Dear Mark,

It's certainly true that credulous people may be disappointed if 
something doesn't meet their expectations. On the other hand, 
theosophists are enjoined to think for themselves, and if we want to 
do that, surely we need as much information as possible. We can 
reject something if we like. Or we can reserve judgement until we are 
satisfied that we have enough information to make a determination. In 
this case I personally would need a lot more information before I 
could come to any conclusion. If I should hear, for instance, that 
this boy or his followers were demanding money for some sort of 
services rendered, I would begin to feel a bit sceptical. But in the 
meantime, I really don't know what to think, so just try to keep an 
open mind and hope for the best. Like I said, any work toward 
increasing the awareness of the unity of all life, the cyclic nature 
of reality, the Brotherhood of humanity, has to be at least possibly 
a good thing. We need all the help we can get.
