Description : This study introduces the student to the Seven Stanzas translated from Book of Dzyan, the foundations for H P Blavatsky's exposition of Cosmic Evolution -- the coming into being of the Universe -- in her great work The Secret Doctrine. Blavatsky therein states that these Stanzas are presented "in their modern translated version, as it would be worse than useless to make the subject still more difficult by introducing the archaic phraseology of the original, with its puzzling style and words." The notes here are presented not as a formal study but as a stimulus to the student to pursue his own reflection on this deeply mystical and intriguing subject.
Description : This is a companion volume to and, in fact, a continuation of, Man, the Measure of All Things, by the same author (with the late Sri Krishna Prem), which dealt with the Stanzas of Dzyan relating to Cosmogenesis as set forth in H.P. Blavatsky's great work, The Secret Doctrine. Man, Son of Man is a commentary of further Stanzas of Dzyan outlining the processes of human evolution which have culminated in man as he is today. What we believe about our origins determines what we believe about our destiny, says the author, and he approaches his subject with the same depth of insight, the same sanity and balance, that characterized the previous work.
Description : This is the content of The Book of Dzyan, separately channeled through H.P. Blavatsky and Alice Bailey from the Tibetan master Djwhal Khul.

It belongs to a group of Tibetan writings known as the Books of Kiu-Te, and is translated from ancient Sanskrit and Tibetan.
