Wednesday June 3rd 7:00 PM in Southampton PA – Ed Abdill Debuts Acclaimed New Book Masters of Wisdom

Southampton PA May 31st 2015 — In the late nineteenth century, Russian noblewoman and occult philosopher Madame H.P. Blavatsky enthralled the world with revelations of an ancient “secret doctrine” behind the major faiths and a cosmic theology that united the insights of religion and science.

Blavatsky said she was operating under the guidance of hidden Masters of wisdom, or mahatmas, who led her to reveal forgotten wisdom to modern people.

The mythos of Blavatsky’s Masters left a deep mark on Western culture and spawned more than a century of debate: Were the Masters real? What did they teach? Are they reachable today?

Now, independent scholar of religion Edward Abdill provides an authoritative, historically reliable, and delightfully readable study of the background and ideas of the Masters – in particular highlighting their message and its enduring relevance.

Who are the Masters of Wisdom? In his new book Ed Abdill brings them to life, shattering misconceptions, allowing them to speak from their letters revealing who they are. In their own words they present some of their most important teachings on death, reincarnation, karma and science.

A book signing will follow the program.
