In the latter part of 1883, A.P. Sinnett, 
a well-known Theosophist, wrote about a deceased 
seer who had lived at Agra, India and one of 
his followers then living in Allahabad, India:

". . . up to within a few years ago, a very 
highly spiritualised ascetic and gifted seer 
[Shiv Dayal Singh, the acknowledged founder of 
Radhasoami] was living at Agra, where he taught 
a group of disciples and by their own statement 
has frequently re-appeared amongst them since 
his death. This event itself was an effort of 
will accomplished at an appointed time. I have 
heard a good deal about him from one [Rai Salig 
Ram] of his principal followers, a cultivated and 
highly respected native Government official, 
now living at Allahabad. . . . " Quoted from 
Sinnett's article titled " 'The Brothers' of 
Theosophy", LIGHT (London), December 22, 1883, 
pp. 557.

"...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
