Golden Stairs Up the Steps of which the Learner May Climb to the Temple of Divine Wisdom

“A clean life, an open mind, a pure heart, an eager intellect, an unveiled spiritual perception, a brotherliness for one’s co-disciple, a readiness to give and receive advice and instruction, a loyal sense of duty to the Teacher, a willing obedience to the behests of TRUTH, once we have placed our confidence in, and believe that Teacher to be in possession of it; a courageous endurance of personal injustice, a brave declaration of principles, a valiant defense of those who are unjustly attacked, and a constant eye to the ideal of human progress and perfection which the secret science (Gupta-Vidya) depicts — these are the golden stairs up the steps of which the learner may climb to the Temple of Divine Wisdom.” (Helena Blavatsky. Collected Writings, Vol. XII, p. 591)
