Reveal a Root Truth

Blavatsky has asserted that all major religions trace back to one original religion. "World's Scripture - A Comparative Anthology of Sacred Texts," published in 1991, is a scholarly translation of many quotations from a wide variety of world religious traditions. It gives striking evidence of the truth of what Blavatsky had asserted a century earlier. Here are some subject headings from that book. (Both the new student and the long time student should find this material striking.)
Golden Rule

Blavatsky held that a law of compassion was the law of laws - that brotherhood and altruism were the ideals we should follow. Furthermore she gave the fundamental reason for ethics - providing its binding force and logic - that is, we are all ONE at the spiritual level. Below is the Golden Rule occurring more often than we might have been aware.

Karma

 Before Blavatsky began her mission in 1875, the word "karma" was virtually unknown in the West. She was responsible for introducing that word in the West and its commonplace character today is a tribute to her enduring influence. She explained it was a part of the world's religions and an element of the true ancient wisdom religion. The quotes below give part of the available support for her claim.

The Absolute

Blavatsky asserted an ultimate cosmic reality, called the "Absolute", as:

"An Omnipresent, Eternal, Boundless, and Immutatble Principle on which all speculation is impossible, since it transcends the power of human conception and could only be dwarfed by any human expression or similitude . It is beyond the range and reach of thought - in the words of Mandukya, "unthinkable and unspeakable." (Secret Doctrine I p. 14.)

Blavatsky noted this Absolute in the Brahma of Hinduism and the Ainsof of the Kabala and elsewhere. The following texts make repeated references to the same idea.
