Re: The Origin of Annie Besant's Adepthood

Senor Carlos is at it again. This time he is trying to discredit CWL 
by insinuating that CWL had something to do with Annie 
Besant's 'Adepthood' announcement - that CWL was really the 'Origin'. 

In fact, Leadbeater had nothing to do with it at all. The Adepthood 
story was concocted by George Arundell while Leadbeater was in 
Australia. George may have thought it up himself or got it from this 
Wedgwood person. In any case, Leadbeater did not believe the story. 
When Krishnamurthi questioned him about it, Leadbeater said (in so 
many words) that Krishnamurthi was the only Arhat he was aware of 
(that Krishnamurthi was indeed an Arhat has been confirmed by others).

To suggest that CWL was somehow responsible for this sorry episode is 
spreading lies about someone who has done a lot to advance the cause 
of Theosophy albeit by unconventional means. Mr. Carlos needs to read 
his sources more carefully and stop making connections (between 
Leadbeater and Arundell's Adepthood) that don't exist.
