This classic commentary on H.P. Blavatsky’s Secret Doctrine is now back in print in its original edition, with two appendices and a new expanded index. De Purucker’s comprehensive overview of this “conscious, spiritually purposive universe”, includes the seven jewels of wisdom: including karma, reincarnation, self-becoming, hierarchies, psychology and pneumatology of the universe, space, the boundless all, the microcosm, mirror of the microcosm, interpenetrating spheres of being, the nature of matter and consciousness, etc.
Fundamentals is truly, “a viewpoint of the Real, bringing a sense of the unbroken thread of even-extending life … with “magic casements” opening upon birth, inner worlds of Reality stimulating one to daring flights of thoughts … a further unveiling of the Jewels of Esoteric Wisdom begun in H.P.
