THE ESOTERIC WRITINGS OF T. SUBBA ROW THE ESOTERIC WRITINGS OF T. SUBBA ROW - (2nd ed. revised) 1931 (Compiled by - T Tookaram Tatya - from various theosophical journals, Subba Row, an initiated Vedantin, broke the vow of silence to help show the way for the new cycle.

T. Subba Row (1856-90), whom H. P. Blavatsky considered her equal, was an outstanding figure of The Theosophical Society in its early years in India. H.P.B. had originally planned the collaboration of Subba Row with her in the production of THE SECRET DOCTRINE, but this plan did not fructify. Col. Olcott has paid the tribute to Subba Row that "there was none equal to him in bright genius for grasping the spirit of the Ancient Wisdom." Subba Row was a contributor to THE THEOSOPHIST and LUCIFER, and his lectures on the Bhagavad Gita have been published separately. In 1883 The Theosophical Society instituted the Subba Row Medal in his honour, to be awarded to the author of a contribution of outstanding merit during the year to Theosophical literature.
