I do not know what the belief/attitude in TS-Adyar is. This issue of

Ernest Wood had even before he was in TS. I see no reason why there should
be any change.
If, however, it were true, as Paul seemed to allude to, that the attitude
within TS-Adyar is that only those within the Eoteric Section have a
right to messages from the Masters, then such an attitude would represent
every bit as much a fundimentalist position as those in ULT. In fact,
that exclusivity mindset would be akin to the Roman Catholic postion that
the Pope is the Vicar of Christ or the Mormon postion that their
President,Prophet, Seer and Revelator is the sole recipient of
revelations from God.
So I ask again, does anyone know of this position? I would actually love
to be told- no way, that not at all how we think-but I believe it
important to have all the cards on the table in this matter and all be
open and honest if we are to reach any sort of consensus.
The last widely acknowledged communication was a letter in 1900 from KH to
Annie Besant in which KH mentions about esoteric popery!
My second question was a historical one. Who is the last person to have
claimed to have recieved as message from a Master? Let's get that far if
we can and then I'll comment further depending on what the facts are. No
sense laying an elaborate foundation for something that may turn out to
be a straw man.
