LETTERS - in chronological order
Publisher's note from "The Way of the
Saints": The Master began issuing this
extraordinary series of circular letters shortly after his
First World Tour,and continued, at greater or lesser
intervals, until three months before his death. These
circulars were unlike his books or his talks, or even his
letters to individual dispiples; they really were 'circular
letters', that is, letters to every one of his disciples at
once, conveying whatever he considered of the first importance
at the time. Consequently, they have an intimacy and immediacy
not found in his books or public talks, yet are relevant to
the needs of all his disciples
PDFs marked PDF* are early copies of these documents
