An Outline of the Belief by
One of Its
Offered for Puhlication by
Reader on Bohulf of
The following tract has been of
fered for puhlication as a eotnuiuni
cation, by a reader of the llUM.ivnx
who wishes, in this way, to answer
the olten heard question, "What is
In this age of multitudinous be
liefs religious, philosophic, scien
tiilc, and mystical broad minded
people who are free from prejudice
in favor of any particular belief, arc
at a loss which to accept; and not
being able to accept all, generally
end in accepting none, that is in be
coming agnostics. But the agnostic
position, however free from shackles,
is alter all one of debasement; to
confess one's self ignorant does not
raise one's seli-respect. Neither is
the sentiment of veneration, and oth
ers akin thereto, satislied. Hence an
agnostic, unless he be devoid of such
sentiments, i. e., a moral deformity,
must ever he conscious of an aching
Is there, then, no alternative be
tween being an agnostic and accept
ing one of tlie exclusive forms of be
lief and worship called religions?
Must an earnest and broad-minded
enquirer cither confine his soaring
spirit within tho narrow and restrict
ed limits of a chinch, or else profess
himself an atheist'' Ask Mrs. Isesant
and many otheis who have had this
perplexing question solved for them,
and they will tell you that there is a
system called Theosophy, which will
enable a man to preserve his breadth
of mind without compelling him to
saciilicc his aspirations and venera
tion for the supreme.
WHAT, TULK, Is IIILOiOI'IIY?
Theosophy is a system designed to
reconcile all religions, philosophies,
and sciences under one common sys
tem of ethics based on eternal veri
ties. This is a stock deiiuition ; and
to those who are accustomed to hear
big words used to express small ideas
or to define empty dogmas they may
seem pretentious ; but a little expla
nation will remove this objection.
People may say, "How can all relig
ions be reconciled under one system,
when they are so opposed to one
another in their doctrines?" The
answer is that Theosophy does not
try to reconcile doctrines, since these
are merely the external forms of re
ligions, due to cumulative effect of
differences in the climatic, racial and
intellectual characteristics of the var
ious peoples who profess them.
In days long gone by, before that
event took place which is described
in the Rible as the "Fall of Man",
and is known by Theosophists as the
fall of Spirit into matter, the human
race was moie spiritual and god-like
than at present, and the confusion of
taeesj nations, and creeds did not
exist, for the ctuse of scparatcness
and selfishness had not yet descend
ed, and man was a harmonious
brotherhood. The knowledge of Ood,
of the Universe, of Life, had not be
come degraded to a mere speculation
.is it is at present, when everyone is
at liberty to build up a religion or
philosophy of his own. Neither were
the aspirations of the heait severed
from those of the intellect, and the
science of life 'divided into two
halves Religion and Science as at
the present day. There was one
single system of knowledge, em
bracing all departments' of enquiry,
whether ethical, social, scientific, or
what not, and it lias been called the
W'ISDOM-ltLI.KIION, OK Till; bl'.C'KKT
or the Divine Gnosis. As man be
came more material, selfish, and evil,
it became necessary to keep this
divine knowledge more or less secret,
because it was dangerous to entrust
it to people who might use it for their
own private advantage, instead of
for tho genet al welfare. Hence if
we examine the pages of history we
llnd that it was taught from time to
time, under names similar to the
above, by persons calling themselves
"Hioropliants" or "Initiates", to
small select bodies or schools by
means of ceremonies known us
To mention a few instances, there
were tho Mystenes of Egypt and
Samothrace, Pythagoras and his
school, Plato, the Alexandrian philo
sophers and Neo-Platonists, the Mys
teries known as Eleusinia in Greece,
and tho Yoijh and Adopts of mo
dern India, with their religio-philo-sophical
systems, exoteric and eso
teric. The Wisdom-Religion is taught at
tho present day under the name of
Its teachings are proiuulgnged by
the Theosophii'iil Society, a body
founded for that purpose in 1875,
and numbering ;o-day numerous ad
herents in Britain, America, India,
and oilier countries. In November,
1875, at a meeting of learned and in
fluential persons in Madamo Islavat
sky's house in New York, a Society
was formed with
rin: TiiitKi; avowed oujects;
(1) To form the nucleus of a
Universal Hiotherhood of Humanity,
without distinction of race, creed,
sex, caste, or color.
(2) To promote the study of
Aryan and other Eastern literatures,
religions, and sciences.
(3) To investigate unexplained
laws of Nature and the psychical
powers of man.
Tho leason for the second object
is thai tho East is the present repo
sitory of the Wisdom-Religion. The
reason for the last is that the higher
development of man lies in the
