This book is a collection of mystical, philosophical, theosophical, historical and scientific essays selected from the first five volumes of "The Theosophist" magazine, which was then edited by H.P. Blavatsky. Originally published in 1885, this volume was revised, consisting for the most part of a consistent transliteration of Sanskrit terms and of a generally uniform style.

About the author (2003)

G. R. S. Mead is regarded as a pioneer in the field of Gnostic and Hermetic studies. A highly intuitive scholar, Mead joined the company of Madame Blavatsky and her close associates. In this circle, he learned the profound mysteries of the Gnostics and became a translator of these writings. Mead evidently suffered some scholarly prejudice because of his connections with Theosophy. However, he also visited with C. G. Jung during his last years, and Jung thanked him for his dedicated work, his outstanding use of the English language, and for his affinity toward the experience of Gnosis.
