    "The Secret Doctrine is the accumulated Wisdom of the Ages ... it is
    the uninterrupted record covering thousands of generations of Seers

    traditions passed orally by one early race to another, of the
    teachings of higher and exalted beings, who watched over the
    childhood of Humanity."
