Description
About the Author

Annie Besant (1847-1933), second President of the Theosophical Society (1907-1933), was described as a 'Diamond Soul', for she had many brilliant facets to her character. She was an outstanding orator of her time, a champion of human freedom, educationist, philanthropist and author with more than three hundred books and pamphlets to her credit. She also guided thousands of men and women all over the world in their spiritual quest.

In her earlier days in England, she did remarkable work as a Freethinker and Fabian socialist, and supported many noble causes including women's suffrage. From 1893, she lived in India and worked indefatigably for the cultural and spiritual renaissance of the country, she organized the Home Rule movement and inspired Indians with a dynamic vision of India's future.

Publisher's Note

We are happy to republish Dr. Annie Besant's lectures on Avatara-s, which was out of Print for some decades. This work offers some profound insights into the mystery of divine descent and is especially relevant to our times.

The entire gamut of diacriticals to denote the pronunciation of Sanskrit names and works has not been used, as it becomes burdensome for the average reader. But in order to help those who are not familiar with those words, we have used some of the marks, namely, a to indicate the long 'a' as in father; s to distinguish this sibilant from 's' and 'sh'; n to denote the nasal consonant and differentiate it from the ordinary 'n'; and r to mark the Sanskrit semi-vowel as in rishi instead of spelling it as rishi, which is not correct.

Testimonials
Thanks again Exotic India! Always perfect! Great books, India's wisdom golden peak of knowledge!!!
Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
