Robert Crosbie & the DES: Observations & Questions

In light of what Gregory Tillet wrote today at:

"ULT in The attic"

and at:


the following observations and questions remain relevant:


Robert Crosbie took the original pledge sent by H.P.Blavatsky not to 
discuss or reveal the E.S.T.S. instructions and papers to non-
members. He reaffirmed that pledge again in 1891 when Judge and 
Besant took charge of the Esoteric School.  

Yet in 1909 --- years after the death of both Blavatsky and Judge, 
and after his relationship with Mrs. Tingley and her Esoteric School 
had ended, --- Mr. Crosbie decided to form a "secret society" 
called "Dzyan Esoteric School". 

He also decided to issue reprints of all of Blavatsky's and Judge's 
esoteric instructions to new people.

It is clear that H.P.B. issued the esoteric instructions at the 
direction of the Masters under an oath of silence and secrecy. But 
years after the deaths of both H.P.B. and Judge, who gave Robert 
Crosbie the direction to reissue H.P.B.'s esoteric instructions to 
new students?  

Who gave Mr. Crosbie permission to disregard and ignore his original 
pledges & offer these same esoteric instructions to new students?  

During the first two decades of the twentieth century, did Mr. 
Crosbie believe he was in contact with Blavatsky, Judge and the 
Mahatmas and that he had received their permission and blessing both 
(1) to start the Dzyan Esoteric School and also (2) to reissue 
H.P.B.'s esoteric instructions?

In other words, did Mr Crosbie believe that he was following in the 
esoteric footsteps of Blavatsky and Judge?
