Arhats hah!  Airheads would have been more like it.

Sometime ago on Theos-Talk, Murty gave some helpful extracts from
H.P.  Blavatsky's writings showing her teaching on the  Maitreya.



Theosophical  students might want to compare and contrast what HPB
wrote with what, for  example, Annie Besant said as follows in 1925:

"And now I have to give  you, by command of the King, His message,
and some of the messages of the  Lord Maitreya and His great
Brothers. . . what I am saying, as to matter of  announcement, is
definitely at the command of the King whom I  serve.

His taking possession of His chosen vehicle . . . will be  SOON.
Then He will choose, AS BEFORE, HIS TWELVE APOSTLES. . . and  their
chief, the Lord Himself. He has already chosen them, but I have  only
the command to mention seven who have reached the stage of  Arhatship,
Who were the 'Arhats'?

The first two, my brother Charles  Leadbeater and myself, . . . C.
Jinarajadasa, . . . George Arundale, Oscar  Kollerstrom, . . . Rukmini

I left out one and must  leave out another. Naturally, our
Krishnaji [Jiddu Krishnamurti] was one,  but he is to be the vehicle
of the Lord. And the other is one who is very  dear to all of us, as
to the whole Brotherhood: Bishop James Wedgwood. He  had borne his
crucifixion before the seal of Arhatship was set upon him by  his King.
Those are the first seven of the twelve whom He has chosen,  with
Himself as the thirteenth. 'Ye call me Master and Lord, and ye  do
well, for so I am.'

Now the wonder may come into your mind:  H.P.B. was the only one
who was really announced as the messenger of the  Master. Since then
the world has grown a good deal, and it is possible that  while the
few may be repelled, many thousands will be attracted to  THE
CHRIST. . . . Whatever the effect, SINCE HE HAS SAID IT, it is
done.  . ."

The Theosophist, November, 1925. CAPS ADDED.

Now please  compare and contrast Mrs. Besant's statement with what HPB
wrote in 1889  about a certain Pseudo-Theosophical group:

". . . A new and rapidly  growing danger. . . is threatening . . . the
spread of the PURE Esoteric  Philosophy and knowledge. . . . I allude
to those charlatanesque imitations  of Occultism and Theosophy. . . . "

"By pandering to the prejudices of  people, and especially by adopting
the FALSE ideas of a personal God and a  PERSONAL, CARNALIZED Saviour,
as the groundwork of their teaching, the  leaders of this 'swindle'
(for such it is) are endeavoring to draw men to  them and in

".  . . A close examination will assuredly reveal. . . materials
largely stolen  . . . from Theosophical writings. . . [and] DISTORTED
and falsified so as  to be palmed off on the unwary as revelations of
new and undreamed of  truths. But many will neither have the time nor
the opportunity for such a  thorough investigation; and before they
become aware of the IMPOSTURE they  may be led far from the Truth."

". . . Nothing is more dangerous to  Esoteric Truth than the GARBLED
AND DISTORTED versions disfigured to suit  the prejudices and tastes
of men in general."

Quoted from  Blavatsky's E.S. Instruction No. I., 1889. CAPS ADDED.
These extracts are  omitted from the version of Instruction No. I as
found in HPB's COLLECTED  WRITINGS, Volume 12.
