Dear Friends:

Re Similarity of Robert Crosbie rituals and methods to
Hinduism and Buddhism -- The Church borrowed them.

If you read the 2nd vol. of ISIS UNVEILED you will find how
H.P.Blavatsky traces the Catholic church in its rituals and
observations copied them all from Hinduism and Buddhism -- as now
practised in Tibet. It seeks to obliterate this pilferage, and
prohibits its adherents from reading and investigating anything
that would reveal the coincidences.

Use the INDEX to ISIS UNVEILED and discover for yourself the many
ways in which this was done, and then hidden.

Best wishes,
