Re: WHEN TRUTH IS A LIE

It is unfortunate for modern students that HPB did not reveal 
informatmion given to her Esoteric Section, on whom she relied to 
guide the TS, to Theosophists at large.  Bowen was a member of the 
Esoteric Section and was with HPB during the last weeks of her life.

How would Theosophists know what HPB was teaching the Esoteric 
Section, since their literature was not made public?  Bowen 
mentioned HPB's sense of urgency in teaching the Esoteric Section in 
her last weeks, and a sense of urgency is conveyed in the 
letter, "Why I Do Not Return To India."  

After sending the letter to India to be distributed among 
Indians, "for some reason," it was not distributed by Olcott and 
other leaders of the Indian Section.  This is certainly a measure of 
the opposition in India to Theosophy as HPB taught it.  Bowen, as a 
member of the Esoteric Section with Blavatsky in the last weeks of 
her life, was in a better position to know what she taught the 
Esoteric Section that was not available to other Theosophists.

Carlos, who are these people that are willing to accept as fact the 
whispers of a cabal who opposed HPB and deny the testimony of 
trusted students who stayed with her in the Esoteric Section until 
the end?  What was the motive of those in India that failed to 
distribute her letter to Theosophists in India?

The "take-over" of Blavatsky's Theosophical Society in India was all 
but complete one year before her death.  The persons present 
throughout the dismissal of Blavatsky's importance to Theosophy were 
Olcott and Besant.  

Olcott is the overlooked figure that was continuously involved in 
efforts to undermine HPB's authority, working as he did as a jolly 
good fellow to keep the opposition against HPB off his own back.  
Olcott worked to protect his own rear.  The success of his 
socialable betrayal is seen today in the organizations he left 
behind, which includes the American Section created after HPB's 
death.

Best regards,
Krsanna
