Cover of The Theosophist, October 1879

Master Serapis wrote to Henry S. Olcott about The Theosophist:

"Assert your rights to the paper - it was established for you, none but you two have a right over it.....Whenever convenient explain that the paper is neither yours nor H.P.B.'s but belongs to and is under the control of certain persons no one knows anything about except your two selves...."


Master Koot Hoomi on The Theosophist:

"...Whatever the personal views of the two Founders, the journal of the Society has nothing to do with them, and will publish as willingly criticism directed against Lamaism as against Christianism....The Theosophist making room as willingly for hymns on the Lamb as for slokas on the sacredness of the cow....M[orya] thinks that the Supplement ought to be enlarged if necessary, and made to furnish room for the expression of thought of every Branch, however diametrically opposed these may be.  The Theosophist ought to be made to assume a distinct colour and become a unique specimen of its own.  We are ready to furnish the necessary extra sums for it."


Master K.H. on The Theosophist:

"And who knows, how many of those, who, undismayed by its unprepossessing appearance, the hideous intricacies of its style, and the other many failures of the unpopular magazine will keep on tearing its pages, who may find themselves rewarded some day for their perseverance!  Illuminated sentences may gleam out upon them at some time or other, shedding a bright light upon some old puzzling problems."
