THIS volume of teaching was received from the Inner Planes during 1923 and 1924, The one who gave it is a human being evolved to a very high level. The Personality of his last incarnation is known but is not revealed, but it may be said that it was of a world-famous philosopher and teacher. In the terminology which is used in esotericism this individual is one of the " Greater Masters."
The object of these teachings is to induce a deeper understanding of Cosmic Law, and to expand consciousness that it may lift thoughts to the source from which they issued. These teachings will also be found to form a basis upon which considerable esoteric knowledge can be built, and to contain the explanation of much that has hitherto been inaccessible to the general reader. On account of the vastness of the conception, however, which is beyond the limitations of our concrete minds, it has been necessary to resort to the extensive use of metaphor.
The reader is advised to persevere in his efforts to gain the utmost from these teachings by study and meditation.
