FOREWORD TO VOLUME XII
The material in the present Volume is in direct chronological sequence to the writings in Volume Eleven, and includes some very important essays from H.P.B.’s pen.
In addition to that, the student will find in its pages the complete, unaltered and unedited text of H.P.B.’s Esoteric Instructions.
The continued interest and helpful assistance of our collaborators and friends is gratefully acknowledged. Special mention should be made of Dara Eklund, Nicholas Curtis Weeks, Shelley von Strunckel and Peter S. Ryan, who read the proofs in various stages of production. We also appreciate the careful work done by Dara Eklund in preparing the Index. Our grateful recognition is extended to Grace F. Knoche and Kirby van Mater for special help and serious interest they exhibited in connection with the text of the Esoteric Instructions. We also wish to acknowledge the expert technical work performed by Jim Burgener in the reproduction of the Colored Plates in the Instructions, which add considerably to the value of the Volume as a whole.
