Two important statements of Madame H. P. Blavatsky, Co-Founder of the Theosophical Society – one about the Society, its real objects and the purpose and another about the Esoteric School of Theosophy (then called the Esoteric Section of the Theosophical Society) – appear together in this booklet. In addition, there is a valuable introduction by C. Jinarajadasa, fourth president of the Theosophical Society. The contents of this volume is of great interest for all who wish to delve into the historical roots of the Theosophical work, both exoteric and esoteric. Madame Blavatsky states clearly: Let us not forget that Theosophy does not grow in our midst by force and control but by ‘sunshine and brotherliness and the dew of self-oblivion.’ The Founders’ aim was to oppose selfishness of any kind and create a spirit of unity and harmony among men notwithstanding the great diversity of creeds in the world. The Esoteric School exists, as explained, to prepare students for practising Raja-Yoga. It stresses the need to assimilate in daily life the teachings given and to have unselfish motives in seeking knowledge. This book is an imprint of the Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar, and is imported from India.
