LETTER 1 
FROM THE MAHA-CHOHAN
To A. P. Sinnett
An abridged version of the view of the Chohan on the T.S. from his own words as given last night. My own letter, the answer to yours, will shortly follow. K.H.
The doctrine we promulgate being the only true one, must, supported by such evidence as we are preparing to give become ultimately triumphant as every other truth. Yet it is absolutely necessary to inculcate it gradually, enforcing its theories, unimpeachable facts for those who know, with direct inferences deduced from and corroborated by the evidence furnished by modem exact science.
 In the section “Notes” at the end of the book, the reader will find references and where possible explanations regarding the nature of each letter.
Readers are invited to see in our associated websites the book “Letters From the Masters of the Wisdom - Second Series”, by C. Jinarajadasa (Ed.).
The book “The Mahatma Letters”, edited by A. Trevor Barker, is also available at the same websites.
