Compare and contrast all that Anand has written
apparently in an attempt to "denigrate" Blavatsky's
writings and teachings with what Mrs. Besant
and Mr. Leadbeater acknowledged about Blavatsky
and her work:

C.W. Leadbeater wrote:

"...without Madame Blavatsky...there would have
been no presentation of all this glorious teaching
[of Theosophy] to the people of the West....I should
like you to realize the fact, and to keep it ever
in your minds, that all that we have and all that
we have learnt, through whatever form it may now
be coming to us, we really owe to Madame Blavatsky...."

Mrs. Besant wrote:

"In order, then, that we may trace man's pedigree
aright, we shall do well to follow the broad outlines
laid down by that great disciple of the Sages,
H.P.B. whom here I salute, with my heart's
gratitude for the light and the knowledge that
she has brought to the modern world. At the very
outset of these lectures, I would acknowledge my
debt to her great work, The Secret Doctrine, from
which the whole plan and innumerable details are
taken; I have added some facts, filled up some
lacunae, bridged some gulfs, perhaps, but most
of the materials are here, and are drawn from
that record of her vast occult knowledge, her
giant grasp of facts."

C. W. Leadbeater wrote:

"....that great book The Secret Doctrine. . .
there it remains, as a monument which will
stand all through the ages. She [HPB] can never,
I think, be forgotten while that and her
other books remain to speak of her and for her...."

Mrs. Annie Besant wrote:

"....The Voice of the Silence...The book is...full
of spiritual inspiration, full of food for the heart;
stimulating the loftiest virtue and containing the
noblest ideals...."

I could quote more but will stop!

Food for thought...