direction of the awakening of the
powers and faculties of his soul and
spirit, and the knowledge of the
pianos of Nature upon which these
Tho two heads of the Society were
Col. Oleolt, an American gentleman
of considerable experience of the
world, and Madame Blavat3ky, a Rus
sian lady whoso checkered and ro
mnntio life nnd passion for tho mys
tic require a separate article. The
early years of the Society were spent
in India, arousing the Hindoos to the
knowledge of the esoteric truths of
their own religion. Tlioy had neg
lected the true sources of knowledge
and degenerated into formalism and
external worship ; but U1C3' respond
ed eagerly to the call to study their
religion esoterically, and many nuclei
of the Theosophical Society weie
formed in India and Ceylon. Later,
in 1881, they came to Europe and
founded centres in several countries,
nnd in 1887 Madame Rlavalsky took
up her residence in London, the
journal Lucifer was started in Eng
land and The Path in America, and
the Society swelled to its present di
mensions, which include over 2C5
Blanches in India, America, Britain,
and other countries.
Till: OlIILT TLACIIINT.S OK THEOSOPHY
are as follows :
(1) The Universe is not an aggre
gation of separate parts, but is one
whole, and this whole or sum-total
of all that exists is Deity. Thus our
God is not a personality ; it is the
sum-total ol all stales of conscious
ness and all forms of manifestation,
or in other words the ultimate spiiit-
ual basis of the Universe. I his
Deity (Pjiru-Bruhvi) exists alter
nately in a slate of rest and
a state of activity. In the form
er state the whole universe is
unmanifested and, so to sav, asleep;
in the latter state the Deity assumes
a creative power and the Universe is
evolved according to philosophical
principles too al)3truse to enter into
here. Both these states last billions
of years, aud the latter one prevails
of course now.
(2) Man consists mainly of two
parts, a spiritual part which is a
spark from Deity and is "made in
the image of God," and a lower part
which is animal and of the world.
The divine part, or Higher Ego, is in
its original state good from want of
lower to commit evil ; ii is part of
tiie divine scheme of evolution that
it should aequiie expeiience, or the
knowledge of good and evil, so as to
perfect its nature ; therefore it lias
to pass through a long series of in
carnations on ejirlh, during which it
at first inevitably goes astray, but ul
timately conquers sin and matter and
reassuiues its divine state of purity.
(3) Our present earth-life is only
one of a long series of similar ones
undergone by ouf Higher Ego in ac
cordance witli the above law. The
conditions of wealth, station, and
happiness in which we are born in
any given life or incarnation are
regulated by a law known as the
law of Karma, or merit. This may
be described as the law of
CAUSI'. AND KFFP.C'T IN' Till. VOKAI.
and provides that sins bring their own
punishment and virtues their own re
ward, not accouling to the decision
of a personal God, but as a matter
of necessity and iucvitableness, so
thai a man who bleaks nature's laws
in one lite incurs the penalty either
in that same life or a subsequent one,
just as a drunkard gets a headache
next morning. It will be seen that
this law accounts for the differences
in worldly condition which must oth
erwise be put down to the caprice of
a personal Deity, teaches us self
reliance, and does away with the doc
trine of eternal punishment.
(1) The present stage of human
development is a comparatively low
one, and man is destined to evolve
higher and higher till lie reaches that
state of divine manhood which is his
ultimate goal and which we see ex
emplified in Jesus. We have achieved
wonderful power over the material
world, but there are higher worlds
than this. The body functions on the
physical plane, the soul on the psychic
plane, and the spiritual on the spirit
ual plane. Life on these planes is
much fuller and involves the posses
sion if tar higher powers and facul
ties than we at present possess.
Practical Theosophy teaches how
to cultivate our higher nature, and
transfer our consciousness and power
of action to the corresponding planes.
But the road to power lies only tliro-igh
renunciation ot self and woildly at
tractions, and is usually tho work ol
many Incarnations, Some great souls
havo outstripped the run of humanity
and risen to these heights ot devel
opment; they have formed tho Initi
ates, Adepts, and title Magi ol all
ages, and they preserve the knowl
edge of the Secret Doctrine on earth.
Tho present oues are the
AIHU'TS OH MAIIATMAS 01' 'IIIIItf.T,
so often heard of in Theosophical
literature, but so much misunder
stood. They are tho spiritual power
at the baclc of the present Theosoph
ical Society, and Madamo Blavalsky
was their disciple and direct agent.

latter case I used Chamberlain's

considerable success, only being in

ten days for the first attack. The
second attack I am satisfied would
have been equally as bad as the first
