Commentary on Meetings with Remarkable Men

Commentary by Terry Winter Owens first issued by University Books in their Mystic Arts Book News Number 82 [1965]. "It is an adventure of the mind—growing, being formed, setting out after inner knowledge, discovering it and putting it to the test of practice. Thus it is an adventure in two worlds, and it will be the reader's delight and enrichment to discern where one world ends and the other begins."
