Some of the material have seen and read before, hence there are not
much too find on the web on this matter, except from NA own pages
and those from various anti-cult groups. I have read al the
materials under the links, as well as those you mailed me. I can't
say that I still know, or really have any opinion about Livrage`s
and Sri Ram's relation. Words against words. If NA is right, way are
they not publish the letters, so every one can see and read about
the claimed close relation (of Livrage`s and Sri Ram's). Or if Adyar
can prove that they are right, do the same and every interested can
see for one self that ton in the letter/letters don't indicate any
close relation, as the NA is saying it was. Of course, this is easy
for me too say, but this is how I think one way too solving it could
I most say, that this question was not for I have a large interest
in Livrage, his ideas or his organisation, but hence NA looks too be
an growing movement, "recreating" people from the Theosophical
Movement and is in several way "doctrinal close" too Theosophy (the
same relation as too Anthroposophy, I believe one can say).
Therefore I think it's important too know at lest some, and
especially some backgrounds about the controversies.
