Beatrice Lane Suzuki: An American Theosophist in Japan - Adele S. Algeo:

Although a Buddhist Mrs. Suzuki never lost her interest in Theosophy and once was head of the T.S. in Japan. She told me that Prof. Suzuki's first gift to her was the "Voice of the Silence" which he wrote her was "pure Mahayana Buddhism." He was a student at Oxford at the time and she was at Columbia University. Mrs. Suzuki was devoted to Dr. Besant and Theosophical notables visiting Japan were always welcome guests....
The Voice of the Silence is one of Blavatsky’s most quoted works:
Silence Please By Graham Peebles Friday, 13 November 2015
Beyond our endless thoughts, our fears and desires, beyond all the surface chaos, sit’s silence. A point of peace and contentment veiled by activities of the mind, which Helena Blavatsky (founder of the Theosophical society in 1875) in The Voice of The Silence, said is “the great slayer of the real”.

Enough - David Zenon Starlyte

Helena Blavatsky writes, “Thou canst not travel on the Path before thou hast become that Path itself.” The road less travelled represents leaving the familiar and moving into the field of the spiritual warrior. Many lifetimes may have led you to this point – reading these words right here, right now. Something is awakening within, drawing you into this field of light, liberation and possibility.

Special Thanks to N.W. for suggesting this post.
