About the Author: Katherine Tingley was leader of the Theosophical Society (then named the Universal Brotherhood and Theosophical Society) from 1896 to 1929, and is remembered particularly for her educational and social reform work centered at the Society's international headquarters at Point Loma, California. This book has been compiled from material in her The Voice of the Soul and The Travail of the Soul, both long out of print. The chapters are virtually verbatim transcripts of lectures given by the author in the late 1920s, which have now been edited to modernize punctuation and to remove dated references and repetition. The usage of "man" and "men" to include members of both sexes has been retained.
