Pedro is right once more in quoting the Mahatma Letters and H.P.B.
We should all thank him for that (see below).

Yet things are not always mechanical, especially in the spiritual path, where appearances
and the dead letter of formality are most often astutely used as a dirty curtain to hide truth.

For instance,when Leadbeater came back to London, after being in India
and in Ceylon, he was sometimes referred to by the Old Lady as "W. C. Leadbeater". And,
of course, he was never admitted to her Esoteric School as long as she lived.

Hypocrites, never real occultists, use false courtesy as an excuse to justify their lies.

Gregory Tillett writes in his illuminating biography of C.W.L., "The Elder Brother":

"One is led to wonder why H.P.B. herself seems to have had no time for Leadbeater after his return from Ceylon. She did not admit him to her own Esoteric Section of the Theosophical Society, and it is said that she would refer to him, when is a less charitable mood, as 'W.C. Leadbeater'. Certainly he was completely absent from H.P.B.'s circle between his return to England in 1889 and her death in 1891. From being a rising star, sacrificing all to follow H.P.B. to India at the Master's instructions, a "chela" of whom she had such high hopes, he was now relegated to the supporting role of a small fish in a large esoteric pond. His work in Ceylon was ignored, the psychic powers which he said he had gained whilst at Adyar were unacknowledged, and his contacts with the Master unrecognized -- except, of course, by Sinnett who employed him as a medium for contact with the Master, physical letters having ceased to appear. The messages received from [... the Master] via Leadbeater conflicted strangely with the teachings of the same Master given out by H.P.B." (1)

In fact, Leadbeater was NOT in a supporting role, though. He was taking a leading part in the nursery and origin of all subsequent illusions and mayavic ideations which would lead the largest of theosophical organizations astray along 20th century. HPB was very frank in her criticism of those mediumnistic pseudo-contacts with the Mahatmas.

Best regards, Carlos.

According to Madame Blavatsky, the following advice was received by
her from a Master. It is included at the end of the text "The
Original Programme of The Theosophical Society".

"Theosophy must not represent merely a collection of moral verities,
a bundle of metaphysical Ethics epitomized in theoretical
dissertations. Theosophy must be made practical, and has, therefore,
to be disencumbered of useless discussion . . . It has to find
objective expression in an all-embracing code of life thoroughly
impregnated with its spirit -- the spirit of mutual tolerance,
charity and love. Its followers have to set the example of a firmly
outlined and as firmly applied morality before they get the right to
point out, even in a spirit of kindness, the absence of a like ethic
Unity and singleness of purpose in other associations and
individuals. As said before -- no Theosophist should blame a brother
whether within or outside of the association, throw slur upon his
actions or denounce him {It is in consequence of this letter that
Art. XII was adopted in Rules and a fear of lacking the charity
prescribed, that led so often to neglect its enforcement.} lest he
should himself lose the right of being considered a theosophist.
Ever turn away your gaze from the imperfections of your neighbour
and centre rather your attention upon your own shortcomings in order
to correct them and become wiser . . . Show not the disparity
between claim and action in another man but -- whether he be brother
or neighbour -- rather help him in his arduous walk in life . . ."
