The Secret Doctrine: Cosmogenesis by Helena Blavatsky is the first volume in a 3 volume set of books dealing with Theosophy and occult ideas. In this volume, the author sets out her views on the origin of the universe, and of evolution. Blavatsky uses the Hindu concept of cosmology as she attempts to show that the discoveries of science had been previously predicted by ancient texts. The book is split into 3 parts: Part 1. Cosmic Evolution, which includes the 'Seven Stanzas From The Book Of Dzyan' as well as commentaries on them. Part 2. The Evolution Of Symbolism, which includes the chapters; Symbolism and Ideographs; The Mystery Language and Its Keys; Primordial Substance and Divine Thought; Chaos: Theos: Kosmos; On the Hidden Deity, Its Symbols and Glyphs; The Mundane Egg, and more. Part 3. On Occult And Modern Science which includes the chapters: The Solar Theory; Forces—Modes of Motion or Intelligences; Gods, Monads and Atoms, and more.
