A New Web Site: Blavatsky's Alleged "Untruths"

May 27, 1998 12:46 PM

There is no religion, belief or opinion higher than the truth.

A number of Theosophical students as well as other individuals have
claimed that H.P. Blavatsky made various statements
which could be called "untruths".  K. Paul Johnson in his various books
deals with some of these "untruths." Other individuals have
also brought forth examples of what they consider "untruths" on the part
of Madame Blavatsky. Dallas TenBroeck, a longtime student
of Madame Blavatsky's life and works, has objected to these claims of
"untruths."  I quote a statement below from Mr. TenBroeck on
this subject.  This web page has been created with the specific aim of
dealing in a fair and open way with the alleged "untruths" and
their rebuttals or confirmations (if there are any).  We encourage
people interested in this subject to submit to this Web Site
examples/confirmations/rebuttals of these alleged "untruths."  Please
send relevant items to  Please sign your

positive, negative or neutral.  Also please post items to [If you are not a subscriber to Theos-Talk,

No controversy surrounding H.P. Blavatsky is considered "off limits" to
this list. However, all contributors should document
their assertions and be willing to share in some detail their reasoning
and understanding for the various statements made. Serious and
indepth discussion is desired; heated argument and name calling are
discouraged. Please share what you know about these
controversies with others. All participants are encouraged to make
regular contributions to this forum.
