At the end of her life, H.P. Blavatsky wrote a series of Instructions for the students of her newly formed Esoteric School where she gave material that could not be made public at the time. These Instructions, which represent the last extended project accomplished during her lifetime, contain information not included in Blavatsky's other writings and hold together as some of her best work. The present book is an authentic reproduction of what she provided her esoteric students and offers the reader practical instruction in esoteric principles. This edition of HPB's Esoteric Instructions has the added benefit of an Appendix containing related matter that the editor, Michael Gomes, has found relevant to the subject. H.P.Blavatsky (1831-1891), considered by many the greatest occultist of the West , was an outstanding messenger who presented the Ancient Wisdom for the modern age. Scion of a Russian aristocratic family, from childhood she displayed remarkable psychic gifts, artistic and literary talents and intellectual accomplishments. Widely travelled the world over and seasoned by extraordinary adventures, she was well prepared by her Teachers to redeem humanity from the enveloping darkness of materialism. Her great achievements were twofold; founding, jointly with a distinguished American, Col. H.S. Olcott, the Theosophical Society in 1875; and writing on a prodigious scale spiritual and occult literature which entitled her to be known as 'the Light Bringer'.
