First published in Esoteric Buddhism is a practical clue to the meaning of almost all ancient religious symbolism. Buddhosm says that the esoteric doctrine gives an absolute truth. He further states that the European mindset has so long been accustomed to questioning that is it impossible to deal with absolute truths. In proportion as Buddhism retreats into the inner penetralia of its faith, these are found to merge into the inner penetralia of other faiths.
The cosmic conceptions, and the knowledge of Nature on which Buddhism not merely rests, but which constitute esoteric Buddhism, equally constitute esoteric Brahmanism. Paperbackpages.

I wrote an blog post related to a quote in this book here: Sinnett writes in a very captivating way, and he provides us This is definitely one of the best books on esoteric philosophy I’ve read. Sinnett writes in a very captivating way, and he provides us with so much information that goes to the cusp of human knowledge and intuition.
He relates the Buddhist ideas from Masters he has studied with in the East and also shows how they relate to other philosophies, religion, and science. I also like how Sinnett isn’t shy from saying how he thinks many other ideas are simply wrong! This book certainly brings to light many details about Buddhism not explained in popular “exoteric” accounts, making it much more understandable and relateable to other traditions such as Neoplatonism.
