About the Ego and the Unmanifested Being
There is no Period When
Equilibrium in Life is Absolute
Visconde de Figanière
Visconde, or Viscount, de Figanière (1827-1908) and Helena Blavatsky
A 2020 Editorial Note:
The following article is transcribed from “Lucifer” magazine, February 1890 edition, pages 471-480. The word “Lucifer” is a pre-Christian, Latin term meaning “light-bringer”. The word refers to the planet Venus, the morning star, the “elder sister” of our Earth, and has been grossly distorted by ill-advised theologians. See the articles “Lucifer: What’s In a Name?” and “The History of a Planet: Venus”.
Longer paragraphs of the article have been divided into shorter ones, so as to make a contemplative reading easier. Two of the footnotes to the article were written by Helena Blavatsky, the editor of the magazine.
Author of various valuable books, V. de Figanière (1827-1908) was a friend of H. P. Blavatsky and a member of her Esoteric School. During the 1870s, being the diplomatic representative of Portugal in Russia – envoy and minister plenipotentiary – , he lived in Saint Petersburg in a house which belonged to her family.
