Re: Theos-World Annie Besant on the Christ

A long time ago I was going to write a book about the TS in that  period.  
The title was going to be "1925--The Year They All Went  Nuts."
Imagine if you will, a group of us in the Olcott Library looking at The  
Theosophist from that year, laughing our heads off.

In a message dated 4/22/2010 9:42:24 A.M. Central Daylight Time, writes:

Mrs. Besant proclaimed to the whole world the  following:

"And  now I have to give you, by command of the King, His message,
and some of  the messages of the Lord Maitreya and His great
Brothers. . . what I am  saying, as to matter of announcement, is
definitely at the command of the  King whom I serve.

His taking possession of His chosen vehicle . . .  will be soon.
Then He will choose, as before, His twelve apostles . . . and  their
chief, the Lord Himself. He has already chosen them, but I have  only
the command to mention seven who have reached the stage of  Arhatship...

The first two, my brother Charles Leadbeater and myself, .  . . C.
Jinarajadasa, . . . George Arundale, Oscar Kollerstrom, . . .  Rukmini

I left out one and must leave out another.  Naturally, our
Krishnaji [Jiddu Krishna_murti] was one, but he is to be the  vehicle
of the Lord. And the other is one who is very dear to all of us,  as
to the whole Brotherhood: Bishop James Wedgwood. He had borne  his
crucifixion before the seal of Arhatship was set upon him by his  King.
Those are the first seven of the twelve whom He has chosen,  with
Himself as the thirteenth. 'Ye call me Master and Lord, and ye  do
well, for so I am.'

Now the wonder may come into your mind:  H.P.B. was the only one
who was really announced as the messenger of the  Master. Since then
the world has grown a good deal, and it is possible that  while the
few may be repelled, many thousands will be attracted to  the
Christ. . . . Whatever the effect, since He has said it, it is
done.  .  ."
The  Theosophist, November, 1925
