic as modern....

this book is very interesting; I think the most interesting philosophical work ever. Would give a reader a lot to think about. I highly recommend it for serious thinkers.
