Description

 

About the Book:

 

Miss Clara Codd was much admired throughout the world for her simple and inspiring exposition of spiritual topics. In this book, with many questions and interesting anecdotes, she explains what the Adepts are, their nature, their ways and teachings for the practical guidance of aspirants on the Path. She also presents the qualifications needed for pursuing the spiritual journey, taking as her basis Buddhist, Hindu, Christian, Theosophical and other texts.

The reader will find the work both charming and stimulating.

 

 

About the Author:

 

Clara M. Codd was born in England in 1876 and early in life rejected conventional mores. Rebelling against all oppression and injustice she plunged into the suffragette movement. But her meeting Col. H. S. Olcoot, President-Founder of the Theosophical Society proved a turning point in her life. Forgoing her active role in the women's social and political union, she joined the Theosophical Society. As an International Lecturer for the Society, she had an unrivalled opportunity to observe human nature, which enabled her to speak and write lucidly on various aspects of life.
