Dear Krsanna,

I also have a general, unfortunately vague recollection that there are dedicated HPB students who doubt not only the authenticity of the Bowen Notes, but also the authenticity of her Diagram of Meditation.

Yet this is not a big deal. Examining both texts we will see both are consistent with H.P.B.'s writings.

The Bowen Notes but stress and underline some basic points she had made in several places, the Three Fundamental Propositions above all.

I would say the same as to the 1900 Letter, which is rather similar to the so-called and fundamental "Letter from the Maha-Chohan" (in fact it is but a report on the Maha-Chohan's view of the TS).

And the 1900 Letter also anticipates all the mistakes A. Besant would do in the following 33 years: that why its main sentences were kept hidden and censored by A. Besant, C. Jinarajadasa and their successors.

I guess the tendency to reject there three documents may be associated to a feeling that "everything which comes from Adyar is, in principle, false". There are strong reasons for such a feeling, of course, but whenever possible things should be examined case-by-case and CONTENTS of documents should be evaluated to see if they are consistent or not with the HPB/Masters teaching.

I am not saying that the origin these documents is authentic; I am saying that their content is consistent with their being possibly authentic. And the content, and the usefulness of things, is often more important than their outward form or origin.

Best regards, Carlos.

Bart -- I'm surprised that you would settle for casting doubt but
not proving.  Let me know when you find something definitive.

Best regards,
Krsanna
