This wonderful book written by a lifelong student of theosophy is an excellent introduction for those new to theosophical ideas and a helpful companion and guide for long-time students.
Written with warmth and insight, it centers on the major concepts of theosophical philosophy and their application to daily living. Evolution, the awakening of mind, reincarnation, death and illness, karma, the hierarchy of compassion, and other subjects are treated with clarity, vigor, and emphasis on their practical significance. The background and purpose of the Theosophical Society are described, along with H. P. Blavatsky’s life and work, including the fundamental propositions of The Secret Doctrine. — see Review Article, Sunrise magazine, February/March 2002
