While all the fantastic effects described may be as they are described, are
not the effects of the rituals in other temples such as the Buddhist, Hindu,
Zoroastrian, Moslem, etc are equally fantastic and effective since the
founders of the major faiths sure are fully knowledgeable of the effects in
the unseen world. So any comparative study will be informative and
educational consistent with the 2nd object of TS.
On the other hand, HPB who was in constant contact with the Adepts and was
responsible for the major epic theosophical works and writings, has not
written about the occult forces in churches. One wonders whether they were
secondary to the primary mission of the TS?
