One of the first, if not the first books I ever read on psychic development. Out of the hundreds of books that I've read on psychic development over the last 40 years, very few, if any, have impacted me the way this one did. In fact, Id be hard pressed to recall the titles and/or the authors names of even ten. I had an original 1916 edition that my father found in an old car. He gave it to me as a 'gag' gift. He lost his sense of humor when he found out I was studying and practicing the the excercises religeously. Mr. Atkinson aka the Swami Panchadasi, was my biggest influence in my passion for Metaphysics. Right up there with my Uncle Chuckie, who's pre-llewellen, Psionics 101, fueled my passion for Mind Science. Thanks to them both, I was and am a Force to be reckoned with.
