Chuch and Arundale

About past lives -- you may know that George Arundale had a sense of humour.

In the 1930s, he ran for international president in the Adyar TS and defeated his opponent,
Ernest Wood.

The political fight was relatively strong. During the campaign, though, Arundale said:

"But I have several things in common with Ernest Wood, after all. We even happen to have been the same person in our last lives!"

Indeed, both Arundale and Wood thought that in their past lives they had been Ralph W. Emerson.

(Adyar TS history has some interesting pages!)

Also, during his trips around the world, C. Jinarajadasa often had to hear from people that they had had this and that wonderful past life.

One person told C.J. that he had been some extraordinary and famous person, to which C. J. replied (approximately) :

"My condolences! And what happened to you, then, that you have this life now?"

Regards, Carlos.

Are you  sure you were not Socrates in your last?

Nope. We saved that honor for you. I was an inquisitor.  It  was great fun
and I learned a lot that has been useful in this life.
