Overview Walter Methven is an indolent young man of twenty-four. To the despair of his widowed mother, he prefers a circle of friends led by the shifty Captain Underwood to the regular pleasant society of their town. It is known that Walter is a distant relation of the Scottish Lord Erradeen; but it comes as a shock to him and his mother to learn that due to several deaths in the family, he has succeeded to the title.
He vows to put aside his aimless past and do some real good in his new position. Walter travels to Edinburgh to meet his solicitor, and learns that one of the conditions of bearing the title is to spend several days each year on Loch Houran in the West Highlands, at the ancient castle of Kinloch Houran.

English and Tibetan terms identified. Esoteric New Age. Blavatsky 3 vols Hardcover or Paperback 2 Vol. Set facsimile of the original with 3rd Volume Van Mater Index Continuously in print for over years, the SD remains today the most comprehensive sourcebook of the esoteric tradition, outlining the fundamental tenets of the "Secret Doctrine of the Archaic Ages. From the Preface - " The aim of this work may be thus stated: to show that Nature is not 'a fortuitous concurrence of atoms,' and to assign to man his rightful place in the scheme of the Universe; to rescue from degradation the archaic truths which are the basis of all religions; and to uncover, to some extent, the fundamental unity from which they all spring.
Supplementary sections discuss relevant scientific issues as well as the mystery language of myths, symbols, and allegories, helping the reader decipher the often abstruse imagery of the world's sacred literature.

Occultism from the Latin occultus, meaning "hid" as presented here refers primarily to the esoteric theosophy concealed in religion and nature.
In this series of articles, Blavatsky clarifies the "essential difference between theoretical and practical Occultism," and the gulf that separates harmful occult practices from the occult path of altruism. Derived from the Latin 'occultus' meaning 'hidden,' it properly defines anything which is undisclosed, concealed, or not easily perceived. Early theologians, for example, spoke of "the occult judgment of God," while "occult philosopher" was a designation for the pre-Renaissance scientist who sought the unseen causes regulating nature's phenomena. In astronomy, the term is still used when one stellar body 'occults' another by passing in front of it, temporarily hiding it from view.
Occultism is founded on the principle that Divinity is concealed - transcendent yet immanent -- within every living being. As a spiritual discipline occultism is the renunciation of selfishness; it is the "still small path" which leads to wisdom, to the right discrimination between good and evil, and the practice of altruism. An essay by Kirby Van Mater provides the setting in theosophical history.

Blavatsky and her lifework. Blavatsky's first major literary effort, a critical response to the growing materialism in both scientific and religious institutions, is a vindication of the ageless quest.
