AP Sinnett

Alfred Percy Sinnett (18 January 1840 in London – 26 June 1921) was an English author and theosophist.

This theory recognizes the evolution of the soul as a process that is quite continuous in itself, though carried out partly through the instrumentality of a great series of dissociated forms. Putting aside for the moment of profound metaphysics of the theory which trace the principle of life from the original first cause of the cosmos, we find the soul as an entity emerging from the animal kingdom, and passing into the earliest human forms, without being at that time ripe for the higher intellectual life with which the present state of humanity renders us familiar.

Incidents in the Life of Madame Blavatsky: compiled from information supplied by her relatives and friends is a book originally published in 1886 in London. It was compiled by a member of the Theosophical Society, A. P. Sinnett, the first biographer of H. P. Blavatsky (née Hahn). He describes the many unusual incidents in her life, beginning from her childhood in Russia and asserts that she has been with "an early connection with the supernatural world;" he says about her short unlucky marriage and "decade of extensive global travels," about her period of learning in Tibet, and the "criticism she received about some of her 'phenomena' and practices.

In 1880, the Founders of the Theosophical Society visited the Sinnetts at their summer home in Simla, the summer capital of India. It was during this visit that most of the phenomena so fully described in The Occult World occurred. Over a period of a few years Alfred Sinnett received letters from highly evolved Adepts living in Tibet, some of which he used to outline esoteric teachings in this, one of the earlier theosophical books.
