A cofounder in 1875 of the Theosophical Society and its principal catalyst and intellectual force, Helena Blavatsky has had perhaps a greater influence than any other single person on modern occultism and alternative spirituality. Born Helena de Hahn of an aristocratic Russian family, she married Nikofor Blavatsky in 1848 but soon left him to travel widely. While the details of her wandering years are not entirely clear, it is evident that she augmented natural psychic and spiritualist interests with much esoteric lore. In 1874 Blavatsky came to New York, where she met Henry Steel Olcott, who became the first president of the Theosophical Society upon its establishment in the following year as a vehicle for the study of arcane wisdom and the promotion of human brotherhood. In 1877 Blavatsky published her first book Isis Unveiled. In 1878-79, she and Olcott moved to India, where the new movement met with both success and controversy. Returning to Europe, she settled in London in 1887, where her major work The Secret Doctrine was published in 1888. Combining shamanistic, Hindu, Buddhist, Neoplatonist, and Cabalistic lore to reconstruct what she considered to be the primordial human wisdom, Blavatsky forcefully engaged its concepts with those of the science and religion of her day. p A woman of independent and colorful character, Blavatsky evoked strong responses, both positive and negative, and left a permanent legacy whose influence on modern cultural movements in both India and the West is increasingly recognized. Blavatsky died in 1891.

The Diamond sutra
The convocation of the assembly
Subhuti makes a request
The real teaching of the great way
Even the most beneficent practices are relative
Understanding the ultimate principle of reality
Rare is true faith
Great ones, perfect beyond learning, utter no words of teaching
The fruits of meritorious action
Real designation is undesignate
Setting forth pure lands
The superiority of unformulated truth
Veneration of the true doctrine
How this teaching should be received and retained
Perfect peace lies in freedom from characteristic distinctions
The incomparable value of this teaching
Purgation through suffering the retribution for past sins
No one attains transcendental wisdom
All modes of mind are really only mind
Absolute reality is the only foundation
The unreality of phenomenal distinctions
Words cannot express truth; that which words express is not truth
It cannot be said that anything is attainable
The practice of good works purifies the mind
The incomparable merit of this teaching
The illusion of ego
The body of truth has no marks
It is erroneous to affirm that all things are ever extinguished
Attachment to rewards of merit
Perfect tranquillity
The integral principle
Conventional truth should be cut off
The delusion of appearances
The sutra of Hui-Neng
On Prajna
Questions and answers
Samadhi and Prajna
On repentance
Temperament and circumstances
The sudden school and the gradual school
