Below is a good example of the kind of generalizations BAG makes in
Does his generalization accurately portray what HPB and her Masters
"The recent claim by some Theosophists is that their teachings are
hidden behind the use of 'blinds,' but what about truth ? 'There is
no religion higher than the truth' is the Theosophical Society
motto! What is the moral character of anyone who practices and/or
accepts deception and lying as a way of life ?"
"According to the Bhakti Traditions from which Blavatsky borrowed
many of her terms, dishonesty or duplicity is considered tamasic.
Everything depends on TRUTH, and begins with SELF-TRUTH, which is
another term for HUMILITY. The very concept of scriptural 'blinds',
secret societies, and a master employing duplicity is unheard of in
the Sattvic exoteric Bhakti Traditions, in which Godhead is not an
elitist, Who is only approachable through secret societies, and wants
to 'hide.' Hiding anything is part of the function of MAYA. Human
deceit and lying which create illusions ARE 'MAYAVIC'. HPB and her
MASTERS' use of 'blinds' was pure MAYA-VADA or 'Path of Maya'
mayavic behavior. She and her Masters were masters of illusion /
maya, in that they deluded many people with their illusions."
