If you have the courage of your convictions, you get kicked out on to the road. That is where i am at the moment, for standing up and fighting against the corruption the President endorses through her relatives.

And this blind following demanded from a man who lied
repeatedly, who manifestly contradicted the very masters he
claimed to represent and who admitted to serious sexual
misdemeanours with young boysâ and whose many
fantastical statements in his books have been removed by
"theosophical" publishers to avoid both extreme embarrassment
and justified discredit, and to maintain the blind following
of a blatant liar.
Is it any wonder that deception and deceit from whatever
quarter continues to infect some in the Adyar Theosophical
It is disappointing the many honourable members in that
organisation continue to permit these violations to occur.
Courage of convictions it seems is in short supply.
