Every branch of study has its special terminology, and theosophy is no exception. Originally published in London in 1933, this Glossary defines some 300 terms frequently found in the field of metaphysics and explains them in the light of theosophy. An invaluable textbook for the student, the Glossary is a succinct and reliable aid in discerning the occult or 'hidden' meaning of many Sanskrit, Greek, and technical terms used in theosophical literature.

About the Author:

G. de Purucker was born on January 15, 1874, at Suffern, New York, son of an Anglican minister. In preparation for the ministry he specialized in Hebrew, Latin, Greek, and the writings of the early Church Fathers. However, study of Eastern philosophies and Sanskrit led him to theosophy with its broad comprehension of religion, philosophy, and science. After working closely with Katherine Tingley, he succeeded her as head of The Theosophical Society from 1929 until his death on September 27, 1942. Perhaps his greatest contribution to spiritual thought was his elucidation of the writings of H. P. Blavatsky.
