Charles Webster Leadbeater

   Charles Webster Leadbeater was a well-known clairvoyant and theosophist who dedicated his life to the dissemination of Theosophy. He left his position as a clergyman in the Church of England in 1884, travelling with Madame Helena Blavatsky to India to help her in her work for the Theosophical Society. He was accepted as a chela (disciple) by Mahatma K.H., one of HPBs Adept-Teachers, in a letter (part two) written by him to the young Leadbeater while the latter was still in England.

   His investigations into the unseen dimensions of life have had a far-reaching influence on the contemporary world, one of them being the discovery of the young J. Krishnamurti on the Adyar beach in Madras, India, in 1909, who would later become one of the most respected and insightful spiritual teachers of the twentieth century.

   This website makes available aspects of CWLs vast literary output as well as some biographical information, including the charges against him, his work for the Theosophical Society and the Liberal Catholic Church. Also included are a comprehensive list of his books, written over a period of several decades, plus a number of photographs, rare archival material and key testimonies, by those who knew and worked with him, about his life, his character and his helpfulness.
