While researching the origins of the Stanzas of Dyzan, I came across David Reigle's website and found some very interesting reading here. Specifically the link to Isis.
Eastern Tradition Research Institute Our starting point is the conviction that the once universal but now hidden Wisdom Tradition exists. Our purpose is to trace this lost tradition in its extant sources, primarily the scriptures of the East. This is intended to establish the fact of its existence, and to ascertain more fully and accurately its teachings.
In order to achieve this, we have assembled an extensive archive of primary sources in their original languages. These are the scriptures of ancient India, namely, the Sanskrit, Prakrit, Pali, and Tibetan texts of the Hindu, Jaina, and Buddhist traditions. To facilitate research, we have prepared bibliographic listings of some of these texts, and these listings will be posted on this website.
It is our specific aim to trace the secret "Book of Dzyan" and "Book of the Golden Precepts", the basis of H. P. Blavatsky's books, The Secret Doctrine and The Voice of the Silence. Through these published books Blavatsky made known the existence of the once universal but now hidden Wisdom Tradition. Either these secret books are real, and can therefore eventually be found, or, along with the Wisdom Tradition itself, are merely figments of Blavatsky's imagination.
