The Golden Stairs is a writing taken "from the letter of a Master" that H. P. Blavatsky published. It was first presented in 1888 as a private document to members of the Esoteric Section of the Theosophical Society, as guide to Chelaship. The text was made public for all to read in 1890. It reads:

Behold the truth before you: 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 defence of those who are unjustly attacked, and a constant eye to the ideal of human progression 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.[1]
