The Book of Secret Wisdom by Zinovia Dushkova is a translation of the most ancient book of our time, known as the Book of Dzyan — a Tibetan name meaning the Book of Secret Wisdom. This book, which is from the beginnings of the evolution of present humanity, starts with The Genesis of Divine Love, in which the gods' work of rotating the Stellar Wheel starts. As the wheel gains momentum, wonderful changes happen in the world, yielding The Knowledge of the Heart, The Gift of Love, The Gift of Mind and all other loving forces, including The Birth of Gods, that are to control the world. To make comprehension easy, a rather detailed explanation is included of all terms, both of Western romanticism and Eastern religious concepts which might appear in connection with the philosophical thoughts expressed here.
The Book of Secret Wisdom by Zinovia Dushkova is not an easy book to translate. Difficulty in grasping content, which is true for any topic when dealt with deeply and more so for ideas like this and even more for Eastern thought, can be encountered here. Zinovia has certainly kept this in mind while preparing her book. For better appreciation of the ideas presented in this book, mostly belonging to Eastern philosophy and thought, the words used and their contextual meanings are included, and that is a great help. It puts the ultimate power to control human destiny in the hands of love. “Even if obliged to take a loving step backwards yesterday, Love will take two steps forward tomorrow, and man will enter into the Kingdom of Light, nevermore again to lose it in his Heart.”
