Master Koot Hoomi versus C.W. Leadbeater
Sep 22, 2008 07:06 AM
In a 1975 Adyar T.P.H. book, Helen V. Zahara wrote:
"The original statements in the Theosophical Society regarding the
after death processes were given in Letters of the Mahatmas to A.P.
Sinnett. . . . One must, however, note that a DIFFERENT description
of the after death process appears in some works by theosophical
writers. One such exponent was C.W. Leadbeater. . . . This
[Leadbeater's version] would seem to be AT VARIANCE with the original
teaching [of Master Koot Hoomi]." Caps added. Quoted from Miss
Zahara's "The Panorama of Human Existence," pp. 68-69 in "The
Universal Flame: Commemorating the Centenary of the Theosophical
Society", Adyar, Madras, India, Theosophical Publishing House, 1975.
Hugh Shearman also wrote in the pages of THE THEOSOPHIST:
". . . the accounts of after-death conditions...in the Mahatma
Letters CLASH VERY EMPHATICALLY...with what Bishop Leadbeater...later
described...." "Theosophical Ontologies," The Theosophist, October,
1971, p. 11. Caps added.
