In what way was he abused?

I agree with you here about K. But in what way, exactly, do you
think the TS "had veered way off the course and far away from true
THEOSOPHY?"  My impression is that after the K incident, the TS
started a "back to Blavatsky" movement to get back on track.

He was, I think, beyond any organization including Theosophy.
His "pathless land" approach is more Zen than Theosophical.

I certainly agree with you here, Dallas.
