Blavatsky herself said it came from the name of the Zend Avesta, the
Zoroastrian sacred book, thus Zend-Zar.
It should be said to make this fair that she was right in saying that
the Brahmins of India had a "secret" language which they used for
esoteric purposes, which sounds very much like Senzar, which is
supposed to be a dialect of Sanskrit. The existence of this language
was written about by one of the first Jesuit missionaries who went
there to pester people into becoming Catholic, despite the fact they
allready had an indigenous spirituality. I found a quote from this
guy years ago, but regret that I cannot specify where I found it
aafter al this time. I do remember the Jesuit guy said the secret
Brahmin language was to them what Latin was to RCs. The description
was not complete enough to make it clear whether the language was
Sanskrit or something which has been kept private by the Pundits.
