Description

A Very Good copy of Adyar Pamphlet No 116 in the Publisher's original wrappers printed August 1920, having been reprinted from "The Theosophist" Volume XI, May 1890. In 1875, the Russian occultist, philosopher, and author Helena Petrovna Blavatsky -- along with American military officer, journalist Henry Steel Olcott, the first prominent American of European ancestry to make a formal conversion to Buddhism, and the Irish mystic, esotericist, and occultist William Quan Judge -- co-founded the Theosophical Society, a group which promoted an esoteric religion called "Theosophy". Considered to be Theosophy's leading theoretician, Blavatsky described Theosophy as "the synthesis of science, religion and philosophy" which was a revival of an "Ancient Wisdom" which underlay all the world's religions. Blavatsky taught that that there is an ancient and secretive brotherhood of spiritual adepts known as Ascended Masters, who—although found across the world—are centered in Tibet, that these Masters cultivated great wisdom and supernatural powers, and that it was they who initiated the modern Theosophical movement through disseminating their teachings to others via Blavatsky. This ephemeral pamphlet is in Very Good condition with modest evidence of handling, some toning to the pages, and a tide mark to the lower right corner. A Very Good copy of this scarce pamphlet written by the most influential early proponent of Theosophy from whose writings Theosophy most prominently drew the components of its belief system. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.
