The Perfume of Egypt And Other Weird Stories
The Perfume of Egypt And Other Weird Stories
Description

Foreword

The Stories told in this book happen to be true of course I do not for a moment expect the ordinary reader to believe that, and I shall be perfectly satisfied if I succeed if I succeed in shilling away for him the tedium of a railway journey, or if I can add for him a touch of pleasure to a comfortable evening before the fire or a lazy afternoon on the river.

For the few whose interest in these subjects is mot merely superficial, I may add that some of the events related and personal experiences of my own, and that the others are reproduced exactly as they were told to me by persons in whose veracity I have every confidence. In every case, except those of 'Jagannath' and 'The Baron's Room', I myself have heard the story directly from the person principally concerned in it, so that there is no place her for the subtle alterations which are inevitably introduced into tales that have passed through many hands. These things happened. And although it may be difficult for one who has made no study of the subject to believe them, those who are familiar with the literature of the occult will readily be able to parallel most of these occurrences.

I have written other and more serious books in which such things as these are scientifically explained; in this volume my only desire is to help my readers to pass pleasantly a few hours of leisure time.

Back of the book

The author of this book, C. W. Leadbeater was a clairvoyant whose range of experience of occult phenomena and unusual happenings was extraordinary. The Perfume of Egypt is a collection of 'weird stories', mostly about ghosts, which is both fascinating and informative, because they represent either personally experiences of the author or what he had heard directly from authentic sources. Readers will find this collection pleasurable and very entertaining.

Mr. Leadbeater himself brings to attention in his Foreword that in other more serious books he has given scientific explanations for the apparently fantastic stories about ghosts and other occult phenomena.

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 !
