The world needs individuals who recognise a spiritual evolution of the race, for surely that is the intention of Nature. It needs a blend of inward view of the East that seeks the secret of man's des- tiny and the great endeavour of the West to perfect life and utilise it. Certainly, a true beginning has to be made in this direction, and the pioneers will take all human life- the intellectual, the aesthetic, the ethical, the vital and the physical - for their province. Nothing will be considered as alien to their work, for in everything lies concealed the supreme Spirit; the great necessity is that of the conversion of the normal mind into the spiritual.
