Context and background

Mr. Jinarajadasa provided this background information:

Received probably on September 28, 1881, when he saw a materialization of his Master at Crow’s Nest.

“Ramaswami” was his ordinary name, Iyer being the Brahminical caste ending. He had a secret name given to him at his “thread ceremony” which was Rama Bhadra, and it is by this sacred name he is here addressed as Rama B.[2]

Physical description of letter

Mr. Jinarajadasa wrote of the Ramaswamier letters:

I do not know where the original letters are now. He died in 1893, devoted as ever to his Master and the T.S..[3]

Publication history

Mr. Jinarajadasa wrote of the Ramaswamier letters:

In December, 1894, a son of his published the letters, with a facsimile of one of them, in an attack on the T.S. , which bore the title, "Isis Further Unveiled." I reprint the letters from this pamphlet.[4]
