Whilst a young woman, at a pivotal time in her life, Fiona C. Odgren met George. She quickly realized that not only was he to become her spiritual mentor, but also her lifelong partner. During their budding relationship, George placed many reads in front of her and amongst them was "The Mahatma Letters". Life would never be the same again. Insights From the Masters is a compilation of "The Mahatma Letters", a remarkable correspondence that took place between two Masters, Koot Humi and Morya, and two influential British men. The Letters are currently held in the British Library, London, UK. With this compilation the author has taken what she considers to be the most interesting themes regarding esoteric knowledge presented by the Masters and made their teachings more accessible to the public. The Letters contain answers on subjects relating to Birth and Death, truth on After-Life and Reincarnation, Occult Science and Phenomena, Karma and Dharma etc. and all while portraying the unconditional love and humour of these advanced souls. The subjects covered are extensive and cover most of the burning questions of today’s true seeker.

Fiona's enthusiastic and clear writing certainly inspired me to read on further.

Fiona Odgren's compilation is precisely what a western mind needs. As awe-inspiring as the existing formats and presentations of The Mahatma Letters have been, our minds still yearn for conceptual themes to be clustered together nicely.

This book is great!! It is particularly useful to read what the Masters said on specific topics. I found them inspiring. A chapter that really stood out for me was the one on Discipleship. What a wonderful writer you are!! Very intelligently and filled with knowledge. ~ Sue Prescott , MSW, LICSW,
The compilation itself needs no comment. The value is evident in every line. Well done! ~ Ted Davy, Author and Editor of The Canadian Theosophist
