New on TUP Online
"The Secret Doctrine" by H. P. Blavatsky (1st installment)
"Studies in Occult Philosophy" by G. de Purucker

Theosophical University Press Online (
has uploaded the first installment of its electronic edition of "The Secret
Doctrine" -- Volume 1, Book 1 (vol. 1 to page 300).  The other 5 books
which comprise the 2 volumes will be added as they are ready.  This
full-text version is verbatim with the facsimile edition of 1888, except
for minor changes, such as those noted below, and the correction of obvious
typographical errors such as dropped letters.  In html, it retains
page-breaks so that researchers can find material referred to by page in
other sources.  Differences from the print version include: removing all
diacritical marks (for ease in searching); using multiple asterisks instead
of daggers, etc., to mark footnotes; and transliterating Greek characters
into Latin italics (Hebrew characters appear as pictures inserted in the
text).  Please send any comments or suggestions about formatting, errors,
or other technical matters to

Also recently added to the TUP Online site is G. de Purucker's "Studies in
Occult Philosophy," 760 print-pages of short articles, answers to
questions, and remarks at study-groups on "The Secret Doctrine" and "The
Mahatma Letters."  Published posthumously, it covers a very wide range of
topics, from technical theosophical teachings to human problems.  It is
particularly useful in conjunction with the on-site search engine. -- Sarah
