Blavatsky Trust Newsletters

From 1998 - 2011 the Blavatsky Trust produced an annual newsletter.

Also, John Danser, Theosophical Commentary, Spring 2002: 'Despite the amazing advances which have been made in recent years, and continue to be made, in all the scientific disciplines - particle physics; astro-physics; astronomy; chemistry; biochemistry - and so on - not only do the most fundamental questions remain unanswered, but modern science, because of its materialistic basis, has been compelled to resort to what is palpable nonsense to explain certain phenomena at its frontiers.'

H. P. Blavatsky - A Spiritual Floodlight
Dr. Edi Bilimoria

All spiritual teachers are but messengers. They proffer no initiations and perform no miracles at our behest. All that they can do is to say, with H. P.Blavatsky: 'I can tell you how to find Those who will show you the secret gateway that leads inward only, and closes fast behind the neophyte for evermore. For those who win onwards, there is reward past all telling: the power to bless and save humanity. For those who fail, there are other lives in which success may come.'

Harold Tarn

'The subject of this book is the most fundamental of all Nature's processes. They are all subsidiary to this central theme. The Ancient Wisdom states that the One Life has no attributes but one - Ever-Becoming. However, Life can be regarded as the dynamism in the whole cosmic process. It is immutable and therefore cannot become anything.'

The Blavatsky Lecture [extracted from this paper] was delivered at the Summer School of the Theosophical Society in England, University of Nottingham . Sunday 1st August 1999.
