Theosophy for Everyone

Mahatma Letters Study Class

Letters No. 45 & 46


Part of Letter 45 is concerned with the medium William Eglinton, whom the Mahatma here terms “the poor sensitive lad.” Eglinton seems to have been a fine medium; it was said that he never resorted to trickery. He had, however, a number of personal weaknesses. It may be remembered that there was some indication that the Mahatma K. H. had considered bringing him to Simla for a series of training so that he could be used in their work, but after Eglinton arrived in Calcutta, the Master decided against this.


In all probability, Letter 46 grew out of Letter No. 44 (ML-13) which consisted of questions by Sinnett and answers by the Mahatma M, and is labeled by Sinnett “Cosmological Notes.”

Mahatma Letters Study Class

Letter No. 47


LETTER No. 47.—This is the first letter received by A. P. Sinnett from Master K. H. after the latter’s return from his retreat. He had been out of correspondence for about three months, during which time Master M had been filling in for him with the correspondence.


The careful student of the Mahatma Letters will note a decided change in Master K. H.’s correspondence from this time on. He evidently had gone through a momentous time in his life, advancing a stage in his evolution and assuming the duties of a Chohan of his ray. We see a deeper aspect to his nature, a wider vista and added responsibility. As he says in his opening sentence, ‘I have been on a long journey after supreme knowledge...’ Meaning a journey in consciousness, not in distance.

Mahatma Letters Study Class

Letters No. 48, 49 & LBS-195 & LBS-206



LETTER No. 48.—Evidently the letter is in reply to a letter from Sinnett addressed to the Mahatma M. before Sinnett realized that the Mahatma K. H. was again ready to resume correspondence. Much in this letter seems obscure because we do not have Sinnett’s comments to which the letter is in reply.

LETTER No. 49.—This was the second letter to be received by A. P. Sinnett after Mahatma K. H.’s ‘retreat’. Refer to Letter 38, a letter from Stainton Moses in which the Mahatma KH inserted some comments. In those comments, appended at the end of Moses’s letter, the Mahatma said: ‘My letter is private. You may use the arguments but not my authority or name.’ In those notes it was mentioned that the Mahatma was referring to a letter which he was writing, or had written, but which Sinnett had not yet received. This is that letter. The fact that it is dated as received on March 3 strengthens the suggestion that the Mahatma’s comments on Moses’s letter were written late in February or very early in March. As a matter of fact, its length indicates that it may have taken several days to write. And at the end of this letter, he warns Sinnett: ‘And now need I remind you that this letter is strictly private?’
