About the Book

This book was published in 1883 and probably constituted the earliest sketch of esoteric teachings given in plain language. 'Karma' and 'Reincarnation' and other such terms, almost unknown in the West, thereafter came to be used in literary and theological circles. The author candidly acknowledges that it was the 'favour' (of the Adepts) rather than 'effort' on his part that helped the writing of the book. He received teachings from great Spiritual Teachers or Mahatmas through Madame Blavatsky. The book gives occult details concerning the Universe and its planets, going beyond the material world. Along with The Occult World, which preceded, and The Growth of the Soul, which followed it, the present book is a study as envisaged in the Third Object of the Theosophical Society, To investigate unexplained laws of Nature and the powers latent in man'. The title is somewhat misleading as the book does not refer directly to the teachings given by the Buddha.

About the Author

The name of Mr A. P. Sinnett (1840-1921) will always be held in high esteem in the annals of Theosophy. He was the first person to give a broad outline of what the Ancient Wisdom teaches about God, Nature and Man. He used his knowledge to awaken the West to Theosophy and India to national life.

He was educated in London and took up journalism as a career. He served the London newspaper The Globe, The Hong Kong Daily Press in China, The Standard in London, and in 1872 he became the editor of The Pioneer, a leading English newspaper in India. He was greatly attracted by the occult phenomena produced by H. P. Blavatsky and joined the Theosophical Society in 1879. Soon after, he began to receive letters from the Mahatmas. He served as Vice-President of the Theosophical Society three times. He was a man of wide-ranging interests. A keen student of chemistry, he had a laboratory of his own. Besides the famous book The Occult World, he wrote novels and plays based on Theosophy. The novel Karma was very well received, as also his play: Marriage
