Dear Anand

On a number of previous occasions over the past few years 
you have repeatedly accused Madame Blavatsky of 
"many mistakes" and the letters of the Mahatmas as 
"pseudo" (false.) 

Also on a number of occasions I and others have asked you 
to provide evidence to substantiate your claims.

Once again you have failed so to do.

The assertions I make about the lies and frauds of 
Bishop Leadbeater are based on substantial evidence 
from reliable sources, eg; theosophical historians 
Dr James Santucci and Dr Gregory Tillett; long time 
theosophical researchers and teachers including Jerry 
Hejka-Ekins and Dr. Alvin Boyd Kuhn and theosophical 
authors Margaret Thomas and Alice Leighton Cleather to 
name just a few.

Anand, if you are going to make bold accusations in an
international forum with potentially hundreds of readers, 
you have to expect for your accusations to be questioned 
and their credence demanded. 

Accusations such as you make are not simply idle chit chat.
They are powerful statements that can potentially influence 
many people.

Do you not feel any sense of responsibility towards students
of Theosophy?

Do you not realise that, despite your protestations to the 
contrary, you are in effect expecting people to believe what 
you are saying without providing any substantive proof?

Your style of authoritative pronouncement, with no evidence to 
establish that authority, is precisely the mindset and writing 
style produced by Bishop Leadbeater and Dr Besant where they 
expected people to blindly comply with their decrees.

For those of you in this forum who are tired of this endless 
challenge please consider the broader picture.

Theosophy was reintroduced to the western world for significant
reasons, among which was to bring about a new way of thinking, 
"?a new continent of thought?" A mindset where evidence and 
proof are important considerations in the search for the truths 
of existence.

"I hope to be permitted to do so much for you. If, for 
generations we have "shut out the world from the Knowledge 
of our Knowledge," it is on account of its absolute unfitness; 
and if, notwithstanding proofs given, it still refuses yielding 
to evidence, then will we at the End of this cycle retire into 
solitude and our kingdom of silence once more.... We have 
offered to exhume the primeval strata of man's being, his basic 
nature, and lay bare the wonderful complications  of his inner 
Self ? something never to be achieved by physiology or even 
psychology in its ultimate expression ? and demonstrate 
it scientifically. It matters not to them, if the excavations 
be so deep, the rocks so rough and sharp, that in diving into 
that, to them, fathomless ocean, most of us perish in the dangerous 
for it is we who were the divers and the pioneers, and the men of 
science have but to reap where we have sown. It is our mission to 
plunge and bring the pearls of Truth to the surface; theirs ? to 
clean and set them into scientific jewels. And, if they refuse to 
touch the 
ill-shapen oyster-shell, insisting that there is [not], nor 
cannot be any precious pearl inside it, then shall we once more 
wash our hands of any responsibility before human-kind. For 
countless generations hath the adept builded a fane of imperishable 
rocks, a giant's Tower of INFINITE THOUGHT, wherein the Titan dwelt, 
and will yet, if need be, dwell alone, emerging from it but at the 
end of every cycle, to invite the elect of mankind to co-operate 
with him and help in his turn enlighten superstitious man. 
And we will go on in that periodical work of ours; we will not allow 
ourselves to be baffled in our philanthropic attempts until that day 
when the foundations of a new continent of thought are so firmly 
built that no amount of opposition and ignorant malice guided by 
the Brethren of the Shadow will be found to prevail."
Mahatma Letters to AP Sinnet, No. 18 Chr George Linton and
Virginia Hanson.

"?a giant's Tower of INFINITE THOUGHT?"! 

Perhaps this suggests not blindly following and complying with a 
proven liar and fraud and moreover, not allowing unsubstantiated 
accusations to go unchallenged.

To do otherwise is to be co-dependent, as one who supplies alcohol
to an alcoholic just to keep the "peace."
