First S.P.R. Report on H.P.B.
We give this chiefly as an interesting account of the mode of dealing with the Shrine.
The case of the letter from Mahatma Koot Hoomi enclosed in one from Madame G------, must not, we think, have much stress laid on it, as it was probably forwarded to Mr. Brown, from Adyar.
From Mr. Browns Some Experiences in India, pp. 6, 7, 17.
One evening, shortly after my arrival at Adyar, some letters were being sent by Chelas to their Masters, and I was permitted to enter the Occult Room and see the process going on. The letters were put into an almirah, in a richly ornamented recess called by some the Shrine. There were some seven of us then present, four of whom were Chelas. These gentlemen, after placing their letters as aforesaid, offered up incense and prostrated themselves according to the Hindu manner of evincing devotion and respect. In about two minutes Madame, who was standing by my side in an attentive attitude, received a psychic telegram, and indicated that the answers had come to hand. The almirah was accordingly opened, and, in place of the letters posted, others were there, enclosed in Tibetan envelopes and written on Tibetan paper. D. K. M. (a Chela of the Master Koot Hoomi) discovered something more than was expected, and exclaimed, Here is a letter from my Master for Mr. Brown! I then received from his hands a memorandum, written with blue pencil and in the following terms: --- Why feel uneasy? Perchance we may yet become friends: I have to thank you for your defence of Esot. Bud. --- K.H. W. T. Brown, B.L., F.T.S. . . .
I need not dwell upon the disappearance of Damodar for several days, for he himself has told us his experience, and in whose company he spent his time (vide Theosophist for January, 1884, pp. 61 and 62), but while he was away I received, by occult means, another letter from his Master. It was enclosed in an envelope, which had been addressed by Madame G--h---, and had come by post from Germany. This was very significant, because it proved to my mind that the Master was aware of the part which Madame G------ had had in bringing me into the light of Theosophy. The writing is the same as usual and the contents are as follows: --- I have pleasure in granting, in part at least, your request. Welcome to the territory of our Kashmir Prince. In truth my native land is not so far away but that I can assume the character of host. You are not now merely at the threshold of Tibet, but also of all the wisdom it contains. It rests with yourself how far you shall penetrate both, one day. May you deserve the blessings of our Chohans. --- K. H.
