May 8, 1991 marks the centenary of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky's death. In commemoration of this event The Esoteric She has been compiled from the writings of William Q. Judge. This compilation presents a unique collection of Judge's articles on Blavatsky's life, work and writings. Judge tells of his first contact with Madame Blavatsky and of his subsequent involvement and work with Blavatksy. He also defends her against several of her critics.

Judge's position as one of the three chief founders of The Theosophical Society gives this Volume a distinct perspective. Hopefully, the reader will gain a greater understanding of Blavatsky's life-work as well as a greater appreciation of Judge's contribution to the Theosophical Cause. For a biographical sketch Mr. Judge and a list of his writings, the reader is referred to William Quan Judge: His Life and Work: compiled and edited by Sven Eek and Boris de Zirkoff, in Echoes of the Orient, (Volume I, pp. xix-lviii), published by Point Loma Publications in 1975.

From Chapter 17 - 'Conversations on Occultism with H.P.B.' (p. 100):

" Look here; here's a man, who wants to know why the Master's don't interpose at once and save his business. They don't seem to remember what it means for a Master to use occult force. If you explode gunpowder to split a rock, you may knock down a house. There is a law that if a White Magician uses his occult power an equal amount of power may be used by the Black One. Chemists invent powders for explosives and wicked men may use them. You force yourself into Master's presence and you take the consequences of the immense forces around him playing on yourself. If you are weak in character anywhere, the Black Ones will use the disturbance by directing the forces engendered to that spot and may compass your ruin. It is so always. Pass the boundary that hedges in the occult realm, and quick forces, new ones, dreadful ones, must be met.  Then, if you are not strong, you may become a wreck for that life. This is the danger. This is one reason, why Masters do not appear and do not act directly very often, but nearly always by intermediate degrees. What do you say - 'the dual forces in nature'? Precisely, that's just it; and Theosophists should remember it. "
