The Theosophical Society (est. 1875 in New York by H. P. Blavatsky, H. S. Olcott and others) is increasingly becoming recognized for its influential role in shaping the alternative new religious and cultural landscape of the late nineteenth and the twentieth century, especially as an early promoter of interest in Indian and Tibetan religions and philosophies. Despite this increasing awareness, many of the central questions relating to the early Theosophical Society and the East remain largely unexplored. This book is the first scholarly anthology dedicated to this topic. It offers many new details about the study of Theosophy in the history of modern religions and Western esotericism. The essays in Imagining the East explore how Theosophists during the formative period understood the East and those of its people with whom they came into contact. The authors examine the relationship of the theosophical approach with orientalism and aspects of the history of ideas, politics, and culture at large and discuss how these esoteric or theosophical representations mirrored conditions and values current in nineteenth-century mainstream intellectual culture. The essays also look at how the early Theosophical Society's imagining of the East differed from mainstream 'orientalism' and how the Theosophical Society's mission in India was distinct from that of British colonialism and Christian missionaries.

Guru English is a bold reconceptualization of the scope and meaning of cosmopolitanism, examining the language of South Asian religiosity as it has flourished both inside and outside of its original context for the past two hundred years. The book surveys a specific set of religious vocabularies from South Asia that, Aravamudan argues, launches a different kind of cosmopolitanism into global use. Using "Guru English" as a tagline for the globalizing idiom that has grown up around these religions, Aravamudan traces the diffusion and transformation of South Asian religious discourses as they shuttled between East and West through English-language use. The book demonstrates that cosmopolitanism is not just a secular Western "discourse that results from a disenchantment with religion, but something that can also be refashioned from South Asian religion when these materials are put into dialogue with contemporary social move-ments and literary texts. Aravamudan looks at "religious forms of neoclassicism, nationalism, Romanticism, postmodernism, and nuclear millenarianism, bringing together figures such as Swami Vivekananda, Sri Aurobindo, Mahatma Gandhi, and Deepak Chopra with Rudyard Kipling, James Joyce, Robert Oppenheimer, and Salman Rushdie. Guru English analyzes writers and gurus, literary texts and religious movements, and the political uses of religion alongside the literary expressions of religious teachers, showing the cosmopolitan interconnections between the Indian subcontinent, the British Empire, and the American New Age.

Blavatsky and Her Teachers

Few nineteenth century figures have aroused such controversy as Madame Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831-91), co-founder of The Theosophical Society. Accepted by some as a spiritual teacher, outstanding occultist and pioneer of the present New Age movement, she was denounced by others as an impostor, a secret agent for her native Russia, or a deluded fanatic. In this full-length biography, the first to be published in England for many years, Jean Overton Fuller has used Russian language material, and is the first biography to have had access to the archives of the London Society for Psychical Research. But she has found the explanation for the life and work of Madame Blavatsky, not in New York where The Theosophical Society was founded in 1875, nor in London where she died, but in the attempts of an oriental fraternity to influence the spiritual climate of Europe in its most materialistic phase. She throws new light on the real identities of Madame Blavatsky's teachers, and their relationship to the complex world of Tibetan Buddhism. She portrays a woman struggling against immense personal and social difficulties to fulfil a mission that was scarcely understood by her closest associates. In her impartial scrutiny of evidence, Miss Overton Fuller has been obliged to reject as spurious some 'Blavatsky ' letters published by The Theosophical Society itself, but she has also uncovered the real authorship of the notorious 'Coulomb' letters which attempted to implicate Madame Blavatsky in fraud. The appearance of this biography coincides with the centenary of Madame Blavatskys's main work The Secret Doctrine (1888), which offered a profound spiritual interpretation of evolution, in contrast to Darwinism, and brought a new dimension into western thought.
