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

Krishnamurti attacked the very concept of Masters, he did not make
distinction between Blavatsky's Master and Leadbeater's Master.
According to Krishnamurti path of occultism does not exist. He does
not make distinction between Blavatsky's path of occultism and
Leadbeater's path of occultism. 
If you do research on Krishnamurti, you will find that he completely
destroyed many major concepts of Blavatsky- concepts like Masters,
path of occultism, importance and role of organizations, study of
books and scriptures.  His statements are exactly opposite of
Blavatsky's policies. So different and opposite, that some thought he
was used by dark powers to attack the Theosophical Society and Theosophy.
