The story of Sensa, as told with marvelous and mystic art in The Idyll of the White Lotus contains within itself three narratives, separate yet inseparable, united in their very nature and essence, as are the three leaflets of the trefoil clover. They cannot be taken apart, but they can be looked upon separately and in each is contained something vital which appeals to the deepest part of the human nature within ourselves.
No student of occultism who has once read this Idyll and penetrated within any part of its mystic veil, can forget it or be parted from it, because it relates his own story, the tragedy and ultimate apotheosis of his own soul, and is therefore an essential part of himself. Mabel Collins was a writer of popular occult novels, a fashion writer and an anti-vivisection campaigner. She was a theosophist and author of over 46 books.
