Very interesting indeed. I understand that in the early days the TS
was referred to by one of the Adepts as a 'training ground',
probably with brotherhood as the core subject matter. Those who have
tried are probably aware that working together can be one of the
thoughest tests a human being can go through. The mere possibility
of it seems to release a thousand inner ghosts from solitary
confinement! And yet, as the Upanishad-s very well say, there is no
other path to go. Life brings relationships and situations into our
lives literally every minute. We may imagine we can escape them, but
they just keep coming.
It has been said that in Kali Yuga there are greater opportunities
to progress towards Self-knowledge than in previous eras, and the
apparent reason for this is that in this age karmic responses are
swifter than in other ages. Thus every contact, every relationship,
becomes a mirror in which we can see ourselves.
Is the TS a Kali Yuga society?
