Agasha Temple of Wisdom, Inc.

The Agasha Temple of Wisdom is a Spiritualist church that, during its first generation, was built around the mediumship of Rev. Richard Zenor (1911-1978), a channel for the master teacher Agasha. The temple was founded in 1943 and attained some degree of fame after reporter James Crenshaw wrote sympathetically about it in his book Telephone Between Two Worlds. Toward the end of Zenor's life, an attempt was made to compile the more important discourses of Agasha in several volumes edited by William Eisen. Two years after Zenor's death, Rev. Geary Salvat, also a channel, was chosen to succeed him. Salvat channels the master teacher Ayuibbi Tobabu.

Both Agasha and Ayuibbi Tobabu have articulated what they consider a universal philosophy based on the acceptance of individual responsibility and a spiritual democracy within the larger context of universal laws. Basic laws include the Golden Rule (Do unto others as you would have them do unto you) and the law of compensation (For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction). The temple is headquartered at 7525 Fall-brook Ave., West Hills, CA 91307. It has several centers in the United States and one in Japan.
