Hard to come by edition of Katherine Tingley's first book, published in 1902, three years after she moved the International Headquarters of the Theosophical Society to Point Loma, California. "Katherine Tingley said that it was time for the history and teachings of Theosophy to be presented in a new way, adapted to the average mind and the new time
The book was outlined by her to contain some of the vital teachings of the Heart Doctrine – the Wisdom Religion, Theosophy – and also a record of some of the facts, many hitherto unpublished, of the history of this now world-wide Movement. She carefully selected subjects which she felt were best adapted to the present needs of the world (see Contents), including short sketches of the lives of H.P. Blavatsky and William Q. Judge" - Blavatsky House Org.
