Re: RE: 1906 Controversy Sources

John,

An interesting book, the one by JOsephine Ranson, as "The Judge Case", by E. Pelletier, "The Thesophical Movement" *(The Theosophy Co.), "The Elder Brother", by G. Tillett, and others.

The reason to examine the mistakes of the theosophical movement is not in search-for-power or love for making accusations.

The reason is that, as we learn from our mistakes, we stop repeating them.

And Adyar is not "separated" from us.

Now, when people say that Theosophy is just words, so that the Ethics of Theosophists is of no importance, this is absolutely not true.

Best regards, Carlos.

Carlos and others,
In regard to Dr. Tilletts reference to Ransom's Book on Theosophy I would
like say her book was a moving read to me it very much impressed me when I
first read it back in the 1970's. What I found especially informative in her
book were not the negative connotations and disagreements so often bought to the
fore today. Rather in her work she devoted very considerable space to
informing her readers of the bright illuminating Light of Theosophy in Mother India
through telling us of the many "Orphanages" sponsored and created by Theosophy
to succor the waifs and castaways that crowd the streets there. She also in
her book tells us of the many "nursing and care centers" set up and sponsored by
Theosophy in India and the "schools" that were created there by Theosophy. I
often wondered why of all the things people could be pointing to tell people
what value Theosophy was in India it seems they always manage to overlook Ms.
Ransom's and her diligent manifold positive reports of the "Good Works" of
Theosophy. I encourage all to get a copy and read it.

John
