Cass, Nigel,
I think this is too sharp.
To me K is primarily a medicine or an antidot for Leadbeater's astral fanatsism and his cant about Masters.

If you are healthy, you have no need to drink an antidot. You will not like the flavour.
But if you are going to snuff it, you'll like to chug it!

Dear Cass

I agree with all you write below.

Madame Blavatsky brought profound occult knowledge, whilst Jiddu 
Krishnamurti became the perfect adjunct, through encouraging us to 
believe nothing and to seriously and deeply investigate the nature of 
our self with its predispositions, prejudices and conditioning.

Kind regards

Krishnamurti fulfilled Blavatsky prediction that a Teacher would 
come - Leadbeater and Besant presumed the teacher would be a World 
Teacher - a christ acting through maitreya - the whole episode 
confounds me as Besant and Leadbeater must have been aware that such 
a World Teacher would not have required any education from those 
lesser evolved.

world a new teaching on the self, hence his reasoning to abandon 
everything that supported the second christ claim.
