The object of this little book is to introduce theosophy as an interpretation of human tragedy. It is the introduction and interpretation of one individual and excludes no other among an almost infinite variety of possible approaches to the subject.

Much of its has necessarily been written in the spirit of " Thus have I heard." Yet the principle that we receive and communicate in this spirit can often become alive and become our own as they are found to respond to the demands of experience.

One short and simple interpretation of human tragedy, human freedom, and many other problems, has been a constant source of illumination to the writer. It is a chapter from The Wonder Child, a little book by C. Jinarajadasa, a revered former President of the Theosophical Society and one who devoted his life to the lightening of human sorrow and the healing of human conflict. This chapter from The Wonder Child is printed as an appendix at the back of this book.
