Does Carlos or Bruce or Ernest believe Mrs. Besant
was in contact and/or communication with the Master Morya?
There is at least one GOOD piece of evidence which can
help us to answer that question....
If I may interject, in one of the 1912-1913 issues of The Theosophist,
(forgive me, if I forget which one, it has been over 25 years since I saw it)
there was a commentary by George Arundale that since Mrs. Besant was in constant
contact with the Masters, everything that she said should be regarded as
coming from them. He was roundly condemned in the correspondence section of the
next issue for that, but the fact that he was willing to say such a thing,
given his closeness to Mrs. Besant, is a pretty good indicator that she actually
believed that and was using him to float the idea and be the lightning rod
if it did not fly.
As to actual contact, I think she was only in contact with her imagination.
