Dear Friends in Theos-talk,


The Coulomb’s and Solovyof’s Libels:



For several years now, the Adyar Esoteric School and the Adyar TS leaders in India have been doing nothing while “editors” like John Algeo and Daniel Caldwell try to incorporate into the theosophical literature the worst libels and lies created by the Coulombs and by Mr. Solovyof against H.P.B. (1)

For some reason, Adyar TS people in India seem to have forgotten that H.P.B. was the founder of the theosophical movement and of the Esoteric School.

If you make an effort to clarify their position, perhaps you can get a personal letter from Mrs. Radha Burnier accepting the fact that those false letters ascribed to H.P.B. are “obviously spurious” – and kindly telling you that she considers herself free from any responsibility as to publishing those “theosophical” libels against the Messenger.

What is the meaning of such a thing? In fact, time is cyclic and this situation in Adyar is far from being entirely new.

When these very same forgeries and libels first appeared during the 1880s, H.P. Blavatsky had something to say about the Adyar leaders’ position in that occasion – an occasion, by the way, which was essentially similar to the one we live now, although everything was much more dramatic in those crucial times.

In a letter to A. P. Sinnett, H.P.B. asked herself:

“”Why should my best friends allow me to be so vilified!”” (2)

And then she commented:

““While my enemies tear me to pieces the Adyar people play at ‘hide and seek’ – they pretend to be dead – Oh! the poor miserable cowards!! (...) I tell you I suffer more from theosophical ‘traitors’ than from the Coulomb, Patterson or even the S.P.R.”” (3)

I wish I could say the situation has improved since the 1880s.

It hasn’t, so far. But I hope it can still improve – and I add; the sooner the better.

Best regards, Carlos Cardoso Aveline, from Brazil.
