Dangers on the path (IV)
Feb 26, 2006 03:09 PM
". . . 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.
