The Jewish Kabbalistic doctrine is the distorted echo of lost Chaldean Wisdom. This wisdom gathered from Mesopotamia is nationalised into the Jewish system. It is the ultimate formulae that makes them estranged. The Jewish system possesses four keys of the seven dialects of the Mysteries. Most notable, is their system of sacred measures. Mathematics, apart of this, is a vital component to the study of the mysteries. When Sir Isaac Newton and other non-initiates have through their own efforts, discovered this, their colleagues regarded them as mad, and it equally drove them to obsession. While the Catholics and Protestants hold that Babylonian and Chaldean tradition are the “mother of all idolatrous religions” we remark, they would be nothing without it.
This as well includes the Egyptian sacred mysteries.
Helena P. Blavatsky argues in “The Eastern Gupta Vidya and the Kabalah,” that the Books of the Torah are not the original Books. She notes, that the ten “lost tribes” is a myth (an invention of the Rabbis); that the Talmudists entirely disfigured the Books of Moses; the Jews adopted the Chaldean phonetic tongue; the repudiation by the Samaritans and others of the present Books; that the Jews mutilated the Books and Laws and have no real access to the occult cosmogony and laws of such a Moses. The Kabbalah is a distorted echo of the lost Chaldaeism, and the Jewish system does not contain the full mystery language. General “Theosophy” here is called the “Aryan Chaldeo-Tibetan” doctrine, or Universal Wisdom-Religion and is explained.
“. . . Probably the Aryan (we shall for the present call it by that name) and the Chaldeo-Tibetan esoteric doctrines are fundamentally identical and the secret doctrine of the Jewish Kabalists merely an offshoot of these.” (T. Subba Row. Jan. 1882. The Āryan-Arhat Esoteric Tenets on the Sevenfold Principle in Man. The Theosophist, Vol. III, No. 4, pg. 93)
“It is out of the question to begin an argument here to prove the origin of the aborigines of Tibet as connected with one of the three great races which superseded each other in Babylonia, whether we call them the Akkadians (invented by F. Lenormant), or the primitive Turanians, Chaldees and Assyrians. Be it as it may, there is reason to call the Trans-Himâlayan esoteric doctrine Chaldæo-Tibetan. And, when we remember that the Vedas came—agreeably to all traditions—from the Mansarova Lake in Tibet, and the Brâhmans themselves from the far north, we are justified in looking on the esoteric doctrines of every people who once had or still have them, as having proceeded from one and the same source, and to thus call it the “Âryan-Chaldæo-Tibetan” doctrine, or Universal Wisdom Religion. “Seek for the Lost Word among the hierophants of Tartary, China and Tibet,” was the advice of Swedenborg, the seer.” (H.P. Blavatsky, Notes on Some Āryan-Arhat Esoteric Tenets, Appendices I)
“As no statements contained in the records of the Secret Doctrine of the East are regarded as of any value by the world in general, and since, to be understood by and convince the reader, one has to quote names familiar to him, and use arguments and proofs out of documents which are accessible to all, the following facts may perhaps demonstrate that our assertions are not merely based on the teachings of Occult Records.” (The Eastern Gupta Vidya and the Kabalah. Collected Writings, Vol. 14, pg. 172.)
We will have to say, we are not satisfied with the myths, but to seek the truths underlying them.
“It would be worse than useless to publish in these pages even those portions of the esoteric teachings that have now escaped from confinement, unless the genuineness and authenticity – at any rate, the probability – of the existence of such teachings was first established. Such statements as will now be made, have to be shown warranted by various authorities: those of ancient philosophers, classics and even certain learned Church Fathers, (…) The writer will have to give historical and trustworthy names, and to cite well-known authors, ancient and modern, of recognized ability, good judgment, and truthfulness, as also to name some of the famous proficients in the secret arts and science, along with the mysteries of the latter, as they are divulged, or, rather, partially presented before the public in their strange archaic form. (…)” (Helena Blavatsky. 1888. The Secret Doctrine, Vol. 1: Introductory. pp. xxxviii-xxxix.)
“This accounts for the necessity under which the writer has laboured to be ever explaining the facts given from the hoariest Past (…) by evidence gathered from the historical period. No other means was at hand, at the risk even of being once more charged with a lack of method and system. The public must be made acquainted with the efforts of many World-adepts, of initiated poets, writers, and classics of every age, to preserve in the records of Humanity the Knowledge of the existence, at least, of such a philosophy, if not actually of its tenets.” (Helena Blavatsky, The Secret Doctrine, Vol. 1, pg., xlv.)
“The sole advantage which the writer has over her predecessors, is that she need not resort to personal speculations and theories. For this work is a partial statement of what she herself has been taught by more advanced students, (…) The writer (…) believes in the ancients, and the modern heirs to their Wisdom. And believing in both, she now transmits that which she has received and learnt herself to all those who will accept it.” (Helena Blavatsky, The Secret Doctrine, Vol. 1, pg. vii, xxxvii)
Blavatsky spends most of her introductory outlining, exactly where we may be able to look in source material for the teachings we find so obscure, from China to Mongolia. From the Druids, to the Skalds, to the most obscure of Islanders and Tribes, Theosophists sought to demonstrate this secret doctrine.
