10 stories of people having supernatural experiences after dying and then coming back to life.
In response to the demand for further light on the Stanzas of Dzyan which form the basis of The Secret Doctrine, H. P. Blavatsky answered a variety of questions at weekly meetings of the Blavatsky Lodge of The Theosophical Society in London. Her replies illumine many important facets of the teachings such topics as cosmic genesis, universal mind, man’s inner nature, the relation between consciousness and substance, religious symbolism, and the evolution of worlds and men. Of particular interest is a section on dreams.
The discussions were publised in question and answer form in the book called Transactions of the Blavatsky Lodge with some amount of editing.
These Questions and Answers have now been republished word for word from the original transcripts and published as The Secret Doctrine Dialogues.
