Helena Petrovich Blavatsky or H.P.B. as she was often called or referred, to in writings, was a fascinating and controversial person who is considered 'a great occultist' with worldwife influence. Her writings and books continue to intrigue curious minds and serve as a source for occult and esoteric knowledge and wisdom and sometimes practice. In this blog, I hope to discuss my particular views and experiences,from youth to the present, about what has been described as THEOSOPHY and The Theosophical Movement and also to discuss views of both her most ardent follwers and her most critical detractors. The life of Madame Blavatsky(her married name) is as colorful as those of other occultists,such as, Gurdjieff(who will be discussed in relation to Madame Blavatsky) and Crowley, as well as others. Offshoots of her initial groups will also be discussed and considered if time and interest permits me to do so.
