Did Hodson, Bendit and Kunz ever claim to be great adepts? Did I
ever claim on this list that they were great adepts? Is the process
of checking and verifying the teachings of the Esoteric Philosophy
limited to Adepts only? Did they ever claim exclusivity on this or
did they encourage students to enquiry for themselves and ascertain
the truth or otherwise of the teachings imparted by them?
In answer to Perry's question, "Who checked and verified there
visions and pronouncements?", I showed that, for example, three
independent clairvoyants had verified and ascertained the existence,
nature and function of the "etheric double".
Regarding the 1900 letter to Annie Besant, it is possible to
speculate about its contents and come to the conclusion that it is a
reprimand from KH to Besant and other members of the TS at that
time. But the opening remarks show that the Master was addressing a
problem involving the whole of the Society and its members:
"A psychic and a pranayamist who has got confused by the vagaries of
the members. The T.S. and its members are slowly manufacturing a
creed. Says a Thibetan proverb `credulity breeds credulity and ends
in hypocrisy'. How few are they who can know anything about us."
Its last sentence, though, does not involve speculation since it is
a direct statement about the nature of the Masters' atittude towards
"The greatest of your trials is yet to come. We are watching over
you but you must put forth all your strength."
