"You may  and ought to be  kind to and lenient with an insane 
person.  But not even for the sake of a kindness have you the right 
to keep back your religion, and allow him even for one twinkling of 
the eye to believe you are a Christian or that you may be one.  You 
have to make once for ever your choice  either your duty to the 
Lodge or your own personal ideas."  (Narayan, Adept who worked with 
HPB when she was writing "Isis Unveiled" and "The Secret Doctrine")

This letter is especially interesting Theos-talk discussion because 
in 1885 T. Subba Row and C.W. Leadbeater visited Narayan where he 
lived outside Madras.  (Reference to this is the "Foreword" to 
letter 24 in "Letters From The Masters Of The Wisdom, Second Series" 
by C. Jinarajadasa.)  The incident that prompted this letter is not 
recorded anywhere, but it is the only letter received in that 
particular script that HPB identified as Narayan's.  A letter from 
Narayan in 1882 was published in the "Theosophist."
