Context and background

This card is to introduce Mohini Chatterjee, one of the Indian chelas. Mohini, as he was usually called, was a native of Calcutta of the Brahman caste and a descendant of Ram Roy, a well-known reformer of Hinduism.

There is no way of knowing precisely what Mohini’s “mission” to Sinnett was, but that it concerned the end of the cycle referred to several times in these letters in the fall of 1882 seems indicated. This end of the cycle was the completion of the first seven years of the Theosophical Society.
