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
