Mr. Hodson wrote close to three hundred
articles for various journals such as The Theosophist, Theosophy in New
Zealand etc. Some of these have been
incorporated into the contents of certain of his books, others stand alone as fascinating glimpses of a seer
in his travels around the world e.g. Impressions of the Giant
Sequoias World Theosophy, June 1932, Occult Research into
Early American Inhabitants, The Theosophist, January 1932, Clairvoyant Observation of the Ceremonial Magic of the Aztecs, Theosophy in
New Zealand, February 1957, An African Witch-Doctor,
Theosophy in New Zealand, December 1955. Many of these articles have been incorporated into a two
volume collection prepared by New Zealand Theosophical students John and Elizabeth Sell

AUDIO-CASSETTE TAPES BY
During his lifetime Mr. Frank Wilson of The
Theosophical Society in Auckland, New Zealand made a comprehensive collection of audio-cassette recordings of
Mr. Hodson’s lectures including talking books of The Pathway to
Perfection, The Supreme Splendour and A Yoga of Light. I also recorded some
sessions myself when I was living in Perth, Western Australia during Mr. Hodson's stay in 1973. Especially
helpful, I find are his workshop tapes on the different forms of yoga, it is fascinating to get a take from
someone who was an accomplished yogi himself - it helps the student to decide where to put their
emphasis. I imagine there are approximately 200+ recorded audio tapes, I have 133 in my own possession,
some of which are duplicates or poor recordings.
It is understood that the collection compiled by Frank Wilson had been sent from the New
Zealand Section to The American Section of The Theosophical Society, apparently for archival purposes.
In addition, several National Sections of The Theosophical Society such as The Australian Section keep
substantial numbers of Mr. Hodson's talks in their audio-tape libraries. Mr. Hodson's major lectures were delivered in a more formal
style than the conversational manner which has come into vogue of recent times. He studied the speeches of
Sir Winston Churchill and a certain similarity can be detected in his presentation. This was not only for the
sake of dramatic impact, but also because in many places that he visited facilities were not at that time
available for amplification, and he felt it to be a courtesy that his audience should be able to hear him
clearly. For the student of spiritual matters the power, compassion and sincerity in Mr. Hodson's voice
(activation of the throat chakram) supports the belief (not confirmed until after his death) that he was
actually an advanced Initiate and therefore also spoke to a great extent on behalf of The Inner Government of
the World as one of their human mouthpieces to humanity - certainly their lavish attention to his lectures
from the inner planes and expressions of appreciation in The Occult
Diary would leave one with this impression. Such people pass our way so seldom that it is
worth retrieving what they have to say from as many sources as possible and audio tapes are a good supplement
to his written material.
VIDEOS BY GEOFFREY
Sadly, very little exists of a video nature in the case of Mr.
Hodson, considering the many thousands of hours of talks he gave during his lifetime. However, we are grateful for
the far-seeing nature of The Theosophical Society in America. When Mr. Hodson spoke there in 1977
they videoed two of his talks entitled Interpretations of the Life and
Teachings of Christ and The Hierarchy of
Earth's Adepts. I am grateful to the American Section for allowing me to use a fifteen
minute extract from the latter in the section entitled The Inner
Government. In this way you can get an idea of the impact and presence of this remarkable
Theosophist, who even towards the end of his life, drew significant audiences whenever he spoke.
