You are not reading the messages by Dallas
Tenbroeck on the issue of
"The Theosophy Company".

Please to so.

Meditate about them.

Perceive the peace among all beings.

Go beyond words.

It will do good to you.

Best regards,  Carlos.

You write:

I have questioned the responsible people at Adyar
TS, starting with Betty Bland, who obviously have
an influence onver TPH, about the Annie Besant
"Secret Doctrine". When I have the time I may write
to the TPH itself.

But Carlos just as you live in Brazil, Betty Bland lives
in the USA.  Why write to her?  What "influence" does she
really have over the policies of the Adyar TS and its publishing arm.
Have you written directly to Radha Burnier or John Algeo, the top
officials of the Adyar TS?

But since you refer to "the Annie Besant 'Secret Doctrine'", unless
I am not properly informed this edition hasn't been published for
many years and right now the only edition of the SD published by the
Adyar TS (or by its publishing houses) is the Boris de
Zirkoff/Collected Writings edition.

But as far as I know the "tampered" edition of THE VOICE OF THE
SILENCE issued by the Theosophy Company is still being sold thru the
catalog division of Theosophy Company and by local lodges of the
ULT. About a month ago I was in San Diego and saw a copy of said
version being sold by the local lodge of the ULT.

You also write:

What about you, Daniel?  Did you question "The Theosophy
Company" about the issue you are raising?  When was it?

Since Dallas TenBroeck is (or at least was a few years ago)
a director on the board that governs the Theosophy Company,
I have several times conveyed my concerns about the tampered
Voice edition to Dallas and asked him to bring this matter up
to the board of directors.

But as far as I know, this edition is still being sold and no notice
has been added stating the true facts about said edition.

Carlos, you also write:

If you did not raise the issue to them yet, why are you  raising it
to me now?  I do not live in Los Angeles. I live inm Brazil.  And,
besides  and I am not the diretor of "The Theosophy Co."  Then,
write to them, please, and you shall have your due answer.

Carlos, you are the one who feels strongly about the issue of
tampering with HPB's original writings.  Witness your letter to
Betty Bland in which you give examples of what Adyar TS has done.

And since you wrote on Theos-Talk that you are now an associate of
the ULT, I simply wondered if you were aware of the tampering in the
Theosophy Company's edition of the VOICE.  And if you were aware of
this tampering, do you approve or disapprove of this tampering?

And since you were motivated enough to write Betty Bland about this
tampering issue, are you motivated enough to write the Theosophy
Company and ask them to publicly acknowledge their mistake, etc.?

Unfortunately, over the years I have found a number of ULT
associates who are quite critical and vocal about what the Adyar TS
may or may not have done concerning HPB's writings but they ignore
what the ULT and/or the Theosophy Company has done concerning HPB's
writings.  I can only conclude that they have a double standard.

In other words, for whatever reasons, they have a partisan view of
the matter.

This is unfortunate because it clouds the real issues especially for
inquirers and beginners in Theosophy.

So yes, my interest in this issue is authentic. Is your interest
authentic, too?

I am also going to forward these several postings to Betty Bland so
that she will have a fuller appreciation of the issues involved and
what your whole approach is to this issue of tampering, etc.
