The Fire and Light of Theosophical Literature examines the contrast between truth and illusion in the teachings of modern esoteric philosophy, and points to a bright future. The author discusses the probationary struggle taking place in the soul of the movement founded by Helena Blavatsky. With 28 Chapters, the volume is divided in three parts. The first one examines the premises and the general context of the living contrast between wisdom and dead letter in the human mind and the esoteric movement. The second part makes a direct examination of the fraud and the mistakes even now present in much of the literature that is nominally theosophical; and shows how the movement has been slowly getting rid of the illusions created in the 1894-1934 period. The third and final part discusses the future of the theosophical movement and its blissful duty regarding humanity. It investigates the next steps in human evolution, which - according to Theosophy - will be more and more enlightened by the universal wisdom.
