Founder of the modern Theosophical Movement, Madame Blavatsky has always been a subject of controversy. An outstanding spiritual teacher and occultist, this recent biography uses Russian language material and the archives of the Society for Psychical Research. The author finds the explanation for the life and work of Madame Blavatsky in the attempts of an oriental fraternity to influence the spiritual climate of Europe in its most materialistic phase, throwing new light on the identities of Blavatsky’s teachers and their relationship to the world of Tibetan Buddhism. An impartial review of the evidence, the author even rejects as spurious some ‘Blavatsky’ letters published by the Theosophical Society itself.
