By Helena Blavatsky – “It should never be forgotten that Occultism is concerned with the inner man who must be strengthened and freed from the dominion of seek-truththe physical body and its surroundings, which must become his servants.

Hence the first and chief necessity of Chelaship is a spirit of absolute unselfishness and devotion to Truth; then follow self-knowledge and self-mastery.

These are all-important; while outward observance of fixed rules of life is a matter of secondary moment.”
