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.

Format: Paperback
This book is probably the best substitute for those seekers who want to study the Secret Doctrine but are intimidated by H.P. Blavatsky's own words. G.D. Purucker makes the Doctrine more accessible and intelligible, though I give it only 4* because he is not as plain as I would like a writer to be for a book like this. It is available online so you can check it out before buying. The table of contents is well-organized for easy reference, so you can look up a subject that interests you (the globes, chains, races and rounds, etc.) Don't read it from cover to cover; rather, use it as reference.
"The Fountain-Source of Occultism" is good for not-quite-beginner students of Theosophy. If you are a complete novice, check out "The Ocean of Theosophy" by William Q. Judge and "The Key To Theosophy" by Blavatsky.
