This volume is of great interest for all, who wish to delve into the historical roots of the Theosophical work, both exoteric and esoteric. The programme of the Theosophical Society is mentioned in an article written by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 - 1891) in 1886:

  1. Universal Brotherhood;
  2. No distinction to be made by the member between races, creeds, or social positions, but every member had to be judged and dealt by on his personal merits;
  3. To study the philosophies of the East -- those of India chiefly, presenting them gradually to the public in various works that would interpret exoteric religions in the light of esoteric teachings;
  4. To oppose materialism and theological dogmatism in every possible way, by demonstrating the existence of occult forces unknown to science, in nature, and the presence of psychic and spiritual powers in man; trying, at the same time to enlarge the views of the Spiritualists by showing them that there are other, many other agencies at work in the production of phenomena besides the "Spirits" of the dead. Superstition had to be exposed and avoided; and occult forces, beneficent and maleficent -- ever surrounding us and manifesting their presence in various ways -- demonstrated to the best of our ability.


Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831-1891) was born of a noble family in Russia. She became a student of metaphysical lore, and traveled to many lands, including Tibet, in search of hidden knowledge. In the 1870s she went to New York and, with Col. Henry S. Olcott and others, formed the Theosophical Society, an organization dedicated to: - Fellowship among all peoples of the world - Encouragement of the comparative study of religion, philosophy, and science - Investigation of the unexplained powers and forces at work in nature and in humankind.
