Thank you for this most interesting documentary
of yet another fraud and liar duping his
I remember reading his work The Teachings of Don
Juan in the early seventies.
It reminds me of one Cyril Hoskin a k a T Lobsang
Rampa, another of like kind, who many of us young
seekers absorbed, in our gullible innocence, as a
truthful and honest person.
What is quite extraordinary to me is that, despite
unequivocal evidence of their fraud and lies,
their deceptions and hypocrisy and their utterly
discredited fantasies, they still have followers
who believe in them and much of what they say.
What is even more extraordinary to me is that
among so-called theosophical truth-seekers Bishop
C W Leadbeater is still accepted as a person of
credibility and even adoration.
Others accept him and his fantasies simply because
some of his writings happen to copy what other
genuine truth-tellers have said or written before
At least Mr Castaneda only claimed to have been
taught by a Yaqui shaman.
And Mr Hoskin only claimed to be a Tibetan Lama.
Bishop Leadbeater claimed to be in contact with the
"Supreme Director of evolution on this globe",
perhaps his most supreme fantasy, amongst many others.

misguided forms of acceptance, often influenced by
powerful occult energies, know no bounds and ensures
we are to remain the mere playthings of the Brothers
of the Shadow for some time to come.
