Preface ~
A word of explanation is necessary with regard to the book now offered to thepublic. In the 9th and 10th volumes of the theosophist I wrote certain Essays on"Nature’s Finer Forces". The subject of these essays interested the readers of the Theosophist so much that I was asked to issue the series of Essays in book form. Ifound that in order to make a book they must be almost entirely rearranged, andperhaps rewritten. I was, however, not equal to the task of rewriting what I hadonce written. I therefore determined to publish a translation of the book inSanskrit on the
Science of the Breath and the Philosophy of the Tatwas
. As,however, without these Essays the book would have been quite unintelligible, Idecided to add them to the book by way of an illustrative introduction. Thisaccordingly has been done. The Essays in the theosophist have been reprintedwith certain additions, modifications, and corrections. Besides, I have writtenseven more Essays in order to make the explanations more complete andauthoritative. Thus there are altogether 15 introductory and explanatory Essays.I was confirmed in this course by one more consideration. The book containsa good deal more than the essays touched upon, and I thought it better to lay allof it before the public.

 The book is sure to throw a good deal of light upon the scientific researchesof the ancient Aryans of India, and it will leave no doubt in a candid mind that thereligion of ancient India had a scientific basis. It is chiefly for this reason that Ihave drawn my illustrations of the Tatwic Law from the Upanishads. There is a good deal in the book that can only be shown to be true by longand diligent experiment. Those who are devoted to the pursuit of truth withoutprejudice will no doubt be ready to wait before they form any opinion about suchportions of the book. Others it is useless to reason with. To the former class of students I have to say one word more. From my ownexperience I can tell them that the more they study the book, the more wisdomthey are sure to find in it, and let me hope that ere long I shall have a goodlynumber of colleagues, who will with me try their best to explain and illustrate thebook still better, and more thoroughly.
