Bhakti Ananda Goswami:
I entirely agree with the response of Eldon Tucker to your recent post of
part 1 of your article. In addition, I do take responsibility for some of
the "hastily written postings" he mentioned... And wish to state that, while
I have a "yoga" system of my own, I have no wish to argue about the
fundamental concepts or teachings upon which your personal religious belief
system and practice rests. Apropos, I regret the thoughtless misidentifying
of you as "Vedantist and separatist."
Please accept my apology for using such ad hominem terms, and lumping you
together in a letter directed to someone else -- with whom I have serious
disagreements concerning the baseless and opinionated propaganda methods and
techniques used by that writer to make a case against the validity of the
theosophical teachings, as well as impugning the honor and credibility of its
teachers -- who no longer can defend themselves.
Please understand that, since my letters are written in a public
"theosophical" forum, my response to the anti-theosophical beliefs of that
writer rests on the writings of HPB (and the Masters she professed to
represent) -- with respect solely to their metaphysical teachings -- which I
have been interpreting, ontologically, strictly from a scientifically valid
point of view. Whatever "religious" beliefs that these teachings and their
interpretation in scientific terms may engender, I leave strictly to the
judgment of each individual student.
Respectfully and Sincerely,
Leon H. Maurer
