My views are:
Here follows part 3 of 4 on the quest for H. P. Blavatsky masters.
Gurdjieff's Search and his connection with Jamgon Kongtrul.
Dissatisfied with the answers of contemporary religion and science, Gurdjieff intuited that the wisdom societies of ancient civilizations held the real key to his question. And so with a group of like-minded friends who called themselves the Seekers of Truth, he made many journeys into remote and dangerous areas with the aim of rediscovering this ancient knowledge. "
"In the ruins of Ani, the ancient Armenian capital, Gurdjieff and his friends discovered correspondence that spoke of an esoteric brotherhood called Sarmoung. The brotherhood had existed in Babylon in 2,500 B.C., and subsequently migrated northward to the Izrumim Valley. Some believe the Sarmoung to have been a sixth or seventh century Aisorian school located between Urmia and Kurdistan. There is also in Tibet a group of monasteries known as Surmang. The tenth Trungpa Tulku, their supreme abbot, died in 1938. Tibetans believe he reincarnated as Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, the eleventh Trungpa Tulku, who came to America in 1970 and often spoke of Gurdjieff. Gurdjieff certainly did travel to Tibet and speaks about his experiences there. See Voices in the Dark."
Now we know that the "Trungpa Tulku" in the 19th century went and learned from a most highly respected Tibetan Buddhist teacher named Jamgon Kongtrul. Also known as Lodro Thaye. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trungpa_t%C3%BClkus )
Jamgon Kongtrul was the holder of "The Golden Kagyu Garland" (Or the Golden Robe)
More on that in the next e-mail.
I am not saying that all of the above is all true, but I find it suggestive.
