The book is called "Teachings of the Temple" published by the
Temple of the People in Halcyon, CA.

yougread it? Col. Olcott mentions in passing in ~Old Diary
Leaves~gthat HPB smoked Turkish tobacco, which is quite potent
but stillgjust tobacco and more characteristically gives off
carbons rathergthan ozone.

I believe that the ozone smoking story is in a book called
"Letters of Helena Roerich" published in the U.S. by the Agni
Yoga Society -- however the letters are orginally in Russian and
some people I've talked to have indicated that the english
translation is imperfect.
