Overview

EVER the idea of the Masters, the Elder Brothers of Humanity, sends a thrill through the human heart, and any words about them are eagerly and gladly welcomed. The idea of there being anything illogical in the conception of these great Beings, these perfected Men, has quite passed away from the West, as though it had not been. It is now realised that the existence of such Beings is natural, and that, given evolution, these highest products of evolution are a natural necessity. Many are beginning to see in the great figures of the past, evidence that such Men are, and as reason recognises them in the past, hope springs forward to find them in the present.

More: there is an increasing number of persons amongst us, both in the East and the West, who have succeeded in finding the Masters, and from whose minds, therefore, doubt of their existence has for ever been swept away. The Way to them is open, and those who seek shall find.

May this booklet arouse some to the seeking of the great Teachers. I, who know them, can do no greater service to my brethren, than to inspire them to begin a search which will give them a prize beyond all telling.

—Annie Besant
