In a presentation of the 133rd Summer National Convention of the Theosophical Society in America, Elena Dovalsantos will explore how The Secret Doctrine brought to humanity the knowledge that has been in the possession of seers throughout the ages. Among its most important teachings are the principles of the oneness of all life and the full realization of that oneness which is the purpose of the human journey. These are truths that can set us free from the causes of suffering and misery to bring us to perfect peace and fulfillment. What are the implications of these key teachings of the occult philosophy, which, according to HP Blavatsky, is the science of life, the art of living? Can we use the fire of understanding to lift ourselves and humanity from the bondage of physical existence?
