Madame Helena Blavatsky

Helena Blavatsky was born in Russia in 1831. Her father was a soldier in the Russian army and her mother was novelist. The first real love affair Helena claimed was with Prince Alexander Galistin. But unfortunately her marriage happened with General Nicephore Blavatsky, who was twice her age. After three month she escaped and get away from him traveled to Tibet, studying with the Lama. She was in India in 1856.

Helena Blavatsky’s appeal wasn’t limited. Then she found herself romantically involved with an Estonian spiritualist named Nicholas Meyendorff and a opera singer Agardi Metrovich. In consequence of that love she gave birth of a baby boy named Yuri. No one came to claim the father of child. Helena took him to Spain to his medical treatment but unfortunately Yuri didn’t survive that trip. Yuri’s death put a huge impact on her. After the death of her child ‘Yuri’ she wrote that Russian Orthodox God had died for her on the day of her Child’s death. Then she traveled to Odessa, to Egypt, to Paris where she heard about the spiritualist movement in U.S.A. She arrived in New York in July 1873.

Her relationship with Colonel Olcott blossomed into the establishment of the Theosophical Society in September 1875. It was Helena Blavatsky and Colonel Henry Olcott that the Theosophical Society is still alive.

Theosophical society basically formed to study Egyptian mysteries, Science, spiritualism and other related fields. Theosophical society basically was and is; a nondenominational and no dogmatic only for cultural understanding between Eastern and Western philosophies, religions and sciences.
