> So therefore I would keep recommending: Stop selling books by C.
W. Leadbeater and his LLC Church.
Why not burn them in public places, with sufficient notice given to
those interested to attend? As a matter of fact, why stop at
Leadbeater's books? Why not include Besant's, Arundale's,
Jinarajadasa's, Sri Ram's, Taimni's and perhaps many others?
In view of the statemts included in it, such as the ones below,
should not "The Secret Doctrine" be also considered as a book whose
sale may not be allowed to go on?
"The Aryan views of the symbolism were those of the whole Pagan
world; the Semite interpretations emanated from, and were pre-
eminently those of a small tribe, thus marking its national features
and the idiosyncratic defects that characterize many of the Jews to
this day ? gross realism, selfishness, and sensuality. They had made
a bargain, through their father Jacob, with their tribal deity, self-
exalted above all others, and a covenant that his "seed shall be as
the dust of the earth"; and that deity could have no better image
henceforth than that of the symbol of generation, and, as
representation, a number and numbers." (SD, vol. II, p. 470)
"But Phallic worship has developed only with the gradual loss of the
keys to the inner meaning of religious symbols; and there was a day
when the Israelites had beliefs as pure as the Aryans have. But now
Judaism, built solely on Phallic worship, has become one of the
latest creeds in Asia, and theologically a religion of hate and
malice toward everyone and everything outside themselves. Philo
Judæus shows what was the genuine Hebrew faith. The sacred Writings,
he says, prescribe what we ought to do . . . commanding us to hate
the heathen and their laws and institutions. They did hate Baal or
Bacchus worship publicly, but left its worst features to be followed
secretly; and it is with the Talmudic Jews that the grand symbols of
nature were the most profaned. With them, as now shown by the
discovery of the key to the correct Bible reading ? Geometry, the
fifth divine Science ("fifth" ? because it is the fifth key in the
series of the Seven Keys to the Universal esoteric language and
symbology) was desecrated, and by them applied to conceal the most
terrestrial and grossly sexual mysteries, wherein both Deity and
religion were degraded." (SD, vol. II, p. 471)
On the other hand, an easier solution would be to allow people the
freedom to choose what they want to read and study. Alas, this has
always been the most difficult path to follow, particularly for those
bred and born with the nourishment of the received truth.
