Dear mkr

Thank you for your comment.

You write, "If Pablo takes time to read all the 
past archives of various theos lists, he may 
come out with a different opinion."

I really hope that he might indeed read the past 
archives and other available literature with a 
truly open mind. However I suspect this might 
be difficult for him.

As an ex-Adyar Society apologist I can attest 
to the difficulties faced by one thoroughly 
absorbed in the organisation and its powerful 

I was exposed to some of the issues of Bishop 
Leadbeater and Dr Besant whilst President of 
the local Lodge but dismissed it as muckraking. 
It was only whilst living at the Adyar Society 
headquarters in India for a few months that I 
was able to conduct more thorough research. The 
enormity of their betrayal of "original" 
Theosophy and the extraordinary and all-important 
deleterious far-reaching effects of their mindset 
upon unsuspecting and uninformed members became 
increasingly apparent, to the extent I could no 
longer support the organisation. This despite 
recognising some value in its continuance and 
the many selfless and hard working people among 
its membership.

This mindset and the pervasive manner in which 
it works can destroy free thinking which so 
often leads to blind and stubborn resistance 
to truth.
