At first pulling references from Hindu and Buddhist myths and beliefs [which I enjoyed], the author, while clearly an intelligent and literate person, presents eye-rollingly naive arguments as credibility.

Sinnett thought were likely to be interested in Theosophy. Sinnett desired that Mr. Leadbeater should deliver an address to the Lodge. Here I can well quote the description which he himself has given of his training in Clairvoyance, which enabled him to make a scientific investigation of the phenomena of the Astral Plane.
