FOOTNOTE TO “A TREATISE ON SUFISM”
[The Theosophist, Vol. III, No. 11, August, 1882 p. 266]
[In this paper, written in 1811 and treating of Mohammedan mysticism, the statement is made that “the Sufi has no religion.” On this H. P. B. remarks:]
That is to say, no external, ritualistic, and dogmatic religion. The same may be said of every Mahatma, or any one who seriously strives to become one. He is a Theosophist and must strive after “divine,” not human, wisdom.
