Dec 31st 1997

	And a productive and happy New Year for 1998 to you !

HPB in writing in LUCIFER on the New Year said:

	"Let no one imagine that it is a mere fancy, the attaching of importance
to the birth of the year.  The astral life of the earth is young and strong
between Christmas and Easter.  Those who form their wishes now, will have
added strength to fulfill them consistently." ...Let no one mistake the
importance and potency of numbers--as symbols.  Everything in the Universe
was framed according to the eternal proportions and combinations of
numbers.  "God geometrizes," and numbers and numerals are the fundamental
basis of all systems of mysticism, philosophy, and religion.  The
respective festivals of the year and their dates were all fixed according
to the Sun--the "father of all calendars" and of the Zodiac, or the sun-god
and the twelve great, but still minor gods..."	HPB -- THE YEAR IS DEAD
				ULT - HPB Articles I p. 504

	"The 3rd day of the month was sacred to Pallas Athene, the goddess of
Wisdom;  and January the 4th is the day of Mercury (Hermes, Budha), who is
credited with adding brains to the heads of those who are civil to
him...December the 25th was the day of the birth of the sun for those who
inhabited the Northern hemisphere..."       ( - idem, p. 505 )

	"According to our theosophical tenets, every man or woman is endowed, more
or less, with a magnetic potentiality, which when helped by a sincere, and
especially by an intense and indomitable will--is the most effective of
magic levers placed by Nature in human hands--for woe as for weal.  Let us
then, theosophists, use that will to send a sincere greeting and a wish of
good luck for the new Year to every living creature under the sun...Let us
try and feel especially kind and forgiving to our foes and persecutors,
honest or dishonest..."	HPB  "1890"
