Dear Krsanna,

Yes, we need to understand History in order not
to keep repeating the same mistakes. Thanks.

Subject: Theos-World Role of Esoteric Section after parent society abolished
Date: Tue, 14 Mar 2006 14:04:44 -0000

Abolishing the parent society at Adyar and creating the Esoteric
Section to guide the TS is are key events in Theosophical history that
explains much of the Besant-Leadbeater era. HPB created the Esoteric
Section with W. Q. Judge almost simultaneously with abolishing the
parent society under Olcott's control in 1887-88. Olcott continued at
Adyar as a theosophical society with no authority over other lodges
while HPB placed much hope in the Esoteric Section and appointed Judge
her agent in the ES at the time of her death.

Shortly after HPB's death, Annie Besant attacked Judge and recalled
materials for the Esoteric Section that HPB had distributed for a
classic palace revolt. HPB had placed considerable power in the
Esoteric Section and Besant needed only to dismantle the Esoteric
Section entrusted to Judge to gather back the forces of authority at
Adyar. After attacking Judge, Besant recalled materials HPB
distributed to members of the Esoteric Section and took control of the
new section with her own version of the World Mother and World Teacher
to await "The Coming" with Leadbeater discoursing with The Christ.
The only documentation I have not seen with my own eyes is the
correspondence where Annie Besant recalled the materials HPB had
issued to the Esoteric Section. I have seen HPB's references to the
materials she distributed to members she selected to join the Esoteric

These events are documented in correspondence and documents of the
era. It was a classic palace revolt conducted by an experienced
political activist in Annie Besant.
