Publishers’ Notice

THE TRANSACTIONS of the Blavatsky Lodge of the Theosophical Society have long been out of print, so that the title of the Answers by H.P.Blavatsky to Questions propounded by some of her students requires explanation.

H.P.B. removed from the Continent to England in the summer of 1887. In the autumn of that year she commenced the publication of her magazine LUCIFER, which she continued to edit until her death in 1891.

Shortly after the commencement of LUCIFER some of the more ardent students of her teachings of THEOSOPHY with drew from the London Lodge, then and thereafter under the influence of Mr. A. P. Sinnett, and established the BLAVATSKY LODGE, which soon became the centre of Theosophical activities in Britain. Many men and women of note became members of the Lodge. When the SECRET DOCTRINE was published late in 1888 it aroused intense interest, and many literary, scientific and philosophical questions were raised by the students.

H. P. B. was urged to reply to these questions and yielding to the insistencies of the students, she attended many of the meetings of the BLAVATSKY LODGE during the first half of 1889. The Questions propounded to her cover a very wide range, for they were formulated by intelligent, thoughtful, and highly educated men and women. Her Answers were given orally, but were stenographically reported and afterwards revised by her for their publication in the two TRANSACTIONS issued, No. I in 1890, And No. II in 1891.

These TRANSACTIONS contain matter of great and enduring value on the subjects treated in the SECRET DOCTRINE and, for the students of Occultism for whose instruction the SECRET DOCTRINE was written, they are a priceless Commentary at first hand on some of the most abstruse and difficult problems of the Esoteric Philosophy.

Transaction No. 1 was reprinted in the magazine THEOSOPHY, Volume IV, and Transaction No. II in Volume VI of the same magazine. in the intervening years there has come about a great revival of interest in the work and teachings of H.P.Blavatsky. The passage of time has but served to throw into clearer and grander relief the heroic figure of time great Messenger and the surpassing importance of her MESSAGE. Theosophists everywhere are beginning to pay more serious attention to the Source of all their inspiration, and the time seems ripe to make once more accessible to them these invaluable TRANSACTIONS.

To convenience the student we have included, from the text of the SECRET DOCTRINE, the STANZAS OF DZYAN and, for the rest, the present edition of the TRANSACTIONS follows faithfully the text of the Questions and Answers as they appeared in the two Numbers originally issued. it is offered, as was her SECRET DOCTRINE itself, “to all true Theosophists, in every Country, and of every Race, for they called it forth, and for them it was recorded;”

“That we all labor together transmitting the same charge and
Till we saturate time and eras, that the men and women of
races, ages to come, may prove brethren and lovers
as we are.”
