Similarly, if we look at the moon with the naked eye and again through a telescope, the view is bound to differ completely. But this does not mean that the first impression was false; rather, the second sight means getting more and fuller knowledge, which would still be found "wrong" by the man who reaches the moon.

Almost the whole of the subject matter of this compilation was personally dictated to me by the Master during the last five or six years of his silence*, but I am indebted to Mr. H. J. Dastur for some literary changes made in my original compositions. A prolonged spell of illness has provided me with the time and opportunity of bringing out my notes in the shape of this little book; though I must admit that but for the untiring help and patience of Mr. Faramroj B. Workingbox in assisting a sick man, this would have been impossible.
