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 the Mahatma 
Letters CLASH VERY EMPHATICALLY...with what Bishop Leadbeater...later 
described...."  "Theosophical Ontologies," The Theosophist, October, 
1971, p. 11. Caps added.
