How Women Enlighten the Future

A Sacred Key to  the
Mystery of  Karma and Love
A Master of the Wisdom

“When that knowledge comes, all dogmatic
religions, and with these the demons, will die out.”

Woman must not be looked upon as only an appanage of man, since she was not made for his mere benefit or pleasure any more than he for hers; but the two must be realised as equal powers though unlike individualities.

Until the age of 7 the skeletons of girls do not differ in any way from those of boys, and the osteologist would be puzzled to discriminate them. Woman’s mission is to become the mother of future occultists - of those who will be born without sin.

On the elevation of woman the world’s redemption and salvation hinge. And not till woman bursts the bonds of her sexual slavery, to which she has ever been subjected, will the world obtain an inkling of what she really is and of her proper place in the economy of nature.

Old India, the India of the Rishis, made the first sounding with her plummet line in this ocean of Truth, but the post-Mahabaratean India, with all her profundity of learning, has neglected and forgotten it.

The light that will come to it and to the world at large, when the latter shall discover and really appreciate the truths that underlie this vast problem of sex, will be like “the light that never shone on sea or land”,  and has to come to men through the Theosophical Society. [1] That light will lead on and up to the true spiritual intuition. Then the world will have a race of Buddhas and Christs, for the world will have discovered that individuals have it in their own power to procreate Buddha-like children or - demons.

When that knowledge comes, all dogmatic religions, and with these the demons, will die out.


[1] The original Theosophical Society ceased to exist in the 1890s, and the theosophical movement has had since then a growing diversity of organizations. The sentence refers to the writings of classical theosophy which examine the question of sexual differentiation and the evolutionary process of mankind. (CCA)


The above sentences were written by a Master of the Wisdom and published as a footnote on p. 172 of the book “The Paradoxes of the Highest Science”, by Eliphas Levi, TPH, Adyar, India, 1922.  The text is here reproduced from the September 2015 edition of “The Aquarian Theosophist”, pp. 1-2. (CCA)


On the role of the esoteric movement in the ethical awakening of mankind during the 21st century, see the book “The Fire and Light of Theosophical Literature”, by Carlos Cardoso Aveline.  

Published in 2013 by The Aquarian Theosophist, the volume has 255 pages and can be obtained through Amazon Books.
