1. I behold a small dark orb, wheeling in an abyss of infinite space.
It is minute among a myriad vast ones, dark amid a myriad bright ones.
2. I who comprehend in myself all the vast and the minute, all the
bright and the dark, have mitigated the brilliance of mine unutterable
splendour, sending forth V.V.V.V.V. as a ray of my light, as a messenger
unto that small dark orb.
3. Then V.V.V.V.V. taketh up the word, and sayeth:
4. Men and women of the Earth, to you am I come from the Ages beyond
the Ages, from the Space beyond your vision; and I bring to you these
5. But they heard him not, for they were not ready to receive them.
6. But certain men heard and understood, and through them shall this
Knowledge be made known.
7. The least therefore of them, the servant of them all writeth this
8. He writeth for them that are ready. Thus is it known if one be
ready, if he be endowed with certain gifts, if he be fitted by birth, or
by wealth, or by intelligence, or by some other manifest sign. And the
servants of the master by his insight shall judge of these.
9. This Knowledge is not for all men; few indeed are called, but of
those few many are chosen.
10. This is the nature of the Work.
11. First, there are many and diverse conditions of life upon this
earth. In all of these is some seed of sorrow. Who can escape from
sickness and from old age and from death?
12. We are come to save our fellows from these things. For there is
a life intense with knowledge and extreme bliss which is untouched by any
of them.
13. To this life we attain even here and now. The adepts, the
servants of V.V.V.V.V., have attained there-unto.
14. It is impossible to tell you of the splendours of that to which
they have attained.
Little by little, as your eyes grow stronger, will we unveil to you
the ineffable glory of the Path of the Adepts, and its nameless goal.
15. Even as a man ascending a steep mountain is lost to sight of his
friends in the valley, so must the adept seem. They shall say: He is
lost in the clouds. But he shall rejoice in the sunlight above them, and
come to the eternal snows.
16. Or as a scholar may learn some secret language of the ancients,
his friends shall say: "Look! he pretends to read this book. But it is
unintelligible--it is nonsense.
" Yet he delights in the Odyssey, while
they read vain and vulgar things.
17. We shall bring you to Absolute Truth, Absolute Light, Absolute
18. Many adepts throughout the ages have sought to do this; but their
words have been perverted by their successors, and again and again the
Veil has fallen upon the Holy of Holies.
19. To you who yet wander in the Court of the Profane, we cannot yet
reveal all; but you will easily understand that the religions of the
world are but symbols and veils of the Absolute Truth. So also are the
philosophies. To the adept, seeing all these things from above, there
seems nothing to choose between Buddha and Mohammed, between Atheism and
20. The many change and pass; the one remains. Even as wood and coal
and iron burn up together in one great flame, if only that furnace be of
transcendent heat; so in the alembic of this spiritual alchemy, if only
the zelator blow sufficiently upon this furnace all the systems of earth
are consumed in the One Knowledge.
21. Nevertheless, as a fire cannot be started with iron alone, in the
beginning one system may be suited for one seeker, another for another.
22. We therefore who are without the chains of ignorance, look
closely into the heart of the seeker and lead him by the path which is
best suited to his nature unto the ultimate end of all things, the
supreme realization, the Life which abideth in Light, yea, the Life which
abideth in Light.
