Re: More on "Anand's New Possibility: HPB created...the Master"

I did not say that Masters don't exist. I think they do exist. But
there is possibility that Blavatsky materialized letters which were
not always containing Masters' thoughts. There are too many problems
in Blavatsky's writing and work in general. Sometimes she might have
faked letters to make others believe in the existence of Masters.
Blavatsky needed co-operation of other people and so to impress them
she did some miracles like production of letters from nowhere, cup etc.
