The large circulation of Mme. Blavatsky's priceless works, the spread of the ideas which she spent her life in learning and teaching, the growth of the Theosophical Society which she founded, at the orders of her Master, and with the aid of her colleague, Colonel H.

An Introduction to the Science of Peace

ONE of the most valuable books issued under the inspiration of Theosophy is The Science of Peace, by Bhagavan ])as, the well-known Hon. Secretary of the Central Hi:nc;lu College, Benares, and just now the General Secretary of the Theosopltical Society in India. Those who seek a lasting intellectual foundation for their thinking will find much help in this valuable and original work.

FEW words are needed in sending this little book out into the world. It is the second of a series of Manuals designed to meet the public demand for a simple exposition of Theosophical teachings.

This book is merely a record of talks by Mr. C. W. Leadbeater – now Bishop Leadbeater – and myself on three famous books – books small in size but great in contents.


Seven is one of the most important numbers in the teachings of theosophy, the wisdom-religion. It is a key by which are revealed and explained many of the mysteries of nature, for in theosophy it is taught that number and numbers underlie all the processes of creation. This numerical key of seven lies at the root of all evolution, whether physical or spiritual. It is therefore important both…
