The Importance of the Law of Reincarnation

There is a passage from Ms. Helena Blavatsky that is also very relevant in the context of the general message of this site, where she comments on the importance of the Law of Reincarnation in explaining the differences between human beings and in explaining the Law of the Universal Brotherhood of Humanity. And, therefore, that the absence of a logical explanation for these differences is extremely pernicious:

Cultured people have been brought up in that most pernicious idea that the wide difference found between the units of one and the same mankind, or even race, is the result of chance; that the gulf between man and man in their respective social positions, birth, intellect, physical and mental capacities – every one of which qualifications has a direct influence on every human life – that all this is simply due to blind hazard, only the most pious among them finding equivocal consolation in the idea that this is ‘the will of God.’ They have never analysed, never stopped to think of the depth of the opprobrium that is thrown upon their God, once the grand and most equitable law of the manifold rebirths of man upon this earth is foolishly rejected.” (Helena Blavatsky. Collected Writings, Vol. XIV, p. 57; emphasis added)
