Re: Secrete plan in Radha Burnier's head

Dear Sampsa,

Thank you for your response. I will leave TS politics aside and
concentrate on the Krishnamurti issue as I perceive that one to be of
higher importance. 

My question to you is: what is your understanding of theosophy and
Krishnamurti that there is no contradiction?

How would you deal with a list of comparisons between the two I made a
while ago, to be found at:
