Does a theosophist never criticise? part 2

Hallo all,

My views are:

Blasvatsky wrote the following,
which I recently emailed here at Theos-talk.

"To the Readers of 'Lucifer" by Blavatsky, January 1888

"Justice demands that when the reader comes across an article in this magazine which 
does not immediately approve itself to his mind by chiming in with his own peculiar ideas, 
he should regard it as a problem to solve rather than as a mere subject of criticism. Let him 
endeavour to learn the lesson which only opinions differing from his own can teach him. 
Let him be tolerant, if not actually charitable, and postpone his judgment till he extracts 
from the article the truth it must contain, adding this new acquisition to his store. One ever 
learns more from one's enemies than from one's friends; and it is only when the reader has 
credited this hidden truth to Lucifer, that he can fairly presume to put what he believes 
to be the efforts of the article he does not like to the debit account."

So let us consider and keep this view by HPB.
HPB, The one who walked with Master Morya.

So are you learning anything from Criticism?
Answer: Yes! 
But, Criticism without compassion is not good.
I, do think we cam agree upon that.

M. Sufilight with peace and love...
