Reveal a Root Truth
|Blavatsky has asserted that all major religions trace back to one original
religion. "World's Scripture - A Comparative Anthology of Sacred Texts," published in 1991, is a scholarly translation of
many quotations from a wide variety of world religious traditions. It gives
striking evidence of the truth of what Blavatsky had asserted a century
earlier. Here are some subject headings from that book. (Both the new student
and the long time student should find this material striking.)|
Blavatsky held that a law of compassion was the law of laws - that brotherhood
and altruism were the ideals we should follow. Furthermore she gave the
fundamental reason for ethics - providing its binding force and logic -
that is, we are all ONE at the spiritual level. Below is the Golden Rule
occurring more often than we might have been aware.
Rule - 13 quotations
Before Blavatsky began her mission in 1875, the word "karma"
was virtually unknown in the West. She was responsible for introducing that
word in the West and its commonplace character today is a tribute to her
enduring influence. She explained it was a part of the world's religions
and an element of the true ancient wisdom religion. The quotes below give
part of the available support for her claim.
Karma - 40 quotations
Blavatsky asserted an ultimate cosmic reality, called the "Absolute",
"An Omnipresent, Eternal, Boundless, and Immutatble Principle on
which all speculation is impossible, since it transcends the power of human
conception and could only be dwarfed by any human expression or similitude
. It is beyond the range and reach of thought - in the words of Mandukya,
"unthinkable and unspeakable." (Secret Doctrine I p. 14.)
Blavatsky noted this Absolute in the Brahma of Hinduism and the Ainsof
of the Kabala and elsewhere. The following texts make repeated references
to the same idea.
