During a successful career as a portrait painter, Vera Stanley Alder began to investigate the Ageless Wisdom -- the vast body of information dealing with the meaning and purpose of man himself and the constitution and evolution of the whole universe. She made it her task to simplify and summarize this knowledge, in order to present it to others.

Mrs Alder was one of the disciples in Alice Bailey's group receiving personal instructions from the Master DK, which were later published in Alice Bailey, Discipleship in the New Age (2 vols).

This book is "an attempt to trace in brief and simple language the progress man has made as he has travelled along the way of truth... It seeks to penetrate behind the outer world of seeming to the world of spirit." It is of note because Alice A. Bailey wrote the Preface, and because of the Author's Notice to the revised 1968 edition: "Together we are watching the transition from the old age into the new age, and we are offering our thought and our prayers for the expected event of the 'Second Coming'."

The cover below is that of the 11th printing (1958) of the first edition.
