[The Theosophist, Vol. I, No. 3, December, 1879, p. 76]

[The writer, having contributed some remarks on the ancient glory of Aryavarta, expresses his hope of seeing it soon restored through the efforts of the Theosophical Society and the help of The Theosophist.]

Our welcome contributor is a Rajput and imbued, apparently, with that chivalrous ardour which ever characterized that warrior race. While disclaiming for our journal or Society, all pretense of assuming the leadership, or aspiring to anything more than a very humble part in the great work of Indian national reform, we nevertheless affirm the sincerity of our motives, and publish without emendation our brother’s words, in the hope and belief that his noble patriotism will awaken responsive echoes all over the land. For the regeneration of India must be effected by the efforts of her own children.
