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

   The Non-dual  Adwaita is more demanding than dualist systems but it can be approached and realized with sufficient effort in one's current life, not as a continuous state of course. This is an example of what I was indicating in previous posts. In order to know what is possible it behooves that a survey be performed to some depth and understanding. All too often isolation to only Theosophical direct content limits severely a knowledge even of what Blavatsky points to herself which is the teachings of the Brothers and Adepts. When I read her extolling the "Sweet Singers of History" I wanted to know exactly what she referred too. It was the Mahayana Ch'an of the No. China School. What was it that was their "sweet singing" she pointed to? It was that in the Ancient System Custodianship of the "secret knowledge" was partitioned off into several chosen Custodianships for the preservation in times of unfriendly dynasties or such. The secret knowledge she pointed to here was that the "
Science of the Mantra" was entrusted to the Mahayana Ch'an School. I have their published works on this and I learned some valued things from it. How the mantra and the symbol and the gestures are organized and used. It is a visible science as it is emblazoned on many of the Tibetan, Buddhist, Hindu artifacts like Tapestry's, Mandala , Scarves, Thanka's etc. But without an exposure  they carry no importance other than a unique art form of curiosity. There are Teachings of the Non-Dual School from several contributor Branches in each ,the idea of the Buddhist "Mindful Awareness" is communicated in essential form. I do hold the premise that if one trys and performs Mindful Awareness by studiously observing one's conscious mind ( which is the conditioned mind) one can move on the track, and approach if conditions are right, generated energy, senior presence, awareness without thought ,in watching and observing one's mind a context for minor Samadhi can be experienced by individuals in
 their present bodies in the present lifetime. This is the attestation of all the Brotherhood of Adepts who have arrived by Direct Personal Experience even if only momentary is spent in the Brilliance that is the very Space wherein we have our Being it is enough to provide the Gnosis that can never be removed from Remembrance of the individual that has experienced it. It will be also carried to the next incarnation. Home is where the Heart is. We are all "left home" in a reverse sense when incarnate. It is not the purpose to live continuously in the Non-dual but once the experience has happened new awareness replaces the old dualism because it is forever senior.  If Krishnamurti was Home it changed his Gnosis and lived with his moments after that even though he again was as you and I. He took the enlightenment and communicated the Mana of it  from one to another, from hand given in trust to the hand of another human being and as he did he was aware in a true sense of the Space and 
his energy of his Being in ways he did not know directly before. The Siva Non-dual Adwaita, Vedanta Non-dual Adwaita, the Tibetan Primordial Cllear Awareness, the Mahayana Ch'an, Zen all make use of the same set of Primordial Truths that are Senior Projections into the sphere of our world and which no one can be cause point over, the set is the Theosophy which never ends.

    Just my personal view.

Thanks for your insightful input John. I never got into the nitty gritty of the non-duality in K's teachings, as I took the view that he was the living example of non duality consciousness and what we can expect to achieve in the future. So for him, non-duality, was a fact, and like you say his message crosses paths with HPB when she talks about living through higher manas.

I think though that for others who are living in duality, it is impossible to achieve that level of consciousness in one lifetime, and this, imo,is the flaw that has caused many of his followers into have to deal with the mental dilemma of not being able to live in non-duality.

Just a guess though.

Hi again my friend. My viewpoint is the Mahatma's chose to utilize Madame Blavatsky as the sole Agent to originate specific teachings and to organize individuals whose inherent instinctual affinities would bring them to find intellectual and spiritual uplift of mind and consciousness as a group dynamic called Theosophical Society. In this thread that is discussing differential aspects relative to the express purposes of Mahatma's and Krishnamurti what is essential in my view to hold in mind is the primary focus of each one. Blavatsky as the Traducere Illuminati of the Mahatma's places before mankind in her many published works what can be mainly characterized as Teaching as pertains to Dualism in terms of the receiving consciousness of mankind. Krishnamurti in contrast seems to me to present the difficult to apprehend instruction of Non-dual teaching Adwaita as is in "kernel" core form found in Tibetan, Hindu, Mahayana, Zen and the Mahatma's. Non-dual recognizes the "Space"
one is never without of whether incarnate, astral, mind, buddhic, atmic or monad. Primordial original Space that is non-space as the field of all that has been, is, or will be. The formula is"Find Out Where You Really Are" then "Find Out Who You Really Are." This is fundamental basis of what is referred to as Universal Brotherhood. Original Primordial Self Unity is Native State. The Conditioned Mind of Patanjali is incapable of acceptance of Unity Non-dual realizations because to do so is to recognize self postulated extinction, and it resists by any and all reasonings to be receptive as such to this Awareness. Krishnamurti placed Bhijna of Non-Dual Adwaita into the heart of people and this did stimulate them even if they could not bring the "Why" to conscious level. They felt it's energy.The two methods are distinctly focused to two different results but in the stream of consciousness they complement and provide a basis of future growth and expansion of Beingness. Be - Do
- Have
is one triangle. Affinity- Reality -Communication is a second triangle. Before they were opposed, one up, one down. Now we are on the upcline and ascent so they are both "up" now. But the "S" or "Sat" remains. Also the Seven Fold Economy is maintained organizationally. The "game" is start in "Mystery" and ascend to "Know" the Patanjali consciousness is in mystery. The Realized Consciousness is in "Know." There are states in between. Just a viewpoint eclectic as it is.

That is what i also got out of K's material. he also emphasized that a
single person could make a difference as against how some theosophists feel
that obedient (sheepish, perhaps blind) following the leaders is a necessity
for spiritual growth and on and on...
