I think every once and a awhile you can see the dynamic genius
of Madame Blavatskaya... We can still appreciate her
contribution. I have quoted her on more than one occasion in
various e discussions, even though the mere mention of her
name is enough for some to reject everything she said!
Even though at times there were some fairly obvious ways she
was not very comfortable to be around. I'm thinking of what GRS
Mead wrote about difficulties he had with her. Mead is someone
I really admire for his contributions in Gnostic studies but we still
have to give Madame Blavatskaya her due!
