One of the last works of the great esoteric teacher and Theosophical Society co-founder H. P. Blavatsky is the little gem known as “The Voice of the Silence.” Consisting of slightly over 300 verses, its beautiful and poetic style has inspired generations of readers, many of whom have used it as a spiritual guidebook and for daily meditation. In this introductory talk, we will explore some of the main themes found in The Voice of the Silence, such as compassion and the Three Halls, as well as some of its more celebrated verses.
