HE remarks under this head are intended to be introductory to each of the Manuals. First, as to the spirit in which they are of fered. These manuals are not written in a controversial spirit, nor as an addition to the stock of theories awaiting public approval. The writers have no time to waste in arguing with people who do not wish to be convinced, or who ridicule everything which is new to their limited outlook. Their message is for those who desire to know those who are seeking for something that will solve their doubts and remove their difficulties. For such, all that is needed is a clear exposition of the Theosophical teachings; for they will judge of the truth of a teaching by its power to an swer the questions they ask. People realize, much more now than in the early days of the Theosophical Society, the value of Theosophy.
