Re: Theos-World Delvers after Truth & "Esoteric World of Madame Blavatsky"

If the stories of the first meeting of Annie Besant and HPB are accurate, you appear to be in the camp of HPB, who instructed AB to go read the negative charges, and then if she still wanted to join the Society, it was up to her. As I understand it, you wish people to read both sides, while others want people to only read the good, and to destroy any negative material. Perhaps it is a cultural difference of opinion, for those who do not have English as their frist language? Are these practices different in different cultures, or in different countries?

Delvers after Truth & "Esoteric World of Madame Blavatsky"

". . . . none but the logician, the investigator, the dauntless
explorer should meddle with books like this. Such delvers
after truth have the courage of their opinions." H.P. Blavatsky,

In regards to Carlos Aveline's comments about the accounts by
Coulomb and Hodgson in my book, "The Esoteric World of Madame
Blavatsky," I firmly believe that readers should see what the
charges against HPB actually were, ESPECIALLY since many of the
other accounts by "friendly" witnesses in my book refer to these
charges, and even make comments about the charges, etc.

I saw no good reason to hide the "negative" accounts from readers.
One might conclude from his various comments that Mr. Aveline
doesn't want readers to read these accounts for themselves and come
to their own conclusions.
