HI. Did Alice Bailey say the below? Madame Blavatsky claimed to be a
Mahayana Buddhist. If you stretch it really far, you could perhaps possibly
fit her into this category, at least as a person aspiring to be one, but the
person who said the below is no Buddhist, Mahayana or otherwise. Period.
There is no way to fit her into this category. So this is one noticeable
difference between the two. People on here might not think it significant,
but a Buddhist would consider her not only to be ignorant, but to be
perpetrating human suffering. Sincerely, Wry p.s. This message has nothing
to do with people in the United Nations, whoever they are. I will comment on
this later, but if you want to change the world, learn how to do
consciously. This is what real knowledge of scales (seven) can be used for.
