These lessons were originally issued in the form of monthly booklets. They met with such a hearty support from the public, and seemed to fill so well a need of students of Occultism, that it was thought advisable to issue them in the present form. We consider these lessons the simplest, most practical, and plainest presentation of the elementary principles of Oriental Occultism ever issued. ? ?They, of course, are elementary, but seem to be just what the average student requires. Not only are they adapted to the requirements of the beginner, but many older and advanced students have written us that they have found great pleasure and much profit from again going over their kindergarten lessons in such plain form. ? ?The author, following his usual custom, declined to write a preface for this book, holding to his oft expressed idea that ?truth should be self?evident, and in no manner dependent upon the personality of its teachers,? he feeling that he had said all that he had to say, in the lessons themselves, and not wishing to ?intrude his personality? upon his readers.
