The Secret Doctrine is one of the more difficult Theosophical books to read. Yet since its initial publication in 1888, it has continued to challenge the minds of new generations of Theosophists for it seemingly contains an inexhaustible source of esoteric knowledge. In this program, Mary Anderson explores The Three Fundamental propositions found in the Proem of The Secret Doctrine and then offers some suggestions as to their practical application in daily life. 1994. 200 minutes.
