Dangers on the path (IV)

". . . A new and rapidly growing danger. . . is threatening . . . the spread of the pure 
Esoteric Philosophy and knowledge. . . . I allude to those charlatanesque imitations of 
Occultism and Theosophy. . . . "

"By pandering to the prejudices of people, and especially by adopting the false ideas of a 
personal God and a personal, carnalized Saviour, as the groundwork of their teaching, the 
leaders of this 'swindle' (for such it is) are endeavoring to draw men to them and in 
particular to turn Theosophists from the true path."

". . . A close examination will assuredly reveal. . . materials largely stolen . . . from 
Theosophical writings. . . [and] distorted and falsified so as to be palmed off on the 
unwary as revelations of new and undreamed of truths. But many will neither have the time 
nor the opportunity for such a thorough investigation; and before they become aware of 
the imposture they may be led far from the Truth."

". . . Nothing is more dangerous to Esoteric Truth than the garbled and distorted versions 
disfigured to suit the prejudices and tastes of men in general." 

Blavatsky, H.P. E.S. Instruction No. I., 1889.
