Max Heindel, known as the greatest western mystic of the twentieth century, was born on July 23rd, 1865, of the royal family of Von Grasshoffs, who were connected with the German Court during the lifetime of Prince Bismark.

He was vice-president of the Theosophical Society of Los Angeles in 1904 and 1905 but due to a period of illness, he gave up the position and on his recovery he undertook a lecture tour, which eventually led him to Germany.

In 1907, he was approached by an Elder Brother of the Rosicrucian Order and was asked to join. This Elder Brother gave Max Heindel instruction how to reach the Temple of the Rose Cross, in Germany. At this Temple Max Heindel spent a little over one month in direct communication with and under the personal instructions of the Elder Brothers, who imparted to him the greater part of the teachings contained in "The Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception". The first draft of this, his first book, was made while he was in the Temple. Apparently, the heavy psychic atmosphere of Germany was particularly adapted to the communication of mystical thought to the consciousness of the canididate.

He returned to America in the spring of 1909 where he at once started to formulate the Rosicrucian message which he had received from the Elder Brothers. This was given to the world in the form of a book entitled "The Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception", which is said to be "a masterpiece of mystical literature".

Max Heindel died in 1919.
