Dear friends

My views are:

Allow me to throw a few thoughts and ask some questions...

******* 1 *******

I discovered the following in K. Paul Johnsons book "Initiations of Theosophical Masters" on page 49.

"Another royal sponsor of the TS, Maharaja Bikram Singh of Faridkot, was by 1886 emboiled in a dispute which rent asunder the Singh Sabha. Bikram Singh, patron of the organization, was allied with Thakar Singh Sandhanwalia (KH), Baba Khem Singh Bedi (the Chohan), and Dayal Singh Majithia (Djual Kul) in support of a military uprising against the British." (p. 49)

I wonder what the view of Djual Kul being identical with Dayal Singh Majithia is based on?

- - - Some info about  Dayal Singh Majithia  - - -

Dayal Singh Majithia was said to be present at the 1884 TS Convent.
Now where is he on the picture?

Wikipedia says about Dayal Singh Majithia (1848-1898)

Dayal Singh Majithia was for instance a writer and the founder of the India newspaper named The Tribune.

And Annie Besant talked warmly about Dayal Singh Majithia :

In this expanded bio he was for instance in heavy Correspondances with a muslim named Maulvi Sayed Ali Muhammad

Are there any more info on who D. K. really was?

"The Twelfth Dalai Lama, Trinley Gyatso

The Twelfth Dalai Lama, Trinley Gyatso was born in 1856 in Lhoka, a place near Lhasa to Phuntsok Tsewang and Tsering Yudon.

In 1858, the young boy as Dalai Lama was escorted to Lhasa where Reting Ngawang Yeshi Tsultrim Gyaltsen, the regent gave him the name
Thupten Gyatso. In 1860, at the age of five he took the novice vows of monkhood from the Gaden Throne Holder Lobsang Khenrab and he was
enthroned in the Potala Palace. In 1873, at the age of eighteen, he took on full responsibility as both spiritual and political leader of Tibet. In
1875, he died at the age of twenty in the Potala Palace."

Thubten Gyatso the 13th Dalai Lama (enthroned in 1879) was born as far away as Lake Baikal.
"The Thirteenth Dalai Lama, Thupten Gyatso

The Thirteenth Dalai Lama, Thupten Gyatso, was born in the year of the Fire Bird in 1876 at Thakpo Langdun in south Tibet to Kunga Rinchen
and Lobsang Dolma, a peasant couple.

In 1878, he was recognized as the reincarnation of the Dalai Lama following predictions from the state oracles and auspicious signs at his birth.
He was escorted to Lhasa where he was ordained into monkhood by the Panchen Lama, Tenpai Wangchuk, and was given the name Ngawang
Lobsang Thupten Gyatso Jigdral Chokley Namgyal. In 1879, the Thirteenth Dalai Lama was enthroned at the Potala Palace."

Was the founders ( ) of the Rime Movement of Tibetan Buddhism involved with the theosophical Masters?

The Rime Movements importance until today:
"In summary, the Rime movement is a timely and unique movement with great consequences, owing much to the two 19th century luminaries Khyentse Wangpo and Jamgon Kongtrul. Without their incredible efforts compiling and transmitting teachings, it is likely that much Buddhist literature would have been lost. It helped break the custom of single lineage teachings which isolated some schools from others, and it established a platform from which people could view all schools with equal respect. In fact Lord Buddha himself forbade his students to criticize teachers and teachings from other traditions and cultures. This is what Rime is all about."
