Thanks Sherab for your views... I happen to have visited the 
original grounds of Point Loma not long ago masquerading as a 
disoriented tourist as the property is now a Nazarene College or 
such. To me they have preserved rather well the main 
buildings... It was a special treat for me and my family and no 
one came after us for trespassing... 

I also feel Tingley was certainly for the ethical movement of 
theosophy and highly regard her efforts... There was a period 
however that I wondered about her being an "autocrat" as she 
assumed the mantle of authority and to be rather authoritarian.

I do enjoy the publications however from the Theosophical 
University Press and magazine.

Shalom, Salaam and Shanti
