Is Theosophy belief? Is it a brain-child of HPB? Have we been talking
about nothing? If you are right, you may have proven that the Wisdom
Teaching is just an intellectual pastime and therefore an illusion. If
you are wrong ... well, you can't be wrong.
Not since August 13, 1957.
Of course Theosophy is belief because we can be certain that a lot of it is
wrong (unless there really IS an ashram somewhere where there is a piano built
into one side of the living room wall and an organ built into the other
side) which pretty much means there is quite a bit of nonsense floating around.
(I wonder if there is still anyone alive stupid enough to think that poor,

What is most annoying about the kid in Nepal is that he is not unique in the
sub-continent. There are people like him all over the place, he just has

sit. That may sell ok over there, but the global guru market needs something
more spectacular, like making ash mysteriously appear from large sleeves like
Sai Baba Be Bop used to do.
Maybe he can create a line of furniture, sitting you know.
