More a definition of occultism and advice to the unwary than anything else, these essays define the differences between black and white magic and serve as a warning to those tempted to pursue the hidden knowledge for selfish ends.

This probably wasn’t the best place for me to start reading Blavatsky, but her “Secret Doctrine” was so large (and expensive) that I took a chance and got this smaller book that I thought would serve as an introduction to her concepts of “Occultism” and Initiation. It isn’t that. It’s a selection of articles from her newsletter Lucifer, written between 1887 and 1890 or so as an internal journal for the Theosophical Society.

Blavastky was an extraordinary woman and her knowledge of the occult somewhat overwhelming. That she was benevolent in her approach is refreshing - if she'd been a naughty witch there could have been a lot of trouble - soundly reasoned, articulated, astoundingly well researched but possibly a little too smug and assured about the spiritual world for modern tastes.

Really enjoyed this. Though the book is a compilation of articles that appeared elsewhere, great perspectives on hypnotism, black-white magic, psychic- noetic action, c(k)osmic mind, etc. A great place to start if you are researching or exploring Esoteric Character of the Gospels, Gnosticism, Astral Bodies... you don't need any prior knowledge/education on these topics to understand this book, though I did have to Google a few words. Recommended.

Three stars on the merit of being reprinted primary source material. This book gives a nice taste of the spiritualism subculture that was active in the 19th and early 20th centuries. It's important to keep in mind how the west percieved the world at this time. Blavatsky's melange of eastern philosophies was a style much in vogue.
