Theosophical Articles and Notes

 

These articles come from a variety of sources, and are presented here for their intrinsic worth.

Internal evidence strongly suggests that some of them have an “adept” origin, and they are so presented.

One or two articles unintentionally omitted from Theosophical Articles by H. P. Blavatsky and William Q. Judge are included.

There is material by Damodar K. Mavalankar, and Cicero’s “Vision of Scipio” is included by reason of H.P.B.’s briefly informative footnotes.

Judge’s “Notes on the Bhagavad Gita” is a Path article which was not a part of the book of that name, and also from notes found in the effects of Countess Wachtmeister, apparently taken down from dictation by H.P.B.

The value of the writings here presented will be self-evident to Theosophical students and readers.
