This collection of articles on varied and unusual subjects by a brilliant young Brahman scholar, lawyer, mystic and occultist, is a mine of information. The author, Swami T. Suba Row, was born in 1856 and during the brief years before his death in 1890, he not only wrote these articles but also gave a series of lectures at the annual convention of the Theosophical Society, later published as Philosophy of the Bhagavad-gita.
In his early years, Subba Row did not show any exceptional sign of mystical knowledge, but in his twenties knowledge welled up from within. 'It was as though a storehouse of occult experience, long forgotten, had been suddenly opened to him.'
In this book, the reader will find fascinating information about the Twelve Signs of Zodiac, the Age of Lord Buddha's Death, Nadigrantham-s, Hatha Yoga, the mystic significance of Indian places of pilgrimage and many other occult and recondite subjects. It will prove to be an asset for students of mystical philosophy.
