 The same people who claim that Moria advocates doing good deeds in order to
bring wealth and prosperity in this lifetime (I went to ECP's website, looked under
Teachings, and the first thing I saw was this "create good karma and you will get
wealth, create bad karma and you will lose it" kindergarten view of karma, the type
of distortion that created the caste system in India in the first place; certainly
not the view as given in the Secret Doctrine or the Mahatma Letters, and CERTAINLY
not a more advanced view).
