Helena Petrovna Blavatsky ( Russian : Еле́на Петро́вна Блава́тская , Ukrainian : Олена Петрівна Блаватська ), (born as Helena von Hahn ( Russian : Елена Петровна Ган , Ukrainian : Олена Петрівна Ган ); 12 August [ O.S. 31 July] 1831 – 8 May 1891) was a Russian occultist author and an amateur scholar of ancient wisdom literature . In 1875, Blavatsky and Olcott established a research and publishing institute called the Theosophical Society . Blavatsky defined Theosophy as "the archaic Wisdom-Religion, the esoteric doctrine once known in every ancient country having claims to civilization." [ 1 ] One of the main purposes of the Theosophical Society was “to form a nucleus of the Universal Brotherhood of Humanity, without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or color” . [ 2 ] Blavatsky saw herself as a missionary of this ancient knowledge.
The Tree of Life , or Etz haChayim (עץ החיים) in Hebrew , is a classic descriptive term for the central mystical symbol used in the Kabbalah of esoteric Judaism , also known as the 10 Sephirot . The symbolic configuration of 10 spiritual principles (11 can be shown, of which - Keter and Da'at are interchangable), arranged in 3 columns/pillars, describes the manner in which God creates existence ex nihilo , the nature of revealed divinity, the human soul, and the spiritual path of ascent by man.
For the band, see Dååth . Da'at or Daas ("Knowledge", Hebrew : דעת [ˈdaʕaθ] ) in Jewish mysticism , called Kabbalah , is the location (the mystical state) where all ten sephirot in the Tree of Life are united as one. Da'at
Sephirot or Səphîrôṯ ( pron.: / ˈ s ɛ f ɪr ɒ θ / ; Hebrew : סְפִירוֹת , pronunciation ), meaning emanations , are the 10 attributes/emanations in Kabbalah , through which Ein Sof (The Infinite) reveals himself and continuously creates both the physical realm and the chain of higher metaphysical realms ( Seder hishtalshelus ). The term is alternatively transliterated into English as Sefirot/Sefiroth , singular Sephirah/Sefirah etc. Alternative configurations of the sephirot are given by different schools in the historical development of Kabbalah, with each articulating different spiritual aspects.
