A Casebook of Encounters
with the Theosophical Mahatmas
Compiled and edited by Daniel H. Caldwell
Marion Meade in her 1980 biography titled Madame Blavatsky, The Woman Behind The Myth wrote:
"In all, about nine or ten persons testified to having seen the Mahatmas: Annie Besant, Henry Olcott, Damodar Mavalankar, Isabel Cooper-Oakley, William Brown, Nadyezhda Fadeyev, S.R. Ramaswamier, Justine Glinka and Vsevolod Solovyov. Franz Hartmann said that while he never actually saw them, he felt their presence." (p. 497.)
I remember the first time reading this statement by Meade and exclaiming to myself, "Oh Marion Meade, you haven't done your homework!" Off the top of my head, I could count at least twenty-five people who testified to having seen the Mahatmas during H.P.B.'s lifetime. And despite Meade's statement to the contrary, Franz Hartmann had testified that he had actually seen one of the Mahatmas.Master Koot Hoomi
It is a historical fact that more than twenty five individuals testified to having seen and been in contact with the Mahatmas during H.P.Blavatsky's lifetime.
In this book I have compiled most of these testimonies in chronological order. The narratives have been transcribed from the original sources but material not relevant to the subject has been silently deleted. The original texts, however, can be found from the source references. Explanatory words added by the editor are enclosed within brackets.
