H. P. Blavatsky, can this be true?!

I am wondering if anyone who has read her work has also read , The Secret Teaching of All Ages by Manly P Hall and if so are the two works similar ?


Sort of, inasmuch as both books contain a whole helluva lot of folklore and very few historical facts. Blavatsky's work is indeed monumental, but don't buy into everything she says, and be prepared to separate the wheat from a whole lot of chaff.

Sa,e thing with the Hall book, which I bought only for the art work.

Personally, I would much more recommend the work of Eliphas Levi over Blavatsky, but Blavatsky had one thing Levi didn't: marketing skills. Thus she is regarded as the spiritual forebear of modern occultism, when in reality she was just the one most popular with the herd, to borrow a term from Nietzsche.

Hell, for that matter....it's better to read Nietzsche!

This is a good lecture, by, oh, Lord help me, Camille Paglia!

You said :
Does anyone else know something I don't about Blavatsky?

Well, this is difficult to assess, since you haven't explicitly stated how much you know already ...

Assuming that your friend's book is your first exposure to HPV, then maybe the following could be helpful -

Also, based on more than ample evidence of an entire cadre of adolescent and idiotic Occultist Wannabees slinging their delusional nonsense around here at ATS ( while mostly at the same time titillating each others' vastly oversized egos ), perhaps the following is in order as well -

Finally, if your goal to find some peace and happiness in your life, why not 'cut straight to the chase,' and 'get down to business' with a 'jumpstart' from these fine gentlemen -
