Madame Helena Blavatsky, in two introductory essays, offers students of Theosophical beliefs a wide-reaching and worldly outlook on the Ancient Mysteries. While demonstrating that much like Rosicrucian and Masonic philosophy, Theosophy has, at the heart of its doctrine, the concept of a Universal Brotherhood, she by no means forgets to include numerous Eastern influences, which help set apart the distinctive path of Theosophy, from other arenas of esoteric study, while at the same time giving numerous examples of personal expression and choices, within our collective, spiritual interests.

"Where's the rest? "
Somehow I'd expected more. This is a very basic introduction. Would be helpful to someone who didn't know anything at all about Theosophy, to help distinguish it from what it isn't. But so much has happened with Theosophy since Ms. Blavatsky's time, that an introduction would need to place it more historically. I could see this as an introduction to a book of much later essays by other, more recent, writers. Perhaps it has served as this. I do wish audio books had more front matter . . .
"A Good overview"
Easy to listen.
Not over the top. Covers some good grounds.
"Enjoyed Blavatsky viewpoints"
Understanding what and where Theosophy believes. Very interesting since her name is well known and prevalent in these circles.
