  Dear friends,

  There are many students of theosophy who admire the thought of Carl

  However, maybe most of them don't see that Jung ideas are contrary
  to Ethics, as Eric Fromm and others showed.

  There is a most interesting article that brings even more evidences
  about the untheosophical ideais of Mr. Jung, and his relation with a
  Dugpa sect.

  The text is published at our websites
  <> and
  <> with the title:

  Or Examining Some Affinities Between
  Carl G. Jung And a Certain Tibetan Sect

  As it is written in the text:

  "If is perhaps a challenging fact for students of theosophy in the 21st
  century that a well-known thinker as Carl Jung was connected to the
  Ningmapa sect literature, as well as to their methods and occult
  inclinations. As we shall see, one of the main Ningma "best-selling"
  books - the so-called "Bardo Thodol" or "Tibetan Book of the Dead" - had
  a long- standing personal influence on Jung and received an enthusiastic
  public support from him."

  Best regards, Joaquim
