From the Introduction

In the course of my teaching and lecturing in universities and other institutions, I have discovered during the past decade or more an increasing interest in the concept of karma.

1921. This volume, presented in a question and answer format, is intended to be a primer for students of Theosophy. The material collected here is drawn from over seventy books and pamphlets, mainly the works of the wonderful occultist, C.W. Leadbeater, and the famous President of the Theosophical Society, Mrs. Annie Besant.
