is becoming imperatively necessary that Indian knowledge should reveal in the
Western way its scientific foundations. For if we do not do it

discrediting the knowledge in the process.

the Time-Spirit itself insists; their
object, vaguely grasped at by
them, was at bottom the systematic coordination,
explanation and practice of Oriental religion and Oriental mental and
Unfortunately, as always happens to a
great effort in unfit hands, it stumbled at the outset and went
strange paths. ...
A vain attempt to thrust in modern physical
science into the explanation of psychical movements, - to explain
for instance pranayam in the terms of
oxygen and hydrogen! ... to
make a hopeless
amalgam and jumble of science, religion and philosophy all
the terms of the imagination - this
has been the scientific method of
Theosophy. The result is that it lays its hands on truth and
muddles it so badly that it comes out to the world as an untruth. And
there now abound other misstatements of Indian truth, less elaborate
but almost as wild and wide as Theosophy's.
From this growing confusion we must deliver
the future of humanity.
