Hello Dee,

You might find the following suggested
reading helpful in understanding H.P. Blavatsky
and Theosophy.

Two online articles that give you a concise
overview of Theosophy are as follows:

A Brief Overview of Theosophy

Basic Ideas of Theosophy

For one good book giving an overview of
Theosophy as given by HPB and the Mahatmas,


And for more introductory material see:

Recommended Titles about H.P.B., the Mahatmas & Theosophy

If you have any specific questions let me know
and I'm sure other people on this list can
offer suggestions.
