2009 August Programme

1st August 2009  5 p.m.*

Children Who Claim to Remember Previous Lives

In a slide-illustrated talk, the noted academic researcher Dr. Ian Stevenson discusses a lifetime devoted to carefully researching thousands of cases of children (usually between the ages of 2 and 5) who claim to remember previous lives. In many cases, the child’s statements have been verified, and it has been shown to be highly unlikely that the child could have obtained the correct information about the deceased person through normal means. This programme is for members only.

Mahatma Letters Study Class

Letter No. 20


This is an interesting and very valuable letter for the aspirant. Sinnett was told to keep it “strictly confidential for it is neither for publication nor your friends.” In this letter: The Master encouraged A. P. Sinnett to begin on his “future book”, the sooner the better; Comments about the negative reviews of The Occult World by Saturday Review and Spiritualist; the sacrilegious utterances of J.K.; Reminder that the Occult Science is not one in which secrets can be communicated of a sudden, by a written or even verbal communication; The reasons for the Masters’ seeming ‘reticence’; The sacrifice of the Master in taking pupils and the ‘price’ He must pay; an idea of the Master’s travel.

Mahatma Letters Study Class

Letter No. 21, 22 & 23


These three letters were written by the Master K. H. before His spiritual retreat. The first intimation of His retreat is found in Letter 21 where the Master writes “Very soon I will have to leave you to yourselves for the period of three months.” In this letter: The Master comments on the imprudence of Sinnett in making copious extracts for Stainton Moses from the Master’s letter (Letter 18) when he was precisely told not to do so as it was written in confidence only to give Sinnett an appreciation of who the Imperator might be. And again Sinnett’s indiscretion with the information regarding C. C. Massey which was never intended for Massey’s ears.
