“In speaking of the Real H P Blavatsky I use the term first of all as correcting the false representations and misconceptions which have been so commonly and so lightly accepted by the world at large: and secondly, as signifying – what in fact each of us possesses – an inner Self, a real Self as distinguished from the fluctuating, changing personality; a Self which, in the majority of us, is only very feebly active in or through the temporary personality. This distinction between the higher and the lower Self is a fundamental one, not merely in Theosophy but also in all Mysticism, both philosophical and devotional.” Partial list of Contents: Some Personal & Impersonal Characteristics/ The higher & the Lower Self/ Spiritualism/ The Writing of ‘The Secret Doctrine’/ Appendix – critical analysis of the 1885 SPR Report.
