Carlos, I will respond to your latest message within the body of the message.
))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))Carlos, you said:
First of all, I did not mention that you could comment on the TSA with an
intention of being ironical.
I respect you and if we had differences of visions in the past -- my
'memory' for personal disagreements erases such past events almost as soon as they
*****************You have misread my intention. I was not being ironical, or
sarcastic. I was merely telling you about my present situation at the TS.
Since I no longer work at headquarters, I am not privvy to what I used to be
privvy to.................We never have had differences of visions in the past,
that is your supposition. I respect your passion for theosophy and I respect
your knowledge about theosophy. I sincerely hope that you will do better when
you publish a book or article and that you will not be judged unfairly or
unduly criticized for your efforts.
As to Algeo's work being slanderous, I am based in the facts as he himself
states them in his edition of the so-called "HPB Letters"
............I believe that he uses the small word "may" when he refers to
some of the letters.........there is some attempt to disclaim or distance
himself from the obvious difficulties he publishes about.-----------------------
Acording to the informations Algeo himself provides, some 20 per cent of the
"letters" he publishes in that volume cannnot be traced to HPB, but their
origin is basically V. Solovyov, id est, a criminal liar as everyone knows, a
slanderer called by H. S. Olcott "fifty times worse than the Coulombs" ("Old
Diary Leaves"). Other false letters are traced to the clever persons of the
London SPR in the 19th century,whose bias and frauds have been revealed by
Vernon Harrison, Leslie Price and other SPR members in the 1980s.
Having worked for ten years with an NGO on environmental law enforcement,
including in the ecosystems themselves, I am used to work with evidences. I
will try to bring more facts here of the unhappy and unfortunate "work" done by
.................Other evidences would be welcomed, since so far I do not
believe that Algeo has deliberately slandered anyone. Publishing letters written
by others, slanderers or not, does not indicate his own beliefs, nor does it
indicate that he agrees with the published letters. Just because there can
be found FACTS does not necessarily indicate TRUTH.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
end of my comments..............and you continue:
And I do that not only because you asked me to do so. I do that because I
hope that, if Algeo will ever publish a SECOND volume of "Letters of HPB", he
will improve his work; and, if he will ever publish a second edition of that
first volume with "Letters of HPB -- False and True", he will correct some of
his more slanderous editorial practices.
As you know, Radha Burnier agreed with me that those Letters are "obviously
spurious" (her words). And the first national secretary of the Adyar TS in
Brazil (not the "president") wrote a letter to Algeo with her protests over the
Among several other persons from several countries.
I have nothing to say about John Algeo as a person. But his editorial
practice has been treacherous and I would be happy to see it corrected by himself.
Peaceful regards, Carlos Cardoso Aveline.
