The Known Text • The Secret Doctrine • Additional Sources • A Life of Mme. Blavatsky

"The Stanzas, therefore, give an abstract formula which can be applied, mutatis mutandis, to all evolution: to that of our tiny earth, to that of the chain of planets of which that earth forms one, to the solar Universe to which that chain belongs, and so on, in an ascending scale, till the mind reels and is exhausted in the effort.

"The seven Stanzas given in this volume represent the seven terms of this abstract formula. They refer to, and described the seven great stages of the evolutionary process, which are spoken of in the Purânas as the 'Seven Creations' and in the Bible as the Days of Creation."

— Proem, The Secret Doctrine

Mme. Blavatsky's famous transcribed messages from beyond, the mysterious Book of Dzyan, the heart of the sacred books of Kie-te, are said once to have been known only to Tibetan mystics. Quotations from Dzyan form the core of her closely-argued The Secret Doctrine, the most influential single book of occult knowledge to emerge from the last century.

The text of the book you hold reproduces nearly all of Book of Dzyan that Blavatsky transcribed. It also includes long excerpts from her Secret Doctrine as well as from the Society of Psychical Research's 1885 report concerning phenomena witnessed by members of the Theosophical Society. There are notes and additional shorter materials. Editor Maroney's biographical essay starts off the book, a fascinating portrait of an amazing woman.

Tim Maroney ed.; Cover by Jamie Oberschlake. 272 pages. Trade Paperback.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
