The late C.C. Zain (Elbert Benjamine), one of the most prolific astrological writers of the 20th century, wrote over 50 books and thousands of magazine articles. A scholar, who mastered every physical science of his time, he brought this same vigor to his exploration of the metaphysical sciences.
Born a natural psychic and seer, as a youngster his heightened awareness brought him into contact with those who had passed from this plane to the next. In some cases he was able to counsel those in need of adjustment to their new living conditions — both here and on the next plane. In the autumn of 1898, he began his esoteric studies. By 1900 he had contacted The Brotherhood of Light and began serious study of astrology. In the spring of 1910 he gave his promise to write the 21 Brotherhood of Light courses.
From that time until his death, he devoted his energy and personal resources to writing the lessons and to establishing the vehicle for disseminating The Brotherhood of Light teachings — The Church of Light.
The scope of his work is so vast that the impact of his influence is perhaps little understood at the present. However, as the Aquarian Age consciousness evolves, his genius will become more widely understood. It is no wonder that students world-wide are benefiting from Brotherhood of Light Home Study Courses and that his works continue to be in great demand.
