We will focus on volume one of the Secret Doctrine, which is a translation of- and commentary on- one of the greatest source teachings ever given to humanity, the Book of Dzyan. These ancient writings, unavailable until publication of the SD, describe the passage from the formless realms of pure Being to the manifested universe in all its diversity.

 

The webinars are usually held on the 3rd Sunday of each month and will include charts, photographs, and other graphics. Attendees are encouraged to help read passages and to participate in an open discussion style of presentation.

Secret Doctrine 1, presented by Francis Donald, held on Sep 17, 2017. This is the first webinar in an ongoing series of webinars on the occult masterwork, The Secret Doctrine, by H.P. Blavatsky. During this session, Francis looked at HPB’s life, one of the most extraordinary women of her– or any– time. Aside from being the most renowned occultist of her time, she was a concert pianist in Paris, fought alongside Garibaldi in the battle of Mentana, opened an occult school in Cairo, and walked through jungles to the Mayan temple ruins in southern Mexico. She and her constant companion, Colonel Olcott, were famous throughout India for championing Buddhists and Hindu beliefs in the face of the repressive policies of the colonial English politicians and missionaries, and throughout the world for founding the Theosophical Society. She was in regular contact with various Masters (including DK) who helped her to write her great works.
