What is the Secret Doctrine ?



Return to Blavatsky Selection

In 1888 H. P. Blavatsky published The Secret Doctrine. This detailed and complex book outlines a description, inner and outer, of the structure and operations of the cosmos and the origin and evolutionary destiny of the kingdoms of nature. Much of its content would have been considered esoteric in former eras, part of the mystery teaching of the ancient schools of both East and West.


This wisdom has been known and taught in every age, in myth and legend, symbol and glyph, and comes down to us from out of the darkness of prehistory.


Its substance or truth is also embodied in the various branches of learning, ancient and modern -- religion, philosophy, science, literature, and art. Hence HPB, having stated certain principles, was able to illustrate, by referring to the

world's literature, that what she was bringing forward has been part of the

thought-life of all previous ages. This is no accident: every age has had its

wise men, philosophers, artists, poets, who have speculated on cosmic and human life and described it in such a fashion that the universality of the secret

doctrine or perennial philosophy may be seen on every hand by those who have the eyes to see it.


The Secret Doctrine is the most widely disseminated Theosophical source book.
