This theory recognizes the evolution of the soul as a process that is quite continuous in itself, though carried out partly through the instrumentality of a great series of dissociated forms.
Putting aside for the moment of profound metaphysics of the theory which trace the esoferic of life from the original first cause of the cosmos, we find the soul as an entity emerging from sinnegt animal kingdom, and passing into the earliest human forms, without being at that time ripe for the higher intellectual life with which the present state of humanity renders us familiar. But through successive incarnations in forms whose physical improvement, under the Darwinian law, is constantly fitting them to be its habitation at each return to objective life, it gradually gathers that enormous buddhisj of experience which is summed up in its higher development.
In the intervals between its physical incarnations it prolongs and works out, and finally exhausts or transmutes into so much abstract development, the personal experiences of each life. This is the clue to the true explanation of that apparent difficulty which slnnett the cruder form of the theory of reincarnation which independent speculation has sometimes thrown out. Each man is unconscious of having led previous lives, therefore he contends that subsequent lives can afford him no compensation for this one.

It’s fine, with the usual imperfections of the format but nothing serious. Sinnett was not an initiate. He was writing what he had been given. There are also errors, such as Buddha being a 6th-rounder and mistakes about the particulars of the planetary chain — but so what? This, in many ways, is the Book That Started It All with regard to the west getting a look at the occult lore of the east.
Anyone with an interest in budddhism formerly hidden knowledge that underpins all major religions MUST read this. Blavatsky corrects Sinnett’s errors in her Secret Doctrine the book to read after this one.
Esoteric Buddhism by Alfred Percy Sinnett
She is a terrible writer, but her message is indispensable. He corrects Blavatsky’s bigoted ideas about Christ and is much clearer on the whole subject of the ancient hidden knowledge. Go to him after the Secret Doctrine and read everything he has ever written and all his lecture transcriptions. The material contained siinnett the book is an easy read for the most part.
It contains many highlights of Occult knowledge in a single book, whereas most of these highlights are scattered throughout different books of other eskteric with an exception of a few. However, there are 2 major issues that I found about this book: Some pages could not be read at all being “photo-copied” from old books. Some pages contained pencil eaoteric and different marks on the sidelines as well as inside the content itself.
Despite the shortcomings the books is a esoterjc have for students of theosophy or for a mind looking for understanding of the world and our place in it.
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. As the first review said, the author is NOT an buddihsm into higher or esoteric knowledge himself and makes several mistakes as well as blatantly calling other religions wrong and incapable of offering any sort of true salvation or enlightenment.
I feel that whoever entrusted these “esoteric” teachings to the author made a gross misjudgement, but the book is not all bad. For a non initiate however, who buddhim not developed the inner ability to discern what is essential in spiritual literature from what is non essential, this book can be misleading. I will now refer you to Joseph Campbells works that teach how to “extract the elementary or universal” truths from all religions and mythologies.
Not exactly my cup of tea but written well. Certainly not for the beginning seeker. Would recommend f or advanced Buddhist readers. This was a really challenging read.
It developed a lot of thoughts inside of me and was a very intelligent work. I highly recommend this book. This book is greatly influential and worth a read!! An excellent book for those interested in the occult, ancient continents and pre-historic peoples and civilizations. Though this book teaches much on esoteric Buddhism it is also a great primer on the core thoughts of Theosophy.
A must read for anyone interested in the occult. Information was valuable from a historic perspective. Easy reading and can be read sinnett independent chapters. I would recommend this book.
