Ha Theo,
exactly, I have always sensed a certain fakeness about theosophists, not Theosophy.
Pretending a book written from the same source as The Voice of the Silence is another major trun off from Purucker. What good is a written book, since it only shows words, not sound, feeling nor even the smell of the pen that wrote it. Not to speak of the taste if you are told only half the Truth is revealed, the rest is upon your own Intuition? Well good rittems to that, I would not want to distort my Intuition with half Truths, I will bide my time and then STORM the Truth and no Buddha nor any Master of Wisdom will stop me...since I will give that Truth away once begotten and share the fruits of Love it will grow.

Seeing the letter dated at 14 June, 1940, can someone explain to me
what it is that is so special about Purucker's opinion as expressed in
his letter? There was Lewis Spence's 'Occult Causes of the Present
War'published the same year, and the French had already published
their speculations on Hitler in connection to an esoteric or occult
worldview since 1937. I have seen countless of late 1930's horoscopes
on Hitler published here and there in various esoteric magazines and
publications claiming the same thing. 

As such Purucker's letter is only an afterthought, an in fact
relatively late confirmation of an already established view on Hitler
by the various esoterist currents and representatives.

Purucker simply towed the accepted esoteric party line as a
Johnny-come- lately. I would have been much more suprised if this
letter was written in, say, the early 1930's.

And since the Second World War had started in 1939, I can't profess
that I am impressed by this letter. Unless we value the - always after
the facts - mechanism of antedating ones insights to give them even
more importance.
