The concept of Deva-Man is both intriguing and immense; intriguing, because much of it still remains a mystery and what information is available is often carefully veiled; immense, because it appertains to the whole of man and to his relationship with nature and the Universe. [...] What does 'deva' mean? The word is derived from the Sanskrit meaning 'to shine' - hence the 'shining ones', the 'resplendent ones'. But the term is used very loosely and in Hindu Scriptures, for instance, may refer to all life which is invisible. It is suggested too, that devic life is the sum total of of substance itself, the basis of all manifestation, or, in other words, Spirit-Matter. It refers to a whole range of life that is evolving 'pari passu' with the human.

From page x:

" If we will but scan the records of history, legend and myth we can see the parts, which they played in the childhood of the race. We find records of these angelic beings, and their connection with man, in all the sacred scriptures of the world . . . "

" In the future, they will definitely take in charge the guidance of man's evolution along special lines, and will constantly aid and instruct him. " - From: Theos. Vol. 40, p. 186).
