Re: Theos-World Does Muehlegger Have an Opinion on Hilarion's Visit to Bombay?

Well said. Newbees who read your response would be very much helped. The
greatest strength of theosophy, IMHO, is the spirit of uncompromising
independent inquiry coupled with practical application of the First Object
of TS in our daily lives. That is what is going to help us and in turn help
the world at large.

While I believe it is important that someone with your background does
consistently highlight, for newcomers etc., that all these things should be
diligently checked and balanced, on the broader front it is irrelevant to
the study of Theosophy whether Muehlegger, Stubbs, Johnson, or even
Williams, acknowledges, promotes, or questions one or other of the myriad
issues raised by HPBs books. The inquirer must do their own questioning.
First internally, then by way of extant commentary, if the internal question
provides no satisfactory answer. But always the inquirer should be cognisant
of that ever-wise precaution: Caveat Emptor, let the buyer beware. For, as
HPB stated, true knowledge cannot be purchased, it has to be earned. If
someone is trying to sell you a slant, an intellectualisation, an
interpretation of anything, there is surely a price attached. You might feel
you have paid nothing. But to the extent you adopt their view they raise the
value of their own wiseacreing, honest or not.
