THE ESOTERIC SECTION OF THE THEOSOPHICAL SOCIETY
[Lucifer, Vol. III, No. 14, October, 1888, p. 176] *
Owing to the fact that a large number of Fellows of the Society have felt the necessity for the formation of a body of Esoteric students, to be organized on the ORIGINAL LINES devised by the real founders of the T. S., the following order has been issued by the President-Founder:—
I. To promote the esoteric interests of the Theosophical Society by the deeper study of esoteric philosophy, there is hereby organised a body, to be known as the “Esoteric Section of the Theosophical Society.”
II. The constitution and sole direction of the same is vested in Madame H. P. Blavatsky, as its Head; she is solely responsible to the Members for results; and the section has no official or corporate connection with the Exoteric Society save in the person of the President-Founder.
* [The same Official Notice was published the following month, namely November, 1888, on page 264 of Lucifer. At the end of it, below the signatures, appeared these words: “Om ah guru munjee Goshaya barsid dhi . . . Höm.”—Compiler.]
III. Persons wishing to join the Section, and willing to abide by its rules, should communicate directly with:--Mme. H. P. Blavatsky, 17 Lansdowne Road, Holland Park, London, W.
(Signed) H. S. OLCOTT,
President in Council.
Attest:—H. P. BLAVATSKY.
