PL: So who decides or has decided what teaching does not'share the
KEYor BASIC tenets of HPB & her Gurus' - what great authority, TS or
otherwise claimed it thus?

PL: You say 'I thought the Aquarian keynote was individual freedom
from such Picean strictures?' - yes agreed, but you and some in the
TS hide behind the glamour of HPB's authority, compounding that with
personal declarations and assumptions. I bow down to HPB's 'author-
ity' but also recognise other teachers or 'author-ities'.
> One of the main reasons for writing "Theosophy's Shadow" was to
provide a guideline or two on how to critically examine the two sets
of teachings.Since most devotees of any persuasion are not capable
of self-criticism, much less criticism of their own beliefs,
philosophy, religion etc.; they ( and so far, you) can only see the
article as a mean-spirited attack.
Well if its not mean spirited, it primariy lacks discrimination and
is coloured by assumptions, biases, attachments and theosophical
fundamentalist conditioning. As a result one can rationalise white
as black and vice versa.
Agreed on your criticism point, but beware the shadow of the
critical mind and its tendency to separation, unalloyed with
intuition or wisdom.
The Virgo square Gemini part of the zodiac illustrates this well -
dwell too much in these polarities and their Pisces-Sagittarian
counterparts will miss the bigger picture.
