Seem to remember hearing Krishnamurti saying words to the effect that when

Is it fair to say that he created the division in the TS. After all it was
the "TS" that took him and brought him up/groomed him in a particular way -
Annie Besant/ Leadbeater sought of way. Could this necessarily have been

Rather different to HPB and the Masters wouldn't you say? And the kind of
training HPB had, from those occasional glimpses we may get of it from the
Mahatma Letters, etc.
