C. W. Leadbeater (1854-1934) was an English born priest-turned-spiritualist and high ranking officer in the Theosophical Society. An associate of Annie Besant, he authored many books and pamphlets on spirituality and the occult, and remains an influential figure in New Age circles.

The Theosophical Society was founded in 1875 with the express purpose of exposing to Western minds the ancient teachings of the East, which had evaded notice in the Western world for many centuries. This uniting of philosophical hemispheres resulted in a great flowering of esoteric consciousness and many now-famous occultists and their works were either directly or indirectly inspired by the philosophy of Theosophy. Its main precepts, however, were contained in the works of Helena P. Blavatsky which are notoriously esoteric and difficult for the lay person to understand. To better expound upon and reveal these teachings, Blavatsky's successor at the Theosophical Society, Annie Besant, wrote a series of pamphlets and essays explaining the somewhat vague and mystical concepts that Blavatsky expressed in her works and in her life. The Adyar Pamphlet series is here republished and displayed that its explanations of the profound wisdom revealed to the world by Madame Blavatsky may find a new home in the minds of the modern world.(Theosophical Publishing House).
