SUBJECT: A Koot Hoomi Letter for Damodar brought by Master Morya in 
his Apparitional Form

Damodar K. Mavalankar
April 19, 1883.
Adyar, Madras, India,

Last night was a memorable one. As usual, Narasimhalu Chetty and 
myself were seated on a chair quite close to Mme. Blavatsky's
bed, fanning her and talking together, so as gradually to induce 
sleep in her. . . . 

Suddenly Mme. B. gave a start and exclaimed, "I feel Him." 
She enjoined on us strictly not to leave our places, nor to get 
excited, but remain where we were, without moving an inch, one way or 
the other, and be perfectly calm and quiet. Suddenly she asked for 
our hands and the right hand of each of us was held by her. Hardly 
two minutes had elapsed since then, and we saw Him coming from the 
screen-door of Mme. B.'s bed-room and approaching her. The door
is perfectly movable and in an open place, as we ourselves moved it 
immediately afterwards for more air. His manner of walking was so 
gentle that not a footstep, not the slightest sound, was audible; nor 
did He appear to move, by His gestures. It was only the change of 
position that made us see He had come nearer and nearer. He stood 
exactly opposite Mme. B. - not quite an arm's length from us. We
were on this side of the bed; He on the other. You know I have seen 
Him often enough to enable me to recognise Him at once. He then bent 
over the bed . . . . 

His usual long white coat, the peculiar Pagri as in 
the portrait you have, long black hair flowing over the broad 
shoulders, and long beard - were as usual striking and picturesque. 
He was standing near a door the shutters of which were open. Through 
these the lamp-light, and through the windows which were all open, 
the moonlight, were full upon Him. And we being in the dark, i.e., 
having no light on our eyes - we being turned against the windows 
through which the moonlight came - could see distinctly and clearly. 
He held and put His hands twice over Mme. B.'s head. She then 
stretched out her hand which passed through His - a fact proving that 
what we saw was a Mayavi Rupa, although so vivid and clear as to give 
one the impression of a material physical body. She immediately took 
the letter from His hands. It crumpled, as it were, and made a sound. 
He then waved His hands towards us, walked a few steps, inaudibly and 
imperceptibly as before, and disappeared! . . . 

Mme. B. then handed the letter to me, as it was intended for me. It 
was addressed, To my revered Master. On the envelope were the 
words, "Through favour of M," meaning of course that your venerated 
Guru was kind enough to bring it in person. Inside were instructions 
from my revered Guru [Koot Hoomi] how to answer it. Never shall I 
forget last night's experience; So clear, vivid and tangible it
