Theosophy or "Divine Wisdom" according to Helena Petrovna Blavatsky 
(1831-91) and her followers, refers to the Ultimate Truth of the 
Supreme, the Cosmos, and Humanity. It is a Truth that in its pure 
form is primordial, in that it existed from the dawn of Humanity; 
esoteric, since only those few individuals capable of understanding 
such knowledge are allowed to receive it; and universal, because all 
great minds throughout the world enunciated the same Wisdom. Though 
esoteric, at least a portion of the Wisdom was "known in every 
ancient country having claim to civilization."

"...none but the logician, the investigator, the dauntless
explorer should meddle with books like this. Such delvers
after truth have the courage of their opinions."
H.P. Blavatsky

"...Contrast alone can enable us to appreciate things at
their right value; and unless a judge compares notes and
hears both sides he can hardly come to a correct decision."
H.P. Blavatsky

" the world mental as in the world spiritual each man
must progress by his own efforts. The writer cannot do the
reader's thinking for him, nor would the latter be any the
better off if such vicarious thought were possible..."
H.P. Blavatsky
