In the final chapter of our series on the occult guru Helena Petrovna Blavatsky we look at her surprising move to India and the scandal that ultimately destroyed her reputation. After being publicly called out as a fraud Blavatsky's Theosophical Society never really regained it's prestige. But how legitimate were the accusations that were leveled against the so-called "mother of the occult"? Tune in and find out how Thomas Edison, a mysterious hole in a wall, and Ghandi all play a role in the story.

What a fantastic end to the series. Loved it. Was very surprised to find out that the Theosophical Society ended up setting up their HQ in a place half an hour away from my current residence in Chennai. Definitely going to give their campus a visit. Truly enchanted to spend time with such a lovely host and his well-researched content.
