Re: Theos-World was promotion of Krishnamurti's teaching a big mistake

Absolutely, I think he has been given such a raw deal by Theosophists who jumped on the Leadbeater/Besant bandwagon.  To this day "Krishnamurti" is whispered about in most Theosophical groups.  He may have been a World Teacher, but he was not the World Teacher the theosophists wanted.
  "All authority of any kind, especially in the field of thought and understanding, is the most destructive, evil thing. Leaders destroy the followers and followers destroy the leaders. You have to be your own teacher and your own disciple. You have to question everything that man has accepted as valuable, as necessary."
  People will argue that I take HPB as an authority, but it is not so, HPB lays out the details and leaves it up to ourselves to accept or reject it.  All the wise ones have done that.
  That got me
  Warm regards

You write, "My personal opinion is that Krishnamurti saw the 
corruption in the TS and wanted no part of it."

Yes indeed. Moreover when he utterred the famous words "The Masters 
are poison" he was referring to the "masters" created by Bishop 
Leadbeater and Dr Besant.

Kind regards

a spiritual impetus, the masters look out across the sea of souls and 
take those souls that glimmer. HPB was the best of a bad bunch but 
capable of doing what the world needed at that time.

cleanse our egos because I am sure he was aware that until this first 
initial step is taken, i.e. control of our ego selves, we will never 
reach higher conscious awareness.

religions, and to uncover, to some extent, the fundamental unity from 
which they all spring; finally, to show that the occult side of 
Nature has never been approached by the Science of modern 
civilization" the two teachings parallel each other.
