"Swami Panchadasi, a.k.a. William Walker Atkinson, was an attorney, businessman, occultist, and New Thought pioneer. The twenty lessons in psychic development contained in Clairvoyance & Occult Powers are as relevant today as they were when they were written, a hundred years ago. Swami Panchadasi is just one of many, many pseudonyms used by Atkinson. Clint Marsh, in his introduction to the book, attempts to unravel the tapestry of smokescreens created by Atkinson about his life and work, telling us that, among other things, Atkinson is most likely the author of The Kybalion. Atkinson's prolific output helped to spawn a steady stream of motivational;prosperity authors that leads all the way forward to Ronda Byrne and Esther and Jerry Hicks.Atkinson was ahead of his time in writing for an audience with shortened attention spans and for those seeking personal experience of the transcendental as opposed to hierarchical religious practice. Many of the books penned by Atkinson as Yogi Ramacharaka are still popular in New Age circles., and don't forget Marsh's The Mentalist's Handbook when looking for display ideas."
