Re: Theos-World Re: Annie Besant on Her Messiah: Was this Part of the Messiah Craze?

Since anyone who follows the meditative path, such as described in
The Voice of the Silence (as translated by HPB) can ultimately
achieve samadhi and experience nirvana -- without contacting any
Masters... Neither Arundale, Leadbeater or Besant can have any more
credibility than any writer of science fiction when they claim, or
appear to have contacted the Masters... Who, themselves, are nothing
more than ordinary human beings who have practiced meditation (with
proper guidance), experienced the secrets of creative nature, and
learned how to correlate its forces using only their minds -- just as
HPB did to a certain degree.
Apparently, both Leadbeater and Besant could have no more credibility
in determining who had contacted the Masters than any lay person...
And, judging by their wrong choices and false interpretation of the
Secret Doctrine metaphysics -- I suspect that they were the "dark
powers" (or their dupes) who tried to mislead the members of the TS,
by violating the Masters (and HPB's) admonitions, and attempting to
transform theosophy into an organized religion focussed on a
returning messiah -- that at least Leadbeater hoped to control.
Actually, I believe the real agent of the dark power (Dugpas) was
Leadbeater who preached the false doctrine, and that Besant was
simply mesmerized by him into believing Krishnamurti was the true
divine Messiah or returning Christos.
Obviously, all such false prophets are bound to make mistakes (and
force others to) -- which eventually become exposed by their fruits.
As HPB pointed out, all it takes to recognize theosophical truth from
falsehood, is a thorough understanding of the true nature of
cosmogenesis and anthropogenesis based on fundamental principles --
as completely described and formalized in the Book of Dzyan, and
explained, using at least four (if not all seven hidden) primal keys,
in the Secret Doctrine.
So far, no one has ever found any logical errors or flaws in the
original teachings -- which presage and underlie every proven theory
of relativity, quantum (and soon to be proven string and holographic
paradigm) theories) of physics. When that happens. all the pseudo
theosophical metaphysical theories -- that came after Blavatsky's
original disclosure in the SD -- will, like all false doctrines, fall
into the dust of obscurity.

The 'apostle affair' came from Arundale and AB made it public as
she believed him to be connected to the Masters, which he was not.
That was her mistake, and a pretty grave one, and big enough to
have us reminded of KH's critique of her. In those days I think it
was only K, CWL, Scott and Hodson who were connected.
G.S. Arundale had published a book 'Nirvana', which was praised by
Leadbeater and Annie Besant. Do you want to say that Arundale
reached that state without having connection with any of the
Masters? And there are perhaps more indications which tell that
Annie Besant and Leadbeater considered Arundale as one in contact
with the Masters.
Being in contact with Master does not mean that person does not
make blunders. Masters don't guide every action of disciples. They
have much more important things to do than that.
I suspect that some dark powers might have involved in seeing World
Teacher project fail. These dark powers try to mislead some
individuals, so that good work gets spoiled.
