Comments on some statements in Pseudo-Letter No. 10

Here are comments on some statements in Pseudo-Letter No. 10

Below statements says One Life has properties of matter. That sounds
plainly wrong.
"When we speak of our One Life we also say that it penetrates, nay is the

essence of every atom of matter; and that therefore it not only has

correspondence with matter but has all its properties likewise, etc. --

hence is material, is matter itself. "


It is not clear why Life is condemned in this letter and matter is
praised. Read below statement.
"(2) Matter we know to be eternal, i.e., having had no beginning (a)

because matter is Nature herself (b) because that which cannot

annihilate itself and is indestructible exists necessarily -- and
therefore it

could not begin to be, nor can it cease to be (c) because the accumulated

experience of countless ages, and that of exact science show to us matter

(or nature) acting by her own peculiar energy, of which not an atom is

ever in an absolute state of rest, and therefore it must have always

existed, i.e., its materials ever changing form, combinations and

properties, but its principles or elements being absolutely

Again here it is not clear why matter is made supreme. Read statement
"In other words we believe in MATTER alone, in matter as visible nature

and matter in its invisibility as the invisible omnipresent omnipotent

Proteus with its unceasing motion which is its life"

Again statement below is opposite of what spiritual classics teach.
Idea of pure Existence is called absurdity.
"The existence of matter then is a fact; the existence of motion is

fact, their self existence and eternity or indestructibility is a
third fact.

And the idea of pure spirit as a Being or an Existence -- give it

name you will -- is a chimera, a gigantic absurdity."
Read below statment and you will find that it is neither supported by
scientists nor spiritualist. It is unbelievable invention. Accepted
chelas like CWL, AB, SR never said such a thing happens.
"The butterfly devoured by a bird becomes that bird, and the little bird

killed by an animal goes into a higher form."

Another unbelievable statement "Evil is the exaggeration of good"

One more false statement in so called Mahatma Letter "neither a savage
nor a wild (free) animal die of disease"

Another unbelievable statement from ML 10 is below. According to
chelas, theist philosophies and religions were given by Great Ones
from White Brotherhood. Did they mislead humanity by creating idea of
God. And what about millions of people who fear to do sin because they
fear God? What about millions of people who do good works in order to
please their God ?
"It is belief in God and Gods that makes two-thirds of humanity the

slaves of a handful of those who deceive them under the false pretence

of saving them."
Read below. If this is so, why accepted chelas of Masters built
Christian church, a Hindu temple in Adyar campus ? And why does TS
tell that people should live religions and should not leave religions
? And why then Theosophy called source of all religions, most of them
are theist ?
"Remember the sum of human misery will never be diminished unto that

day when the better portion of humanity destroys in the name of Truth,

morality, and universal charity, the altars of their false gods."

It appears that many statements in this so called Mahatma Letter 10
are simply false and unbelievable. They can not be supported by any
other spiritual writing and not even by writings of accepted chelas of
the same Masters. I have to assume that this letter contains
Blavatsky's own thoughts and not the thoughts of the Masters.
In just one letter I found so many absurdities, many more such
absurdities can be found if I examine other so called Mahatma Letters.
