"In order, then, that we may trace man's pedigree 
aright, we shall do well to follow the broad outlines 
laid down by that great disciple of the Sages, 
H.P.B. whom here I salute, with my heart's 
gratitude for the light and the knowledge that 
she has brought to the modern world. At the very 
outset of these lectures, I would acknowledge my 
debt to her great work, The Secret Doctrine, from 
which the whole plan and innumerable details are 
taken; I have added some facts, filled up some 
lacunae, bridged some gulfs, perhaps, but most 
of the materials are here, and are drawn from 
that record of her vast occult knowledge, her 
giant grasp of facts."
