Reminiscences of H. P. Blavatsky and The Secret Doctrine

Bro. Kam Chai Heng starts his reading of this book by the Countess Constance Wachtmeister. The publisher says.


“This delightful narrative is a very colourful classic in Theosophical literature.  It shares with the reader some of the insurmountable odds encountered in the production of The Secret Doctrine and offers glimpses of the superhuman dedication and sacrifice of H. P. Blavatsky in writing her magnum opus.”
