Esoteric Life consists of trying to live ethically, find yourself, and grow in self-knowledge. The stages on this path can be found on this site. For instance, all about general practical wisdom and occultism. Or find out all about chelas (or disciples) and Mahatmas (their gurus, masters or the adepts).
In the Prologue, all the sources can be found for the quotes and articles that are found here. That is, all the abbreviations used for the sources, are explained there. Theosophical Metaphysics, are essential to understanding theosophy and much of what can be found in the Esoteric Studies Guide. I have given my own comments on all the subjects discussed here - at the relevant place, but not to lose your way, you can also find them at Katinka's Comments.
Unless otherwise mentioned, the articles and quotes on this page are from H.P. Blavatsky, one of the founders of the modern theosophical movement. The rest are from writers who were her co-workers and contemporaries in the nineteenth century. Included is what H.P. Blavatsky and her co-workers thought about the Theosophical Society, The Esoteric Section and some miscellaneous material.
