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 the plunged into the suffragette movement .But her meeting Col. H. S. Olcott , 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 undrilled opportunity to observe human nature , which enabled her to speak and write lucidly on various aspects of life.

Preface

During a long life , continually moving dwelling amongst many nations , in myriads of hospitable homes , I have had an unrivalled opportunity of observing human nature and learning of life. That first - hand experience was enormously clarified and explained by the deep wisdom and truth brought to us by theosophy. Now, looking back over a long life, the great principles and laws of our divine and glorious existence stand out clearly. It took seventy –seven years of living to discover them, but ah! How worth while. May I never forget them in all future lives , through probably the files of youth will obscure them at first.

That is one of the Compensations of growing old, the wisdom that comes to one. When we are young, how we suffer , how we rush blindly into all sorts of mistaken action, and then pay for it with bitter pain. But when life is drawing to its close, peace comes and understanding and fulfilment.

What I have learnt of life let me try to tell you, my brother –men who read these words, and let me offer you at the same time my affectionate and enduring goo d wishes.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
