Such letters and Gregory Tilliets biography, which is considered by
many as false and misleading, damaged reputation of Mr. C. W.
Leadbeater. As Annie Besant was co-worker of C. W. Leadbeater, her
image was also tarnished. For more than hundred years Adyar TS is
getting good income by selling books of Mr. C. W. Leadbeater.
Therefore it is duty of Adyar TS to publish good biography of C. W.
Leadbeater, which would give correct picture of Leadbeater's life. It
is a big mistake of Adyar TS not to publish his true biography. Today
Theosophical Society is at such low level because of such mistakes.
