No other book is quite like this private collection of letters. Preserved in the British Library, they were written between 1880 and 1884 to Alfred Percy Sinnett, editor of a leading Anglo-Indian newspaper, The Pioneer. His correspondents were two Mahatmas whom H.P. Blavatsky acknowledged as her teachers and the inspirers of her Isis Unveiled and The Secret Doctrine.
First published in 1923, this primary source book is filled with philosophical and ethical instruction, revealing not only farreaching concepts of religious and scientific thought (since proven in large degree prophetic), but also practicality, warmth of heart, patience, and ripeness of humor.
Many popular but fictitious ideas of would-be esotericists are exploded by a sound and human approach to natural law; and serious thinkers not content with orthodoxy will find a satisfying explanation of foundation-truths underlying the great religions.
The light these letters throw on the early history of the modern theosophical movement enables the reader to gain a clearer understanding of H.P. Blavatsky and The Theosophical Society. The Mahatmas’ aim was not to found “a college for the special study of occultism” but to foster a real universal fraternity:
The term “Universal Brotherhood” is no idle phrase. Humanity in the mass has a paramount claim upon us,… It is the only secure foundation for universal morality. If it be a dream, it is at least a noble one for mankind: and it is the aspiration of the true adept. - 17

“The Masks of Odin” opens up a time capsule which has been sealed for ages, revealing the knowledge of a remote antiquity when science, philosophy, and religion were one. Herein the Norse Edda is scrutinized and its tales of gods and heroes, elves and dwarfs are decoded, using Theosophical keys, to yield an overview of cosmic cycles of life on many levels of the World Tree. The myths contain ribald humor as well as grand inspiration. Elsa-Brita Titchenell’s commentary and her fresh translation of the Poetic or Elder Edda provide a key to understanding the timeless wisdom of the bards of antiquity.
