      I don't know about the K issue, but here is an in-print book from Wizards on Theosophy and Heindel, "H.P. Blavatsky and they Secret Doctrine," by Heindel :

>Cass, Govert and Morten,

>Thank you all for the replies. I was not surprised by your comments, tough. Always had the impression that K had little contact with the original theosophical material.

>However,  I have two further questions:

>1.A theosophist has a text in his website, claiming that David Bohm was dismayed when he found out that K had engaged in a relationship with his best friend's wife. This fact (?) is described in the book ""Lives in the Shadow With J. Krishnamurti", Radha Rajagopal Sloss, Addison-Wesley Publishing Co., 1991,". Is this story true? Has someone discredited it? Is it a case of "do as I say, not as I do"?

>2. For me, as a non-affiliated theosophist, it is a bit difficult to understand the relevance that K´s writings have in the TS. I am more or less familiar with the history of the TS until the death of Besant. From 1933 to the present, I only know the names of the Presidents. What I want to know is if K was repudiated by the TS after he dissolved the Order of the Star of the East. If yes, when did he become so popular for the leaders of the TS? Only with Radha, or before? Why does the TS mention so often K? Does the TS consider that K did the right thing in 1929 and that the leaders of the TS (Besant and Leadbeater) were wrong?

>I really would like to know your opinion about Max Heindel (I discovered that Besant´s daughter became an affiliate of the Rosicrucian Order Crotona Fellowship after the death her mother).

>I think some of my questions can create disagreements. That's not my purpose, I can assure you. Some time after my first contact with theosophy (HPB writings) I found out that about Leadbeater, Alice Bailey, Krishnamurti, etc.. I tought that it was more or less the same thing, that they were all connected with theosophy, with minor differences in their points of view. I bought all their books, which are hard to find, here in Portugal.

>I am satisfied with the conclusions I arrived concerning Bailey, Leadbeater and Besant, but I still have some doubts about  K.
