One might want to add the following link, which might show it self to be true in the sense that Annie Besant actually developed astral Clairvoyance:

  During H.P. Blavatsky's own lifetime,
  Sinnett claimed contact with Master Koot Hoomi
  (independent of H.P.B.).

  When did A.P. Sinnett first try to establish some kind of contact and
  communication with Master Koot Hoomi INDEPENDENT of H.P. Blavatsky
  acting as mediator?

  Sinnett wrote in his book "The Early Days of Theosophy":

  "About this time [early July 1884] Mrs. [Laura] Holloway, a
  wonderfully gifted American psychic came to stay with us. . . . .She
  used to get vivid clairvoyant visions of the Master [Koot Hoomi], -
  could pass on messages to me from K.H. and on one occasion he
  actually made use of her to speak to me in the first person." p. 27

  But the Master K.H. (in a letter received by Mr. Sinnett on July 18,
  1884) told Sinnett the following:

  "You ask me if you can tell Miss Arundale what I told you thro' Mrs. H
  [olloway]. . . . . .[But] I have NEVER . . . COMMUNICATED WITH YOU OR
  ANY ONE ELSE THRO' HER . . . . . She is an excellent but quite
  undeveloped clairvoyante. . . . ." The Mahatma Letters, 2nd ed., p.
  355 [CAPS ADDED.]

  During this same summer, Master K.H. wrote to Mrs. Holloway warning

  "Your vivid creative fancy [imagination] evokes illusive Gurus and
  chelas, and puts into their mouths words coined the instant before in
  the mint of your mind, unknown to yourself. The false appear as real,
  as the true, and you have no exact method of detection since you are
  yet prone to force your communications to agree with your
  preconceptions. . . . "

  Quoted from: "Mrs. Holloway and the Mahatmas," Letter 17.

  Despite the emphatic DENIAL by Master K.H., Sinnett PERSISTED in
  searching for still another "channel" to the Master INDEPENDENT of

  In "The Autobiography of Alfred Percy Sinnett," he wrote:

  "On the 26th of April 1886. . . we went . . . to the Albemarle
  Club . . . to meet a lady who was . . . desirous of making my
  acquaintance . . . . . I will give her a fictitious name and call her
  Mary [her real name was Maude Travers]...."

  "...shortly afterwards I tried a mesmeric experiment with her (in
  accordance with her wish) and obtained remarkable results - she went
  very easily into a trance in which she became unequivocally
  clairvoyant. . . .I became convinced that she clairvoyantly saw the
  mountain region in Tibet where the Master K.H. resided. . . . "

  "It became obvious that Mary might become a link between myself and
  the Master. . . . Mary came to stay with February 1888 and
  our regular mesmeric sittings were resumed almost every evening, the
  Master [K.H.] talking to me through her in most cases. In this way I
  gathered a great deal of miscellaneous occult information. . . . .
  Mary left us to go to her own home in May 1888 having had mesmeric
  sitting almost every evening while she was with us, at most of which
  the Master spoke to me, - or rather dictated to her what he wished to
  say. She would pass into a higher condition in which she could be in
  touch with him and be enabled to repeat his words to her in reply to
  my questions or remarks." pp 33 & 38-39

  This time in a letter (dated August 22, 1888) to Colonel Henry S.
  Olcott, Master Koot Hoomi DENIED Sinnett's claim concerning Mary
  [Maude Travers]:

  "Since 1885 I have not written, nor caused to be written save thro'
  her [H.P. Blavatsky's ] agency, direct or remote, a letter or line to
  anybody in Europe or America, nor communicated orally with, or thro'
  any third party. Theosophists should learn it."

  "You will understand later the significance of this declaration so
  keep it in mind. Her [HPB's] fidelity to our work being constant, and
  her sufferings having come upon her thro' it, neither I nor either of
  my Brother associates will desert or supplant her."

  Quoted from: "Letters from the Masters of the Wisdom," Series I,
  1973, p. 45

  Mr. Sinnett totally IGNORED this warning preferring to believe that
  he was in contact with the REAL Master K.H. thru Mary (Maude





  for THE LATER DEVELOPMENTS in the 1890s when C.W.
  Leadbeater returned from India and became part of Mr.
  Sinnett's "inner group".
