Continuously in print for over 100 years, the SD remains today the most comprehensive sourcebook of the esoteric tradition, outlining the fundamental tenets of the Secret Doctrine of the Archaic Ages. Challenging, prophetic, and strikingly modern, it directly addresses the perennial questions: continuity of life after death, purpose of existence, good and evil, consciousness and substance, sexuality, karma, evolution, and human and planetary transformation.

Boris de Zirkoff started collecting his aunt's articles and letters (he was related to Blavatsky) quite early in life and . The series includes a reprint of The Secret Doctrine and Isis Unveiled - both with the excellent footnotes we've come to expect from Boris de Zirkoff.

Boris de Zirkoff started collecting his aunt's articles and letters (he was related to Blavatsky) quite early in life and started out making a series of Collected Works, but that material was lost. Then he teamed up with Quest Publications, a publishing house of the Theosophical Society Adyar. They ended up doing the whole series. called The Blavatsky Collected Writings. Perhaps most interesting in the series is the collection of fictionalized stories of Blavatsky's travels in India.

The Secret Doctrine is the most widely disseminated theosophical source book. Because of its encyclopedic range, indexing the SD has proved a complex and challenging task. My original instructions were: "Start by making your own index. The indices prepared by Boris de Zirkoff and the United Lodge of Theosophists were also consulted, and further useful entries included.

The Secret Doctrine, the Synthesis of Science, Religion and Philosophy, is a two-volume work written by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, which laid the foundation of modern Theosophy. It is regarded as "one of the monuments of modern esotericism. Originally published in 1888, it gave the spiritual history of the development of the cosmos (or kosmos, as the author would have it) and of human life on earth

Three Volumes in a Slipcase

In perhaps the most definitive work on esoteric wisdom ever written, HPB comprehensively surveys the origins of the cosmos and the prehistory of humanity, synthesizing religion and science within the context of the perennial philosophy. Originally published in 1888, The Secret Doctrine continues to be the principal source book for students of Theosophy, not as the final word on the subject, but as a stimulus to encourage the student to ponder its thoughts with a free and questing mind.

I am a begginer student of esoterism and I am just so glad I got this book. Take notice to choose the book by the Theosophical university press, that's the original one. The two volumes come in a very high quality paperback edition. The content is pretty dense.
Overall, pretty satisfied with my new acquisition.
One vexing characteristic of esoteric lore is its continual bombardment of disorganized symbolism. The Secret Doctrine clarifies very little. It is also horribly organized. The entire piece is an ever-flowing, overflowing stream of consciousness blot. In addition, the writer goes on these rants about science and materialism, which I do not entirely disagree with, but--still--I found them distracting. I really want to like this book, and I really do believe there is a diamond in this lump of coal many call an occult bible, but--my God--these ideas are articulated with the grace of an elephant stampede. Manly Hall respected and admired the writer, but he also communicates the same ideas far better in his own works, which are endless. I give this book a 3-star rating for its potential alone. Read Manly Hall for a more "legible" format.
The good:
This is the book that started it all. "All" being the West's awakening to the heretofore hidden secrets of the cosmos and of mankind. HPB was not a "seer," she was a mouthpiece. She wrote what was given to her in communication with certain Eastern masters, which she received in, for lack of a better term, a trance, or psychic link to these other personalities. Even her enemies gloss over the fact that she wrote the book alone in her room with none of the books that she cites in her thousands of footnotes and references. Not a single one to this day has proved erroneous. She cites manuscripts in the Vatican Library where she has never been allowed entrance; she cites unpublished manuscripts throughout the ages. For many, the most important book published in many centuries.

The bad:
It's horribly written. It always reminds me of a beautiful stained glass creation that has been smashed to pieces and thrown back together willy-nilly. It makes Ulysses look like a comic strip. She is also angry, sarcastic, and bitter. And incredibly defensive.

The ugly:
Believe nothing from these Eastern masters when they speak of Christianity. They know little about it, for starters, but more annoying -- they hate it, and spare no opportunity to tear it to pieces, deliberately conflating the deeds and thoughts of self-proclaimed "Christians" at their worst, while propping up the Eastern view as the best and one-and-only.

But with these caveats, the book is indispensable and a must-read for anyone with any pretense of serious study of the mysteries of the universe.
After this, read Steiner.
Don't buy this edition - besides very poor formatting and a lousy table of contents, it doesn't match with the real one (check the authentic one on Theosophical University Press site).
Timeless classic for Theosophists, basic reference text. This is heavy reading. I purchased it for my fiance who read his original copy so much that it got worn - he passed it on to a friend. I do not recommend this book for people who do not have a strong interest in Theosophy.
Still rereading this book years after getting it. It is so dense with ideas some take a while to digest.
Some of the mystical stuff is not my interest, but I always keep an open mind.
Very good at defining and clarifying the Theosophy doctrine yes she was.
Highly suggested.
