Re: Anand, What do you think about Masters at Adyar?????

C.W. Leadbeater was reliable clairvoyant, most of the times.. So he
knew if the real Master visited him or just the form created by
somebody else. Suppose Blavatsky had created Master's form, or visited
herself in Master's form, C. W. Leadbeater would have known it. But as
C. W. Leadbeater considered Master's visits genuine, they are perhaps
not "forged visits", like some others might have experienced.
In Ramayana, an Indian classic, Ravana (the devil), visits Sita
(Rama's wife), in the form of a monk and then kidnaps her. This shows
that it is not impossible to appear to others in different form.
