Profound and heavy read.,
This review is from: Isis Unveiled: Secret of the Ancient Wisdom Tradition - Madame Blavatsky's First Work (Paperback)
This is a modern day adaptation of Blavatsky's landmark book of the same name and is designed to make Blavatsky's language rather more palatable to the modern reader. She was the founder of the Theosophical Society and the original version of this book is a kind of bible to that group. It is a tour de force and thoroughly engrossing and is certainly quite a heavy read. However I found that taking it in digestible portions was an excellent way to read it as every page is so stuffed full of fascinating information that they cannot readily be speed read or skimmed.
A rewarding book and thoroughly worth the time spent for those interested in the secrets behind alchemical principles and secret codes that were often only for the eyes of those elite few that were the chief religious interpreters of the past.
