In this volume the fundamental teachings of Theosophy are explained in simple and clear terms for a beginner so that he may add more details by further study and research.
It is admitted on all hands that a survey of the great religions of the world shows that hold in common many religious, ethical, and philosophic ideas. The scared books of the East and the West contain teachings about God, man, and the universe identical in substance, under much variety of outer appearance. It does not seem unreasonable, therefore, to refer them to a central primary body of doctrine, the Divine Wisdom. This wisdom is called Theosophy in modern times.
